Always your idea. Come on leash. Say it only once. Sit (he was a little too nervous with me on first visit). Barking. Stand/Grr/Shake. Determine where it is annoying you and he isn’t giving you focus. Front door. This is a boundary exercise. Always face him. No jumping. Stand/Grr/Shake. Focus on you. Walking inside only first. For the timebeing, balk outsied in the back yard and not in the street. Gentle Walk harness. Use the leash to keep control and focus when the correction isn’t effective that day. Living room manners. Make sure that Pr4ince keeps focus and is calm when people come in outside doors and walk through or sit down in the living room. Dining Table. Keep back from table when eating. (We will work on that next time)

Be sure to praise her once the person is inside and the door is closed. (5) Manage attention seeking behavior. Make sure it is always your idea. (6) Potty. Doing pretty well. Make sure to keep the schedule and manage her water. (7) Tell your friends to ignore her for the first 5 minutes. After thet, they can call her over. They still have to obey your “house rules”.

Initial Issues: Rescue dog, timid — Training Notes: It takes patience so keep it slow. Put the leash on as much as possible so that you can passively control and she will get accustomed to the leash. In the back yard, be out there for a half hour and just hang with her. Scatter feed and have her slowly approach you. Once or twice, give a slight tug on the leash when you can pick it up. Do not make a big deal if she backs off from the tug. Stop and try the next day. Always stand tall and face her. Do the same in the garage. Scatter feed till she approaches and then put some food in bowl. Then, put food in hand. When entering garage, give slight correction sound to keep her away from door. When trying to walk, click leash on in garage and let her go to back door. Then hold the leash and let it slide out your hand as she goes to back door. Then walk to back door with leash. Others should not engage with her just yet. Always call with questions.

Initial Issues: New dog is causing problems. Aggression and not listening by the pack — Training Notes: 1) Barking. Stand/grrr/shake bottle or redirect with the leash until quiet. 2) Jumping. You can step on leash or use correction (stand/grr/shake). 3) Back door. Do not let them bum rush you. Let them out one at a time with last one on leash. 4) Use of Leash. This is to get you focus and as an addition to the standard correction. 5) Play. Always be around to step in and grr/shake to get their attention and to “break it up”. Always try to be proactive to minimize adrenaline buildup. Bring them back inside by stepping on leash and directing with a walk to the door. 6) Office. Use the bottle and stand/grr/shake while facing them when barking in the office. If you have to, direct them out. If you don’t have the ability to do this because of phone calls, put them in another area.

Initial Issues: Potty Training and General Training, “She’s wild” — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash. 2) Walk— Get the Easy Walk Harness to help redirect pulling. Will work on that next time. 3) Barking – Stand and then add your low sound and then physical correction (squirt/shake) to gain focus. 4) Jump – Same as bark. 5) Front Door – Keep back behind boundary you set. Use Stand/Grrr/Squirt to accomplish this. When calm, continue to focus on and face her while you open door. Praise when done. 6) Follow thru door — You always need to go through door first. Do not make it a race. If she goes out first, bring her back, have her sit, you step out first, and then you allow her to join you. 7) Always Your Idea! 8) Use leash as a secondary tool to correct and redirect in order to gain her focus while you are calm and collected. 9) Potty – Check out documentation. Remember to limit water, manage amount of food and meal times, create excitement at start of walk to stimulate potty, and use of powder room as “other place” where she goes to potty when you can’t do anything else about it. 10) Separation Anxiety — a) In crate b) You play with her in crate c) You close door d) You lock crate door e) You move to chair near crate f) You move to far end of room g) You move out of sight h) You make “I am leaving sounds ” with door and door lock i) You leave. Keep it slow & correct slightly as she starts to fail. Don’t rush.

Initial Issues: Alpha dog and hard to control — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash. Go down low and call once. Then tug if necessary. Praise and stand when reaches you. Inside then out. 2) Sit on the leash. Say once and correct if doesn’t sit. Then say again and direct down by pulling back and up slightly on leash and direct rear down and back. Never push on back. 3) Walk in house. On leash, walk, turn, walk, stop, sit. 4) Jumping. If jump, correct with stand/grrr/squirt. You can also redirect withy leash. 5) Front Door: Make boundary where she can not cross when you are at front door. Always face her and correct if she approaches. Once she is stable, slowly open door while you are continuing to face her. Once door is closed, praise her. 6) Digging: Get chicken wire, poop, and sharp gravel. Fill hole until about three or four inches deep. Put down chicken wire, poop, and gravel for several inches. Cover top with soil so it “looks like everything else”. If she starts to dig, redirect with leash towards digging pit. Build a digging pit just like a child’s sand box and put doggie goodies (some buried) in pit. 6) Leash. Have leash on at different times of day. This is your “Plan B” to correct and calmly redirect for your focus and obedience.

Initial Issues: Jumps, nips, barks, some separation anxiety, pulls on leash, food dominance, eats plants, toy dominance, sibling rivalry — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash. 2) Sit on the leash. Help and guide down if needed. 3) No barking. Use the water bottle or chain bottle for that. You can also use the redirection with the leash. 4) No jumping. You can use the same techniques as with the No Bark. Be sure that it they jump on you in the chair, you MUST stand up. 5) Door Manners. This is for both the front door and the balcony door. Always face to maintain dominance and focus. Set a boundary and correct if they cross. When you have finished your activity at the door, be sure to praise. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. If you don’t, you will undermine your ability to gain and maintain their focus and respect. 7) Use the leash as your Plan B. Step on it and redirect back to you, if needed. 8) Food Aggression. Feed separately for only a 30 minute period. Use leash to help control and guide back. You might have to physically separate out of the bedroom, if needed. 9) Separation Anxiety. Our first step is to break the front door bark/wine. You need to correct as you leave the front door while facing them. Quietly wait on other side and correct again if you hear barking. We can ramp this up, if needed.

Initial Issues: Cookie becomes aggressive with other dogs, Riley pulls on the leash. General training. — Training Notes: 1) Practice walking with Easy Walker. Walk just up one house and then back and down one house. Keep by your side and give slight tug when starts to get too far ahead. Stop and change directions to make sure it is your idea and you “are driving”. Extend length of walk when things are going well. Try and minimize external distractions at first. Never push too far. 2) Barking. Use the Stand/Grrr/Squirt or Shake to get focus and stop barking. 3) Jumping. Remember that No Jumping means No Jumping All The Time. Use correction to stop. Be consistent and always praise when they stop. They need to know what is right and wrong. 4) Manage attention seeking behavior. Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss. 5) Use of the leash. You can step on the leash and direct back to you to direct their attention to you in a calm and focused manner. 6) Other Dogs. As we talked, this is probably more protection then true aggression. Make sure that you use the leash and always focus back to you when another dog approaches. Always be aware of your surroundings.

Initial Issues: Not too bad, want help with sit, stay, some, stay with food, general obedience — Training Notes: 1) Front Door. Make sure you are always facing. Define a boundary and get Henry behind the boundary with Body Language, Correction Sound, and Squirt. Open door while you are still facing Henry. Let person in while you are facing Henry and close door. Praise Henry. 2) Going out (Back Door). You face Henry and face him/correction sound/squirt to get him back to your predetermined boundary. Open door while you face him. Slowly step out, always facing him. Close the door. 3) Coming in the Front Door. Make correction sound outside by door. Slowly open door and stick your squirt bottle in slight crack of door to get Henry back. Continue to slowly open door and step inside. Never open the door quickly or too wide. Close the door behind you. 2) Dinner Table. Have two people with squirt bottles ant ends of table. If Henry approaches the table and encroaches on your boundary, one stands, corrects, and squirts to have him retreat behind boundary. 3) Always your idea. 4) Use the leash to passively redirect for respectful focus. 5) Start walking inside with 6 foot leash. Think about the Easy Walk Harness.

Initial Issues: Puppy, just got a few days ago. Pottying — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say it once and give a slight tug. Start from as little as 2 feed and expand the length when she is ready. Don’t rush. 2) Jumping: Use the squirt bottle initially with the Stand/GRRR/Squirt. As soon as she is down and focused on you, praise and move on. 3) You must be the boss so it must always be your idea. Don’t let her to tell you to pet her. It is always what you want to do. (Remember that this does not apply to pottying!) 4) Use the leash as an alternative correction process to get her focus, her respect, and obedience. Step on it if she is running around and she ill look back at your calm and tall leadership body language. Give it a slight tug to get her off the couch or jumping. This is simply your “Plan B”. 5) Potty Training. Be sure to read our documentation to review what we talked about today. Always watch her and monitor her water. Use a log (examples in documentation) to make sure you are properly documenting your successes and misses. You can then use the log as a tool for improvement the next day. It can also act as a tool to let everyone in the household understand how she is doing. The more you can observe and adjust, the faster the pottying will be properly directed outside. Also remember about the “powder room alternative” when you are going to be out of the house “just too long”.

Initial Issues: Puppy, potty , chewing, walk with harness, nipping — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash. Go down low and say it once. Give slight, directions tugs to get Chewi to come to you. It you are only 1 foot away to start, that is fine. Take it slow when Chewi is awake. 2) Walk with the harness. Chewi only needs to be around you and moving with you. Hold leash and give slight tugs with only two fingers so you don’t “yank” him. You only need to walk about 10 feet, turn, walk in another direction, and then stop/praise for an initial walk. 3) No jumping to Chewi does not show dominance or take control by getting you to respond in a way he wants. Stand/grrr/squirt to have him stop and give you focus. 4) Always make sure it is your idea. You need to hold the focus. 5) Potty – remember to always watch and manage the water. Keep the written schedule to help you remember and manage the day. Always observe so that the next day can build on accurate observations of the current day. Review the online documentation. 6) Use the leash as an alternative to the Stand/Grrr/Squirt direct correction. The leash is a passive redirection that is still used because Chewi is breaking your rules and your goal is respectful focus.

Initial Issues: Potty, Puppy — Training Notes: 1) Follow the potty information we provided. Build your potty approved area with the pads and slowly expand the “no potty zone” over time. Review the documentation on line. 2) Practice the COME as a good, initial obedience command. Say it once and always have her on the leash. Direct her with the leash to you if she is not responding. You can always start out at a shorter distance if she is having a “difficult learning day”.

Praise and stand up. 2) The barking can mostly be resolved with a redirection of the leash. 3) Jumping can be best done with a redirection of the leash or stepping on the leash. 4) Say Sit and then give quiet correction is Wrex doesn’t sit. Say it again and then guide down with leash and direction with hand on rear quarters. Never push. 5) Practice Front Door. Keep Wrex back as you open door. If needed, use leash to guide away. Never hold the leash, guide and then drop. Always face him to constantly communicate that “you mean it”. Praise when the guest is inside and the door is closed. 6) Always make sure that it is your idea. 7) Use the leash as a redirection tool to maintain his focus on your calm and resolute body posture. 8) Keep off the sofa by calmly redirecting off with the leash. Remember that the leash will probably be your best, initial tool for teaching and leadership building.

Guide down with leash and slight direction on rear end. 3) Walk on one side. Use the 6 foot leash and guide. 4) Barking – Stand/Grrr/Squirt. 5) Jumping. Stand/Grrr/Squirt 6) Front door. Keep back behind your boundary. Always face. Open door when he is back and not rushing door. Praise after you close the door. 7) Follow through Door. Always make sure you go first. Have him wait as you step through. Always face him to let him know “you mean business”. 8) Sofa: Take all the pillows and cushions off. Use Velcro to attach “doggie offs” to sofa. 9) Separation Anxiety (lite): Go out the door. One of you could try driving away while the other remains by the door and is very, very quiet. Wait a few minutes to see if you hear any barking or scratching. If you do, correct to stop. This will have him consider that you never left. 10) Back yard boundaries: Use the long lead while he is in the back yard. As he gets to your “boundaries”, tug the leash slightly to guide him in your direction. Try to be a “minimalist” with this.

Initial Issues: Niel Hirst partner, barking, demanding, going nuts at door, jumping, not paying attention — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash. This is to make sure they will always obey when you command. 2) Sit. Show and guide if needed. 3) Barking. Use your height (stand) as you vocalize (grrr) and passively become physical (squirt) to get their attention away from inappropriate distraction and to your dominant body language. 4) Jumping. This is much the same as barking. You can also use the leash to redirect. 5) Front door. This is where you are always facing them as you correct (stand/grrr/squirt) to have them focus on you and not the door. We didn’t have to, but you can also use the leash to redirect away. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. 7) Use the leash to maintain focus and if your stand/grrr/squirt isn’t working./ This plays through the barking, jumping, front door, and other focus issues. WE WILL WANT TO TRY AND GET OUTDOORS NEXT TIME IF ALL GOES WELL.

Initial Issues: Sure happy in new home. Coming from Apt to House with yard. Happy with Room Mates (one dog fearful). — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash only. Stoop down low and give a slight tug. Praise and stand. 2) Walk on the single to double leash with the shake can. Correct with Stand/Grr/Shake and direct away from inappropriate distraction awhile maintaining focus on you. We may need to step up to single leashes, if needed. 3) Barking – Redirect from fence where barking at the dogs with the leash. You can try the Stand/Grrr/Shake, but I think the leash may be more effective. 4) Always make sure it is your idea. The Boss always directs and leads. 5) The leash is a great tool to redirect and allows you to stay calm while you are gaining their focus. 6) Play in the back yard to build up calm, safe, socialized environment in new home. 7) Feed separately so that you know how much each one is eating. Abacus Animal Hospital 10872 Wiles Rd. 954-755-0055. Don’t keep the Shake or Squirt Bottles in the dogs’ sight until you use them.

Say once and then guide. Praise and stand up when done. 2) Practice Sit using the leash. 3) Stay – You can practice this as part of the Follow Thru Door exercise. 4) Barking.

Be consistent and act in the moment or when Max is about to do it. 6) Front Door. Maintain a boundary of where Max is not allowed. Always face him as you are opening the door and correct if he begins to approach and cross your boundary. Praise when the door is closed. 7) Follow Thru Door. Have Max sit as you open the door. He is to stay as you step thru the door. Face him always. Once both of your feet are on the other side of the thresh hold, you can call him out and have him sit one more time. Praise. 8) Always make sure it is your idea. 9) Use the leash to redirect him away from bad behavior and to calm his adrenaline. Praise when he is good and focused on you. 10) Nipping. Don’t get adrenalized with him where nipping may come into play. Correct in the moment or if you are sure he is about to nip. >> Consistency, Repetition, Simplicity.

