Jag That's really cool! I wouldn't have thought of that. I didn't have to wait long..like maybe 3 seconds. He KNEW what I wanted, but I'd created a monster because I was allowing him to be naughty. It was just so cute, I didn't realize that I was shooting myself in the foot. My wife laughs when he acts up...which does NOT help, but I was doing something just as bad.

I know this doesn't sound like it works, but it really does. Hondo kept jumping on our sliding glass door when he wanted to be let in. Because he was outside and I was inside, I couldn't enforce any type of command. Opening the door (to correct) only reinforced him jumping on the door.

He knows the hand signal for sit. Following the advice of this forum, I'd go to the door and give him the signal for sit...then wait. I didn't correct him for jumping, I really couldn't. The moment he sat, I opened the door. The connection came quickly after that. I did have to wait...and wait..and wait till he figured it out the first time. Now, he'll go to the door and sit..most of the time. Sometimes he'll get overly excited and jump, but it is rare.

Lol, I just watched this video. I love how you tell Grim that you "don't care". I say the same to Charlie all the time, lol. Good assertive commands by the way.

JakodaCD OA glad it worked You will end up being able to phase that out I'm sure.

What I end up doing is starting to throw my hand signal IN with the fist down as well, then phase out the fist down..

And yeppie I think pugs are cute little dogs who have their own agendas

I cave up on having him play fetch after, ohhh, 5 years of trying.
He was black and tan, and we jokingly called him our Chinese Shepherd, because we really wanted a GSD but didn't have the time or space for one.

Heyyy I just realized, maybe it's their smooshed faces that restrict brain development.

Can I also give a suggestion???

Put your 'treat' in a closed fist, bend down yourself, and tell him to DOWN , ONCE, only once, do NOT repeat it,,at the same time enclosed fist in front of his nose straight down on the floor keep your fist on the floor, and wait him out, soon as he 'downs', open up the fist, JACKPOT..He'll get it))
Hey!!! I did this, and had a down RIGHT AWAY!!!

What a PITA dog!! LOL!

Also, I know I treated while he was coming back up, but I marked it when he was in the down. I don't know if that matters... I was wrong. User error, LOL! I also didn't notice I was using my hands. Bad me, because I want to train him with hand signals also... and those 'motions' are NOT the hand signals that I use to train with. I had my previous 2 trained with voice and hand signals...something I want to do with Grim also. Thanks for catching my mistakes in this vid and for the suggestions!!
