For this Omaha dog training session we helped Ryker, a 3 year-old Bouvier learn how to stay behind an invisible boundary to help him develop some impulse control.

The family mentioned that they wanted to get a puppy, so I knew that Ryker needed to develop and practice some impulse control. We worked on a boundary exercise to teach Ryker to wait at a doorway while his guardians or guests come into the house. Here’s a free dog training video that covers how to implement an invisible boundary.

Ryker also needs an outlet for some of his energy. I shared some tips and creative ways to exercise Ryker. We also discussed using several different versions of canine enrichment to keep him stimulated and occupied. Ryker had a food dispensing toy, but I suggested that they grab a couple more, specifically a snuffle mat and toys that he could move around to get the food from. Not only do treat dispensing toys provide a nice distraction, they are sneaky ways to burn off excess energy in dogs.

To help Ryker’s guardian’s remember all of the positive dog training tips from our in-home Omaha dog training session, I recorded a Roadmap to Success that you can view below.
