Is your dog ever a “Pain in the neck?”

Is your dog ever a “Pain in the neck?”

Do you ever experience those moments when your dog is a proverbial, “Pain in the neck”? Maybe
you’re sitting at your desk, and your dog won’t stop shoving his head into your lap and
demanding attention? Or maybe she’s just restless for whatever reason. Or feeling needy?
 
Well, here are a few things you can do:
 
#1: You can put the dog in the kennel/crate. Just because your dog is demanding attention,
doesn’t mean that he’s always going to get it. Remember, you’re the Alpha dog. You’re the
pack leader. If you let your dog decide when to play, you’re communicating an important
lesson: That you’re NOT the pack leader, and you DON’T make the decisions. I recommend
putting the dog in the crate when you’re sure that your dog has already been exercised,
played with, and given attention. In other words: When you know his demand for
attention is a dominance ruse.
 
#2: Put the dog into a formal “down-stay.” Even though your dog won’t be actively
doing something, he will be inactively concentrating (and becoming conditioned)
to hold the “down-stay” for longer and longer periods of time.
 
#3: Even better than #1 and #2, you can use your dog’s restless mood to practice
active obedience exercises. Channel her need for attention into something positive.
You’d be surprised at how just 10 minutes of working your dog through the various
obedience routines (sit, down, heel, come, stay) can “wear your dog out,” mentally.
Then, finish up with a good 20 minute (or more!) “down-stay” exercise while you’re
going about your household chores.
