Many of you know that I was not the brightest bulb in the tanning bed when I was in school.

I wish I had put more effort into learning, because after high school I did continue my education by going to school to learn how to train dogs.

There was a lot to learn and I was in trouble every time there was a test.

Luckily, I came up with a way to help pass tests.

I didn’t cheat but I did use acronyms to increase my ability to pass tests.

I continued coming up with acronyms when it came to dog training and I developed one that I have been teaching to dog owners for years and I am going to share it with you today.

The M.U.T.T. Method is what you can use whenever you have a behavior problem.

Here’s how it works:

When you have a behavior problem, the first thing you have to do is Manage the behavior.

The next step is to figure out what the Underlying problem is.

Next, you need to Teach your dog new behaviors and the last step is

Time.

For instance if your dog digs, the first step is to manage the behavior by not allowing the dog outside by himself.

The next step is to figure out what the underlying problem is.

Is it breed specific?

Is the dog bored?

Frustrated?

Once you determine what the underlying problem is, you can now start to teach a different behavior.

One of my dogs loved to dig so I built him his own sandbox. He could dig as much as he wanted because I would fill it back up.

It took me about a week to teach him that was the only place he was allowed to dig.

Following the M.U.T.T Method can help you with ANY behavior problem.

Try it out and see for yourself, and if you really want to learn more about fixing behavior problems, you’ll want to dig in to the Good K9 Manners course

Good K9 Manners

You’ll be able to stop begging, jumping, stealing and more.

All the best,
