    Hi Zak! What advice do you have for teaching come when called for those of us who do not have a fenced in area? I bought a 50′ lead so we can practice in the horse pastures behind and across from the house when the horses are “at work” and not in the pasture, at least until my puppy gets to meet horses one on one and only horses who are not aggressive toward dogs. Some horses have been terrorized by dogs when they were babies and get their revenge once they are bigger so even though they are prey animals, some will aggressively go after a dog. The horse pastures have one strand of electric wire about 3 feet above the ground, they would not keep a dog in. Any other suggestions? I should also mention I’m in the Adirondacks and my puppy will be coming at 9 weeks at the end of January approximately so it will be really cold and snowy out so I don’t see us spending long periods of time outside. Thanks.

    Loving this series! I got a new pup last week and our homework for puppy school is coming when called, so this is great timing for me! Keep up the good work! 🙂

    I’m getting a new dog soon, so these videos really help. Thank you.

  5. Alex

    I’ll hopefully get a puppy next year if this pandemic is under control so these videos are very helpful. Thanks so much for your hard work Zak!

  6. Sean Engler

    I have a Shibu Inu and having trouble with him chasing our cats. Is there a video out there that zak teaches that or does anyone have advise.

  7. Timothy Keenley

    the reason Kona doesn’t like the grass is that the leash drags her a lot on grass and pulls her back, ha!

  8. Amol Kaveeshwar

    I am going to get a dog when I am 13

  9. Samantha Hu

    I love the way kona sits, like she’s leaning back a little. So cute!

  10. Jazleny Regalado

    Is there a video where you teach your puppy to stay and come? I want to learn how to teach them that because my puppy ran out the door on the street but we managed to get her.

    Can you do a video going over dog body language? Trainers always talk about how important it is to understand dog body language but never go over everything you need to know about it. Either way, your videos are super helpful!!!

    I was so eagerly waiting for this. Thank you so much Zak

  16. Mrs Geography

    I have a new puppy and I am struggling to get him to listen after play for some brief training no matter what “currency” I use (chicken/treats/play) – any advice?

  17. Brielle Bigmall

    Anybody don’t have a dog but just prepping

  18. Monty Montaño

    This is a great series. Training a puppy from the beginning, including failures is so helpful. One thing that I added to Zak’ s method was hand signals so whenever I said come I would beckon him too. For stay I would add an open palm aimed at his face. It really comes in handy when you’re distracted speaking to someone or you don’t want to yell.

  19. ray dayer

    Just watched Come When Called video and you said in the first year “provide an amazing reward 100% of the time”. What about making the dog treat dependent….?

  20. joymrm

    Wouldn’t it be awesome to get 3 mil by 2021???? These tips are also very helpful im getting a puppy soon and this is such a good reference!

  21. Maja-

    Can I teach this on a 1,5 year old dog? My dalmatian is full of energy and I want him to run free but he doesn’t come back to me at all. He goes after other dogs to play and that’s when I can grab him. Please help.. I got him at 3 months and it’s been a struggle ever since. It’s really hard to un-teach what he already learned. I tried so much and I won’t give up but it’s very frustrating sometimes. I want the best for him.. and for me too.

  22. Jalypeno

    Zak always has the freshest kicks on when he trains. 😂👍

  23. Corgi Love

    “Ha! I didn’t expect that!”

    “Well, of course I expected that, I’m a dog trainer”

  24. F1GHT3R TW1NS

    I love this channel

  25. Charlie Hutton

    How many treats can u reasonably give a young puppy in a day ?

  26. Charlie Hutton

    Why don’t you use a clicker for kona ?

  27. Veronika C

    My westie girl (6 months) wont come to me when called, when she is off leash on the backyard. She is a very stubborn puppy. Really dont know how to teach her the come command… 🤷‍♀️

  28. Corgi Love

    Yes! My favorite youTuber with a new video! You have been my idol for the last three years, and helped me convince my parents to get a little corgi puppy named Toby in a couple months, any advice?

