Calm your dog down using the calm freeze

This video shows you a highly effective technique for calming your dog down. It’s called the CALM FREEZE.

It works in two ways.

- I’m holding Lexie still so that she can’t feed her own adrenaline by running around or chasing her tail.
- Due to the gentle contact between us she can feel my calm energy, which helps her to calm down too.

It’s very important to not to look at your dog, talk to your dog, or pat your dog when doing the calm freeze – as these things ADD energy to the situation rather than calm them down.

Preventing fights over food

Food is a big deal to dogs. It’s one of the most common things dogs fight over.
This video shows you a technique you can use to help dogs learn to be calm around food. It reinforces the idea that dogs only eat the food they’re given, and not to fight over it or try to steal another dogs food.

If your dogs fight over food then feed them in separate areas until you feel they can be trusted.

When you move to the step shown in the video play it safe.

It can help if the dogs have already had a good feed so they’re not hungry at the time.

Only do this when your dogs are calm, and put your body in between the dogs so that you can quickly step in the moment either of them show any signs of becoming agitated or aggressive.

How to put your dog in timeout

Timeout is a fantastic tool for showing your dog that certain behaviours are not OK, but it must be done correctly.

In this video I show you the right way to put your dog in timeout.

When you decide to let your dog out do it the same way – no eye contact, no talking, no patting. Just open the door quietly and walk away.

It doesn’t matter whether your dog follows you out of the timeout area or not… and ONLY let your dog out when they’re quiet 😉

Walk training

This is Phase 2 of Walk Training.

Have your dog trail a leash or long line. It’s hard to see in this video but Scarlett is trailing a long line here, because we’re out in a public place and we’re still working on our Recall.

Say “walk,” hold the treat where you want her nose to be (beside your leg) and start walking.

Treat frequently as long as she’s staying behind you and walking nicely.

If she’s jumping up to bite then hold your hand higher. If she keeps jumping then stop and make her sit until she calms down.

Keeping your dog from pulling in front

Dog walking: Enjoyable? or arm-yankingly NOT?

If your dog is pulling in front of you before you even get to the front gate then it’s game over!

Having a nice walk with your dog means your dog trots along beside and slightly behind you. In the dog world the one in front is the one who decides what’s dangerous, and if your dog is making that decision then walks probably won’t be that much fun for you.

In this video I’m showing Lexie that I go first. It’s important to stay calm, and, with an excitable dog like Lexie, the fewer words the better.

(If you’re sitting there wondering “Why doesn’t she use treats?” I’ve actually got one in the hand I hold behind me the whole time! Lexie’s just too anxious about the outside world to care about food.)

Teaching your dog to walk outside calmly

Calm before leaving the house

This is one exercise you can use to train your dog to walk out of the house calmly. Practise this regularly to stop your dog bounding outside the second you open the door!

How to put on a front-clip harness

This video shows how to put on a front-clip harness. This one’s an Easy-Walk Halti by Purina.

Harnesses that clip at the front are amazing! If you have trouble walking a dog who pulls then definitely give this a try.

Here’s why they’re amazing:

They don't pull the dog from behind. Pulling a dog from behind instinctively makes it want to pull forward. This is how sled dogs work.

It puts no strain on the dog's neck. That being an obvious benefit in itself, what you may not know is that pulling a dog's collar from behind puts pressure on their throat, and this increases your dog's stress levels - which is the opposite of what we want.

When your dog pulls and the harness tightens, it actually "hugs" the dog under its chest and activates calming acupressure points.

Clipping the lead at the front enables you to turn your dog from the side and you'll find a lot less of your strength is needed to control him.

See? Amazing!
