Dog training – 7 steps to achieve your goals

Have you ever wondered why there are dogs that learn super-fast, seem to make steady progress in training, and never seem to make problems for their owners? While other dog owners seem to have completely lost control of their dog and slip from one problem to the next?

The reason for these two types of human-dog teams is not only the previous history of the dog, which may have come from a bad home or lived on the street. The dog owner’s experience doesn’t always play a role either. The most common reason that dog owners slip into a downward spiral with their dogs quite easily is that they don’t know how to do anything about the situation.

Perhaps you have also attended a dog school or taken a one-on-one lesson with a good dog trainer. You also made small progress in the first few weeks, but then fell back into old patterns and behaviors. Don’t worry, you’re like most dog owners! Without a long-term plan, 99.9% of dog owners completely stop training with their dog because they don’t think the training is on target.

I know it can be super frustrating when you don’t reach your goals even though you seem to have given it your all, so today I want to show you a system that ALWAYS works in dog training, as well as in life.

Step out of the downward spiral with 7 steps:

Step 1 – Define your exact goal

Step 2 – Find out your status quo

Step 3 – Plan the route to your goal

Step 4 – Set milestones

Step 5 – Get started!

Step 6 – Review and adjust your route

Step 7 – Keep going

Most dog owners now wonder why there are so many human-dog teams that have problems when it is supposed to be so easy. The important thing is to understand exactly what each step means and then follow through. Realize that there is NO shortcut on this path.

Step 1 – Define your exact goal.

You need to know exactly where you want to go to achieve your goal.

Let’s say you want to go on vacation to Austria and you plan to drive there, how do you go about it? You probably don’t just type Austria into the navigation system and drive off, do you? You rather look for a hotel or a vacation apartment, plan what you want to experience there, and have a pretty exact picture in mind of how the vacation should be. Then you enter the exact address into your navigation system and drive to your destination.

It is not enough to simply type Austria into the navigation system to reach your vacation destination. Just as it is not enough to say:

“I want my dog not to pull on the leash “¬†or *”I want my dog to listen to me better”.

These are not training goals!

You must have your goal crystal clear before you plan training with your dog. Otherwise, even the best training concept will not help you

Step 2 – Figure out your status quo

If you know where you want to go, you also have to find out where you are starting from. Also, your sat nav calculates for the route, from your current location to the destination. This is exactly what you need to do in dog training.

Determine your status quo with your dog.

This includes, for example, behavioral problems, that your dog shows and management measures, how you have dealt with them so far. You should also test how good your dog’s basic training is and how strong your human-dog bond is.

Then write down your status quo on each area and start planning your route.

Step 3 – Plan the route to your destination

Now the time has finally come. You know exactly what you want to accomplish with your dog and where you are right now. Now there are several ways to plan the route to your common goal.

  1. create a plan for yourself and just try it out.
  2. find a role model or coach who is already where you want to be.

When you design a plan for yourself, you need to be very structured and, most importantly, reflective in your approach to training. Especially as a new dog owner with no previous experience, this road is often rocky and marked by many detours. Nevertheless, you will learn a lot on this path and therefore I have listed it here.

The second way, on the other hand, is usually easier, as long as you choose your role model or trainer wisely. Follow proven methods instead of reinventing the wheel.

In our app, you’ll find over 200 videos that give you expert guidance. If our videos don’t help you with your problem, you can contact our certified dog trainers via the chat feature and we’ll help you plan your route.

Step 4 – Set milestones

To keep your motivation and your dog’s motivation high during your journey to your destination, you should come up with stage goals. In dog training, I recommend you set small weekly goals and slightly larger monthly goals.

Example:

If my end goal is for my dog to walk attentively beside me on a loose leash, then my stage goals might look like this:

Weekly Goal 1: The goal is for the first step out of the front door to be on a loose leash with my dog looking at me.

Monthly Goal: The goal is for my dog to walk the 200 yards to our house on a loose leash. If the leash tightens, he should regulate his own pace until the leash is loose again.

To check your stage goal, you should set aside one “check day” per week and one per month. This way you can check if you are ready for the next step or if you still need to work further on your stage goal.

