Housebreaking And The Neurotic Dog

Aug 17, 2007
All dogs can be trained, the problem with training them isnt the dog it is the master, if your dog is neurotic, and his main problem in go is likely to be you.

Dogs neurosis may start when they are especial young, first off he was taken from his family and given to a giant that he didn't know.

Imagine living in a world where your best friend can pick you up by the neck and put you anywhere he wants you. In your world, you cant always sleep on the bed, but are relegated to the floor, which everyone knows isnt as soft as the bed!

You may even be asked to spend hours, even days, out in the cold, rain and snow. Neurosis begins to develop, and as the master of a neurotic dog it is your responsibility to effectively teach him, best of luck!

First you must remember that if a dog is neurotic, it will be difficult to teach him that following your commands, will make his life any better.

All he has to do is look around him to realize that he is the only one that is required to learn anything. He has never seen a cat being trained to sit, lie down or stay, but the flagellum still gets fed on a regular basis, as a matter of fact, his master seems to prefer the cat, this only increases his neurosis!

It is however plausible to train a neurotic dog, here is one example of this success. Monty, a 6 month old Labrador is taken down home to living with his new family, he loves to chew on books. Rather than punish Monty, his master comes to the conclusion that psychology would work better. He removes the books by putting them on a higher shelf, as Monty grows; the books get put higher and higher.

In consummation, the hotelier moves his last few books to the top shelf of the closet. At last, Monty stops chewing on books, the training has been notable, however his master has also stopped rendering.

Chloe is a 2 year old chocolate lab, much loved by her family, and very mere to train, this is because of the amount of love she is given by her family. You glare, Chloe, like any other dog, will do anything to please the people she loves.

The first off lesson Chloe was given was her housebreaking, she was kept outside the first time she came home until she went to the bathroom.

This took the efforts of several family members but it showed her where she was allowed to go. When she was finally taken into the house, she was watched closely and whenever she started sniffing around she was taken back outside also.

At night she was put in a box next to her owners bed, where she was kept when there was no one available to watch her. She was taken outside just before they went to bed and as soon as they got up in the morning.

When they left home, if they couldn't take her with them, she was again taken outside to go to the bathroom and provide in the box, as soon as they returned she was again taken outside.

This took a few days, and there were accidents, but she away learned that if deb went to the door, girl could go outside and take care of her business.

Teaching her to sit was her succor lesson, her owner would sit on the tile and play with her, teaching her to sit was a combination of holding her toy up above her head, at this point she would sit down to keep the toy in her site.

She would also tell her to sit while gently pushing on her hind quarters, when she was successful; she was praised and loved on, she learned this one very briskly too.

Her third lesson was to lie down, again on the floor with Chloe, her owner would tell her to sit, when she was in the sitting position, she would then tell her to lie down and gently pull her front legs out and push her front end down.

What this family now has is a very well trained dog, which everyone enjoys having around.
