Milo, on command will be mean or bark and will stop on command also. Why would anyone teach this to him ? I can't figure out what purpose there would be for teaching him this.

IF hears whistling on tv , that's how it began, or if I whistle at a bird. He turns his back on me and acts as the nastiest meanst dog you can ever imagine. If I say hokay he stops immediately and returns to the cute charming goof he is usually.

I can't figure out what purpose there is for this being taught to a dog. That is my question

Also he will bark if I stretch my hands above my head hands interlocked until I put my hands at my side then he stops and is an adorable family member again. If my hands aren't interlocked he looks at me intently but does not bark.

I have looked online and can't find any indication of the purpose of a dog being taught these two things. I'm interested in why this was considered useful by a previous owner or by anyone what's the point of it. Thanks, Jeanette

I just learned from a donna

It's like this no one taught him. Dogs react to different stimuli differently than we do . Whistling hurts they're ears . And putting my hands above my head makes me bigger and he doesn't like it . That's all . I'm so glad I emailed to the contact us on this website . I learned something new. Thnx pyr of Ontario.
