Start as soon as you bring puppy home as they can be stubborn but lots of treats and praise usually work. His recall isn't the best as he gets distracted with sniffing EVERYTHING!!

Tony said: "Yes"

Hard work but get there in the finish.

Tracey said: "Yes"

Repetition because ours is stubborn

Marie said: "Yes"

Formal classes stressing positive reinforcement. Short periods of training. 30 minutes at a time at most! If you can do 3 separate 15 minute sessions that would be ideal! Keep it fun! Find what he is most responsive to. Treats, hugs....

Paul said: "Yes"

Reward from young age and theough house training

Michelle said: "Yes"

I found AJ the bitch is so easier than Tyson but keep it up as they learn very quickly.

Alicia said: "No"

Consistency. Though he is a cupcake, he thinks he is a person and has every right to people food, furniture, etc. I taught him early to walk on a leash, we use an invisible fence (and he obeys it without the collar). We taught him 'behind' 'leave it' and 'down' right away. It takes persistence but they listen.

TERESA said: "Yes"


Kristy said: "No"

Please be persistent.

sarah said: "Yes"

patients he has to think about it

Michelle said: "No"

Chop's is 4 and is a rescue dog, it has been a bit harder tban with our dogue who we had since he was a puppy but he's getting there. I think you need the right mixture of love and firmness.
