Place a high-value object (one of your dog’s favorite things) on the ground. When your dog sniffs it, say “Walk Away!” and feed treats from your hand as you and your dog move away from the object.

Can a dog be trained in 2 weeks?

How do I get my dog to leave guests alone?

If your dog gets overly excited when a guest is in your home, give him a time out. Put him in his crate in a back room away from the noise and confusion.

Is it okay to tell a dog no?

There is nothing wrong with using the word “no” properly when training your dog. “No” should be said calmly and should mean, “That is not a behavior that I want.” “No” can also be a “no reward marker.” It can just mean that the dog will not get a reward for that behavior.

Have one person in the family conduct the training. Even if everyone in the family is using the same verbal commands, their timing will be slightly different, which could confuse the dog.

They can, Morgan says, but dogs don’t have the capacity to assign a motive to an emotion, which means being angry at you (or anything) isn’t something for which there is evidence.
