oh i don't think it's a "women can't lead" sort of thing. I think it's simply because dog growls and such are at a much lower pitch than a female voice, and that male voices tend to be lower than females. puppies and prey have high-pitched voices, and no one would take instruction from them. if i happened to have a low-pitched voice, i think he would have an easier time taking commands from me. he's learning, every time I take him out, he has already improved. this morning he must have been ravenous, but i made him sit before i fed him. every time i gave him a treat, he had to sit first. randomly throughout our walk this morning, he had to sit. most of the walk, he heeled naturally on a short leash, and mostly ignored distractions. he also sat on command for my son! now i have to figure out what he's going to do throughout the day. all he does is follow me around, which i know is good, but i want to figure out little tasks i can teach him to accomplish so he's not so bored.
No announcement yet.
