Q. I have a two month old puppy that has no treat or enough toy drive, thus I can't do luring, crate training, etc. Any advice please?
Hi Cindy, I have a two month old puppy that has no treat or enough toy drive. Thus I can't do luring, crate training, etc. He is also very slow eater with same food from breeder. Have never experienced this before so I am a bit perplexed. Any advice please?

A. This is very common. I wouldn't worry about doing any type of luring or anything right now. If he's only 2 months old, you likely just got him so just let him settle in and get acclimated to his new living situation . He may be eating slowly because he's missing the competition of his siblings.

How long have you had him?

  Response:

Thanks for the fast reply. We are three days in. I thought I was expecting too much, but in my excitement I wanted to ask you. I am a new client and am enjoying the Ellis video and several of your products. Your fast response will certainly bring me back. Thanks again.

  Follow-Up Response:

There are some puppies that come into a new environment and will do everything right away, but the vast majority of puppies need some time to acclimate.

Thanks for your business, we truly appreciate it ! I'm here if you need suggestions or recommendations, although since it's just me that answers these sometimes the response isn't QUITE so fast.. (but I do my best haha)

Enjoy the new puppy!

Marker training (also called clicker training or operant conditioning) is one of the most profound systems of dog training that I have seen in my 50 years of owning, breeding and training working dogs. In its most basic form, it's a method of communication that is very clear for dogs to understand. Dogs learn the marker language quickly and when they do they thrive in training. The marker system produces dogs that love to train.
