Wouldn’t it be nice if you could tell your dog to lie down when the doorbell rings and know your dog will stay there while you grab the box from the UPS man? Or when you’re out walking and three dogs are dragging a disgruntled owner your way, you can step off the sidewalk and tell your dog to sit as you both calmly watch the dogs pass before you continue on your relaxing walk?
Instead, you find yourself desperately trying to hold the dog back as you answer the door. You feel your heart rate go up as you see those dogs coming toward you, knowing that your dog is going to lunge toward them to go say hi. You just don’t think your dog will ever understand how to sit or down and stay there!
Fortunately, with a little bit of thoughtful training, you CAN teach your dog to sit, down, and stay! This step by step training plan will show you exactly how to teach these behaviors to your dog. You will learn how to train your dog to listen to your cues in a variety of situations. You will be taught how to effectively add distractions and increase your dog’s understanding and how to introduce duration in those positions and teach a basic stay on a dog bed or platform. Finally, you will learn how to reduce the treats and incorporate other reinforcers.
