Tuxedodog Posted October 19, 2014 Report Share Posted October 19, 2014 I have had Charley for a year now, he is 3. When I got him from the rescue I was told that he was the only BC to come from a private owner (the person passed away) that had absolutely no training. We have gone to some training classes, Focus and Control - it was a great help, but Charley still has some quirks I would like to smooth out. Charley still jumps on me, not my husband, and if hubby comes into the room while he is climbing on me, he slinks off into his crate. I have not been passive about my disapproval of the behavior. He knows it is not allowed, but what he wants to do overpowers what he is allowed to do. We have the battle of the door. He must sit and stay to be let out. Some days the sit requires that we walk away and try over again. What I forgot to say is that most of the time, he is the most obedient of dogs, and then there is the clueless other. Now I am trying to train him to the invisible fence, I can't even get his attention when we walk out of the house on a leash. Walking on a leash has not been one of his better skills, on walks I use our other dog to focus him and limit where he walks to keep him from ping ponging across the road. Before I try this with learning the boundaries, I wanted to ask for advice. We will be moving in the spring to a place with no hard fence and I would like to shorten the learning process at a new location. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
