This is day 2 of living with an 8 week old English Pointer puppy. We got her through a breeder who had done a lot of work with her. She already knows how to sit and make eye contact. The problem is that in the training books and videos I'm reading, they say to start in a less distracting area for teaching something new. My puppy has too much concentration that she is either zeroed in on me (and the treats) and won't go to slightly distracted or she is zeroed in on anything she can chew or sniff. There is no in between. I'm trying to teach her to check in with me often but she either stares at me or completely ignores me.
