Simple way to train a dog to sit

How to train your difficult dog to sit:

A trait we share with dogs is the opposition reflex. If I gave you a shove to your right shoulder, what would happen? Your left leg would stiffen up to resist my effort to push you over. That’s the opposition reflex. When you push hard on his rear, the reflex is strongly stimulated, PLUS you have the dog’s own will involved. I’d suggest using high value treats to lure him into the sit. Move the treat over the dog’s head and backward eventually his rear will go down. If you need to add a little pressure to it you can scoop your hand under his hind legs and push behind his knees to sit him that way. But with his dominance and slight fear aggression, I’d use the treat method if at all possible.

* Reward all of the free sits. Notice and Mark the free behavior.
*During feeding time stand with the food bowl, do not say anything just stand there with the bowl and wait for the sit.

Dog Pool Safety

Dogs require supervision in the pool area at all times.

Falling in a pool could be a disaster for a dog who has not been taught how to get out.

For a safe and graceful lifesaving exit practice the following:

A.    We want the dog reaching the steps with a great celebration! So first gently carry your dog into the pool, show him how to locate the steps, reward and praise when your dog does find the steps. Once your dog is finding the steps 90% of the time, move on to exercise B.

B.    Swim a lap or two around the parameter of the pool with your dog, end with a jubilant exit at the stairs. Some water loving dogs may not want to get out, but all dogs need to be trained on how to properly exit a pool.

C.    Teach the dog to reach the steps from anywhere in the pool. Once the dog knows where the steps are this will help eliminate panic if the dog every falls into or is knocked into the pool by other dogs.

*If your dog is attending daycare where there is a pool, request this training be done before allowing your dog pool playtime.

Dog’s are not natural swimmers, use common sense. Always start swimming with your dog in a shallow area, never just toss your dog into the deep end as an introduction to swimming.

Always show your dog how to climb back into a boat, or reach the shore when swimming in lakes, rivers, etc. If your dog is not a strong swimmer, a doggy flotation device will be required for your dog’s safety.

Chlorine levels in pools should not be ingested by the dog, so always have a fresh bowl of water near by.

Coming When Called

Are you on constant watch of an open front door or yard gate like a hawk when the dog is nearby lest Fluffy make a break for it and fail to return?

If your dog cannot be depended upon to instantly return to your side when you call him, you will either be stuck keeping him on a very short leash, or risk losing him to a host of dangers ranging from heavy traffic to wild animals to just plain getting lost.

Your dog learns a negative lesson if, after you’ve called him and he just sits there or trots off, you start chasing him around the yard. Wanting to throttle him when you finally catch him is a perfectly understandable human reaction. FIGHT IT OFF! Unfortunately, acting on these impulses will set you back even farther — your dog will start to fear you, particularly when you’re angry, and will try to put even more distance between you and him in the future.

This may sound drastic, but remember that running away, or not coming when called, can result in serious injury or death to your pet. Untrained dogs are an endangered species. Just ask your humane society how many dogs are euthanized for behavior problems or are strays with no one to adopt them. If we are to hold our dogs responsible for their actions, we must be aware of what part we play in influencing their behavior as well.

Having a dog who comes immediately when you call him is sometimes a happy accident of nature. More often, it’s the product of lengthy training, repetition and rewards.

April 18th Sunland Acres Pet Boarding and Camp is offering a 2 week recall class. In two weeks time with these 2 hour lessons and minimal practice at home you can finally rest easy knowing that your dog will come when called. Fee $40 register for class on line at Far Fetched Tales | Dog Training RECALL CLASS- Fruit Cove.
