I have a 10 month old who is calm most of the time except training. Once I ask him to sit or lay down its over he become super excited. He does what I say put it at a very high energy. If i happen to be using treats he **** near bites off my hand when i reward him. Treats dont even have to be present for him to go after my hands thinking theres treats. How do i get him to calm down?
We've learned in class to put the treat in your hand, make a fist, and tell the dog to wait for it, once they back off and stop nosing your hand(because they smell the treat), open your hand and say take it--they do not get the treat until they back off. Pretty much like the video and it does work!! I have used this with all my dogs and they are gentle enough to take a treat from your mouth(even the puppy that is now 6 months old)
