  1. Teaching hyper puppy to sit

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello! We just got a new foxhound puppy who is very hyper and highly motivated by food. We are trying to teach her "sit" but when we have a treat in our hand she freaks out.

    Hi Everyone, My fiance & I have a puppy and he stays at her house half of the time. While we work my fiance's mom must try teaching the pup a few things, and he now thinks he is supposed to give paw everytime he sits. So whenever i command him to sit, he does, but he lifts his paw up LOL...
  3. Dog follows sit command inside but not outside, why?

  6. How can I train my pup to sit still...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    ...when I am trying to prepare him for a walk? He's pretty much figured out the W-word (not that I tip toe around it) but he starts bouncing with excitement. I don't mind it at this point necessarily. I go grab the leash and walk toward the front door. He is buzzing around and whatnot, quite...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a two year old great dane and when he would make rauling sounds I would put the command, "Ilove You" to it and it is working ok i guess but how do you get him to tell the difference between a bark and a raul? Also He lays down when I tell him to sit. Is that common with great danes? I...
