What’s up everyone andy krueger here Today’s video Jasper couche Ball on a string who doesn’t like a ball On a string i’m gonna show you guys a Couple little tricks you can do to get Your dog to stop biting the rope i get a Bunch of questions on here hey andy the Ball on the string my dog only bites the Rope how do we get him to bite the ball How do we get him to bite the ball and That’s what i’m going to show you today And of course i’m using my main man I’m using jasper More than happy to demonstrate this ball Right here it’s my preferred ball it’s From complex k9 on instagram i’ll put a Little thing thing on the bottom of the Screen shoot him a message tell him i Sent you if you want a ball like this The reason i like this ball is because The ball is large No possible chance it could ever go down The dog’s throat And It kind of has This rubber handle here that makes the Rope stand upright like that and this is Going to be crucial in fixing Your dog biting on the string so without Further ado booyah Boom Good old ball on a string it’s a good Alternative to a tug
A lot of dogs can have more ball drives Than they do drive for the tug Especially a breed that maybe isn’t Necessarily a belgian malinois so it’s a Great toy but like i said Everyone messes it up and gets the dog To bite the string Jasper Oh yeah baby jasper Yes Boom so a couple just to show you Of course my boy bites the ball But what the final product should look Like jasper Yes Tip number one jasper i see If your dog bites the string And you’re holding it like this Bad trainer shame on you you’re giving Them the opportunity to bite the string Of course they’re going to take it this Is how you have to hold it Andy the dog’s going to take my hand up First of all no they’re not second of All Don’t be a baby You hold this thing Right up Got it Right up at the top like this that String goes away this is step one i see Yes And once the dog bites it now i can go Down on the rope here and give him
The slack he needs to tuck Jasper There we go get nice and close here Cameraman So there’s no string available for him To bite yes Beautiful Couche And if you notice when i tell him yes The command to grab the ball I’m not moving until he grabs it number One mistake people make Jasper Number one mistake you ready first of All they expose the string so the dog Can bite it and then you know what they Do they tell the dog to get it and they Start moving it like they’ve seen pro Dog trainers do they start moving it This is a horrible idea this is going to Get you in trouble don’t do this yes Now if you want to get bit that’s the Best way to do it you’re not going to Get bit like this you’re going to get Bit quit swinging it around if your Dog’s targeting is absolutely perfect And finished maybe you could do that but The key is Hide the rope and do not move do not Create action until the dog is on the Ball Yes Oh yeah and he bites Hey
It’s not a saying for nothing he bites Trust me i value my hands very much i’m Being careful But you also can’t be a baby oh Jasper Jasper Jasper Yes Jasper koosh Jasper Now when you’ve repeated this 200 times Just like this 200 times more wouldn’t kill you Yes Once you repeated that now you can move On now you can mix up the target but Still no rope still motionless jasper Right above the nose Yes Jasper Down by the chest Yes Pro tip If your dog loses the ball mid-grip Like my dog just did Different for everyone he’s not allowed To re-engage with that ball because That’s how i’m going to get bit so Here’s an example let’s say he’s tugging On it he’s tugging on it boop it comes Out of his mouth Jasper Okay it didn’t happen it comes out of His mouth i start flailing he starts
Jumping he’s biting the rope he’s biting My hands ah i drop the ball i get scared If he drops it i tell him to let go so i Go yes Out Yes Oh Uh-huh but andy my dog doesn’t out like That then your dog isn’t ready to be put In this situation right okay So you’ve repeated right here a million Times a million perfect reps dog biting The ball doesn’t even think about biting The string anymore now i’m gonna make it A little more difficult i’m gonna change Up the target hold it like this Yes And i Hey I don’t move that ball so the dog locks On it And yes you have to trust your dog To be able to do this Jasper okay Yes Oh yeah baby Jasper Oh i got a million reps over two months I’m really happy with that Start exposing the string Yes Jasper Yes Jasper okay
Yes Boom Jasper Goushay the only reason your dog is Biting the string is because you taught Them to do that You exposed it you facilitated the Behavior they grabbed it you Inadvertently started pulling back Giving the dogs satisfaction with the Game so now you’re gonna need to untrain It but Only giving the dog the option to get The ball like this that’s the only real Way to do it Cliche If you drop the ball on the ground like That and tell your dog to get it and They grab the rope then you know you Really have a long way to go but you Want to see this when you know you’re Making progress yes Yeah buddy Grabs the ball the string means nothing To him jasper Yes You know what i mean Jasper Yes I’m keeping that ball stationary Until he grabs it Jasper Because if i tell him yes and i start Moving this
One you’re gonna get bit Two you’re gonna condition the dog to Bite the string Three you’re gonna completely screw up All the dogs targeting So this is a lot of work to get here yes Jasper Terrible out terrible out we’ll edit That don’t worry i’ll totally people Think that out was perfect Yes Bingo Oh Yeah jennifer Yes Jasper Jasper Yes Jasper Jasper Simple Easy basic pushing yes Let me know what you guys think in the Comments hopefully this can help you out A little bit Take your time One perfect rep after another day after Day week after week get you a shirt he Bites Lincoln description I’ll run around a little bit then go hit The pond Appreciate y’all Patreon.com
