We had some awesome people here let us do some filming of their puppy for training videos.

These videos will show you the progression of a Lab Puppy working from the top end of the Energy Spectrum where we start on Long Line Recall to the lower end of the Energy Spectrum on Stay. Dogs are capable of learning very quickly and are able to sustain long periods of training. Many trainers say you should only train a dog for 5-10 minutes. I myself find they can train for much longer. You may hit a plateau at a particular exercise so you can switch to another.

Some of these videos are longer in length to show the whole process. I have listed key time frames on the side so you can fast forward to those areas if you choose. The written time frames also help convey the patience and the speed at which a dog will learn.
