OK, picture the scene - Jazz has her front legs on the chair so she can look out of the window to see what's going on outside. I see her and say "off". She gets off, and goes to the door and looks out.

Same scene, but with husband in charge. He says "Oi, what are you doing on the chair? Come on now, get down, naughty dog, that chair will be filthy if you keep doing that, and your mother will have a fit. Come on, get DOWN." Jazz stays there, looking puzzled.

So, does anyone else have this problem? And how do I train my HUSBAND??? AAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gotta go with JessicaR on this one. (even though I'm a guy) And I have always found that less words and the K.I.S.S. method works best with dogs. (and humans for that matter).

And unlike dogs, it's best to use the HIGHEST setting in the collar for us guys. We are often NOT paying full attention at first!!!

One of the reasons I like dog is how well they listen. More so if you use short commands and because I say so is all the explanation they understand.

LOL...

Same thing with my parents vs me...and wonder why when I leave the house the dogs go insaine and they cant get them to do stuff...

Dogs dont want a conversation, when they were taught only 1 word out of a sentence....Its like talking to a toddler thats only learned the word "milk" and saying "hey there little fella would you like some milk for breakfast here in a little bit I will go get you some if you want it? Mean while I am going to do some dishes and laundry..."
