Central Coast German Shepherds Basic Obedience Puppy Training. This video will show you some of the basic commands we use and how we use them so when you take your puppy home after staying with us for the Basic Obedience Training (on Leash) you will be able to continue reinforcing the skills they have learned here with us. If you do not work on these skills daily through your regular routines, your puppy will forget so, please continue to use the skills he has learned so they become life long habits for your puppy. Your effort of taking the time to make your puppy sit and wait EVERY time you open the door to take him outside and again when you bring him inside builds respect between you and your puppy and creates good habits for life! This is only one of the Basic tools we give you in the video. I hope you find this video helpful.
LEERBURG offers online training. We love their training programs and currently they are offering A FREE Trial of managing your dog in your home, family and pet introductions, using training tools, crates, leashes and so much more. Management in the home is so important and we believe more emphasis should be placed on Management even before the obedience training.

More on Training
Good sound breeding with sound temperament is where to begin but there is so much more......Basic obedience training is an essential part of responsible dog ownership. It will make your dog a better companion and will help establish a stronger bond between you and your dog. Your German Shepherd dog wants nothing more from life than to please you. Therefore, it is your responsibility to train this faithful companion to do as you wish. Training classes in obedience are available in most cities. I strongly recommend Good Dogs with Kathy Kropp for the North San Luis Obispo County areas. Kathy teaches in Paso Robles and Templeton. Kathy can be reached at 805-237-9985 or online at: www.tcsn.net/gooddogs/ Kathy offers various classes on weekends and during the week. She offers Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Obedience, Fungility, Canine Good Citizenship, Dog and Puppy Temperament Testing and More!
It is imperative that you continue to build on what we started. The first 18 weeks of a puppy's life will set the foundation as an adult. Take your puppy to Puppy Obedience! You must socialize your puppy in order to have a sound German Shepherd as an adult!
Some owners may wish to go beyond Basic Obedience and persue Advanced Obedience, enter the Show Circuit and/or Agility competitions. You may wish to train your dog for Service or Conformation Competitions. The German Shepherd Dog's desire to please humans is legendary, making it a top obedience competitor and a first-rate companion dog for adults and children. PLEASE consider Obedience training for you and your puppy! For those that are interested in the "Total Working Dog" concept of Shutzhund, I recommend you contact the GSDCA, Working Dog Association at: http://www.gsdca-wda.org/
As one of the most popular breeds in the country, you will find that the German Shepherd Dog is well respected for it's versatility. It is the breed preferred by those interested in search and rescue work, seeing eye, service, obedience or just as a good companion and of course protection for family, home and property. The extreme loyalty is our favorite trait of the German Shepherds.
