how can I get my puppy to come to me when I call her? She will only come if she sees I have food, also he is gettingthe hang of going potty on the paper but ofter just goes where she feels like it. I know she knows the differance is just there personality?
don't give her the choice. If she isn't listening, that is exactly what you are teaching her. put her on a leash, and call her, pull her towards you as you ask her to come. don't ask otherwise. As far as potty training, don't give her the run of the house. If she is going potty in other places, you are not watching her well enought. Again, if she doesn't have a choice, she can't be bad. I have heard the maltese and yorkies are some of the hardest small breed dogs to house break.
I have heard that, too, Illusion and my mom has a maltese. Yes, he was so difficult to housebreak. He is 3 years old now and she actually had to take him to PetSmart for the training courses to get him to come to her; or do anything else she says. I am not very familiar with them but I know once she got him trained, he was just fine.
Best of luck!
Don't worry about tomorrow; it has never happened before.
i have a toy Maltese and sometimes she comes when i say her name and sometimes she doesn't she just stares at you for awhile and goes back doing her things like chewing or playing she's a funny dog lol. my dog's a comedian lol
