my 3 1/2 yr old boxer hase gone all the way through advanced training. And she responds to the commands well...all except for "sit". i know she knows this command, i make her do it every day, but unless im holding a tasty treat, she wont budge. i really dont like the idea of having to haul around treats all the time, i think my dog should respect me enough to sit because she wants to please! well, that's the experience iv had with all my other dogs anyway. im not about to start giving her treats just to make her sit, she knows the command, it's obvious, but she doesnt want to! after i correct her, she will sit, because she gets scared, but i dont want to be correcting my dog all the time, when i tell her to sit, its not because i feel like it, its because....i need her to sit! iv read a fair amount about boxers ( i must admit, this is my first) and i keep finding the information that boxers are stuborn dogs, who usually dont care whether or not they make you pleased...this might not be true about all boxers, but it deffinatly is about mine!
is there anyway i can get her to respond faster....she's not stupid, just stuborn!
