I want to add "speak" and "quiet" to Eddy's list of tricks. How? Any advice? I don't want him to just come and bark at me and expect treats, thus I plan on teaching him that being "quiet" will be rewarded with more treats. Speaking will be an easy one, silencing him should be difficult, right?
Also, he isn't much of a barker anyways - how fortunate! So should I not even teach him these commands, in case I accidently turn him into a barker?! He knows "roll over", "sit", "down", "crawl", "shake", and "back"(away).
I'm just afraid of even starting this... and where do I start?
