1. Ignoring is Effective. If you want to teach a dog not to do something, ignoring is your best first approach. For example, if you’re reading a book and your dog tries to nudge your hand to get attention, it’s okay to ignore it.
Just like anyone else, your dog can learn when it’s appropriate to ask for attention and when to wait, and this is a core way of teaching that awareness.
2. Rewarding is Also Effective! What about when you’re working and your dog let’s you finish without bothering you? That’s a great time to reward with some affection or a toy. Reinforcing the positive behavior will help guarantee more of it in the future.
3. Running Interference. Sometimes, ignoring and rewarding isn’t enough. If your dog is doing something that is dangerous for him or herself or another person, step in and find a way to redirect your dog to another activity.
4. Be Mindful. One of the biggest mistakes you can make when you’re training your dog is being absentminded about how you interact with your dog. If you pet your dog when he’s performing a behavior you don’t want repeated, he will get the message that it’s okay to do that—pay attention to those moments and you’ll see amazing results.
