Australian Shepherd Photo of the Week

Australian Shepherd Dog Photo of the Day

Chris Massey

I have the two best Australian Shepherds in the world and this picture was taken on their first visit to the vet. In the picture they are seven weeks old. Chevy is my black tri that we refer to as the happiest dog on the planet, loves squeaky toys and can leap out of this world. Chipper his litter mate brother is our blue merle who is the most protective big brother and boss of our house, he can be the trouble maker at times but he wins my heart back in seconds, he is also our water lover.

What To Do When Nothing Works

Some dogs are stubborn. Even with all the training knowledge in the world and a great attitude to practice, you might still have trouble making headway on a particular problem behavior.

Many of the training methods covered in this book involve “luring” your dog to perform a behavior and then rewarding it. This is a very effective technique most of the time, especially if you don’t have much training knowledge.

But, as we’ve already touched on when we talked about the Sit command, there’s another type of training that involves behavior “capturing.” This involves rewarding a behavior when your dog does it on her own, without any input from you. This process can be a lot slower, but it can be the key to training very stubborn dogs.

To make this technique useful, focus on teaching some easy commands first. Pick the low-hanging fruit, so to speak. If your dog begs a lot, capture that behavior and teach her to Beg on command. Once she starts to understand a bit about the training process this way, you’ll find it much easier to get the “luring” training techniques in this book to work for you.
