I honestly give up on my puppy now. I have a 5 months old male stafford.
Whenever I call his name he comes to me only because he because he knows I
have a treat. The second he realises I haven’t got anymore treats he stops
and walks away. We have been trying the treat method since we have him but
it doesn’t work on him. He doesn’t listen to me at all when we’re outside &
keeps jumping on people and runs after other dogs. I do tend to shout at
him a lot & give him a little smack on the bum. But thats the only thing
that seems to work for him to have a little respect for me. He also bites
me out of nowhere for no reason. I walk him a alot at least 4 times a
day(20-30 min) so he’s not bored. ahhhh my puppy must be from another
friggin planet helppp

Taylor Taylors says:

When you want your dog to come to you, do you use the words “come here” or
the dog’s name? Which one will the dog associate the action with? Which one
is better? 

Stella Capolicchio says:

What kind is that?

Nicholas Williams says:

Adrienne Wagner says:

this is great! except your puppy comes to you already. my puppy is super
shy and timid, she runs away from me when I call her even though I reward
her with a “good girl” and a treat or her favorite toy. this scares me and
I’m not sure what to do

Patrick Jansen says:

all theory. with puppies it might work but i got a smart 8y old beagle, as
soon as i call him he’ll look at me and will try to figure out what i got
for him (food), if he makes the conclusion i got nothing he’ll ignore me
and goes back to his own usual business

Sarah Brooks says:

We’ve just adopted a rescue dog, we don’t know his proper name, but we’ve
called him Sonny. We don’t know his age either. He’s responding to Sonny,
but being a Dachshund cross Jack Russel he has his hunting head on every
time we go out. When he’s out on a long leash or free in the garden, he
doesn’t respond when he’s in hunting mode. When he’s close to us he’s great
or when we’ve got his favorite toy or treat he’ll respond…I was able to
get him to sit on a loose lead 5 times in a row in an open space on a loose
lead so he’s an intelligent dog. I was just wondering what is the best way
to teach a dog who’s just learning his new name, in a new environment with
new people, although we’ve had him for a week and 1 day lol 🙂 Early Xmas
prezzie for us. He’s perfect in every way though. He goes to bed at night
and stays there all night, if you put our food in front he’ll not touch it
untill we say ok 🙂 He’s super, just that one little but where he pulls in
excitement, which he is getting much better at. My question is, how do we
get him to come in an open space, with a long lead, with his hunting head

Many thanks

Victoria Stilwell says don’t adopt a puppy under 7 weeks old because they
need the socializing from other litters and the mother. Research the
breeders or you could end making a mistake getting from a puppy mill.

What type of dog is Dylan?

miah dugan says:

I think he is a puggle! Pug+Beagle. Look it up.

peppercarnage says:

a little OT but do you guys know why dogs often respond so well to a
whistle as your recall cue (as opposed to a word)? my family spent loads of
time teaching my poodle recall with ‘come’ as the cue word, but he was
always a little lackluster coming back to us. but one time i just decided
to start whistling for him instead, and he learned it as the cue for recall
without me even doing anything special. he picked it up as if it were
simply natural. it’s always been a little mysterious to me.
