Labrador Training Tips

This method stops your dog's mistaken thinking. It only needs a few moments to permanently cancel or delete a behavior. Correcting it takes the entire lifetime of your dog.So you can make your choice to solve behavior problems permanently in a few moments, or get the satisfaction of correcting your dogs behavior problems each time they occur, permanently.

When you run out of energy on whining, nagging, and arguing, just go back to the beginning and read this manual again, and change your view. Change is difficult but worthwhile.

So lets go back to the prior example using the other room command. As you prepare to exit the room after having shown him the meaning of your request, create a sound just before your dog reaches the exit or doorway. As always, instantly praise him. Continue to exit the room yourself, and if he continues to try to exit, create the sound behind him, and praise again. If he successfully exits the room against your command, simply repeat the original command go in the other room good boy. Of course, this will be treated as a new request, to be performed according to the progression of events as required.

In other words, you must pay attention to the last instance in which sound was used, and try to insure that in the next instance, the sound comes from the appropriate source, i.e.: if your dog went into the other room on his first request without sound, perhaps strictly as a coincidence, then, after you've tried to correct him from leaving, that instance would require the application of sound with your next request, which in actuality, would be his second request to go in the other room good boy.

To summarize go in the other room, good boy; second request; go in the other ROOM good boy; third request go in the other room, good boy; Suppose he accomplished your command. When he violates the command, your next request to send him back in there would be his fourth request, requiring sound on this command. Here's the rest of the big secret: The events never starts over, but always continues from the last time in which the sound was used. It's important to remember the last occasion in which your dog was given a command.

For Example, hes out in the back yard. You call him in, and he does not respond. So you reach for the can, and repeat your request accompanied with one hard downward shake to make a sound. Your dog will respond this time. Next time he is out in the yard, -even if its the next day, and he does not respond when you ask him to come in, try to recall when it was, that you last needed to re-enforce the command with sound.

You might think, gee, wasn't it just last night, that I asked him to come inside, and I needed to make the sound on my second request for him to come in? Did the can need to be tossed past him. Follow through, and make the right decision. If you cant remember the last instance, don't stress on it.

Simply do your best, and set yourself an appointment to do the Family Pack Leadership exercise when you plan to re-install the conditioned reflex to come. It'll take about ten minutes.
