I'm teaching Guus words, started with leash (spelling?), then added box and finally ball. He now points out the objects I ask for. It took him 3 training sessions of 5 minutes each. First I taught him "touch". Then I would ask him to touch any of the above mentioned object and as soon as he touched it I would say the word and click. First I held the objects in my hand, later I put them on the floor so he had to walk up to them. I was wondering how other people teach their dog words and if you might have some tips for me?
