I don't know what my doxie's deal is. It's almost harder in a way to teach him with treats because he gets so focused on the treat that it's almost like he doesn't hear me at all. He just stares at the treat, a big stupid grin on his cute little face, wagging his tail. We can't even lure him into a sit. Just keep staring and smiling. We had to start kicking my mutt out of the room because SHE was the impatient one. At first she helped guide my Elkhound and he would learn by mirroring her, but now she'll immediately do whatever I'm directing them to do, and if they don't do it, she just barks and barks like "Give me the treat, I can clearly do it!!"
