We have an 3 year old cockapoo - but we got her at a year old so she was fairly trained.
So now we have a 10 week old cockapoo too... and wonder when to really start training or is it a process?
Since he was the last of the litter, he spent time with the breeders other dogs. so he knows NO = we've only had him for 5 days and seemed to pick up on is name right away even though its different than what the breeder was calling him. He somewhat has started to sit for treats when he comes in from outside. Ive started him on a leash- to train for walking- when i take him out. Hes doing ok.
I dont want to overwhelm him. but wonder is one command a week to start too much? thanks!

from the moment he came into the house his training started. just kdep trying new things, once he does something well move on to the next then start to mix it up doing things he knows and new things, make it into a game, sit, down, stay, come, fetch, leave, walking to heal, are all things he should easily pick up o ever the next wee while and it will giv you a head start if you taking him to puppy class.


now where ard the photos of your two, wee want photos lol.

We got Millie at 9weeks and she was very keen to want to learn and please. Cockapoos are bright dogs so go with it and teach them loads.

I'm new to dog owning so actually got the dog trainers to pay me a home visit during the 'not allowed out stage due to vaccinations'. That really helped as I got on with clicker training. As soon as I could I went to puppy classes.

Millie is now just 5 months old and pretty good. When out walking I always get complimented on how well behaved she is, how pretty she is, etc - ahh the pride :D

We're now waiting for Improver Class to start in a few weeks.

I promised hubby that Millie would be so well trained she'll bring him his drink in the evening!!. I don't like to ask which training class that lesson is included in ;)

what is this vacination stage? i have never heard of it. Dino has only had two shots from the breeder... he will get another in 4 weeks. He around Pebbles the three year old - fully uptodate on shots and two barn cats-who do not have shots.
So hes not to be around other dogs right now?
On the training- he does seem to be learning quickly! We will keep working right away then.
I dont see the picture album upload on the cp or would share pics!:(

I think vaccinations differ in different locations (because of what diseases are prevalent in those areas), but here in the UK they generally get two jabs, one at around 8 weeks and one two weeks after that. Vets tell you not to take the puppy out of your house/garden at all until a week after the second jab, although they do offer puppy parties for puppies who have all had their first jabs - generally on their premises so they clean the floor first and make sure no germs. If they have to go out, they advise you to carry them and not to put them down on the floor.

Some people allow their puppies to meet other fully vaccinated dogs in between the jabs, so they can be socialised - I think the main problem would be in taking the puppy out where you have no control over what dogs have been there before him/her and what germs they have left on the ground.

But I have no idea how this relates to the situation in the US!

I see - thanks for explaining. I just talked to my vet to set up Dino's next shots. We had planned to go out of town with him this weekend- so am glad we changed that to stay home. He will get his next shots before we travel and his last set and borditello-before our next bigger trip.
