Puppy Savvy Video Lesson: How to Pick Up Your Puppy

Time to shake things up! I am hereby launching a new feature that I hope will enhance life and learning for you and your dog. I am offering video lessons to correspond with the instructions in Puppy Savvy. These will be the short-and-sweet versions of the exercises from the book, so that at a glance you’ll be able to see what to do. (You’ll find troubleshooting tips and how to adjust the instructions for Bold or Bashful puppies in the book.) Some things will be very basic and some more involved, all are important for clear communication, fun and/or safety.

You’ll be able to view these videos on your computer screen or smart phone, so I am hoping they might come in handy if you’re in the yard or on the road with your little whippersnapper. Questions? Comments? Let me know what you think!

With heartfelt thanks to Sandi and the (omigosh, so adorable) Logan.

  1. Barbara, this is great. Will you do a video on how to help your puppy or old dog in and out of the back seat of the car? In your spare time… of course…

  2. Ooh, good idea! I am already having ideas pop into my head for how to film this.

    Just the other day I saw a Subaru commercial that shows a Labrador retriever hopping out of the guy’s car as they age. It is a great ad, but the getting out of the car makes me cringe in a couple of places.

    There are ways we can make our pups and seniors feel better (physically & emotionally) about getting in and out of the car, which makes them likelier to be part of our outings and adventures. Thanks for the suggestion!

      1. I hear ya, so easy to get sucked into the ads that use dogs. I bet Subaru would say that ad was about “love.” Maybe I’ll send the new vid to them so they might consider some car habits that the dog’s growing and aging body would love. 😉
