Getting Thunder more "into" me
When I go to the Sheperd club on Sundays and I am training with the other owners, Thunder seems to be looking at everyone but me, I am just not interesting enough, compared to the other dogs who mostly are looking at their owners. Thunder is 11 months old, but I am wondering what I am doing wrong. I play with him, teach him tricks, feed him, exercise him, train him, but even when I am calling him and by some miracle he is coming to me, he is still looking in the other direction. We sometimes use treats with him which helps a little but barely at all, maybe it might improve things for 1-2 minutes over an hour. As soon as he has the treats he is looking elsewhere again.
