They may not understand what you are asking, so give them a few seconds to let them figure it out, if they don't, then repeat the command. Have one person work with your dog at a time. Too many people shouting commands will also be very confusing and aggravating for your dog. One handler is one command. Your pet may struggle with grasping certain commands or might go through a stubborn streak. It may take as long as a year before your dog is the wonderful companion you want him to be.
