(Avoidance method) When the owner cannot control the dog, avoid the environment that produces bad habits, so as not to let it have the possibility of producing bad habits. For example, if the owner is not at home and the dog bites the furniture, the cage can be closed when the owner leaves, and the dog will have no chance to make mistakes and will not make mistakes. After waiting for a few months, the dog will get used to the behavior state of “not biting the furniture when the owner is not at home”. Dogs who have been accustomed to cages since childhood are released when they are adults and will not be caged and will not bite furniture. It is through this training method that they are successfully trained. Another example is training puppies. When passing a garbage dump, the owner will lead the dog to run there every time, so as not to let him have the opportunity to enjoy the “fun of picking up garbage”. When the dog becomes an adult, it will naturally not like to go to the garbage dump. This avoidance method is very humane, but the training time is long, and it usually takes several months or a year or two to be relatively stable. Therefore, this method is generally not used alone to correct the bad habits of dogs. It should also be used in conjunction with the other methods below. .
(deliberately making bad law) Under the circumstances under the control of the owner, intentionally creating the conditions to produce a bad habit to make it produce a bad habit. Give negative stimuli or punish it the moment it goes wrong. (The best time to punish is: the dog is about to produce bad behavior but has not benefited from the bad behavior; or the punishment is in the process of producing bad behavior. Punishment for not eating in the mouth or just starting to eat. If the dog is ahead of time, shake the rope when the dog is about to pick up the pace or just start to pick up the pace, instead of waiting for it to rush far ahead to correct it .) In addition, deliberately making a bad law can not create all the conditions for it to produce a bad habit at one time, it should be involved step by step. First introduce less likely conditions to entice it, and then introduce more likely conditions to entice it to make mistakes. If you correct the dog’s disorderly eating, you can first lure it with food that it does not like very much. If it is deceived, it is punished, and if it is not deceived, it is rewarded. After the dog’s ability to resist food is consolidated, it will be lured with more tempting food. If the dog makes a mistake when more than one condition is met, then introduce one of the conditions to train it, then move on to the second, the third… . In the end, multiple conditions appear at the same time to induce it to make mistakes. For example, when training dogs to accompany the crowd, first let the dogs adapt to the presence of one training assistant, and then introduce two, three, four … until the dogs can also be accompanied on the street.
This kind of training does not mean only punishment, when the dog stops making mistakes and pays attention to the owner, it should be rewarded with what it likes the most. Only dogs will know: If you can’t resist temptation, you will be punished, and if you resist temptation, you will be rewarded. Dogs will prefer to resist temptation.
This is an important method of correcting bad faults, and it is also the most commonly used method. Episodes 8, 9, and 10 of the textbook “Genius Master Genius Dog Classic Edition” spent nearly three hours explaining the means of correcting bad faults.

(Orthodox education method) Training it in some obedience subjects can also reduce the occurrence of bad habits. Correcting a bad habit is like changing a problem child. In addition to preventing it from doing bad things again, we also need to teach it the right knowledge so that we can reform him well. Although this method is not immediate, it is one of the most important ways to correct bad habits. If you train more obedient subjects, the bad habits of dogs will naturally decrease and disappear completely. The professional dog training textbook “Genius Master Genius Dog Classic Edition” describes a full set of obedience subject training, which can be used as a reference for learning.
(Incompatibility method) Some bad habits can be trained by a subject that is incompatible with this bad habit, thus reducing the chance of it developing bad habits. Such as: the dog picks up food randomly, and trains the objects to accompany them. It is impossible for the dog to pick up the objects on the ground at the same time. These two behaviors cannot be performed simultaneously and are incompatible subjects. In addition, the dog can also be trained to run with the owner, because the dog will not pick up things on the ground when running. As long as you use your brain, you can find many ways.
(According to orders) Trained to: Let the dog behave “on command”. For example, we can do not need to correct for the time being, we can train it to pounce first, and when the “flash” password is given, let the dog pounce on it, and then reward it immediately. negative stimuli. When the dog reaches a very high conditioned reflex, it does not hear the “flash” password, and it will not jump on people. For example, to correct the dog’s random biting, we can train the dog to bite. The dog has released its behavioral desire during the bite, and will no longer think: “I want to bite.” He will think: “The owner will give it to me. I don’t need to forcefully bite things if I get a chance, because it’s not good for me.” Some people say that dogs trained in biting subjects are not easy to control and are more likely to hurt people. That’s what happens when the biting subjects are not successfully trained. The real bite is when the dog bites according to the command or when someone violates the owner. Because this subject is often reviewed, the dog’s desire to bite is released during training, and the behavior of biting will be corrected. Conversely, some dogs are born to bite, they have excellent genes for biting, but they are not properly trained and locked up for long periods of time. If such a dog is released, it may bite people and chase animals. Such dogs learn to act according to orders after being trained. On the one hand, they train the “bad habit” as a guard subject, on the other hand, they correct the bad habit of biting.
(Time Consumption Method) Ignore it. Let it go away naturally.
(Removal of motivation method) to find the root cause of the dog’s bad behavior. remove this reason. For example, some dogs bite their buttocks, which may be caused by parasites or loneliness in their bodies. Knowing the reason we found the key to solving the problem.
