    Default Oh dear, that back fired

    I bought my dogs in tonight to try and spend some extra training time with the younger one, he is very over excitable and the idea was to have him inside and when he was quiet a well behaved he would get a pat, if he was noisey he was ignored. I had them in for about an hour and now he is sitting by the back door yelping and crying. Do I try it again tomorrow night? Is there something I could do different?

    I have found that is next to impossible to train dogs when in each others company. 1 on 1 is best.

    Thanks Di, I have discovered that lately! When I bring them inside though, one just sits nicely on her mat and behaves very well, the other jumps around and carries on for ages, and that is the behaviour I am trying to curb. In general though, yes I need them seperate to do anything productive!

    Just the over-excited one? Really? Never thought of that. Is that the same principle as a 'trainer' once had me do and have the dogs tied up for an hour each day?

    Do they come inside often? I would wait until your pup has calmed down from the excitement of being inside. Find a really good treat to use when training and if you have to only have one inside at a time.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    When you say cry at the door....is that to go out or does the dog want to come back in for being with you guys.

    If you don't have a crate, you can also train "place"........There are so many different ways to train that, depending on the method of training you use


    Dogs that are not used to being inside are often very exited when they are allowed inside.......I feel for those, they are so happy to be inside, but the behaviour they display, often gets them taken out again. Catch22

    Best way to get over it, allow them to be inside and get used to being inside. It will become their normal

    My dogs, inside means quiet....So everyone just goes into their spots and sleeps. Or they know that we have these short periods of training indoors. They love that

    Mine learnt gentle, quiet for inside when I was ill. Just like Newfs they go to their self assigned places and snooze or quietly head wrestle on the floor.
    I make sure though they are not inside for their boisterous zoomies times, these are predictable.

    LIke Di said, go for 1 on 1.
    I cant do mine in the same room at all because then I have to do them both and it just turns into some sort of a game for them and they get all stupid
