Welcome Tyr to WAOK9!
Tyr is a 3 MONTH old Norwegian Elkhound who came to us to LEARN some basic manners, LOOSE leash walk, become POTTY & CRATE trained.
He eats THREE times a day. FEEDING time is always a great OPPORTUNITY for training as I'm using his daily FOOD anyway.
Since his a PUPPY, his ATTENTION span is short so we keep his SESSIONS short & SWEET as well and ALWAYS end on a GOOD note.
We want his EXPERIENCE of learning to be POSITIVE so there is NO harsh correction involved!
If he needs "CORRECTION" that would look like THIS: I'd be luring or GUIDING him back to the POSITION he was before he BROKE out of it.
In this video there is ZERO correction, it's all teaching and UNDERSTANDING each other.
With this exercise I create ENGAGEMENT which is very IMPORTANT for further training.
I become the SOURCE of food and FUN! So he becomes EAGER to interact with me.
Some people don’t know this. When a dog is wearing a vest that says “service dog” or “in training” it’s best to not try to interact or pet the dog. Working dogs are doing their best to stay focused on their owner’s wellbeing, so please don’t add to the distractions. #workingdog#servicedog#emotionalsupportanimal#dogknowledge

i need some help... so benji has been like superrr grumpy lately. he never used to thump at me but lately whenever i go into his room to open his pen or pick him up, he thumps at me and runs into his little hut thing. he used to come running to me whenever i even called his name but now he only really comes to me when he feels like it, which isn’t as often as it used to be. also he scratches at me to get away when i pick him up. he still seems to enjoy being pet and he loves to be on me when i have food but he’s just been super grumpy and not as friendly and affectionate as he used to be. has anyone dealt with these weird mood swings? does anyone have any advice?
