Training
by: Donna

Although they are not obedience dogs, they can be trained with patience, time and consistency. You must also make it worth their while.

Only train for a few minutes at a time or they get bored. Make training part of the day such as them coming and sitting before they get to eat their dinner or sitting before they get to cross the street.

It may take 20 minutes before you get the first sit but in a couple of weeks you should get it down to 10-20 seconds.

Always use positive-reinforcement training.

You might consider bringing in a positive-reinforcement trainer to get you started.

Best of luck and most of all, have fun with your dog. Make it fun for him.