  29. Katie Smelt

    I’m so great full to have zac cos we got a dog a week ago and she still hasn’t learnt ree call but this vid has helped a lot

  30. Kathy Newman

    You have been a lifesaver Zak! Thanks for all the training tips. 😍

  31. Loviekinz

    I wish Zak could meet my 1 husky. She’s 3 now, but legit she isn’t motivated to come with ANYTHING. Not food, not toys, when she’s outdoors she’s a huge pain to get indoors which is why I use a leash even in my backyard. My other husky is VERY food motivated, so I keep special cookies near the door for her. But my other husky, I basically have to trick her and catch her to get her inside….

  32. Keisha Smith

    I’m getting my puppy in less than a month and your videos are really helpful!

  33. Olivia Morris

    My dog was a rescue and he came to me as SUCH an obedient dog! He’d come when I called, he’s come to his name, he wouldn’t bark or be territorial. I followed Zak’s training and it was great! He did so well that I started slacking and now he’s DEgressed 😫😭 He’s learned bad habits from my roommates’ dogs (and from me, too, honestly). I’m so happy for this video so that I can re-focus with my dog and keep up the training for a YEAR rather than a short amount of time. Thanks Zak!!

  34. EduTwork

    Ugh YouTube doesn’t notify me.. anyway thanks for the new video!

  35. lior13a

    My pitbull puppy never had a puppy biting phase and all her teeth are already replaced. Does this mean that there is something wrong with her or am I just really lucky ?

  36. Avash Timsina

    Went to see my Labradoodle pup yesterday. Picking him up next week.

  37. James Dean

    I want to make my pup a ‘support’ dog for nursing homes and the like, his very gentle, as in I can almost lift him by his ears and even when I start to get upset his still ok. I’ve pushed past and really challenged him and only got a basic wriggle or run away.
    His amazing, but he is a little too energetic for meeting people. How do we ‘chill him out, so he can get all those cuddles he wants?

  38. thoihen

    Hi zak! I’m a big fan of your videos and we are getting a beagle puppy. Kona is super cute!

  39. James Dean

    ZAC – What’s your opinion on the use of ‘clicker’ training?

  40. W Protasowicki

    My dog is horrible at come. I’ll reference this video when I’m training her. You have such useful content!

  41. James Dean

    Have to say my favourite thing about all your videos, is seeing your failures. Because it’s so easy to edit them out but a true teacher shows failure. Because that’s how we learn, I also love that you show many different ways in this and other videos. Myself I have found that (my pup is very good fyi) sometimes if he really does wrong a simple growl (throat grumble) has an amazing effect.
    Have only had to strike (smack) him once, that involved him going to chew a power cable and having already been told not to. For the net haters it worked ( i cried a bit) but he has never been near them since. And while I would like to remove them, its not possible.

  42. Sophie N

    i was literally trying to teach this to my dog today 🙂

  43. Fa Bl

    My dog has learned so many tricks because of Zak’s George’s videos!!
    I have tried with other videos but these are the best, for any dog!💗

  44. Jorge Araujo

    Hey George. Do you have any advice for a 2 year old who wont stop smeeling the ground when on walks? He didn’t use to do this.

    What brand was your 50ft biothane lead u had in ur last episode?

  48. blah bleh

    I have a two-year-old lab who is super great, but this series has come at the right time- it’s reminded me to brush up on the things she learnt when she was a puppy, and come when called is one of them. Because of the virus, we haven’t been in public places as much, so recall in public is being retrained all over again. Also, I echo the suggestion of others- it would be super cool for you to do this with an older rescue dog.

  64. Pratibha Nair

  70. Izzy Crean

    Some dogs pick it up a lot easier than others. Never had to teach my border collie recall or to walk off leash she just did it herself from the day I got her but I had to work really hard with my lab to get them both reliable

  71. Ashley B

    Kona is so adorable! And these are good exercises.

    Coming when called is the most important thing ever! My golden got out and was staring down a deer and wanted to chase it. He was about to when I called him and he came right back. He got a bit of my hot dog for that because he was amazing.
