I have a 8 month year old named Leyla. She knows basic commands like sit and speak but I have to repeat myself over and over. I would like to know when the best time to really sit down and start working with her. If ya'll could help me out I would really appreciate it.

Amelia Your setting out on a great and frustrating journey. First of all, Heelers are about the most hard headed critters ever,born Brain damaged and deaf. They are trainable,They are loyal to a fault "TO ONE PERSON" of Their choice and are endowed with feelings that can be hurt easier than any other Dog I know of,realy a paradox. They make a realy good Stock Dog "IF YOU CAN CONTROL EM".

I would not recomend one as a City Pet,They are working Dogs and for sure need to live outdoors. Also, I doubt there is a breed as filthy as a Heeler,the things They eat and drink will real make Your belly do a flip flop.

For My part I Love'em but I have strange tastes I guess.

we adopted a 2 year old heeler, and live in the city, in a condo.

she's doing great.

my significant other and i both trained her, and she listens to the both of us. when we have guests over, we teach them how to talk to a cattle dog and she listens to them.

maybe we're just lucky, but things are working out great.

she does eat a lot of doggy and goose poop though!!!

;)

Sorry I forgot that part........Your already away late which means You'll have to work a lot harder. Sorry but ay 8 Months I'd guess You'll have a lot of "UN-training to do.
Good luck
