When you figure it out, tell me!
. All of mine think when ppl come over it is to see them. Mine make sure that ppl pet them and some of my dogs won't get down until you give them a hug. (damn they're vicious!!!) They'll kill ya with kisses.....
But seriously, I use word commands. One we us is "GIT" and they know to go lay down and get off of folks or to get out of the way.
And when ours are rough housing or getting excited, we use "BE NICE" and they stop whatever they are doing.
They were also trained to "RELEASE" when they were pups.
It takes repeating alot. Just like how kids learn!
Good Luck with "our lil' sis" Ivory
ps. Glad to hear you are getting that baby her Rabies!!! yeaaaaaaaaah
