I quite often read or hear a new puppy owner say
“My ‘sit’ command is not working!”
Or, “My puppy doesn’t listen when I say ‘come’”
Usually in reference to a tiny little fluff ball, that has been in their home for three days.
If you are confused because your commands are not working, you are not alone.
Many new Labrador puppy owners get frustrated because it appears that their puppy is effectively ignoring them.
