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
by: Jeanette

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.

Dog reacts to noise
by: Frank

My Pyrenees dog becomes very aggressive and runs from dead sleep to nearest outside exit to bark and chase down whatever might be out there whenever he hears me make a certain sound by sucking in on my teeth. I have never taught him to behave that way and even when others imitate it he only responds to my noise. I have to actively avoid that sound. It’s weird.
