"then go to the dog and give a pop on the leash, then walk him back to the spot and reissue the "down" command and then "pop" downward on the leash and put him into the down position. As for why you apparently should not train your dog in obedience if you'd like him to be in Schutzhund this is a parable. But any one with even a shred of common sense will elude this problem. Feed the dog a top quality dog food and your dog will be fine. Dear Mr Katz : I'm in possession of a four month old female puppy, AmStaff / Boxer ( we think - she used to be a rescue ). She responds well to all coaching, apart from walking and heeling. It isn't a matter of distraction - when I try to train her in this style, she pulls back with all her strength.
I have attempted right away righting her, and continuing the coaching, but she replies as shown just as fast. I have attempted using treats to make her at least walk with me briefly. Instead, you want to simply glue the leash to your belt and keep walking. Now here is where your problem will arise : You have already accidentally taught your dog that if she kicks and screams long enough ( or rolls on her back and throws a fit ). Dog leashes. Then you can teach exercises in any order you wish. To be truthful, the order of basic exercises is basically unimportant. To coach the dog to not run out of the house, when I slam the door I am terrified it is going slam on him too hard and hurt him. How do I'm going about doing it? Do I shut it softly or will he be quick enough to stop? [Adam responses : ] You are thinking too much. It's your job to make certain it's safe for him to leave the property, and he must look to you for the "It's Okay" cue. Ever sit on a soiled chair and ruin a clean pair of slacks? Once it happens to you, you may always check first.
