Harnessing the power of permission in dog training is the secret of my success. It’s how I can train dogs to the highest levels without the use of intimidation or physical punishment. Sometimes is anytime for a dog, and permissions make the anytime work for us. And it’s not just for training our dogs. We all want our relationships to have equity and trust.
In the episode you'll hear:
- The where, why, and what of permission in dog training.
- What teenagers driving a Lamborghini around a racetrack has to do with your relationship with your dog.
- Why sometimes is anytime.
- How to start using permission with one easy and fun game.
What do you do with more than one dog if one doesn’t sit before going outside for instance? Do none of them go out until all three of my dogs are sitting at the door or do I hold that one not complying to stay inside?
HI! In regards to your dogs that wanted to swim and one did not sit. What did you do?
Did that pup not want to swim and so you released the other dogs to swim, or did you have the dog who didn’t want to swim sit and make him swim.
Is this an example of IYC?
I used to tell my Whippet, my very first dog, to go get the squirrels NEVER thinking she could actually catch one. Of course the one time she did kill one. I had to praise her because she did exactly as I told her, but I never told her that again – be careful what you tell your dog, right?
This podcast is so good. I have just started HSD and my pup and I are doing well. My pup puts her front paws on my lap to tell me she wants on the sofa. I only want her to get up when I give her permission not at her instigation. Should I return her to her hot zone or how should I let her know she needs permission?
Thank you, I am loving all these podcasts. Now to break my bad habits.
Love the power of permission…thank you Susan. Awesome
Thank you. What games do you recommend after “itsyourchoice” do you recommend?
Thank you, that was an aha moment, while I have been training with permissions , IYC, sit at the door, wait when I take off the lead to go run in the park, I hadn’t realised the power that those actions can have. Wow so well explained
