Paw Targeting – how to teach tricks dog training clicker training

This video is a how to video on how to teach your dog to target an object with his front paws. This is not only a great game to teach your puppy or dog how to learn to learn, but it is the foundation for many behaviors and tricks. Tricks with this foundation include- wave, shake , high five, standing up, hands up, close the door, cop cop, say your prayers, descrimination, freestyle foot work and more. Check out zsianz1 ‘s video on how to teach a high five using this technique! www.youtube.com Take care with large breed dogs or dogs who have sharp toe nails as you can get slapped. Perhaps teach shake down the line when you have more experience as a trainer so that your large dog doesnt learn to paw at you as their favorite behavior. The great thing about the technique that I am using is that the dog isnt learning to paw at your skin, but at an object, so you can get that on stimulus control before it is just your arm (for very large and powerful dog breeds). You can also click them fore being gentle before you switch to using just your hand for shake.

Cat Skills Training Video (Pet Exercise/Workout for Fat Felines)

For those of you who think cat’s aren’t obedient pets, here’s Boomer and I doing box-jumps and muscle-ups. This is no more “just jumping” as running is “just running”. It’s “rising up to the challenge”. It’s “the thrill of the fight”… It’s making Boomer a better, fitter, healthier, more youthful cat. Not to mention he’s getting JACKED! Hard to tell by the angle, but the jumps are about 4-5 feet, and the last few are about 6-7. It is one of my silly, little dreams to one day get Boomer in a commercial. He can do all sorts of cool stuff, like play fetch, catch, reply (meow), sing (meeeeeooooowww), reach into bags of treats and eat them with his bare paws, and more. If you or someone you know shoots pet commercials, or photo-shoots, please consider Boomer the Cat. Ummm, Headshots? www.facebook.com

Dog Training Tutorial: Holding Objects & Clean Up!

As requested by many people, in this video I demonstrate the steps in teaching a dog to hold an object by shaping the behavior. Also, you can build on this and teach them to put their toys away in a basket. The trick is to break the task down into smaller components and train each of those independently to success. Realizing that a complex behavior chain such as this can take several training sessions spread out over a period of days allows us to be patient & teach amazing things through positive reinforcement. The best part about this is that we create a dog that enjoys learning, and figures out on his/her own what we are trying to teach.

Dog Training Tutorial- HOUSETRAINING

August 29, 2012 by  
Filed under Training Dogs

House-training is often the first thing most dogs need to learn as they become part of a new family. Since this is something I have been getting numerous requests for – I decided to do a video on it. There is some additional information on housetraining (tips) that I did not include in the video which is available on my Facebook page under the discussions section. LINKS ——— FACEBOOK: bit.ly TWITTER: bit.ly WEBSITE: www.trainingpositive.com EMAIL: tab@traningpositive.com ***NOTE*** All this information assumes that the dog in question is in good health and not suffering from any sickness/disease. Sometimes lack of bladder and bowel control is a result of ill health and if you suspect that this might be the case with your dog, please immediately consult your vet to rule out any such possibility. It is also assumed that the dog is not struggling with fear-based elimination. As is often the case with some dogs, the goal in these instances would be to tackle the issue of fear/anxiety in addition to following all the advice given in the video. Unfortunately, the details in these situations are specific and unique to the dog – so the best approach is to contact a professional dog trainer who uses positive reinforcement only, to assess and determine the most appropriate course of action.

Secret dog training tip- teaching ‘back up’ for leash walking

August 28, 2012 by

This is another cool Dogmantics Dog Training Tip on how to teach your dog to walk next to you on a loose leash. If you are consistent with this behavior, you can actually make pressure on the leash a CUE for the dog to back up and they learn to walk on a loose leash as a default. =—- Teaching a dog to back up into the heel position on walks is helpful for many reasons. 1- If you have more than one dog on a walk sometimes it can be hard to turn around and go the other way if both dogs are ahead of you. Teaching them to back into the heel position allows you to move freely 2- If you train your dog that when he reaches the end of the leash the only way he can move forwards again is to back up, he will consciously start avoiding hitting the end of the leash. This means- No more pulling on leash. 3- This is a great impulse control exercise based on the Premack Principle. In order to move forwards you must first move backwards. —- Loose leash walking obedience without force how to train a dog without using punishment clicker training dog training walking in heel how to teach backing up on leash How to train a puppy to walk next to you .
