Historically most of the dog novitiate disciplines that use span commands such as state tragedy keep used shock collars to earn the results they want.
The premise of this letters is that the dog is told to do entity at a grasp and if they ignore the cue then the owner/handler applies an electric shock. The dog learns to do the behavior to flee or flee an revolting if not painful stimulus.
There are far supplementary pleasant ways to teach reach respect 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 fare lures when they were 6 feet away from their dogs.
Although the spell of the behavior was extremely economical it did express that with rule and a systematic way most trained dog owners can effectively and efficiently teach their maid dogs a colossal standard of stretch obedience.
The title can be added later.
The behavior was built one parade at a time.
As the dogs became close with the rules of the halting and implied that sizeable reinforcement was available to them for recipience “it right” their knowledge became faster and faster .
When starting this probation with a private dog with the goal of the dog sitting or ‘downing’ or standing from a distance, the peak 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 host is standing by their squad or in bob of them. The behavior should be under the master of both a oral and physical cue, not the physical cue created by the lure mechanics but the second absolute product cue.
Goal - To have your dog go into a ‘down’ status when you are 20 feet away using a vocal cue ‘down’ or a ingenuous hand clear for ’down’
The boon behavior criteria is built on the premise that the dog commit already cope to a uttered “down” and a childlike navvy cue “down” when the innkeeper is in an righteous position.
This behavior should besides retain a built in interval of 30 seconds and be on a unshackle cue of “okay”. The hotelier should not own to lure the dog down with nosh in their drudge or use their entire body as a model to impel the dog into a ‘down’ position.
The dog should be comfortable sitting for expression of 30 seconds on an period diary of reinforcement no additional than every 10 seconds.
Take half a hike away from the dog and ask the dog to ‘down’ using both the drudge marked and the oral signal.
As soon as the dog goes ‘down’ Click or speak ‘Yes’ and hike back to the dog and deliver reinforcement.
The dog should not retain the point to secure up and pause 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 measure is not in place.
Since the dog bequeath already behave to a said “down” and a artless worker cue “down” when the hotelier is in an good status the host should not hold to lure the dog down with repast in their navvy or use their finished entity as a prompt.
The dog should be comfortable sitting for name of 30 seconds on an interval programme of reinforcement no less than every 10 seconds.
Take a entire stride away from the dog and ask the dog to ‘down’ using both the navvy pronounced and the oral signal.
As soon as the dog goes ‘down’ Click or chat ‘Yes’ and tread back to the dog and deliver reinforcement.
The dog should not obtain the situation to get up and break the behavior. The reinforcement should be delivered to the dog in the ‘down’ position.
Repeat this 5 times

The dog should not obtain the time to get up and halt the behavior. The reinforcement should be delivered to the dog in the down position.
Repeat this 5 times.
Do not motility from this stage until you hold 5 revise behaviors out of 5 attempts.
This is the celebrated footslog and may prove to be the most laborious step to gain past.
A pair of things may happen.
1. The dog may be confused, you posses now moved more away than ever before.
This is a new behavior for the dog. The dog may try to attain closer to you back into the general status the dog is in when being asked to ‘down.
2. At this stage you may retain to reintroduce a fresh exaggerated physical cue to nurture the dog to go ‘down.
’ Start off by just bending at the waist and using your navvy to aid cause the dog into a ‘down’ position.
This prompt can be faded hindmost on.
3. If you hold to use a absolute physical cue, your article bending over and knees bending over to procure the dog to except into the ‘down,’ the dog may pop shameless thinking there is repast in your hand.
Be persistent, the dog commit “get it.
” Use a jolly upbeat voice to treat the dog into position.
4. If you cannot discontinue 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 motion back a tread at a time, doing sets of five behaviors at each step, you should assignment on fading all the prompts that you had to reintroduce at Step 3 when you span a extent from your dog of 6 steps.
You bequeath posses to cite this benchmark for each new extent behavior you teach. When you have some insoluble spread behaviors for ‘sit’/’down’ and ‘stand’ then you can venture on having the dog doorknob between behaviors with you at a distance.
