Some Kennel Training Helps a Newly Adopted Goldendoodle

For this Omaha dog training session, we did some kennel training with 2 year-old Goldendoodle Larry (Pictured here on the right along with Danni on the left and Louie in the middle).

Larry was only added to the family the day before this session as a companion for the puppy Louie. Danni splits her time between two homes and is considerably older, so the hope was that Larry and Louie will play together and cancel out each other’s energy.

We spent some time discussing the pack’s structure and I offered a number of dog behavior tips to help the human deal with some common dog behavior problems. You don’t have to be a Goldendoodle trainer or specialist to solve many of the problems these dogs had.

After going over my Petting with a Purpose and Passive training techniques, I showed the guardian how to create a special spot for Danni to keep her out of the action when the pups are playing and roughhousing.

I also shared a number of positive dog training tips to help Larry settle into the existing dog pack. While these were little things, they can add up to big things if they are implemented consistently.

Any time you are unsure how a dog will do in a new home, its wise to structure things to keep the dog safe and house from being destroyed (many dogs have signs of separation anxiety the first few days in a new home). To make sure that Larry doesn’t have any problems, I shared some positive kennel training tips with the family.

Im always astounded at how many people dont even consider that crate training is a thing. Most people simply throw the dog into the kennel, close the door and leave. But this frequently causes the dog to develop a negative association with the kennel. If you have ever seen a dog who is scared of the kennel, its likely their guardians took that approach.

But if you take your time and follow the positive crate training tips I cover in the above free dog training video, you can help any dog learn to love being in their kennel.

To help the guardian remember all of the dog behavior secrets I shared in this in home dog training session, we shot a roadmap to success video that you can check out below.
