    When we first got Jax he would bite and pull on everyone's pant legs, the curtains and everything else he was able to pull. I bought Apple Bitter Spray from Petsmart, sprayed the curtains and my pant legs and after a few tastes, stopped the pulling on the curtains and clothes.

    Selective hearing. I bet he 'learns' it real quick when a treat is involved.

    I think it's going to take a while for my 11 week old boy to know his name.... my wife and I have multiple nicknames for him.

    some call it stubborn, others will say ignoring -- I tend to think they are contemplating what they want to do or not do

    Red face Re: Does he know his name?

    Quella is the same way. Blantantly ignores me when I call her name, give her kissey noises, clap my hands. And most of the time, she's just sitting in a corner or wandering aimlessly though the house. It's not even like she's intrigued with a toy or naughty. I've been spending more time calling her name when she is within my reach, but when she's distracted. That way I can blow in her ear to get her attention or make several noises and when she makes eye contact, I'll reward her with a treat. It's works roughly 65% of the time. I think the hardest thing is when wandering Petsmart or training class and I call her name and she keeps walking or veers to smell (and knock off) items from the shelves. I luckily have the advantage and can pull her leash to bring her right next to me; however e-m-b-a-r-a-s-s-i-n-g. Anyone use any other tools to get their pups to recognize their name and you as the leader?

    XoXo from Quella La Roux and her mommy too.

    I'm only five days in and I can relate. I was googling DIY noisemakers to get Danté's attention... Because "NO" is not cutting it anymore �� so.... Anyone do the beans in a can trick?!

    Hudson & unnamed puppy!

    Re: Does he know his name?

    We thought Hudson was deaf for a while... Did a bunch of tests and everything. Turns out he is just a bulldog, haha. He's gotten better with age.
