Today I want to talk to you about how to make your dog listen to you.
I personally think that training is really important for your dog as it teaches him how to behave and what is expected of him.
Before I get into the training tips, let see how Dominant is your dog? Then I will tell you a little story.
Story: Why sometimes I don't listen to my Guardian
So I guess you all know by now that Tania is my beginning and my end, I live to be with her and Gianni. The thing I hate most in this world is being left alone.
I spend all my life before we arrived in Italy with mom. Ok, I know what you are thinking, such a mamma’s boy. Yes, I admit it, I am a mamma’s boy.
So when Tania leaves me on my own, I act out by barking when she arrives and when she leaves. I bark as if it is the end of the world and nothing that Tania says or does will change it.
I hate being on my own and nobody is going to training me to change. When I am with my guardians, I am the sweetest little dog but I become one of the “Hounds of Hell” when they leave me and don’t drink, eat or sleep when I am on my own, I just wait.
I know she’s the boss and I know she can’t be with me all the time but I want her to be and I won’t settle for anything less.
Why Won't My Dog Listen To Me?
This is a common question that most first-time Dog Training“Guardians ask. As a dog myself, I will let you in on the secret, let me ask you a few first:
- Do you have to raise your voice every time you want your Dog to listen to you?
- Does your Dog always come or sit on command – anytime and anywhere you want him to?
If your answers are mostly in the no, its time you seriously reconsider your role as a sincere Dog Guardian and an ideal pet parent.
Get Your Dog To Listen To You
Before you begin any training, you must first establish yourself as the “ALPHA dog” of your family. Your dog must know that you’re the leader of the pack and you are the one in charge.

Once you successfully established yourself as the Alpha, training your dog and making him listen will be a lot easier than you can imagine. Remember, if your dog does not learn to “listen”, all your training efforts will be in vain!
