This is especially important if your dog is reactive (meaning they can overreact in response to certain triggers). It’s embarrassing and frightening when your dog is barking and growling at other dogs or people, but if you get worked up, it will only feed your dog’s reaction. However, if you project an air of relaxed confidence, it will help your dog trust you have things under control. Just as you’d expect a paycheck for your hard work, dogs deserve to be paid, too. After all, as much as your dog may love you, making you happy isn’t their only goal. Too often, people expect their dogs to listen and behave, just because.

“Finished” in this sense means that your dog can hold it for a reasonable amount of time. Many fully house-trained dogs will clearly indicate when they need to go to the bathroom by sitting at the door, or pawing and whining at their owner. If your healthy adult dog can hold it for only two or three hours, but waiting any longer means they have an accident, it’s time to go back to the basics and work on extending their schedule. Start by arranging a confinement area where it will be easy to clean up accidents.

If you take it step by step, you will find the task to be far less daunting. If you’re interested in taking your dog training even further, be sure to check out AKC’s Canine Good Citizen Program.

As explained earlier in the tip on proofing, you need to train your Husky to obey commands in all environments and all conditions. This means the Husky only learned those commands in one environment and only in certain conditions. One of the reasons a lot of people feel that Huskies are untrainable is because they stop training too soon. If your Husky doesn’t listen to a command, stop and reset the training scenario. Don’t repeat the command over and over in the hopes that your Husky will listen. You can see an example of counter-conditioning in my guide on training your Husky to stop jumping here.

Basic training lessons should take place in a familiar, distraction-free environment. Then there are the puppies that are not motivated by food at all! For those puppies, try to find a toy they enjoy that they can get when they do a good job. Well, unfortunately that’s why so many teenage dogs are turned over to rescue groups and animal shelters.

By nightfall they would be positioned around the city as well-trained and heavily equipped Russian forces closed in. The war’s first dawn—Thursday, February 24th—broke gray in Kyiv, and a fine drizzle settled on streets full of pedestrians seeking the comfort of routine. At a busy intersection, joggers ran their morning loops while a man walked his pug past a work crew boarding up windows.
