using a stick or your hand will send your learning curve in reverse. a scared dogs lears nothing. terrible idea. really.
as far as rotts, I hated working with them. fun, sweet dogs, but too hard headed. no good for real protection (IMO) terrible out, stubborn. if you can manage the rotts, I'm impressed. is your boerboel a toy, food, or attention driven dog? you can hone in on what he likes and use it if you know what it is.

The rotts were trained by my sis in law and I. very attention driven. The Boerboel is my significant other's dog. It isnt attention driven. and only listens to my SO. how do i change that? as far as i can tell it is food driven but is on some special diet to make it gain some muscles. (lol My SO's doggie bodybuilding diet ftl) so no treats or such. how do i work around that?

I've got an AKC belgian malinois... its my first dog. I picked him up free from my friend and he was already crate trained, so I figured I couldn't pass him up.

He does fairly well with commands, but sometimes he just won't listen (like when I actually NEED him to "come"); its like he knows... We went to Memorial Park for a ride (run for him) and when it was time to leave there, he went and hid in the bushes. I tried softly calling him, sternly calling him... nothing worked. I had to go in, grab his 'lil neck and carry him out. Maybe he knew it was time to get in the truck...

Thoughts?

you have to find a treat he CAN have. ask your vet for diet-restricted treats, they should be able to help. I know a lot of dogs who have various diet issues for health, allergies, weight loss/gain. there has GOT to be something he can have, even if it's just a taste. does he have a toy drive?

pre-k;
how long have you had him? have you figured out his motivation? you can always stick small treats in your pockets and give them out for returning to the vehicle when you're done playing. it'll make him want to come back to the truck to get his goodies. also, I would not let him work off-lead until you are really good with him. anything else?

melissa, as far as listening to you, be the one to feed him for two weeks. put his dinner in his bowl, but hold it by your chest. make him sit. when he's cool, put it waist height and let him eat about a quarter of it. lift it back up and make him sit again. repeat. at least an hour after dinner he can play with toys (you don't want to work him near dinner time, they get excited and can get GVD http://www.critterchatter.com/past_i...g05/bloat.html

play fetch with him. start by holding his toy and palying with it while you have it, establishing ownership. if he stops, take it and keep it. there can be no other toys around, or he'll just find one you don't have.

the purpose of you feeding him is to establish his pecking order. he sees your SO as the alpha, and thinks he's next. this puts you as his provider as well as the alpha(your SO).
if his toy drive is slow, cut a slit in a tennis ball and put a small amount (1) of his dinner in it ( or peanut butter is good if he can have it). make sure this is nowhere near his supper time. he'll want to play with the ball as it smells good and tastes like something he loves. I keep small bits of whatever the vet allows in my pockets for instant correction. it's a good thing my SO does laundry. I hope it's a good start, ask me anything if it doesn't go well!

I never let mine work off leash until their on leash manners are impeccable(for pre-k). oh, and if he stalls on you, reattach his lead and just walk right out. I use a gentle-lead on my golden. for the malanois or shepherd, use a seperate collar for "work" or being out somewhere, and regular for around the house. the work collar tells him it's time to learn, they love it. the keller method tells you "right hand moves=correction, left hand for praise". used on a choke chain alllthough that's not a good name for it. a regular slip-chain is what I'm referring to. my working dogs would change attitude immediately when the work collar came out! lemme know if it works, and join a schitzhund club for maximum payoff! if I still had a sleeve, I'd come show you what I mean. I hope non of what I said was too vague.

ps; everyone please read up on GVD. my shepherd had it several years ago and it almost killed him. the er vet renamed the operation the "Ingram" after he survived. cost me about $11,000 for his surgery and recouperation at A&M. the ear infection he had when I got him made the total cost around $20K, but the hardest part was on me. he was worth twice that easily, I had the money.
