So, it will only learn a thing or be ready for training only if it wishes to do so. Their terms are the thing to interact wih=th their owners, in short. It requires a lot of time and patience to train this breed. Arrogance and harsh training are very rarely successful with Shiba Inu; else, they don’t like the training person and never learn things from them. They get more stubborn and wild, but once you come up with your leadership spirit and make it do things, then it may listen to you, look up to you as the master, and respect you. But for this, you have to be loving, caring, strong and require a lot of calmness and patience.
One has to make Shiba Inu feel comfortable and safe around them to make them less aggressive and obey yourself. The dominating and harsh training can lead to negative results or impacts on the dog or yourself as they can to respond wildly in their defense.