The boss is always the one that the rest of the group will follow, respect, and give focus. 6) Use the leash to redirect and use when “Stand/Grrr/Squirt” isn’t working. 7) Your play/socialization should be active outside and calm inside. 8) Use a rubber brush to practice brushing in a noninvasive way. You can even use your fingers to make sure it isn’t too rough. Put Bitter Apple on brush if needed. 9) Pool- put the leash on her and guide her to the steps so she knows where the out is located. 10) Always stay calm and face Katie when you want to have a calm experience in going to the sofa to sit or front door to go out. >> Remember that when you use your body language in a calm and dominant manner, Katie will understand that you are the leader.

Initial Issues: New baby, crate — Training Notes: 1) Practice Come on the leash 2) Practice Sit on the leash 3) Walk calmly on the leash and prong collar. Give slight tug and Grrr to keep focus on you and roughly beside you. 4) No Jumping. Stand on leash or redirect with leash to keep focus on you and all four paws on the ground. 5) Make sure you go through the door first. You always face during the command and Murphy isn’t allowed to go through doorway until both of your feet are on other side and you invite. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. The leader always tells the followers what to do. 7) The leash is very important in the process. Use it to direct Murphy and for passive control in safety of your baby. 8) Play time is needed to continue the bond and relationship with Murphy as your household is rebalancing with your new son. Set aside one hour a day for “Murphy Time”. 9) Always make sure someone is between Murphy and your son. 10) Make sure Murphy is always on the leash and prong collar when out and about. 11) Move the crate to a place in the family room where he feels more of a “part of everything”.

Initial Issues: pottying in house, not listening, pulling on leash — Training Notes: 1) Practice Come on a leash. Only use leash whenever you say “come”. 2) Practice Sit on the leash. This is also the last thing you do with the Walk Command. 3) Walk with a 6 foot leash in your yard. Always by your side, correct if they start to move away. Change directions if they pull. GRRR and slight tug on leash to direct and guide. Stop and have them sit. Sometimes, just stop to have them look at you and then keep going. Focus is most important. 4) Jumping. Your foot on the leash should do the trick. The shake bottle should also help. 5) It must always be your idea. You are the boss and they are the follower. 6) Use the leash as a redirected tool to maintain their respectful focus in a calm manner. 7) Potty- Manage food and water. Feed at specific time. Take out at specific times. Check on them every 30 minutes. Lavender to clean area. Pick up poop to eliminate smell. Walking will help once we get it working for you inside. >> Remember to get a 6 foot leash for inside walking and a 20 foot leash/lead in anticipation of outside walking/pottying. The Easy Walk Harness should really help control and direct.

Initial Issues: Jumps on people, Pulls on leash, Vacume Cleaner — Training Notes: 1) Practice sit on the leash. This will be used with your “thru the door” and “walk” exercises. 2) Walk. I suggest getting the EASY WALK harness. This helps to minimize pulling. Walk as long as it is your rules. If needed, end early. Give little tugs to get Jeb to focus and go in your direction. If he wants to cross the street, it can be your idea if you first have him sit and then you direct him across the street. Take goodies to help him focus on goodies YOU want him to focus on. 3) Jumping. You can use your STAND / GRRR/ SQUIRT -or- SHAKE to get his focus that you don’t want him to jump. You can also step on the leash to keep him down. When having guests, keep him calm and allow him to go over to them and have them request to pet. Keep this slow. 4) Have him sit and wait as you step through the door. Always face him as you step out. Then allow him to join you. 5) Use the leash as a “Plan B” for focus and respect. 6) It is always the boss’s idea so you need to make sure that, whatever you do with Jeb, it is your idea. You are the Boss. >>>Remember – EASY WALK HARNESS – We used a Medium on Jeb today.

Initial Issues: General stuff. Her sons will be part of the training 7yo / 9yo. — Training Notes: 1) Always stay calm and stand tall to correct and show that you are the boss. Ramp up with your vocal correction. I was using the GRRRR as the sound today. You then use the shake bottle or water bottle as your third level of correction (passive physical). 2)Jumping – Use the Stand/GRRR/Squirt and/or the foot on leash to control. Stay calm and cool. 3) Barking (although there wasn’t any barking this afternoon…) Use the leash to redirect back to you to calm and control. You can also use the Stand/GRRR/Squirt; but remember that may stimulate them and cause additional barking. 4) Practice Sit while using the leash. Say once and praise if they do it. If they don’t sit, guide down and then praise. 5) Practice Come on the leash. Go down low, say come, and then give a slight tug on the leash to guide them to you. Stand up as soon as they get to you and praise for success. 6) Walking in the front area only for now. Have them walk next to you and give slight tug on “vampire collar” to get their passive attention and focus to you. Have them sit when you stop. 7) Always make sure it is your idea. You always want to be the one show says “I want you to do this.” 8) Use the leash when the “Stand/GRRR/SQUIRT-Shake” isn’t working. Think of it as your backup plan (Plan B) that will always succeed. 9) You need to get them somewhere where they can just run and be nuts. They have adrenaline and need to get it out. Barkham Park is fine if you watch for the crazy people and take them when it isn’t really busy. >> Practice the exercises with them individually so that one doesn’t distract the other.

Initial Issues: Potty — Training Notes: 1) Use lavender in house to create a special location smell. Spray the dogs with a lavender spray or lavender shampoo so they smell like lavender too. This minimized the potty because of marking and territory 2) Watch their potty habits to build a schedule. Make note when they go outside and make mistakes inside. Adjust your expectations daily based on your prior observations. 3) Pick up the food in the evening. This minimized the food they may potty out at night. Also, make sure to get them out in the evening for a little play to stimulate their need for potty before “lights out”. 4) Make sure that they have pottied or just pottied after heavy duty play outside and bringing them back inside. 5) Be sure to remain watchful of them all the time. You need to observe their potty successes and mistakes to make an educated decision on when to get them out. 6) Be sure to clean up their mistakes in the house with an enzyme cleaner such as Nature’s Miracle. 7) Always focus on improvement and not the time it takes. Every success is one step forward you don’t have to make again. 8) Don’t forget to check out our documentation. It is “the notes” of most of the things we talked about today.

Initial Issues: manners, puppy — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME in the leash. Go town low, say command and give slight tug to direct in your direction (if needed) Praise when he does it. Stand up to complete. 2) Practice SIT with the leash also. Say SIT once and if he does it, praise. If not, correct with low tone and say again. This time, direct by giving pull back not leash and slight guide of back to lower rear side. Praise when sits. 3) Barking – Stand/Grrrr/Squirt or redirect with leash away from distraction and praise when focused and calm. 5) Jumping – Stand/Grrrr/Squire or step on leash to not physically allow. Praise when calm and focused on you (and not jumping). 6) Make sure you go through door first. 7) It must always be your idea so you will maintain your role as the boss. 8) Use the leash to control. Step on the leash and stand tall & calm. If needed, pick up the leash and walk Amigo in a direction so that he is focused on you. Stop when he is calm and praise. 9) Pants. When you approach Amigo, make sure you watch to see if he is about to go for your pants. Correct while you stand tall and facing him directly. As you move around him, always face him. You must face him to maintain dominance. (We need to determine the best way to have Amigo meet the Frenchies.)

Initial Issues: jumping, teething, nbipping,pulls on leash, getting in the car — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say the command once and give a slight tug to direct to you. Praise and stand up. Start close to you and extend when he “gets it”. 2) Practice SIT on the leash. Say once. If he doesn’t do it, correct, say again, and guide down to a sit. Praise. 3) Practice WALK with a short leash. Pick one side and have near you. Give slight tugs to maintain appropriate position. Turn around, if he starts to pull too much. Get the EASY WALK HARNESS. 4) If needed, practice BACK LEASH. This is where he starts to pull and you let him walk out farther ahead as you give him more leash. When he reaches the end of his leash, give it a tug and march him in another direction. 5) No Jumping. Give him a Stand/.Grrr/Squirt to get his attention and stop jumping. You can also step on the leash. Always praise with a high pitched GOOD BOY when he obeys. 6) Always make sure you go through the door before him. 7) Make sure it is always your idea. This tells him you are the boss and the one he needs to provide focus for direction. 8) You can use the leash as your “Plan B” in correcting and getting focus. Step on it and walk him away from the situation, when needed. >> We need to work on the car nest time. Also, make sure he has “more gas” next time so we can really see where his walking issues manifest themselves. We can also think about a Weston Visit to work on the lake and issues specifically taking place at that location.

Initial Issues: dog aggression, anxiety — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say it once and tug to direct, if needed. 2) SIT on the leash. 3) WALK – Keep on a short leash and turn directions so she will be required to focus on you. Speed up and slow down, drop, and sit. 4) Use the Stand/Grrr/Squirt for jumping. You can also step on the leash to inhibit jumping. 5) FRONT DOOR – Create a boundary where Rosie can not cross when you are answering front door. Face her and correct to keep her back. Open the door to let the person in, close the door, and then go down low to encourage her to come to you. Praise. 6) ALWAYS YOUR IDEA – The boss always says “I want YOU to do this”. Make sure you are the boss. 7) Use the leash as your “Plan B” to direct her attention to you and obey you if your “Stand/Grrr/Squirt” is not effective at that moment. 8) SEPARATION ANXIETY – Slowly have one person move farther away until out of sight while the other has Rosie. Slow down if the becomes too anxious. Switch up the steps you follow to leave. You can even do your “leaving steps” and then don’t leave. It is not a race but a consistent, learning process. 9) COMING IN THE SIDE DOOR – Have the squirt bottle out ahead of you as you slowly crack open the door. Give your verbal correction and (if needed) squirt to keep her back. Make sure she is back before you enter. If she approaches and jumps out of excitement, correct.

Initial Issues: Jumps, Pulls on Leash, crazy, on furniture, not listening — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Extend until about 30 feet and then drop leash. Then unhook leash. 2) Practice SIT with the leash. If she doesn’t sit, use the leash to direct her down with slight pull back on neck and hand motion on back to move rear back and down. Walk on one side, turn, walk, and sit. Do this in back yard. Get EASY WALK harness. 4) Use Stand/Grrr/Squirt or leash to stop jumping. Keep it calm. 5) Always remember that it is the Boss’s idea. Make sure it is your idea. 6) Use the leash to redirect and defuse the situation. Keep it calm. This is your “Plan B” when the Stand/Grrr Squirt or Stand/Grrr/Shake isn’t effective that day. 7) Potty – Manage the water between meals to eliminate water bloat while maintaining proper hydration. 8) Only play crazy outside. Remember the outside is the football field and the inside is the library. 9) Use the Leash to direct off the furniture. If needed, step on the leash to keep her off as you sit on the furniture.

Initial Issues: General Puppy Stuff, Potty, Not Listening, Jumping, etc. Wife & 11YO Daughter — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. After Moo will always come without a tug, drop the leash on the ground and do it again. 2) FRONT DOOR – Remember to correct immediately if Moo tried to “cross your line” at the front door as you are answering it. >>Remember a) Only way your command once. The command isn’t “come, come, come, come, come”. b) Follow through with every command. Consistency is important. This means every command needs to begin, proceed, and end in the same way. c) Always practice and watch how Moo is evolving. d) We went over Pottying. The Potty Documents that you can find on your Dog Training Web Site will go into depth regarding every step. The most important things to remember are (a) Manage the water (b) Always watch so you can act on both successes and mistakes.

Guide down if needed and praise when sitting. 3) Read the potty documents on line. The two big things to take into account is to manage the amount of water intake and to always watch for accidents WHEN then happen. 4) Correct all bad behavior. If she is making you mad, that is bad behavior and is breaking your rules. If that happens, always correct to teach consistency. This makes it easy for her to learn right and wrong very quickly.

Initial Issues: Potty — Training Notes: 1) COME on a leash. You can use the treat, but hide with finger and guide to you. Use the leash as a teaching tool when doesn’t come. Slowly limit the treat. 2) SIT. Use the leash and be sure to praise when she does it. If she doesn’t do it, pull back on the leash so that her center of gravity moves backwards and she starts to go down. Use your other hand to guide (not push)her into a sit. 3) JUMPING – stand up, use your correction sound, and finally your squirt bottle to have her stop jumping. As soon as she is calm and focused, praise. You can also use the leash to redirect if she is just crazy. 4) Always make sure it is your idea. The boss always leads and the boss always tells the rest of the group what to do. It is always your idea and this will build respectful focus. 5) Use the leash to redirect when the stand/grrr/squirt isn’t effective. As soon as she is calm and focused on you, praise. 6) When it comes to potty, remember the “W’s”; watch so you can see when and how she is making a mistake and manage the water to hydrate but not bloat. 7) NIPPING – Try and be proactive. Correct before she nips. Move your hands slowly below her face. No fast actions. Hot Sauce to make yourself “taste bad”. Use chew toys as alternatives. 8) Get a lighter leash and Easy Walk Harness for better training tools. 9) Here is a Craigs List posting for the place with the dog crates: (they have moved) https://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/fod/6135931415.html

Initial Issues: sassy, nipping, loves water, has 3 other ones — Training Notes: 1) COME – Say it once and then use the leash to direct (teach) towards you. Start at a place she can learn. This may be 6 feet, 3 feet, or 2 feet. The starting point is not as important as the successful completion of the command and lesson given. 2) FRONT DOOR. Pick a place that you do not want her to cross when you are managing people at the front door. If she starts to cross, correct and make sure she stays back. Remember that your rule is to stay on the far side for the line. That is your one AND ONLY rule. When the person has entered, close the door, praise her for being a good puppy, and call her over to you to greet your guest. 3) Remember that the two most important things with potty are watching her to make sure she doesn’t potty, and if she does, when and where she did it. This will help you make a better decision next time. Also, manage the water. Make sure she has enough to hydrate but not too much to bloat. Keep a little in her bowl and check back on it. If the water is gone, refill and make a note of when you did. If she is making accidents, do not refill her bowl as quickly. Also, when you are filling her bowl, we suggest no more than one inch of water. This allows you to manage easily while maintaining hydration.

