Last session we worked on engagement Training with jax we’re using yes as the Continuation marker free as the terminal Marker we did luring which he was Struggling a little bit since he didn’t Have that much food drive but you’ve Been working on his food drive and then We also introduced him to leash pressure How’s that training going and do you Know if he’s fully conditioned to the Markers yet Uh it’s going well um i would say he is Conditioned to the markers uh he Understands what yes means and free for The terminal uh having a little issues With the leash pressure at some points Being a little stubborn okay no problem So we’ll do a training session i think That’s going to be a good start we’ll go Over the markers again just to make sure We’re doing it right and do you remember The four most common change of behaviors That a dog has when they’re conditioned To the marker No So it’s licking their lips opening their Mouth salivating or moving their paws a Great way to test out to make sure your Dog is conditioned i just get the dog in Front of me i have the treats i wait Till the dog looks up at me i say the Marker and then i don’t reward the dog Right away and i watch to see if there’s A change of behavior and if the dog’s
Conditioned the most common is they open Their mouth because in anticipation of That reward coming we’ll work with the Luring a little bit make sure he’s Following the food nicely and then you Said he’s struggling a little bit with The leash pressure just a little bit Okay cool and least pressure is usually Difficult for most dogs so we’ll do that And then i know you said you’re Struggling with another issue that you Wanted to address and you want to work On today right that was that was begging I wanted to Whenever we’re eating or he wants food He starts to beg and we’re trying to get Him out of that habit okay perfect and That’s a real common problem that a lot Of people run into the nice thing is Dogs aren’t actually begging it appears That they’re begging but what do we do When we want a dog to train we get the Treat pouch and we pull out food and we Ask the dog to look at us in order to Get the food right the dog looks at us We give the dog the food so then when we Sit down to eat our own meal the dog Acts out that behavior the dog comes Over and says hey last time you had food I sat i looked up at you you gave me Some of the food so what’s up And then we tell the dog stop begging Well that can be a little bit confusing So what i like to do in this situation
Instead of trying to stop the dog from Begging because we actually want that Behavior when we have food when we’re Training and it can be a little bit Confusing for dogs so instead of Worrying about that we’re going to Direct them to a different behavior Which my favorite go to is the climb Command if i sit down to eat i have my Dogs go to their climb platform which is Just an elevated bed you guys have one Right yes a nice elevated bed that’s the Dog’s place while we’re eating so you Have to have a place command and then we Have to have a good stay command and We’ll work on that so Redirecting to the behavior you want is One of the best ways to work on any sort Of behavioral issue if our dogs know What they’re supposed to do in a given Situation then it increases their Confidence it reduces the problems that We’re having and it gives our dog a very Clear path to success so i have a quick Question i know he has his puppy teeth Right now but when his adult teeth come In what’s your best strategy to keep Them white and healthy that’s a good Question what i like to do for my dogs Is i give them raw bones probably about Once every two weeks so you can start Doing that right now with the raw meat Dogs love it Once he’s at six months of age and his
Adult teeth come in though and i started Using it recently my dogs love it their Breath is better and their teeth are Whiter and it’s called bark brite lucky For you fixing dog breath is as easy as Giving your dog their favorite treat With bark bright dental kits every good Dog owner knows good health starts with Excellent dental health and with this Simple change in your dog’s oral hygiene Routine you can make a transformative Impact not just with bad breath but by Helping fight plaque and tartar too my Dogs love it and i’m sure yours will too Bright box products are easy to use they Promote a healthy routine for your pup And provide tremendous benefits to you And your dog’s life including fresher Breath in about one to two weeks with Whiter teeth in three to four weeks and Now for you ari and charlie fans out There we have a special deal for you Earn a completely free extra bright kit Valued at thirty dollars when you sign Up for a six month plan at brightbox.com Backslash bright dental backslash nate You’ll be glad you did all right so the Very first step engagement training i Know you said he’s engaged but we’re Just going to do a couple as a refresher For him remember we take the food we Hold it up by our face yes and then we Deliver the reward i’m not going to give Him the reward while he’s jumping up
So now this is a common problem puppies Or dogs jumping up to get the food the Way i like to fix this is i’ll slowly Start to lower my hand and if the pup Jumps up i move it away so i slowly Start to lower And if he jumps up i move away and each Time he’s sitting The food comes to him Good boy come on bk Very nice good boy He’s not even paying attention And if he stays sitting Then the food comes to him so he learns Jumping up Makes the food go away Whereas sitting brings the food directly To him And he’s already figured it out Good boy Very nice Okay so now i’m gonna go back to the Markers Free and then we move back good job Buddy i can give him verbal praise Remember we like to switch hands Yes Very good Free Excellent work very nice Good boy so again the main things we’re Doing is we want him to look up at us And we can even get down to his level Yes
