Introduce NILF into your daily routines if your dog is currently engaging in behaviors that are rude or pushy, such as counter surfing, barking, whining, begging for food, pushing or grabbing items, nudging you for attention, digging, etc.
In addition to your training sessions, using NILF will help establish the house rules for your dog, whether they’re a new addition to your family or just in need a refresher course.
When your dog wants to go for a walk, ask them to sit, and then put on their leash.
If your dog wants a treat, put him in a sit-stay, take a few steps away, then release your dog and give him the treat.
If your dog nudges you to pet him, ask for a down, and then give him affection.
Incorporating basic training into everyday scenarios like these will remind your dog that polite manners are the key to getting the good things in life!