Step 5 – Finally start

In dog training, as in life, there is never the one right moment to finally get started. We humans can usually think of 1000 excuses why it’s not the right time yet, or we’re waiting for that one new leash or clicker we’re still missing to finally get started. The fact is, to train with your dog, you hardly need anything except a leash and a collar, so grab your pelt nose and get started!

Step 6 – Review and adjust your route

After you’ve been training for about 2 weeks, you should check how far you’ve come towards your goal and where there are still difficulties. If you don’t make any progress at all with one method, it’s not a big deal to choose another approach instead and continue with that.

For all Pupy Pro users, there is the possibility to get support from certified dog trainers in our chat. So if you get stuck at any point in the training, we will help you find a solution and an alternative training approach if necessary.

Step 7 – Keep going

Dogs learn best in those moments when they are not doing what we would like them to do.

Everyone knows the situation where training is going great for a few weeks and suddenly day XY comes and he acts like he doesn’t know a single command anymore. Most dog owners hate such days and feel almost betrayed by their dogs.

Meanwhile, I have to confess that I love such “character days”! The reason is that days when my dog doesn’t want to listen, are the days when I can show my dog that our agreed-upon rules still apply. Once my dog understands that he learns more on that “character day” than in all the training sessions we’ve had together.

The important thing is that we take advantage of days like this and stay consistent instead of making a “one-time exception”. Exceptions ALWAYS set us back in training because your dog has succeeded with undesirable behavior and we also confirm it quite unconsciously through our “exception”.

So my tip is to wait for those “character days” and welcome them warmly. Because if you are aware that these days bring the greatest learning success, then it is the easiest to do without “exceptions”, even if it is exhausting!

When is the best time to start dog training?

Did you just give a dog a new home and are now asking yourself when is the best time to start dog training? At Pupy, we want to help you prepare your little friend in the best possible way for his new life by your side, so you can experience all the wonderful moments untroubled as a human-dog team.

One of the first questions new dog owners ask is: When do I start dog training?

You must realize that training and raising your dog are two different things.

Raising your dog

Raising your dog is about getting him used to the world by your side, teaching him the most important rules for living together, discovering his environment, and learning how to interact with other members of his species. In the phase of raising your dog, the most important thing is to build a quality relationship and bond with your dog and lay the foundation for your human-dog team.

Training your dog

Dog training is about teaching your dog certain behaviors through commands and other signals. Training together strengthens your bond and provides physical and mental activity for you and your dog. There are many different methods and approaches. You must find the training approach for you and your dog that you both enjoy.

When is the best time to start raising my dog and when to start training?

This depends a bit on whether you have just adopted a puppy or a little older dog, e.g. from a shelter.

Puppies and young dogs

With your puppy you can already begin on the first day playfully with the first small education lessons e.g. in which you discover together the house and the garden, play together and your small friend may learn thereby, with which intensity he may play with you. Also the housetraining starts from day 1, when you go out with your little one in regular intervals (every 1,5 – 2 hours) to the garden. After 2-3 days of this acclimation period, you can begin contact with other dogs in a puppy group or with friendly neighbor dogs. Again, your dog must learn how to behave towards other dogs. If the play gets too wild, break it up and take your puppy to you. If, on the other hand, your puppy is looking for protection, you offer it to him, thus paying into your relationship account right away. Over time, you can begin to incorporate small training lessons for everyday life. This includes sit and down but also small tricks that are fun for both of you and train your dog’s motor skills e.g. the trick twist.

Animal shelter dog

With a dog from the shelter or animal protection, you start a little differently. Here you should first clarify what history your dog brings with it. If you don’t know, it helps to watch him closely for the first few days. If you then notice that he is insecure in certain situations, you start exactly there with the training. During the first few days, build trust with your new dog by playing together, exploring the neighborhood, and establishing daily routines. Then guide your dog as a safe anchor in distress through situations in which he shows insecurity. You can learn exactly how to do this in our app under the category “Puppy Training.”

Tip

Every training and educational activity gives your dog structure and security. Growing together as a team starts from the first time you meet. Download the Pupy App now and lay the foundation for your strong human-dog team!

What should I do if my dog is fearful at the vet?

