I feel like I am going backwards with Mollie
I used to be THE boss! I was the 'alpha'. Now it seems that Mollie thinks she is!
She won't act when I say the commands without treats. The only trick she does now without food is "sit", all the others she doesnt do unless I have a treat in my hand.
When I DO have treats, she stops when I give a command and runs off and starts playing. I dont know why she all of a sudden is doing this.
I am not some military-command person. I make the training sessions fun and they last no longer then 5mins at a time.
She usually walks very well on the lead, but yesterday and today she would lunge && stop.
Has she suddenly thought the positions have turned?
What can I use instead of treats for the tricks/commands?
I feel frustrated
Am I doing something wrong here?
BTW, she is 3months old.
Thanks and if you all are thinking "Demi grow up, she is a puppy and likes to play" feel free to say it!
