Behavior Chains To Teach Multiple Commands At Once

I would like to address a common dog owner mistake.  I am talking about people who tie their dogs to a pole unattended. For the sake of getting to the point, I am going to generalize a bit in my explanation.

Here is why this is a bad idea. Whenever you impose restraint on a dog from an external force such as a leash, a garden fence, a living room window or a car window and then introduce a stimulus, any one or all of the dog’s internal drives are stimulated. These drives include but are not limited to prey drive, fear drive, and fight drive. What you have done is trapped the dog. The dog would like to move for a variety of reasons. It might be afraid of a person or another dog and now it cannot run away. Well, the dog thinks, if I cannot run from the scary thing I better act tough to scare it away.  The dog may want to go and investigate something and the limited restraint will only serve to frustrate the dog. That frustration can only come through the mouth of the dog.  You have severely limited your dog’s options.

I get a lot of people asking me how to get a dog to stop doing annoying things. It’s not about getting your dog to stop doing anything, it’s about getting your dog to do maybe four or five things that you like that will improve the quality of life for both you and your dog or puppy. For example, people ask,” How do I get my dog to stop bolting out the front door?” Well, we can do that, but the root of the problem is that your dog does not fully understand the “down” command. If your dog is efficient with the “down” command, then you can open any door and your dog will not bolt out of it. By getting your dog to do a few things really well you will be able to eliminate the hundreds of things that you don’t want your dog to do.

You want a dog that when you take it for a walk, it’s going to stay by your side. When you go to the park or you go to the beach you don’t want your dog running off. You want a dog that when allowed to go explore and sniff around it will come when called immediately no matter what. When your dog returns you want it to lay down and be still. Now if you have that I’d say 90 percent of all dog owners would be thrilled with that dog. That is going to make a safe dog and a dog that is a pleasure to have around.
