Training a Corgi to Run Away From the Door When People Knock

For this Omaha dog training session we helped Schmidt, a 2 year-old Corgi who rushes the front door to the home when people knock.

Many dogs like to rush the door when people knock or ring the doorbell. This activity also causes the dog to become arroused or excited (becase the knock or bell ring is always followed by the arrival of a new person) which makes it harder for them to control themselves or listen.

To stop the dog from running to the door when people knock or ring the doorbell, I decided to use some counterconditioning. You can learn how to teach a dog to move away from the door when people arrive by watchinig the free positive dog training video below.

This is an easy way to stop dogs from rushing or chanrging the door when peole ring the bell or knock. All it takes is time and practice, so you dont have to become a professional Corgi dog trainer to do the exercise.

Id like to see each person in the family practicing this secret to stopping dogs from running to the door at least once a day with about 20 treats per practice session. If Schmidt has problems responding when the doorbell sounds or for knocks, they need to find a way to lower the doorbell sound (like holding a pillow over the chime box) or having the person knock softer.

We covered a number of other things in this in home Omaha dog training session so we recorded a roadmap to success summary video that you can check out below.
