  1. Hi Zak, you do videos all the time on hyper dogs, or better described with boundless energy. Could you possibly work with some more laid back dogs, perhaps how to encourage activities such as fetch or tug-of-war, to keep the more mellow dogs active and engaged. Please and thank you!

    1. +TheDogGuy Yes of course, if you consider ‘alert’ and ‘higher energy’ similar enough to exchange, you could say that about when we go to the park. But instead of her focus on me she is watching for squirrels. Once I have her attention again she is mellow and walks just fine on or off leash, but again shows little interest in tug or fetch.

      +Zak George’s Dog Training rEvolution What would you prescribe for lower energy dogs? Its not like I can not get her to do it at all, but its more of a half hearted thing. Is there anything I can do to get her more excited, or are there other games you would suggest I try?

    2. +K Towle Oh perfect. So usually picking up YOUR energy will encourage an “on the fence” dog to get more excited about the game. Make it fun. Getting the spark is the hardest part sometimes, but you’ve got that, so keep the fire going by remaining enthused and excited when she plays. Let me know how it goes here. Thanks!


    3. +Zak George’s Dog Training rEvolution You make it sound so easy! I have been doing my best to be goofy enthusiastic etc while playing with her to keep her engaged, but it is not enough for her when we are outside even in the backyard. She will wander off to sniff the grass over playing with me. Usually it goes something like this. We head for the door, she is super excited as she loves being outside, to the yard, first few throws or tugs she is revved up. With no apparent pattern, that I can see, she will give up playing with me regardless of my encouragement and enthusiasm. Sometimes this will be after two throws, five throws or even twenty, just depending all on what she feels. I have tried to stop before I get her to worn out on the game, but it is very difficult to judge if she is not consistent. Any words of advice or encouragement would be wonderful!

    4. +K Towle look UP “teaching force fetch” i wouldn’t recommend it, but that’s what breeders do with “retrievers”. Its cruel but it works i guess….

    5. +Zak George’s Dog Training rEvolution Iv’e asked for a video on this as well. Im an expert now on hyper dogs but id love some videos on how to encourage lazy dogs like my own. 

    1. lol your puppy is 15 weeks old. Welcome to having a puppy. Puppies bite, puppies chew, puppies pee and poo every where and do not sleep through the night. Puppies are a huge commitment and often NOT good for first time dog owners (Presuming you are if you have this problem).

      A large percent of dogs that end up in kill shelters are dogs surrendered by their owner bc their puppy that is now a year or two is “bad” or doesn’t “listen” and they don’t want it anymore… Bc its the dogs fault… right?

  2. “Thumb’s up and subscribed because I liked your video even though I have no intention of training my dog to “Let it go”. 🙂

  3. hi Zac, been loving your work since discovering you a couple weeks back.

    we have one crazy rescue gsd (possible belgian meliniar) with we think OCD. been trying to wear him out and train him to see if it helps, at least 2 hours a day at the moment.

    he loves fetch but it requires two toys so I was trying your drop techniques however he can happily sit with a toy in his mouth for hours, so I’m not sure how I can get him to drop do you have any other ideas than your wait him out method?

    have lots of other stories I’d love to chat to you about let me know if you’re interested.

  4. Hi Zack! TWO dog trainers I met today both mentioned you and I’m so glad they did. My two-year-old (neutered) pit mix steals other dogs’ balls at the dog park, and it’s nearly impossible to get them out of his mouth. How do I make the ball that’s clenched between his stubborn (super strong!) jaws “boring” so that he will let go? The ball owners stand there staring at us (in a hurry to leave), and I am sweating it out, trying to get the ball away from him. It’s very stressful for us both. The only thing that works is keeping a little bit of his wet food in a tupperware in my bag and waving it (open) in front of his nose. The smell makes him release it. But I don’t let him have the food because I don’t want to reward this behavior. Or should I? Also, I would like him to listen without having to carry a tupperware of raw meat with me to the park. Any advice?

    1. Thank you for the quick reply!!! I will check out the tug video, keep the videos coming, Zack. So happy to have found you!

    2. You could have rewarded him, I think. If my dog does that, I make him sit (after he drops it) and then reward. So it’s a reward for the sit. I know this is one year ago, so did you figure it out?

  5. It’s an another great site for how to train your dog.I tried it and it worked perfectly. It helps me connect with my dog even more and she understands me. you can also try it. just search google; “galid dog training”

  6. omg you do recommend them enough, every video. id like to discourage you from advertising for 30 seconds to one minute talking about petflow in every single video SMH
