treat training and lots of "good dog" go a long way.
also keep training sessions short. when a dog gets bored it'll stop listening.

yeah I love this, when people "just pick a dog". Oh I went to the pet store and fell in love with him/her. It may be a little late on this one but for future ref, and anyone who is thinking about getting a dog, do your homework and make sure it's the right breed for you.

i'm not even trying to get to the sit/stay/lie down kind of stuff yet...i'll be happy if i can just get him to shit outside. He got up at 7 this morning, i took him out, pee, poop, all that stuff. He walks back into the house and pisses on the floor. Over the course of the next hour and a half, he pisses on the floor 3 more times....but didn't seem to need to go when i took him out in between floor-pisses. At this point, he's actually regressing.

dogs respond best to positive reinforcement for good behavior and negative punishment for bad behavior. a good mix is probably 80/20. you cannot train a dog not to dig in the yard by giving them treats when they don't dig in the yard (they won't understand why) so some punishment for bad behavior is necessary. it might seem mean, but it's the only thing that will work sometimes, and in any event you don't have to hurt them--just apply some kind of uncomfortable stimulus that is relieved when the bad behavior stops... that could include a loud stern yell or a forceful tug at their leash--which isn't really a big head. if you overdo it the dog might become overly aggressive, which is why it's best to balance a little punishment with a lot of reinforcement.
