Please give dog training advice

My precious dog Tundra won't stay in the yard for anything.

I admit, see needs to be walked everyday but somedays I am just not physically up for it and now the weather is cold and windy (and of course she loves it). So ultimatly I may walk her once or twice a week. Starting tommorow I am going to try to walk her everyday.

She has an invisible fence which she pays no attention to. She knows the boundaries but if she wants to leave she will.

I live with my parents right now and they want me to get rid of her if she doesn't stay in the yard. My dog in NOT DISPENSIBLE. I HAVE TO FIX THE PROBLEM!

I watch Dig Whishperer on the Nation Geographic Channel an have his book. The show gets kinds corny sometimes but in terms of educational value it's great. He is a great dog enthusiast and must say I try to follow his fundementals. But I am obviously failing.

Now keep in mind in the house she is golden. I calm and listens to whatever I say. She rarely does anything wrong, in the house. When we walk she will walk normally. She tries to pull but after a few minutes of correcting she subsides. I have control over her in the house and outside when I am walking. The one thing she has a problem with is leaving the yard.

Do you think taking ym dog on hikes through the woods everyday would fix this? Or does the problem lies somewhere else.

Awww that's such a cute doggie.

I don't know anything about training dogs, but I love them anyway. Uhm, I know that training schools a very recommended, and from what I hear, they work wonders. :o

I think the problem lies in the fact that the dog has no sense of boundary as far as the "yard" is concerned, and does not recognize that it isn't suspossed to run off.

I'd have to imagine that an invisible fence isn't worth shit, which is demonstrated by what you've said. If she's going to be outside, it sounds as though you'll either have to tie her up or put in a real fence. I'm not sure how one could train her to stay in the yard otherwise, but I'm not much of a dog trainer. :shrug:

Yes. I definatly think you are right. Cesar Millan says "rules/boundaries/limitions". Invisisble fences can work because Gracie never leaves but has left before (very rarely). She understands these boundaries.

Just how can I show them to Tundra?

Check out these pics I just took. This is why I can't get rid of her, she's too fucking cute. I laugh at her everytime I look at her.




I checked out some information. I really seems to stem from a couple of problems. 1 she needs walked more. When I can't do this I think I am going to start using the tread mill. 2. She has a strong drive to hunt. She kills tons of shit and I see her eating it. She brought back a beaver in the fall. hahah, a beaver. she ate every bit too. So if I can challenge her in these two areas she might stay in her boundaries.

It would be nice to hear from some dog people. I am going to let this thread run a bit to see what we can come up with.

You walk your dog 1 or 2 times a week? No wonder she takes off, why would she want to stay there? No offense, but all dogs, especially huskies/snow dogs (which is what that looks like) needs a ton of exercise, and you're not giving your dog enough. Invisible fences are great, as long as you dont just install the fence and expect her to know the boundaries. What you're supposed to do is put up flags along the boundary line, put the dog on a leash and walk the boundary line with her and show her the limits. We have an invisible fence that came with a training collar that lets you use different levels of correction (shocks) or simply use unpleasant noises to let them know to not go any closer to the flags when you show them the boundaries. I'm not sure why your dog is outside by herself all the time anyways, but if she keeps getting away, you should either keep her inside and take her for MULTIPLE daily walks, or give her to someone who will take proper care of her. She might be "cute" and you might love her, but she deserves better. So either give it to her, or give her to someone who will.

EXACTLY

Like Liz said, you need to walk your dog around the boundaries you want set up for him. Just walk in a square around your yard and then give her a treat. Do this a couple of times a day. Go let her run around the yard afterwards, and if she comes back to you without going outside the boundaries give her a treat.

She'll catch on.

yes walking is very important, its in their instinct to follow their leaders in walk. when you walk your dog your telling the dog you are the boss + it gets to use its energy. your dog is a high energy kind of dog, it need LONG walks. if you dont feel up for long walks, get a backpack for it to give it some extra weight, fill it up with a few water bottles or something, but dont overdo the weight, this doesnt only give your dog more exersice you are also giving the dog a mission which is also importan thing. But your main problem is probably little exersice and not clear enough leader roles, this breed of dog you have loves to be used.. so my best advice is to give it a mission and lots of exersice, aaround the block is very little exersice for this dog, if you just want to do that you have the wrong breed of dogs, a chiuahua you can walk a few round around the blocks. walk it alot and you will see a changed much more happy dog. when it runs away its actually not because the dog is not good, its more likely your own fault



this is one of my dog, much like your breed this dog loves to be used. I walk it from 5 to 10 kilometers every day and its a perfect adjusted dog.