Initial Issues: diesn’t listen, pulls on mother-in-law-s leash, barks at dogs, jumps on windows, shadows monther – Sophia Tsukerman — Training Notes: 1) COME using the leash. Say once and then give a slight tug to get to you . Praise and stand up. 2) SIT using the leash. If she doesn’t sit, pull the leach back slightly to get her to become off balance to the rear. Now, you should use your other hand to slightly guide her rear down to the ground. 3) BARKING – use the Stand/Sound/Squirt to break her moment and focus back to you. You can also use the leash for redirection, if needed. 4) JUMPING – The Stand/Sound/Squirt normally works really well with this. Try to be proactive. By that, if you are entering into a situation where you know she normally demands attention and displays dominance, proactively correct her. 5) FRONT DOOR – Create a boundary that she can’t cross if you are greeting someone at the door. Face her and correct (Stand/Sound/Squirt) to direct her behind the line. Slowly open the door while you are facing her to let the person in. Close the door and praise her for obeying. 6) Walking – Practice this with the EASY WALK harness and a standard, 6 foot leash. Simply walk her on one side about ten feet down the hall, turn, walk back, and have her sit. Praise. This is getting her used to walking and focusing on you as “the driver”. 7) Always make sure it is your idea. 8) Use the leash as a “Plan B” to the Stand/Sound/Squirt. This is a redirection where you will step on the leash for passive control and remove her from the situation through directive and calm walking; if needed. 8) NIPPING – Use your correction to let her know this is wrong. If this is caused by petting, make sure you slowly approach your hand (back of it facing her) from below her head and rub as a petting sensation. This is a sign of grooming and respect. 9) Remember about the EASY WALK HARNESS and SIX FOOT LEASH. >>> Keep it slow and calm. This helps show your passive leadership and natural dominance. Respectful Focus is always your main goal.

Give a tug to direct, if needed. Praise when the get it right. 2) SIT using the leash. If they don’t sit, guide with the leach by puling back and up from the next to get off balance to the rear. Then, guide down with other hand on rear. Praise when sit. 3) Walk with the leash in the house. Walk on one side for 10 feet, turn, walk back, stop, and sit. Praise when done. 5) Correct jumping with Stand/Sound/Squirt or leash redirection. 5) FRONT DOOR – Create boundary they can’t cross when you are greeting at front door. Face them and keep behind boundary. Open door and let person in. Close door, praise them, put bottle behind you, and go down low to invite over for pets. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. Don’t let them tell you what to do. It is always the boss’s idea. 7) Use the leash to redirect them to respectful focus. Put it on them at different times during the day. Have on and off so they get used to it. Step on it and redirect, if needed. >>> Keep is simple and consistent. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

Initial Issues: great at home, dog aggressive outside, 3 legs, rescue from miami — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash to help build focus and consistency. 2) SIT on the leash. Guide down, if needed. You will also want Leo sitting out in the front yard to help show passive focus to you. 3) Practice WALK in the house, in the back yard, and as part of the exercise in the front. Pick one side and that is the side he will walk on. It is not super important to have him right at your side, but near you and always ready to give you focus. If you give a slight tug on the leash, he will look right to you. 4) NO JUMPING. If he does, correct with the Stand/Sound/Squirt-Shake or by putting your foot on the leash so he can’t get height. 5) Always make sure that you go through the door first. This is to show him that you are the boss and you are doing your job of keeping him safe. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and you are always the one to tell him what you want him to do. 7) Use the leash as your “Plan B” if your standard correction isn’t effective. Have the leash on him at different times when you are home and step on it to get control. You then can guide him to a point of respectful focus to regain your leadership, his respect, and his focus. 8) Practice getting ready for the outside walk. First, make sure you have card board on the front door so they can’t see the other dogs outside and get crazy all by themselves. Next, have Leo on a leash and open the door. Stay inside in the doorway and make sure he sits and does not react to anything going on outside. If he does, walk him around until he is calm and then continue. Next, take him through he doorway with you going first. Stand there and have him sit until he is not reacting to anything going on. Now, sit on the front porch with him next to you. He is to give you focus and not go nuts when things pass by. If he starts to react, back it up. Now, go half way down the driveway and practice until he is constantly calm and focused on you. Finally, go to the grass in the front by the street. He can look at things, but he can’t go nuts. If he does, back the exercise up several steps until he is calm and then continue. This is not a race. Also, take the care out of the front driveway so he has a good view of the street from the house and front porch.

Initial Issues: Buddy -typical Golden, doesn’t listen, no pool, jumping, big eater, counter surfing, two dogs go nuts with eachother — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. 2) Practice SIT on the leash. 3) As soon as they start to jump, Stand/Sound/Squirt to have them drop to the ground. Then praise for a good job. 4) FRONT DOOR – Create a boundary line where they can not cross when you are at the front door letting someone in or conducting other business. Always face them and use the Stand/Sound/Squirt to keep them behind the boundary line. If needed, you can use the leash to guide them behind the line if things get a little crazy. The rule is to stay behind the line, so as long as they stay behind, everything is great. Back up to the door slowly, always facing them. Slowly open the door and let the person in. Close the door and then praise them for doing a good job. 5) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and the one “giving the orders”. They need to understand you are the boss and provide you focus. You can only do this if everything is always your idea. 6) Use the leash as your “Plan B” to maintain control and respectful focus. Have it on at different times in the house. 7) THE POOL. First, always have them on a leash and have someone handling them whenever anyone goes in our out the back door to the pool. Redirect them back to you if they want to follow or become adrenalized. Use the leash to guide them away from the windows if they run into the other room to look out the window to people in the pool. Continue to practice this until they are not always totally focused on trying to get out the door or completely focused on the outside. They should be focused on you as their handler. Next, you can go outside with the dogs on a leash. Keep them away from the pool and guide them/redirect them to you if they get too interested in the pool activities. If you want them in the pool, walk into the pool with them on a leash on the shallow step. Have them sit and show a calm focus to you. Then, you can release them. It is important that you practice a lot in the house to build up the initial calmness and focus on you. Always be aware that whenever the door is open, you need to be managing them. If anyone is going out the door, they must always look back to see where the dogs are and if they need to do anything to keep them back and calm. With active kids and friends, this will take a bit, but se saw that it is possible. 8) Use the Stand/Sound/Squirt to keep them from counter surfing. Try to be proactive and catch them before they start to go airborne. If you leave food on the counter and walk away, understand that you have given up ownership and inviting them to take it.

Initial Issues: puppy, nipping, mouthing, potty (urinate), walking — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME with the leash. Say once and then slightly tug (if needed) to have him come to you. Praise success and stand up. 2) SIT with the leash. Say once and then direct down with the leash and slight hand direction on rear into the sit. Praise Good Puppy. 3) WALK in the house first. Walk from Family Room to your Office, turn, walk back, and sit. Walk on left side. Walk outside, if needed. You might take shorter outside walks more often. 4) Correct JUMPING with stand/grrr/squirt. 5) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the BOSS. 6) Use the leash to control if the “Stand/Grrr/Squirt” isn’t being effective. It is your “Plan B”. Step on the leash and redirect away until you get respectful and calm focus. 7) POTTY – Make the crate area smaller so he only has enough room to sleep. Feed breakfast later *8AM-ish) and dinner around 5-ish. Limit water sooner at night. Remove the rugs and other items that might have pee on them. This also may be the bedding in the crate. 8) NIPPING can be correct with stand/grrr/squirt. You can be proactive if you “see it coming”.

Now, slightly guide the dog’s rear down. 3) Practice the FRONT DOOR. Keep Woodie behind your safety line. Always face him during the exercise. Remember, your exercises start on the leash. You can then drop the leash when things are going well. Then, you can perform the commands off the leash when you are confident that you will not need to guide to have your commands met. You must also remember to say your commands only once. If needed, correct in a firm tone (like you mean it). When Woodie obeys and is a good boy, don’t forget to praise to identify the correct action.

Initial Issues: Pulling on leash — Training Notes: 1) Walk – Use the Easy Walk Harness. Make sure that they are calm in the house before you open the door. Open the door and you step out first. Always be facing them. Have them step out and then stay & be calm. Then, you start the walk. Stop from time to time to make sure they are focused on you. Change direction, if needed. A walk is “not a march”, so take breaks and let them “smell the roses”. Always be aware of your surroundings. Your are responsible for their safety. 2) Back Leash – If they are a little too crazy on the walk, let them move out ahead of you on the leash. When they reach the end of the leash, give it a tug back and direct them back to you. This reminds them of “show is driving the bus”. 3) Use your Stand/Grrr/Shake Bottle to stop jumping. 4) Make sure that you go through the door first. 5) Always make sure that it is your idea. You are the boss and they need to focus on you. 6) Have the leash on and off in the house so that they will not think it means “walkies” and stops the “leash crazy stuff”. 7) Don’t forget to get the Easy Walk Harness. Brutus needs an Extra Large and Charlie a Large.

Initial Issues: puppy stuff, pulls on leash, chewing hands, coesn’t come, barking, getting out of pool — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Go down low, say COME once and then show and guide to you. Good Puppy and stand up. Don’t say COME without the leash so you are consistent. 2) Practice SIT on the leash. If she doesn’t sit, pull back and up on the leash to get her off balance and let gravity take her down. Use your hand to guide. 3) WALK. First get a EZ Walk harness. Put the leash & harness on to get her used to just having them on. Once she when no longer goes crazy, walk her around for a bit so that she understands to walk next to you. Now, take her to the door, but don’t go out. Walk around to the door a few more times. This may take a bit so she isn’t adrenalized. Now open the door, have her sit, you step out (facing her) and then invite her out. Have her sit and be calm as you check the neighborhood to make sure all is good. Now, start the walk on a short leash. Use your fingers in your hand to give slight tugs to guide her. Walk at your pace. Stop from time to time to make sure walk is on your terms. Break it up into multiple, shorter walks. This will assure quality and consistency. 4) BARKING – Correct with redirection on leash or “Stand/Grrr/Squirt”. You can also use the Shake bottle. The important thing is to redirect focus to you. 5) JUMPING – Stand/Grrr/Squirt should take care of it. 6) FOLLOW THRU DOOR – Make her sit at doorway as you open the door and step thru. You always face her. She can not move until both your feet are on the other side of the door and you invite her out. Always praise for a good job. 7) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss. 8) Use the leash to redirect her when the simple correction is not working. 9) Correct proactively by standing up and giving verbal correction for chewing. You can also try some Bitter Apple on your hands as s deterrent. 10) Practice getting her OK in the back before we hit the “pool safety” issue.

Initial Issues: Anxiety about gettiong out door, very attached to Reyna, get between her and boyfriend. Got from Petland. Initially sic. — Training Notes: 1) LEASH SOCIALIZATION – You need to get Fynn to see the leash as a “non event”. Put the leash on both of them and then do other, misc. things. Do not always put the leash on to go outside. This will take several days of practice to break the learned association. 2) GO TO DOOR – Fynn has some separation anxiety symptoms when one of both of you go to door. Here is what you do: Both of you are in living room with Fynn. Fynn is on the leash with one of you. The other gets up (with water bottle) and slowly moves towards door. Take small steps and always face Fynn. If needed, SHHH/Squirt to have him stay back. If he gets too agitated, stop your exercise for then. Eventually you should get to door and then rattle lock and then slowly open door. This is not a race. Always teach where Fynn can learn. Some days you may not get as close to the door as before. Always move slowly and pause between steps. It is all about getting Fynn to think “no problem”. 3) NO BARKING – Use communication of Stand/SHHHH/Squirt to redirect barking. You can also redirect with the leash to focus back to you. 4) NO JUMPING. The Stand/Shhh seemed to work pretty well today. If needed, increase with Squirt and redirect. 5) USE OF LEASH – This can be used when the Stand/SHHH/Squirt isn’t working that day. You step on the leash and redirect by your stance and walking in a calm manner away to get focus and respect. 6) YOU ARE THE BOSS -Always make sure it is your idea. This keeps focus and direction towards you. 7) POTTY – The excitement pee may be because of too full a bladder. Manage and limit Fynn’s water so he stays healthy and hydrated, but not full of water. You can work on the “marking” by setting the smell of the house with lavender.

Practice inside and then outside. 2) FRONT DOOR. Always face them so you remain dominant and in charge. Correct as they come to the safety line you have established that you don’t want them to cross.

Initial Issues: potty, obedience — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say once and go down low. Give a little tug to direct, if needed. Praise when he comes. Stand up. 2) Practice SIT with the leash. Say once and then give slight tug back and up with leash to get him off balance and going down from the rear. Use your hand to passively direct his rear to the ground. 3) NO BITING. Do not have your hands around his face as that will adrenalize and encourage playful nipping. Correct if he starts to move near hands. Use Bitter Apple on hands to make them taste “bad”. 4) POTTY. Follow what we talked about today and review the documentation you can access from the information in the email. The big things are always have him in sight and manage the water. Remember –> Use your deep voice when you want to correct him. You can use the shake bottle or clap to “ramp it up”, if needed. Always identify the proper action with a rewarding “Good Boy” in a high pitch.

Say once. If not sit, correct, say again and guide to a sit. Praise when done. 3) Barking. Probably the best thing to do is to redirect. 4) Jumping. Use the water bottle with your Stand/Grrr/Squirt to get all four paws on the ground. If needed, redirect. 5) Front Door. Always face, keep back, open door, let person in, close door. praise. 6) Leash.

Initial Issues: jumping, counter surfing, walking on the leash — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say your command once and then give a slight tug to direct. Go down low when you say your command to enforce your verbal command with guiding body language. 2) Practice SIT using the leash. If he doesn’t respond to your single command, guide him down by pulling the leash slightly up and back to move him backwards and his center of gravity behind his rear paws. This will naturally cause him to start to go down. Always praise him for a good job. 3) Do not let him jump. You can use your correction sound with the spray bottle or chain bottle as your assertive deterrent. Always remember to stand. Thai is most important.

Initial Issues: crazy, typiucal puppy stuff, chewing, counter surfing, walking on leash, jumping — Training Notes: 1) Practice SIT on the leash. If he doesn’t sit, slightly pull the leash back and upwards to get him off balance and guide him down. Praise when he sits. 2) WALK first in the house so that he knows to give you focus and to respect your lead. When you go to the door to go outside, have him sit and then you step through the door first; always facing him. Walk on one side and keep on a shorter leash so you can easily guide him if he starts to loose focus on you. Walk to end of driveway and sit. Then, return to garage and sit. Walk back inside, waiting at door as you go through first. 3) NO JUMPING. He responds pretty well to the Stand/GRRR/Shake. Be consistent and determined. Use the leash, if needed. 4) FRONT DOOR. Practice having someone go to the front door and knock/ring. You are there and keep him away from the door by setting a “don’t cross here line”. Correct and redirect back, if needed. Always face him as you open door and let person in. Praise when the door is finally closed. 5) HE FOLLOWS YOU THROUGH THE DOOR. We have already mentioned this, but make sure you always go through the door first. Remember that the leader always leads. 6) ALWAYS MAKE SURE IT IS YOUR IDEA. This will assure his focus on you and make it easier for you to give your commands. Do not allow him to be Paris Hilton. 7) USE OF THE LEASH. Use the leash as a passive/physical tool to redirect his bad behavior when the correction is not effective. Step on the leash and redirect him away so he focuses on your calm behavior. Once he is also calm and focused, praise him for doing the right thing. 8) COUNTER SURFING. Put stuff away and out of his reach when you are not there to correct. If he tries to counter surf when you are present, face him and correct. >>>Consistency and your confidence will rule the day. You are not trying to scare, frighten, or hurt him. You are demonstrating that you are the strong leader who will protect and love him.

