2. You need to use it as a great method to exercise the commands that are following stay, down, l k, wait, go on it, leave it, drop it.

This means they’ll get to rehearse paying attention for your requirements whenever they’re in a state of high arousal (chasing and tugging) and learn how to c l down quick (drop it and take a nap) once you state so. Handy for reactive dogs who will be focusing on impulse control.

Flirt Pole Rules you shall use
1. Puppy must take a nap, l k at you, leave the model alone, and watch for you to definitely launch them, before playing.
3. After having a few passbys, reward them by permitting them to get the doll.
4. Allow them to tug them to “drop it” until you tell.
5. Ask them to lie back and hold back until these are generally calm. Then begin once more.
6. Change direction every once in a little while, which means that your dog is not always running one of the ways.
7. In the event that dog grabs the model before you say “take it” or perhaps is mouthy or leaping on you simply take a time out and/or start over.
When you should miss out the Flirt Pole
1. If the dog has joints that are bad accidents that may be frustrated by fast modifications of way and bouncing.
2. In case the dog does not understand the cues that are following wait, go on it, keep it, drop it. Training with treats first, then the tug toy, move on to then the flirt pole.
3. Should you not know the dog well. It is perhaps not safe to rev up an dog that is unfamilar. Although this is regarded as my in history fave t ls for shelter dogs (it tires them down so that is fast, they need to understand fundamental commands and you also must have a relationship using the dog, before getting them super psyched. Set up a bond that is working – make sure you’re chatting with one another – then begin sluggish.
4. If this overstimulates your puppy into the true point which they can’t settle down after. You understand your dogs. If it isn’t a g d fit for them, just pass.
5. When your dog believes it is dumb. Some dogs simply don’t dig it.
