Training Collar Guide: Pick the training collar that best suits your pet

Barking-Episode 3 – barking on a walk-dog training


This is the third installment in the series of Barking. In this episode I will show you the beginning exercises on how to teach your dog not to bark on a walk. Stay informed and subscribe to other exercises that are very useful for reactive dogs and dogs that are hyperactive to see. All these exercises benefit any dog, not just fearful, reactive or aroused dogs. These same exercises are great for dogs with little impulse control, the kind of dog that wants to pull towards everything on a walk. ———————– When a dog becomes aroused or reactive, it is due to chemicals released by the brains, running the dogs behavior. Not just a dog’s behavior as a result of these chemicals and stress hormones, but their heart rate, breathing, and blood flow will also change. Pulling a dogs neck will not reduce these substances, instead increase them. Barking can be reinforcing, so the more a dog may bark the more likely they will continue barking in the future. When you and your dog are surprised on a walk and your dog starts to bark, simply say “Let’s Go” and move firmly in the opposite direction. You can use this cue whenever you change direction unexpectedly or need to move from an area that is causing your dog to be over their threshold. Here are some tips: 1-when on a walk cross the street to get your dog up for success 2-If you have a very fearful or reactive dog, simply change the direction of your walk when you see something your dog wont be able

  • This excersise just theach the dog to avoid situations not to ignore them.

  • Well, the solution shows she is not just to run. Try a field or somewhere she can dog for a long distance to see. When they stopped in the far far away and she sees the dog (very important haha, she might think that you just want her attention) give her a treat. Try a little closer, she is quiet? To treat. Repeat until she responds. Backing up a bit, she has to calm down? No? Backing up more and more until she calmed. Treatment (no treatment until they rest). Hope that helps! : D

  • Have you tried the exersize of giving in to pressure belt for distraction when following the instructions in the beginning? (I’m guessing so, but hey, I need to check, right?) It’s all about breaking down and see when / where your dog is reactive to things. Maybe if you have a big dog in the distance, stop for a bit and try the suggestion in 2:27 where your reward in the presence of the stimuli (large dogs / people). Maybe try to figure out what kind of people he barks too and repeat.

  • Thank you for this advice! I just so happen to have a clicker when I train my parrot. My Sheltie is adopted, and he has a huge barking problem to other people who are not familiar with him, like every other animal. Going on walks are terrible around seventeen, when all around comes home from work. It’s overcast today, so let’s see how it goes. Thanks again for the advice!

  • (Continued) training in other areas as well. I am so very happy with the results and on behalf of my and my beloved pup, thanks for everything you do. I mean when I say this has changed our lives. I used to be afraid of running him for fear he would bark at passersby, now sees them as something wonderful. I started clicker training b / c of your videos, and I can say what a difference it makes. Thank you again and we wish you and your dog the best of this year. 🙂

  • Kikopup hi just wanted to tell you how much this particular video has changed our lives. I did this exercise with my dog ​​and keeping a log to follow its progress and we started mid-December and now he has gotten soooo much better. he does not bark much, but a few yips here / there. it’s so great, he will look to the stimuli then back at me like, “Hey, I have something good, right?” Usually he starts barking immediately. it’s so awesome! I’m going to continue (continued)

  • My family laughed when I told them I was going to get ripped with “Smashing Ripped X”, but I showed them the results. Do a search on Google for Smashing Ripped X to their reaction. (You can see their faces!)

  • I learn neuron science or dog training??

  • In fact, revolve around your dog succeed in training. If you’re in the other direction, you communicate with them, you want them to focus on something else. it’s like telling them to change the subject and move on. hope this helps!

  • I am looking for a new born puppy training not to be aggressive, but I still do not

  • My uncle has a farm all dogs are aggressive I try to train a puppy t

  • You probably have a word like “good” or “yes”, I think. But you can add a word, it works the same as a clicker. The clicker is more time-efficient, but a word works fine.

  • I have a big, strong irritable Weimarraner X that is difficult to teach at the heel and also bark at people on a walk. After trying numerous positive methods, without much success, I tried this tonight and it worked like magic.Within five minutes, she walked in line beautiful and she loved the ‘let’s go! ” Early days, but this is her best answer so far. Thank you 🙂

  • THANKS KIKOPUP! I discovered you while attending Bergin University of Canine Studies, where I got my AS in Assistance Dog Education. You got me through some tough times and problem behavior before I learned about Kohlberg’s stages of development, BAT training, etc. .. I just wanted to give you props for putting these concepts in a language and common videos that dog owners can understand. Keep up the good work!

  • what if i dont use a clicker to walk my dog, I can still use these techniques?

  • Emily, I understand the second step. If he barks and you change direction and say, “Let’s go!” and the dog barking and moves with you stop, will not click / treat him cause him to repeat the scenario for more treats? (You may not believe this, but — like mine barks at squirrels, I whistle, he runs into dog thru the door, and I give him a treat. Few days of this, and he starts to go out, barking, and then walk inside before I even whistling, expecting a treat! He was trained ME!

  • Good answer. Emily said as much in the video. It’s hard to be patient and take baby steps. We want to fix the problem in one easy step. Bad people! Ha ha. Now to figure out how these steps apply to the situation squirrel …

  • I NEED TOO help. My dog ​​has a doggy door. If he sees a squirrel out of his window, he starts crying and runs the doggy door and “trees” of the squirrel or follows it from tree to tree. After dark, the problem of stray cats, he will go to his company or whatever to do, and when he sees or smells a cat outside the garden, he barks and barks. If I whistle he comes in, but if I reward him for coming in at the moment, he will not repeat the scenario for more treats! HELP.

  • My dog ​​does not even accept form of treatment when he sees a dog … He’s just so focused on the … or worried about it if he loses his appetite

  • Well, if I ever figure it out, I will tell you XD

  • I could use an answer to this problem, too …

  • What about dogs that bark only when you are not there? Just like when I was on a bike, one of my dogs barking all the time. Once I see the barking stops. The same applies to when a dog or human is running on the road. They stop barking when I open the door, and almost never bark while I’m there, even if we have other people and dogs on walks. I do not mind that warned that someone there, but I want them to stop after one or two barks instead of barking non-stop …

  • The pressure is to strengthen? Hardly. Often attract positively reinforced, but the pressure as such more positive Punisher character. Except that a dog pulling on the line quickly becomes insensitive to pressure, so pretty simple increasingly indifferent to the alleged reinforcing effect of reduced druk.Negatieve punishment comes hand-in-hand with positive reinforcement, and there is nothing wrong with that. But negative reinforcement is something to be used with more care.

  • Great video! Can you make a video that will help with dogs barking for no apparent reason? Both my husband and I work full time and recently getting complaints that my dog ​​barks constantly. There is no way that I can correct if I’m at work. What can I do to stop her barking when we are at work?

  • Sheer ignorance, there is nothing wrong with negative reinforcement and negative punishment etc, just accept it as they are gebruikt.Simpel said there is pressure when the dog pulls, a form of negative reinforcement, regardless of the fact that on a harness.
