A professional dog trainer favorite!
get your dog out of his crate and with you while
still under control as he learns how to behave!
(NOTE: Tethering should never
be used as punishment.)
WHAT: A dog
tether is a training tool for safety and management
in the home. When tethering is used with
positive reinforcement, it can be very effective
in the success of your dog training program.
HOW: Use tethering
as part of the Magnet Game, as taught by Paul
Owens in THE DOG WHISPERER™ dog training
DVDs and books.
Paul demonstrate various scenarios
While your dog is tethered, reward
him whenever you notice him doing a behavior
you desire, such as sit, down, go to your spot,
etc. Use of a tether in this way helps
to set your dog up for success so you
are able to constantly reward him for behaviors
you want. The more you reward him when he's
doing a behavior you want, the more he'll decide
that doing that behavior is a good idea!
Your dog will never chew through a tether again!
This dog tether is made of 3/32 inch, plastic-coated
wound steel cable. Available in 2 lengths,
it can be attached to a baseboard or to furniture.
You can also hook the dog tether to the doorknob
on the other side of the door; then drop the
leash to the floor, slip it under the door and
close the door.
For safety: Never
leave a tethered dog unsupervised.
