How do you get them to listen and have concern for where they are going or what they are plowing through? I used treats and praise to get my dog to listen. Start off trying to teach him/her a few commands. Personally I feel that 'sit' is the easiest to teach. Put the treat in front of their nose and once they've smelled it slowly put it over there head and they'll sit. Once they've taken it, rub their body (not their head) and say "good boy". Repeat this until they've got it down.
