DO keep your training sessions quick; 10-15 minutes at the most. Your dog can get bored and/or drained by hearing the exact same command over and over again and repeating the identical action. The key is little and often – daily if possible.
DO, where at all possible, make sure that your training sessions are done without outside distractions. Switch the TV and radio off and, once you are starting to teach a trick, just have you and your dog in the room.
DO use the same command during your puppy’s training; don’t chop and change. A small difference e.g.’turn’ and’turn around’ can be quite confusing for your furry friend, so be consistent.

DO give your dog plenty of treats and praise when he gets it .However don’t overdo the treats once your dog has learnt the suggestion. Gently point out the treats in order that you are merely using the commands, hand gestures (if appropriate) and praise.
DON’T attempt to teach your puppy a trick which may interfere with a health issue he has. For instance, if your puppy has back issues, then a trick such as rolling over might be overly hard. In case you have any questions at all don’t do it or consult your veterinarian first.
DON’T force your dog to perform tricks he really does not want to do; respect his or her limitations. And do not punish your puppy for not performing a trick properly; just keep focusing on it. Always remember that hints are for the enjoyment of both of you and it’s not a race to finish each suggestion.
DON’T talk too much during the training sessions, otherwise your voice will start to have no effect and it all becomes a confusing babble of noise to your puppy.
DON’T believe your dog is too old for tricks. If he’s healthy and doesn’t have any mobility problems, he will be OK. It is often easier to teach an older dog as a new puppy has a great deal of other training to take on board such as toilet training and basic obedience training. Wait until he has mastered that until you attempt to educate him any tricks.
