STOP DOG DEMAND BEHAVIORS

Demand behaviors are identified as anything a dog does repeatedly that is undesirable for the person that it is directed towards. You can train your dog to stop these behaviors using humane, logical, strategies. 

little badger dog is angry over whiteDogs need certain things each day. The typical list might include food, water, physical exercise, mental exercise,  play, physical touch and chewing outlets. When a dog wants something, they have limited ways of communicating their needs. To a dog, jumping on a person is a logical way of getting attention. If that bechavior is rewaded and the dog will do it again. Even if they are gently pushed off of someone, this is still attention and they might seek it out again.

Examples of demand behaviors include:

  • Barking
  • Nipping
  • Jumping
  • Stealing items to initiate chase
  • Repeatedly dropping a ball in someone's lap
  • Pawing

Demand behaviors are often a symptom of boredom, confusion, lack of proper management strategies, or under-exercise. With my help, you can create a daily strategy to provide your dog with proper boundaries, physical and mental stimulation. A happy, calm dog has no need to exhibit repeated attention-seeking behaviors. 

One key strategy for a happy, well-balanced dog is to notice the "good" things that he does. Pay attention to when he is calm, quiet, not jumping and not destroying anything and toss a treat, give verbal praise or throw his favorite toy for him to chase. Rewarding behaviors as you notice them is called "shaping" and is one of the most powerful dog training strategies. I can show you logical, effective strategies to communicate with your dog by shaping and other dog training commmunication methods.

WHY SHOULD YOU HIRE JEFF MILLMAN DOG TRAINING?

little badger dog is angry over whiteHow can you feel confident that when you hire me, I will provide you and your family, logical, effective and humane strategies to solve your dog training problems? How can you be sure that it will be worth the money? Why can't you just hire the kid down the block, take a class at the closest dog training school, or look on YouTube for all the answers?

I would ask the exact same questions, and I do, whenever I hire someone. I do research, I talk to friends and neighbors, I look at Yelp and Google Reviews and then I make a decision.  

Can you learn how to train your dog watching YouTube videos, or hiring the least expensive trainer you find? Maybe. But, there is a good chance you will spend that time and money and realize that you really did not get the results that you were looking for. Is it worth it spending time and money and then have to do it again?
