I've had Perlita for almost 7 months now and she still never obeys me. The thing is, I think she's too smart (or I'm too dumb to train a dog). She knows her name, knows when I call her, and won't come because she doesn't want to. I bring treats to the park every day to give to her when she comes. And now the thing is, if I don't have treats and I call her, she runs up, stops 5 feet away, looks for a treat, then runs away! Even if I act like I have a treat she can tell that I don't!

She's great on a leash and I always make her sit to put it on and take it off. It's just figuring out how to get her to come when I call! My "backyard" is about the size of a normal person's bathroom, so I can't do a lot of training there. I'm going to buy one of those long leashes that go out further when they pull to make her think she's free, then pull her in when I call her.

I don't know, maybe I should just invest in some expensive dog classes. Any other ideas?
