      We were never able to put our dog in formal dog training classes.  I have been thinking about ordering Don Sullivan’s Dog training DVD set or Chet Womach’s audio dog training set.  Has any heard anything about these two dog training techniques?

        • No I haven’t.  I am lucky that my husband formerly worked for the Army in dog handling.  He has his ways to train dog.  Unfortunately, it does not work too well around here for I spoil them to compensate.  So they always run to their mommies for rescue.

        • Here are links to the websites.  Don Sullivan has an infomercial which is how I became interested in finding out what was out there for home training.

        • He is 2.  He still chews and pees.  He does not respond to simple commands such as come.

        • Did you take away stuff he was not allowed to chew and replaced quickly with a chew toy etc?  It seems to be he is bored and wants to draw your attention.  I am no expert and would like to know more so I can share with you my experience.  

          Do you live in an apartment?  Does he have a yard to go to?
          Is he crated?  What kind of dog is he?  Since when you have him?  Is he the only dog?  Who else gives him command? Did he pees when nervous or any particular reason?  

          I am heading to bed and hope you don’t mind too many questions.  This will give us some more ideas.  

          I will check this out tomorrow.

        • Did you take away stuff he was not allowed to chew and replaced quickly with a chew toy etc? Yes, I give him a chew toy or one of his blankets. It seems to be he is bored and wants to draw your attention.  I am no expert and would like to know more so I can share with you my experience.    

          Do you live in an apartment? we live in a house  Does he have a yard to go to? He goes out when the temperature allows it. He has been out for the past couple of days because the weather was unseasonably nice so he got several walks.
          Is he crated? Pen when we are not at home. What kind of dog is he? bishon  Since when you have him? we got him when he was 12 weeks Is he the only dog? yes Who else gives him command? Husband, son, daughter.  Husband also likes to give him “snacks” just because so the kids give him treats for no reason which I know has hindered the training. Did he pees when nervous or any particular reason?  Any reason

        • 1. Dog belongs to a pack and so he ranks you and your family in #.  Try to find out who is #1 in his mind and let that #1 be his leader and trainer.  All the rest of the family has to follow that #1’s decision and give support to #1.

          2. Treats only for good behavior.  When he does something good, good and good only, then treats.  So if he pees in your house, quickly pick him up calmly, put him outside, keep asking “go potty“, when he pees in the yard or designated acceptable area, then give him a small treat or a pat, keep saying “Good Boy” with a happy tone.

          3. Buy him chew toys but only give him one chew toy at a time and switch them to avoid boredom.  Sometimes I give my dogs an empty plastic water bottle, an empty toilet or paper towel center roll.  A good chew toy with a bone inside will give him hours of pleasure.

          4. I am not familiar with the breed.  You may have to google out and see if he is a breed required exercise to burn out his energy.  

          Perhaps other sisters here have more to comment and suggest.
