If you are looking to teach your dog commands in another language such as Italian, it should be an easy transition. Training your dog with Italian commands isn't much different than training in English, but it will take a little work, especially if she's used to listening for English words.
If you are starting from scratch with a new puppy, you will teach her Italian commands the same way you would teach her in English. You might need to do a little studying beforehand if Italian isn't your first language to learn which terms you want to use as commands. If you take a little time and go step by step, teaching your dog Italian commands won't be too much harder than teaching her in English.
Below you'll find a few different methods for teaching your dog Italian commands for any stage she might be in. Check them out and pick the one that will work best for you. With lots of consistency, your dog will be "fluent" in Italian and you'll have learned something new too.
She bites and/or chews on EVERYTHING.. she has toys in every room and every where she plays and we try to redirect her but it does not matter if he only wants to chew on our hands or our feet or the back of our calves, and as soon as we look away it is our furniture or our garbage.
Hello, Bella sounds like a lovely mix. The Heeler part of her brings a requirement of plenty of exercise daily - and may explain the biting of the calves (she could've trying to herd you). I would work on the Leave It Method, which is explained very well here: https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-shih-tzu-puppy-to-not-bite. The Leave It command will come in handy for many instances, whether it be chewing on everything or biting. Practice the Leave It Method every time she bites or chews. Be consistent and she'll soon learn what the command means. As well, take her for daily walks (a couple of times a day) for at least 30 minutes each time and if you can get her to a fenced in dog park where she can run and burn off steam, that is ideal. As for toys, make sure that she has some interactive toys, such as an interactive feeder. Feed her half of her meal in her bowl, and the other half in the feeder to keep her busy for a while. Start obedience training her, too. Instruction with a trainer is best as it gives Bella socialization as well.
