    Thanks for all the advice guys, I figured out the problem and am gettin better results now. The first problem was he didn't respect me as a pack leader when I called him and tried to bait him in with food he'd look at me and shake his head and walk the other way. So I had to changed a few things to his environment.
    Firstly I took his food away and only fed him on a schedule, I used to leave his food out so he was never hungry and never look at me for food.
    Before I fed him I'd make him do things for me like sit, stay, down and wait till I give him the word.
    I also took his toys away and he could only have them on my terms, he also had to work for them.
    These were the main changes I made and have gotten very good results.
    Here is a link that I used which was very helpful.

    He is more of a dominant pup to my last dog so hes keeping me on my toes and I am still learning about training dogs and I realise they are not all the same.

    There is a saying I tell people to help them understand the "Alpha" concept.

    "I own the air you breathe"

    You seem to be well on the way to achieving that Alpha status now that you've got control of all the "resources". Well done.

    Rosie loves her kibble and that is what I mainly use as a training treat and it works really well. I think if you establish yourself as the leader and you make training fun, it doesn't really matter what you use.
