Pick A Boundary

Week 2 - WE'RE REALLY FOCUSING ON THAT RELEASE CUE BEFORE TOSSING THE TREAT!

  • Step 6:Feed lots, be generous for being on the bed – drip feed to the bed and don’t feed directly to the dog!  You want to feed CALMNESS and you want to feed the BED!  Slow feeding.  And then if you think you are feeding slow, get slower again!
     

  • Step 7: Release off with a cue (ex: free).  Throw food a second or two AFTER the verbal release cue 
     

  • Step 8: Wait for your dog to make the choice to go back towards, orient or even better hop on to the bed.  Reward hugely, massively and in a big way when your dog is back on the boundary (still no cue for getting on the bed)
     

  • Quick note: IF your dog gets off, just wait them out, don’t reward quickly even if they get back on.  Also, don’t tell them no and tell them to get back on the bed!  JUST WAIT IT OUT.  
     

  • If your dog gets on the bed by their choice on their own, they don’t need to wait for a release cue.
