  1. Need help developing focus and motivation for difficult McNab

    Dog Training Forum
    TLDR: treats don't work, strong environmental focus, play is inconsistent motivator, starting over training from scratch. I've had boots for about 9 months now. I got her as a puppy who had been more or less locked in a horse trailer for 6 months. She's a very sweet and somewhat worried McNab...
  2. How do I get her attention?

    Dog Training Forum
    Hello! So my JaSlyn is finally done with her shots, yay! I'm ready to start socializing her and such. I want to get some basic obedience in as well. I've owned a lot of larger dogs (rotties, chow chows, etc) and though they had "puppy spunk" you put any type of food in front of them and I had...

  6. Attention Command

    Dog Training Forum
    We've been busy training our 4 month old shepherd mix and she's been doing great (aside from frequent mouthing 'tantrums'). However when we take her to her puppy obedience classes she is the worst dog there - mainly because it is IMPOSSIBLE to get her to pay any attention to us with all of the...
  7. General puppy questions

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    Hi :) We have a 3 1/2 month old pup. BTW, by my avatar which is a pic of "Buddy", what breed do you think he might be? Maybe a spaniel? 1. He is itching all the time. We took him to a groomer and she said he does not have fleas. The vet told us to treat him for fleas anyway, which we have...
  8. What to do -- dog is growling for food and attention.

    Dog Training Forum
    We just adopted a 2-year-old Beagle/Corgi cross last week. Most of the time he's very sweet but lately his regular dog whining have occasionally become growls. I don't believe the growls are meant in an aggressive way, he only seems to growl when: a) He wants attention. For example, I was...
