Behavior & Training > How do you control...actually stop..

"Actually, puppies and dogs rehearse all of the four f's of adult behavior, fleeing, fighting, feeding and reproduction. Of the four, we tend to put too much emphasis on the reproductive rehearsals. "

Thats true, but when a pup is just doing it out of frustration, for example the other pup is ignoring him, such is the case if he's already playing with another or is just plain tired, it's can be an attention getting behavior and even if that's not the initial intention, because he rewarded with the attention, it quickly becomes a learn attention getting behavior.

I agree with that in the traditional sense. Rolling and other force methods such as helicoptering are completely unnecessary and the partnership, but it's not level partnership. Their is control (dominance) coming from your side. No control on our part can quickly lead to some pretty serious problems. Their are many ways to control even with the social dominance theory. For example if your the only group with food and the other group has none, they're probably going to give up control without any aggression, making the side with food the dominant side.

No their not, you do the clicking, they figure out what you want through luring and directing, which of course is just a method of training, basically just teaching him what you want. Doesn't matter how you control or dominate. They get the food when you click, but it come' s from your hand, which means you control the food. Part of social dominance in animals is who controls the food.

You don't need to know what control means to actually control, dogs don't put that much thought into it, for example when a male fights another male for a female, does he know he's trying to win control over the right to breed, of course not, but it's still a dominating behavior. Or a dog thats pulling the lead, he's not purposely trying to dominate the walk, but he is controlling or dominating the walk by making you go that way. Really I could go on and on, but I think you get my point.

Their are really numerous reasons dogs hump, including, but in no way limited to, dominance. On example of humping not related to dominance that I've seen in countless puppy parties is when you have a puppy start humping a another puppy just to get the attention of the other and the other turns around and starts playing with him. Unfortunately, the behavior was just reinforced as way to get another pup to play with him. Any behavior that creates a good result is going to repeat.

Haven't had a chance to read all the posts, but I'm sure considering the subject, it's lively. The meaning of dominance is to control. Dominating behavior means trying to control. That's really the nuts and bolts of it. It's a subject I believe people really like to over complicate. Whether or not your dog is showing dominate behaviors is really a mute point, it's the behavior itself you need to treat.

Here's a vid of Mai Mai and I play training with a flirt pole called the chase it. It's a great way of proofing impulse control.

Just out of curiosity, don't you carry some kind of dog deterrent like a squirt bottle with vinegar and water in it or a loud fog horn? I know I would be nervous having my wife walk the dogs without some kind of deterrent. There are to many people out that have no control of their dog, never mind obeying the law. Anyway glad your both ok.
