My fiancée and I are new dog owners. Our new sweetheart, Lulu, is 8 months old. We got her from a shelter that didn't know much about her background other than she might've been a stray. All things considered, she is very sweet and well behaved, but with her being relatively young, we need to do quite a bit of training with her still.
I have some experience training a pup, my family had a dog when I was in high school. We used a clicker and went to classes which seemed like it worked for a while. But that dog had a nose of its own and had a hard time listening throughout its life, so I'm not sure if that was a successful experience or not.
What are your tips, methodologies, book recommendations for successful dog training?
