“Go to Bed” for Agility Dog Impulse Control

Once again, Amanda Nelson takes time to fully explain how to start impulse control with this lesson.

This is the first in a series on working with a dog with impulse control issues using a “go to bed.”

Amanda starts her puppies with this exercise, and it is great for older dogs to improve self control.

Using it as a place of calm for your dog by reinforcing that behavior, it easily transfers to practical uses.

Whether you have company over or are going to an agility trial, your dog now has a “safe” place to relax.

Some dogs don’t have a natural “switch” from active to calm, if you see how this exercise can help be sure to click LIKE.
