After realizing that my husband doesn't do such a great job training Spooky I have decided to participate if not take over his training. I spent 15 minutes with Spooky and trained him to sit and look at me when I ask for things. I repeat his training every day and now he is so good at it that he won't jump on me anymore. After he got good with "sit" command I have decided to teach him "down". I am not kidding when I say it took me 2 minutes to teach him that. When my husband got home I showed what Spooky can do and he could not believe it. I am now doing both commands separately every day for 15 minutes. Also when I am around Spooky doesn't seem to pee in the house but when my husband is around he goes where ever he wants. :roll: I am going to start working on "speak" command next week. I don't want to teach him too much too quickly. I use the same kind of techniques as I did on my 8 year old and 13 year old dogs.