oh yeah forgot, using a training machine for the dog is a good idea but dont let it replace the walking with you with a leash between you which is your control of the dog and showing your in controll, walking is like i said not just about burning up energy, you, the leader, needs to walk it too.¨using just a mahine will probably not remove the problem with your dog running away, the dog is trying to tell you something, he tells you he is the boss there and then, so i think its unclear leader roles involved here

dog.com fourms

dogwhisper.com fourms


every dog i have had always stayed in the yard when they are puppies i walk them in the yard with a leash and i go to the borders and when they get just off the boundary i call them back or i say no and pull them in the boundary/road etc

then i walk with a leash and let go of it after a few weeks and when the dog goes off the boundary i call it back or say no and it comes back.

then it takes a few weeks of no leash training and thats it

i have no fences and a busy road in front of my house and the dog will walk the entire boarder sometimes just investigating but will not go out.

now when the dog has to go out all i do is go open up the door and the dog goes out by itself goes to the bathroom runs around after the birds etc (does not ever go out side the boundry but will sit there waiting to see if the bird will come back lol) and when she wants to come back in she comes to the door and barks once or twice

yeah i learn my dogs to bark once for getting in or getting out, a couple of barks to signal people and so on. I only use leash for my dogs the first year when training them. when they are done with the leash they are done with most of  its basic training, a leash is a very important tool in training. If basic training is done right you dont have to walk it to show where the borders is, i have never done this, this should be completly unneccesary , the dog wants to be around you all the time and doesnt run away if its well trained. . howeer you should show the dog restricted areas where it cant go, like on the road or in your strawberries. This can be done like the above poster says .

Getting your dog in the righ state of mind is also very important, dont train your dog unless its calm and ready to recive new information. and dont give your dog affection unless its completly calm.  spinning with its tail and when the dog jump up on you and you think oh what a happy dog and pets it, this is a very common mistake.

A calm dog is usually a happy dog, people think dogs think like a human which it really doesnt. The worst mistake people do is treating their dog like its a child or another human. When you come home and the dog jumps up one you and the tail goes in all direction it does look happy for most people, this is really stress signals , a dog never in packs jump up on their leader and spin their tale

you shuold picture yourself as a dog instead of picturing the dog as a human, you are the leader of the pack :smile: dogs in packs plays with eachother so play is also an importan role, but play shuold happen when you want it and for as long as you want it since you are the leader.  a dog that comes with its toys to you all the time even when you say no doesnt see you as their leader but still one of their pack so its testing which one of you two is the boss

One idea is to get the bike out. Take the dog for some running. It won't take as long as walking around forever. :grin:

Thanks for all the replies. FYI, I have two cats. I love them too. :hehehe:

By the way, Tundra = Alaskan Malamute(huskies were bread from these)

We have flags up on the invisible fence and have tried the setting boundaries by pulling her away from the flags when the collar beeps.

See I am disabled so there are days when I cant walk her outside. These are going to be the days I hook her up to the tread mill. I would never replace walks with this. I see cesar do it on his show all the time.

She is very well behaved. When we walk I usually put a leash on her and she walks next to me or is trying to chase me(or be chased). When she does leave the yard she will always come back when I call her. No matter how far away she is. (it might take her a minute) She seems to know that I am the dominat one, most of the time. But it's good to hear that walking and setting some boundaries should fix the problem.

I would love to ride a bike but I am no balance and can't. I think I am going to try to learn to rollerblade again. I would love her to just pull me down the street. But I reall do play with my dog all the time, just not walking. So I think the problem is very obvious.

BTW, what kind of dog is that elsig. And one last thing, I am the type of dog owner who will change my lifestyle to better benefit the dog. I will not get rid of my dog.

If you can't ride a bike because of your disability, perhaps you can set up a skateboard with a seat or some kind of sled with wheels that she could pull you on. A Malamute would love that kind of excersize.

You should watch the Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan has an amazing bond with dogs...watching him in action is sweet, that relationship between Cesar & dogs is truely a joy to behold. Check that out, and you'll learn a few tips.  You should check out his book too, that should help you out a lot.

