Meet little Max, the cheeky yet adorable, Shih Tzu/Terrier cross. Max was being a pain in the neck, when his owners were watching TV. When something came on the screen that he was worried about, he would jump up and try to attack it, jumping at the screen and scratching the wooden TV unit in the process. In Max’s mind, there was something scary in that TV and because his humans were not taking charge, he needed to to protect the household 😊 This is easy to fix. I explained that the best way was to put Max on a lead while they were watching TV to begin with. That way they had more control and he would also become less dominant. Then the minute he showed any aggression they needed to hold the lead tight, get up and match through him to move his body away with a stern ‘No’. It does not matter which direction you are moving a dog’s body when you use this walk through technique as a correction, as long as it is away from you. In the dog world, the one that moves the other’s feet is seen as the leader, so this can be used as a very useful way to regain leadership over your dog This is what we were aiming for in Max’s case. Once you show your dog that you are taking charge, they will usually just relax and assume that you will take care of any other monsters that may come out of that TV 😊 If you would like help with your dog, please get in touch.
