Have you tried crate training? It worked with ours. Takes time for awhile on your part though. Even during the night. I have been able to crate train and teach sit and lay down. But not as successful yet with walking on a leash. If you do find a trainer let us know. I would use one too.

I am a firm believer in high praise training instead of beating the crap out of your dog when they do wrong. Dogs respond much better to high praise then they do to violence. With that said, you need to "sit" your dog down, by using a choke chain and leash. Dogs learn by repetition. Hold the leash in 1 hand, pull up on it gently, and with your other hand, push down on their butt while saying "sit". Do this over and over, praising him or her very much until he or she does it on their own. Once they realize they will get praised and petted generously by hearing the word "sit" and doing it, they will do it on command, looking for the praise they will receive from you.

please remember that dogs don't "speak". They are much more receptive to physical commands than verbal and sometimes the verbal can muck things up for them. Use a flat palm to indicate "sit" (push on the but if they're being stubborn). A horizontal hand to get them to lay down and snapping your fingers for attention work well, but you have to be consistent. You also have to be more willful than the dog. Add verbal commands after physical commands are mastered.
When it comes to potty training crating is great....but keep them on a schedule!. Try youtube for visual tutorials and good luck with your dog.

You can train her if you have the time and patience to do it. Solely from my own personal experience, females are more stubborn than males and can take a little more time.

A little advice if you haven't tried these things yet:

1. Feed her a good puppy food to make accidents easier to clean up and help regulate her digestive system.

2. Start a routine and stick to it. Like a previous poster said, dogs learn by routine and repetition.

3. Decide on the commands you and her caretakers will use and be consistent. When one uses "go outside" and another uses "go potty" it can become confusing to her and less productive.

4. Work on training in short 15 - 30 minute sessions at a time. If the dog gets uninterested, give her a break and come back to it. You want your training to be positive.

5. Reward her for her progress. When she does something you ask or potties outside, give her a cheerio. I like to use these because they are a small treat.

6. Each time you let her out of the crate, take her outside on a leash to the same area. Give her 5 - 10 minutes to use the bathroom. If she doesn't take her back in and put her back in her crate for a little bit then try again. Once she does use the bathroom, give her a cheerio, praise her, and have play time. She will quickly relate going outside to a treat and play time. When she is caught IN THE ACT of an accident, tell her "No" and take her immediately outside to finish her business. When she finishes outside, praise her and give her a treat.

7. By nature dogs are den animals, a crate will not only prevent accidents but will also be the dogs own personal space.

8. As for visual commands, most trainers I have met implemented them after the dog was accustomed to verbal commands. Snapping your fingers does work to gain attention but it is due to the variation in sound. Dogs have very sensitive hearing and training puppies have short attention spans. Keeping their eyes on you watching for a command can be very difficult, especially when there are other interesting sounds and smells around because of their curious nature.

9. Stick with the set commands and routine. If you break her routine, you are damaging everything you are working to accomplish. By training her yourself, she will look to you as her leader.

I've always trained my dogs and have been very successful. My dogs respond to nearly anything I say and when they want something will even come get my attention and take me to what they want. It's amazing what routine and repetition can do. Good luck with your pet!

Does anyone know of a trainer in the area for dogs? I read the old posts. Can someone give me an email address? I have a food aggressive dog who is now becoming protective. We have a baby on the way and have to get this taken care of...now!
