Chloe has been learning how to feel comfortable wearing a muzzle so that we can use this great options to help her stay safe around her sister and other dogs in sticky situations involving personal space and valuable resources like food and toys. 🐾 Chloe’s fabulous Mom has already thought ahead and has been doing this work with her at home! So in the video, I’m just continuing on with that work by using the muzzle as a food bowl and having Chloe stick her nose in there to eat her meals. Once comfortable with this, I then move on to doing up the straps while continuing to feed her through the muzzle. After lots of conditioning like this, Chloe has become super comfy with the muzzle, so our next step will be having her wear it around casually while we’re working on other things to keep her used to wearing it and feeling comfortable like she does with any of her other clothes, collars or jackets. Nice work darlin’! 😘 #hfxdogs #halifaxdogtrainer #halifaxdogtraining #findyourbalancedogtraining #fybdt #findyourbalance #dogs #balancetraining #boardandtrain #ecollar #ecollartraining #lifewithdogs #prongcollar #dogtrainingtip #everywheredogs #reallifetraining #reallifedogtraining #trainyourdog #traineddog #placecommand #recalltraining #offleashtraining #offleashlife #calmdogseveryday #calmoncommand #calmdogsgetincluded #calmdogs #calmdogsarehappydogs #calmdogsmakebetterchoices #politedogshavemorefriends

Chloe is learning how to ‘keep her eyes on her fries’ and not worry about or try to control what anyone else is doing. The Place Command is a fantastic lifestyle tool that helps Chloe relax and stay put rather than getting all up in in her sisters business 💁🏼‍♀️, panting and pining anxiously or barking at random sounds and doorbells.

Learning how to relax is one of the toughest things for a lot of dogs to learn how to do. Most dogs are so used to being exercised into exhaustion that they don’t know how to simply be calm and relaxed when asked to do so. The Place Command is a lifestyle tool that teaches dogs how to have an ‘off switch’ (whether they’ve been walked/exercised or not!!!) through lots of mindset duration work. Dogs don’t need to be exhausted to be calm and well behaved, they need to be taught how to be calm and polite on command. Place = Calm + impulse control 😴💤 #hfxdogs #halifaxdogtrainer #halifaxdogtraining #findyourbalancedogtraining #fybdt #findyourbalance #dogs #balancetraining #boardandtrain #ecollar #ecollartraining #lifewithdogs #prongcollar #dogtrainingtip #everywheredogs #reallifetraining #reallifedogtraining #trainyourdog #traineddog #placecommand #recalltraining #offleashtraining #offleashlife #calmdogseveryday #calmoncommand #calmdogsgetincluded #calmdogs #calmdogsarehappydogs #calmdogsmakebetterchoices #politedogshavemorefriends

Bella and I had a fun session today working on her obedience commands using the remote collar or ‘invisible leash’ as a communication tool to show her how to recall without a place cot to aim for and how to hold a down/stay on the wide floor. It’s much easier for a dog to learn to recall to a place cot (after they’ve been taught the place command) and to hold command on the cot because it has a defined boundary which makes it obvious when they are in command. But when we move to more open recalls, with a down/stay in the floor, it can seem a bit more difficult for the dog. 🐾 In the video, you’ll see me using Bella’s remote collar as a communication tool, the same way I’d use a long line to give guidance, to show her how to recall to just a person and how to hold a down/stay with no cot/bed. As Bella puzzles out what I’m asking her for and tries out different options like going past me towards the dog bed (because that’s what we have previously been practicing), I use low level remote collar to guide her towards me instead and then into a down/stay. At this stage in the obedience part of our sessions, our work is about teaching the dog through communication and guidance as they are trying to puzzle out and learn what the human wants through a bit of trial and error! Great job Bella! 😍 #hfxdogs #halifaxdogtrainer #halifaxdogtraining #findyourbalancedogtraining #fybdt #findyourbalance #dogs #balancetraining #boardandtrain #ecollar #ecollartraining #lifewithdogs #prongcollar #dogtrainingtip #everywheredogs #reallifetraining #reallifedogtraining #trainyourdog #traineddog #placecommand #recalltraining #offleashtraining #offleashlife #calmdogseveryday #calmoncommand #calmdogsgetincluded #calmdogs #calmdogsarehappydogs #calmdogsmakebetterchoices #politedogshavemorefriends
