Thread: How do you teach a puppy to paw the door when it needs to go out?

    Boss is also self taught but it started when he use to follow the cats out the cat flap (before he grew massive), he would let him self in and out. Then when he got stuck (literally) he started doing 'head only' out the door. Now he just hits the cat flap with his paw so I hear it lol! Probably not much help >.<

    If you go to the crate and just stand there like you forgot the dog was there (eg turn your back and stand still), how long would it take for her to start barking?

    My dog is extremely chatty about dinner so it was easy to work on bark command at dinner time. So you've got the right idea. Your dog barks when she wants something... so use that.

    If you have to - try covering up the crate so she can't see you coming. Though she might still hear you.

    Dog barks - you say yes, give treat, repeat about five times then say your bark word when you think the dog is about to bark, dog barks, give treat eg "speak" "bark" "yes" treat.

    Thank you so much hyacinth, this is a good idea i shall try this. She destroyed her squecky toy today and i saved the squeek thing from it and was squeeking it i seriously thought she'd bark at it she looks like she wanted too but she didn't. So will try the crate thing.
