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!

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.

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.

you can train indoors. you can certainly be around dogs and not let them
lick your face.

|Lobobear44||I am using the clicker as rewards: the click, treats, toys (balls seems to work best), and a lot of praise. Only problem my dad has short temper issues hits yells and drags Riley and calls him useless. No wonder my dog had a hard time listening to us.|
