Good point. I see so many people who use "down" as both "get down" and "lie down." It's no wonder their dogs don't do what they say! We use "off" with Bella's jumping.Kate said:make sure you arent using a word that is like anyother words. Cause I know I use down for Kate when telling her to stop jumping and what not so I use the word lie to lie down
I did skip lunch when I went to class, but she obviously wasn't really hungry cause I couldn't keep her attention with the treats.Lisa said:Bremner, when you do training sessions with your dog are you making sure the dog is HUNGRY?? Always be sure your dog has fasted for some time and instead of using treats, use kibble (if thats what you feed) and incorporate training sessions into feeding time that way you can kill two birds with one stone. If your dog isn't hungry enough its going to be less likely to want to work for you.
