Redneck86 is an unknown quantity at this point
Training. Please help

My pit (mossy) is about a year and 3 or 4 months old. I'm trying to get her trained. She's a great dog. Not mean and very loving. When I constantly work with her with treats she'll listen. But when i work without treats she doesn't wanna pay attention or anything. When I call for her she stops and looks at me but doesn't come. Can y'all give me some pointers. On making her come. Sit. Stay. Those r the main things I need her to learn and do

I sprattically (SP) give my dogs treats when training so they never know when I'm not giving treats. Example, when training my 4 month old pup, I will say sit, treat, sit, treat, sit, PRAISE NO TREAT, sit, treat, sit, PRAISE, sit, PRAISE, sit, Treat...then break....kinda like that. I wouldn't get a routine so to speak because I have noticed my dogs figure it out, little buggers.

You can also get a long lead and work with your pup on COME. Its hard to get them to realize what your asking when you are far away from them without a means of correction or nudging. Your pup is still young so it should not take much to get your point across. have high value treats, cheese (if belly is OK) hot dogs, liver, smelly high value stuff your dog cant resist. My dog as a pup was not food motivated so I used his favorite ball.

Dogs are motivated on more than just love! Remember dogs should have some type of reward when you are doing training sessions and treating intermittently keeps motivation up. NOw there also comes a time when you need to wean the treats down to after several commands or so. So if your dog is 100% sure what you are asking then you can start adding a little correction. IF my dog is 100% of the time sitting for food, then I can put the food in my pocket and say sit, when they sit treat. So if you are at that level then you can take the food away and say sit, if they look at you like you are crazy, give a quick pop on the leash and as soon as they sit praise a lot and treat. Same goes for the other commands. If you jump to this step too quickly your dog could get confused and it will make your training harder. But if your dog is ready they start to understand they still have to listen even if you don't have a treat in their face.