And i’m not gonna reward when he jumps Yes Making sure that we say the word free Before we move So let’s have you do a couple with him Okay Yes Excellent your timing’s really nice so Now we’re going to do some learning do You have any other questions about Engagement training uh not at the moment I think If something comes up i’ll ask and one Of the things that i like to do so when I first start training a dog we use What’s known as continual reinforcement We’re rewarding every single correct Repetition and because of that we go Through a lot of treats now we’re using His food which is exactly the way that i Like to do that i know we went over that The first time but just to repeat it so I bring the dog out before starting any Obedience session i’ll do maybe 30 Seconds of engagement training okay Because the more engaged i can have the Dog the faster they’re going to learn So now with step two we’re just gonna Start luring him around make sure he’s Following the food what’s nice about This step is you don’t have to mark if You don’t want to although i do Recommend using your marker the reason Why is when a dog does something we’re
Trying to capture we have to let the dog Know within one second of them doing the Behavior now if we can’t see what you Mean by him being a little lazy come on Buddy so if i lift up his butt touches The ground i can easily give him the Food within a second of doing the Behavior we’re trying to capture and Since we’re not giving any verbal Commands there’s no stay so i can just Lure him around and just keep giving him Food No problem but i do recommend practicing The markers just to work on your timing A little bit again because watch how Fast i can give him the food the second His butt hits the ground i’m able to Give him the food but again we want to Work on practicing saying the marker Yes and releasing now remember during This step It matter if you use your continuation Marker yes or your terminal marker free Does it matter no it does not why Because either way he’s getting a reward And he’s not in a stay right so we don’t Really care about which marker we use Until we start incorporating the command And we start reinforcing the stay but Right now since i’m not saying Down to get them to go into the position There’s no down stay therefore it Doesn’t matter which marker we use so Since you’re having the issue with
Begging we’re going to use the climb Command so i want to make sure we can Get him to go on it come on big guy Come on buddy very nice yes and then Reward and it’s also nice to lure him Off Yes reward let’s get this sit sitting There yes And i’m marking Once he does the behavior so we’re Looking at the completion yes and reward And let’s get a spin in there as well Come on be gay Yes that’s just for fun we want to make The training as fun and interesting as Possible let’s try to get him in the Heel position and he’s a little pup so We’re going to keep this nice and short Yes and reward excellent so Sit down spin whatever you want to do But the main thing is going to be the Climb and having them come off the climb So what i’m going to do now that we are Incorporating the command Come on buddy i’m going to make sure i Say the command then i’m going to guide Him onto the little climb bed and it Doesn’t matter where you are some people Feel like they need to be right next to The climb when they start teaching it You could be anywhere so i could be Right here and i can say climb And now i’m going to guide him Yes now he’s on a climb stay and now i’m
Watching him the moment he breaks I’ll say one wrong and i’ll place him Back on Yes if he holds it nicely i’m going to Use the continuation marker and i’m Going to reinforce that behavior i’m Going to drop the leash yes go back and Reward Add a little bit more distance Yes since he’s staying on the position Add more distance Yes very good he’s going to make this Easy now i’m just going to start walking Around the room [Music] Yes Wrong A wrong can override a yes We casually bring him back Very good good boy no reward Wrong Good If he holds it for about five seconds Then i can mark for duration So now he’s been holding it for at least Five seconds yes And now i can reward And that was long enough of a time span Away from him breaking the position that We are not rewarding him for placing him Back but we were rewarding him for Maintaining the position Yes Good boy
Very nice Build more distance now dogs will often Break when we squat down because we Usually use that as a technique to call Them to us so this is a good way to work On that as well so i’ll squat down Wrong if he breaks i just say the one Wrong And i bring him back Good boy very nice Wrong Very good buddy Wrong And you have to be ready to continue to Do it sometimes you may feel like a Broken record Yes Very good nice job i’m gonna grab a Couple more pieces Also when you first start teaching a Stay command A good rule to follow is if you can’t Touch your pup Don’t free them up For about two weeks at least the reason Why is dogs are creatures of habit if You start teaching a stay and then Walking 10 feet away and calling him to You or releasing him After enough of those when you get about 10 feet away what do you think he’s Going to do he’s going to automatically Exactly he’s going to release himself so If we start the foundation of any time
