    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Hi Daria,
    yes i absolutely agree about the prey drive.
    toys are never available to her when we are not playing. about the blankets and other stuff she is like to destroy(like walls), the strange thing is that she is only doing this bad behavior when me or my wife in home with her, when she is alone she behave perfect.
    im also did this mistake and play with her with socks when she was younger :D, this is why i dont think make a tug from a blanket would be a good idea.
    she is pretty much back to her play motivation, i think the best thing was done is to pley with other dog with her toys i front of her and until she was join the game 🙂
    now having other problems with her like she is start to show signs of dominance agression to other dogs.</p>
    thank you dor all the help

    thank you a lot for the great help, i will try it.
    i also think of make a tug toy from animal like squeaky plush toy or blanket, but i have told it will encourage her to steal and destroy blankets and go for little animal(also told never play with animal like toys) what do you think of that?

    Hi Daria, sorry for the delay.
    she tear them up while we playing tug and then all she car is to get all the stuffing wool out. i dont think she had any aversive experince because she is inside the home or with me on walk, never alone outside the house.
    i previously play tug with her with ropes and tug toys, and after she is stop play with them i buy some new to encourage her to play again, it works for a few times and then she get bored again.
    i dont try flirt pole but i did somthing semilar with a line and a tug toy and its drive her to play but she is going and pull the line instead o the tug toy. its actually feels more like a dog who dont want to eat is dy food but still hungry and want to eat other foods, becasue she is trying to pull on every other stuff then her toys with a lot of energy, and this is after she is eat, go out for a walk, having a chew toy/kong.
    thank you for the help, i will try the tease her like you suggest.

    Hi art, yes she see the vet a few times in the last months. Yes i know the breed well, i don’t expect her to work for a toy, just to encourage her to play because she is like to pull on blankets, my sleeves and every think other then her toys. She don’t have any toys around, sometimes some bone or nylabone. I try squeak balls and she is playing a little and then get bored. the only toy she is playing is animal like and she destroy them in minutes.

    A fee she get hit when she is run to the toy in her life from a few objects, i wonder if this can relate, because the drive lost was not immediate.

    Hi Daria,

    yes, when she is on loose leash she is on interval reward.
    i premack principle is somthing i didn’t use that much in traning so far, and now realize i shuld use more often.
    you have some more examples of premack implementation?

    Hi Daria, thank you for the fast reply.

    im actually dont expect her to complying yet, just want her the get a walk without so much corrections and to understand if im doing somthing wrong with her, is this normal that she pulls on prong when there is distractions?
    she is not so much food motivated, but in last month she get 80% of her food in traning so now she work for her kiblle. the problem in walks is that if she dont stop to chew the kibble she is choke by it and cough, and if i let her stop to chew it after every reward the walk get stuked way too much.
    treats dont get her attention unless they new. so i make her treats from chicken but it is not realistic to walk with chicken in my hand every walk. maybe i should give the kibble another try with slower pace.

    i play a lot of tug\fetch with her, but always after the walk and food she get energetic and play mood.
    its a problem in the morning because she want to get out for bathroom, but itss a good idea i wall give it a try in the evening walk see if its going to work. about running and biking with leash, i was told not to do it until she is done growing.

    Sounds like the wall, blanket eating are attention seeking behaviors- can be reinforced even if the attention you’re giving her is negative.

    so how should i react in this situations? this all happens after she was on 1 hour walk, play and eat. i am going to start phase 02 habitation with her in the next few days when i get the e-collar, but i am trying to find any solution before i do it. this is make any difference if i will do the habitation before phase 03 traning?

    about the dominance agression:
    yes she is a cannan dog, a middle east pariha dog, part wild and shows very different behavior from the modern breeds.
    she is the only dog live in my house but there is always friends who come with their dogs. she very like this dogs and always play with them since she was 3 months old.  when there is another dog in my house and me or my wife was out and get back to the house, she and the friend dog are come to the door to welcome me and then nella (my dog) attacks the other dog, who is little bit older and much stronger girl(bully mix) then her, and still she show submission to nella when she is attack her, i thing its also reinforce the behavior.
    how should i react in this situations? should i correct her? sh do show warnings
    i do like to adobt antoher dog in the future and also planing on first child, so i have to take care of this problem soon.
    hope you understand my english 😀

    Hi Daria,

    i was watch the phase 1 and phase 2 stream but should watch again.
    she will leave objects/food inside the house when we are in traning session or when i hold food in my hand and also she is not super excited(7 months old).
    for exmple when i sit on the couch and my slippers on the floor she will not leave it alone, on walks she will not leave objects alone, and might or might not out it when i say to her.
    im not expecting her to comply in high distractions yet, what im asking is how to proceed from her.

    yes, i was rewarding her with the food i was asking her to leave,  now i understand it was a mistake.
    so how shuld i introduce duration for leave it? how can i “free” her from “leave it” if i can not reward with what she asked to leave? and with “out”?

    thank you

    Hi Daria,
    she will comply in traning session and when i hold treat/food in my hand from anything, but on walks when she want to take cats pop/stick/rotten fruits around trees she wont leave it and the i need to take a treat to her nose and say “out” and she might comply and might not and then i open her mouth gently and get it out, i know this is no good but this stuff make her sick.
    on the obedience check list with leave it and out i’m only mark the behavior, how to get forward its my question, should i aplly a inteval and duration traning for leave it? because its not make so much sense to me.
    i dont start with phase 2 yet im waiting for starmark and halti to arrive.

    thank you

    Hi Art, i’m actually succeed in this very easy in traning session, she know what “leave it” mean and can even avoid a piece of chicken while i go far and keep an eye contact, and then will eat only when i say “Take it”.
    i think one of my mistake is that i’m let her have what i asked to leave after she leave it.
    also i don’t think it’s generalized for leaving other dog/people on walks.
    i can walk with her on loose leash only with no distractions at all.

    i don’t really know about the leadership question. i’m apllying the leadership exercises for a while,
    but my dog is still approach me with her tail up, but she is a Canaan dog (shpitz) and her tail is almost always up.

    thank you.
