Worth the Wait – SIRIUS Adult Dog Training

Keep waiting, even if it takes awhile to get started.  Your dog will learn much better if they figure it out than if you try to lure them.

Lunging On Leash – SIRIUS Adult Dog Training

We don’t want our dog to lunge on leash, so we ignore the behavior and wait for them to stop.  As soon as they stop we reward them, and soon they’ll figure out what you’re looking for.

Training Oppurtunities – SIRIUS Adult Dog Training

Be ready to reward your dog at the right time.  If your dog is not acting like you want it to, watch them closely and be ready to promptly reward as soon as they do something you do want.

Reward Training Intro – SIRIUS Adult Dog Training

Most owners ignore their dog’s good behavior and punish their bad behavior.  In All or None Reward Training, we do the opposite, ignoring the bad and rewarding the good.

Dog Whispering Praise - Training Dogs with Dunbar

At higher levels of training you can use a very quiet voice to get a heightened level of attention from your dog.  A little whisper voice makes a powerful reward.

More Reward Training – SIRIUS Adult Dog Training

The level of reinforcement should depend on the quality of behavior.  If your dog is looking very cute, or is being attentive, then give them a treat in addition to praise.  If they’re only acting okay, then praise alone is sufficient.

Sit & Watch

Keep your dog secured on a leash and ignore everything they do.  If they sit and look at you, give them a treat.  Soon you’ll have a much more attentive dog

Good Behavior

Taking the good for granted and moaning and groaning about the bad is without a doubt, our biggest human foible. Rather than relishing all wonderful things about life, we tend to focus on problems. This tendency is extreme when people interact with their family, friends, colleagues, dogs and horses, and especially when people evaluate their own lives.