Visits to the vet are stressful for most dog owners and their dogs. Whether it’s the annual check-up or our pet is sick, we automatically suffer along with them. When our dog is not only in pain but also scared, it is hard for most dog owners to bear to see their own animal suffer so much. Most of the time we talk calmingly to our dog, try to pet him, and stand by him. Unfortunately, there is a certain point when fear turns into panic and our dog hardly notices our presence. Our dog’s whole body is busy trying to escape or fight the unpleasant situation. Most veterinarians then react with safety measures e.g. muzzle, collar, fixation by an assistant, or in the worst case, because the treatment does not allow it otherwise, light sedation.

All this does not have to be!

We at Pupy would like to allow you to prepare your dog as well as possible for his visit to the vet, to avoid anxiety, fear, stress, and its consequences. The following 3 tips are especially right for dogs who have already had a bad experience at the vet.

Train with “Medical Training” different treatment situations.

Write yourself a list of treatment situations your dog has already had to go through. Sort the items on your list by the increase in your dog’s stress level. Once you have all the items sorted, begin training a treatment situation in which your dog has shown minor signs of stress. As time goes on, continue with more difficult treatment situations until you have worked through the entire list

Warning:

If your dog reacts with aggressive behavior in stressful situations, or if you notice your dog threatening you during training, start with muzzle training first before training the other items on your list. This way your dog can wear the muzzle during the rest of the training and you and your dog can train together in a relaxed way.

Find a suitable veterinarian

Choosing a good veterinarian is very important, especially for fearful dogs. Vets should be able to recognize stress, anxiety, and fear and take countermeasures if necessary. Veterinarians with the “Fear Free” qualification are specially trained in helping any pet have a relaxed vet visit. Discuss with your veterinarian before treatment, preferably on the phone, what situations your dog is afraid of, so the practice team can adjust to your dog. Some veterinarians also offer a visit without a reason for treatment. Such appointments serve to give your dog positive experiences in the practice and he gets to know the practice team relaxed.

Train a relaxation signal

Relaxation signals can calm your dog in stressful situations and trigger a feeling of security. It is important to condition the signal beforehand in a relaxed situation. The relaxation signal can either be just a calming pat, or it can be associated with a word, melody, or scent. You can learn about conditioned relaxation in our app under the “Relaxation” category.

Avoid these 3 dog training mistakes

Many problems in dog training arise from small mistakes and inconsistencies. Often it is not because there is not enough training, but more because these mistakes are not communicated in the dog training. We at Pupy would like to introduce you to the top 3 mistakes in dog training and explain how you can avoid them in the future.

Mistake #1: Mistakes in communication.

Dogs are not humans, so we have to learn to understand and use their language. Unlike the talkative human, dogs communicate non-verbally, that is, through body language. The mistake many dog owners make is that while they give the correct verbal signal to their dog, their body language is the opposite. For example, we tell our dog to follow us, but we turn our body not in the direction we want to go, but in the direction our dog is pulling. Or we tell our dog not to jump on us when we greet him, but we reinforce it with body language by leaning down and petting him.

Tip: Learn your dog’s language before teaching him your own.

Mistake #2: Missing consistency

Changing the rules over and over again is something neither dog nor human understands. But especially in families or among couples it comes more often to so-called “exceptions” e.g. “Oh, it is Christmas. Today he is allowed to eat something from the table!”, “Today is Sunday, he is allowed to pull me to his favorite place” and so on. Unfortunately, dogs do not understand that these are “only” exceptions. Because if a certain behavior becomes a success in a certain situation, it will be shown again and sometimes even stronger in the same or similar situation. This means that even the day after Christmas, for example, your dog will stand begging next to the table and drooling on your new jeans or even during the week, pulling you to his favorite place. The difference is that you now want to correct or punish your dog for this behavior. However, this is unfair because your dog cannot understand “exceptions”. Such situations can unsettle your dog and he will constantly question your rules and test them. On the other hand, if you remain consistent and ALWAYS enforce your rules, your dog will see you as a reliable partner he can trust.

Mistake #3: Missing generalization.

