Some dog breeds are harder to train than others. Usually this is because of the traits the dog has which they were bred for. For example, hunting dogs are typically focused on hunting. When following a scent, hunting dogs will not be distracted. So if you then try to train a hunting dog while they’re in the act of doing what they do best, you’ll have a very tough time. Another example could be high energy dogs who are also be difficult to train. Obviously if a dog is more interested in running around than listening to you, you’ve got a challenge on your hands. Additionally, larger and more aggressively bred dogs are hard to train. Some dogs assert dominance more than others and those are not the easiest to control.
Whatever the case may be, all dogs can in fact be trained. You just have to take the necessary steps to establish trust, patience, and eventually win over your dog so that you have the best relationship possible. But like we said, some are much much easier than others.
