    If you want to seriously get into training, I recommend Sue Ailsby’s Training Levels program- she has a free e-book on her site, and there is also a yahoo group devoted to this. This will help you break behavior down into small pieces to help your pups be successful.
    Below are some youtube videos to get you started on clicker training.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IC367wKGi…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS8hvY_Pe…http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=…
    I also encourage you to browse through the http://www.clickersolutions.com website and join the list group.

    First of all, congrats! You’ll enjoy them!
    My first suggestion would be not to go for a book but for real, live dog training with a professional trainer. Most Humane Societies have obedience classes. So do PetsMarts, PetCo, PetLand etc. Veterinarians are now starting to offer classes as well. I would also suggest that you contact some folks who have the same breed as your pups … even if they are mixed breed, maybe there is a dominant breed? They can give you all kinds of insights about the breed and its character traits, needs, training quirks etc. You may also get some good literature from your obedience classes! Beware, though, some folks can be a bit extremist in their beliefs about their breed! Let common sense rule!
    Clicker Training is a very interesting method of training as well and some people have had great success! Pet stores usually carry clickers, books and DVDs.
    Of course, there is always Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer as well!
    Good luck!

    There are some fantastic training resources online.
    I am currently training my Miniature poodle. He is actually 4 years old now I have had him since he was 16 weeks and he can do lots but not enough. So last week I bought a book on line and some videos and he is getting some extra lessons from me.
    I like the way you say you are going to train the hell out of them. They’ll love it, especially if they will get lots of treats and attention while being trained
    Check out my source below. I got some stuff through one of this sites links from a review they did of a product. It has some excellent videos.
    If you have never had a dog before it will take you through the basics all the way through to advanced level and teaching your dog cool stuff. I only Just got the book and video the other day and have only had a chance to watch one video.
    The video has some great stuff but it was the one mainly about house training your dog which I already did years ago.
    I will be watching one of the advanced videos tomorrow since like you I want to teach my dog some advanced stuff – and train the hell out of him… I have neglected his training for to long.
    Anyway, check out the source below
