    Hard to explain in a title - problem is, my sheltie sometimes learns things the first time. Wanted to click train "Gimme a kiss". She was giving kisses, so I took the opportunity and gave the command - she stuck her face close and I thought was going to give me a kiss, and it all went so fast that she actually just put her chin on my shoulder instead, and I was already midway into the click and "Good Girl!" -- So, of course that's the time it sticks for EVER and now "Gimme a kiss" means put your chin on my shoulder. =/ How do I UN-learn it with her now?? Any help, please! Getting this girl to give kisses is usually like pulling teeth and when I do get one, its usually a surprise attack and then only one very quick flick. Any help would be very appreciated! Thanks!

    Like Hanne said, you could just use a different word command like "Kisses" or "smooch". It doesn't necessary need to be those words, just something along that line.

    I recommend, "Keess me, you fool!" said in a Garbo-esque accent.

    I taught Piper to give kisses by first teaching him touch, but I knew someone who'd taught her sheltie kisses and she said she held his face in her hands and brought his nose to hers and said kiss and then treated him. She continued this way until he started doing it himself.
