rebellious - 4 month old

Postby jfattiga » Wed Dec 07, 2016 1:30 pm

Hello everyone, new to forum and first time CBR puppy. Wondering if it's normal for my puppy to just stop listening? He knows the basic commands sit down stand stay here off... lately he has started ignoring me or he'll sit and stare for a while before doing the task asked, and sometimes more often than not he runs away. The exception during short training sessions. He's very intelligent and learns quickly, he appears stubborn at times, and truly believe he misbehaves just to get a treat or rub down when told no or off..

Depending on the dog they start getting permanent teeth somewhere between 4-5 mos. old. Just be patient and practice the obedience every day whether he cooperates or not. Kind of like the "terrible twos" in toddlers. Do the obedience on a leash so he can't get away.

When you say he knows the commands....yes, he knows what you want, but he doesn't know he always has to obey. That takes more time and training. Keep him on a lead or check cord, and always enforce any command the first time you say it. You're creating habits, and that requires consistency.

Training never stops and repetition is the name of the game.

It is also a process for you and your little buddy. Do not lose hope. Just keep at it and be consistent so that he doesn't seem to get different signals when you say something.

I am going through the same thing right now. Murph is 4 months in a week or so and after she tore into the trash and one spanking, she goes through these "spells" to where she refuses to listen then 20 minutes later she will listen with some hesitation.

Yep.

At that point myself.

It's almost as if she's bored. Training that used to excite her, have her paying attention to me and what we're doing, no longer holds her focus. I'm continuing to work on the OB and trying to mix it up a little with some more fun and excitement ala Bill Hillmann.

It is frustrating for sure.
