So I have heard before of people to use the time out method for correcting behavioural problems, and I am not going to lie, I was lazy and didn't want to. Riley was/ still is a jumper, she wants to be in your face and lick you when she gets exicted, she also was/ still is a barker when she wants to play, so I tried everything... being a tree, tossing treats to the side, tethering her for 70% of the time with myself in the room of course, shaking a noisy can, yipeeing, and nothing really phased her, because all those methods with the exception of tethering, to her, were like "Woooohooooo we are about to have some fun right now!!" I had made a post awhile back about her barking too much and not allowing another dog friend of hers to be around us. I don't know if it was the first time I heard it or the just the first time I paid attention, but someone told me (I'm sorry I forget who at the moment) to give her a time-out for 30 seconds...thats it...and let her join the group again. And to my surprise, it worked almost immediately! After each time out, the time it took for her to misbehave to deserve another time out gradually got longer and longer. So I decided to try this with other behavioral problems....Jumping up- 30 second time out...Barking- 30 second time out...Mouthing- 30 second time out...and it is starting to work amazingly! She still needs time outs multiple times a day but the amount of time she is spending sitting on the floor knowing she gets far more attention than jumping, is increasing! One of my major problems before wa like I said I was lazy, and when I would tether her intending for it to be a time out she would be so quiet and good that I would just leave her tethered, why bother her? But then when I would finally release her she would be so excited to spend time with me again it would start all over. I think the biggest thing is the short duration, no matter how annoying it may be to get up and give 3 30 second time out's in a row, it pays off when her and I can enjoy sitting together calmly!!
