Restraint Tolerance: teaching dogs to accept handling

Views: 1484

Even though dogs have been living with people for hundreds of years, there is still something a little artificial about it, and the arrangement makes demands on dogs to behave in ways that might not come naturally. When a dog needs to be examined by the vet, for example, they need to allow their body to be handled, and possibly held still, without reacting against it. Even in every day life, humans like to stroke and even hug dogs, which might not be as enjoyable for the dog.

To prepare them for this, teaching restraint tolerance as a trained behaviour, especially at an early age can be very useful.

In this video, Brenda Aloff shows how to go about teaching this in a way that keeps the dog comfortable.
