Default Keep it simple, stupid

Sometimes I have to remind myself of this.

Cajun has this annoying habit of leaping out of the car at 100mph. When I open the door she knows to wait until I release her to get out. But when I release her, BOOM she lunges right to the end of her leash, if she's on one... or if she's off leash, she just leaps out and sprints off. But anyway I'm always like baahhhh Cajun why you do this I hate it.

I just recently had the revelation that... hey! I could probably teach her not to do that!! So I have been. I lure her out of the car and reward her as she's facing me. We started this a couple days ago so have only done it a small handful of times and wouldn't you know.... even without the lure and when I'm not thinking of it, she's now jumping out of the car and reorienting to me. Which also means we completely skip the part where she gets all overexcited and needs a sec to calm down. She just comes out of the gate ready to focus. Woot!

I think I do this a lot where I get frustrated with a really annoying behavior and then go... oh. I could easily just do something about it. Please tell me you guys have done the same?

I read the second sentence and was like "wow, roll your windows up and slow down"

Haha I was stuck on that sentence, reading it 10 times very confused and wondering if this was for real.

Then my brain worked again and I kept reading and was like OH!

In answer to the question, yes, I have done this before. When I first got Fable, she absolutely refused to go in her crate. I tried throwing treats, coaxing, sweet-talking, and at one point I started trying to shove her in (I know, not good) because she just would not go in. I always managed to get her in, and once she was in the there, she was an angel. Never a peep out of her. One night I got really annoyed with her and yelled "just go to your **** kennel!!" And she went in. I never stopped to think that she was in foster care for almost two months (before I fostered her) because of her litter of puppies, and that her foster mom (who I know quite well through the dog shelter) might have trained her to go in on command. Major brain fart. After that, I found out through her old foster mom that the command to go in her crate was 'kennel'. If you even whisper the word 'kennel' around Fable, she will get up and run to her crate. Silly dog.

I had the same thought. I automatically had to think of Marley & me.

I've just recently had this revelation with Abrams. I'm all like, "Wow, dog, you're behavior is really f-ing anjoying." Always before I just went with it, but now we're working on actually changing it.

Uh, yeah, story of my life. I've actually done the exact same thing with the car and was like "why the heck didn't I do this sooner?"
