You must be talking about my jack He is sweet and loving and thick as a post!
But to be fair he is trying hard but he is half german shepard full ADHD. So we feel we have made great strides when he holds a stay for more than 15 seconds..
The rest of the time he just looks at us like we have lost our minds!

Ummm yes. I think it is Oakley being rebellious though...

Its funny, cause sometimes I ask him to do something & he just looks at me like "derrrrrrrr"....but if I cross my arms & clear my throat like I mean business...he will do whatever I asked him to do (with a bit of 'tude thrown in)

I don't even have to repeat the command...and this works for basically every command...so its not like my actions have taught him to do something specific...he darn KNOWS what I asked him to do...but chooses not to, haha

I'll tell you. Charlie is very smart and usually obeys. However, when he has it in his mind to do as he pleases, there isn't much you can do. Thankfully, he's a PUG so I can pick him up and make him go where I want.

Sometimes I wonder who's the dog and who's the master!

Dekka for sure knows her cues. Sometimes I think Bounce guesses. Kat LOVES keep throwing behaviours out when she wants something. Silly thing.

I have made a mistake somewhere when I added 'sneeze' to a cue. Abby will sneeze on cue about 80% of the time, but she will also offer sneezes when she is unsure of what I'm wanting. Is this her default behaviour now?

My guess is I have to just try and extinguish the 'unwanted' sneezes by continuing to not reinforce them... and then reinforce the heck out of the cued sneezes.

She has started sneezing when I am asking for eye contact and she 'feels' I have waited too long to reinforce her lol. She likes sneezing.

Edit for spelling

My dogs know their commands, I think. The only one we have trouble with is "heel"... but that's because I suck at teaching a proper heel position. It seems basic enough, but for some reason I just can't seem to accomplish it, lol. Loose-leash walking at my side, sure... formal heeling, not so much.

In general i think yes, Ry knows his commands. He is super good at them if i have great treats (like a bully stick he wants but has to work for). If i tell him to do something in general (like out on a walk) he will lazily take his time. It is my fault for not working on it more. He is a very well mannered dog so i havnt "worked" him for quite awhile. We have never had the thick as a post moments though! He is super quick to pick things up. Like literally took him 1 time to know the sit command as a puppy, and less then 3 to speak.