Initial Issues: separation anxiety, vet gave meds, other private training. Want to wean off meds. Destroyed crate when gone, sit, come, pay attention when walking, stay, jumping, front door — Training Notes: 1) Separation Anxiety – First, make sure she is OK with you in the room with you. Next, move away to the kitchen where she can still see you. Next, move into another room where she can still see you. After that, step out of sight for a moment and step back. Extend the length of time where you are out of sight. Now, go to the door you leave and stand in front. Next, open the door and close it. Next, step out, close the door for a moment and step back. Continue the time you step out and close the door. Now, open the garage door. After that, start the car. Finally, drive away. During all these times, if she begins to become overly nervous, quietly correct her (stand/shhh/squirt or if on other side of door, shhh and tap on door). If she is still showing signs of tension, step back one step until she shows that she is calm. Continue the process from there. When you are outside and leaving, have one person stay behind “as the ghost” and correct her. Make noises when you are in sight and out of sight as distractions to your visual presence. Perform all your activities (get keys, finish coffee, get coat, etc.) at different times so she doesn’t associate them with leaving. Always keep it slow and always consistent. Be ready to “back up a bit” if needed. As she gets better at a particular level, think of cutting the meds back ever so slightly. 2) Crate: Get her used to crate so you can put her in there when you are home and when you leave. Take small steps towards her socialization and never push it on her. 3) Practice COME only on the leash. Say the command ONCE and use the leash to guide through small, quick tugs for direction. Praise. 4) Practice SIT with the leash. 5) JUMPING. Although she only did this once or twice, I think the stand/shhh/squirt and praise should be the trick. 6) ALWAYS MAKE IT YOUR IDEA. 7) Practice FRONT DOOR. Always face her and keep her behind your line from the time you are at the door until the time the person is inside and the door is closed. Praise her when done. 8) Use the LEASH with all your obedience exercises and as a behavioral tool to get her attention. It is used when the water bottle or chains in the can are not effective. –> REMEMBER, Keep it slow and consistent. Do not baby her but be resolute so she understands she can trust you. If things don’t seem to be working, back it up.

Initial Issues: general puppy things, potty, jumping, whining, coming in door, listening — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say once and then tug to direct. Praise and stand up. 2) SIT – Say once and then guide down. Praise when sits. 3) BARKING – He really didn’t bark to correct, but Stand/Grrrr/Squirt. 4) JUMPING, as with barking, didn’t really happened today, but Stand/GRRR/SQUIRT. 5) FOLLOW THRU DOOR – You keep him back while facing him. Open and go thru door while facing him. Correct if he follows. Close door and just before closed, praise for a good job. This is true of any door you go through where he has opportunity to follow. Remember – be consistent. 6) Make sure it is always your idea. That makes you the boss and you will get his focus on what to do next. 7) Use the LEASH when the GRRR and water aren’t working. Step on the leash and then guide away until he is calm and focused. That is your goal. The leash is also for the obedience exercises as your teaching tool, if needed. 8) Socialize with new sounds and items in the house. Do not go in front or wander until he has all four shots. 9) POTTY – Read the docs. But remember to a) Use Lavender to have house and Astro smell the same. b) Clean up all potty in house with good cleanser and Nature’s Miracle 3) Scatter Feed where he is pottying because you don’t poop where you eat. d) Measure food and put down for about 20 minutes and pick up. Leave a little water down, but manage. e) Remember he normally will potty when he gets up, after eating, just before you go away, when you come back, after hard play, last thing at night, and after 1 hour for every month he is old. Next, make schedule of your time and put in his potty times. Take him out for up to 20 to 30 minutes. Play hard and let him wander. If he potty’s great. Wait about 5 minutes and bring him in and give a little treat. If he doesn’t potty, bring back in, wait 20 minutes, and take out again. When he is inside, always watch and manage water. If he makes a potty accident inside, make note of it so you can improve tomorrow. Get a lighter leash when outside. –> Digging : Think about sand, digging pit.

Initial Issues: fearful, jumps and mips at people — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say once and then guide. Praise. 2) Practice SIT with the leash. Say once. If not sitting, pull leash back and up slightly and guide rear down. Do not push. Praise when done. 3) Work on STAY which is really a long sit. Use the leash to stay in control. 4) WALK should improve greatly with the EASY WALK Harness. This will give you the ability to have her focus and easily direct her to a place of safety showing your leadership. 5) Practice people coming to the front door. Remember to create a boundary that she can not cross. Always face her and correct when she approaches the boundary. Praise her when the person is inside and the door is closed. 6) Make sure that everything is always your idea. 7) Use the leash as your “Plan B” if the straight correction is not working that day. You can easily redirect her away from the bad action and have her give you focus and become calm. Praise her for doing a good job. It is all about respectful focus to your rules.

Initial Issues: barks a lot, separation anxiety, leadership, possible e-collar training — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME always using the leash. Give a slight tug if she doesn’t come. Only say your command once. 2) Practice SIT with the leash. If needed, direct her down by slightly pulling up and back on the leash to get her off balanced (like I pushed you back from your shoulders during the lesson). Use your other hand to guide her rear back and down. 3) WALK with the leash in the house. Just walk any place with her next to you. Have her sit when you stop. 4) Use your Stand/GRRR/Shake to redirect her back to you when she starts to BARK at an inappropriate distraction. You can also use the leash to redirect back to you for calm focus. 5) The jumping is much the same as the barking. They are both dominance assertive actions. Correct her or redirect her with the leash to focus on a “calm and steady” you. Praise her when she is good. 6) Practice the FRONT DOOR. Set a boundary she can cross and when the person knocks, she must stay behind the boundary. Always focus and face her. Correct if she begins to approach. Only open the door when she is no longer moving towards the door. Make sure she stays back the entire time until the person is inside the door and the door is closed. You can then call her over to you for praise. 7) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and she needs to give you focus in anticipation of what you want her to do or what she has done wrong. Remember that your rules must be simple so as she is focused on you, she can understand what you want her to do. 8) Use the leash as your “Plan B” if the Squirt Bottle or Shake Bottle are not working that day. Step on the leash and direct her back to you. If she is still not calm and focused, walk her away from whatever is causing the issue. Continue until she is calm and focused. Ask her to do anything (I suggest sit) and when she does, praise her and drop the leash. 9) SEPARATION ANXIETY — This is hard because there are a lot of steps and easy because the steps can be easily accomplished. Make a list of all the triggers you perform before you leave the house. Do each of them individually in front of her. If she starts to become agitated, correct her. Wait a few minutes and repeat. Perform several of the triggers every day. Your goal is to watch her and to let her learn that those things you are doing are no longer precursors to leaving the house. Once you have removed her anxiety from the individual triggers, start to combine them. Slowly group them until you can actually leave the house. You can also group just a few of them and then stop and do anything else. Once you are finally out of the house, stay there and listen quietly. If she starts to bark and whine, correct her. Once she is finally calm, then have someone drive off while another quietly stays back to correct, if needed. This gives her the illusion that even though she thinks you left, you are still just on the other side of the door. Always go slow with Separation Anxiety and always be ready to take a step or two back, if needed.

Initial Issues: general puppy stuff , nips, crazy, jumps, doesn’t come, doesn’t drop — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say once and then give slight tug if needed. Extend the length of the come and finally drop the leash and then unclick it. 2) Practice SIT on the leash. Pull the leash back and up slightly and direct down with your other hand, if teaching is needed. Say the command once and always praise for a good job. 3) Walk on your left side with the harness. Always give slight tugs on the leash to calmly direct to say by your side. 4) Use the BACK LEASH method if he pulls too much. Let him walk ahead of you to the end of the leash and then give a quick tug back to you. 5) JUMPING is a cause of dominance and the need to always be in charge. Always correct by Standing up, GRRRRing, and using the bottle. You can also step on the leash to calmly keep down or to direct away. 6) Practice the FRONT DOOR. Always keep him behind your perimeter line with a correction. Always face him, even when you are opening the door. Close the door and then you can praise for a good job. Call him over to you to see if he is going to ramp up then If he starts, correct. 7) Always make sure everything is your idea. You are the boss and he should be focused on you to see what he should do next. 8) When you go THRU THE DOOR, you go through first because you are the boss. Have him sit, you open the door while facing him. Now you step out and when both of your feet are on the other side of the door, you can invite him out. If he moves, back to a sit and start again. 9) The leash is your “Plan B” if the Stand/GRRR/Squirt isn’t working. It always allows you to calmly take control, get focus, and have him obey your rules. It takes a little more time than the straight Stand/GRRR/Squirt; but it’s use keeps you consistent and the leader.

Initial Issues: Potty, puppy — Training Notes: 1) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and you require the focus. 2) Get him used and socialized to the leash. Have it on a little bit each day. Use it for correction and also for learning. 2) After he is used to the leash, use the leash to practice COME. 3) Barking – redirect with the correction of Stand/Grrr/Squirt as we demonstrated in the first session. 4) Front Door – Keep him back a specific distance from the front door when coming or leaving. Always face him. Praise him when he has done a good job. Practice every day. 5) No jumping. Even though has is small, this is his Yorkie dominance showing through. Correct and praise when he stops. 6) Teething – This is because his baby teeth are coming out. Use the bitter apple or tabasco sauce on the things he is teething on. Put a little on his tongue so he knows it is bad. Put more on the things he is chewing on. Don’t use too much because he is little. 7) Wee-Wee pads – Remember the Lavender to make the place smell like him. Use watered down vinegar to clean his mistakes on the tile and floor. Use Nature’s Miracle for cushions and rugs. Scatter feed where he has “hard to stop” accidents. Measure his food and set up a feeding schedule. Pick up the food after 30 minutes and only leave him a little water between meals. Create a confined area where he has his bed, food, and a few toys. Fill up the rest of the are with wee-wee pads. Slowly remove the pads as he is only going on them. Always keep the area clean. If needed, get some wee-wee spray to heighten the smell of urine on the pads. 8) Get him used to the leash so you can keep his focus if he is doing something wrong. It is also needed to get him ready for his obedience exercises such as come and walking.

Initial Issues: potty, general — Training Notes: 1) Potty Make sure you are always aware where he is. Never let him out of your sight. Keep him in the crate when you can’t watch. Monitor his food and water. Scatter his kibble on the crate floor and give water at meals and when back from outside. Keep on leash for better control. Normal potty appears to be when wake up, after meals, after excited inside, before bed time, and about every 4 hours. Keep in powder room or laundry room when need to be away a time longer than 5 hrs. Make sure pottys outside and wait a few minutes before come back inside. 2) Use of Leash: Use the leash when inside to direct back to you for potty and focus. Use it when you practice obedience commands. 3) JUMPING: Correct with STAND/GRRR/SQUIRT to not let jump. 4) COME: Practice with leash. Say command once. Direct to you. Shorter or longer distance depending on his focus and “alertness”. 5) SIT: Practice with the leash. You can use your hand motion to assist. Only say command once and then dir4ect down, if needed.

Initial Issues: General puppy training — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME always using the leash. Say the command once and give a little tug to direct and guide. 2) WALK with a loose leash. Don’t be too worried on the form, just that he is walking with you. 3) BARKING – You can correct this with the Stand/Grrr/Squirt or Shake Can 4) JUMPING – You saw how well he got off the sofa with the Stand/Grrr-Shake-Water bottle. 5) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and it always needs to be your idea. 6) Use the Leash as a redirection process, when needed. 7) POTTY – Make sure you manage his food and water. Put them down and then pick up. Leave a little water and manage that. If he starts to potty, cut it back slightly or wait a little bit before putting a little more water when the bowl is empty. Remember what we talked about and you can review the documents on line. 8) PLAY – Try to do most of your crazy play outside. Have the kids stand up when they don’t want to play anymore. They can then stay perfectly still to become uninteresting and then slowly back up. 9) SOCIALIZATION – This is important for puppies. If you see he is nervous about any sight or sound, put a leash on him and introduce it to him slowly with one person holding the leash and focusing him back to them while the other person is in charge of the object or sound. 10) Call as soon as you have questions.

Say the command once and guide him down (no pushing) if needed. Always praise when done for a job well done. 3) WALK. Get the EASY WALK HARNESS to help with the pulling. Remember, he is a tracker. Keep him around your side and practice on both sides so he gets used to both perspectives. Stay off the hot asphalt during the middle of the day. 4) BACK LEASH – Use this technique of letting him get ahead of you and then quickly tug him back if the pulling is becoming an issue. Do not go overboard with the tugging back. 5) BARKING/JUMPING – We saw that the Stand/Grrr/Squirt worked very effectively to stop this behavior and give you respectful focus. Be consistent and always correct and then praise for a job well done. 6) FRONT DOOR – Keep him behind a line and away from the door when you open it for guests. 7) YOUR IDEA – Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and she needs to focus on you for direction and safety. 8) USE A LEASH as a redirection when the Stand/Grrr/Squirt is not effective.

Initial Issues: General Puppy Stuff, nipping — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Say it once and then tug the leash to direct to you. Praise when done. 2) BARKING – Stand/.Grrr/Squirt to direct focus to you and break distraction. 3) Jumping – Same as barking. 4) FRONT DOOR – Create line Jax can not cross when you are answering door. Always face and correct if he approaches line. Praise when person is inside and Jax is back. 5) ALWAYS YOUR IDEA – The boss always tells everyone else what to do. It must always be your idea and not Jax’s. That will assure his focus to you. 6) USE OF LEASH – Click the leash on and step on it when you need to get Jax’s attention and the Stand/Grrr/Squirt is not working or not appropriate at that time. Think of it as your “Correction Plan B”. 7) Get an Easy Walk Harness and click it on Jax so he gets used to it in preparation for walking. Also, click the leash on it. 8) NIPPING – Be aware of things you are doing to adrenalize Jax and cut them off before things escalate. Always stand to start your correction and continue with GRRR and the Squirt.

Initial Issues: Came from Alabama, crazy, doesn’t listen, pees a lot — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say it once and then guide, if needed. Praise when he comes and then stand up. Use the 20 foot leash outside after pottying. Never say COME unless you have the leash or are 100% sure (really sure) he will come. 2) SIT with the leash and regular collar. Guide down, if needed and praise when sits. 3) WALK – First get socialized with leash and Easy Walk Harness. It will take about 2 weeks for him to grow into it. Walk on one side and don’t make a big deal of it. We will work on this next time. 4) NO JUMPING – Use your Stand/Grrr/Squirt to stop this the instant he tries or is thinking about doing it. 5) YOUR IDEA – You are the boss and it is always your idea. Do not let him tell you what to do. You will loose your valuable “I am the leader” focus that is critical to your success. 6) USE THE LEASH to help keep focus on you and always win. Step on the leash and then direct back to you for focus and calm attitude. This should help out with your grand daughter and his nuts time. 7) Limit the water to try and cut back on wee-wee accidents in the house. Use a long (20 ft.) leash outside to allow him freedom to potty but control of his running around.

