Hi everyone,
Advice needed. Whenever we have visitors, Archie would go from one person to the next, whining and high pitch barking for attention. He wants to be patted aaaaaallllll the time. He gets really loud and as you can imagine does not give up. He will stop for a second when he is told but starts again. And that can go on for hours. He might have a little nap and then he is back at it. He is very well trained otherwise, listens straight away with anything else but this. Thanks in advance

I think the only thing you can do is totally ignore until he's quiet - so no looking at him, touching him or shushing him. You'll probably all have a headache for a while, but Stafford are intelligent (if stubborn) dogs and he will catch on.

Thanks Gilly. That’s exactly what we do and it works. But all our visitors give in because they think he’ll stop if they pat him just once. Which obviously is never enough 😂. It’s time to train visitors as well I guess. Thanks again

Training people is harder than training dogs most of the time!

People are much harder to train than dogs!
