How to train three dogs?

I have three dogs. One male who is very smart and house broken. He is very inteligent but when he is with my two females he is naughty! My first female is a beagle mix with greman shepard! Weird I know but she looks like a beagle and is adorable se will sit but she like to run away form me when I let her lose. She is a big baby and loves to be petted and seems so good but the second you give her an inch she is gone. My second female is the daughter of my first female. She is very good but will do anything the other two dogs do. Alone they will listen and be good but together they get naughty. When in the house together they snoop and are constnatly running around. My second female love the other two but she like to play but I notices she like to bite them not agressovly but nidges them to play the other two just ignore it but then she barkes at them like she wants them to play. They are in a kennel right now in our back yard and I am wanting to train them so they can be in the house.
I get so frustrated with them when they dont listen I try so hard but obviously I need some training tips so they listen to me. I love to have them all clean and in the house . They do have lots of toys and get treats everyday, they all are very happy . But I just dont know how to train them. I want them to be obedient. Do I jsut take one at a time and train them in the house? But when they get together in the house the wont listen to me. How do I get all three to listen? They are all very smart. My male is not going to be a problem, he always was a house dog, but the girls havent.

    The first thing you need to do is realize that you are the boss (the ‘alpha’ in dog terms) and they are to obey your rules. Check out Cesar Milan’s web site; it should get you started: http://www.dogpsychologycenter.com/

    I would suggest you contact a local dog obedience trainer in your area. Since you have three dogs, it might be a good idea to check out private classes for your dogs, and the trainer will counsel you on which way they prefer to work with your dogs, either with each individual dog, or with all dogs as a group, or some version of both! Individual obedience training is not much more expensive than group training, and it is well worth the extra money in my opinion. It’s good to see that you would like them in the house with you. Good luck!

    Yup, one at a time. Start with the least smart dog and work your way up. Also, try enrolling your furry friend at a local Petsmart or Petco Training Facility if you’re having trouble with training. It really helps! IT REALLY WORKS!!!! By the way, the sooner you get it done, the better!!!!!

    I recommend taking it one at a time! If you live alone thats best, if you have a significant other, kids or even a close friend, you could spend a few minutes (15-30 min) a day having a 3 dog training session! That would be ideal simply because they seem to copy each other and it would be much easier to train them all! Although if you could get one trained very well, give that one treats for behaving in front of the other too and watch how fast the others will copy the behavior, simply to get a treat! I’m working on training 5 dogs by myself right now and its a pain, but they tend to copy whatever the dog getting the treat is doing!
    If that doesn’t work you may want to try a class! they usually have others around that could work with your other 2 dogs while you work with one! GOOD LUCK!
