Getting dog into a dog blind

Postby lt1chevelle » Fri Oct 18, 2013 6:46 pm

What kind of tricks or tips do you guys have to get your dog into a blind. I just got a invisilab dog blind an need some help getting her to go in. She will go 3/4 of the way in to get her bumper but wont go all the way in unless I push her ass in, once I do that she will lay down and stay till I release her. Any Info would be awesome .

you don't ask the dog to go in it, you command the dog in using the "kennel" command.

Just got one today too. A couple dog bones in it to get him in and familiar with it. Then "kennel" and throw him some marks when he is situated in it. Be prepared for some confusion, but if he wants the marks he will eventually get back in.

Be patient and your dog will come around. Good luck.

I started using kennel when he was only 3 months old. Every time he was put in his crate, I would say "kennel" once in the kennel i would give him a treat. It seemed once he was collar conditioned, it became very easy for him to move over to going in the blind. I would command him in the blind with "kennel" once in there i would praise him or reward him with a treat. Directly after I would throw marks. This was fairly easy for the most part. Goodluck

No offense, but there are times when I really wish people would use the search function...this topic was covered ad nauseum....
