Using Counterconditioning to Stop a Dog From Lunging at the TV

For this Los Angeles dog training session, we showed 3 year-old Labradoodle Duncan’s guardians how to stop a dog from lunging or attacking the TV when dogs appear on the screen.

When stopping a dog from attacking the TV with counterconditioning, its crucial that the dog does not react. So when the guardians are training the dog to not lunge at the TV when dogs are on it, they will need to be precise when selecting the distance. Basically what we are doing is teaching a dog to not attack the TV by having them practice being calm when dogs are on the TV. The name the game is getting as close as you can, without the dog barking or lunging.

The best part of this trick to stop dogs from lunging at the TV is you don’t have to be a professional Labradoodle dog trainer to use this positive dog training trick.

To help the guardians remember the rest of the dog behavior tips I shared with them in this in home dog training session, we shot a roadmap to success video that you can check out below.
