With young dogs or older dogs new to it, the key is to keep it short. Watch your dog and try to quit before they become bored. You want it to be fun at this point.

Also how do you teach the sit whistle stop or how ever you call it and the come whistle? I would love to teach him that.
Thank you,
I just start adding it to the command. We work on sit. When he knows that, I start blowing the whistle when saying sit. Keep at it and eventually you can blow the whistle by itself and he will know it means sit.

Same with the come in whistle. Sit him away from you, call him and blow the whistle.
