Join the club! Mercy has selective hearing also. She ignores commands as well. She will not reliably down on command. One thing my dog trainer told me is if your dog refuses to obey, walk away and say, "Too bad!" I have tried that with Mercy and although she has improved, she still has a long way to go.

I echo what Jodie has said. If the dog doesn't do it the FIRST time you ask, put your hands on him and physically make him do it. I don't mean be rough, I mean physically put him into the position you want. If you stand there and repeat the command or just walk away, or do something to get his attention and repeat it or whatever, all you're teaching the dog is that the first time you tell him something, he has the option of not doing it. If you are consistent about making him do it the first time, every time, guess what, chores get a lot easier because he actually complies!
Perfect example, last year my parents lived with me for about 4 months when they were between selling & buying a house. If they wanted their dog to get up and go outside they would stand there and call him fifty times, he would lay there like a lump on a log. One time my mom even went and got his leash and jingled it to fake him out and the dog got up. Oh brother. That was it. The next time they called their dog and he of course didn't move a muscle, I got up, grabbed him by the collar and escorted him rapidly out the door. The next time he still didn't move until I took a step toward him! The third time, my mom called the dog, he looked at ME then got up and went to the door! LOL After that, guess what, the dog got up and moved when called. Whadda ya know??!!
