Default **Selzer** Sitting On The Dog

Being the other thread is now closed, and I read your reply. I will have to continue here.

"Sitting on the dog" I found on this site. I couldn't find the thread but it also contained a video. The thread it was in was not specific to this topic.

Basically have a chair, have the dog on a leash or lead. Sit on the lead in the chair and let the dog have about a foot of lead. You ignore the dog like they are not there. The video said to start with a minimum of 30 minutes. You do this daily. The dog, if they are hyperactive or just won't settle down when you want to relax, this is suppose to give them the idea that when you sit down, it's relax or rest time.

It may sound kind of crazy, but it seems to work.
