YouTube Description

In this video you will learn the basic concepts on how to train your dog to fit perfectly into your particular life style. Please refer to my other videos for help regarding specific training situations. You can find the videos organized more clearly on my website: www.dogmantics.com Remember you are training your dog 100% of the time! Every interaction you have with your dog is training them something. So you have to be conscious of this fact every time you interact with your dog.

    @Hungry2Play your dog is telling you that he is not finding the things that you thought were reinforcement as reinforcing as you thought they were. Try using new treats (real meat or cheese) and teach him to work for a toy or the things that he loves (like sniffing, etc)

    @Caninefan999 I have a video called: “Fading a Lure (while teaching SPIN)” and another one on: “adding a verbal cue” . I dont have one on how to fade the click, or how to go onto a variable schedule yet! Aren’t I terrible?!
    Basically to stop clicking, when your dog is getting the behavior right about 80% ( some like 90%) I will sometimes click, or sometimes say yes and feed, or sometimes say good boy and feed, or sometimes just toss a treat.

    Hi emily
    I just wanted to say how great you and all the other positive trainers are. I am going to use this method when i get a dog. i recently saw an ad for a shock collar thats said to stop dogs barking. it said that it was the most humane way to stop a dog barking. what do they mean? that we, people, are just going to shock our dogs because its a normal thing to do. the comments for the ad werent great either. “my dogs love it” was one. how can they love it if its hurting them?
    bye, wercia

    @kikopup Is cheese okay for dogs? would it be too high in sodium? ?

    Looking fwd to the stop attention seeking behaviours – Kaycee has started barking loudly @ agility class and i reinforced it without thinking by giving her attention to get her to be quiet. I keep give her a kong before she starts for now , but don’t want to have to rely on it. Once she starts barking, i cant just ignore her for the sake of the others. Its v. frustrating. Love these vids – so helpful

    @schweetheartmonkee it is not healthy for dogs or humans, some dogs are intolerant to it. But tiny crumbles of cheese can work wonders. Also you could do something like smear a small amount of cream cheese in a baggie, and put the dogs kibble in there overnight, the next day the kibble will smell ‘cheesey” and most dogs will usually find it highly rewarding

    @wercia55509 well, shock collars have been banned in many parts of Europe as well as Australia for being Inhumane. The only place that really uses them is us here in north america

    @kikopup will do but how do I stop her from sniffing everything? Its kind of hard to walk her since she’s always pulling and sniffing everything then barks at dogs if she sees one. I’ve tried your loose leash walking tactics but I’m probably doing it wrong since its not working

    Hey Your videos are great and you have inspired me to be so much more active with my dog and he loves it but I do have issues! I am terrible at coming up with cues and commands… I am stumped here… do you have any advice?

    Your videos are so great! I love how your dogs are always offering so many behaviors so you just click when they do the thing I want. My Aussie pup knows lots of tricks, but she doesn’t really offer behaviors…she will just sit and wait for me to tell her what to do or lure her! We just have long staring contests when I wait for her to do something. Is there any way I can encourage her to offer behaviors? Thanks!

    Hi Emily, I love your videos. My question: Is there a way to condition/convince my dog that walking near me is better than taking off to chase squirrels? She is a puller and i think the pulling is linked to her prey drive, as she is always on the lookout for squirrels when we walk in the park. Her recall is pretty good as long as there are no squirrels.

    Hello there,

    I would just like to say that your dog training videos are amazing. I have been researching dogs and what care they need for eight years and will be getting a Yorkshire Terrier puppy in summer this year. Your videos have helped me understand the vital communication between humans and dogs, which can become a beautiful friendship if you train your dog correctly. I look foward to seeng more dog training videos in the future.

    Thanks for everything

    Petlover

    Emily, I need a little hint…. my dog is still young (1 years) and I’m using positive reinforcement but there is one thing that happened 1-2 times already and I cannot handle…. If we walking on the street and a cat runs cross, she starts to chase the cat like a rocket. I cannot prevent, call back, or do anything until around 5-10 seconds when she realizes that ran too far and maybe this is not a good idea. How to handle this?

    Love your video channel!
    I have a question: One of my dogs barks at humans and dogs sometimes. I have a sound I use when I want her attention, and I always try to use it before she starts barking, but sometimes She’s faster than me and starts barking, then I make the sound and she stops and looks at me. But now she barks more often because she knows I’m going to make the sound and reward her for looking at me, What should I do?

    I love clicker training!! It feels so much better watching your dog think and learn than forcing it into submission. Roll on Positive Training Revolution!

  27. HI

    Just watched tip of the day “tugging with your dog” Lots of good ideas. Keeping the toy out of site and using it only as a treat is a great idea. Also not letting your dog get overly aggressive is good. Thanks for the advice.
