Linda1270 Is Riley a Labradoodle? Keep at it and you will only get better, however, I think 4 hours is a little too much, you do not want your dog to get bored with training. 15-20 minutes at a time is sufficient....just try to work with him these intervals a few times a day.

Sad that your dad hits your dog, hope it's not too hard!

stmcfred You trained him for 4 hours? That's a long time. It's better if you do short sessions multiple times a day.

Blanketback I hope your week's going well Lobobear.

I just want to mention something, something you might not even have any reason to consider: some dogs do like to greet people with a face lick. However, this is fine for you, and the dog isn't going to complain, but some owners *hate *hate* hate* it when their dogs are encouraged to do this. I'm one of them. It's gotten to the point with me that now I'm in the process of teaching my dog to wear a muzzle so that I can physically prevent him from doing it, since so many people ignored my requests to not allow him access to their faces. Just something to think about. I know you love dogs and this seems like a friendly thing to do.

gaia_bear Tie a knot in an old unpaired sock, works great as a reward at my house

We've been living in what they're refering to as a "polar vortex", my training all winter has been inside - just keep it short and fun.

Don't want to take a chance for improper healing. Perhaps I can spend time with dogs that are not kissers inside or be extra careful. Luckily, my Labradoodle is not a big kisser. Could train him while this is going on too. Train him once a week. Need to do it more frequently. I signed up for introduction scenting work early March! Will get so many more dogs to walk. Nah don't want to jynx being careless. The other thing is being outside when sun goes down like evening.

I'm really sorry to hear that. It has to be hard on you and the dog to experience that. I hope your training goes well and your dad doesn't have any reason to hit Riley.

Lobo, if you're so interested in training dogs, why are you not working with your own dog every day? When I was a kid, I was obsessed with training, grooming and playing with the family dog. I wanted a GSD but she was a little Terrier mix of some kind, so I simply pretended she was a GSD. I taught her many tricks and had a lot of fun doing it.
Yeah need to get into a habital training routine everyday. Probably set timers for reminders might be a good idea.