"BTW, what kind of dog is that elsig. And one last thing, I am the type of dog owner who will change my lifestyle to better benefit the dog. I will not get rid of my dog"'''


your response is very good , im glad to hear this :smile: That dog is a mix of several arctic dogs including the type of dog you have and samoyed,  greenland dog and west siberian laika. i also have a pure samoyedy, a german sheppard and a rottweiler.  Good luck with yuor dog, as long as u are willing to change and adjust im sure its going to be ok. most problems with dogs is actually with the owner and not the dog and it may sound harsh but i think there is alot of people who shouldnt have a dog at all, maybe as much a s30% of dog owners shouldnt have a dog at all. But it sounds like your going to be just fine.

Try teaching your dog to shake jackass. If you would like help let me explain. Meet the pup at the waters edge take the stick/ bird as it comes out of the water just as the pup is going to shake step back and say shake. when the pup shakes praise.

Couldn't you figure this out on your own?

Yeah dude, good looking out.......you didn't come off as a dick at all, in fact you made me laugh. :laugh:
Plus that reminded me about my bad habit of posting, THEN reading the other responses. I don't do it all the time, but.......  Sometimes I get a great idea and want to get it down before I forget it & see what sort of response it gets.  This wasn't one of those cases, it was mere laziness on my part. :crazy:

I guess I still don't understand why the dog is alone outside when you know that she leaves the yard despite the electric fence.  I mean, you could go outside with her to make sure she doesn't run off, even if you're not necessarily running around with her, you're still there to call her if she starts to stray away from her boundaries.  I'm sorry to hear about your disability, but if you have a dog, especially a high energy dog like that one, you need to exercise it every single day.  Even if it's cold out or you have physical issues.  Maybe you could hire a dog walker/runner to do some a few times a week so that you don't have to deal with the physical stress every day? 

When we trained our dog, we used mostly treats and positive reenforcement.  If they do something right on the 1st try, you give them praise, and a piece of their food.  If they don't, you don't give them anything until they do it.  Once a dog is trained to do certain things, try to avoid repeating yourself if your dog doesn't listen the first time, this makes them tune you out.  For a while, we'd let our dog outside with us without a leash on, and the started not being great about coming the 1st time we called her, so we'd call her a few times until she came over, and then reward her.  All this taught her was that she could ignore us the 1st few times we called, and listen when she felt like it, and still be rewarded.  We made her a selective listener :tongue:  Now she listens the 1st time, or she gets nothing, and she knows it.  We exercise her every day off leash by playing fetch with a stick or tennis ball in a fenced in area.  When she's done that, she's calm and well behaved the rest of the day.  If for some reason we don't do that and she doesn't get enough exercise taht day, she gets antsy and misbehaves (whines, jumps up, etc).  A tired dog is a happy dog, and it sounds to me like you are someone who really cares about your dog and wants to make it work out, which is great.  Just make sure that you are firm and calm with her while training her.  Another options is, can you just install a normal fence?  It would be a little bit expensive, but even if you just fenced off a portion of the yard, you could ensure that she couldn't escape her play area, and she'd be safe :thumbup:  Or you could install one of those dog run things, that a leash hooks to that lets them run around a large area but they can't get away.  Just some options.  Good luck with whatever route you decide to take!

Get cheap flags and put them up in the border of the yard, walk the dog around the yard and use a negative command to denote the flags. The flags will be bad to cross, therefore establishing a boundary. Walk the dog around the perimiter of the yard on a leash and if it crosses the flag give it a negative reinforcement, when the dog stays in the boundaries positive reinforcement. Sooner or later you can get rid of the flags, this is how electric fence training is done but you can probably get the same effect with a quick yank on the leash rather than shocking your doggie. IMHO its cute too!

My dog is not outside by herself at all. She is inside with me most of the time. She sleeps inside and goes in and out pretty much when she wants. She is a really happy and well take care of dog. I don't neglet her in any other way except her walking, which I am changing. My dogs is a part of the family and is treated with equal respect. I really have an enormous amount of love/respect for her. She is in very good hands.

