Ever wish you knew what your dog was thinking? This video gives you insight into your dog's behavior to help you decode their body language.
A great compliment to the body language video produced by Irith Bloom, KPA-CTP,APDT of The Sophisticated Dog, LLC, this one provides insight into how dogs interact with each other. Dogs show "calming signals"to communicate with each other and resolve conflict. While this video is dog to dog, they also use these signals to communicate with humans!
Training Your Dog to be Left Alone

How to Stop Your Dog From Barking

Prevent Barking at the Doorbell
In this video, trainer Pamela Marxsen teaches how to train your dog to go to the crate at the sound of the doorbell. To occupy the dog in the crate, she uses a Kong to hold his attention. There are a wide variety of food puzzles are available.
The dogs in the following videos have food allergies. In the training process, their dog food kibble is being used. The procedure is much easier if you have a gooey treat like peanut butter or Kong liver paste that the dog can lick off of, or out of the muzzle. Shoving kibble through the muzzle is a little difficult.Please review the Muzzle Training Lesson Plan in conjunction with watching these videos.
Muzzles or Treat Baskets (Muzzle Training Part 1)
This video shows one way to make a muzzle into a treat basket. In this video, the muzzle used is too large for this particular dog. Also, the training is proceeding a little too fast for her. The goal is to have a positive experience with muzzle. At one point, this dog tries to back of out the muzzle. Take your time and go slow. This is a technique to be used with dogs that are not food aggressive, and are not aggressive to humans.
Muzzle Shaping (Muzzle Training Part 2)
This video shows how to shape putting on a muzzle using clicker training. The dog in the video is already clicker trained, which makes the process go a whole lot faster. If the dog is not clicker trained, the technique can still be used, but it will take a longer period of time. Even if you are not this successful in getting the dog to put the muzzle on by their self, it is still a fun game associated with the muzzle.
Crate Grate Muzzle Technique (Muzzle Training Part 3)
This video shows how to apply a muzzle to a dog that you cannot touch (for dogs that are aggressive towards humans). It involves using a crate and a grate made with PVC pipe. The handler is positioned too close if this were truly an aggressive dog. Standing to the side of the crate may be less intimidating for some dogs.
