Teach Your Dog Not to Door Dart

Understanding the Behavior

Door darting is a common problem where dogs dash out the door as it opens. Understand the reasons behind this behavior to address it effectively.

Creating a Safe Space

Designate a safe area or use a leash while opening the door to prevent your dog from escaping. 

Positive Reinforcement

Use positive reinforcement techniques to encourage your dog to stay calm during door interactions. 

Consistent Training

Consistency is key in training. Practice door behavior exercises regularly to reinforce the desired response.

Stay Command

Teach your dog the 'stay' command and practice it during door exercises. This command helps keep your dog in place when the door opens

Distraction Techniques

Use distractions like toys or treats to redirect your dog's focus away from the door. 

Ignoring Excitement

Ignore your dog's excitement during door interactions until they remain calm. Reward them only when they display the desired behavior.
