My partner and I recently got a Vizsla puppy named Krypto. Vizslas are very energetic bird dogs and this post is really just a place for me to outline the resources and tools I'll be using to trian him. If for some reason you stumble upon this post: I'm not suggesting this is how you should raise your pup! But you might find some nuggets in here for yourself. Cheers!

Disobedience

  • Barking at you - If your dog is barking at you completely ignore it until it is quite for several seconds then give it praise.
  • Bites you - Lightly pinch snout or neck and say no, remove hands from vacinity of the dogs mouth so they can't bite, redirect by pointing out a nearby toy that the dog can bite instead. (YouTube chics video)
