Code Zack 20 when you check out and you Will get 20% off of your first order now Let’s go say hello to Arden Kathryn and Their dog Sadie Ardan Catherine I’ve had the honor of Working with you guys with Sadie a few Times and I gotta say you’ve done an Incredible job with her you guys are Really in tune congratulations on your New baby thank you How much longer until you’re due we Really could be any day now any time Between the now in the next two weeks This is great I love this here and this Is actually quite smart this is a baby Have you really taken this seriously we Certainly have we we would cradle the Baby like it was our own we’d walk Around the house we even downloaded a Little phone app that makes a bunch of Random crying noises while holding a Baby and using the crying app here it Can really help a lot to initially Prepare them but having an actual human Being in your arms that has smells that Has unpredictable behavior lots of Different frequencies when they’re Crying and making sounds that that’s Still a completely different level You’ve also made an effort to bring her Around lots of kids we have one of my Great friends brought his six-month-old Over a couple of months ago and said he Did great the trials that we’ve had have

Been rather perfect circumstances and There’s always that unexpected you know Something falls on the floor or Something runs out in front of Sadie and Distracts her so those are the things That we really need to prepare we don’t Want to underestimate how much changing A huge variable like bringing another Person into the house can throw a dog Off it’s very important to have very Tight fluid communication with your dog For you guys at home you’ll want to make Sure that you’ve taught your dog all the Basics now I’ll have a link that’ll show You how to teach your dog all the basics In order so that you can get prepared That should take anywhere between 6 and 12 weeks depending on a variety of Factors and where you are with your dog So there’s plenty of time for most People to prepare for this how is she With jumping on you because obviously That’s a pretty big deal breaker if You’re holding a baby you can’t have Your dog jumping on sure she does pretty Well with not getting overly anxious and Excited when people come in if your son Caden is sleeping you obviously don’t Want her barking waking him up a lot So it’s importantly you have general Barking under control but I’ll have Videos on jumping and barking also in The description you want to break this Down into two major phases by-and-large

For most dogs you’re the first phase Which we’re going to focus on today is Teaching your dog how to just chill out And relax so that you can tend your Baby and do whatever you need to at will Without interference from your dog the Second phase is then introducing your Dog to your baby There should be no urgency to have them Interact immediately Sadie’s energy Level is moderate so exercise before Training isn’t required here but if your Dog is a high-energy dog you’ll need to Exercise them sufficiently before Teaching this fetch is generally the Most efficient way to do this see the Description if you need to know how to Teach or improve your dog’s fetch Ability let’s see where sadie is on stay While unexpectedly distracted that way We can see where we need to start what I’d like to see initially here is kind Of how Sadie reacts if we really sell Her at least try and sell her on the Fact that this is a real baby You’re just being a distracting dad you Got okay and if you drop some of this Let’s see how she does as you’re walking Around with the baby she’s really Interested in you because there’s a lot Of action going on over here down really Good down stay so she’s got that but With the distraction she gets up a Little it’s like a lot of dogs she’s

Like whoa okay this is a little bit Harder especially if you can throw Chicken on the ground and make sounds With the toy that’s interesting to her So we have to show her that she still Needs to stay no matter how much she Wants to get up and investigate you’re Teaching your dog something like this It’s best to phase things in slowly you Want to take baby steps so to speak you Don’t want to just wait for your new Baby to come and hope everything goes All right I think we should work with Him for a few more minutes on this have Her relax into a down stay and chill on The couch right here while she does that That’s what we want to be able to do Okay what I’d like to do next is to have You just walk around with only the baby For a second while she holds it down Stay and make sure we’ve got that solid And then we’ll change another variable On her this is awesome she’s holding it Down stay while he holds a baby doll our Next step is to do the same thing Holding the baby and rattling the toy Maybe even dropping the toy so now we’re Doing two things walking around with the Baby making a sound with the toy Expecting her to hold her down stay stay You can see what she’s got look right There that’s X oh nice job get her eyes On you when you drop it next time Okay so she’s looking at that now I want

To look at you for guidance very good Why don’t you try and make Sounds maybe even whistle a little bit To see how she does stayed a good motto Stay stay stay very good so I think We’re making a lot of progress right now She’s staying when you hold the baby She’s staying when you rattled the toy She’s staying when you whistle which She’s normally thrown off by here now Comes the real test will she stay as you Do all of that while you also dropped Chicken leave it good good good girl Good maybe whistle and tell her to stay You see this this is great that’s Progress celebrate progress we’re not Going to accomplish things when teaching Dogs in one big step you have to really Break them down that’s what you’re Seeing here Sadie was trying but she was Having a hard time grasping that she Should stay while Arden sat on the couch When we teach our dogs we need to make It a priority to anticipate how they’re Likely to act in this case we have Sadie Breaking stay and around the same point In the exercise since she is predictably Breaking stay there you’ll want to come Up and reward her so in other words You’ll sit down and then get right back Up and reward her you know what I mean Don’t stall out too long when your dog Is repeatedly making the same mistake You need to work through this by taking

A step back on your training to help Your dog understand a bit more clearly Stay there Leave it good sit down slowly tell her To stay again if you stay there good Stay there now whistle briefly vittor to Stay see how we’re going in slow motion Really not trying to throw her in the Deep and really overwhelm her good from The turkey be very clear about leave it Leave it Say now look at me With me that’s what I’m talking about You see that this is an exercise you’ve Got to practice a lot over a good few Weeks The next step is when you see her Naturally relaxing in day to day life Where she’s just hanging out while You’re doing whatever you want to start To teach her how to do that when you ask Her to do it that’s called a settle a Settle is basically a down stay where a Dog relaxes indefinitely so it’s Different from a down stay because when You ask your dog to lie down and stay it Means lie down stay and wait for the Next thing settled means lie down and Relax and when I get to you I’ll get to You this is what a settle looks like so You would come up to and you would say Settle relax you’re not rewarding with Food you rather just kind of Communicating to her I like the calm

Behavior this is what we dog trainers Call capturing a behavior when she does This naturally you’ll want to let her Know how much you like the calm behavior Over several weeks of doing this you’ll Be able to eventually say hey Sadie Settle the tricky thing about teaching a Settle is that you’re not rewarding the Position they’re in but rather they’re Relaxed state of mind are nothing you’re Doing totally awesome with Sadie she’s a Remarkable dog and I think she’s gonna Be totally fine just be really Consistent with her I’m so excited for You guys the biggest thing that I want You to get from a video like this is That you don’t take a wait-and-see Attitude when there’s a major change in Your life like having a baby take the Time to prepare your dog in order to Ensure success the dog training Revolution is in part funded by you guys If you want to help out and make a small Monthly contribution to our crowdfunding Campaign I’ll have a link in the Description patreon.com slash is act Georgian i want to thank each and every One of our patrons on patreon you guys Make all the difference click thumbs up To let me know that you enjoyed today’s Video also make sure you’re subscribed If you’re new if you don’t like me on Facebook already I’ll have a link in the Description go do that right now and
