Default To do inside with dogs outside house (teach my dog to)

I cannot be exposed to much sun for a week or two. My dermatologists took out the stitches as well as used a laser for my keiloid on face from acne. Dogs cannot lick my face at all in order for proper healing for both wounds and keloid. So got to stay away from dogs for a week or two also. Don't want to take a chance for improper healing. Perhaps I can spend time with dogs that are not kissers inside or be extra careful. Luckily, my Labradoodle is not a big kisser. Could train him while this is going on too. Train him once a week. Need to do it more frequently. I signed up for introduction scenting work early March! Will get so many more dogs to walk. Nah don't want to jynx being careless. The other thing is being outside when sun goes down like evening.

Did you say you only train your dog once a week? Do you spend more time posting than training?

I bet I could find 50 things to use as a reward in your house. My already trained dogs get worked 3 times a day, every day.

It seems you like the idea of being a trainer far more than the reality of it.

Yeah... "he destroyed his ball" is the lamest excuse for not training that I've heard in a while.

Lobo, if you're so interested in training dogs, why are you not working with your own dog every day? When I was a kid, I was obsessed with training, grooming and playing with the family dog. I wanted a GSD but she was a little Terrier mix of some kind, so I simply pretended she was a GSD. I taught her many tricks and had a lot of fun doing it.

PEOPLE, either post to help, or do not post at all...


Since 'a' ball is just one way to reward. This is a good opportunity for you to start training like most of us do. With reward based food marker training. Clearly much easier with a clicker but we humans tend too be to lazy to learn to use it (much easier to expect all the training to be on the dogs part I guess ).

So with that said I'd just review this ---> Teaching a trick is the least important part of teaching tricks and Intro to Clicker Training (perfect for puppies!) and you should have a great week!

You could also play hide and seek with yourself and with items he likes. When it's all rainy and nasty outside I like to play hide and seek with my dog. I wait until I can sneak out of the room (very difficult) and go and hide and just wait for her to find me. Then it all happiness and play time. You can also introduce clicker training for tricks and obedience. You can also play the games like which hand is the treat in, find the hidden toy (you can use a kong with something tasty in it), You can practice the place command. Shake hands and high five is easy to teach, as well as touch my hand with your nose. Use your imagination and imagine you are stuck inside during a hurricane and need to keep your dog occupied. Actually that is the reason I used some of these - we have a lot of hurricanes go by. Good luck on your recovery and keeping the furry ones occupied.

Indoor training has it's merit...work 'em wherever the opportunity exits.
