We just got a lab/border collie mix. 4mo old.
Id like to train him in a few areas. He is doing great with Potty Training.
But we need to leash train him (he just lays down refusing to budge) and crate train him. Id also like to teach him commands: come, sit, down & stay for his/our safety & then maybe some fun tricks down the road.
But I dont know which to do first, and how much is too much.
Is him being potty trained/crate trained/leash trained too much to soon?
I figured commands will be taught after those 1 at a time.
any advice? Ive always had small dogs & never tried to train them in anything. But lab/collies seem to really need/love this kind of guidance. And if im not "leader of the pack" he will learn to lead us.. lol
