Establishing rules and boundaries in the home

It does not have to be challenging.

Think of the leash as 4 feet of extra control.

The leash should stay on the dog until it understands expectations. It is a means of controlling and setting boundaries.

Free time generally, free time should be in a fully fenced backyard, So the dog shouldn’t be able to escape. It is a place where the dog can ‘be a dog’ – run, play and have fun.

Therefore, keep playtime outside rather than inside where bad behaviours develop.

Rules and boundaries are set up to teach the dog that they are living in our space, not the other way around – this stops hierarchy issues.

Affection should only be given as a reward; this stops the dog from picking up unwanted behaviours if given at the wrong time.

Brain engagement and world exposure consistently are important to rid anxiety and promote a happy and balanced headspace.

The key is consistency when it comes to how to crate train your dog so hang in there and if you need any assistance we have dog training services to help you.

Stay tuned as we move beyond the crate and into leash work and obedience training next week!
