Hi, this is Ryan Gwilliam with Expert Village, and I’m going to teach you how to cure your dog’s obsessions. The other day, actually a week ago I worked with a dog that was obsessed with biting people’s hands. He’d get really excited, he wouldn’t bite you hard, but he would bite you just to get you to pay attention to him, and so, eventually had to submit him. We talked about it on the last segment. You roll him over onto his side, and I put him down like this, and then I had to, and then I put my hand in front of him, and he would try and bite me every time. So I put on his choke collar, and I would give him a yank on the collar every time he would try and bite my hand, and it took at least thirty minutes of constantly correcting him. He’d get worn out, and then as soon as he got his energy back he’d be back at me biting me again, and it’s something that the dog’s owners couldn’t, they tried pepper spray in the mouth, they tried all kinds of things.They couldn’t get it to stop until we finally showed him that we were the pack leader, we were in charge of him, and not him in charge of us, and that he was living in our house. So now they, we’re happy to report that they don’t have a problem with it any more. Occasionally, he’ll try and snap at them, but he knows that if he does you’re going to put him on the ground, and you’re going to keep him on the ground until he stops biting, till he has the behavior that we want him to have. Another thing is a lot of dogs will be obsessed with balls and things like that, and so what you would do is throw the ball, and not let them go get it.Just claim the ball as yours, and not let them have it until you decide, and they will eventually lose that obsession over the ball. .
