Alex Victoria, Morin, Victoria discussed on Let's Talk Pets
If you have a dog problem right now in your dogs doing something you don't like is there something you can add or remove from the environment to make your life easier second is considered the situation. Have you taught your dog what to do in that situation dogs are pretty good at figuring out situations? But sometimes they need our help, just like with kids of applying one thing we've taught in one situation to another. The third is timing. Timing is so. Important with dogs that we have to let them know exactly when they're doing what we like we need to tell them. Hey, what you're doing in this moment? I like it and I'm going to pay you for with either a treat a toy or attaching the leash or opening the door doing something that they like. But that timing is so important, the fourth one is to rethink treats if your dog staring out, you or just really distracted, you could use a better treat. So if you're using a little training treat, you might consider a piece of cheese, or real meat. And then, of course, to the fifth one is to make training fun to just have a really good time with your dog keeps session short and have a smile on your face. And, and with some play, you said, something when with regards to adult learning, right human adult learning, but it's the same with dogs. Just remember, the dog's never stop learning. I mean ever stop learning doesn't matter, whether you're not training them letting his twenty four seven so everything you do with your dog. The dog is learning. The dog is learning and picking up cues from. The environment and your dog is learning twenty four seven. So I think that's an important thing because what I find with people is when you start teaching them. They've come quite rigid, and very serious with the dogs. And yet, when you when you finish that kind of training process then they relax. And then the dogs Morin acts. Well, I would like to have it that the person is relaxed when they are training and, you know, we use that word training. But because it's, it's a it's a no and used word. Right. But we really talking about teaching out we because there's that whole idea like you said, as well that when you when you training. Well, my dog is trained now as if the learning stop. And no. I mean, why, why do we say, why don't we say, we're training kids when did training stop with, with, with Alex Victoria. Yeah, yeah. I know I still train her. We have training sessions every night. I'm not training sessions. Like other weekends. I make sure that I get to training sessions in a day less a. Yeah, we teach children. Why, why are we training dogs but we don't teaching them? I don't know. I think we gotta do in future. Poke cost, I think we're going to do all tentative woods because there, there's so many tentative woods now that we use in training, teaching that we used to, to know. But I think it kind of brings them more of what we wanna bring to this whole world of actually that we're teaching Dokes training them. I think you're right. I think people get hung up on words. And you may think oh, you're just, you know being too specific. But it is it's really important. It puts you in that mindset and you start to think about we why, why am I doing this? And is this really working? Is this getting the result that I want so changing that mindset of thinking about teaching your dog versus setup formal training sessions because really think about raising kids. They're learning all the time. And sometimes, it's the experiences outside of the classroom, that teach them the most about life, and give them. The life skills that they really need, and working with groups and doing things and having experiences with the environment is sometimes more important than sitting down and doing their times tables. I think my daughter lend a very important life skill. Maybe it wasn't a life skill. But life lesson today at twenty eight degrees outside freezing cold and she wants to wear some address with legs. I'm like absolutely not. It is not happening. If it is dress up day at school. You have to wear something on your legs. What is this about teenagers that it doesn't matter, whether it is freezing freezing cold outside that they have to wear short skirts and ballads, not happening? So this, this taxi service refused to drive until she actually put somebody goes. Oh my gosh, if looks could kill my fourteen year old, she adored me this morning. She got out of the car could barely get out. Quick enough bless a hut. Anyway. So that was a life lesson learned. She thinking. I don't know teenagers. But yes. Anyway, I digress.
