Hey guys, any of you you guys can give more tips/suggestions on how to improve my obedience? I'm driving my dad nuts since I am very hard-headed. laugh out loud

Dad uses clicker training way back when I was a pup, I'm turning 5 next month and I seem to still get distracted a lot, mom believes I have dominance issues as well.

Hope to hear from any of you guys soon smile

I love to learn- new tricks :)

Hi Gigolo! wave

Has your mom or dad called PetSmart to see about their obedience classes? I am going to go to puppy classes soon. Just a thought.

Miniature Schnauzer are very smart dogs!

When I was in puppy class. The teacher told my mommy that I wont pass the class. One class before the last class. So my mommy got a friend that was a trainer. So we work for like 2 hours of all we need to know. And the next class we pass with flying color!
