When requesting your family to be on board with training, frame the conversation around our dog’s well-being.
Have a family meeting to make sure everyone agrees. It will never work if some family members want to allow the dog on the couch or bed and others don’t. Discuss everyone’s ideas so that each person knows the training rules. That will prevent the dog from getting mixed messages and becoming confused.
You confuse your dog if everyone in the family has different rules. So let everyone have a voice, and be open to compromise.
