    I ordered one bag of Solid Gold and I think I am good on dog food for the next year.

    I don’t see the related videos in the description

    great video 🙂 My Aussie puppy is 3 month now and she is doing well. But my friend is warning me about the puberty time xD. Did Inertia had some kind of Puberty behavior like ignoring commands, rebelling?

  6. Liv Vernazza

    Love your vids Zak I’m from England and I love dog training I would hope to have a job with dogs like police dog handler or something 🙂 your videos really help and I love you enthusiasm ( and inertia / Indy )

    I’m going to get a dog in a year or so I am still in school and I want to know if I can leave a puppy if I exercise and train all the time that I’m with her well most of the time anyway. Do you think that me spending 6 hours a day at school and around 8-10 hours with him or her. Really appreciate these videos. Thank you in advance.

    I taught my Australian Shepherd a trick called “Report” where i’m standing up with my legs spread apart a bit and i say “report” and she runs under my legs and sits, while still under me. It would be so cool if you could teach Inertia that trick too!!

    You and this set gives me heavy blue’s clues vibes

    So handy for puppies homed in lockdown and owners now going back to work after lockdown is lifted.

  12. Cristine Montpetit

    You have a serious demeanor but man do I think your hilarious! I feel like Inertia is a perfect representation of yourself ❤

  13. Alexandra Ashley

    Question: Hey Zak, my husband and I are adopting two German Shepherd puppies from the same litter next momth. I have heard a lot about “littermate syndrome.” How do you recommend we avoid this? We both work full time jobs but have made a schedule to allow for good amounts of training and play time before and after work and while on lunch break. When we are both at work, however, should the puppies be allowed to be together in the same room or play pen? Thanks!

    What dog food do you buy Zak?  Your still the best

    Is there an app for watching your dog or a device?

  20. Henriette Såstad Henriksen

    This entire series has been great so far!
    I actually ordered your book first and from there ended up watching all the videos and ordering your second book.

    I am so happy to have found resources that mirror my own belief that dogs needs love and care not punishment.

    We are getting a new puppy tomorrow and I have gotten so many new ideas.
    It has also been great for my younger children who do not remember the last family dog and the older one has been super engaged and curious.

  21. Hellia

    I am learning a
    lot of things thanks.

  22. Boss Hoss

  24. Ted M Mutie

  25. Pugsey Co

    Hey Zak I have a question… (anyone else can answer too) which is the best type of grass for a new puppy? Because we are moving into a new house and we are getting a border collie. It would be helpful to get an answer! Many thanks 😊

  26. Reverse Droxxzy

    Your videos really help thanks my training has been doing very well

  27. Ayman Saeed

    Great topic really👌👍😊.
    Thanks a lot.

    Please could you make videos related to How picking out a great German shepherd puppy ? ( Original Showline & Bloodlines Breed – Long Hair ) ? Or Bcs It’s not related to your training topics, you can’t do it ?
    Thanks a lot.👌😊

  28. Srinivasan Aravamudan

    How are alpha and venus?

  29. Pata P

    The title of the video and the video itself was very misleading. Wish there was more information. The “what I did” “what worked” “how to problem solve xyz” etc is missing.

  30. Kaia English

    I just got a border collie/Australian shepherd puppy and your videos are a lifesaver! I was so excited to have videos to watch that are with a dog similar in breed

  31. bugbug C

    zak can you help, my dog never chews our stuff when were here but when we arent she always chews our stuff. she even jumps on my desk to get at my highlighters. how can i prevent this when she doesnt even do it infront of me

  32. Naomi F

    I’ve let my 7 month old puppy alone in my bedroom for about an hour a few times now. There seem to have been no destruction, he just barks when I leave, but sleeps when I come back. Could I leave him alone for longer times or is he too young?

  33. Aarif Badat

    I dont even have a dog but this is entertaining 🖒🖒

  34. 4 ChipS

    Hi Zak, I love your videos. I’ve been binge watching your episodes because I’m getting a mini goldendoodle in August. Thanks!

  38. Lauren Prescott

    Hey Zak, my fiancé and I are wondering if you have ever considered making some longer video? We love your content but always find ourselves a little disappointment by how brief they are. Especially since you only release one (occasionally two) per week. We are solid fans, we have purchased both your books, are using your 30 day perfect pup, have signed up for Pupford and Barkbox, and overall just adore you. We just would really love to have some more in depth/longer videos to enjoy after waiting a week for your content. I hope this is something you will consider.

  39. Tessa Phillips

    That was the shortest 8 mins of my life

  40. Aditya Sharma

  49. MrAwesomePantsX

    Any advice on what to do differently when it comes to getting a 3.5 month puppy as opposed to getting a 8-week old puppy?


    Hi zak George! I don’t have a dog yet but I have watched all your videos. I love inertia as well. She is the best trained dog I have ever seen. Can you please make a video in which u explain the schedule of inertia. I am your biggest fan. Please respond to my request. Pls, pls, pls, pls,
