Dog Training Traps: How to Avoid Creating Unwanted Behavior Chains

Posted on March 9th, 2021 by FetchMasters in Uncategorized

Dog training can be tricky, and at FetchMasters Dog Training in Denver, we pretty much encounter all of the mistakes that can be made. One of the big dog training traps we see is the creation of unwanted behavior chains.

Unwanted behavior chains typically occur when an inexperienced trainer, or a dog owner attempting DIY training, attempt to teach a dog an alternate behavior in order to fix some problem. But in the process of training the dog to perform the alternate behavior, they actually reinforce the unwanted behavior.

Yeah, we know … it’s tricky. That’s why Tom and Linda Aaron discuss unwanted behavior chains — and how to fix them — in this brand new episode of The FetchMasters DogCast.
