I've found seatbelt harnesses work great for teaching dogs to wait until released to exit a vehicle - Trying it with the seatbelt harness = dog doesn't go anywhere except uncomfortable. They learn real fast!
Yeah 99.9 percent of the time both my girls will not come out until command but it just so happen when I open the door her toy fell out of the car thus why she launched out!
Update: she put weight on it and is walking instead of me carrying her now! Lot more energy as well and a first FULL night of sleep for me! Keep in mind this just happen Saturday!!! Doc said cage rest for 4-5 weeks...only let her out when she needs "to go" but she's doing great!
And boy is she milking the injury she's getting so much attention and my 11 year old is really starting to get pissed haha
glad is going to be ok. teach her not to door dash (car, house).
teach her not to gate dash. teach her exit on command only.
follow the commands with distractions (a toy falling out of the
car, a leash, a bone, etc).
Love the pics and so glad she is recuperating well!
and...what doggiedad said. After the dog knows sit/down and such the next step is to proof with all kinds of distractions. My trainer proofs sit, down by throwing toys right in front of the dogs and they learn to not move until released. Proofing is so important!
