In this video we are teaching Violet that being in the crate is not scary, in fact it's very fun. It is our job as humans to teach our dogs crates are a safe place to be.
In this video we are focusing on helping Odin feel comfortable with wearing his harness. We are breaking it down step by step for you!
The up down game is an exercise to teach your dog how to give eye contact on cue. This is a great behaviour to help your dog focus on you
Sometimes on walks with your dog you just have to get away from something, perhaps another dog. We practice taking uturns when there are no triggers around. Now when there are triggers around my dog knows how to uturn and that turning with me earns him a reward.
Engage and Disengage is an exercise we use for dogs who react to things in their environment. We allow our dog to look at the trigger from a distance where he won't react. We ask our dog to look back at us and they he gets a reward! We are teaching our dogs that when they look at a trigger it is more rewarding to check in with us then to react.
