There are many different problems that dog owners have to address with their dogs. Some of these involve barking problems, digging problems and even jumping up on people. The best way to solve these issues is to prevent them before they start, training puppies to be obedient and live up to expectations through consistent reinforcement of the proper behaviors.Another important training issue that sometimes comes up is to stop dog chasing since it can be dangerous to the dog.There are different methods to use to stop dog chasing and preventing this problem requires that the individual be consistent with whatever method he chooses to use.
One way to stop dogs from chasing cars is to never allow the dog to be outside without supervision and a leash.Dogs should not be allowed to run freely outside since they put themselves at risk and endanger others when they come near the road.Even if the individual lives in a rural area where there are not many cars, the dog should be trained to stay within its yard, or territory, so that it does not get unto the road and cause an accident.This will also stop a dog from chasing individuals or other animals that come around the dog’s territory.Allowing a dog to chase people or other birds is endangering the dog as well as other creatures.This also helps to create aggression in the dog, something that dog owners do not want to foster in their family dog.
When the dog is chasing the owner, playing with him, the owner should not give the dog any reinforcement of that behavior.Even though playing chase can be fun, it creates an aggressive behavior in the dog as well as the chasing behavior that the owner would not want to occur around visitors to the home. The way to stop dog chasing is to refuse to run away from the dog when he tries to play in this manner. The individual should turn his back to the dog and refuse to give the dog attention when it exhibits this behavior.When the dog decides to calm down, then the individual should turn his attention to the dog in other to give it praise. Another way to help to reinforce good behavior and stop dog chasing is to tell the dog to sit when it is starting the chase behavior. When the dog sits, the owner should give it attention so that the positive behavior is reinforced and the negative behavior is avoided.
