Why does my dog ignore me? is, believe it or not, one of the more popular questions we get asked at K9 Magazine so fear not, you are not alone. In fact it happens to the best of us, so I've told myself. It's not so much a philosophical query as as 'please can you give me advice to help me get my dog to pay attention to me' kind of plea. So, let's do exactly that. This special report will give you an insight into why dogs can, and do, ignore you as well as advice on how to capture your dog's attention and change their thought process.

Getting frustrated that your dog jumps up on people when you are visiting friends? Can’t understand why your dog runs away from you at the park while everyone else’s happily comes back?

Don't worry. The reality is, there's probably not a dog owner alive who hasn't struggled with their dog 'throwing a deaf un' from time to time. That is, the dog who just seems incapable of listening to you when distracted or hyped up.

The basics of dog obedience training and teaching your dog to sit, stay and come all require your dog to actually listen to you. It's all very well having a dog who'll listen sometimes, but until we have attained a consistent response in all scenarios when never truly claim to own a fully trained dog.

In our special report: Why Does My Dog Ignore Me? you will learn:

  • The most overused word in the dog owner's vocabulary
  • Why noise is the enemy when trying to get a positive response EVERY time
  • Why you might be praising your dog TOO much

To fully understand why dogs ignore their owners, we must accept that it is, nearly 100% of the time, attributable to 'white noise'. Owners speaking too much, using too many different words or simply using the right word without reinforcement.

    My mom brought home a new family dog. She is an English Springer Spaniel, my mom has always been the one to feed, bathe, brush the dog. But when my mom just wants to cuddle our dog will not go to her and will actually turn and cuddle with another family member. I know our dog loves her, she watches her every move. My mom is frustrated who is retired and with the dog 24/7. Maybe they spend too much time together?? Help
