Knowledge/ability at 11 weeks

So we can't find a puppy class that starts around here until after the holidays so we are trying the best we can with our 11 week old.

She knows "come" and "sit" but that's all so far.

What else can/should we be teaching??

By 11 weeks or so the most helpful things we were pretty easily able to teach Zeke were:
  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Down (lie down on the floor)
  • Combo of the above (like sit-stay)
  • Come (recall)
  • Leave it (when he has something in his mouth we want him to drop)
  • Off (like not jumping on people when he greets them, or off the counter when he tries to paw to stand up and see food, etc.)
  • Leash training like heel, to stop when I stop, etc.

The puppy class for us was a lot more about socialization which is really key at the age of your puppy, so maybe find ways to take your puppy around other dogs like at a local park, or friends with dogs perhaps? We also just walked around our outdoor shopping areas and farmers markets a lot to get him socialized to all kinds of people, sounds, sights, experiences.

We also walked near the bus stops for the neighborhood kids in the morning and he and the kids loved their daily play time and it helped him get used to lots of excitement and children and how to appropriately play with them and others.

Your first puppy class teaches:

1) Their name (insert name) 'look' with you holding a treat near your eyes
2) down, sit, stay (could be standing stay or sit stay) and hence also a release word (so they come to you after the stay is over).
3) leave it
4) touch (sometimes, to they touch your hand with their nose. this is the basis for a lot of other tricks to come).

BTW, we need pictures. lots of pictures, please .
