What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #67
Working wtih fearful dogs.
Lots of fearful dog training advice floating around and so much of it is just plain wrong and most of the time will leave you and the dog stuck or going back wards.
We work with lots and lots of fearful dogs, thousands of them so far, I meet hundreds a year at my seminar and over and over again, and the magic is always do more and not less. That means more pressure on the dog, more accountability on the dogs, more structure wit the dog and absolutely punishment for dangerous and unwanted behaviors. That’s the one that folks struggle with, that PUNISHMENT word, “why would you use punishment with a dog that is already fearful” well my really simple answer is that “IT WORKS” and it works in a big way just about every single time.
Dogs are already in a state of fear, they will stay suspended in a state of fear if you do not change things up with them. Most of the dogs will not take food, most do not have food drive or toy drive. Many will shy away from you or even bite you if you try to use any form of physical touch ie: petting/holding. Most will just freeze on you, so what happens owners get frustrated at lack of progress that the dog is making.
So move forward with your dog that is nervous and fearful, you don’t need to coddle the dog, you don’t need to treat the dog like it is made of glass, put pressure on your dog, learning the art of working with fearful dogs is something we have created over working with many fearful dogs.
