doe she know the command leave it and heel?
She knows sit and stay.
Thank you. When you put a dog in a sit stay at a time that you know they will get anxious this give their mind time to think about what is making them anxious and that is why this command usually only lasts a few minutes before they are up and excited again. The visual and auditory cues from the other dog is there. What I always suggest is that the dog learn a firm leave it command, and a firm heel command. You continue to give these command as you pass other dogs. This keeps the dogs mind moving forward and not getting stuck on the other dog, but it also allows you to keep moving.
Do you know how to train these two commands?
Okay, I will direct you to sites that will give you step by step instructions for clicker training and to a site with video to show you how clicker training is done so you get some idea of how it works. Train these commands first inside the home where there are no distractions and then move to the yard and then to the driveway and then to the street so the dog learns she must listen to these commands everywhere you give them. Dogs do not always carry over commands from one place to another and this is why we teach them in every situation.
When you train inside and in your yard you can use Cheerios or soft dog treats for command but when you move to the driveway and street you need to up the ante to chicken slivers or hot dog slivers
