    Hi

    I have a almost 6 months old cavalier king charles and she only ever seems to listen me when i yell at her.

    For example i was in the kitchen earlier today and she ran in, i told her to go, she took 2 steps back then came forward (she knows what go means), then i said it a bit louder and she left the kitchen and came straight back, then i yelled at her to go and she left.

    Its the same with come, she will look at me and not move then when i say it in a stern voice she listens, i hate yelling at her is there any way i can get her to listen without yelling???

    she is doing what all my teenagers do..waiting to make sure i mean it..so respond on your first command..you might back up and redo a little obedience training.. I told my son if i just hollared first i could truly destress my life! think i could go back and redo obedience with him? Old boss's third rule for training your dog..never give a command you dont' enforce.