“Yesterday the recall worked, why isn’t it working today?” – sound familiar to you? Maybe you have heard of the term “place learners”. These are dogs that listen to every word in the dog school, walk on the leash in an exemplary manner, can be recalled from any situation in the dog school and as soon as they leave the gate of the dog school, they don’t even react to their name. What is the reason for this? Dogs learn for the most part locally and situationally. This means that a newly learned behavior, such as recall, must be trained in many different environments and with many different distractions to be reliable. Your dog forms certain links in his brain as he learns, which you can think of as a road network. For your dog to respond to your signal in any situation, it is important to create as many connections as possible so that your dog can respond quickly and reliably. Only after this generalization has taken place is a behavior fully learned. However, it is important that even after generalization, this new behavior is trained at irregular intervals and also rewarded from time to time.

4 Tips for Dog Encounters

Meeting another dog on a walk is nothing unusual as a dog owner and should actually not be a problem if both human-dog teams abide by certain rules. Nevertheless, there are always situations that worry us, dog owners, when another human-dog team appears on the horizon. It doesn’t matter if it’s the fear that the other dog will attack our own or the uncertainty whether our own dog will behave. A negative feeling here can also be transferred to your dog. To prevent this, we have 4 tips for you that will help you to react more confidently and calmly in dog encounters in the future.

1. Respect leashed dogs.

The most important rule for all dog owners: If you meet a leashed dog or a dog you do not know, then you also leash your dog and keep a sufficient distance during the encounter. If the other dog is not on a leash but your dog is, ask the other dog owner to leash their dog. Always try to remain friendly and objective in such a situation, even if not every dog owner will understand why they should now leash their dog.

What you can do if the other dog owner does not want to put his dog on a leash

Take three deep breaths and remain calm and friendly. Ask the other dog owner again to leash their dog and give them a valid reason why it is safer for their dog to be leashed. For example, say that your dog has a contagious disease, they bite other dogs that get too close, they have a flea infestation or is currently in the standing heat and you want to save them from unplanned offspring. Really remember to stay friendly and always turn the situation around so that you are not protecting your own dog but the other person’s dog. This will save you a heated discussion and keep everyone focused on their own dog.

2. Keep your distance on the leash.

Who hasn’t heard the phrase: “He just wants to say hello”? Just a quick “hello” can lead to chaos, injuries, and biting, especially on the leash, and by the way, you put your dog in the expectation that as soon as another dog comes towards you, they may rush to the other dog. It is therefore advisable to keep a distance from the leash. This way your dog learns that they do not have to expect to be allowed to play with another dog on the leash and at the same time you are spared the unpopular knot in the leash with another dog.

What you can do if your dog tends to bark on the leash:

In dog encounters, take your dog to the side away from the other human-dog team. In this way, you create the necessary distance between you and the other human-dog team and at the same time give your own dog more space to avoid. In such a situation, you mustn’t pull your leash tight, but let it hang loosely. This way your dog will not feel constricted and will not associate a tight leash with meeting other dogs.

3. They do NOT settle this between themselves!

If both dogs get along with each other or if the dogs meet without a leash, you must always keep an eye on the dogs and their “game”. The sentence “They’ll settle it between themselves!” already fails because a 2 kg Chihuahua could hardly defend itself against the weight and mass of a Newfoundland. Apart from the size, a game can escalate quickly. At the latest when the game becomes too one-sided, one dog is always on the ground or is chased and moped by the other, it is time to end the “game”.

4. Give your dog protection when he needs it.

Whether your dog is running free or on a leash, if your dog is looking for protection near you or between your legs, you should give it to them. The easiest way to give your dog protection is to shield them from other dogs, but at the same time allow your dog to avoid them. Small dogs, in particular, like to be picked up, but it is better to shield them between the legs in a crouching position, so your dog still has the opportunity to move forwards or backward to escape the situation. The same applies to larger dogs: enable protection, but do not force protection. Your dog should be allowed to decide for themself how long they need the protection of their owner and when your dog dares to leave the “hiding place” again. By the way, it should go without saying that if the situation does not calm down, you should leave the situation with your dog and either change direction or go home immediately.

We hope these tips will help you and your dog on your next walk. If you want to know how to guide your dog safely and calmly through a dog encounter, download the Pupy app for free now and start training today.

5 tips for walking on a lax leash

Do you also dream of a relaxing walk with your dog? Walks are supposed to be relaxing for the dog and owner, but when the dog rushes through the front door with a tight leash, the relaxation is often gone. The good thing is that there is another way! We at Pupy have 5 tips for you to help you bring more relaxation and peace into your walk as soon as you leave the front door.

