SESSION 41: Teach your dog to accept petting and handling more neutrally

In episode 41, I give you a step by step exercise to teach your dog to accept handling and petting more neutrally.  I promised you this handling exercise in podcast 39 (our micro-first aid class with Lynn Russell).  These exercises, that I recommend you do prior to each meal, will make life easier with your dog.  Your dog will become a better veterinary patient and a better grooming client.  Your dog will be less stressed with interaction with people and be able to do lots of things like teeth brushing, coat brushing, nail clipping and bathing.

In this session:

Does your dog get mouthy or over excited when you go to pet them?

Do you know how to incrementally teach them to accept physical interaction with people without getting mentally over-stimulated?

I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
