punisher, What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #141

What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #141

Getting a longer duration in Place or any obedience command for that matter can be accomplished with “punishment for non-compliance of a known command”, especially if you are trying to get a dog to be nice and calm. You can absolutely use whatever motivator you want to teach a behavior, there are many ways to do it. When your dog understands what you want, its time to add a consequence/punisher for breaking the command. It is fair to do as long as you also teach the dog what the punisher means and what to do after you apply the punisher.

For household pet dogs we want dogs to understand that commands like down and place have “calmness” built into it. It makes a big difference when working with family pets as for interior work especially.

Guilt Free Dog

She never makes me feel bad

Harlow is a sweet dog with many fine qualities, several of which I have already written about in a previous blog. In that piece, I discussed how incredibly nice she is, and I alluded to the fact that she welcomes attention from everyone but is not pushy about it. When we recently hosted Harlow again for 5 days while her guardian traveled for work, I noticed this quality of non-pushiness and thought a lot about how wonderful it is.

‘BOUNDARIES’: A new film

A review and Q&A with the filmmaker
A scene from the new film “Boundaries” starring Vera Farmiga and a supporting cast of rescue dogs.

Director-writer Shana Feste’s new, very personal film opens June 22, 2018. “Boundaries” is, as Feste noted, about “seeing your parent for who they really are—and possibly forgiving them.” Well, that’s one theme, but what grabbed our attention were the parts played by the film’s many dogs (and cats).

Feste’s own rescue dog, Loretta, has a prominent role, sharing the screen with the amazing 88-year-old Christopher Plummer (Jack), the engaging Vera Farmiga (Laura) and Peter Fonda in
a fun cameo.

Drugs for Shelter Dogs

NYC shelters to medicate all incoming strays

Dogs entering shelters are often extremely stressed, with cortisol levels three times higher than dogs in home situations. Reducing that stress is a kindness to these animals, and shelters use a lot of strategies to do that. From soothing music and lavender-scented infusers to comfy kennels with blankets and chairs to make them seem homey, there are a lot of options for helping dogs ease into life at a shelter. The goals are to help them as much as possible during their stay, and to place them into loving homes soon. Few of the stress-easing plans are controversial, but Animal Care Shelters of NYC has three shelters that will soon be enacting a new protocol that is bound to cause serious debate.

Talking Dog with ‘Boundaries’ filmmaker Shana Feste

The writer-director discusses her dog-centric inspiration with us.

Bark: Tell us about your dog Loretta.

Shana Feste: We rescued Loretta from a kill shelter here in Los Angeles. She was an “owner turn-in,” which always is heartbreaking because the animal is so confused as to how they ended up in the shelter. But I fell in love with her immediately—she was six months old and super scrappy and scared. When I first called her over to me, she did a little belly crawl that was so endearing.

We brought her home and she immediately hid in my laundry room for a week without even looking at our other rescue dog, Skipperdee. My husband and I had rescued her so we could give Skipperdee a playmate, but she wanted nothing to do with him! Turns out she was just waiting for her cone to be removed; once we took it off, she leaped into the air and played with Skipperdee for almost three hours straight.
