David Winners Until you have eager engagement, there is no point trying to teach behaviors. Work on charging the mark. Make sure she's hungry when training. Work on bring the most fun thing on the planet.

When she is meaningfully engaged, then you can start shaping behaviors.

richierichavena yep, but she has a veeeery short attention span. So no, she's not 'eagerly engaged' But I will certainly will keep at it (:

David Winners Have you spent a few sessions just charging the mark? Is the dog eagerly engaged with you? If not, you are rushing things.

Every dog is different. I think she needs more time to settle in

Mac's Mom I love dobies too. Yes they are intelligent dogs but 2 days is not enough time to determine anything. Your dobie is just settling in. After that period I suggest treat training.

Liz&Anna That's so weird I LOVE dobies, they are super smart!!! Though when I first started training with my girl she had NO idea what we were doing or what was going on, it took her a few weeks and now I feel like she is a genius. Positive is def. the best way to work a pup, start with no distraction at all, on leash away from your other dog. Make sure she is hungry and you have something high value (like hotdogs)

New puppy (:

On friday I introduced a new member to the family, Penny. She's a 4 month old Doberman Pischer. She Has NO training what so ever. I also have a GSD named sam and she's 6 months old. i clicker trained her and she took well to this method, however, little Ms.Penny is a different story... She won't listen at all! I've been trying the Clicker method for the past two days, and nothing. She's having the hardest time learning the most simple commands, sit, down, etc. So my question is, do you guys know of any other training methods that will work for little Ms.Penny? Anything would help! Thanks
