    Bubba is super friendly.. Goes and gives everybody his belly. I know he loves me but is not as noticible with me. Its very normal...

    Meeko is the same he adores everyone and everything and gets sooo excited - so much so I dont allow him off the lead because he doesnt leave other people and other dogs alone and not all dogs appreciate his nosey-ness! After a lot of training he 9/10 times walks past people on a lead when commandin him and we are working on ignoring other dogs - hes strugglin a bit with this task! X

    Tiberius is the same way. He loves people, anyone at any time. If someone came to my house to take him he would gladly go with them and smile the whole way to his new home lol. Oddly enough, he especially goes nuts for tall people, its weird but I have a few friends that are 6'5"+ and those people are his favorite people by far. He doesn't like low tree branches, he barks at them and runs away, then slowly walks up to them again, barks at them, and runs away again.

    Daisy believes every person and dog on this earth is specifically here to pay attention to her. Sorry—totally not an exaggeration. She walks great on the leash & is good about staying close—until someone makes eye contact. We practice sitting just inside the front door of Petsmart & letting people & dogs walk past us while she watches. Sometimes it’s tough but it has helped her a lot.

    @MeekosMummy, how did u train your dog to ignore people/dogs? I would like to give it a try. Leo loves getting attention from everyone when he's out and about.

    Hes not treat enthusiastic when hes out on the lead so it wasnt easy but he knows simple commands like sit wait walk etc. When he knew these really well I would make him sit wait walk (when people/dogs were not around at first randomly just make him sit or if hes by a road make him sit and wait) praise when he does the commands or if Leo likes treats give him a little treat. This is all to get him to pay good attention to you when you want him to and to listen outside as well as at home.

    I then put this to the test when people were walking towards us I made him sit wait until the person walked past constantly telling him sit wait stay there wait good boy wait etc.. then walk again. If he goes to move give the AH AH sound (or the sound you use when Leo goes to do something he is not supposed to!!) And repeatedly tell him to sit and wait sounding stern amd serious cos your the boss

    its not a life changing training technique but its worked for us. You have to become really unsociable for a little while when your doing this dont stop and speak to people and walk past explaining hes on strict training and sorry they cant fuss him today. After a few days meeko picked it up well and he just started ignoring people. He still gets excited when people make a fuss of him outside but in general walks are easier. Im using the same techniques with dogs now hoping it works - hes getting better in he has started to sniff and walk but sometimes he just cant help himself especially if the other dog is happy to see him.
