How to train inside dog to stay outside?
Our family adopted a 1 year old Australian Shepherd, he use to be an inside dog, but the owner couldn’t take care of him because of her age. Now we want to know how to train him to live outside.
You may need to train the dog to be inside/outside since he’s been an inside dog so long. My Aussie is outside all day, but comes inside at night to be my inside guardian to keep me safe.
Please remember that Aussies are high energy dogs and you need to give him enough exercise. They LIVE to RUN! They LOVE to RUN!
Give him enough toys to keep him entertained and busy outside. Make time to play with him and run with him. If you give him enough exercise, he’ll do fine outside all day.
AND… You must provide him with shelter and water available at all times. Either buy or build him a doghouse to get out of bad weather or hot sun. He should be fine outside all day. As to night time… A lot depends on whether barking might distress your neighbors or not. Most dogs, esp. Working dogs, will tend to bark at night to ward off predators and Aussies can be somewhat nervous dogs and bark unnecessarily at times at night. You can lessen this by lighting the yard really well.
Good luck. It may take some time to get him to be an outside dog 100% of the time, unless you buy a goat or two for him to herd. -!-
How to train a dog to stay off the couch?
I looked at the other question page and it didn’t have the answers I needed. How would I train my 3 year old Yorkshire Terrier to stay off the couch, as he is keep scratching and ruining it. Could you please help me? Thanks.
If that simple command doesn’t work, use a squirt gun or water sprayer IMMEDIATELY as the dog starts to jump. Never try to discipline him after the fact.
How do you train your dog to stay when you walk away?
I’ve got my dog to sit/stay but how do I teach him to not move after I’ve left the room or area? He’s fine as long as I’m within his sight but after I leave, I can hear him still sitting for a minute or so. Once he figures out I’m not coming back, he’ll come looking for me. If I walk away and am no longer there, how exactly do I enforce this? Thanks!
You need to shorten the time you are away & not give him time to think about it. At first you just disappear for a minute & go right back & praise him. Gradually lengthen the time you are out of site.
Put him on a down stay & move away from him, as far as you can go & still keep him in sight. Leave him lay there until you see him getting ready to get up, Then you stand & say, ” (dogs name) NO. STAY. & when he falls back into the down stay praise him.
Keep it short & sweet at first & gradually increase you distance or time out of sight.
Here are a lot of sites on teaching a dog the long distance stay
