Dog training bloomington il

A dog owner is under strict instructions to make sure that his or her pet dog is trained and socialized so that he or she does not do the things that they are normally warned about. For example, your pooch may be under strict instruction not to play with food or with another animal, or that dog food and his toothbrush may not be handled by an animal or person that can't pass their own canine training.

Pet owners are also told to teach their animals to obey when an individual is talking to them or when it is time for them to go out to play in the yard, as a dog that is given these extra instructions could have a number of advantages as a family pet. Dog training in Bloomington. I am wondering if anyone can tell me if my dog has a real problem or is it just an act.

The article is not from the viewpoint of dog training expert and a dog owner, but I think it is still an interesting read. The author does a very good job of describing his dog's behavior and the things that his dog may or may not do, based on the experiences he had with the dog.

My dog is a Lab. He can be fine, when he is with his family and he is well trained. If he is with other dogs, it depends on his owner's attitude. I have to say that if you keep your dog on a leash at all times, he will respect that. You do have a bigger responsibility in owning a dog. There are a few things you need to know and train properly so that your dog will respect your authority, whether it be you or your neighbor.

For example, he knows that if he is off leash in my yard, he is very likely to get some treats, which is a positive reinforcement for the behavior of running through a yard. However, it is not a positive reinforcement to walk up and down my porch (something I did to this dog). He knows if he goes up on the porch, he gets a punishment. If the dog runs through the neighbor's yard, the same thing goes. He is trained to be careful, but does not fear their dogs.

My biggest problem is when he is off leash in public. Everyone is coming over and giving him treats for being so well-behaved. I do not understand the point of this at all. But, if your neighbors allow this, then they are the responsible ones. Do not reward your dog for behaving badly. It is not appropriate to praise him for things that he should not do.

I have a 5 year old Lab who is pretty much always on a loose leash when people are around. Not all the time. But often enough for him to feel entitled to walk off leash. It seems like he knows he can just take off whenever he wants. I mean it's no big deal. If a dog goes that distance, there's no way it is going to end badly. But, it's a good question.

In all fairness, the first time he did that it was not all his fault. We were in someone else's yard with their dog and he started barking at them and would not stop. We told him not to, but he just did it anyway and we had to leash him. I honestly thought he had not been trained well enough to know that we told him not to do that, but since then, I have taken him to lots of obedience classes and he has learned a lot. That's why I'm bringing this up to ask about it now. If we were to allow him to run off leash whenever he wants, we don't know if he would do that again or not. We don't want to risk him getting away from us when we're out walking.

In all fairness, the first time he did that it was not all his fault. We were in someone else's yard with their dog and he started barking at them and would not stop. We told him not to, but he just did it anyway and we had to leash him. It was very surprising and the whole thing was not a good learning experience for him.

Last night he did it again. While it's not the same situation, he came back to us with a tail wagging as big as you can imagine. And my husband was in full-on, "I'll be right back, sorry about this" mode. Again, it was a good learning experience for him.

Now we are wondering, how can we help him realize that if he behaves himself, no one is going to call him out on it? Especially us. He has gotten along with us perfectly for several years, so this kind of thing is new to us. It seems a lot of leash-less dogs are very spoiled and he is no exception.

This is why we wanted to know more about the issue of the owner not being aware. I mean, in the heat of the moment it is not uncommon for dogs to behave badly and if they're going to learn anything about being responsible it is best to be honest with them.

Re: Leash free dog's owner not aware

It's not an excuse. It's just how things are in the majority of cases. Leash your dog, you take responsibility.

It's easy to say "It was an accident" and to chalk it up to the fact that "It was someone else's dog" but that doesn't mean it wasn't your responsibility.

Dogs don't tend to make good pets if they are abused by someone else's dog or people because their owner thinks "it's not their dog." But they do make good pets if the owner knows it's their responsibility and will stand up to the dog when it misbehaves. Dogs who are abused by a dog are always going to be afraid of other dogs. They are naturally going to see other dogs as potential attackers and will treat other dogs with caution.

People don't tend to make good owners if they allow their dog to be abused by another dog. It is natural
