Training dogs to stay

Training dogs to stay

In an earlier article, I described how to teach your dog to wait for permission before going out an open door. It’s handy to teach a general “Stay” cue, too, so you can park your dog and keep him out of your hair while you check that leak under the sink, or sit on the floor to wrap large birthday presents. This week, how to teach your dog to stay, and how not to wind up backing away from your dog with your hand out and chanting “Stay, stay, stay [...]

Self help dog training

Self help dog training

The correct term for training one s own service dog or one for an immediate member of your family is owner training because the dog is being trained by the owner instead of by a professional trainer or service dog program. Self-training is incorrect, because the dog is not training himself. Dogs start out as service dog candidates or puppy candidates while they are doing socialization and learning core obedience skills. They become service [...]

Your puppy will see everything as a game, so keep him stimulated by changing what he s learning. Do each command for about five minutes and come back to it whenever you can. Practice the commands in lots of different places — in the living room, garden, hall or kitchen, even out on walks — so that he gets used to responding [...]

Cesar Millan training

Cesar Millan training

Let s be real. Cesar Millan has the magic touch. It almost seems wrong to call him just a dog behaviorist or pet trainer because the guy is seriously on another level — and his reputation as the Dog Whisperer is well-earned. Suffice it to say, if Millan is giving you tips on how to whip your dog s bad habits into shape, you d better take his advice to heart. We chatted with Cesar Millan to ask him some of our most pressing dog-training questions [...]

Dog home training

Dog home training

Determine where your dog will be spending most of his time. Because he will be under a lot of stress with the change of environment (from shelter or foster home to your house), he may forget any housebreaking (if any) he’s learned. Often a kitchen will work best for easy clean-up. Dog-proof the area where your pooch will spend most of his time during the first few months. This may mean taping loose electrical cords to baseboards; storing household [...]

Beginner dog training

Dogs, by nature, are pack animals with a well-defined social order. As you and your family become your dog s pack, your new dog will look to you – the leader of the pack – for guidance. Leadership can be established in a firm but friendly manner. Keep in mind that it is unrealistic to expect the dog to abide by the rules of the household without the leader teaching appropriate behavior! Much like people, every dog is different. Some are hyperactive [...]

She never gave up on the companionship that dogs provide, but her love was put to the test when she and her husband took home an energetic eight [...]

The reputation of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. precedes him. That’s not a good thing, either. He has never had the fire of his famous father. He twice has been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for post-fight positive tests, for marijuana and the diuretic Furosemide, respectively. Perhaps most importantly, he hates to train. It’s that latter knock that Chavez is going to try and erase in one fell swoop with his performance Saturday against [...]

By Cesar Millan I hadn’t been living in Los Angeles long when I landed a job washing limos. There was one big perk—the owner had two dogs, and I got to train them in the yard while I cleaned the fleet of cars. Soon after, my boss asked me to train his friends’ dogs, too. One day, however, he called me in and told me I was fired! That was difficult because I really needed the money, but it set me off to find my own place where I could start training [...]

Off leash training for dogs

Often when we want to reward our dogs for a job well done, we deploy a tasty treat or a butt scritch. In this week’s episode, I’ll explain how you can use behaviors as rewards - and how turning your dog loose to go play, for example, can teach him to pay attention to you and stick nearby when he’s off leash.

Best way to train dogs

Best way to train dogs

Understand the value of the command. The “come” is used whenever you want your dog to come to you. This command is potentially life-saving, as it can prevent your dog from running off if he gets loose. Prepare your dog for “come” training. You always want to start training indoors (or in your fenced yard) with low distraction. Attach a 6-foot leash to your dog’s collar so that you have a way to keep his attention and prevent him from running away [...]
