Question Does your havanese ignore you sometime?

Whenever we took our havanese outside, i notice sometime he would totally ignore us when we tell him to come, he would give us a funny look and just sit there pretend he didn't hear us he wasn't busy or distracted by anything, he would just sit there, but when he sees us starting to move toward him he would quickly stand up and all of a sudden he can now hear us just fine....what is up with that? LOL

Mine likes to ignore me when I leave without her, she pouts across the rooms and won't even look at me she's so pissed, but for the most part..OR if I call her for a bath, there is another selective 'deaf' moment..

My trainer told me that when Sergio just stops and sits like that on our walks, he wants me to play with him or give him attention. So, I just pet him under his chin and say, "Good boy, Sergio! C'mon," and then keep moving. Trainer also suggested taking a toy outside and giving him the toy. I sometimes will start walking backwards slowly while I coax him to follow. Or I'll move to his side so he's walking by my ankles. Sometimes I'm walking too fast or too far ahead for his comfort level.

Just try anyone of those things. It can't hurt.

Yeah, I've noticed Louis will do this too. He's walking along just fine, then I feel a tug on the leash. I look back and he's just sitting there giving me this look like "What the heck are we doing out here?" I act excited and tell him to come and he follows like nothing happened. So odd! But for the most part, it's very hard to have a moment when I'm NOT ignored by my entourage of cats and dogs. They follow me everywhere around the house.

I have a couple with "selective hearing", always hear when I'm near the treats in the kitchen, but not when they thing they are going to get a bath.

Oh Yea! Especially when they do not want to go back inside. They want to stay out longer or they have nnot done their business yet.

My pups do that now, as little as they are. The black one will keep right with me and come in the door. Lately the other one looks at me and backs up, like, No, not ready yet.

Trooper LOVES long walks. If I try to come in too soon he does this to tell me he's not done walking. LOL, I think he knows *I* need the exercise. Even if we go on a long one he's not ready to come back in yet. He LOVES it outside!!! Makes me super thankful we live in CA and have pretty good weather year round.

Rosie is not good about coming to me, she will take off running like heck, but if I yell STOP, she knows to stop and she will and wait for me to come pick her up. No she won't come to me, but will stay whereever she stopped until I get there. Not perfect, but works for me.
