Do you find your dog listening better to one family member over the other? When training for a family, it is important to have them work together as one. It can become complicated as it’s ONE dog being trained by different people within the household, who all have different personalities, habits and mannerisms.

This can be unfair to the dog where it does not fully understand the differences of each persons personality and views everyone in a different pecking order from one another.

It’s often the inability of family members to work as a team on their dog training needs that adds to the difficulties for the dog to gain a grasp of what’s being taught. Many times one family member would relay a command and get a result whereas another member would relay the same command and the dog would not do it. This confusion is common and its not always a RESPECT thing from the dog, it’s how family members have different views as to how the pet should be treated and disciplined.
.
.

Ex: one family member might not always correct the dog when it comes to a stop to SIT while another member would in every instance. This can lead to confusion and discrepancy in the dog.
.
.

Ex: a member of the home might not mind the dog getting on the sofa, while the other might always get upset and correct the dog for its behavior, which in turn causes confusion for the dog.
.
.

In the end, everyone must be on the same page. Everyone must learn how to work and handle the dog and everyone in the home must come into an agreement as to the direction that will eventually lead them to the promised land, a functional member of the household.
