Hi Linda.....

GSD's are one of the most ardent learners out there. I have one and I am constantly amazed at the way he picks things up after one session. I don't know what other breed your pup is, but the GSD drive will more than likely overtake that!

Here's a training site. Just remember that the dog will sense ANY frustration you have. The second you feel yourself losing your cool, end the session. And ALWAYS end on a happy note. Toss a ball, love him/her up.... The dog needs to feel that the serious training will always end with fun. He'll/she'll start looking forward to it!
