How to Start Training a New Dog FAST!

I recently stopped by a local shelter here in New Orleans, Animal Rescue New Orleans, to work with some dogs who are in need of a great home! Dogs like this are so appreciative of attention from people and that makes most them super easy to begin training immediately! I wanted to make this video to show you that the majority of shelter dogs are very receptive to learning.

If you have worked with, adopted, volunteered for, or donated to rescue dogs, thank you.

    I have a rescue dog. Just adopted a week ago. He is 2yrs old, not too fond of my Husband or my sons. He was fine with them on the first and second day but has snipped and tried to bite twice. He is perfect with me, I'm totally his person. How can I help him understand the rest of the family is ok, safe and trusting.

    I adopted an abused dog but our home training isnt going as smoothly as hoped. She was left outside in a kennel for 3 years and I'm guessing hit because she cowers at even getting petted. But… she was potty trained when we got her but now she will not go to the bathroom outside!! Never! After hours if outside, she comes in and goes potty within minutes!! I am at my wits end! I am binge watching for help!! Youmake it look so easy! I hope something helps because I just dont no what else to do!! Thanks

    A week ago me and my parents went to check out some dogs at our shelter.

    So walking in i had a gameplan since i watch your videos. BUT the second we see a the dog (6 month old mixed breed (honestly he looks like some sort of sheppherd with short hair)) who is in this larger kennel with 3 other smaller dogs (whomst he his protecting/ cuddles with them) we chose to take him for a “test walk”.

    Now at first (in the kennel) he seemed very reserved and very calm, but the second we let him out to introduce ourselves he started jumping to lick us (it was adorable) he did this for 20 minutes, at first he didn’t respond to anything but he came to us very fast and was aggressively nice (its a good thing).

    Anyway to cut a long story short, we’re taking him home the next weekend hopefully and Zak you better help me train this good boy 🙂

    I just adopted a dog from hoarding situation and he has ptsd, his story is a bit long, but he is super sweet. I want to do some training with him but I am not exactly sure where to start. He was living with my friend for a while and she did some training but I would like to continue it. He very fearful a lot of the time, and idk if he just hasnt because he doesnt feel safe, but he wont eat treats or anything outside of my house. He is also a finicky eater so I am not even sure what I can use for treats. I have one treat he likes that I use for when he comes back inside after he used the potty outside that he LOVES, but I dont want him to get tired of that treat if I use it too much.

    If you or anyone has some advice about what my best options are I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank You,
    Ashley

    I have an American Bulldog that I rescued from an illegal breeder. I had to spend months training him. Today it paid off. He followed my sit command while a chihuahua ran at him while it was being trained.

    Thank you for sharing! My husband and I adopted a high energy shepherd mix three weeks ago and I have been really struggling with how to keep him engaged, as I haven't found his favorite toy yet and he's not super food motivated. Your video gave me a few great new tips.

    the dog i grew up with came from a rescue with no name, no information, and was abused. When my family adopted her she was almost 3 years old and was the greatest dog anyone could ask for! She ended up living to be 18!!

    I currently have 2 rescues one I found on the side of the road covered in ticks and eating road kill and the other, pitbull mix, I adopted from a local animal shelter here in GA. I'm currently trying to train the shelter pup to become a service animal to help with my anxiety and mobility problems. All my dogs are my babies though!

    Very helpful! I fell in love with a dog a friend is looking to re-home but he's 2 and has had very little training. Seeing the last dog adapt to leash training gave me such relief! And gosh she's gorgeous!

    I just rescued a 7 month old beagle mix pup that apparently spent his whole life in a cage. We are attempting to house break him and he's so used to peeing in the cage. He's going about 50% outside right now but still pees in his bed any ideas on how to get him to stop. Every dog I've ever had has always avoided peeing where they sleep but because this was his norm he's still doing it.

    My family and I were on holidays early this year, around Jan, and we were heading up to Darwin, along the was we stopped to see my Auntie and there was this Amstaff and chihuahua in the yard next to hers that had been there for two years on their own. So my parents and I – on our way home – got the female Amstaff desexed and took them home. They have been with us almost two months now and I am starting to train the big girl now that she isn't as skinny as she was and she is definitely happier. The Chihuahua is now my parents dog, he sleeps with them and everything. They are happy healthy dogs and believe it or now they get along great with our two older dogs. When we first got them home it wasn't so great but with a few soft muzzles and a lot of time together they actually play all the time now with no muzzles, no leads, no fighting and definitely no more growling. I am not teaching the big girl everything she needs to know and more and she is gaining weight amazingly, she was only 20kgs when we took her to the vet and even with it being her first interaction outside of the overgrown yard they were in, when another dog entered she was perfectly fine, she lowered herself to the grown and never once growled. She's doing AMAZING so far, very happy we picked her up. The Chihuahua has also gained weight, from 1kg to 2.5kg in 2 months, we need to cut down on feeding him a little. He has an awesome temperament, he never really goes anyone and he only really growls or snarls at us when he is exhausted in which case we discipline him for snarling and trying to bite but we allow the grow in small non threatening manners as his way of saying "alright, enough now, I want bed" If I could show before and after photos I would.

    We just rescued a Pittie girl. She is so sweet and we’ll behaved! She is so skinny, never had her nails cut, her white fur is stained yellow from sitting in her pee. Her crate is rusted from her peeing on the metal crate bottom. We are working on the basics with sit first. Takes her a bit but she eventually gets it.

    The rescue dog ive met always had social issues and would almost cry if you got too close. But it was so funny she seemed to forget all that fear the second i had a treat for her. If the dog is going to be so careful with people im pretty sure them giving you treats wont be a garuntee theyre any better, and they go back to being careful afterwards anyway.

    I have a rescue dog situation currently 💚😁he came along thru a friend who just had him penned up outside and wasn't able to feed him. He's skinny but doing much better in the 2 weeks I've had him 👍he's supper smart, catches on quick but has absolutely no house manners, which we are currently working on. I think everyone should give those guys a chance, shelter animals are the best. Even the ones no one fools with like in our situation, SHARE THE LOVE ! 💚🐾🐾

    My gf and I rescued a pit yesterday! They considered him a "bad puppy" for always biting at the leash and being a very hyper dog but having had him for 2 days now and following your tips he's only done it once! He's doing so well! Thanks for all the advice!

    We recently rescued a Lab/pittie mix puppy from a bad living situation. She is doing remarkably well so far. Basically leaning how to play since she never much human contact. Do you have a video on how to help me teach her play biting/jumping is NOT OK. Since this is the only contact she had up to this point, it is our biggest problem. I have been making her go back to a sit posistion, kinda refocus,,,,thanks so much
