Hi I have a cavalier king charles and haven't had a dog before so i dont know the norm but she is 6 months old and teaching her a simple trick like lay has now taken 8 days and she still doesn't do it. I say sit, she sits, i say lay, she stares at me with a blank look, so i lay her down by taking her front legs and streching them to she lays and then give her a treat. Is it ment to take this long??? Sit and stay she lernt in a day or two. Shake hands took 3 weeks. Jump she lernt in a day. Peeing....that is annoying she KNOWS not to pee in the house KNOWS it but 1-2 a week she does it and KNOWS its wrong because she runs to her bed (in her crate) and she ONLY ever does that when she pees, WHY does she do this, i have spent week trying to teach her to go to the door and put her paws on it but she wont. Is this normal, any one have any ideas for either of these issues???
