Refusing to do basic commands
Normally Brody is pretty solid on his basic commands. I tell him to sit and he just pops into a sit. But, once in a while, he just flat out refuses to do it. He looks at me like I'm some sort of alien talking gibberish.
This morning was a case in point. As we get ready for work, he gets treated for letting me put his boots on, after putting his harness on, if we are putting his coat on then he gets a treat for being cooperative with that. I do, however, want him to sit nicely for the treat. Nope. Wasn't happening. He looked at me like I was some sort of crazy person and just wouldn't do it. So, no treat. It was a high value treat too, freeze dried beef liver which is one of his favourites.
He's in his crate now, at work, pouting. This dog remembers when he's "owed" a treat.
