Chester came for a 2 week long board and train to work on his compulsive tail chasing, which occurred whenever the energy in his household went up - whether that be children running around, someone arriving at the door, the blender or vacuum being used etc. This is the first of 3 videos I'll upload condensing his training into stages. We opted to use platform training as our foundation because it's super easy for the dog to understand and grasp, and hits 2 birds with 1 stone - he learns a behaviour that is incompatible with tail chasing (lie on your bed), and he also learns how to tolerate and ignore higher level distractions so that eventually he wont need the bed. In this video, Chester is just starting the process, learning how to get on it on cue, learning that it's a worthwhile place to be, and starting to introduce some gentle distractions.
