He just may not understand yet.

    Poor baby. Well, now you know. I bet it makes you feel better. He's just a little guy, so he still has a lot to learn. Training is so much fun, but so much work. Just remember these guys have very short attention spans and if you do start to train him.....do it in very short spurts. 5 minutes of training, then a long break. That's what I was told by my trainer.

    Awesome to hear that he's ok, a little sorry for him but at least you now know.

    I concur that training our bullies is a lot of fun. With the right motivation, ahem .... treats, they'll do just about anything.

I know I do, I can tune out my hubby, my kids, the tv and the telephone and tune in to just my bullies anytime.

    LOL... sorry he got so scared, but at least you now know he is OK

    Oh, poor Moe! I'm glad he turned out to be okay in the hearing department... But I did chuckle a little... I guess that will teach him to be a stubborn bully. Good luck with the training!!!

    Bet he stays out of the kitchen for awhile when your cooking and pots and pans are rattling LOL I'm glad it is just stubbornness and not more. Enjoy your new baby!

    Since you now know that pots and pans scare him, you can use this to your advantage. Some people use rocks in a plastic bottle and some use them in can, or pots and lids ...but either way you can use this to deter him from unwanted behavior.

    Believe me, I completely understeand about the training with treats. Molly graduated from Puppy Obedience class in 2010 and she is my good girl but when I am working with Moe she just can't stand that he gets treats and she doesn't. I have figured out that I have to tell her "Mommy knows you can do it, but give Moe a chance." and she will step aside for a very brief moment. They get a mini marshmallow when they go potty and this is what I have been using with Moe to teach Sit and Shake. Molly does them both so well and it's funny because eachtime I tell him to sit or shake she does it immediately and wants the marshmallow. Of course, I have to give her one. Moe is smart even though he is stubborn and it shows very well now, he is doing great with potty outside and Sit.
