A young dog just can not be reliably controllable under all circumstances. It is necessary to know and consider this.

One of the main conditions for making persistent skills is training.
Training should be conducted aiming to:

Make the dog work in conditions of strong distracting stimuli.

Bring developed reflexes to persistent skills.

Develop dynamic stereotypes as the reaction onto a command and environment.

The last point should be explained in greater detail. Imagine that during the walk you usually go to the store (for example, to buy bread). It is clear that in order to avoid conflicts your dog should be left at the door. What are you doing? You give the command “sit”, after setting a little dog aside to the side (so as not to interfere with passers-by, and that they did not interfere with the dog). For reliability, you may throw the loop of short leash on the fence or on some pin sticking out of the ground etc. Even if the dog falls through, it will be kept with the leash. It would be preferably for you to monitor the dog?s behavior through the shop?s window in order to have possibility to correct it in time. You look at the animal carefully, leaving for the store, and the puppy understands that you are serious here.

Firstly, the whole this process is quite complicated. But how will this event look like in 2-3 months? You will approach to the store, to the same place; will give the command “sit” then, throw the leash and boldly go into the room, not looking back. The dog will be angry and sit down and wait for you. Two months later, everything will look different. You will approach to the same place (the dog will be without a leash), you will not give any instruction and will not stop. A dog will sit without giving of any command, and, lazily glancing from side to side, will wait for you.

What happened? A dynamic stereotype has developed as a reaction on the command and the situation first, and just on the situation then. Repeating this technique every day, you have achieved reliable action of the animal under a particular circumstance. Such repetition is a real training (though, it seems that you just go to buy bread).

To repeat the conditions of these course exercises is not enough. You must go forward. Gradually complicate the work of the animal, increase the demands. If you have developed an action in the near park, go to the city streets. If you have coached a command of approach with the dog when it was calm and looked at you, move on to simulate beckoning of the animal in terms of distracting stimuli.

Discipline of your dog primarily depends on your own discipline. It is easy to get the animal to sit down before going over the carriageway. But it is hard to do this every time, independently on the fact that you hurry or not.

However, set the key rules of behavior in any given situation and always ask for their implementation. Having loosened the requirements once (allowing the dog go on the sofa, ignoring the failure of the team) you will quell the weeks of work.
