Introducing A New Object To Your Dog
Our furry companions don't always know how to react to unfamiliar objects, so how do you introduce a new object to your dog to make them feel comfortable and excited instead of afraid?

    All dogs react differently to new or unfamiliar objects- how does yours react?

      @Jimbo newguy small baby steps. I have a traumatised rescue dog, and I found just getting on his level helped, I.e. lying on the floor near him so you weren’t quite in his space but he knew if he chose he could move closer or away. Talking to him, putting clothing, blankets with your scent in the areas he sleeps, can help. With regards to collars, harnesses, maybe use a soft cloth collar or harness indoors so he gets used to having something against his skin, using treats when you put it on and take it off to associate the wearing with something positive? Reading other stories in the rescue group I adopted my dog from, it can take anywhere from a couple of months to a couple of years for the dog to fully decompress, but consistent routine is the key as this site says, and it does work. It’s going to be a long haul journey, but the rewards of seeing your dog slowly take each small positive step is worth the time, patience and work you put in. Good luck!

      My dog Alfie has now finally interacted with a treat ball. Smoky bacon treats were the missing link! I’ll continue working with this and gradually bring in the play aspect of getting him to find the ball. Your tips with getting him to interact with us more by attaching him to us helped, but he still wanted to hide upstairs, so we put a stair gate at the bottom of the stairs to make it clear that he had to spend time with us. He will sleep by the front room door usually, but is slowly choosing to stay in the same room as us on occasion even when the stair gate is open for him to go back upstairs. He is also starting to show some play bows now when wanting a treat that we are holding out to him. Small steps...🙂

      We have a very intense St Bernard boarderline agressive but becomes very kind and affectionate to strangers when in unfamiliar place. Weird

  • Heidster

    serious question; I get the re-direct aspect opposed to saying no - he said get them back to the nose and he showed the treats - however she was playing and trying to chew on the harness - I get that it redirects her attention but does it look like a reward to bad behavior? I've heard both instructions, I just want to make sure my re-directing isn't encouraging bad behavior

    No idea if this comment will get read as I see this video is 8 months old. I’m an upper limb amputee, I have one hand. How could I adapt introducing my pup to a harness using this method. I wouldn’t be able to hold a treat in front of the harness whilst slipping the harness over my 10 week old pups head. I’d like to get Loki used to the harness early while I am training at home so he is ready and accepting of the harness when he can go out for walks. He will be ready to go out for walks in 4 more weeks when he has had all of his vaccinations. I’d love to learn an adaptation of this method.

    It's so cool when Cesar Said: "Junior, show them ur last name", the only thing junior reacted to was its name, so Cesar guided him with his body language to move closer.. Dogs don't know sentences, they associate words with energy and reactions.

    Hello Cesar, I have two mixed labradors, they are both quite spoiled I would say as my family and I didn't really knew how to take care of dogs until I started to watch your videos. The problem I face is they do not react much to objects. It does not want to play fetch since young and one of them is literally afraid of anything that rolls towards it and rain, it hates the rain and gets all sad looking, I don't know how to calm him down and make him less tense when its raining. For the fetching problem, I tried using a plastic ball, a golf ball or any type of ball but my dogs would either watch it roll away or walk away from it when it gets near or touches their paw. I don't know how to make them engaged with the game of playing fetch as they tend to stay on the ground, laying down and falling asleep most of the time. How do I get my dogs engaged in a the simple basic game of fetch? Please do a tutorial on it, as I am quite curious since the two mixed labradors are 2 yrs old now and going to be 3 years old by the end of this year. Is it too late to fix their lazy habits?

    So what if you live with other people whose energy is not calm? Relatives, children? How do you keep your dog and objects within your own energy? Or how do you keep your own energy protected from those around you also?

    Hey Cesar, love the new channel! Would love to see you do something similar to I think it’s a great way to learn more about them as animals and get some more insights into how you read and assess different dogs and body language (and how this influences your approach to them). And of course it would be fun to meet some different members of your pack 😊 Keep up the great work 👍

    What if the harness already is a negative symbol for the dog? Is it still possible to flip that energy to a positive one? Is there a way I could make my dog happy with the harness? I have a Pudelpointer who, each time he sees or hears the harness, bend his tail and go hide in a corner of the house. I wish I could make him love this experience..

    Can dogs sense mom's apprehension or fear, I was taking my dogs for a hike in the woods, I noticed someone behind me,,he followed us to our secret hiking spot miles into the woods, He then stopped behind my car briefly, then pulled next to me,,I sensed something not good, and backed out and left,,they acted like, what is going on, this our our spot in the woods,,but I felt something was not right and left. I don't know if they could feel my fear, and wonder now if they would have protected me, should something happen,,was very strange,,I have a Newfoundland,,and a basenji,,all and all it creeped me out!

    Dear Cesar :) You have a real fan in me. When I read through some of the commentary made by other socalled 'traditional' dog trainers, I send them this message like I am on a mission with purpose wherever I stumble across petty professionally jealous insane people: Emerantia Antonia Parnall-Gilbert 8 minutes ago (edited) "Cesar Millan is a Dog God...and there is not one other in the industry that matches his knowledge, instincts, discipline and canine expertise (and all the animal species he handles). Humans are inherent 'caretakers' of the animal kingdom from times beginning. Millan is one of such very special people who are borne to it. I would say get off your pedantic pedastal arses all you jealous critics out there, you will never match up to the degree with which Millan FIXES PEOPLE. " I hope you for one can see the nuances Cesar, behind my jesting, but I have always believed whether it be animals or babies, these standard traditional psychologists of decades past always messed up big with their inappropriate safe theories in hindsight as history has proved as other methodologies evolved. I think you are a real Trooper, as my military husband would have said (God bless him). I greatly admire you, your fine and well loved sons, and the work you do and hope to continue to do, to 'rehabilitate people!" No jesting here - its simply the facts haha! The dogs generally get you so no issues there LOL!

      Have you tried a drimmel? Our last dog was so protective of his feet he had talons! I tried everything with him and it was a no go! After he passed we got 2 new puppies and immediately started the ritual of nail trimming with exercise first, let them relax after, then we introduced treats, then the drimmel. We took it EXTRA slow with the drimmel too. Letting them get to know it without it even being on. Then we turned it on and just laid it on the floor in front of them. Then we turned it off and got them used to seeing and feeling the object on their nails, so on and so forth super slow. Supplying them with treats throughout. End result, we have two dogs that will just lay on their sides and let us trim all 4 feet without even pulling away. No treats needed.

    Hey Ceasar I have a question for you so my dog she is a good dog but she hates and barks at men other than myself so how can I get her to be less fearful of men? She was abused by men when she was a puppy so I figured that is one of the components on why she can be aggressive towards men out off fear.
