This video shows an eight month old puppy that is working on his off-leash training. The long line is on the dog for safety since he has only been training for about two weeks. Notice the calm demeanor of the trainer, Suburban K-9 trains household dogs without using excitement or lures except when appropriate. When training the average young dog, the goal is to teach him to listen even when the trainer is not the most exciting thing around. Trainers that rely exclusively on excitement eventually run into trouble when they realize that they are not more exciting to the dog than squirrels or other dogs or bikes.
