Presented by Yvette Van Veen

CEUs: PPAB 1.5

Learn the steps that you can use to teach a dog to go to their bed, not because you say so, but because the dog hears someone at the door. Have the dog stay there until released!  Imagine life with a dog that runs away from the door, not towards it!


  • Learn the breakdown, all the steps required to get this skill despite distractions at the door.
  • Understand how training this problem “when guests arrive” can be the wrong approach.
  • Learn why some dogs snub cookies when guests arrive and how to overcome it.
  • Why some dogs get worse not better even when families think they are reinforcing good behavior.
  • Learn the value of weakening the power of the sound of the doorbell.
  • Why it’s important to cut yourself some slack and decide it’s necessary to focus fully on the dog during training.  You can put your dog away when you’re distracted!