Initial Issues: Freaful and afraid will turn into aggression — Training Notes: 1) Socialization with Guests: Have Dante in back room when guests arrive. Have them sit and then bring Dante in. Have Dante stop in middle of room and make sure he is calm. Then, bring to sofa. If at any time he starts to bark too much or focus on the guest, redirect him and walk him away until calm and focused on you. Use the leash and MARTINGALE BASKET MUZZLE. Scatter/V feed with his kibble, first you and then your guest. Have guest sit farther away and do not ever move directly towards him. No sudden moves or loud sounds. You can stand dominant, but try to minimize your guests taking a dominant role. You can put him in his crate, if he gets a little too boisterous. You can also take him to other room if you can no longer retain his focus. 2) Put Dante in his crate and have him in the back rook at misc. times during the day to that they don’t mean that anything is about to happen. Let him wear his leash so he gets used to having it on. Look at your web site that we sent you for resources regarding a better crate. You can also find links on Amazon to the muzzle and better walking harness (Easy Walk Harness). 3) Put a sign on the door so that the mail man does not knock. This is an unnecessary distraction at this time. 4) Practice some obedience commands such as COME and SIT while you have him on the leash. This will help you get used to handling him and allow him to give you respectful focus. 5) WALKING – Although this is not a main exercise, you will still need to walk him. Remember our notions of focus on you, redirection, and calming high anxiety. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and you need the focus. Call us as soon as you have questions. General fear takes some time to reverse. Always be sure you are keeping in a position where he feels safe from your sections and presence. Do not push anything or allow him to go to anyone until you are 100% all is fine. Small, persistent, and consistent actions will fix the problem.

Initial Issues: Gentle rescue, hard to walk, bit 2 people during hurricane in orlando. — Training Notes: The most important aspect of your success will be to show Story that you are strong and consistent leaders. Always correct with your Stand/GRRR/Squirt to show her that she is doing something wrong and praise her as soon as she obeys. 1) Practice COME as an obedience exercise for focus. 3) Practice SIT as an obedience command for focus. 4) WALK – Get the Easy Walk Harness and use the regular leash to walk. Pick one side and always walk on that side. Keep her on your side and give slight tugs on the leash to guide and direct. Keep the leash slightly loose but tight enough to allow you to only use your wrist to guide her. Hold the leash with both hands so, if you need to give a bigger tug because she just wants to stop, you can. Slowly walk her a little farther each day until you can get do the dog park. This may take a bit of time and there may be a few set backs. Always tightly manage any dog meetings on the walk. 5) Use your Stand/Grrr/Squirt for bad behavior like jumping and barking. We really didn’t see any of this while I was there. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. This will place focus on you and make your role as leader just that much easier. 7) Use the leash as your “Plan B” to gain respectful focus if the squirt bottle and chain bottle are not working. 8) Set up the boundary for the kitchen when you are cooking and have food out. One person should be the “lookout” and if she starts to approach your boundary, give her a STAND/GRRR/SQUIRT. As soon as she backs off, praise her correct behavior. Never turn your back on her, this means “Never mind, I no longer care”.

Initial Issues: Pit just a little wild. New baby and need to get under control — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME on the leash. Only say once and give slight tug to come to you. Praise when done. After doing well with 6 ft. leash inside, make it longer. Then, go outside and repeat. Eventually, just drop leash. 2) SIT with the leash. If he doesn’t sit, tug back slightly on leash while guiding hind quarters down to ground. Let gravity do the work. Stand/GRRR/Squirt for jumping. You can also use the leash for redirection if on furniture. 4) FRONT DOOR – Create boundary and keep him behind it when you are opening the front door. He needs to remain behind boundary until the door is finally closed. Always face him/ 5) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and you are the one with all the ideas. This will make him focus on you and wait for your next direction. 6) Have the leash on him when you are home. If he starts to get a little crazy, step on the leash while remaining calm and collected. If needed, pick up the leash and calmly move him away from the distraction. When he is calm, praise him because he is no longer breaking your rule. You can drop the leash and go about your business. 7) GREETING BABY – You come in with Anthony and prepare yourself on the sofa. Now, bring Nikko in from the outside or another room. Move slowly and stay quiet. Walk around for a bit, never approaching Anthony. If Nikko gets a little active, calmly correct him and direct him away for a moment. Bring him back. Initially, if possible, sit on the other sofa with Nikko giving you focus. After a while, which may be days, slowly allow Nikko to get closer to Anthony. Always have the leash in hand and always have someone between Anthony and Nikko. You can also practice having a “Fake Anthony” with his blanket or other “smelly things” you can hold and see how Nikko reacts.

Initial Issues: puppy, potty, barking, leash control, separation anxiety, respect — Training Notes: 1) POTTY – Read the docs to review our discussion. Have on leash when at friends to better observe. Manage water and always watch. Measure food and feed at specific times. 2) SEPARATION ANXIETY – Have near you and then get up and go to door. Turn around and come back. When not following, go to door and jiggle door handle. Go back and sit down. When not paying attention, continue by going out door and come right back. When not paying attention, stay out longer. If needed, correct if he starts to get mouthy. Have dorm mate make noise outside and correct, if needed. That involves opening the door and performing the Stand/Grrrr/Squirt to redirect to calm. Also, understand your “leaving routine” and break it up to confuse Percy. Do one or two items and then just stop. Do all of them and sit down. Do none of them and leave. Keep your actions slow and deliberate so you can easily define success and have the ability to move on. 3) WALKING – Use the 6 foot leash in the hallway. Let him be on one side with a little slack in the leash. Slightly tug on the leash to guide him back to you if he pulls. Turn around if he is pulling too much. Get the Easy Walk Harness to better control. Practice this several times a day for a few minutes at a time. 4) DEFINE YOUR RULES and correct immediately when he breaks them. Always remember to guide to the right thing and then praise him for success. 5) Practice COME with the leash as a simple behavior exercise. ===> BOSS THE PET CONNECTION has vaccine days that may help with your expenses.

Initial Issues: Branco (puppy) going after Koby. General Puppy and obedience, walking together, Stay, gen’l obedience, focus — Training Notes: 1) COME only with the leash. Say once and guide, if needed. Never say COME without leash unless you are 100% sure they will come. 2) SIT with the leash. They are pretty good, practice until you never need to correct and guide. 3) STAY is after they always sit. After you put them in a SIT, hold out your hand and say STAY. Keep your hand out and move around the room. Always face them. If you leave their sight, they will probably break the stay. 4) WALK with the Easy Walk Harness. Walk on short leash on one side. Go at your pace, change directions and stop from time to time. This keeps focus on you. If you come to another dog/person that will cause them distraction, move away and stop. Have them sit and give you focus. If they are still focused on the dog/person, move farther away. As they get used to that distraction, you can start to stay closer and eventually walk right pass. They both have to get a little closer to the same size before walking together will be successful. 5) BARKING/JUMPING – Use your Stand/SHHHHHH/Squirt to get their focus. You can also use the leash to redirect away to a place they can give you focus. 6) FRONT DOOR – Always face them and correct as they approach the line you do not want them to cross. Keep them back as you let the person in and do not praise them until the door is closed. They can not cross the perimeter line until the door is closed. 7) Always make sure that you go through the doorway first and then you can allow them to follow you. 8) Always make sure it is your idea. 9) Use the leash as a passive redirection go make sure you can always get their focus when they are doing anything inappropriate and you must teach them the right thing.

Initial Issues: Doesn’t come, not listening, easily distracted, needs more focus, steals stuff and mouthy, no jumping — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say once and give slight tug, if needed. 2) SIT on the leash. This is great at end of leash redirection and walking. 3) Barking & Jumping – The Stand/Grrr/Shake can be tried, but we saw that the redirection with the leash and walking calmly in to the other room, having her sit, and calmly dropping the leash with praise was best. 4) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and it must be your idea. 5) Use the leash to redirect when she starts to get adrenalized and is about to or actually breaking your rules. Lead calmly into other room. Observe that she is calm. Have her sit. Praise her quietly. Drop the leash as your walk into the other room slowly and calmly. Get a 6 foot leash to add to your short leash so you have something to step on. 6) YOU always go through the door first. This is because you are the leader and she should observe you leading. It also allows you to check out what is going on in the other room to see if you need to prepare for anything. 7) WALKING. Use the short and 6 foot leashes to walk. Always go through doorways first. When outside, watch for distractions. Move off from them, have her focus on you, and let them pass. You can slowly engage the distractions as you can more easily gain/regain her focus and keep her calm. If someone wants to come up to Juno, don’t allow that for at least a few weeks. When she is calm and collected outside and someone wants to greet her, have them stand tall and still about 10 feet away. You and Juno then approach. You watch to see if Juno is getting adrenalized and correct. If she is too crazy, stop. ===> Remove the bed if she still potties on it. A little low sodium chicken broth on her food and toys to make them tastier. Hot sauce to discourage chewing/stealing.

Initial Issues: lunges at people, friendly/jumpy, pulls on walks, makes her nervous, no jumping, potty in bed room and some chewing — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash only. Stoop down and call them to you. Give a slight tug, if needed. Praise when done. 2) SIT on the leash. This can be done as a straight obedience or tandem with the leash redirection process or during a walk. Praise when done. 3) WALK. Use the Easy Walk Harness and walk one at a time. Keep close to you and always make sure you have their focus. Stop, turn around, have them sit, and change your pace to make sure they understand that you are the boss and you are “driving”. Move away before they start to focus and adrenalize as other dogs/things appear. You can continue to move away from the path of the oncoming person/thing until you can easily get their focus and they are calm. Over time, you will not have to move as far away. Always be aware of everything going on in the area. You are the boss and it is your responsibility to keep them safe, period. 4) Barking/Jumping – This is normally inside the house and can be done with the correction (stand/grrr/squirt) or redirection of the leash. 5) FOLLOW THRU THE DOOR – The leader always leads and you need to go through the door first. Put them in a wait or sit and move through the door. Then, invite them in as well. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and they need to focus on you for what to do next. 7) LEASH REDIRECT- If the correction (stand/grrr/squirt) isn’t being effective, use the leash to redirect to get focus and to maintain your rules. Have the leash on them at different times during the day. If they start to act up, step on the leash while you remain calm. Pick up the leash and calmly guide them away until they are respectfully focused on you. If you want, tell them to sit. Now, praise them and simply drop the leash and slowly move away.8) They don’t need beds if they chew them up.

Initial Issues: Counter surf, come, jump, crate, ged, off, walk, respect, doesn’t listen — Training Notes: 1) COME only on the leash. Extend the distance as she comes all the time from a specific distance. 2) Sit with the leash and guide down, if needed. 3) WALK with the Easy Walk (attached to collar while it is too big). Always by your side on a short but not tight leash. Give a slight tug to gain attention. Practice in outside hall by your condo. 4) JUMPING Stand/grrr/squirt or put your foot on the leash. This should do the trick. 5) FOLLOW THRU THE DOOR – You should always go though the door first before her. You are the leader. If she starts to push ahead, guide her back and put her in a sit. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss. 7) Use the leash to maintain focus when you need to tell her she is doing something wrong. Think of this as a “Plan B” to the Stand/grrr/squirt. 8) COUNTER SURF. Put some food out and then step slightly away. When she starts for it, correct and praise when she backs off. If needed, you can use the leash to redirect if she is a little too crazy. 8) CRATE. First slowly guide her in the crate by putting her food closer and closer to the door and finally inside the crate. When she is good in going in the crate for the food, slowly start closing the door for just a second and then extend it to several minutes. All this time you are right there. When she is good with that, you close the door and slowly move to parts farther and farther away. This process can take several weeks. Do not rush it.

Initial Issues: Potty and Chewing, Nibble, Jumps — Training Notes: 1) POTTY – Use the Wee Wee pads. Create an enclosed zone where you an put his crate with bed, food, and toys inside. Cover the rest of the area with wee wee pads. Slowly pick up the pads over a few weeks. Start near the crate and move out. Don’t rush it. Try to allow the wee wee pads to remain as long as possible after he potties on them. Only have him with you and in your vision when he is outside of his happy place. Measure and manage his food and water. Read the written documentation. 2) NO JUMPING – Always stand, make your sound, and possibly give him a little squirt, shake, or clap to have him stop. 3) USE THE LEASH – You can use the leash to maintain his focus through redirection. It is also important to get him socialized with it for walking. Pick up the leash and guide him by you for a few steps and then drop the leash. 4) ALWAYS MAKE SURE IT IS YOUR IDEA – The boss is the one who tells everyone what to do and you need to be the boss to keep his focus so you can easily direct him to the right decisions.

Initial Issues: Biting, jumping on people, jumping on furniture, runs out door, not listening — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say once and then guide if needed. Praise when he comes to you. Stand up when you are done. 2) SIT on the leash. Show and guide down, if needed. Praise when done and he does a good job. 3) STAY – You can only start this when he has mastered the SIT and you only have to say it once and he sits right down. Now say STAY and hold your hand out. Start close to him and as he stays, slowly move back. Correct him as soon as he moves. Praise him when he stays. Take your time and don’t rush this exercise. ===> Say your commands only once. Always correct if they are doing something wrong. Remember, this is one of your jobs as the teacher. Praise when he does the right thing. This will help to reinforce the correct behavior in a calm and focused manner.

Initial Issues: Fighting with other dogs, dog aggressive, walking, jumping, barking — Training Notes: 1) WALK with the Easy Walk Harness. Take shorter walks and keep him by your side. Give a little tug to correct and focus back to you. Turn around to make sure he knows you are the one directing the walk. 2) BACK LEASH – This is part of the walk. If he is a little too frisky, let him go to the end of the leash. The moment he reaches the end, give the leash a slight tug to get him to look back to you. Change direction and have him get back to your side. Stop and give him breaks when YOU want to. 3) BARKING – Although he didn’t really do much barking today, use your correction of Stand/Sound/Passive Physical Correction to get his focus. You can also use the redirection of the leash. 4) JUMPING – This is the same as the barking. 5) FRONT DOOR – The important thing is to always face him and understand that your main goal is to keep him safe by having him stay away from the open door when you are there. If he passes your “safety boundary”, correct him and guide him back. Always praise for a good job. 6) Make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and it must be your idea to maintain respectful focus. 7) Use the leash as a way to passively direct him away from the bad behavior to a calm and focused state you can praise.

