Sometimes what a person perceives as stubborn is actually is intelligent decision. Sir. Duke and Bojangles are similar to most typical Bullies with lots of personally and awareness of choices through positive, patient and loving training.
As Sir. Duke and I play, as well as go over the basic commands, such as sit, stay, and lay down, I start to realize Sir. Duke only obeys when he wishes.
Sir. Duke clearly knows his basic commands. Yet, just like people, he too has days in which Sir Duke does not want to prove his understanding and what he knows. Sir. Duke starts to resent the test. So, to keep things fresh and not a battle of the wills. I plan another task to learn, such as follow beside me or come follow the leader.
Watch Sir. Duke, Bojangles and I have some fun in the warm summer sun here in Texas. Observe how we play, learn, and train. Also, note training and learning is a two way street.
Did you notice the moment when Sir. Duke was teaching me?
These are the winter days that I love living in the south. Only in the south can Sir. Duke take a dip in the pool and enjoy the warm winter sun. Watch Sir. Duke swim and practice follow me, sit, and give me your paw.
Observe how quietly Bojangles listens, even when the command is not his. Bojangles is hoping for an extra treat. Bojangles is a great example how we can teach one dog while they others observe and learn as well.
One of the key secrets to training multiple dogs is to teach the older dog first and allow the younger ones to follow by example. After all in a natural pack (family), the younger puppies or dogs do learn from the elders.
Caring is sharing. please share Bully Love and Devotion to spread animal awareness and education, while helping to find homes for dogs in need.
Tell me what is on your mind? Did you know the best teacher or training is one that learns the lessons first? How do you train your furry loved one? Do you learn and keep a clear focus on what you want to teach your furry loved one?
So, is Sir. Duke stubborn or Smart?
