Boundary Training Series

Ultimate Impressive Impulse Control


Boundary Training Course

A very important aspect of developing a balance between calm and energy (an on/off switch) is training your dog to go to a boundary. To train with reliabiity, this course will utilize games to teach your dog to go to and stay in a designated area until released. This could be a mat, a crate, a dog bed, a tent, a platform – you name it! Boundary training has so many benefits and applications for real-life situations:

  • They promote and develop calmness
  • They promote and develop impulse control (self-control)
  • They can decrease arousal and promote calmness
  • They can increase arousal and boost motivation(yes they can do both!)
  • They support the vital concepts of confidence, focus, and calmness
  • They assist and can be a recall option
  • They teach good manners and default behaviors
  • They are a soultion to preventing or working through certain problem behaviors
  • It's a safe place for a timid or fearful dog to go to
  • They are an excellent management and sanity-saving strategy for multi-dog households
  • They clarify and clean up your training sessions

So what do boundary games consist of and what is the criteria included in the course? To your dog, boundary games teach:

  • You go in this area on cue
  • You stay in this area and are calm
  • You do not leave this area until you hear your release cue
  • Your release cue means leave the area and interact with me or something I direct you to

Seems simple right? These games not only become a crucial management process for any dog, including high-drive dogs, but they also train essential life skills called concepts! Here are a few that playing these simple games can convey:

  • When the dog goes to a boundary, the default behavior is to be calm
  • The dog switches off (lower arousal) and then switches back on (higher arousal) only if or when you signal
  • Some areas and distractions are sometimes out of bounds and that’s a good thing
  • Your release cue means your dog can go interact with something fun - and that fun thing is YOU most of the time or something else you designate
  • Your dog learns good impulse control and good manners for a variety of situations, from home visitors, to meal times, work at home, etc.
  • There may be things going on around your dog, something that will be exciting, but your dog learns to remain calm and in control, staying in a calm place and head-space until you are ready for your dog to join you

Training the simple rules of the game to your dog, you convey numerous messages that, with a little help, can be generalized to a variety ofsituations, which is really cool!
