Does your dog try to dart out the door as soon as it is opened? Your dog needs to know boundaries and it’s easy to teach. Put your dog on the leash. Soon as the door is opened, draw an imaginary line with your hand while saying “wait”. Be sure you are facing your dog meaning your back should be to the door. If your dog tries to pull, repeat “wait” with a hand gesture. When the dog is ready, turn and face the outdoors and say “ok”. After a few attempts at this, your dog should be able to master this quick and easy rule.
