My Mission is to Help You And Your Puppy
Welcome to KaufmannsPuppyTraining.com. I’m so glad to see you here and I’m looking forward to being your wing(wo)man in your daily life with your puppy and your dog.
Even if this is not your first puppy, you might have forgotten what it is like to have such a fantastic creature; How to potty train your puppy, how to stop her from jumping up, barking, biting, how to make her come when called etc
I’m here to walk you through these very common challenges using only positive choice based training methods. This means you will teach your puppy to make the choices you want her to by rewarding what she does right and ignoring what she does wrong. Not scolding and never punishing, just ignoring unwanted behavior and rewarding wanted behavior. Simple, but efficient.
This way you’ll get a puppy that seeks out you! She’ll seek your attention and praise instead of a puppy that will fear and avoid you.

Brief Definitions of The Key Terms I Use on My Site
You’ll notice that I refer to puppy as “her”. I know you might have a puppy that is a “him” and I’m not into any gender discrimination. But to me a puppy is so much more than a “it”, so I’ve just decided to use “her” instead.
Also I’m nearly always referring to a puppy. However, most of the exercises will work on a dog as well, although you need to be a bit more patient teaching a grown dog.
It is also important to clarify that to me “praise” or “reward” means that you, in the precise moment your puppy does the right thing, mark this behavior with a certain word or a click from a clicker. This is the most important part of the praise – that the puppy knows exactly what she did right, because you stress this at the precise moment it happens, using your marking-word or a clicker. Then you can support this with either more words or treats or toys or what will make the puppy happy and give value to the click or word.
