What to do when a dog is annoyingly asking for food or caress?

Despite the fact that this problem, as a rule, does not deliver a strong nuisance to the owner, it happens that the behavior of the dog is completely out of control. The dog starts to behave annoyingly, barks loudly, scratches, pushes, jumps, tries to bite, and it strongly affects the nerves of family members. Theoretically it is easy to solve this problem. To do this, the dog owner should take once and for all the rule to never give a dog what she is trying to get begging if she behaves in this way.

This process of teaching animals is denoted by the term suppression. In addition, it is not necessary to apply such measures of correction of problematic behavior, which can potentially encourage such behaviour. For example, it is not necessary to give the dog a toy that she did not bark when the family sits at the dining table. If a dog behaves too demanding and intrusive to simply not notice its behavior, the host should scold it or be severely punished in some other way to instantly suppress the behavior acting on the nerves. Another effective method of correction, which can be used in such cases, is to get up and leave the room as soon as the dog begins to behave unbearable. This method of ignoring a dog is a kind of mild punishment.

In principle, any dog owner understands that it seems that this treatment of the dog is correct. However, once the dog owner tried to behave accordingly, he loses such confidence. The fact is that if a dog does not get what is trying to achieve its intrusive and demanding behavior, the problem is only aggravated. Barking intensifies, the dog begins to behave more and more restlessly, runs and jumps around the room, and in the end, the owner is inferior to her.

Some dog lovers lack self-discipline and sanity. Sometimes they even find the annoying behavior of the dog amusing and, in principle, not ready to consistently apply the method of restraint necessary for the correction of behavior, without making any exceptions. As a rule, most dog owners do not believe in the effectiveness of this method, and this does not allow them to consistently and uncompromisingly use it in practice. In order to succeed, the dog owner should know exactly what is waiting for him at the individual stages of the application of the method of restraint:

1. All the well-organized animals whose behaviour is subjected to correction through a method of restraint (i.e., the owner completely refuses to practice the promotion of the form of conduct which he has encouraged in the past constantly, often or periodically), on The first stage responds to this by increasing the frequency and intensity of manifestations of such behavior. The frequency of recurrence of this form of behavior will decrease only later, after the more active attempts of the dog to achieve the desired result in this way do not bring success.

2. The process of restraint causes the dogs to have a negative reaction. The term "frustration" is often used to describe the general reaction of the animal to changing situations and parallel behaviors in similar situations where a dog cannot achieve the desired goal. Restless behavior of the dog and its sometimes aggressive attempts to achieve the desired can be compared with the reaction of a person, which is manifested when, for example, a person dropped a coin in the machine, and he does not give him a jar of the desired soft drink ( The person pushes more vigorously on a button of a coin return, first knocks on a case of a machine-gun, then kicks it with legs, swears, etc.). This is about the same emotion that the animal experiences in the first phase of the application of the method of restraint.

3. Partial encouragement leads to a stronger resistance to the process of restraint. This means that the forms of behaviour which in the past have been encouraged only on occasion (and not every time) are much more difficult to suppress than the behaviour that has been continually promoted. It seems that the dog will need a lot more time to understand that she will not be rewarded for her behavior, if in the past she is accustomed to sometimes behave in a way that does not receive encouragement. If we go back to the example mentioned above with the vending machine for soft drinks, it is clear that the person resigns with failure so quickly, because in the past he was constantly receiving a reward when lowered a coin. It is much more difficult to recognize yourself as defeated when playing in a casino with a "one-armed bandit", which rewards us only arbitrarily, from times to time, which does not allow you to predict which lever should be pressed to get a prize.
