  1. Tricks/Commands that your dog(s) know :)

    General Dog Forum
    I just wanted to create a fun thread to know what sort of commands your pups know! I figured this could also give new ideas of what else I can teach my dog :) Mine knows the basic commands: sit, stay, come, ok, lay down, shake, drop it/leave it Fun/more advanced ones: - Roll over - Where is...
  2. Training without treats. Help.

    Dog Training Forum
    My puppy doesn't have an interest in treats. I have tried bacon, beef, and chicken. He just sniffs the treat and then looks at me. I find this odd because he is half German Shepherd, which are known to be food hounds. So without the use of treats I am in need of guidance on how to train him...
  3. Linking "Nothing in Life is Free" approach to Marker Training

    Dog Training Forum
    I have decided to start implementing the "Nothing in Life is Free" or make the dog work to earn it approach in my training. For example, I will have my dog do a down or some other obedience behavior before I feed him breakfast or dinner and I will do the same thing before we leave the house...
  4. Mini Aussie's attitude and inability to listen/follow commands

    Dog Training Forum
    We have a 14 week old mini aussie pup. I have done tons of reading and researching into training these types of dogs, and nothing I've done has worked! He will not sit/lay/stop/down unless he WANTS to. The only thing he knows is his name (hah). He pulls on his leash, won't come when we call him...

First off, I know a LOT of people said not to get a mal mix and instead to get a poodle...take note I DID take your advice into consideration but everyone has different tastes and mine just...
  6. Im learning so much about training a dog!

    Dog Training Forum
    So I have been doing a ton of researching figuring out what kind of training is necessary for a puppy. Im finding out which command should be taught first, like you are supposed to teach your puppy the sit command before you train your puppy to stay. They say to do it this way because when you...
  7. Dog just guessing?

    Attention All New Members
    We have a one and a half year old chocolate lab. She seems to pick up on new commands very quickly. But when it comes to giving her a command outside of training sessions she seems to be guessing. I might say "beg" and she will sit, then lay down, then try to shake my hand, then finally beg. It...
  8. Dog doesn't come back!

    Dog Training Forum
    My dog is a little over a year old. He is a white boxer/pit bull. He loves to play, however if I let him outside without a leash he runs away and thinks it's a game when I try to catch him. He's very quick so no matter how fast I go he is always faster! I cannot figure out how to keep him in the...
  9. 1/2 Alpha Dog - adopted from shelter?

    Dog Training Forum
    So, I have a question about behavior of our female, 2 y.o. American Bulldog "Joy". We adopted her over 4 weeks ago, she was found abandoned near shelter with many little wounds, she was also REALLY scared of men even when they were 5 meters away from her (still scared of unknown, older men). She...
  10. Dog doesn't come when called

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    We have a coton de tulear a little over a year old and she is our family's first dog. (She's a small dog.) She has trouble responding to most commands when she's preoccupied and rarely responds to come unless we have a treat and she isn't doing anything else. She has never come back to us on...

  12. Pup can "wait", but won't "stay"...

    Dog Training Forum
    I've been working on clicker training my three month Aussie at home (she starts working with our trainer after her original puppy consultation in a few weeks) and she's catching on to everything super quick. At this point, she can sit, shake, lay down, put her head down, come and wait for a...
  13. Best time to start teaching sit, shake a paw, etc.

    Dog Training Forum
    I have two 13 and 1/2 week old Papillon puppies and they are already showing signs of being so smart. This is the first time I have owned a Papillon, as I am used to Golden Retrievers. I am wondering at what age is it appropriate to start teaching them tricks like sit, shake a paw, etc. I'm not...
  14. Difficulty Training Advanced Commands

    Dog Training Forum
    My wife and I have a 7-month old shiba inu who's pretty sharp - he learned all the basic commands (sit, down, stand, stay, come) in a short period of time and without any problems. Unfortunately, as he's gotten a little older he's decided that he DOES NOT want anyone touching him during...
