There is something about Rotties that just steal your heart I have to work very hard with her as she has obviously never had any obedience training, but she is so worth it.

alimel, have you tried this yet?

NO LOOKIE NO COOKIE

Most Rotties I have met are real food hounds, and once they learn that eye contact gets them a reward, the game is ON!

I have never seen that before, looks like a fun game to play with her and yes, she is a food hound! Unfortunately so is my Beagle, so this lesson will have to take place outdoors away from the Beagle monster

Update*** She immediately made eye contact and remained this way for quite a while. We have already mastered the Watch Me command, so I guess this is why she did so well.

I like to not use any command until dogs learn that eye contact means jackpot. Then I pair eye contact with the dog's NAME, and nothing else.

I have never used "watch me" or anything to ask the dog to look at me besides their name.

So glad you enjoyed the game! Once the dog learns to turn you into a cookie dispenser you can teach them SO many things in such a fun way!
