Koda just will NOT pay attention
I'm trying to train my 7 month old puppy new tricks. He knows Sit and Speak. I use the Natural Balance rolls, all flavors are mingled into a pouch so he gets a flavor at random to keep it interesting.
No matter how hard I try, how much patience and time I put into trying to train him the Down command, he just walks away. Well, any command as a matter of fact!
He's gotten down that if he just automatically sits then speaks without me or my boyfriend telling him to do so, he thinks he'll be rewarded. Yeah, we're guilty of giving him treats for it because we thought it was excellent behavior until we realized it really isn't unless given the command.
It actually get's annoying and I've been trying to switch it up on him. I've been trying to get him to Speak standing up on all fours, but he insists to sit then speak. not sure if it's preference, but it kind of bothers me.
Does anyone have any input on how to get him to be more interested, please post here! I'm open to all suggestions!
