I'm an inexperienced dog owner. I have an 9 month old male mini-poodle I take to obedience class. He knows the commands and obeys very well at home, but at his recent dog classes, he refuses to sit or lie down. Treats won't work. If I fold up his back legs to make him sit, he will stand up again. He obeys for other commands like heel. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? The instructor said she would help me, but did not. He is the only small dog in the class. Should I accept that he obeys at home. He attended puppy school at this same facility. He is friendly toward people, but dog school and the groomers is his only opportunity to be around other dogs.
