43 - Teach sensible behavior around livestock

43 - Teach sensible behavior around livestock

Any meeting with other animals needs to be calm and controlled. Chasing or lunging and barking at cats, wildlife, farm animals and so on is not acceptable. The earlier you introduce your dog to a variety of other animals the better, as it can be very hard to change the behavior of a dog that has already learned to chase and/ or kill another animal.

  1. Keep your dog on a leash, and use a steady voice to keep him calm.
  2. Ask him to sit quietly and watch the animals from a distance; use the clicker and treats to reward his appropriate behavior. Ask him to turn and look at you before you allow him to meet the other animals.
  3. Use TTouches to give him sensory input and to help him to stay settled.

Your dog should be calm and quiet when meeting other animals. Cookie is meeting Poppy, a miniature Mediterranean donkey, and is sitting beautifully
