Just a lighthearted thread here. What is the funniest/oddest training moment you've had? Did you get an unexpected outcome from your methods? Did your dogs outsmart you? Or was it just one of those days? Here's mine: With my old golden retreiver, Tigger, we always had her in front of us when we positioned her in a "sit". From then on, she always sat directly in front of us. She could be across the yard, but would come running to sit directly in front of us when we said "sit". Although it made our attempt at teaching her "heel" into a total disaster, we didn't bother teaching her a formal recall. My rott/husky mix Odin had a bad habit of chewing inapproriate items, like shoes, furniture, etc. Whenever we caught him with something in his mouth he shouldn't have, we'd tell him "drop it". When he dropped it, we would give him praise, a treat and an appropriate chew toy. Well...the little sneak started deliberately stealing items he wasn't allowed to chew! He'd prance right up to us with something in his mouth, wait for us to say "drop it" and expect his treat. Needless to say, we had to change our training methods on that one.
