The dog is taught to ‘sit’ in fairly undemanding conditions (a quiet back yard for example) then taken into much more distracting and tempting conditions where his obedience is deliberately ‘challenged’.
I have a 3 yr old choc lab who is very well behaved normally, however in the last 2 weeks or so he has started mounting other dogs when off lead. His recall is good but hardly ever stops humping the dogs when called off. He has never done this before, can it be a sudden new behaviour or maybe a medical condition causing comment partir sa compagnie ( ive heard it could sometimes be from urinary tract infection?) Some advice would be great as my vets aren’t brilliant.
We would like to thank Morgan for the fun walks and great training she’s had with Archer. Her hard work has helped us raise a more obedient and sociable dog. We especially appreciate her notes. We look forward to those updates—they helps us keep track of progress in his training and know what we should work on at home.
RD is amazing! She has a gift with dogs and the people who love them. We have a rescue dog that goes crazy whenever she sees other dogs and I thought we would have to keep this dog secluded in our y…ard for the rest of our lives but RD has taught us that we can manage and tame this reactivity.
Keep in mind that ditching the “alpha dog” concept doesn’t mean you have to let your dog do anything she likes. It’s fine to be the boss and make the rules-but you can do that without unnecessary conflict. Be a benevolent boss, not a bully. Good leadership isn’t about dominance and power struggles. It’s about controlling your dog’s behavior by controlling her access to things she wants. YOU have the opposable thumbs that open cans of dog food, turn doorknobs and throw tennis balls! Use them to your best advantage. If your dog wants to go out, ask her to sit before you open the door. When she wants dinner, ask her to lie down to earn it. Does she want to go for a walk? If she’s jumping up on you with excitement, wait calmly until she sits. Then clip on the leash and take your walk. Your dog will happily work for everything she loves in life. She can learn to do what you want in order to earn what she wants.
We teach people to become Certified Dog Trainers and dogs to be a loving member of the family. Learn more about how you can become a Dog Trainer and get certified by the best at the Anthony Jerone’s Canine Education Academy.
Every dog has a different personality and temperament—our programs are specialized to fit you and your dog’s individual needs with private one-on-one training sessions in your home. This highly effective approach allows us to address problems directly in your dog’s own environment where behavior problems often occur or begin, catching inconsistencies early in the training process. You will not only learn how to train your dog, but also how your dog learns and thinks.
Dogs that are uncomfortable around other dogs, people or new environments tend act fearful, shy or reactive can take a lot of work to socialize. That why I developed a specialized three day boot camp for dogs. –>
Someone, please help me. My beautiful, golden, 1 year old lab girl eats rocks. WHAT?? you say ? Really?? Not possible – well, true….she eats rocks. I am terrified that she will die. We live in rural PA on acres of land and she has always had free run. All of a sudden , this is a new thing. Now, I’ve put a soft muzzle on her when she goes out. This is killing me. Can someone give me ANY advice or give me a better idea or tell me how to train her not to do this????
Please note all dogs must be dog and human friendly, therefore your place on the workshop cannot be confirmed until after a conversation with one of our coaches – we will contact you once we receive your booking request, thank you!
