blanca, our white shepherd, is now 21 weeks old, and we've started training her some basic with a clicker.
we're slow in training, so she can do only "sit", "down" and "paw" now (she doesn't know "stay" or "come", but she runs to us immediately when we say "cookie", that's sth we didn't purposely teach her
). i've also followed one of the posts to teach her "focus", so she (sometimes) knows to look at me instead of the treats.
here's the problem: she probably thinks if she wants the treats, she has to "sit" or "down" or "focus", she doesn't respond to any food lure at all, ie she won't follow me me if i hold a treat in my hand, she'd rather just sit and wait. i haven't succeeded in teaching her a release cue, so she'd just jump up on me when she gets impatient with sitting for too long. it makes it difficult to train her sth else, coz most training videos i watch use food lure to get the pup into the desired position, but mine just doesn't respond at all.
am i doing sth wrong? any idea how i can get passed this?
