A lot of it can be how you manage the dog too. Ie if the dog comes to you to start something eg brings a toy, do you engage or not? Who is in charge of starting and ending play and training sessions?
The kelpie heeler x that I used to know - would put the soggy tennis ball in your lap in an attempt to get you to throw it. She learned "cant reach" as in "I can't reach the ball to throw it again" very quickly. Where as my current dog isn't much into retreive or figuring things out for herself - so she just stands there with the ball at her feet and wont bring it closer unless I go inside the house and she still wants a game. And then she tries it on, and I make her go on her bed.
thanks for the tips...and support
i guess its up to what kind of information i find regarding training dogs.
i was just over my friends place today and he has a 5month old labradoodle who was nipping at my shirt and shorts.
my friend said its just cause hes young, i hope its not like that all the time...
