Dogs, Cats, & Livestock - In the Classroom with Michael Ellis
 

In this episode of In The Classroom With Michael Ellis, Michael fields a question on how to manage dogs around barn cats and livestock. Michael offers a series of management and redirection techniques to desensitize our dogs to other animal that could otherwise become competing motivators. This video was taken from Michael's puppy development class at the Michael Ellis School For Dog Trainers in Santa Rosa, California.


For information on how to implement these techniques with our young dogs, check out Leerbug's newest DVD titled, Raising your Puppy with Michael Ellis - Developing an Active Training Partner.

Question:
 

I have a female Dobie and I am unsure what the best reaction should be when she barks at people or noises. How do I make her stop or let her carry on barking?

 
Answer:
 

I would try giving her an alternative behavior to perform when you want her to stop barking (similar to what you are already doing). In other words, if she barks and you want her to stop, then I would say Down or Sit or use whatever command you wish and if she persists in barking I would give her a correction of some sort. I would not keep repeating NO or Quiet, but teach her that when you say Sit, it means sit and shut up or when you say Down, it means lay down and be quiet.
