It is important to note that dogs are not always responsive to people. Dogs tend to be more responsive to their owners than they are other people.
This can be due to the fact that the dog has a close relationship with the owner and they have been raised together. It could also be because the owner has been more consistent with training and providing rewards for good behavior.