1. Leashing

This is usually where the first stress arises for the dog and owner. To prevent this from happening, you can combine every leashing, whether at home or out and about, with a ritual. Give your dog a familiar command, e.g. sit or down, before you put the collar and leash on. You can then reward your dog with a treat or verbal praise. The ritual must take place calmly. If your dog is generally restless before the walk, you can use a calming ritual or a conditioned relaxation signal.

2. the safe haven

Some dogs pull on the leash to avoid an uncomfortable or threatening situation. Pay attention to your dog’s body language and keep your dog on a leash during dog encounters, always on the side away from the other dog. You can also reassure your dog in scary situations by putting your dog between your legs or standing in front of them.

3. casual and training mode

It’s not easy for any dog owner to always stay in training mode and work on leash handling. That’s why it’s a good idea to introduce a ritual that signals to your dog that the dog is now allowed to pull a little, or that a little tension on the leash is okay. To do this, you can put a harness on your dog and switch from the collar to the harness. Harnesses are designed to allow a dog to pull something, e.g. a sled or other load. Of course, there are rules here too, because you shouldn’t let your dog pull you around either. The harness should only allow you to be a little more inconsistent when you don’t have time or don’t feel like training – it’s your casual mode!

4. mood and posture

The leash is a positive thing and you should treat it as such. Dogs can perceive and mirror our emotional world through mood transmission. Therefore, it is extremely important to remain relaxed and calm when walking our dog. If you pull on the leash during a dog encounter, your dog may take this as a sign to start moving forward.

5. patience

Dogs are not born to walk beside their humans. Especially in the first year of life, there are so many new things for our dogs to discover. Therefore, any obedience training requires your patience. It is not about reaching the goal as quickly as possible, but about building a harmonious relationship with your dog in the long term. So practice patience and don’t be disappointed if things slow down during training. Sometimes it helps to take a short break so that you can relax and continue with the training again!

You can use our Pupy app to remind you of your training sessions. Daily tips and other expert articles will help you and your dog achieve your goals in the long run. Download the Pupy App today and start your first training session right now!

The 3 Best Tools in Dog Training

Who does not dream of a dog that trots attentively beside you without a leash. You don’t need a leash, no collar and everything seems free, carefree and harmonious between you.

That’s all well and good, but what happens if this dog, no matter how obedient, is suddenly startled by a loud noise? This dog runs across the street, a car hits him and he is badly injured? What if his owner and the veterinarians want to help him, but nobody can touch him because this dog suddenly snaps out of pain, even though he never did before? What if he gets a muzzle, but it stresses him so much that his body, already weakened by the accident, becomes even weaker?

At this moment the owner asks himself why he did not train his dog with any tools.

With which top 3 tools would this accident not have happened?

Tool no. 1 – The leash

The dog leash secures your dog!! The dog leash is not a compulsory measure! The dog leash is also not only for disobedient dogs! The dog leash secures your dog! A responsible dog owner leashes his dog at busy streets, at the breeding and setting time and as soon as other passers-by, children or leashed dogs approach. Why? Because it is safer for everyone! That is why keeping your dog on a leash is much more important than walking freely. Because only with a leash you can prevent your dog 100% from running into a dangerous situation uncontrolled.

Tool No.2 – The muzzle

Even dogs that are not allowed to bite learn to wear a muzzle without stress. Why? Because there can always be situations in life where your dog suddenly needs a muzzle. Whether at the vet, in public transport or because a muzzle is mandatory in your next vacation domicile. If you train the muzzle well and positively with your dog, it will not disturb your dog. This way you prevent stressful situations in which your dog might have to wear a muzzle.

Tool no. 3 – The Longline

Regardless of our story at the beginning, such an accident could have happened even if your dog is in free run and he has not yet mastered the reliable recall. But so that your dog is allowed to run and play freely at the beginning of his life and you can practice the reliable recall in a protected way, the longline is a great tool. It can be between 5 and 10 meters long and thus increases the radius of your dog.

You can learn how to use and train the tools correctly in our Pupy App. Download the app and benefit from the top 3 tools when training with your dog!

5 best tools to keep your dog busy at home

There are many different ways to keep your dog busy at home. We will tell you why it makes sense to keep your dog busy at home and how you will have a lot of fun while training and playing together.

