I recently introduced two new buttons, "tug" and "ball." I want my learner to press "play" + "ball" when he wants to play ball and "play" + "tug" for play tug and so on and so forth for any subsequent toys I'll add. Right now, he just presses "ball" when he wants to play ball. Before I play ball with him, I press "play" + "ball", but he never does the same. He has also pretty much completely stopped pressing play and is instead just pressing the button for the toy he wants. How can I teach him to press the two buttons in sequence?
I have a 6 month old puppy who's about 7 pounds and sometimes he presses the buttons but they don't make a sound. I hear the click of the button, but since nothing comes out I don't know what he's asking for. Should I just ignore this until he presses it so that sound comes out? Is there a way I can teach him that he needs to press harder/in the center? Or, if I do see which button he's pressing, should I still respond as normal?
Hello! I'm a bit new so apologies if this has already been asked but I've recently started my 6 month old puppy using a button to dictate when he should go outside. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now. He used to be bell trained but I took the bell away since when it was up he wasn't interested in the button. It seems that he is pressing the button all the time, regardless if he wants to go outside. Sometimes he will press it around 5 times in a row and when I go to put the leash on him he runs away. I think he does understand that the button means to go outside, yet he doesn't use it for that purpose always. Is there a way I can signify more clearly that this button is only used for outside? Or limit his repeated pressing of it. I don't want him to think I'm ignoring him or that the button doesn't "work" when I am unable to take him out. I've started saying "No more outside" when he presses it right after we come back in or when I know he doesn't want to go out, but does anyone have other suggestions? Thanks bunches!
