“What’s with all of this baby talk when I sit down?” That is exactly what your dog is asking when you are teaching them tricks. They don’t know what you’re saying, but this high-pitched sentence becomes the phrase of their lives: “Good doggy!” None of us would want to hear something like that from our parents. Why do it do your dog? ‘Good doggy’ doesn’t even imply what the dog is doing right. It most likely just annoys them. (Which is why they haven’t been jumping up on your lap lately) Find an easier way to train your dog other than hearing yourself talk. You should use the dog clicker training method.
