He is always overly excited when doing tricks. Especially with the camera like this. How can I get him to focus?

Whoa! What a smart little puppy - he's doing so well! :-) Good job, looks like you've taught him well. I know how hard it is to train little puppies, lol! Good job, this is the cutest video ever

He's so awesome! I just love his face. He's still young and will be rambunctious. I remember when Eowyn was that hyper. Always jumping up trying to get the treat. Lol, cute puppy days. But like Karen said try the 'Watch me' command. Ask him to watch you and when he gives you eye contact give him the treat. If he doesn't make eye contact, try holding the treat next to your eyes. I heard sometimes that works. You should ask him to sit and when he does and make him stay there for a while, he'll probably watch you so reward him. That might increase his focus, but not too much since he's still a pup! He's doing so well though for his age. I bet he'll be very good at it when he gets older. Good luck!

Okay...here comes the trainer in me... When teaching Cheez-it, use the command once. Don't repeat without correction. "Lay Down." No reponse..."Nope (oops...whatever), Lay Down." Use that correction inbetween commands. Repeating commands does a couple of things: 1. it changes the command from "Lay Down" to "lay down, lay down, lay down, lay down." 2. It makes the command sound like the teacher on Charlie Brown. "blah blah blah Cheez-it, blah blah." Use precise commands with correction and reward. His still a little guy, but he's learning really well!!

tell him good boy when he lays down!! haha he doenst know that was good! but then that might just get him more excited... lol. hmmm.

oohhh in class they teach them "watch me" to focus. Say "Watch me" then once he makes eye contact, reward him (first you take a treat put it high near your eyes so he gets the idea, and the idea is to gradually move the treat down to waist level and have him look at your eyes instead of the treat).. It'll teach him that he needs to pay attention to you to get treats. It's really good for later when you teach Stay, cause he'll be super attentive when you need him to learn this important command!

=D hes getting so big - the chubbiness is so cute! hahaha Bailey has his ears turning like radar/sattellites right now. haha

i know that whole thing too - like hell do it perfect and then ill try to get him to roll over for hte camera and he doesnt do it. hahhahahaha.. =D

oo baileys used to the camera now. before he used to be interested in eating it, but now hell leave it alone. i take like a bazillion pictures, so its just a matter of him getting used to it?

ok good luck! cant wait to see more tricksssss young cheezyyy

Long time ago in class, we were taught to say the command, then not repeat the command, we only re-affirm it by saying "hurry", the trainer said it will sound "less bossy" . Deep down you pup knows what you want, but try give the command in a firm manner and see if it gets better.

I swear he can do it on the first command ! But only when he feels like it.