Initial Issues: aggression towards other people , not pay attention, barking, being dominant, from rescue — Training Notes: 1) Always make sure you are in control when people are coming into the house. The use of the leash is the major focus here. If Louie starts to focus and bark at the person, pick up the leash and direct him into another area until he is quiet and focused on you. Tell him “Good Boy”, calmly drop the leash, and return to the room. Keeping calm and controlled focus is critical to your success and self confidence. 2) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and you give the rules. As I mentioned at our session, make sure your rules are simple and consistent. 3) Practice COME on the leash. Only say it once and then guide, if needed. Praise when he reaches you and then stand up. 4) Barking & Jumping: These are part of the “control when people come over” routine. They are the “Louie is breaking my rule and it is now time to redirect/correct. Direct away until he is calm and focused on you and then praise to affirm the appropriate behavior. Remember that simply using your body language (stand up) can often take care of these issues too. If needed, you can add the correction sound and shake bottle/squirt bottle. We did not use the bottles because I normally try to avoid that with small, rescue dogs unless specifically necessary.

Initial Issues: puppy training, nips, bites, basic commands, not listening, jumpijng — Training Notes: 1) No Barking or Jumping – Use your Correction of Stand/Grrr/Squirt or the redirection to get Bailey’s attention and termination of the inappropriate behavior. Remember, you can use the squirt bottle, the chain in the bottle, or the hand clap interchangeably as the passive physical correction of the communication process. 2) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and the only way Bailey will give you continual focus is by understanding that all commands come from you. 3) Use the lease to maintain your focus and as a redirective tool for correction. Stand on the leash and then pick it up and move him away until he is focused on you. Praise him and then drop the leash. You will first have to socialize him with the leash so that he is not afraid of it. Have the collar on him with the leash attached for longer and longer each day until it becomes a “non-event” for him. This is when more obedience commands can be started. 4) Potty – watch him and manage the water. 5) Nipping – Stand/Grrr/Squirt or use the hot sauce and a redirective toy to get him to understand that he would rather do something you want him to do than something you do not want him to do (nipping).

Initial Issues: Potty Training, nipping, separation anxiety, come, sit — Training Notes: 1) POTTY: Have carpets cleaned and then use Lavender Fabuloso and other lavender cleaning products. Use Lavender Shampoo on Gracie. Use Natures Miracle on porous materials where she pottied. Measure the food and only give that much. Put food down and pick up. A little of managed water between meals. Build fenced in area for potty training. All Wee-wee pads except for area with bed, food, and toys. Slowly pickup pads as she continues to go on them. Keep this slow. Have her out with you only when you can actively watch her. 2) Separation Anxiety: Have her near front of crate with you. Then coax her into the crate but never force her into the crate. Once OK in the crate, close the door and open it with you right there. Close the door longer and longer. Now, close door and move away and sit down. Next, move towards other side of room. Next, move out of sight. Next shake the door nob like you are leaving. Next, Open and leave door. Never move too fast. If she gets too anxious, move back one step. You can also stand and make your correction sound to assure her you are the leader keeping her safe. Most important, take your time. Learning not to be afraid when you are not there is all on her schedule. 3) Barking / Jumping: Use your body language of calm standing and vocal of GRRR and possibly passive physical of squirt to stop this. 4) Make sure that everything is always your idea. You are the boss and you need her focus to show and guide to the right decisions. 5) Nipping: Use your Stand/Grrr/Squirt to take care of this. Never become excited or overly active when she starts to nip because that can often be interpreted as the start of active play. She will just nip more. 6) Lease: First, get her used to the leash by having the harness and a 6 foot leash on her at different times during the day. Start with the harness only on and off for several days. Then, start to all the leash. The goal is to have her pay no attention to them. Once this is accomplished, you can use the leash as a redirection if she starts to do something wrong. You also need her used to the leash to teach her Come and Stay. This is because you will give her a slight tug on the leash to guide her for Come and a slight twerk on the leash to encourage sit.

Initial Issues: Front door, not listening, separation anxiety, barking, coming, jumping,socialization — Training Notes: 1) COME – Use the leash to direct towards you if she doesn’t come as soon as you command. Praise her when she gets to you. Stand up when done. 2) WALK – Get a 6 foot “regular” leash and have her walk by your side. Don’t give her enough leash to wander away. Tug the leash slightly to get her back to you and focus on you. 3) Back Leash – This is if she is pulling a lot. Let her walk out to the end of the leash ahead of you. Just as she reaches the end of the leash and it begins to get tight, give the leash a quick tug to direct her back to you. 4) Barking – Use your correction of Stand/GRRR/Squirt to get her attention back to you and away from the distraction causing the baking. You can also use the leash to redirect her attention back to you. 5) Jumping – The correction of Stand/Grrr/Squirt normally is very effective. Remember that you must always correct every (and I mean every) time she jumps or starts to jump. 6) Front Door: Keep her behind a boundary line when you go to open the door. She can do whatever she wants to do behind the line until the person is inside and your “boundary line” rule has been successfully obeyed. Then you can see if she is breaking another rule like barking, etc. 7) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and you are the on giving out the rules. That will also help keep focus on you. 8) Use the leash for your exercises and also have it on her at different times so you can easily step on it and redirect her focus back to you, if needed. 9) Socialize outside with people and places. 10) Separation Anxiety: Start being downstairs with her. Slowly move away in small increments at a pace where she will be ok with each, new increment. If needed, give her a slight correction to let her know all is ok and she doesn’t need to become nervous on your departure. Take small steps and consult with us if you have any questions. This is a hard thing to fix because there are many, small steps.

Initial Issues: Pulls on leash, Jumping on people, Terrrified to get in car — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say the command once and then direct with the leash. Praise and stand up. 2) WALK with the Easy Walk and short leash. Always maintain her focus. Stop often to make sure she is focused on you. Pick one side to walk on. Don’t walk too far if you and/or she are getting tired. The quality of the walk is far more important than the length. The length will get there when the quality has been achieved. 3) Use the BACK LEASH method if she is pulling on the walk too much. Let her all the way to the end of the leash and then give it a slight tug so she stops and focuses back to you. 4) JUMPING can be stopped with the correction (Stand/GRRR/Squirt) or redirection (Foot on leash and then direct away). 5) The FRONT DOOR – She needs to stay away from the door when you open it. Always face her and correct her to get her back. Do not let her approach until the door is finally closed. Praise for a good job. 6) She must always FOLLOW YOU THROUGH THE DOOR when you start or end a walk or even just go outside in the back yard. You are the leader and you must always lead. 7) It must always be YOUR IDEA. 8) Have the leash on her to make sure you are always in control. Have it on and off so it becomes an almost invisible training tool. 9) GETTING IN THE CAR should be a non-event. Start by walking her on a leach by the open car door. Then you can approach the car door with her. You could give her a treat if you want. Then you can sit inside the car while she is outside. Next, invite her in the car with you with the door open. After that is all good, close the car door. You can then start the engine and back to the end of the driveway and pull back in. After that, take her for a ride to fun places. All of this could take several weeks to accomplish. Do not rush her fear. Let her understand that the car is a nice place.

Initial Issues: Nervous with people coming in, nervous in public — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME with the leash. Say the command once and then guide with that leash to you. Praise for a good job. 2) Practice SIT. You may want a leash to help guide down, if needed. It appears that your hand gestures are effective. 3) Always make sure that everything is your idea. The Boss is always the one with the idea and the one who is telling everyone else what to do. This is important that you maintain this dynamic. 4) Use the LEASH. Put it on her at different times during the day and let her walk around with it. If you need to get her and direct her attention, step on the leash and guide her focus to you. You may need to walk her to a quiet place to get complete focus. Have her do something when is calm and obeying your rules to assure that she is submitting. Having her Sit is always a good, simple request. 5) Practice the Front Door by creating a boundary and not letting him cross. Correct to keep back and then open the door. Always face to maintain focus and dominance. 6) The “Scared of People in the House” is a longer process to address. You must take small steps from a point where Heidi feels safe to a point where she is just a little questioning. First, have people come in the house while she is in the crate. Have them sit down in a chair in the corner of the room and stay still “and uninteresting”. Now, one of you will open the crate and bring Heidi out of the crate on a leash. The other will be sitting (for example) on the sofa. Walk Heidi through the kitchen slowly always watching her for any undue focus on the guest or any sign of nervousness. If you see any of these, stop and have her focus on you. Slowly walk around the kitchen center isle and into the family room. Stop and let Heidi “take it all in” If she starts to bark, back her off. If she is fine, continue slowly, one step at a time, until you are at the sofa with her. You can then sit with her. If she starts to become nervous or bark, walk her back into the kitchen and regain her focus. You can use treats as a tool to help keep focus on you. Just don’t use too many. If she gets to agitated, place her back in the crate for ten to twenty minutes and then try it again. Only this time, you may only go and stop at the far end of the kitchen center isle where she can see into the family room, but you are still the main focus. These are all small steps with the only goal of having her give you respectful focus while guests are there. Always remember that success is slowly advancing the threshold of where you can teach and where she can learn. As I mentioned today, this will probably take several months to completely correct.

Initial Issues: Aggressive towards brother who teases her and food aggressive — Training Notes: 1) Have Pelu on the leash as much as possible when you are home. Someone must always be “in charge” of Pelu and the leash. This is Pelu’s “teacher and caregiver”. If Pelu starts to go towards Alex or gets to focused on Alex, direct Pelu away and regain her focus. You may have to walk into the other room. Have her respectfully submit to you by having her do something very simple you have commanded. A SIT is always a simple thing to do. Continue this until Pelu is giving you focus most of the time. This will show that you are now her leader and she is more interested on focusing on you to see what she needs to do next than “attack Alex” or do something that will break your rules. 2) When Pelu is totally focused on you, the care giver and teacher,(and not Alex), you can have Alex V-Feed Pelu. You have Pelu on a leash about 10 feed away from Alex who is standing and has some dog food in his hand. He will toss (calmly and gently) some food in front of Pelu and to her left. When she goes to eat the food, Alex waits a moment and then tosses some food in front of her and to her right. He continues this, slowly decreasing the distance of the toss. If Pelu reaches a point where she begins to appear nervous or agitated, stop for the day. Continue until Alex can toss the food only a few feet away. Once Pelu is close, start to toss the food farther away to back her up to her starting point. 3) Only fed Pelu in her bowl. Have the bowl in a place that can be “exclusively Pelu’s”. 4) Walk Pelu on a short leash, always looking out for anything that could make her jump or bolt. Plan for what you will do if and when those events unfold and proactively enact your plan. You need to always keep her safe and appropriate planning and implementation will show Pelu that “you have her back”. 5) Use the leash to guide Pelu and always maintain her focus. 6) Always make sure that “it is your idea”. You must be the one telling Pelu what to do; not the other way around. Remember, the boss tells the rest what to do. You are the boss. 7) Step on the leash of use the squirt bottle to stop Pelu’s jumping. If needed, direct her away to focus on you. 8) Practice the SIT as an activity where Pelu must focus on you and comply with your request. 9) Practice COME by having Pelu on a leash. You step to the end of the leash, go down low (you do not have to sit on the ground) and call her to you. If needed, give a slight tug on the leash. Praise her when she comes. 10) Remember, Pelu needs consistency. EVERYONE must follow thr rules you establish. This is critical.

Initial Issues: Crazy, does not respect them, needs focus, barks at people coming in the house — Training Notes: 1) COME only on the leash. Extend the distance as he always starts to come to you. Only say “Come” once and then give a slight tug to guide to you. Praise and stand up. 2) BARKING can be corrected with the Stand/Grr/Squirt correction or the redirection with the leash until he is calm and focused. 3) JUMPING can be corrected quickly with the Stand/Grr/Squirt. You can also stand on the leash to not allow him to physically jump. 4) FRONT DOOR – Create a boundary and do not allow him to cross when you are answering the front door. Always face him and correct to stay behind the boundary. Praise when you are done and the person is inside. If he is barking, you can now deal with that issue. Always make sure you have his focus. 5) You are the boss. Always make sure it is your idea. 6) Use the leash to easily get his focus. This is your Plan B if the Stand/Grrr/Squirt is not effective at the moment. 7) Think about getting an Easy Walk Harness for walking. This will help with pulling and focus.

Initial Issues: Aggression, Pulls, Jumps on People, Food Aggressive, Come — Training Notes: 1) Practice COME only when you have the leash in hand. If he doesn’t listen, give a slight tug and direct him to you. Praise him for a good job and then stand up to end the exercise. 2) BARKING and JUMPING can be corrected with either the STAND/SOUND/SQUIRT correction or the LEASH redirection. Your goal is to have him stop and look at you. “So, what do you want, Sir?” is the result you need to require. With the leash, you may need to talk into the other room to get the calm and respectful focus. 3) You must always make sure that you deal with Marco in terms of YOUR IDEA. You are the boss and everything must be on your terms. Do not let Marco tell you what to do. 4) USE OF THE LEASE is important to help with the correction if the STAND/SOUND/SQUIRT isn’t working. Have it on him during the day when you are home. Put it on him and take it off him so the event of having it on or off is no big deal. When needed, calmly step on the leash and direct him to you until he is calm and focused. 5) All PLAY, for the foreseeable future, will be done outside as to keep the inside a calm and focused place for learning and respect. 6) When feeding, both need to be home to make sure one can control. If not, put him outside and then put the food bowls down, then, let him in. 7) SOFA. You sit down on the sofa and then have Marco come in on a leash and sit on the floor on the other side of the sofa. Be calm and stand up and walk out of the room and return. Stand up, walk out of the room and then walk to the other entrance where he can see you. Calmly stop for a moment and then walk back through the living room out of site and them back to the other side of the sofa. After Marco shows no intention of getting on the sofa, he can be invited up as long as he does not focus on you too much. If he does, back to the floor. Eventually let him come over to you as you stay calm and still. Do not pet him. 8) Use the harness to walk him and hook the leash to the chest hook on the harness. This will allow you to redirect him easily back to you if he starts to pull. Also, keep people at a distance, even if they want to see Marco. Slowly, over days, allow the neighbor and Marco to get closer. — This is not a race; it is a process. Take your time and observe Marco’s body language. He is always talking to you if you just look. Understand what you have the ability to teach and he has the ability to learn each and every day.

