Get Better Dog Manners Outside by Doing This First Inside
I’m a firm believer that better dog manners are achieved, if you set boundaries for your dog in your home.
You can call them boundaries, or rules, or whatever you want to call them, and you reinforce them daily, you’ll get much better dog manners outside.
All my clients that have adopted my “Think Outside the Box” dog training approach have found this to be amazingly true, they always get better dog manners.
Just what is my Outside the Box training approach? Well it’s very simple.
Better Dog Manners With One Easy Tip
Put a leash on your dog in the house to control and reinforce what you want your dog to do, and what you don’t want your dog to do.
That’s things like: jumping on the furniture when not allowed, jumping on the kids, chasing the kids, nipping and biting, jumping on house guests.
There’s a lot of issues that I talk to people about all of the time. I found out a long time ago, that dogs are a lot more compliant, and responsible when they’re on a leash or line,
Why? Because if they’re off leash, they get to do whatever they want to do. So it’s time to nip that in the bud.
Now, while it seems like a hassle to do, it’s really not.
That makes it easy and hassle free.
Better Dog Manners Combines Inside and Outside Training
Now of course, you still have to train outside, no getting around that, but you’re not starting at zero, you’re starting with a dog that’s already developed good listening skills.
That makes it much easier to get the desired behaviors you want outside.
