Training Collar Guide: Pick the training collar that best suits your pet

Puppy In Training TV – Ep2 – Take Your Dog To Work

PuppyInTraining.com Colby talks about the importance of taking a guide dog puppy to work and how Ascolta, a technical training company, allows him to bring Dublin to work everyday as a part of his guide dog puppy training. Dublin gets used to his new home environment and learns some of the basics including house training, crate training, and waiting for his food.

  • I’m glad you found our video again…sorry it took so long. I love looking back at the videos of Dublin when he was a puppy.

  • thanks for checking out our video! As a small puppy he was always on leash or tie down next to my desk. I kept a close eye on him and took him out several times a day. He learned quickly that he wasn’t supposed to potty in the office. I talked all our employees and made sure they wait until he is calm before petting. When Dublin was really young I had to hold his collar until he stopped lunging towards his food. As soon as he stopped for a split second I let him eat his food.

  • Awesome training! Although I won’t be getting a puppy for years when I move out and get settled, I’m sure this video will be very helpful 🙂
    a few questions; how did you stop him from relieving himself at work, as he wasn’t in a crate, and getting him to stay so still? didn’t he get distracted by other people? and what did you initally do when he didn’t wait for your OK to eat his food and stay in his crate? He s
    must be the perfect puppy if he did that all himself!

  • we’re working on a few videos right now and we will hopefully have one uploaded in the next day or two. We do use German Shepherd Dogs as Guide Dogs in our group. However, the majority are Labrador Retriever.

  • can you post more videos and do they ever use german sherphard dog?

  • I have seen Growing up Guide Pup…Ricki and Amie do an awesome job on their show and they have an episode every week! We’re trying to get more episodes together and hope to get to the point where we can do a Puppy In Training TV video at least every other week.

    I’m glad you like our videos and let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see in our upcoming videos.

  • hopefully we get to see you sometime at one of the events. Maybe open house?

  • We attend the Sylmar group meetings which are still about 60 miles from our house. Those are the closest to us though. We might also check out the Westside meetings.

  • thanks! I’m glad you liked the videos. We attend the Orange County group meetings and we’ve been thinking about attending some of the others to meet other puppy raisers and give Dublin some different experiences. What group meetings do you usually attend?

  • Love the videos! Maybe I’ll see you at a meeting!

  • Dublin definitely eats like a lab. All of our Labrador Retrievers have gobbled their food down. In fact, Stetson used to eat so fast we bought him a special bowl to slow down his eating. We even put together a short video review on our PuppyInTraining blog.

  • He might have been waiting paitiently, but he sure wasn’t eating patiently….he was gobbling up food as fast as he could!…Such a lab!

    Keep up the good work
