HAVING SOME FUN WITH POSITION CHANGES
 

Exploring the use of 'Incompatible Behaviors' and 'Direct Terminal Response' as fun and creative concepts in our training, both for 'everyday' and sport dogs. These concepts aren't new; they've been handed down to us through the generations of dog training. More and more trainers are prioritizing their use in training, both to build functional behaviors that allow us to navigate day to day life and sport work, and to develop a stable, cooperative working mentality in our dogs.

Question:
 

My 2 year old dog needs to be crated when I am not home because he will destroy things and it makes me feel like a bad owner. I will be purchasing an ecollar, would it be ok to use it to teach him what he's not allowed to grab?


Answer:
 

When you have a dog like this I would suggest continuing with supervision and confinement. You can use an ecollar when you are there, but it's highly unlikely to carry over to being able to leave him loose without supervision especially if he's 2 years old. I would continue to use the crate when you can't watch him. Don't feel bad about confining him. Unfortunately there are quite a few dogs out there that simply haven't earned the right to be loose without direct supervision. It's much better to crate him than to let him destroy things.
