You Get What You Reinforce! Like it? Reward it!!! Don’t like it? Ignore it!!!
When your dog does something you don’t like (thinking jumping, for example), it’s probably because that behavior has been reinforced in the past. Do you push your dog off you repeatedly, say “off!” or “no!”? Guess what---you’re reinforcing the behavior you don’t like. Your dog is getting attention & even though you think it’s negative attention---it’s good attention to him! So jumping his getting him what he wants!
What should you do for jumping or other behaviors you don’t like? For starters, ignore it. Don’t touch or talk to your dog & leave his presence if necessary. Don’t reinforce the bad behavior!
Now think about this----your dog approaches you calmly & sits (or stands). Like it? You bet! Reward it with a “good boy!”, pet, treat or toy! Catch your dog doing the good thing & reward him, which can help him learn to repeat the good thing again!
Watch how what you do can help to influence your dog’s behavior! Want to know more? Consider Camelot’s dog training programs!
