How Can I Get My Cocker Spaniel To Listen To Me?
She's Not Listenting To Me!
I have a 13 month old female Cocker Spaniel and she only listens and obeys when she wants to!!
She is so playful and energetic, but the listening thing she will not comply to unless she feels like it. I have tried treats as rewards, she went to puppy kindergarten, and nothing has worked so far.
Every single day it's a struggle to get her to come inside.
I know she loves being out back and playing in the yard but in the morning and at night it's hard to get her to listen.
When I get ready to go to work she runs so I can't crate her. I crate her every night, but only sometimes during the day. When I don't crate her during the day she destroys and tears up everything in my room. I know she does this out of boredom, but I have given her toys, and challenging toys, but she still is very mischievous.
She just got spayed in December, but that only calmed down the urge to hump the other dog. Believe me I'm thankful for that, but the hard-headedness has got to come to an end.
