Mine is 7 month old , he can do sit, down, heel, paw,leave it- take it, stay, go to bed, come here, and spin.

I actually taught him stay as follows: first he needed to know the command "go to bed" *his basket. Every time he wanted to hopp I sent him back and said stay. After a while he understood that it also works outside his basket. Might be a weird way but it worked for me. Afterwards I taught him to sit" and when I say "sit" and combine it with stay he does both , if I just say stay, he is still standing

A friend of mine has a Bolonka she taught him "to stay" in a different way but needed another person. She put the dog on the leash (the other person had to hold him) and she stepped away while saying "stay". When the person who held the dog released it from the leash she said "come here" for the dog to come.
I just allured him with chicken when I said come

About the command down, or lie down, I just stretched my leg and he had to crawl under it to get the food. Everytime he was in the right position I said "down". After two days he knew what I meant Good Luck

Any good training begins with two receptive minds. The best state of mind for absorbing information is a calm one. To open the door of communication with your dog she has to be calm and attentive! Here is a Kikopup video on how to "Capture Calmness" which includes training the "Default Behavior." A dog feels a lot more secure when she knows she has a "Default Behavior" that will always please you when you run into road blocks with training. Also, giving her a good long walk before training helps ease her mind and gives her an advantage when training "calm."

I would suggest training these first before obedience stuff. This way you'll lay good communication groundwork to help guide you both during training the more complex and time consuming behaviors ("Sit", "Lay Down", "Stay")

As for the barking, there's a book I always recommend to people with Chihuahuas because their reactions to the world are very different than a larger dog, so our reactions must be coherent with theirs in keeping with their size and sensitivity!


The author of this book writes that with Pogo (one of three of her Papillions) she will remove him bodily from the situation that is causing him to "over alert" or "over excite" himself. Her example is squirrels at the window. When Pogo starts bouncing and screaming she will pick him up and put him in her lap, which teaches him that the more excited he is, the further away he gets from the squirrels. As soon as he's quiet again, he can get down and go look at the squirrels again.

It's a great book, only 1 cent on Amazon!

Hope this helped! Training is so much fun, a great way to bond, but it sure can feel frustrating sometimes! Good luck and keep us updated!

I got this book last week and so wish I'd had it when I got Mickey. It all "feels" right. I read a lot when we got him, but a lot was conflicting. And what is good with big dogs isn't always the best for our little one.
