In another room where they’re not in a Position to get to those areas until You’ve done sufficient boundary training Like all things in dog training boundary Training can’t really be taught Passively so make sure you give them Your full attention applying the Techniques that I’m gonna go over today When I was over here the other day I Some food out on the counter and I Walked out for just maybe three seconds And she was all over it first let me Confirm that Luca can do a basic stay While I walk away Luca Stay that’s nice you’re doing terrific Okay so I’m satisfied she can do a basic Stay but what about when things get a Little bit more exciting stay whoa look At you you’re doing a great job looking All that chicken okay so this is good What this tells me is that Luca has it In her to override her impulses so your Dog has to have that basic impulse Control before you can really teach them Boundaries but she’s doing fantastic if She were to break I’d simply escort her Back to the point where I asked her to Stay and try again maybe perhaps making A little bit easier for her on the Second attempt I’m really happy with how Well Luca is doing she’s staying she’s Staying well I dropped the treats but Will she stay when I throw treats into The kitchen and I’m over there see dogs

Are really smart and they can tell that If you’re really far away from the treat That they’ve got a chance at beating you To it so I want to make sure she’s Really tight on that before I go on with My next step here hey Luca look at me Good job okay ready Stay I’m gonna go over here and again This is just to make sure that you’ll Stay when I give her my full attention And throw a treat into the kitchen what Doll you are you’re doing so well so our Goal over the next few weeks is to make Sure that Luca doesn’t have access to This kitchen at all unless we give her Permission to go in let’s simulate some Real-world kitchen activity I want to Make sure that she knows that there’s Some awesome food on the counter right Here so I’m gonna let her sniff this Leave it alone a good girl that is Really good she’s really on a good Behavior right now stay so I’m gonna go Over here it’s much more difficult when Your dog is farther away from you in Other words they understand hey there’s An opportunity there and I want to make Sure that I’m there to show her the Right way to behave if she thinks about Jumping up on that counter and stealing That food or even coming in the kitchen I’m gonna throw some chicken in front of Her now Good job good job nice correction there

So you know I had to interrupt her I Thought she was gonna stay so I was a Little overconfident there but she did a Great job in correcting herself I’m Gonna throw some chicken again stay That’s really good she’s looking right At me I love that but I’m gonna see if I Can push it a little bit more and get a Little bit more success to keep her Guessing a little bit I’m gonna turn my Back on her and I hope she’s not going For anything and she’s not so that’s Good what happens if I get this played Out over here Maybe grab one of these cupcakes if your Dog gets used to seeing you do normal Things and you’re in a position to also Enforce the rules then they’re going to Learn a lot quicker it’s open the fridge Again some chocolate soy milk and I’ll Put that out now I’ll put it back in cuz I don’t want any chocolate soy milk she Is just knocking it out of the park Right now she’s doing great You should make every trip to the Kitchen a training session for your dog If you’re really serious about teaching This since you’ll want to sporadically Reward when you’re cooking dinner for Example it’s a good idea to have some Dog treats that keep well at room Temperature available see Luca is eager To grab any food that’s been left out at The moment the humans are out of the

Room so I’m going to try and do my best To make sure that doesn’t happen right Now but this one’s a little bit tricky Make sure that everything we’ve covered So far is really solid before moving on To your next step which is out of sight Boundary training before you just trust Your dog to stay while you leave the Room you really want to prepare them for This that means starting small now I Happen to have a little bit of an Advantage here I’m gonna be using this Monitor to keep an eye on her it just Gives you a little bit more information But if you start small enough you Shouldn’t even need to do this I’m gonna Go walk out that door and tell her to Stay stay Oh goodness what are you doing what did You gosh you can’t eat a whole sandwich Okay so that was kind of a disaster I Kind of pushed a little bit too long Steak what are you doing you broke you Stay I saw you you tried to cheat get Over here Sit stay this time I don’t want her to Go and investigate that food so I’m Gonna try and interrupt her before she Does it stay one two three yes your dog Has to get really good about a three Second stay before you can expect them To do a five or 10 second out of sight Stay good job see I want to reward for Those tiny bits of progress right now

There’s short periods of time before she Has a chance to slip up see if we get Five seconds now Five four three two four yes good girl See I want to take advantage of these Times when she is succeeding no matter How short a period of time that is stay I’m trying to stay out of sight here but I don’t want to push her too long she’s Doing really well good girl very good You did awesome Hey I’m outside now closing the door Look at her holding that stay she’s Doing so well I’m going to kind of sneak Around the corner here Good work she thought about breaking Right there you’re doing a good job Boundary training is the sort of thing That you really have to work on for Weeks at a time and your spare time and Just in real-world scenarios so that Your dog starts to generalize the Behavior as a whole so be patient with This and don’t expect rapid results once You’re able to have many real-world Training rehearsals like this where your Dog is demonstrated that they’re Reliable for several minutes at a time Of not going into the kitchen and Stealing food for several weeks in a row Then your dog has probably gotten the Point and you can begin to let your Guard down now if your dog does start to Slip up immediately take a step back on
