Does anyone have any tips for training very difficult, slow learning dogs?
My little Abbie really is quite dumb No two ways about it, she just doesn't seem to pick anything up. One day she is happy to use the doggy door, the next she remembers she is scared of the noise it makes and attempts to jump up at the door instead..
She has a real bad habit of jumping up for attention. Have been tying to teach her to sit for about 2 months now but she seems to find it uncomfortable and absolutely refuses to sit still for more than 2 seconds.
I'm not expecting miracles..just some basic manners. eg. sit, stay, down etc. The type of thing it took two seconds for Buckley to learn.
Some tell me that pointers need to be a little more mature before training (she is 8 months), however i spoke to her breeder a few days ago who seemed confused as to why she was being so difficult..
She was even more shocked when i told her she had taken a few snaps at people..to be honest i have my suspicions about how she was socialised and treated when she was a pup.
She really is the most ...unique dog i have ever met and i'm at a loss when it comes to teaching her how i want her to behave.
