Are you searching for answers on how to control your dog, especially in times of extremely hyper behavior? Have you tried different options but have yet to get the perfect one to properly discipline your dog? You can try various types of solutions but sometimes you can miss out on one simple lesson that your dog can easily master. This one thing can easily solve your dog’s behavior dilemma. No matter what breed of dog you have, the majority of domestic dogs adhere to this simple type of interaction.

You need to understand that dogs tend to become hyperactive because they want to play or engage with you. The best thing is to reciprocate this and give them what they want. That simple solution that lies under your nose is… playing fetch. If you haven’t considered utilizing fetch as a means to discipline your dog, then always keep in mind that this is an effective and strong solution. The main point of playing fetch for disciplinary reasons is that you give your dog what it wants and let it play with you; in return, you tire your dog out and it will eventually stop and rest.

Playing fetch not only helps in disciplining and managing your dog but it also provides additional benefits for your dog’s overall health. The exercise that your dog gets by playing fetch enables it to become more physically active. Take note that your dog needs to have the outlet that it deserves. It gets hyperactive or sometimes destructive because the dog feels that there is a major miscommunication between the two of you. A dog that jumps annoyingly or plays in the garbage regularly, could be demonstrating symptoms of lack of stimulation.

Just walking your dog isn’t quite enough to give it what it really needs. Playing fetch is the answer, especially for high-energy dogs. It’s a very efficient method of getting your dog tired. You can play from half an hour to an hour per day just to get it moving and eventually it will get tired. You can perform this from four to five times a week. Of course you need to consider the weather. During summer or days that are unusually hot, it’s best that you lessen the fetch duration. It is essential that you give your dog some breaks in between, fresh water – and read your dog’s actions before concluding your session.

Dogs can be a nuisance or even destructive if they enter hyperactive mode. Hence, playing fetch is one solution (if not the best) for effectively managing your dog’s behavior. You give it what it wants (attention, exercise and play) and when it gets tired, it reciprocates what you need: A peaceful atmosphere.

How To Train Your Puppy To Do 8 Things In 7 Days

How To Train Your Puppy 8 Things In 7 DaysPhoto – www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS_VcLRmCoI

This video by Zak George’s Dog Training rEvolution serves both as a great introduction and recap for puppy owners. Puppies naturally need much attention in order to achieve progress effectively.

If you’re a new puppy owner, you will undoubtedly want your dog to learn the “basic” obedience commands. These commands will serve as foundations for more complicated commands in the future. Always keep in mind that you need additional patience for your puppy. This developmental stage would be critical for your puppy and it would be best to establish better discipline during this period. The great takeaway from this video is what Zak is trying to highlight, which is controlling the puppy’s environment for the first six to 12 months. This would be one of the most critical aspects of your dog obedience training process.



In the video, Zak, the trainer, showcases different situations regarding puppy behavior. He uses a Shuba Inu to demonstrate an effective dog training process. Zak utilizes the “setting up for success” method wherein the puppy gets a reward during the early stages of training for every command followed properly. He starts by addressing the issue of puppy biting. In the video, you can see the puppy tends to be very excited and thus leads to biting. The trainer then tries to ward off the puppy’s attention towards a toy then start his training by giving a treat every time the puppy stops biting. Note well that the puppy should not feel as though it is being rewarded by biting – and that’s why you must have proper timing when giving the treat. The trainer then moves on to lead the puppy inside a play pen by also using a treat.

The puppy in the video has been trained already with some obedience commands. The Shuba Inu already knows the sit, lie down, up, and the leave it alone and look at me commands. Zak then assists in recapping these commands and also adding very important obedience commands which are the ‘come when called’ and ‘stay’ commands. When you call your dog, your voice will serve as an integral part of your training success. Aside from the treat, the dog gets motivated because it does things voluntarily. For the stay command, the trainer showcases how to gradually train your dog by rewarding it as it progresses and takes a longer duration of staying in position.

Always seek to keep training fun and enjoyable for your puppy. Another important thing to take note of is to socialize your puppy as much as you can. Try to get it acquainted with as many people and other dogs as you can. This will encourage more positive scenarios in the future.

How To Teach Your Dog To Play Dead

This video by Treatpouch.com is an interesting take on how to teach your dog to play dead. The trainer in the video utilized the clever technique of backchaining in order to train the dog the whole command. Backchaining is explained as teaching the last part of the trick before anything else. After this, you continue the chain of behavior working backwards. By using this technique, the behavior at the end becomes the most reinforced one. This means that your dog will become eager to complete the full chain in order to claim its reward in the end.

Reinforce the base position by letting your dog go down with a single hip relaxed. From here on, you have to lure your dog into the rest position then give it dog treats before you mention the release word. The essential thing is focusing on the dog’s roll where you lure it from the ‘down’ command towards the ‘rest’ command. It is understandable that flipping is the hardest part of this trick. You will need multiple practice sessions and considerable patience in order to accomplish this part of the process.

The next step is simplifying the hand signal. It is best that your hand signal works by having your palm turn from facing down to facing up. Repeating this over and over again will help your dog get familiar with simpler hand signals. You have to focus on the muscle movement required to make your dog go from a sphinx down into a relaxed down. Use the lure to start your dog in a relaxed down then add the ‘rest’ command.

The next step is when your dog is in a standing position, cue ‘Down’ then ‘Rest’. If you have to, you can give your dog a treat when it performs the down position with a relaxed hip. You then have to include the bang hand signal. It is best that you pair it with the other two signals. As your dog gets to master this, you have to eventually fade the other signals and keep the bang hand signal. You can tell that your dog learned the whole process if it only relies on the bang hand signal to perform the play dead trick.

In the video, you can see that everything is not as easy as it seems. One great lesson from the video is that a dog’s attention has a tendency to drift; but you need to keep it focused in order to achieve your goal of teaching it a specific command. It is understandable that there are various steps that the dog needs to understand in order to complete the whole process. This may take time, patience, and many repetitions before your dog will get it but as you can see in the video, it is effective!
