Hey everybody c:

Hello! I'm an eighteen-year-old dog enthusiast from north america.
We currently have one small family dog in my house, and I just met the pup who'll grow up to be the first dog I've raised from a puppy myself:



He's an apricot-colored standard poodle, and in this picture he's only two weeks old. So cute and chubby and little and the puppy breath was to die for x3

Anyway, enough mindless gushing. My real interest in this site lies in learning more about clicker training and positive reinforcement, which I have successfully used to housebreak our supposedly un-housebreak-able family dog and teach her a bunch of cute tricks. (She can crawl with her belly on the ground, close cabinets, drawers, etc, and I am currently teaching her to push stuff around with her paws in a specific manner using free shaping!)

I plan to raise my new pup (Who'll be coming home at the very end of January) using positive reinforcement and clicker training only, with the help f some very talented trainers who post their tutorials on youtube, articles and books I've read, and the personal experience I've gained from volunteering at my local animal shelter. It's going to be chaotic, since puppies are chaos incarnate, but I have plenty of time and patience!

Enough about me! Tell me a little about yourself? :3

Welcome and congrats!
A friend of mine has an apricot standard poodle who is just amazing! He totally changed my view of the breed.
You'll find that many of us here use clicker training and positive reinforcement as well! And good job on training your current family dog!

Thanks for the warm welcome! Yes, poodles are great dogs, I can't wait to start training mine. Only about five more weeks now! *wags tail*

Also, haha, training our current dog was a breeze once I stopped using traditional training methods and turned to the clicker. It didn't require much effort, and I think she really likes learning new stuff, sharp as a tack given opportunity. When we're free shaping, I can just see the gears turning. It's great. ^^ Thanks for the ecouragement.

It's great to meet you both
