Oh! and I was downloading these pictures on my computer (sent from my iPhone) my husband walks toward me and asks me something along the lines of.... "what the heck are u looking at? &^%^%#% ? " I said: "NO!! It's my ankle!! " ---- we both died laughing...

Ps. I fell because she is 24'' to the shoulder and 50lbs already at 5.5 months!! Im 5'4'' ... She yanked the leash like a horse!

thank you!!! Well, sometimes she "forgets" a command or two here and there... actually I think she just doesnt feel like listening sometimes haha!! But she is just being a puppy even though she looks like a huge bear LOL I dont know if I have attached a recent picture of her...(sometimes hse curls up though and shrinks in size hehehehe) she is big.. but I love it, but training classes are mandatory since she is strong like a horse.. so she can greet people properly and not pull me to follow and leaf moving with the breeze :-) Ive been distracting her when that happens but I have to see the leaf before she does , if ya know what I mean... thanks again!

Flyingpoodle... this video I just recorded a few minutes ago...

Its her "Take me out to potty signal" - its great but... I want her to come get me and/or bring her leash to me (Have no idea how to teach her that)

Well at this point she does what the video shows (so cute)
she sits in front of the door and i front of the leash and moves her neck/head forward like nodding (thats the signal)and if I dont obey she touches the leash with her nose, moved it around - she sits there like a statue and keep doing the signal until I see it, or if she doesnt have to go real bad she lays down and tries again after a little while.

Im new to photobucket hope it works
:-)

Sorry about your ankle. I've done that a few times, not with a dog, but on my own.

I'm late to this thread since I've been in the 19th century post Sandy until last night. I am getting caught up on a number of things though now and read through the posts here quickly.

I have a couple of other "commands" to suggest, although as Countryboy rightly pointed out our dogs don't actually understand the words, they only have a learned association between a sound and the action that you have conditioned that sound to be associated with. Use any words you want for these.

"Leave It" for my dogs means a general stop what you are doing or ignore that tempting thing. Lily will wait to ambush Peeves when he comes down to the basement. She gets told leave it and she walks away from him. Lily finds tissue on floor and wants to eat it, she gets told leave it and walks away. Dog sees ball or other toy and wants to play with it when there isn't time or something else needs to happen...leave it.

"Drop It" for my dogs means let go of whatever is in your mouth right now. Often followed by leave it.

"Get Close" means walk near me if I am moving or sit near me if I am still, but we don't care if you are heeling pretty. I use it to steer around in crowds like at dog shows or in pet store, or to collect the dog when I don't like what I see going on near me.

Ian Dunbar has the view that the most important thing to teach your dog to do is to sit instantly. I think I agree with him, although it could be drop/down as well. His thinking is that if you can make sure the dog won't move until you tell it to that is better than trying to get it to come to you, for example if you have a dog loose near heavy traffic.

I also agree that wait is really useful for many situations. It really is saying don't do anything else until I tell you to. For us "stay" has a more formal meaning in obedience.

===================================

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, Lily cd re - and all that responded.

You made a worried momma feel a bit better, truly. I have been working on STAY. and before she would stay but if I turned my back she would come for the treat. So now that Ive been throwing this little toy for her to catch in the air, she has been "staying" even if I turn my back for a few seconds (before I throw the toy). So thats good progress... I will continue to turn my back and say :"STAY" and each time not look at her for a tiny bit longer.. and then praise, hugs and kisses. And after that I wanna advance to "STAY" regardless of what happens, but she is a puppy she cant really control her excitement yet I guess (6 months old).... What do you guys think? THANK YOU! :-)
