TEACHING FOUNDATION BEHAVIORS: LOOSE-LEASH WALKING

One of the easiest and most effective ways to train a dog to walk properly on a dog leash is to reward the dog for paying attention to you and for being in the desired position (next to you or close to you) when you are out for a walk. Your dog should remain close enough to you, either by your side or slightly ahead of you, that his leash remains loose, forming a U-shape.

TEACH YOUR DOG TO "LEAVE IT"


Have you ever dropped a pill and scrambled to pick it up before your dog rushed over to scarf it down? Have you been out for a walk and your dog discovered a sharp chicken bone or other dangerous object on the ground? Teaching your dog to “leave it” is establishing an essential behavior that can save you an emergency vet visit!

PUPPY SOCIALIZATION: CHECK IT OUT

Socializing is more than introducing your puppy to lots of people and animals—it’s also about exposing your puppy to everyday objects and experiences. Teaching your puppy to be comfortable in confined spaces, such as a crate, explores an everyday experience and results in a valuable tool for house training and management.

HELP DOGS OVERCOME THE FEAR OF OBJECTS

Is your dog afraid of ordinary objects? Does he freeze or try to run away when he sees a bag blowing in the wind? There are many reasons why dogs may be fearful of certain objects, including exposure to something scary during the developmental period, lack of early socialization, or even a negative experience with the object.

TEACH THE HEEL POSITION


Teaching your dog to heel is not only easy and fun, but it helps encourage your dog to love walking beside you. The heel position is an essential skill for obedience competitions, heelwork to music (canine freestyle), and rally. In this video, KPA CTP Michelle Wieser and her dog Timber demonstrate how to teach the heel position using hand targeting.

The ABCs of Barking

Barking happens for a reason. Sounds obvious, right? It wasn't always obvious, according to applied ethologist Julie Hecht, writing in the spring 2013 issue of The Bark. At the turn of the century, barking was widely thought to be "simply an item on a dog's daily checklist: 'Take a walk, have breakfast, bark.'"
