    648117, That is the best explanation I have ever heard!!!

    You know, something else may be going on. And that has to do with your attitude.
    Somehow a lot of people approach an obedience exercise differently that a trick. Simply because the obedience is a must and the trick is for fun.
    I know I have done this myself for a long time. Untill someone told me, that the way I reward is different when I reward, lets say a good heel, than when I reward a sit up.
    So I took a step back in my obedience training, payed more attention to my attitude and started rewarding like cray. Food and play! Exaggereted sqealing!:rolleyes: Just like I do when I train a new trick and she does it right for the first time...And rewarding unpredictably.
    So, I don't know if this is the case with you. I know, I thought I did reward the same way, but I don't like obedience training, and that showed in my rewarding. I just never saw it myself;)

    Chloe gets bored/frustrated very fast with obedience or tricks. She loves tricks (not so much obedience), but she gets frustrated quickly. I have come to just working with her for 2-3 minutes per training session, then giving her at least an hour break. Don't know how long you keep your training sessions to, but maybe try making them shorter, and stopping when he still wants to learn. (Sorry if something like this has already been said, I didnt read all of the replies.)
