teach your dog to wait at a boundary
Do you have a dog that barrels out doorways or from the crate? What about from the car? This can be a dangerous behavior, but boundary training can help. Anything can be used as a boundary. In this video, KPA faculty member Shelly Brouwer uses a leash on the ground to begin teaching her dog Bert to wait at an interior doorway.
Shelly shapes this behavior by clicking as Bert approaches the boundary and then tossing a treat behind him to set up another repetition. Her goal is to repeat this action until Bert starts to pause deliberately at the boundary. Once Bert begins to pause, Shelly will click that behavior and toss a treat. After rewarding the pauses, she will add a cue, such as "wait," right before Bert offers the pause.