What are the benefits of keeping your dog busy at home?

Dogs are social creatures and love to spend time together with their families. This includes dog walks, playing and training together at home. In order to improve your dog’s physical and mental condition, you should keep them busy at home. Activities such as brain games, nose work or small exercises from basic training strengthen the bond between you and your dog and improve their comprehension. Regular exercises or tricks can also improve your dog’s mobility and fitness and ensure a sustainable improvement in their health. We show you how you can keep your dog busy at home!

Preparation

So that the time together is fun for you and your dog, make sure that you do not overstrain your dog and also yourself. Several small exercise units of about 5 minutes a day are better than one long unit. Always remain friendly to your dog and always stop when it is at its most enjoyable. This way, your dog’s motivation and your own remains at its highest and you will be looking forward to the next time you spend time together.

1. playing together

Dogs love to play with other dogs and their owner! You can play with your dog either with a toy, such as a rope toy, or you can play with your dog on a physical basis. When playing tug-of-war, make sure that your dog sometimes is allowed to win and get the rope. This is the only way your dog will enjoy the game. For physical play, we can use different game signals, e.g. real smile, creeping up in a low position or approaching and running away to challenge your dog to play. Make sure that the game really remains a game. If your dog becomes too wild, you stop the game. Immediately afterwards, however, you give your dog a chance to make up for it by asking them to play again, and this time end it before it gets too wild.

2. Nosework

The dog nose is a true high performance organ! No question that nosework is probably one of the best opportunities to keep your furry friend busy! There are several ways to challenge your dog’s nose. For example, hide a few treats in your apartment and let your dog search for them. If this is already too boring for your dog, you can also hide toys or other items. Even searching and retrieving a dummy is a great way to encourage your little friend’s nose and obedience.

3. Intelligence games

Meanwhile you can find various intelligence games for dogs in every pet supply store. Most of them are designed in such a way that you hide food in different hiding places, like drawers or under small hats, which your dog should then open. At the beginning it is recommended to choose a light variant of these games, where your dog only has to move a lever, drawer or hat to get the reward. If your dog is more trained, you can use more difficult games where your dog may have to press a button with the paw before your dog can open the drawer with the nose.

4. Tricks

Trickdogging is becoming more and more popular among dog owners and this for good reason. The advantage of dog tricks is that you hardly need any tools or extra space. Therefore, they are perfect for the training at home. In addition, they promote your dog’s mobility and strengthen your bond through shared experiences of success. If you are a trick beginner, it is best to start with a few simple tricks that your dog already shows in everyday life, e.g. lying on their side, turning in circles or laying their head down. Then you can slowly improve your skills.

5. Basic obedience

Also basics obedience should be trained from time to time. The great thing is that you can easily build them into your everyday life. For example, let your dog sit for a while before eating and wait until you give them food. Practice reliable drop it with your dog while you playing a rope game together. Prepare your dog for the next visit to the vet with the help of Medical Training and make sure your furry friend has less anxiety and stress.

Innovative and smart dog training with Pupy

Pupy is the vision of innovative and smart dog training that improves the relationship between humans and dogs. Out of love for dogs and the passion for behavioral research, the idea was born to develop an app that makes dog training possible for every dog owner according to the latest scientific research.

Due to many years of experience as a professional dog trainer and dog owner Sarah Mertes knows exactly how difficult it is for dog owners to train their dog outside of a dog training area or to keep them busy and entertained otherwise. Insufficient challenge, overweight, abnormal behaviour or disobedience are the result. The problem: Classical dog training at the dog school for many people has become impractical or no longer realizable . Many dog owners would like to have the possibility to train their dog from home, so that they can combine family, everyday life, job and also spending time with their dog.

Sarah and her team asked themselves the question, how they could make the knowledge from a classic dog school mobile without loosing quality. Soon they came up with the idea to create a digital product, something like an online course. But how could an online course on the computer be taken along on a

daily walk? No, it had to be something smaller, a dog trainer for your pocket, an app!

The Pupy App was born!

From Sarah’s passion as a dog trainer, her team of developers and designers and the consultation with biologists and veterinarians the app was born. This makes the combination of professional dog training, ideas to keep your dog busy and access to profound knowledge about dogs possible.
