Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question here

Question: How do you get a dog to settle down in the house when you aren't training? My dog paces and whines in the house, I can't find the "off" switch.

I have had a few high drive GSD. Great dogs, except when we are in the home relaxing. I am relaxing but the dog is pacing and whining. He never seems to be able to turn it off. I was not able to ever find his "off" switch. Can you help me with some ideas or make a DVD on how to turn your dog off when you are not working? Think there is a need for us novice dogsters.

Cindy's Response:

We teach this to our dogs from the very first day of training. We use several words to let dogs know what we are doing.  

Ready? Means it's time to train.
Good.  Means keep on doing what you are doing.
Yes.  Means you are free to break position to access your reward.
Done. Means training is over.

We never play or train in the house. Dogs can be conditioned to always be ON in the presence of the handler if they aren't clear on the rules of training and play. The beginning steps to the training is covered in the video The Power of Training with Food.

Here's a free video clip that may interest you, My High Drive Dog will Never Settle and Be Calm, What Can I Do?

On Leerburg's Hol-ee Rollers

Hi Cindy,

I may just have the best advertisement for these Hol-ee Rollers! Please find 3 pictures attached.

Your hol-ee rollers really are the best toys!  Here are some pictures of my group taking a break from playing.  These toys hold up very well even to some chewing, they are easy for the dogs to fetch and carry around, and stand up to rough play in the kiddy pool.

Thanks for your great website and keep carrying the hol-ee rollers in your store!
