This video explains the most important part of stopping unwanted behavior. Applying proper punishment BEFORE you teach the dog what you do want. So many folks out there are being misled into thinking that step two (the rewards and thousands of reps of good behavior) should come first. But the truth is, no matter how much you teach the dog what to do, if you don’t make the act of aggressing toward another dog intolerable the dog will always continue to do it, and you will continue to struggle. The key is to address the physical act of aggression, as well as the mental thought process of it. Punish the act of even thinking about acting out.
This was all done within minutes of Jeff taking the leash. He had never met the dog or owner, and he didn’t need the back story to begin training. Bad behavior is bad behavior. What you don’t see in the video is the second step-massive rewards for good decision making and thousands of reps to pattern a new behavior. The first step of the rehab process is triage. We must first stop the “bleeding” and get the dog to stop making dangerous choices.
