Proof your commands in new environments. Your dog may be so used to performing commands in the comfort of home but fall apart while in a new environment. This is super normal for dogs. You just have to remember that with new distractions and environments, take a few steps back and teach your dog that the same rules and commands apply there. Use a long line till you know your dog will still recall back to you. It also helps for directing dogs into a sit or a down if they are struggling. Give them some help adjusting to the new environments but dont keep them in that grace period for too long. You want your dog thinking so make sure to challenge them as well. This will help create a dog who can become more comfortable in different environments.
hi, my name's Cinder and my mom has to bribe me with @swellgelatofordogs to stay still for 5 minutes while she brushes me. #sassypants#boopmynose #idontshediemitmagicalfibersofjoy . . Cinder has been bathed with soap maybe 3 times in her entire life. She has to get into something nasty to smell. Mud just falls off her. She literally has the most majestic fur. Downside? She needs to be furminated constantly. I average about once a week right now but it should be more like every 3 days 😫 she never stops shedding, I swear.
