Dog training videos

To help you train your puppy or dog, we have prepared some short video clips showing the teaching of basic commands.

The clips feature Justin Jordan and Red, the Queensland Rugby Union junior mascot.

In each video, notice how Justin uses the placement of his hand containing the treat to guide Red, while saying the command word.  Repeat a few times, and ensure you finish the session with your dog with positive praise.  If you continue to practice commands each day, your dog can quickly learn to perform each command.
