brittanyb28 What do you do when everyone is outside and your kids want to run. When one of my kids start running the dog runs after them but tackles them. I don't care that he wants to run with them but how do I stop the tackle.

Midnight12 I have also found it helpful for the kids to do some training with my help of course. Treats and commands to sit, down, stay. Seems to change the way the dog views them

halo2013 I just found i couldn't train her without the kids knowing their boundaries with playing. We've had no problems since then

Need help with this because my kids can't interact with him so I have keep them separated which is not fair for neither of them.

I have 2 5 yr olds and a 2 year old. Halo loves kids. Like when she sees a kid her whole life lights up. When we have the 3 of the kids here I find its usually always then kids that start romping around with her. Then she naturally thinks its play time. So when I trained her I had all 3 of them there and taught her acceptable.behavior with all of them. Showed the kids and her a perfect balance where she wasn't to hard and they all could play.

It's hard to say without seeing everything in action, but it's likely that there's something different middle is doing that is keying him up more, probably something really minor. You're probably just going to need to keep working through is, as you'll often have an 'extinction burst' when working on bad habits.

OriginalWacky It sounds to me like you are doing a great job, and should keep going like you are. If you're making this kind of progress, it should continue to get better, especially as he figures out how to get more and more rewards for proper behavior. Eventually you'll be able to move to a variable reward system, and phase out the treats, but it's a good idea to do some refreshers every so often just to keep it interesting.

Between that and making sure he's getting plenty of exercise, it sounds like you are on the way to having a best friend for your kids.

That's good progress. This process takes time. Keep at it, take small steps at a time and don't let your guard down. Every time he has a chance to jump onto the kids it gets ingrained deeper.
