It can help to use this technique if your dog becomes fixated on something
and develops a bad habit - i.e. starts barking or whining when telephone
rings or vacuum cleaner starts.
- Simply put a few pebbles/marbles in a small tin and keep handy.
- Shake the tin when your dog is engrossed in something.
- Reward and praise when dog responds.
CLICKER Training can also be used here.
A basic, but clear, booklet can be bought with the clicker.