Initial Issues: Basic Skills — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash. Say the command only once and then guide him to you. Praise him when he gets to you and stand up to finish the exercise. 2) SIT with the leash. If needed, show and guide him down to a sit and praise when complete. 3) STAY can be performed after they can SIT the first time and every time you give the command. Once they are sitting, Say STAY and hold your hand out. Pause for a moment and them praise if they haven’t moved. You can then extend the exercise by backing up and moving around the room. 4) Keep they back from the FRONT DOOR when you are answering the door. Always face them and correct them if they start to approach a perimeter you have established for them. Praise them when the person is inside and they have remained behind the perimeter. 5) Practice the POTTY information we discussed today. You can also go on the personal web site you will be given and get the entire documentation for review, download, or printing.

Initial Issues: Chewing, Crazy, Biting, House Training, Jumping chews baseboards, separation anxiety/crate, attention seeking, counter surfing — Training Notes: 1) COME on the leash only. Say the command once and then guide, if needed. 2) SIT on the leash only. Tug up slightly on leash if he doesn’t sit to show and guide down. Always remember to say Good Puppy. 3) Stop Barking with Correction ( Stand/GRRR/Squirt) or Redirection (with the leash). 4) NO JUMPING often works best with the water bottle. Stand/Grrr/Squirt normally stops them in their tracks and has them stop and look at you. You can also put your foot on the leash and they can’t jump. Always stay calm and praise him when he has obeyed. 5) FRONT DOOR – Create a boundary where Harry needs to remain while you open the front door. Correct if he starts to cross and always face him. If he is barking or jumping behind the boundary, that is OK. You can correct that after the guest is inside and he has finished the Door Exercise. 6) Always make sure it is YOUR IDEA You are THE BOSS and everything starts with your idea. 7) The LEASH can be used to redirect him as an alternative teaching correction from the Stand/Grrr/Squirt. Calmly step on the leash and then direct him towards you and away from whatever is causing the issue. When i.e. is focused and calm, praise and drop the leash. 8) POTTY can be found in the documentation, but the two big things we discussed were (a) always watch him so he can’t wander off to do his business and you can see what is really happening and (b) put the food and water down and then pick them up. Leave him a little water for hydration only. 9) KITCHEN COUNTER SURFING – Create a boundary where he can’t cross when you have food on the kitchen counter. If he crosses or attempts to cross, correct and draw him back. Always stay calm and face him. 11) TABLE/MEAL TIME – Create a boundary where he can not cross when you are eating. If he starts to approach that boundary, Stand/ GRRR/ SQUIRT him back behind the boundary. You can also redirect him with and object to his bed during meal time. 11) CRATE ANXIETY – You need to make him believe that the crate is just another great place to be in whenever you want him to be in there. Start by having the crate in a place with the rest of the family. Guide him in the crate with the door open. If he wanders out, that is OK. Continue to do this and feed him or put his favorite things in the crate. Next, sit down in front of the crate and engage him in play while he is in the crate. Next. close the door to the crate while you are still sitting next to the crate. Next, move to the end of the room. Finally, step out of the room and come right bac. Continue the “out of sight” until you don’t have to return. Always stay calm, don’t rush it, and never be afraid to step back a step or two if you went too fast.

Initial Issues: Not listening, chewing stuff up, destroying everything, very stubborn, eats water hoses, very friendly — Training Notes: 1) Come on the leash only. Say the command once and then give slight tug to direct. Never say COME without the leash in your hand it you aren’t 100% sure she will walk over to you. 2) Sit on the leash. Do this after a short walk as a way to confirm focus, respect, and obedience. 3) Walk with the leash for about 20 feet. Then stop and sit. This is to affirm your leadership and focus from Mimi. 4) Stop Barking with the Stand/Grrr/Shake or redirection with the leash. Praise as soon as she obeys. 5) NO JUMPING. This appears to be one of Mimi’s favorite little activities. Be proactive and correct as she is about to do it. Stand/Grrr/Squirt -or- Shake. Step on the leash to not physically allow her to jump. 6) Always make sure it is your idea. The leader always has the ideas and the followers always focus on the leader and obey their commands. Do not let her tell you what to do. This can be as simple as asking for a pat on the head. If she asked you to do it, don’t. You tell her what you want her to do. 7) Use the leash to redirect and always have the ability to passively and ultimately control her and direct her. 8) Start your practice of obeying your rules outside when you are there. Always correct in the moment. Remove or minimize items that provide abundant negative stimulus (like the plastic blocks behind the jet ski trailer wheels. When she has been doing fine for about a week, start going inside for short periods of time. Always watch out so you can jump out and correct if she is doing something wrong. This will create a “he must always be there even if I don’t see him” and will decrease her tendency for misbehaving. ===> Get some leashes or training leads.

Initial Issues: New lab puppy — Training Notes: > The most important thing to remember is not to go crazy and always stand tall (don’t bend over) when you are telling Jameson that he is doing something wrong. You must always correct in a non-adrenalized manner with the one goal (and only goal) to get his respectful focus. That changes everything and will put the “leader cap” firmly on your heads. 1) Practice Come on the leash. This is a great “starter obedience exercise” and will also enforce his focus on you. 2) NO BARKING – use your stand/grrr/squirt or redirection to make this happen. 3) NO JUMPING – This is pretty much the same as the no barking. Jamison seems to do both of these at the same time. 4) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss. %) Use the leash for redirection and as a “plan b” to your correction program. Have it on and off. Simply step on it and direct him away from the inappropriate distraction and associated bad behavior. 6) Get hot sauces for the chewing 7) Block off the areas such as the entertainment center, behind the tree and speaker, etc. so he can’t use them as dens and places he can “chew bad things”. 8) Make sure he has a “chew object” for his teething. This can be the deer antler with low sodium chicken broth or the Kong Toy with frozen peanut butter inside. ===> Call as soon as you have any questions.

Initial Issues: Puppy, First Dog, nips feet, nudging, likes to grab pants, wants attention — Training Notes: 1) COME with the leash. Get down low, say COME once and then tug the leash slightly to have him come to you. Take the slack of the leash up as he approaches. Say Good boy when he arrives and stand up. Don’t practice for more than 5 minutes at a time. 2) Continue to work on the SIT with the leash until he will always sit the first time and remain down and still for five seconds. If needed, passively guide him down by pulling the leash back slightly and guiding his rear down with your hand ever so slightly. 3) After he has mastered the SIT, you can continue to STAY. Once he is sitting for about 3 to 5 seconds, say STAY and hold your hand out like a traffic cop. Continue to have him stay for about 5 seconds and then praise. Next, do this and then step in front of him for about 5 more seconds with your hand out. Praise him. Once he can do this; and it may take several days to a week or so; step back several feet while facing him and holding your hand up. Stop once you have reached your distance and pause for several seconds. Then return to him and praise him. Once this is working, go 90 degrees to his right and then 90 degrees to his left. This will make him look at you moving around in front of him. Always return to his side and praise for a good job. Finally, when all this is working, go completely around him and return to his side. Always praise for a good job. If he moves in any of these exercises, return and start again. 4) BARKING and JUMPING can be taken care of with the Stand/GRRR/Squirt and/or leash redirection 5) Always make sure it is your idea. You are the boss and it needs to be your idea for him to need to focus on you and your wishes. 6) Use the leash to redirect him to a calm and focused state. This can be used in stead of or in conjunction with the correction of Stand/Grrr/Squirt. 7) Practice the back door exercise by having him on the long leash with one person while the other is at th door. Always face him and always have your hand on the door handle. Open slowly and correct if he starts to approach. The rule is “stay away from the door” and if he is not breaking it and staying away, continue to slowly open the door and step out while always facing him. When you come inside, look to see where he is through the glass and slowly open the door if he is far enough away. Use the squirt bottle to enter and keep him back. ===> Keep things simple, stay calm, stand tall, always stay in control.

Get the kids feeling OK with Whiskey. This is done slowly in a multi-step process. 1) Have Whiskey on leash and kids standing still at front garage with food in pockets. 2) Kids stay still as you walk Whiskey towards them, but not directly. Back off and then slightly approach. 3) Kids stay still and have kids drop food in front of Whiskey while they stand tall. Over time, have them toss food closer to themselves. 4) Have Whiskey stable as kids walk by at a glancing distance. They stop, drop food, Whiskey eats, and they walk back to where they started. 5) Now, kids stand still at front of garage and Whiskey walks between them to driveway and back. They are standing still entire time. 6) Next, as Whiskey is walking back into garage, one walks next to you and him back to the back of the garage (horizontally, at a slight distance). 7) Building on step 3, when they feel safe and can drop food right in front of them, lower their hand to allow Whiskey to lick. Always make sure you are in control of Whiskey and the kids feel safe. If not, slow down or stop for the day.

Say sit and then guide down buy pulling up slightly on leash to maintain her posture and your hand to guide her rear to the ground. Once she sits perfectly every time, start with the “Stay” command. 3) Focus her back to you with the leash when you are walking and she gets excited with other dogs and people. You can move back to the grass or even behind a hedge or car to break the visual for a moment. The big thing is the “Look at me”.

OTHER DOGS: 1) Be prepared with the spray bottle. 2) When you introduce, have one dog sit and stay while the other dog passes at a reasonable distance. After the other dog gets about fifty feet away, turn around and come back, passing and going 50 feet away again. Repeat several times. 3) Now, have one dog stable and seated while the other dog circles the stable dog. 4) If either dog becomes too focused on the other, correct with the spray (in front of the dog) with a warning correction and slight tug on the leash. You want to regain that dog’s focus. 5) Switch dogs so each “gets a turn”. You can try to calm Berry down with Rescue Remedy.

Get the Easy Walk Harness (probably a medium) 1) Correct always 2) Potty – If he does not potty, contain him in the crate and then take him out again. If you have to go out (leave), he must be contained so he can’t just wander anywhere and potty. Always be watching him. 3) When you are brushing him and he starts to nip or break your rules, correct. 4) have him sit at the door when you are going out so he doesn’t just shoot out.

1) Walking: Keep it slow with small steps outside. First, only to 1/2 way down walk and let Midnight check things out. Then go more with clear points of success. Always let Midnight say it is OK. Make the walk more like “I like it outside”. When she starts to become distracted and fearful, time to come inside. It you don’t have time, just potty and do the walk later. 2) Come on the leash. Make sure you go down low when you do the command. 3) Let het meet people on her terms, when you are there to allow her to get focus and casual approval from you. 4) The the EASY WALK to help with the pulling issue.

1) Walking – Always be in control and anticipate everything that might happen. This will give you a sense of self confidence that Nali will feel and respect. Keep it slow and always be prepared to move away from high adrenalized situations. 2) Continue the COME on the leash. Switch off so both of you have Nali COME to you. After a while, you can try unclicking the leash in a very passive way so that she doesn’t notice. If she does not obey, the leash goes back on. Also break up the COME practice with the leash so that it is haphazard with less anticipation on her part.

1) Pottying going well – take out more often when when is out and drinking more freely available water. 2) Come only on the leash. Every time you say “come”, she must get to you. Give her a tug on the leash to guide her towards you. 3) Front Door. Set up a boundary of where she can not be when you are opening the front door or coming in the front door. Always face her and use the water bottle and your correction sound to teach her to stay back. Praise when you are in and the door is closed. You might want to keep a water bottle just inside and just outside the front door. 4) Walking – Just go one house up and them back. Keep her around your side and use a slight hand movement (flip/tug) to guide her in your direction. 5) Continue to work with the SIT so we can work on the STAY next time. Remember, make sure it is your idea and work for a few minutes at a time several times a day with her.

1) Outside – Use the leash to catch. Don’t go crazy and simply walk to the end of the Leah and step on it. Pick it up in your hand and say COME. Now, say Walk and take him calmly into the house. Praise when inside. 2) Door- Always face him as you approach door. Use the squirt bottle and your sound to keep him behind your boundary. Make sure that you always set yourself up as consistently leaving, even if you have trash or other things in your hand. 3) Come – Always do it on the leash. Say it once. 4) Nipping, you can stop by either a) keep hands away b) correct if he starts to approach your hand with his mouth c) use bitter apple or tabasco on your hands. 5) Crazy in house – Use the leash and calmly step on it to redirect him and calm him. 6) Walking – Use the Easy Walk. Walk him on one side, slightly tugging (redirecting) him back to you if he wanders too far or looses focus on you. Stop from time to time just to let him know who is walking who. 7) Sit – Always have the leash on. Say it once. If he doesn’t do it, correct and then say SIT again. Now, use the leash to direct him back and slightly up. This will get him moving backwards and change his center of gravity to behind his rear legs. At the same time, direct his rear down and back (no pushing down) into a sit position. It he is just too hyper, hold off on this exercise until later in the day. Practice everything in small intervals during the day.

1) Use the leash to control and direct inside. The hot sauce on the leash could also help. 2) Always stand up to correct. Remember that Wrex focuses on body language first. 3) Practice the come and sit with the leash, if needed. You always need to remember that you need to teach where Wrex has the ability to learn and you have the ability to teach. If he doesn’t respond to your command, you need to show and guide. 4) Use the harness (tight) and hot sauce when walking. Wrex really seemed to respond to that. 5) Always face Wrex when you are going through the door. If needed, use the leash to direct back. Remember body language is key.

You need to keep Sonny’s focus when high energy distractions (such as your dog sitter) come into Sonny’s field of vision and/or proximity. When walking, perform the “wedding march”. This is where you take a step or two, stop, have her sit & give you focus, and praise her. If she starts to focus too much on a particular object ahead, you can turn around and walk in the other direction for a moment. You can also stop and let a distraction pass by. The important thing is to get and control Sonny’s focus. Keep it slow and stay calm.

You can break up the time and not do it all at once. 3) WALK inside to get focus and accommodation. Then take it outside. Remember, outside is the same as inside. There are simply more distractions and these distractions are out of your control. Use the Squirt Bottle when you need to ramp it up to get Charlie’s focus.

1) Door (2 people): One person goes to the door when someone knocks. The other has Katie back in the family room on a leash. When Katie is calk, they move her closer to the door. Make two or three stops while going to the door. Have her sit and calmly give focus. Be prepared for her jumping. (1 person) Do mostly the same as above, but when you get to the door with Katie, unlock it and step back about six to eight feet. Have Katie sit and ask the person in. If Katie starts to be adrenalized, walk her around and return. 2) General Exercises – Have both of you together when you are doing the obedience exercises. This helps to build a transfer of dominance and respect between the two of you. 3) Play – Go to the tennis court as much as possible. Take a 50 foot lead to play in an open area if the tennis court is occupied. When you sit, make sure your feet are on the ground. Stand up to show you don’t like it. 5) Make sure you break all your exercises into small actions that can be achieved. Use the training collar and the Easy Walk Harness.

