dogs arent humans so they cant speak our language, whenever you say no he might not understand the meaning of the word so when you say it say it sternly and when hedoes something good be sure to reward the do g with pettting and treats
When you want a dog to understand something. You have to say your command "No." And when they obey to that, and do what you want. You reward them, whether it's just happy talk, "Like good boy/girl!" And petting them. OR rewarding them with a treat will work. (:
Your dog doesn't understand any words. No dogs do. Rather they learn to associate certain types of behavior in response to certain vocal commands. Dogs don't understand the word "sit" for example. They just learn through training that they are supposed to sit whenever they hear the sound of that word.
big deal! my goofy cat doesn't understand no, yes, get oughta my recliner, get out, come in, stop that, here, over there, not now, not ever, you're ugly, you're dumb, but I love you...;-) "my cat ain't real bright"...
I agree use a firm voice with eye contact and offer plenty of affection and.praise with or without a treat. But I also recommend using the high pitched noisemaker as a deterrent for bad behavior with firm NO. It won't be long before you'll no longer need the device, just a verbal command will suffice. But continue with lots of praise, even when good behavior is done automatically. Thank you
