– Hey, everybody, how are you? It's Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 Training with my What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the day, tip number 36, state of mind. One of the things that we really excel at at the training center,
at my seminar series, we talk about it all the time, is let's all be more conscious
of our dog's state of mind. It's not just enough to do
like an obedience command, like down, so say your dog's in a down, but they're like on alert. That's not what you want. You want a dog, when you tell it down, this is household stuff, right? Or like in an outdoor cafe, or somewhere where you're
gonna be for awhile, or you know what I'm talking about. When you tell a dog down,
you want them to think, "I'm gonna be here for awhile. I might as well just hang out." A lot of times you'll
see videos of our dogs at our training center and they're like, man, them dogs look bored.
Why don't you show some high energy dogs? Those are high energy dogs, but we've trained them to just be calm. Not shut down, calm. Calm on command, COC, acronyms, COC. So do me a favor, work on state of mind. How do you do that? Lots of duration stuff, and you actually can correct
an aroused state of mind. Jeff Gellman, Solid K9 Training with my What Would Jeff
Do? tip of the day, tip number 36, still going strong, baby.
One dog training tip a day in 2018. Madly in love with you, and
I will talk to you tomorrow..
