I need some training help!

My outdoor dog, Caeser has indoor time as much as possible. When ever he comes in, he behaves and cuddles on the couch. After about 10 minutes, he nips, runs around, and just creates chao.

So, I want to know how to get him to behave, and how to keep him busy.

Training for the animal is like "work" for us.

Generally, unless we are getting paid ...adequately...we aren't going to do it!

Get something he'll work for, some kind of treat he ONLY gets when working for you (training sessions).

Once he see's you've got something worth his time, you get a lot better response out of him.

Training can be a complicated process, but the elements are simple:

"You do this behavior for me, ...and I'll reward you with this treat."

For the actual techniques that work best for your dog, a class under an experienced trainer is best, but barring that, I'd suggest you get a good book and try it yourself.

Thanks!

He's already trained, he just has trouble inside. He graduated basic training classes.
