    Dog Training Forum
    Hi Everyone, My fiance & I have a puppy and he stays at her house half of the time. While we work my fiance's mom must try teaching the pup a few things, and he now thinks he is supposed to give paw everytime he sits. So whenever i command him to sit, he does, but he lifts his paw up LOL...
  3. Proud Mother Moments

    General Dog Forum
    My parents have been looking after Sansa since Thursday afternoon just so I could have two days to go out and party and "be a teenager for once" (as they always say) for my birthday. Sansa is scared of horses (reasonably so, the ones near our house are jerks and will murder her, so her fear is...

    Chico and I do obedience training twice a day for 10-20 minutes. I use his kibble and this is how he is fed his lunch and dinner. Before April 25th we had master Sit and Down (with both hand and verbal cues) and have been working on a more solid 'leave it' and a further distance recall. I...

    Dog Training Forum
    Chico: Chihuahua, 11 weeks, male. I've been practicing "sit" with Chico for about a week now (2-3 times a day for 5-10 minutes). We always do it after a play session and before a meal.

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi everyone! I have a 9 month old labrador/malamute mix who is generally very well-behaved. He rarely jumps on me or my boyfriend, but he gets very excited around certain types of strangers and often jumps up on them. The "certain types of strangers" I am speaking of are the people who...
  9. Individual training and snuggle time

    General Dog Forum
    I have to say, I forgot how tiring training can be sometimes lol Since I have two puppies it's twice the work but at the same time twice as rewarding :D And I'm also going over some new and old commands with Kodi just to keep him from getting rusty. I'll admit that training the dogs...

  15. Sits for treats, but won't get up

    Dog Training Forum
    I'm trying to teach my 7 1/2 week old Dachshund to sit on command, but he has outsmarted me and discovered a way to circumvent the system. As soon as I pull out the treats, he plants his behind on the floor, never giving me the opportunity to tell him to sit. He thinks he's going to get a treat...
