This one’s particularly interesting though because we have tons of big hyper dogs now as you know I love working with hyper dogs.
But trying to convey to people that a hyper dog is a smart dog is sometimes challenging That’s my goal in this class.
It looks like a Boxer Pit mix, so we’re thinking We’re gonna teach our dogs to have a look at us by using a hand signal.
Dogs are heavily responsive to exaggerated body language so in the beginning it might look something like look at me, like this, really really exaggerating We have a nice tight training problem close eye to eye now. I don’t know biscuit too.
Well and if you were me you would be a little cautious about going eye to eye with a dog like this that you didn’t know, and Is he good with strangers, coming into his area? “He is.”
Okay very good look at me. Yes very good this work right here eye to eye I’m gonna hold up the treat Look at me and since I like what he’s doing I’m gonna click because I like that remember the click means “Good dog, I like what you did, you win a prize.”
Look at me And I’m taking my time getting them to treat, as long as you mark that Behavior with the clicker, to let them know you like it or yes If you’re not using the clicker, Then you can take your time getting the treat to them.
