this would be helpful and get me ahead later in training. Great advice thankscmelik10 said:Another idea which may or may not work for you, start teaching your pup the front finish position. For this start small only 5-6 feet with her out in front of you call her in and just as she gets to you tell her SIT and give a jerk up on the check chord. Then back up 5-6 feet and do it again. Work on this slowly extending the distance and requiring him to sit in front of you when he comes in and then move into the heel position. Eventually he should start anticipating the sit command once he gets close to you and slow down. Once he does this then you can start mixing in a the HEEL command and bring him into the heel position without the front sit. Hopefully this works out for ya.
Yep, this will fix the BULLY Problem. I don't believe you will be able to get the Front Finish, until you address the other problem. cooterACEBLDRS said:What i did was brace myself, and put a knee square in my dogs chest, and told him "DOWN". After a couple of those, he knew who was dominant and stopped this bad habit. I never let him jump up on me or anyone else at anytime. If he would try to jump up on me, I would reach out and step lightly on his back foot at the same time i would give him the command "DOWN". He imediately would move his back foot and return all fours to the ground.
