Using Corrections in Dog Training : Using Leashes to Correct a Dog

The leash is your correction connection. This is a phrase coined by myself at Doggy Steps Dog Training to instill to the customer how important the leash can be in letting your dog know that you’re the boss. When used appropriately, you can use your leash for corrections to stimulate the dog’s brain to get him out of any incessant behavior. With my dog Kugel, let’s just say, for example, I’m on a walk and he’s about to either pick something up or sniff something that I don’t want him…

Now we’re going to do roll over. The progression with roll over is you need to get them in to a sit and get them down. Treat them in the down positions, until they’re comfortable there. Once you feel that they’re comfortable there, you can start taking them on to their side and start treating them there. You want to take this slowly because not every dog likes to roll over on to it’s back. As he gets comfortable here I’m going to start bringing the treat towards his rear…

Dog Training : How to Train a Blind Dog

When you’re working with a blind dog, it’s very much the same as working with a seeing dog because you can still use your voice to give a command. You can mark the behaviors, you can see the behaviors that your dog is doing, and reward at the proper time. Again, a reward is something that your dog finds motivating to do that behavior. Most dogs find treats rewarding. Lady here will work for anything, so a regular dry treat will work for her. But your dog might be more…
