Tips for Leaving Your Dog Home Alone

0 Tips for Leaving Your Dog Home AloneWhen we have time off, our pets receive a lot of extra attention, and when that goes away, it can cause behavior problems – like chewing and excessive barking.
So, here are a few tips for helping your dog re-adjust, courtesy of Bark Busters:

• Before you leave for the day, make a low growling sound. This may sound strange, but your dog will actually be relaxed by your voice. In the wild, the pack leader growls when they leave, which indicates theyll return soon.

• Make sure your dog has its own shelter. This is about more than keeping your pet out of the rain. Having a crate, dog bed, or dog house is comforting to an animal – even when the weathers good.

• Make sure they have things to do. Dogs love toys, but they get used to them quickly. Try using different ones for different days so your pet always has something new. If your dog spends time outside, scatter some food around the yard. Since dogs are natural foragers, looking for the treats will keep them occupied for hours.

• Ignore your dog for a few minutes when you come home. Most dogs are so happy to see their owners that they lose control. That leads to unwanted behaviors like jumping, barking, and even playful nipping.To curb this behavior, wait until your dog settles down before you reward him with attention.

    Telling people to … Telling people to ignore others because they are “morons” simply makes you look bad. I’m not a new age hippie. I, and others, are people who know an awful lot about dog behavior and learning theory and have a lot of experience training dogs.

    The advice offered in this video is a lot more “new age” than I would ever use. Growling at a dog before you leave? What is that supposed to accomplish? Unlike these people, I know my dog is a dog and my dog knows I’m NOT a dog.

    That pretty much … That pretty much describes compulsive dominance obsessed type trainers in my experience.

    Also, as us “Purely positive” people use NEGATIVE punishment in our form of training, only those who don’t have the foggiest idea what they are talking about believe us to be purely positive.

    Actually you should … Actually you should ignore the advice in this video. We are *not* pure positive new age hippies – we are people who understand the science of how dogs learn! People out there – read “The Culture Clash” and “Don’t Shoot the Dog” – you’ll get more out of it than you will this crap. If you are in to vids, watch “kikopup” channel on youtube. You’ll become a believer:-)

    Great Advice!

    … Great Advice!

    Great Vid!

    Ignore this Morons who critizice your advise, they are part of the pure positive new age hippie movement on dog training.

    They see what they want to see and listen only what they want to hear.

    The vast majority … The vast majority of this advice is BAD. Growling at your dog will do nothing. Tossing food around the yard is a recipe for disaster (I don’t want my dog foraging — what if someone decides to throw poisoned meat over the fence?). And the idea of the pack leader has been debunked. Come on John Tesh. People all over listen to you. You can do better than this load of BS!
