How to start :)! Shih tzu puppy

Hey guys,

So we finally got Luna home, our 7 week and four day old Shih tzu to be exact

She can't go outside yet but we have been puppy pad training and it's actually going rather well, we get some accidents but they tend to be close to the pad

Just wondering, is there anything we can do to prepare her for training? Her attention span is really short so we are struggling with any real training atm.

Thanks, hope you guys are well,

Josh

All puppies attention span is short look up kikopup on YouTube, she's the best and had such good videos.

Keep training sessions short (like 30 seconds to 2 minutes) for now. If she does something right, reward her immensely. Then she will realize "hey these training sessions are fun!" Try to mix it up with food and toys for rewards. DDR she like to play tug? I like to use tug as a reward. Teaching them to "out" the toy is a good one for if you will be using a reward. Then they learn that the only way top keep playing is to let go of the toy.
