Dog control skills – Why is my grooming like fighting a dog?
The reason why the dog itself behaves
Some babies really make the beautician worry-free, this should be a good compliment to the owner who takes care of them.
1. Good growth period interaction makes the dog trust people very much. Even on the grooming stage, the dog can still give himself to the groomer with confidence. They have developed a good consciousness: human beings will not harm us such lovely Wang Xingren! (Smiley face)
2. Some dogs have received professional standing posture training. In addition to grooming dogs on the field, some owners are also very caring. If you want your own dog grooming style to be more prominent, you have to stand and sit like a clock. So I did various training at home and finally taught a high-class dog.
3. Some dogs also go to training schools to learn obedience. Those who are born in a science class are different. They stay at the grooming station. Don’t think they are stupid. They are just fully prepared.
4. If there is no deliberate training, enough socialization is fine. If the dog is more knowledgeable, he will naturally behave more calmly on the grooming stage, right? That’s nothing! come on! (Laughing)
Reasons for bad dogs
Feeling terrible about unfamiliar environments and things. Insecure will lead to fear. Of course, even the most cheerful dogs will have fears, but they can quickly adjust themselves, which is often said to be a stable signal.
However, some dogs can’t adjust well, which makes them habitually fearful, and even some dogs use attacks to protect themselves.
In fact, this responsibility cannot be attributed to the dog’s problem, because dogs are inherently inclined to explore and communicate. This is the best medicine to overcome fear. But it can produce inexplicable fear, which is not unrelated to the interaction between the owner and the dog. The comfort of the dog after the fear makes the dog unable to self-regulate in the future, thus causing long-term psychological damage.
Most dogs do not stand obediently on the grooming table because of fear, but many dogs can adjust to it with a little adjustment.
2. Feel that you have a high status
Dogs have a strong group consciousness. In the process of getting along with people, dogs can always find their most suitable position. Of course, in addition to gaining a higher position, they need to fight for themselves. There is another possibility that the owner is too petting.
The way dogs get food is too simple, and they influence their owners through their own behaviors, all of which lead dogs to think that they are kings.
Even in the pet shop, such dogs will still strive for a higher status, trying to control the groomer through their own behavior. (Haha, it thinks too much, how is it possible!)
Another headache is that the dog’s attention is very poor. Talk about professional knowledge. If a dog wants to become a racing dog, it needs to cultivate concentration during the growth process, so that it can be better on the field. In order to win in a dog race, if you still lack sufficient concentration after a period of training, your performance on the field is unpredictable and you will be judged as unstable.
Of course, we have no way to require all dogs in the family to be very focused, so in a pet shop, we will face the problem of grooming dogs who are inattentive.
A little sound will make the dog look around with excitement, and a person’s head will be tilted to look at it. This is not bad, some just take care of themselves. (Beauty, right? Don’t bother me seeing beautiful women!)
What should I do if I’m not good at beauty?
Today’s analysis is a bit lengthy! I can’t stand it anymore. (Laughing)
This kind of interpretation must have its own reason, knowing oneself and the other can survive a hundred battles! Okay, maybe this is the topic that the beauticians want to see, but I suggest that you use Taoism. The previous content is actually very important.
No matter how well-behaved a dog, when we are in contact with a dog, we should think from the perspective of respecting each other’s feelings most. It’s just like when you see someone you want to meet through a party, you must also find the right opportunity to get in touch. You will definitely not rush over and talk about it so that people will think you are crazy. Maybe because the other party is too cautious, you get a fist.
So, in fact, we shouldn’t directly touch the back of the dog’s head at the beginning. The dog has a strong sense of protection for the parts that he can’t see. If you don’t leave a good impression on him, the work that comes down may be more difficult.
In addition, we sometimes always develop the habit of talking to dogs. When you think you are expressing your love for dogs, dogs actually regard this behavior as hostility. For dogs who are easy to yield, Maybe frightened by your behavior, and some dogs may always be wary of you. If possible, in fact, we don’t need to look at the dog all the way, unless you want to conquer it with your eyes. (Smiley face)
For dogs who are misbehaving because of fear, after a stable signal appears, they can strengthen interaction with the dog in time, and the dog will adapt quickly and the grooming work can be carried out smoothly.
The training of the dog needs to be repeated, so repetition is the only way to adjust the dog. I will explain how to train at the grooming table from the four methods of dog training. (Although it may not be able to achieve the goal quickly, this is definitely the most correct method)
Positive reinforcement: Constantly put the dog’s standing posture patiently, and make sure to seize the opportunity to praise when it is short and quiet.
Negative reinforcement: If the dog is always uncooperative, you can stop it with a stern voice, then stand up, be quiet, and praise.
Positive punishment: use is strictly prohibited! Of course, sometimes we will frighten the dog: “I don’t behave anymore and hit you”, you may not really implement a positive punishment, but from the perspective of communication, you do not consider the feelings of the dog owner and the feelings of the people next to you.
Negative punishment: There is a safety rope on the grooming table. We can use the safety rope to fix a part of the body, and then hold the other part with our hands, so that we can achieve the purpose of standing. After the dog is stable, the safety rope can be completely relaxed. Remember not to strangle your neck directly here.
In addition to positive punishment, we can use three other ways to get dogs to accept grooming. Of course, the ultimate point must be that dogs accept grooming willingly, otherwise, they will face the same problem next time. Read more at Dog Central.
