I do not consider this an important in training (like sit, stay, come, leave it) but I have problems with this with both Bruno and Tony. Bruno would never give paw. I think he has super sensitive paws and sometimes keeps paws folded under when sleeping. Since it's not important, I never insisted. Tony, on the other hand, immediately picked up on "give paw"....too much. Whenever he wants my attention, there's the paw scratching at me. How do I tell him to give paw only when asked. Now I wish I never taught him that.
