The secret to a well behaved dog is not long, drawn-out training sessions. It's using your day-to-day life and habits to consistently teach good skills and manners. We talk a lot about manners.
Take a look through the blog and you'll find that many articles are dedicated to just that! That's because a dog with good manners is a joy to live with. Manners will make a huge difference in your life. If your dog lacks them, you'll be frustrated with their daily behaviour. If they have them, you'll notice and appreciate it.
Spending some time thinking about how you'd improve your dog's manners and then finding solutions will be time well spent.
Do you have a dog door crasher
Do you have one of those dogs who races through a door as soon as they see it open? Do you have a dog who tangles you up and even knocks you over trying to get through the door? Maybe your dog rushes out the front door and you have to chase him through the neighbourhood?
This is the exercise for you. Teaching your dog to have manners at the door will alleviate all of these problems. Use high value rewards and keep them on leash so that you can quickly fix any mistakes.
