    Zak, I just adopted a rescue puppy a little over a week ago from the local Human Society. Watching your videos has been extremely informative (and you have some KILLER kicks as well haha!). Thank you for providing all of us the tools to raise healthy and well behaved dogs!

    How do you help a dog not be afraid of pooping? I got sick a few weeks ago and got behind in grooming and we had a cold weather snap, so poo ended up freezing to some of his long hair a couple of times. He will not poop all in one go now, as I’m pretty sure he’s afraid it will “bite” him again. He poops a little bit and jumps away, then poops a little more and jumps away again. It wouldn’t be too bad(other than not great for living life) but he is going to have to learn to eliminate on command and ideally he shouldn’t be pooping in several different places in one potty break.

    Love the shoes. I have 27 pairs of runners.

  4. E Williams

    I love the puppy advice and shoe highlight!

  5. Chiannachan

    Thank you for continuing to update us on Kona. <3 I love this series.
    I'll be bringing home my puppy on Saturday next week. I am so nervous. Watching your videos helps me calm down and it makes me feel as if there is a solution to all potential problems - and that I'll probably find it here XD Still. *so nervous* >>.<<

  6. Heather Todd

    For my dog, putting a blanket or crate cover over the crate really helped.

  7. Charlie Gottschalk

    Do you have any dog crate recommendations? I’m getting things for a new puppy :))

  8. Charlie Gottschalk

    Dude your shoe game is fire tho!

  9. Todd Howard

    Going to get a Saint Bernard puppy sometime (soon) in the future… This makes me feel more prepared 🙂

  10. Sheryl Gim

    Thanks to Zak we’ve never had major problems with separation anxiety as we started doing these tips a week after we got our dog.

  11. Monika Panek

    Where is indy?

  12. Jocelyn Rivera

    I want my first job to be a pet sitter 😂😂😂

  13. THE Jazzy Jazz Channel

    ya good doogy my puppy is 9weeks old

  14. amouramarie

    I don’t know if Zak’s always had that tyrannosaur skull and I’m just unobservant, but that is rad. :O I love this series especially as I’m getting a female standard poodle pup myself next year if all goes well. 🙂

  15. Maya Diaz

    who else got super chewer or barkbox ads while watching this lol

  16. TheNew1994

    How do you balance letting them whine and eventually self soothe in the cage with knowing that they need to pee? I’m struggling with letting my boy out and watching him just run straight for the bed with letting him out cause he needs to pee.

  17. ed

    we all know zak’s a nike guy. He probably bought the adidas purely to be chewed on

  18. Monica Del Vecchio

    What breed is Kona?

    This series is dragging on too long

  21. Zhana Cox

    So glad the potty training part is over 😭😭
    But I can’t get my dog to stop barking at my mom, I think it’s something about her 🤔

  22. PhantomKyC

    Can you please do a video of potty training but a more advanced one I have many problems with my puppy she does pee sometimes in her pee pee pad but she mostly doesn’t but im doing everything right I think i praise and treat her when she does and carry her to it when she doesnt plsss help meeee!

  23. viktor halaj

    Yesterday I got a puli puppy. My family won’t allow him to be in the house other than sleeping through the night. I wanted to at least make him something like a guard dog. But it’s snowing outside and I am not sure if puli puppies can be left outside throughout the night in cold weather. He is sleeping now in a room inside but when he gets older and gets accustomed to people and environment can he stay outside in the winter?

  24. Creative Diamond Dogs

    After a little while of crate training my collie (18 months a next Sunday), she accepted the crate at night pretty easily. I don’t think it was long before was was fine from bedtime until morning.

  25. Corgi Love

    I am so happy to see you with ANOTHER video! I have been watching you for three years and have binge watched your entire inertia series, and now your one about Kona. You are by far my FAVORITE youTuber ever!

  26. Otis The Half-Obedient Husky臭臉哈士奇

    We’ve learned a lot of of our training tips from Zak since we got our puppy Otis when he was two months old. And now he’s been improving from 0% obedient to a half obedient husky 😆

  27. Siggi Matos

    Hi, Zak. Just got a puppy – going to be with me three weeks before taking her to my parents in Denmark. She’s 9 weeks old 9,8kg (21,7lbs), willful but completely uninterested in treats (be it food or chicken). Guess it’s just too early. Should I give her more time to settle out of her mother and siblings? How long till she would have a more intense appetite and ‘accept treats for educational purposes’?
    Thx in advance.

  39. Preserve Travel

    Hi Zak! What brand is your 10ft leash?

  40. Emily Romeril

    Hey Zak! Question. (In regards to resource guarding) After training like this for several months, should we ever get to the point where we CAN just take away the bone from their mouth without luring with reinforcement? Let’s say they grab a big piece of plastic during a walk… Should we always do the steps of throwing a treat out first, in every instance their whole life? I hope that makes sense.

    Thank you as always for posting amazing videos. I use them daily! 🙂

  41. Becky Ernst

    Love your videos!
    Okay, you broke me down to check out the BarkBox. It seems to be a great deal. Thank you for all you do to help us be better parents to our fur babies.

    Hi. My dog is 7 months old now. He is a cross breed( mother- jungly dog and father-doberman). He becomes ferocious at night and always eat the stuff like paper wires etc when we try to make him roam for sometimes and always bites. He is not eating properly these days. We’re giving medicines to him and also training him. We don’t understand what to do next. Please suggest!

    Do you have any tips on training a samoyed? My new puppy (about 4 months right now). She currently knows sit, up, down, come, shake and her name. Were having trouble on stay and jumping on people. I dont think she understands “no” though so not sure what to do.

    Hey Zak! My 8 month old super hyper Labrador has a couple issues that I would like you to touch on. He bites and nips at us when he’s either upset, tired or just bored, he doesn’t hurt us but it’s scaring away some of our friends. Any way to stop him in the act of biting?
