How to create a confused dog:
- Be inconsistent all the time, but not always and don't do the same thing more then twice, only once in a while. Surprise your dog with different rules.
- Use more then one command for one behavior. Come, could also be "get here", "now", "this instant".
- Every human in the household should use a different word so the dog really learns better English, faster.
- Don't enforce rules when you are to tired and change them at your convenience.
- Every member of the household should have a different rule for the same behavior.
