    Default Koda's progress

    Koda has been progressing really well with the training in regards to visitors, he now doesn't bark anywhere near as much as he used to
    Today i tested the training with another dog. Koda's aggression is only towards medium/large dogs so he didn't react aggressively to this dog at all, but it was a good test to teach him to focus on me instead of the other dog. I will continue to work at this and when he's mastered this we will take Koda out with the behaviourist and meet some larger dogs

    Well done, it is so rewarding when the effort begins to pay off.

    I love the little one rolling over in the end. It looked like it wanted to jump all over Koda.

    I don't know how I did it, but somehow my dog has learned - if she acts like a pork chop around other dogs - she either gets off lead, or I feed her lots of great treats. Urk. I thought I was feeding her treats to reward attention on me, but she backchained in the "killer attack" display first. Oops.

    I'm still working on videos for Nehkbet to look at. So far only got her doing "killer attack" (attention seeking display, tail wagging, bum up) for her friends (neighbours across the street).

    I think, hopefully someone better at training than me will confirm, that maybe for me and my evil hound, making sure she's absolutely got her attention on me, and then asking for a bunch of different tricks one after the other (sit, stand, drop, pretty, drop, roll over, stand, heelwork tricks, etc) and then handing over the yummy treats, makes it harder for her to back chain. She knows she gets treats for all that... and you don't want her to be getting treats for acting grumpy towards anyone or dog.

    And a few times, for the front door, I've just shoved her out the back and ignored her. Tho it's nice to have grumpy dog when the person at the door is a sales guy - who forgets to tell you that you can ask them to leave any time and they must leave (and they're supposed to tell you this).

    Unfortunately - as far as Frosty is concerned, I need an off switch for tradies and friends and family.

    Hyacinth, I do get a giggle at your descriptions of the 'evil hound' LOL
