punisher, What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #141

– Hey everybody, how are you with Jeff Gellman and Solid K9 Training with my What Would Jeff Do? dog training tip for the day Look who's here, tip number 141

We just put a thing up on our Facebook page, Place and Pilates where it's about an hour class and dogs are in place, most of 'em hold for an hour A couple of people are like how did you do that? My dog can only do five seconds, my dog gets really excited anticipating food, so now it's a great time to bring back a place tip Places, go to a dog bed, go to a dog mat, lay down and be calm So when we're training it though, you can train it with food, by the way, we use food for training You can train it with food, you can train it with a clicker, you can use a remote collar, you can use a leash and prong and it's okay obviously, the dog is excited to get there, yes

But at some point for family pet dogs which is what we do, we actually don't want the dogs to be excited which sounds like well, don't you want the dogs to have fun training? Excitement doesn't always mean fun but, in my home the last thing I want is a dog that's aroused Aroused meaning like, ooh what are we doing next? Or oh, I'm excited to go to the beach, or I'm excited to go for a run It's ooh, I went to place and I'm excited for what's next It's I'm going to place and oh I'll be here for awhile So whether I'm placing my dogs for five minutes or I'm placing my dogs for five hours, yes five hours, why? If I go swimming in the morning, go up into my office and do office work, social media work, make phone calls, come down, make lunch, hang out with my family, go back upstairs, do a little bit more office work, they're in place and then we go back outside and then we go swimming again or play chuck it

So, the way you get a dog to do duration work and do duration through distractions is through punishment And if you're not familiar with the word punishment, punishment is not abuse, punishment is actually like, for all the people who talk science, it's actually part of dog training So it's part of the dog training methodology It's fair to give a dog a punisher, if you want to call it a correction to feel better that's fine, we've done in the past, some of us still do Correcting a dog for noncompliance of a known command is fair once the dog knows the command, then it's fair

So you always want to be fair with your punishers because you've already done all of the training so you used all the motivation, you used all the positive stuff to get the dog to do it, now it's time to keep the dog there So when they know stuff, now they're just being proofed, so now you can deliver your punisher So if you don't use a prong collar that's fine, you can use just a leash, just a leash if you want to But obviously, a prong collar, remote collar always makes a better punisher when used for that You can also use it for other things, but just keep in mind that if you want to have a dog there for five hours, at some point you want them to be like, I'm not supposed to get up because I don't want to be corrected, absolutely

If you want to flip that around and be like, oh so the dog holds command 'cause it's afraid? If that's how you want to interpret it, okay I also don't speed because, not that I'm afraid of getting tickets, but I know it's the right thing to do Eventually your dogs just go, I'm just supposed to hang out here, not because I'm worried about being corrected, not because I know I'm going to be getting a reward, but just because I know that that's just part of what I do, right? That's just part of life of the dog So once your dog know a command like place, you would say no and you apply the punisher But you still have to teach the dog what that means as well and you always want to be fair with your dog

Jeff Gellman, Solid K9 Training, I'm madly in love with you, I'll talk to you tomorrow Another sneak peek here, if you don't know who that is that's Tori Smith I'll tag her in the comments below, bye