I try to follow Cesars guide to a happy balanced dog. His training method don't involve using treats. I have used these methods before but don't really like it. I don't like having to reward my dog everytime she does something good with a treat. I give her treats all the time in the house (say small bite or two of whatever I am eating). It's just a difference of technique. Nothing better not giving them treats but Cesar explains why he doesn't. Cesar actually does all his training with energy and usually silent. The dogs behave all commands sit, stay, lay down, ect without anything said to them. Using energy and exploiting the dogs natural instict to get them to obey is my goal. He explains this quite well in his book and where he comes from. I highly recommend the book. I am actually only part way trough it. It really helps.

A fence is not an option. My mom doesn't want one nor do my neighbors(they're cool so we respect them)

I got on some roller blades and let her pull me for a while. She loved it. I think I am going to do this more often. It was less work than actually walking and my balance issues don't play too big of a threat. I fell two or three time but luckly there was grass to fall into. I had a great time.

Try teaching your dog to shake jackass. If you would like help let me explain. Meet the pup at the waters edge take the stick/ bird as it comes out of the water just as the pup is going to shake step back and say shake. when the pup shakes praise.

Couldn't you figure this out on your own?

Well this guy does know his stuff then because treats are completly unneccesary, i wonder if this book is in norwegeian too? sounds like a intresting read. I teach my dogs all commands with both words and fingersignals but i rarly tell my dog what to do, dogs do feel your energy, a well trained dog knows you and what you want and you dont have to tell it what to do all the time, i see people who goes on with their dog, sit sit stay and so on and i see a frustrated dog standing next to them and is very unsure what to do.

I dont use treats in training, only when we are on long walks just to give them a little extra energy, I usually have dried rein meat as treat.

We started training our dog at 12 weeks of age, and since she was so young, pieces of her normal food were a great way to overcome her short attention span.  He also learned both voice and hand commands and we usually don't use them anymore, but bring them with us on walks where she will be offleash to give her if she does something new that we are teaching ner.  Labs are very food oriented, and every book we read on them said that it was a good idea to use pieces of their kibble to train them.  I don't regret it because while I'm sure that Cesar's methods work just as well, we have a happy well trained pup :smile:

Nice dog. I had an alaskan malamute and they are difficult to train. They need much more attention and time then many other breeds.

I think you are doing your best, considering your circumstances. The fact your malamute will come back to you, even if it's way the hell off in the distance, is a feat in itself.

For 4 years I was employed for training dogs(more of a helper than anything though)...and I had lots of problems with just getting my dog to come when I called it. When he was almost 2, things started turning around.

People gave some great advice about getting it out more, being more active than it already is.

I bought a harness for my dog and whenever I could in the winter, I'd have him pulling me on the cross country skiing trails. That dog could pull me and 2 friends uphill at like 20mph! haha slight exaggeration, but man, he looked like a tire burning out in the snow.

When I wasn't doing that, I was walking him regularly. He really started to show improvement in a lot of areas with increased exercise.

yeah this breed loves to pull, a car tire or something can be used for this breed to train it. but its important to start slowly and dont overdo it to begin with since it hasent been used to this before.

People should know what their breed is normally used for and try to think about this when they train it, i train my german sheppard completly diffrent than my samoyed. and a rottweiler is completly diffrent than these two again., so they all get special training more suited for their kind of breed

You got to use two fingers like this, right to the neck.



Or keep it on a chain, or leash?

First you teach her SIT, STAY, and HEAL.
Then you walk your boundrie with her on a choke.
You need her to look at you for the OK, if she acts on a whim, you have to catch that. You have to teach her to ask you for permission. Treats give her motivation well that and aprasal. But to much and she becomes a beggar.
But walk the line and every time she goes to walk out from your line give her a sharp jab with the choke. Tell her to sit or heal. Walk the line don't let her go over it. Do this daily. Maybe a few times a day. Keep reinforcing the boundry, and her good behaviour.

Dogs will run and dogs will hunt. It's engrained in them all. It's how our relationship came to be. That dog needs to run, and get out it's energy.
It's a meditation for them, a zen practice thousands of years old.

Hi,
This breed of dog naturally needs to run, run, run, I would get a bicycle with a whip like dealio on the back (If you are able, sorry, you did say you had some physical problems because of your ailments).

The whip/antenna like dealio keeps the leash from getting into the bicycle tires by raising the leash when the dog gets close to the bike.  I love my animals, even got a sidecar to take him with me on motorcycle trips.  I used to have a huskie, and he never respected the electric fence either.

Good luck, hope you find a solution.
