How to Train Your Dog to Alert on Command.

In today’s video, we’ll be teaching our dog(s) how to be a deterrent or an alert command. This is much easier to teach than you may think and if you follow the step-by-step process demonstrated in this video, you’ll be sure to find success!

Step one: Teach your dog to bark on command. This will be the deterrent.

Step two: Say your command and have the decoy/helper come out to tease your dog with the toy.

Step three: Practice this in multiple environments to help your dog become generalized to the training.

In regard to the science part, keep in mind that when you are training your dog the science is always the same; what varies between each dog are things like motivation, perseverance, intelligence, temperament, disposition, etc. Being able to adjust for each dog’s specific needs is considered the art of dog training.

Because of this, not all techniques work on all dogs; and as a result, you have to be able to adjust accordingly. For example, a dog with a very high level of perseverance will continue to work through a difficult task to get a reward—while other dogs may give up early.
