I trained my dogs somewhat military style, if you will. I may even come across as a hard-ass. My dogs must go to the door and bark to go out, drop what they're doing and come when called, they're not allowed to "give kisses", allowed to lay at my feet but not look at me while i'm eating, not allowed to take food from someone's hands or from anywhere except their dish, etc. My dogs always get compliments and praise over their behavior wherever we go! I'm a firm believer in the spankin', and my dogs were well broke in as puppies and I don't have to even say no anymore... the tone i say their names in is enough. They sit and lay down without words, and i never have to worry about them with other people or strange dogs. They also get protective on command, and will stand guard.
anyone else do this kind of obedience with their dogs?
