Ask any dog owner and they'll tell you there are six general commands to teach your new puppy. Those six are: Heel, Come, Sit, Stand, Stay, and Down.
And with any dog, it doesn't matter which one you choose to start your training.
The important thing to remember about practice time is to not be in a hurry and practice every day. Remember, you don't set the pace for learning, you puppy does.
Your training sessions should last for only two to five minutes, that way you're matching the attention span length of your Labradoodle.
If you push them longer, they may stop paying attention to you. As you work each session, make sure to every one with a near-perfect performance.
This could be as simple as a one or two-second sit, or three little "heeling" steps next to you. When they do it successfully tell them how "perfect" it was. Really let them know how pleased you are they got it right.
Don't start a training right after your Labradoodle puppy has eaten because they'll be sleepy and the treats you use as rewards won't be as enticing. However, you can practice at any time throughout the day, even if it's a three-second "stay." They will love the attention.
One thing many owners don't realize is the motivation for them to do anything is rooted in their desire to please you.
Verbal praise has a range from ecstatic (for the first few correct responses from a very young pup) to a calm "good dog" as they grow up and become better a performing the lessons.
Basically, treats run a close second to their desire to please you. As for treats, dog biscuits generally aren't good training treats because they take your puppy too long to chew.
A better treat are tiny bits of plain cheese. Make sure not to overuse cheese when practicing. As each word command is learned, gradually cut back on the treats and substitute "good dog."
If the Labradoodle puppy is ten to twelve weeks old when you bring them home, they will be more rambunctious, and will sleep considerably less during the day.
