Lewis Moon Posted September 5, 2011 Report Share Posted September 5, 2011 At 22 months, Cerb's gotten to be a relatively big boy, but some issues that he's always had problems with don't seem to be getting that much better. He loves people and will sometimes ignore commands in order to solicit play from them. When I'm working with him off lead at the park, he's rock solid when no one's around. Add another dog owner and he'll pay attention if I keep eye contact, don't let his attention wander and If I shorten the distance down to less than 100 feet. If he gets an opening, he's over and pestering the other folks. Then he's so excited it's hard to get his attention. Don't get me wrong, the fact that he's so happy and absolutely LOVES everyone is a plus, but... I work with him a LOT with no one around. Perhaps I need to take advantage of the outdoor festival season here and work with him with more around people. Also, could it be the Lab in him? A guy here in the area has a Lab gun dog that regularly wins competitions who has the same issue. Just happy and loves everyone. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
