Better Dog Manners Outside – Start Inside

 

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.

Why? Because I teach you what to do and how to do it, and also when to do it.

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.

I’m Jim Burwell, I’m on the road today to get more people thinking outside the box with their dogs.

So, tell me, what’s your takeaways from this lesson, and how can you put this best to use with your dog?

    You have a puppy. He doesn’t know any other way to act than like a puppy. (almost like a crawling baby/toddler) How you teach him from this point on will be critical to how he interacts with you, your family and the world. If you don’t want to hire a trainer than look at this.https://www.petiquettedog.com/products/nose-tail-puppy-training/ A good trainer has worked on his/her craft for years, taken many seminars and spent a ton of money. A good trainer is easily $200 per hour or more.

    Hiya Jim, Thanks for such an informative blog post. So I recently became the mother of an 8 week old puppy retriever. He is great however there are a few things that need to be ironed out before it gets out of hand. A few of the things you mentioned here, really describes his behaviour.

    I would take up a professional for the help but they always seem overpriced and really expensive. I recently read a blog post about an online training course that seemed really genuine:https://www.retrieversareus.com/brain-training-for-dogs-review. But Im not sure it is and I wanted an experts advice on wether I should explore this avenue first before throwing cash into professional assistance.

    Would really appreciate any help you can provide as its now something that I need to take action on. Thank in advance!
