So I have issues with both dogs about this. Lets start with Sierra. She is very used to getting a command for things, we never did use the clicker much in the beginning, and have only started now since we are doing agility. Anyhow, when I'm waiting for her to offer the behavior (showing interest in something) she'll sit there and stare at me. If she does by chance show interest I'll click and treat immediately. Then she will do the same sit and wait for a command. I don't know what to do so I kinda show interest in the object myself and I'll click and treat when she does. Then we're right back at square one waiting forever. Is it possible that some dogs just need more direction/luring/ect? And then there is Kitana. Kinda the same deal. She will usually get off to a better start though. She will show interest, get treated, then do it again and again. But no more then that. So if I treat tons of times then try to wait for her to offer more, she doesn't. In fact if she doesnt get a click and treat for offering what she originally got treated for, she will go lay down somewhere as if we are done. If I try to lure her, she shrinks away. I've had her about 6 months, and we havent done much with her due to my pregnancy (hormones or something, I can't stand the sound/smell of the dogs most of the time Anyhow, I have no clue what to do with her. So we move on to something she knows, which involves sit right now. Honestly all I'm trying for is getting her to touch a margarine lid instead of my hand (she wont go near the lid unless I point to it, then she tries to go for my hand, which I dont click for, just ignore) Help!
