    30 - Work on controlled exits

    It can be entertaining to watch people opening their car door at the park and either wrestle with their dog while they put on a leash or be knocked sideways as he barges his way to freedom. It is not so amusing when it happens to you, and there will also be occasions where you need to open the car door but do not want him to get out.

    Use a clicker and hand signals to ask him to sit or to lie down so that he learns to listen to you and wait calmly for you to get him ready.

    1. Ask your dog to sit or stand when you open the door.
    2. Clip on his leash and ask him to wait using a hand signal so that he learns not to leap out the moment you step back from the car.
    3. Ask him to jump down or lift him if he is small and ask him to sit or stand by the side of the car.
    You can click and treat him so that he really understands what you expect of him and use TTouches around his head to maintain his focus. Enjoy your walk!

    Ask your dog to wait for a moment instead of leaping out the moment you open your door
