How do I get my dog to do what I tell her to do? Answered

My dog is pretty much good friends with me, but she doesn't do what I tell her to do. He name is Willy. I feed her, give her baths, pet her, and play with her, but she doesn't do what I tell her to do. How do I change that?

Check out Cesar Milan (the dog whisperer). He is absolutely amazing. Basically he teaches how to treat your dog as a dog not a human and also to recognise the behaviours the dog exhibits and what to do about them. Not re-inforcing the behaviour you dont want. I highly recommend his methods. Good Luck.

Please look him up on Google. He is a brilliant Dog Trainer and most commonly known as the "Dog Whisperer".

> treat your dog as a dog not a human and also to recognise the behaviours the dog exhibits and what to do about them
. That is something that many dog owners never understand. Dogs are often compared to 2 or 3 year old kids (not an unfair comparison in many cases) but they are not small humans. Eg, a big, toothy grin is sign of aggression/challenge to most dogs.

> My dog is pretty much good friends with me
.  You're already off to a bad start. You are the Alpha Dog. You are The Supreme Boss. You and your dog can have lots of fun together, but you are not friends.

You have to train her. She has the brain power of a three year old human. How would a three year old act if they had never been taught language etc.?

Some dogs take weeks to change any behavior and some dogs learn in 5 mins. I had a professional trainer work with a deaf dalmatian that I had once and he got more done in an hour than I'd gotten done in a year.

Maybe you should look into professional help just to get things started.

doing things the same way each time is a part of the key. If you change your methods in mid stream they don't understand.

I don't change very often. I've only had her for 6 months, but all the methods I tried has done little difference. May be I will look for a professional trainer.