Practice COME and SIT with the leash. Increase the “Sit” time. Say the command only once. Work for short periods and then take a break. Make it more short times than less longer times. Increase the time between Poppy’s potty breaks. If she starts to nip, hold her away from you. Play with her outside the pen so that Poppy doesn’t get as excited.

1) Always have the leash on when you are in the dog area. Always remove it when you are leaving for good. 2) Always lock and check that the gates are locked. 3) Practice “POOPY PICK-UP” with one person picking up the poop with a bag for the glove and a bag to put the poop in. The other person will direct the dogs back if they start to engage the “pooper-picker-upper”. When all the poop is picked up, the other person will leave the area, remembering to lock both gates, and throw the poop in the trash. He will then return to the area, remembering to lock the gates as he passes and to keep the dogs from jumping on the fence. 4) Practice COME on the leash. Praise and stand up when they come to you. Give a little tug on the leash to direct them, if needed. 5) Practice SIT with the leash. If needed, pull back slightly on the leash and guide their rear to the ground. Praise for a good job., 6) Practice WALK in the area. Walk on a leash to the far side, turn, and walk back. Stop and have them sit. Praise. 7) Practice SITTING ON THE BENCH. If one of the dogs tries to jump or get on the bench, stand up and face them. If needed, use the lease to direct away calmly. >>>Remember to stay calm in all your actions. When you get home from school, first practice the Poopy Pick Up, sit, and sit on the bench. Later, practice the other commands. Practice daily.

1) Use the leash (sometimes on and sometimes off — mix it up) to redirect and give you focus. Will keep your consistency in tact. 2) Always practice COME and SIT using the leash. This will assure that you can always teach and have the same, appropriate outcome. 3) Have the leash attached when you are outside so that you can command with confidence. If you don’t know that Olivia will COME to you 100% of the time, use the leash. 4) When the kids are on the trampoline, you need to have the leash on Olivia. Use the leash to guide her away to focus on you. You can also use the shake bottle to strengthen your GRRR voice. The most important goal is that you are calm in delivering resolute commands that will cause Olivia to give you respectful focus and deadrenalize from the kids on the trampoline. 5) ALWAYS stay calm, confident, and consistent. There are never questions that are too small or unimportant; always ask us.

1) Practice STAY – Be sure you do this with a leash attached. First, have Faith sit and just be there for a “five count” or so. Then praise her. Next, do that and step in front of her while hou hold up your “Police Hand”. Wait a moment and step back. Next, do all that and step back, away from her, facing her. Wait a moment and then step back and praise. Next, do all that and go to one side and then the next. Step back and praise. Next, do all that but go all around her. Finally, step back and drop the leash and move away; always with your “Police Hand”. 2) Continue to practice COME on the leash. Say once and then guide, if needed. Always praise. 3) Get Deer Antlers for chewing, mouthing, and teething. 4) You should always go out the front door first, then invite her out. Do the same thing when you are coming back. 5) Have the leash on at times in the house so she gets used to it. Hot Sauce or Bitter Apple to discourage biting the leash. 6) Walk outside next to you in the front of the house. Walk on one side (i.e. left) and turn on the other (i.e. right). Turn, walk back, stop, and sit. Praise. You can walk half wash and give her a “break” (free) where she can enjoy the grass. Then you can practice come and continue the walk. >> You can also put a little hot sauce on your hands if she likes to nip those. Make sure you wash your hands afterwards and never stick your finger to scratch your eye! (ouch!!!)

1) Practice COME on the leash. Get down as low as you can and then five the command COME. Guide her with slight tugs (if needed) until she is now next to you. Praise her for a good job. Start with a short leash inside and slowly lengthen it. You can go outside where there are more distractions and opportunities not to listen. ALWAYS use the leash as your teaching tool until you are 100% positive that you do not need it. 2) Practice SIT with the leash as your teaching tool if she doesn’t not sit. Pull the leash back slightly so that you are giving a slight pull back and up. This will get her off balance, moving backward. Her center of gravity will cause her to go down into a sit. Use your other hand to guide her down. Do not push on her. Praise when done. 3) Limit the water to help with the pottying. Remember that pottying can also be caused when she is adrenalized and calms down. This causes the bladder muscles to naturally release. 4) Put Bitter Apple or Hot Sauce on your hands for the nipping. You should also have another item (such as Kong with frozen peanut butter) as an alternative focus. 5) Use the leash as an alternative correction to the STAND/GRRR/SQUIRT. Put it on at different times. Sometimes, just step on it until she looks back at you. Then, simply keep on going. If she gets out of hand, pick up the leash and briskly walk her in any direction until she calms down. Then praise her and drop the leash. It is imperative that you are calm during this activity.

1) Practice the front door every day. Always face Tucker and be prepared to correct as he approaches your safety line in front of the door. 2) Practice COME on the leash. Squat down when you give the command. Stand up when he has come to you. After he is doing it all th time without the need of directing with the leash, drop the leash and repeat. When he is good with that, remove the leash. 3) Practice SIT with the leash. If needed, guide him down by pulling slightly backwards on the leash to have his head go up and back over his body. This will redirect his center of gravity backward and cause his body to naturally go into a sit position. Use your other hand to guide (not push) him downwards. Remember – Only say the command once. Then guide. Then praise.

1) COME – You need to always have the leash on Charlie until you are sure she will come when you give the command. This builds up the repetition and consistency. 2) LEASH – Try to keep it on as often as you can so you can be consistent in correction and getting Charlie’s attention. 3) WALK – Always take the water bottle so you are never “caught off guard” in an adrenalized situation. 4) DOGGIE DAY CARE – This could be a good way to see how Charlie will do with other dogs. It is a controlled and safe environment that will let Charlie know that you are strong leaders because you are not putting her in harm’s way. 5) SEPARATION ANXIETY – Just remember to keep it slow. Leave for short periods of time and slowly build the time up. ==> Give us a call in a couple of weeks for your next visit. Please call immediately if you have any questions or if there is a set back.

1) COME one the leash only. Praise when done. You must use the leash if you are not 100% sure that he will always come. Remember that the leash is the consistent teaching tool for the command. Do this during the day for two or three times, just like pop quizzes. 2) WALK with the EASY WALK harness in the back yard. Go 10 feet, turn, come back 10 feet, and sit. Once this is easy, extend it out farther and farther around the pool and yard. He needs to walk with you and give you focus. He doesn’t have to “march exactly at your side”. 3) Practice going to the front door and have him back behind a boundary. Always face him as you are at the door and letting someone in. Praise him when he has stayed behind your boundary and you have completed the exercise by safely closing the door. 4) SIT on the leash. You have to get him to sit perfectly every time before you can start the STAY. Remember that STAY is really “SIT a long time”. 5) Don’t forget that more than one person can be “The Boss”. You all just need to have consistent rules, make sure it is always your idea, and correct him immediately and every time he makes a boo boo.

1) COME on the leash only. Stoop down, say COME once. If he doesn’t immediately come, guide with a slight tug or tugs on the leash until he is by your side. Praise him for a good job. Stand up. Repeat this until you don’t have to tug on the leash. Continue by extending the length of the leash from 6 feet to 10 feet to 15 feet to 20 feet to 30 feet. Once he can always come when you call and the leash is no longer used as a training tool, unclick the leash and have him come on his own. 2) Get a 20 foot leash so that you can catch him if he starts to get away. Walk to the end of the leash (20 feet away from him) and put your foot on the leash. Pick up the leash, call him to you, and then walk him to where you want. 3) Think about the ECOLLAR as a “distraction killer” at the beach. 4) Check into Invisible Fence to create the lake perimeter again.

1) Always make sure they are your rules. 2) You are the boss and that means everything is your responsibility. 3) Don’t leave the food out unattended. This tells him that it is OK to eat it. 4) Front Door – Create a boundary he can’t cross and correct when he does. Slowly step back to the door while always facing him. Praise him when you are done. 4) CAR -Get a Dog Holder that has a seat belt hook on owns end and a dog hook on the other. Hook him into the car. Calmly open the door and click on the leash. When you are ready, unclick the seat belt holder and invite him to exit the vehicle. 6) When out in the back yard and you think the other dogs will be out, have him on a leash or long lead. Keep him calm at the door and slowly walk out with him. If he starts to get nuts, direct him away from the dogs or back inside. Repeat until he is calm. Direct him to the other side of the yard. 7) COME on the leash only. Start out inside with a six foot leash and continue outside with a 30 foot lead. Never say COME without the leash until you are 100% sure he will. 8) New Baby – Start now to prepare. Set up the crib and get out the stroller. Bring home a baby doll that is dressed and smells like a new baby. Change your schedule to match your new baby schedule. Pretend the doll is the baby and observe him for things you may need to correct. Changing things slightly over time will make the day you bring home your new baby “just another day” for Chompsky. ===> Please call so we can set up our next training in two weeks with our two dogs and in December to review Baby things.

(1) No jumping – Correct immediately. Firm sound. Squirt. Continue until he settles. (2) Do not let him jump on you. (3) Counter Surfing – Correct (Stand/Grrrr/Squirt). Create boundary to keep away from counter. Watch and be proactive. (4) Walking – Get the Easy Walk harness where the hook is in the front. Keep by your side. If she pulls, she will move sideways back to you. Use your correction sound and the squirt.

Continue socialization with people. Have on leash when people com in. “V-Feed” (throw some dog food on ground between person and Zuzey). Stand tall and stay calmand then toss the food near dog. If she goes to eat; great. If not, don’t worry about it. Do not take leash off until everyone feels comfortable with the situation. Walk with your harness and the easy ealk harness. You start in the house, then out & in the sliding glass doors, then farther into the side yard, then down tha back ally. Do not move too fast; take your time. When walking, “double leash” for extre control. Let’s think about bring both of us and our dog next time for walking distraction exercises.

Front Door: Face Marvin before you open the door. If he begins to approach, correct with your GRRR and water bottle squirt. Always face Marvin. Open the door when he is back and calm. Again, always face him. When the person has entered the house, close the door and praise Marvin for obeying. If Marvin jumps or even looks like he is going to jump, correct with the GRRR and water bottle squirt. Always keep the water bottle and chain bottle out of sight until you correct.

1) Be sure to be aware of Coco when you are home. Remember to take her our and watch her. Life is busy right now and this will be difficult. 2) Try the GPS as a backup if she gets out. This is a crutch, but with a busy life, it is always good to have a “reserve chute”. 3) Cut the water off between meals except if she is on medicine or has been dehydrated (high play or outside walk). Cut the food back very slightly (10%) See how these impact pottying. 4) Get the Easy Walk Harness. Take her with you so that it can be properly fitted. Call with any questions.

Walking – Use the prong collar and double leash. Walking is not about being right next to you, it is about having a safe stroll around the neighborhood. When you need to direct back, give a quick tug on the leash to gen Gracie or Ace to give you focus. Always use the quick tug to get focus. If things get too crazy, don’t hold the leash and be pulled over. Let the leash go. They may run for a moment, but will stop quickly. You can then calmly retrieve them. The double leash will help you be in control as the boys are walking the dogs. You can always take over, but the boys will gain confidence in the process and the dogs will become better walkers because of the repetition and consistency of the process. All of this is designed to build up confidence in the boys and safety in the process.

(1) Use the leash to correct her when she starts to get out of hand. Just like our mother would tug on our arm when we were being bad and she wanted our focus, the tug on the leash does the same thing. Don’t be weak. (2) Create a boundary with the table and keep her behind that boundary. Remember, the closer you allow her to come when you are eating, the faster things can get out of hand with your inability to effectively correct. (3) On the sofa or off the sofa – As long as she can understand the difference in the two situations, you are fine in having different rules for both. The problem takes place when you think you are giving her two, different situations and she can only understand one situation. (4) E-COLLAR. You may think of using the E-Collar from http://www.ecollar.com as a way to get her respectful focus. I will need to help you understand how to use it to maintain focus and not to scare her. With a little practice, it can be done.

1) Use the E-Collar outside to get his focus. Always make sure it is on tight enough for him to feel it. Do not turn up too far immediately, you may really ZAP him. 2) Use the 30 foot training lead as the tool to guide him once you get his focus with the E-Collar. ===> Think of the E-Collar as saying “Hey you!!” and the Training Lead as “Here is what I want you to do!”. You need to do both to work.

Take Beauty out the front door slowly and you need to watch to see if there are any other distractions you need to deal with. When you walk, keep her on a shorter leash that you can easily tug/flick to get her attention back to you. Always be prepared for anything that is coming up on your walk and plan for plans to divert her attention back to you. This may involve moving away from the adrenalized distraction. Always be watching her body language (tight stare, tail between legs, etc.) to see if she is becoming nervous or fearful. Direct away from that. The more you are calm and in control, the more she will submit willingly to your leadership and safety. Be proactive and correct when you think something is about to happen. When you are in the back yard, have her on a longer leash (20-30ft) so you can direct her back from any inappropriate distractions on the other side of the fence. You need to get her used to the other distractions while she still sees you as the one in charge. As long as you feel confident and provide consistent and repetitive leadership, she will respect you. This is not an overnight process and will take a little time. Just as learning your times tables with the two sided cards took a little time, practice and consistency ended up with your knowing how to multiply. This is the same way that Beauty learns things. Call as soon as you have questions.

1) Use the leash inside to control. You can stay calm and catch. 2) Separation Anxiety: More sounds inside. Try Bach Flowers Rescue Remedy or some low level stuff from Dr. Balasky. Practice short going and coming with correction outside. 3) Get EASY WALK Harness so that when she pulls, it will take her off balance and not just a tug-of-war. 4) Always stand to correct. They focus on body language first where we focus on our voice. 5) Think about a doggie day care for one or two days a week to get out the energy. Look at Camp Canine down the street.

WALKING WITH OTHER DOGS: Have Midnight outside with other dog on two sides of the street, separated by two house lengths. Have Midnight start walking on her side of street towards and past of other dog as other does does the same. If she starts to give too much focus or become fearful, direct back to you for comfort and strength. Repeat this several times. Now, walk them on the two sides of the street, but in the same direction. Slowly, very slowly, move the dogs closer so that the distance between their walking decreases to about 15 feet. If, at any time, Midnight becomes agitated, direct her back to you and increase the distance. Finally, have Midnight sit and have the other dog go around her at a distance of about 15 feet. (She is the center of the circle) Now, repeat the process where Midnight walks around the other dog which is now the center of the circle. Now, have both dogs sit at about a distance of 10 feet. You guys talk and let their leashes be somewhat loose. Now, one of you will go over and pet the other dog. Allow Midnight to approach, always keeping the leashes set for a “retreat”, if needed. The most important thing is to keep it slow and always keep it safe for Midnight. Repeat this complete process several times.
