Stopping bad behavior in your dog is much easier when you are proactive. Many behaviors can be stopped before they even take place. Do not wait until the unwanted behavior starts. many times it is too late to get a good response from the dog once it escalates.

    Damn I needed to hear this! I have a 3.5 month old GSD and he's barking like crazy to other dogs when I take him out. Disctracting him works but not always. Now I will disctract him before he can go crazy barking. Thank you for this video! It makes so much sense

    i need some help here and any followers of LK can pipe in. I am proactive .I need to end this issue with my dog! Everything but this is GREAT!   I have been following and doing what you teach from the time i got my 8 week old Malinois who is now a year old. I am home full-time and i can honestly say I put the work in. This nice structured loose leash walk goes great until there's distractions especially another dog .Then he starts pulling and the tension on the leash is ridiculous.I can't have him pulling me over and that's my concern.  I have done all the stuff in the home for the last year and continue to work on this unwanted behavior on our walks with distractions. I have tried no words just moving forward with the tension on leash he is creating. I've tried high value distratcitons , working him etc…  I have changed my behavior and just can't seem to make this behavior a thing of the past! I have tried flat collar, slip lead and the only thing that has given me some control is the prong and sometimes with that he gets reactive and bratty! I have tried ecollar and he ignores it.  I really don't want to use a prong or put the blame on his HD and HP so give me some insight here. I want him to exist around other dogs and be like its no big deal. I don't go to dog parks and don't really want him playing with other dogs because Max's gets to rough and thing escalate. So we don't do that.

    Great examples thank you! How do you suggest to be proactive when it comes to dogs barking at the front window at other dogs?

    love your videos! I just found them today. I have two great dogs, Shepherd 15 months old, and corgi 8 years old, who have both been obedience trained and do very well in the house. They are both socialized to other dogs and guests, very friendly. my isssue is that in the past few months my shepherd​ has been going after our chickens when one gets out of the pen. the corgi doesn't interact with them much, and the shepherd I've been teaching him the "leave it" command and he walks away from the chicken, but once the chicken freaks both dogs' prey drives kicks in and I almost can't stop them from going after it. my last resort is the e-collar to promote the "leave it" command. do you have any suggestions for using this training tool to fix this behavior before it escalates? normally the chickens are separate from the dogs but one escapes once in a while.

    My spouse has always told me I correct them before they do anything wrong. Well, now I know it's a good thing. Thanks Larry. Have followed you since we got our Queensland Heeler/Boxer pup. She is a very good girl most of the time. She just turned a year. We look at every opportunity as a training opportunity.

    Makes sense. Just the same with kids. We've got to set our dogs up for success not failure. Nip it in the bud. Thanks for your tips. I'm going to pull out the old crate again!