We release him we’re close enough to Touch him then he’s going to think that You have to be next to him in order for Him to be released and it just really Helps solidify the stay command so i’m Going to release him he’s doing a great Job and i’m going to use the terminal Marker you could release him by saying a Release word such as break which would Such as break which just means release It doesn’t guarantee a reward as the Terminal marker does Free Come on buddy good boy very nice and now We’re gonna have you do it okay climb Much better Good turn off the pressure And something that i do that helps the Dog a little bit when we’re guiding them Let me show you real quick Oops When i start to guide them i’ll keep my Hand at their level okay so this makes It a little bit easier for him to fall Good boy Instead of holding it high up so if you Hold it on an angle and you’re pulling That could slightly confuse them Sometimes and make them think that we Want them to sit Yes And now technically he’s actually not on A climb stay because i cued him off and I cued him back on without saying
And if that happens if you’re not sure Whether or not your dog’s in a stay then All i do for that is i just let him know That he’s now in that position without Saying stay because i like the implied Stay so i just go climb Good boy And now it’s a climb stay even though he Doesn’t fully understand it yet the more We incorporate that into the training The more he’ll start to understand it All right Yes Good boy buddy And then if you want to try to squat Down perfect Yes Good job jax good job Try coming over here Yes Good job buddy there you go Excellent he’s doing really nice Yes Good job jax Yes Good job Now what’s great about dogs is they’re Very situational so if you have a Certain routine you’ve probably already Seen it like if the first thing you do In the morning is you take him out to go To the bathroom he’s expecting that when You first wake up if you feed him first Thing in the morning he’s expecting to
Be fed first thing in the morning They’re very good at recognizing Patterns and situations so what you can Do with meal time you said when people Start either prepping the table or once They sit down he’s running over he’s Saying you guys got food i sit you give Me food what’s up And he doesn’t understand that that’s Not his place to be in that position so What you can do is you can sit down Right after you sit down that’s your cue Or once you start prepping the table Whatever it is as long as you have some Sort of physical cue That represents him going to the climb And you just create a pattern so start Prepping the table Place him on the climb or sit down place Him on the climb what will end up Happening is he’ll start to recognize That and when you start prepping the Table he will go to his climb bed on his Own that will basically become a Non-verbal command just like the Automatic sit when halted how do we Teach that we slow down we stop and then We make the dog sit we can tell them to Sit we can use the leash to to sit We can use a food lure it doesn’t matter But if every single time we stop and we Tell our dog to sit after enough of Those when we stop our dog will Automatically sit so this is the exact
Same concept so you can use a command Too so for example you’re prepping the Table you place your food down once you Place your food down i would go climb And then i’d walk over Grab them and i’d guide them over on the Climb Very good nice job buddy and then i Would go and sit down now of course once You first start doing this he’s gonna Know it’s a little bit different than a Training session and he’s gonna break More so you can either set it up as a Training session get a plate of food set It down and expect that it might get Cold and then go through this because He’s gonna break more once you sit down Wrong you just have to make sure you Follow through usually a couple sessions Of that And every time you sit down he’ll Maintain that position and now instead Of worrying about Wrong Worrying about him begging or practicing A behavior you don’t want him to Continue as he gets older He now knows when you sit down that’s His place to be wrong and i like to do This with everything i mean i use the Climb for so many different Situations for example if i’m sitting Down and i’m responding to emails come On buddy good boy very nice i have my
Dogs on a climb when i’m in the Backyard let’s say i’m in the backyard Reading or something like that the dogs Are on a climb what other questions do You have is there anything else that you Wanted to go over today oh that was good For yeah i mean it’s enough for him Right for where he’s at So big thing is Make sure you do about 30 seconds of That engagement training before each Session you feed them twice a day three Times three times a day that’s three Training sessions each day if you don’t Have time if you’re busy you’re getting Ready to run out the door i would still Use that as an opportunity but what i Might do i’m just gonna do one handful Let’s say i have his entire bowl of food Right here i might ask for one behavior And give him an entire handful and i can Get through a session in one to two Minutes but he’s still working for every Bite which greatly increases that food Drive which makes the training Significantly easier because as we Already know reward based training is Limited by how much the dog wants the Reward so if we can increase the value Of the reward the training becomes that Much easier because a dog that wants What we have Is willing to do the behaviors we’re Asking them to perform and then the
Luring is looking really nice so i keep Working on that and i’d really focus More on that leash pressure get it to The point where he knows resisting Doesn’t work And if he does start to resist make sure That doesn’t work for him stay strong Once he complies release that pressure Good boy nice job and always end on a Good note short sessions and you should Be good sounds good all right thank you So much all right no other questions no I think we’re good sounds good then good Seeing you again
