´╗┐Teach Your Dog To Sit, Down or Stand When You Are Twenty Feet Away Do you deficiency to teach your Dog to ‘Sit’/’Stand’/’Down’ when you are 20 feet or fresh away from your dog? There is a difference between asking a dog to ‘down’ when you are standing succeeding to it or having it ‘stay’, then animated away, waiting for ten seconds and then motile back to deliver a treat – and accomplishing these equivalent behaviors when you are 20 feet away from your dog and asking them to ‘sit’ if they are standing, ‘stand’ if they are sitting or going into a down station if they are sitting or standing.
Most duty initiation cues are given when the hotelkeeper is following to the dog with the exclusion of the place cue.

Historically most of the dog training disciplines that use stretch commands such as department disaster hold used rouse collars to procure the contact they want.

The premise of this scholarship is that the dog is told to do device at a extent and if they ignore the cue then the owner/handler applies an electric shock.
The dog learns to do the behavior to flee or avoid an nasty if not painful stimulus.

There are far additional pleasant ways to teach reach malleability behaviors.

Last Saturday, at The DogSmith Training Center, in one 10 minute session two German Shepherds being handled by their owners had their dogs sitting and ‘downing’ with no victuals lures when they were 6 feet away from their dogs.

Although the name of the behavior was extremely laconic it did present that with headship and a systematic method most maid dog owners can effectively and efficiently teach their internal dogs a lanky standard of grasp obedience.

The spell can be added later.
The behavior was built one footslog at a time.

As the dogs became known with the rules of the disabled and tacit that goodly reinforcement was available to them for obtaining “it right” their enlightenment became faster and faster .
When starting this novitiate with a homely dog with the goal of the dog sitting or ‘downing’ or standing from a distance, the elite behavior criteria on the ladder must be 97% reliable.

The dog must already be able to show the behavior without a fare lure when the hotelkeeper is standing by their gang or in prompt of them.
The behavior should be unbefitting the train of both a spoken and physical cue, not the physical cue created by the lure mechanics but the final flawless product cue.

Example: Goal - To hold your dog go into a ‘down’ level when you are 20 feet away using a said cue ‘down’ or a unworldly worker signal for ’down’ The first behavior criteria is built on the premise that the dog commit already act to a vocal “down” and a naive drudge cue “down” when the hotelkeeper is in an ethical position.

This behavior should moreover obtain a built in duration of 30 seconds and be on a unchain cue of “okay”.
The owner should not keep to lure the dog down with repast in their worker or use their complete device as a vanguard to induce the dog into a ‘down’ position.

The dog should be comfortable sitting for word of 30 seconds on an spell scheme of reinforcement no further than every 10 seconds.

Step 1 Take half a walk away from the dog and ask the dog to ‘down’ using both the menial striking and the oral signal.
As soon as the dog goes ‘down’ Click or chatter ‘Yes’ and stride back to the dog and deliver reinforcement.

The dog should not retain the occasion to procure up and rest the behavior.
The reinforcement should be delivered to the dog in the ‘down’ position.

Repeat Step 1, 5 times The dog should be successful on all five occasions.

If they are not, then the likelihood is that the initial behavior standard is not in place.

Since the dog entrust already react to a vocal “down” and a artless workman cue “down” when the lessor is in an righteous stratum the innkeeper should not keep to lure the dog down with victuals in their labourer or use their absolute article as a prompt.

The dog should be comfortable sitting for name of 30 seconds on an period programme of reinforcement no less than every 10 seconds.

Step 2 Take a finished hike away from the dog and ask the dog to ‘down’ using both the labourer noted and the spoken signal.
As soon as the dog goes ‘down’ Click or chatter ‘Yes’ and walk back to the dog and deliver reinforcement.

The dog should not obtain the situation to obtain up and delay the behavior.
The reinforcement should be delivered to the dog in the ‘down’ position.

Repeat this 5 times Step 3 Take 2 complete steps away from the dog and ask the dog to ‘down’ using both the workman blatant and the vocal signal.
As soon as the dog goes down Click or gossip ‘Yes’ and march back to the dog and deliver reinforcement.

The dog should not hold the juncture to procure up and desist the behavior.
The reinforcement should be delivered to the dog in the down position.

Repeat this 5 times.

Do not motion from this stage until you hold 5 alter behaviors out of 5 attempts.

This is the celebrated trudge and may prove to be the most fatiguing step to procure past.

A span of things may happen.

1.
The dog may be confused, you posses now moved additional away than ever before.

This is a new behavior for the dog.
The dog may try to earn closer to you back into the usual station the dog is in when being asked to ‘down.

’ 2.
At this stage you may obtain to reintroduce a additional exaggerated physical cue to encourage the dog to go ‘down.

’ Start off by unbiased bending at the waist and using your labourer to backing impel the dog into a ‘down’ position.

This govern can be faded latter on.

3.
If you posses to use a absolute physical cue, your thing bending over and knees bending over to earn the dog to delete into the ‘down,’ the dog may pop immodest mental there is sustenance in your hand.

Be persistent, the dog entrust “get it.

” Use a convivial upbeat voice to nurse the dog into position.

4.
If you cannot halt the dog coming towards you then go back and find a middle criteria Such as one and a half steps away from the dog.
When you are comfortably action back a stride at a time, doing sets of five behaviors at each step, you should venture on fading all the prompts that you had to reintroduce at Step 3 when you area a stretch from your dog of 6 steps.

You consign own to repeat this measure for each new grasp behavior you teach.
When you own some insoluble extent behaviors for ‘sit’/’down’ and ‘stand’ then you can activity on having the dog boss between behaviors with you at a distance.

Do not expect that if you can obtain your dog ‘down’ from ten feet reliably that you cede then at ten feet be able to put the dog back into a ‘sit’ from a ‘down.

’ You commit have to blunt your distance from your dog to prosper this behavior.
