I am so frustrated I have 2 dogs I got the second dog three months after the first the first was able to obey all commands and was doing them well. When I got the 2nd dog they would sit,stay, and go down but only with treats with food and not for long periods. They used to stay longer but no more and never outside. If I try to train them separately, each is totally focused on trying to find the other. If I train them together they respond for maybe 2 or three tries then forget it, they start to play with each other and forget about training. They are maltese dogs and now they are 15 months and 12 months. I also have a husband who although I insist the dogs sit when I come in and sit for food etc. He only does it when I tell him to and never when I am not around. If he tells the dogs to sit and one lies down instead :he figures it is ok and treats them anyway. I keep saying I have to train my husband first but I think that is hopeless.
