Avoiding Conflict, What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #135

– Hey everybody, how are you? Jeff Gellman with Solid K9 Training with my What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day, tip number 135 This past weekend seminar, beautiful, it was in Long Island

One of the attendees there was asking a question because the behaviorist that they were working with recommended it, but it obviously wasn't working, was when anybody walks into the room with a dog the dog barks like crazy so they were recommended that, instead, have the dog out of the room, have people sitting down, and then bring the down in the room and everyone should stay sitting Unfortunately, number one that's not practical to do and obviously it doesn't work and there's no effing way that people should have to be sitting down when the dog comes in the room If we can't train and rehab the dog, first of all it didn't work anyway, if we can't train and rehab the dog then the dog shouldn't be in the room at all The dog stays out of the damn room and let your guests enjoy your company That's why they're there

But having everybody, like, choreograph move around is not gonna happen So what do you do is in order to stop the reactivity, you do that through a punisher and your dog should probably role play that many times on a leash Have your dog on a leash, have your dog, you know, existing around people, if your dog barks at people you would correct that You can absolutely, though, have people not reaching out and petting your dog, you can have minimal interaction or no interaction, but getting your dog to exist around people is fine Also you can have your dog in place, teach your dog to be in place and just watch the world go by

That's also really, really important to do But this concept of avoiding all conflict with your dog, which is a huge training methodology of never have any conflict with your dog, keep your dog out of every situation that it doesn't like, that's the answer, but that is not the answer The answer is no, you're gonna have to learn to deal with the stuff that happens on a day-to-day basis in the world We're gonna stop accommodating you for all your little quirks You'd be surprised what you can help a dog with when you have that mentality and you work through it

So don't do this whole avoidance thing, let's face, let's run into it, pretty much almost head on, teach the dog what the level of expectation is Jeff Gellman Solid K9 Training, madly in love with you, I'll talk to you tomorrow, bye
