I have a 6 month old lab that we started out treat training, He was doing great until he hit adolescence. The come/here command began to become a chore which is mostly my fault for leaving him off leash. After watching the first video allot of that is cleared up now.
Thanks again for the follow up. So far I am very pleased with the product.
1- This is referred to as submissive urination (happy pee or excited pee). To deal with it you want to address the dog and the people greeting the dog:
- People greeting. Have them ignore the dog. Don’t bend over the top of the dog. Avoid eye contact, high and low pitched tones. Have them crouch down and allow the dog to approach them rather than them getting in the dog’s space.
- The dog. Work on the sit and/or down command. You need to have a dog that stays very well. Submissive urination comes from a ‘wild’ state of mind whereas obedience comes from a controlled and calm state of mind.
2- Yes, I’d use the e-collar to work on teaching the down command. Make sure your dog has an understanding of this command, though, before you start perfecting it with the e-collar.
3- Yes, you can teach several exercises at once. You don’t need to perfect one before moving on to the next.
