teach your dog not to walk of the door even
if the door is propped open and people are calling
him out of the house. if there's someone standing
in your yard with a dog and they're calling
your dog, teach him not to go out of the door.
when i taught my dog not to leave the house
i use to prop the door open. when my dog started
to walk out of the door i would bring him back in
or not let him walk out of the door and say "no". i did
it all of the time. i propped open the door as my dog neared the door
would say "no". sometimes i would run my hand along the ceil
of the door and pat it and say "no". i wanted to give him an idea
of what i'm saying no for. once my dog got the idea
i had my neighbors call him while the door was propped open.
once he got that i had my neighbors
and friends come over with their dogs and call him. once he didn't leave the house with people calling him with their dogs while standing
in the yard i had them walk up the steps with their dogs and let
the dogs get nose to nose. theni would have them walk down the steps
and call my dog. once he didn't leave the house after that i knew he had it. i still test him from time to time to make sure he doesn't leave the house. i also taught him if he's ever left outside alone ( not in the yard) to lay down on our steps. i taught him this just in case i forget
to bring him in or i come into the house for something and i leave
on our steps.
Yeah you guys are right, I'll just to have to tell everyone to wait before they walk in and keep stressing to not pay attention to him. I do have him under control where he doesn't try to fly out the door when someone is leaving, I make him do the sit stay. I'll just have to grab my leash and yell at everyone else not to come in or let me know ahead of time!
