Pupdate - Ollie
Unfortunately, this was our last session teaching Ollie his basic manners. While he is doing very well, he still gets excited when someone knocks on the door. Today we taught him to Go to Place so he had something "to do" when there are visitors. He caught on very quickly and learned to go to and stay on his blanket when his owner walked to the door and opened it. Remember, when your dog is practicing an unwanted behavior, instead of punishing him ask yourself, "What do I want him to do instead?" and reinforce the heck out of it so THAT is what he wants to do.
