How to Train a Poodle : Teach Your Poodle to Stay Using These Dog Obedience Training Tips


Hi! I’m Melanie McLeroy with Taurus Training
for Expert Village, and today we’re going to talk about training dogs. This standard
poodle is going to be a challenge to teach how to stay because she’s been leaping about
like a circus dog, especially with all the squirrels and birds around her today. So she’s
going to need more food reinforcement than you might see in some of the other videos.
Keep in mind that different methods work on different dogs, so if something isn’t working
for you and your dog, check out something else on Expert Village. So Aida, Aida… need
to get her attention and she’s squirrel hunting, I need to use some food to get her
attention, sit, ump… sit, good. Since Aida does have a challenge keeping her bottom on
the ground, she’s what we call a popcorn dog, I’m going to work with the sit rather
than the down, sit. Now, this is a very good demonstration of how to work with a dog that’s
extremely distracted. See how I’m moving my body around between her and the yard with
the squirrels. I’m trying to keep her focus on me by controlling her attention, good.
When she pays attention to me, and especially when she checks in, good, I’m going to give
her a treat. Now, this method does make dogs a little more dependent on treats than other
methods to teach them the stay, but just be patient and be gradual. Notice that there’s
longer and longer periods in between the time I’m giving her the treat. Good, and moving
my body around can help her pay attention to me. Now I’m going to do a body block,
get her back to the same place she was when I first gave her the command, and then give
the command when she is paying enough attention to set her up to succeed. …Aida,… yippee,
all right, ha… ha… I won, sit, good. It’s not easy to compete with the squirrel. Aida,
good, good, I have her attention, she’s in a sit, we’re ending this session on a
success. We’re going to go on to teach the standard poodle how to come.

    Well I am a standard Poodle owner and they are great but paps are good little dogs don't be down on it train it to do agility and have fun. Someday you may get a Standard but work with what you have.

    Using food reward is just one method to train dogs but dogs do not get fat because of them alone they get fat because people do not work their dogs and they let them lay around bored. The dog in the video is not fat and neither is my standard at home and he free eats but he has a job.

    I think this trainer failed in proffing in low distraction places FIRST.The dog is not in tune to her at all,she is missing the chance to reward at the proper time and is using food as a bribe only.
    The dog is too close to the distraction.

    This is a good start, and I think it is ment to learn other peopel how to start working. I can also see that this dog is to distracted, and sometimes you need to train with distraction. But if you are a beginner, you need to start up in a easy place with out to many distractions. The reward must come at the rigth second and not to or tre sedonds after the dog did rigth. If youre dog act like this you better go to another place. Clikker is a good way to reward the dog. Learn how se it first.

    Do Not Use Food. Standard Poodles are the smartest of dogs- requires a smart trainer, and this one isn't. Read Winifred Gibson Strickland's books – or Blanche Saunders if you want to know how to train.
