Many clients during an initial evaluation express their concern over the manners that their dog has at the door. The dog barks continuously at the door after someone knocks or rings the door bell. The dog acts aggressively when someone comes in. The dog jumps up on the guest. Some clients state that people do not come over to their house, because of the owner’s dog.
We teach a concept called- Place. The dog learns to go to place and stay there so that the owner can answer the door and greet the guest. By putting the dog “in their place”, you are in charge and not the dog. It shows a model for a desired behavior that you want your dog to perform. Let me show you what it looks like.
