How do i stop my puppy from running out the door?
I have a 6 month old pointer/pitbull puppy and hes 50+ pounds hes a good dog but when that door open he darts out.Hes got out about 4 times and hes extremely briskly one time he got out we had to get within the car to chase him down.We find ourselves having to sneak in and out the door.And its really not a problem coming surrounded by its leaving.ill go to depart from and before i know it he darts out..i have no model how to tell him no or how to stop him
He's a pretty smart dog -- he know there is another world out there, which he wants to explore. Get a leash and embezzle him out for a walk.
Have someone who isn't disappearing hold him while you leave. Or if possible get some gate and block off the doors to the room where the front door is. You should really be crate training anyways, then you wouldn't hold this problem.
train him using treats and other rewards for NOT running away and responding when you telephone call him
eventually he'll become accustomed to the treats and will always return
The same way you stop your kitty from peeing on the floor.
close the door? think logical.
what we have done with our dogs (all six) is we hold them SIT when we are going to open the door, you need to choose a specific place for the dog to ALWAYS sit when you open the door (we chose the stairs directly surrounded by front of the door so they can see what happening)
You will need to work with the dog CONSTANTLY, you need to remember to be lenient and not loose your temper (even once)
start out with just have the dog sit in the "spot" using a key word (we use the word"Wait"), give a treat, play near the dog for a couple seconds, do it again. When the dog does it correctly, shout YEAH!!, clap your hands, give a treat, play, repeat. Continue to do this until the dog get the hang of it. Then, say the word, but when the dog gets into the spot, unambiguous the front door (or which ever door you use), then say YEAH, clap your hands, administer the dog the treat, and play with it. If the dog stands up when you open the door, start over, ignore the mistake, maintain repeating until the dog gets it.
When that is taken care of, vote the word, open the door, step outside, maybe two second, then come in, say YEAH!!, clap, bequeath the treat, play, repeat. Slowly increasing the time.
This will take a while, but in the end, it is worth it.
get hold of a gate and block the door
baby proceeds, ha
