Should I Say NO To My Dog?



Did your parents (or someone you really love) ever say ‘no’ to you?

Pretty sure your answer is YES.


Post being told ‘no’ – Did they love you any less? Did you love them any less?

A likely – NO.


Did you repeat the action that caused the ‘no’?

With consistency, I am confident you learnt to avoid that unwanted behaviour.


I rest my case

Just like rewarding a dog for the right behaviour - being consistent and communicating that a behaviour is unwanted is also important.


Does ignoring the behaviour work? Sure, it does, on some dogs – not all dogs. It depends on the personality of the dog and what stage of the learning phase it may be in.


If a particular method is not working after a couple of tries and your dog just does not seem to be learning the rules and boundaries you set - rethink your strategy and try again.


Be open to the various methods of training your dog. Most importantly, be fair to your dog. Keep striving for a better version of your dog.
