With stubborn breeds, there’s always an uncertainty whether or not they’ll latch onto certain types of training. A larger breed may struggle with being too rough during play while a smaller dog might not enjoy meeting new people or going to new places. As an owner, there are certain responsibilities to keep in mind when it comes to training for the benefit of your dog’s safety. This especially includes things like keeping him from running away.
One of the notoriously stubborn breeds is the Shiba Inu. These dogs have gone viral in the last few years, popularized by internet videos and pictures and prompting plenty of people to try to bring one home for themselves. However, the Shiba Inu is hard headed and has the reputation of a rebel. This can become dangerous when you’re struggling to keep your headstrong Shiba from bolting out the door and into the street at every opportunity. In order to keep your dog safe, it’s important to establish boundaries early on.
Shiba Inus have a tendency to be motivated by only the things that interest them, which can make training with the wrong motivators a nightmare. If your Shiba doesn’t like what you have to say or what you have to offer him, he will likely turn and find something else to do, but the benefit is, you can easily tell when he is interested in something. The trick is just to find exactly what motivates your dog.
Training a Shiba to stay put when the door is open or on the off chance he escapes is important for a number of safety reasons. It can prevent him from getting hurt by another person or animal and it can keep him away from the dangers of traffic. Every dog should begin this training as early as possible and you should be prepared to dedicate anywhere between three to six months to repetition and training.
The most important thing you’ll need when it comes to training your Shiba is an appropriate motivator. Some dogs may be motivated by food while others will be motivated by toys. This can also be another object that your dog may enjoy such as a favorite pillow or piece of clothing. Find out what your dog obsesses over and focus on using this as a reward.
Other objects that may come in handy are indoor gates, secure outdoor fencing, a crate, and a leash. Depending on what works best for your situation, consider trying out a mixture of items for added security.
How to we train her to sit ,stand ,not to get out
Hello Nour, To teach Bella to Sit follow one of the methods from the article that I have linked right below. https://wagwalking.com/training/train-a-german-shepherd-puppy-to-sit To teach Bella how to Stand follow one of the methods from this article below. https://wagwalking.com/training/stand-1 To teach Bella not to run out the door use the "Better Inside" method or the "Stay Inside" method". You can also combine those two methods if the door that you are practicing at does not lead into a fence. The long leash attached to your dog will ensure that she cannot slip past you by accident. Pay careful attention to her. Do not let her get past you even if there is a fence. Act like you are a soccer goalie and she is the ball and the doorway is the net. Don't let the ball get through the net. Use your body to block her and walk toward her until she backs away from the door when you get to the point where you can practice this with the door wide open. When you do want her to go outside, always tell her "Okay", "Free", "Let's Go" or some other command that you choose, that means you can pass through the door. Be consistent and never let her through the door to go outside without telling her it is alright first. Otherwise she will not respect that boundary because your rule is inconsistent. Below is the article for teaching her to stay inside. https://wagwalking.com/training/stay-inside-1 Best of luck training, Caitlin Crittenden
