Also, you should only do it in a fight/bite situation. If a is going crazy and barking leash corrections and verbal commands should be all you need. With that said the whole point of "pinning" a dog is to emulate what happens in the wild. A dog is not going to take another dog an just sit on top of him or put his whole body weight on him if he wants to keep him down. For dogs, the neck is the key. The proper way to for a human to do this is to take your hand and make a "mouth" where your fingers are the "teeth". Take your hand and around the front and side of the dogs neck and apply pressure. One you do that start to take him to the ground and lay him on his side. You may have to use your other arm to kick his hind legs out from underneath him. If the dog immediately goes to his side and relaxes, relax your hand on his neck and wait if he stays relaxed for, oh, 30 seconds or so then you should be ok to let the dog back up. If the dog is on his side and tries to get up, tighten your grip and "bite" him. As soon as the dog relaxes again you need to relax your grip. I always pin the dog on his side, because you can tell when the dog is relaxing. At first the dog will have his legs out and tense. Sooner or later you'll notice the legs will relax and the dog will lay flat, that's the sign of total submission. The dog needs to stay that way in order for him to be let up. If you pin the dog on his back the legs will naturally be up in the air and it's harder to tell when the dog is relaxing, plus it may make it harder for the dog to breath. Again, I can't stress this enough, this should be used as a last resort and should only be done a calm manor.
YEP! Well said!

It is not a game in which you (as a human) can win (while speaking dog).

Very rarely will you see the Alpha wolf "play" with another wolf. The Alpha knows all, see's all.

I dont open the gate when my dog is excited...i make sure she is calm, submissive, and sitting before i open. If i walk out and she is up on the gate going crazy. I give her a firm off command. Then the sit command...when she sits...the door is open. Do that consistently for a while...he or she will catch on.

Central has the right idea. How about using that leash thing?
The gate DOES NOT open until he is calm, cool, and collected.

That's about it.


Grab the leash before you open the gate. Make sure their is some slack in it if he trys to bolt give him a very stern correction.

No problem Sup, thats what we are here for.
Ball "drive" is difficult to teach, some dogs have it, and some don't. Try getting him to chew on a ball that you can hide treats in. Like this one

Easy one,
Play on a 30ft lead and tell her to "out" in a deep guttural tone. When she doesn't do it, give a light leash correction and a NO! Out!!
When she drops it, lots of praise! Repeat often

Sup,

Why on Earth would you ever leave him out? He is a pack driven animal and should usually be with his pack. Bring him on in and make a comfortable space just for him. Doesn't need to be much or anything fancy, an old blanket thrown in a corner somewhere.
Bring him in.

I've mentioned our 8-9 month old Maltese in this thread before. He has been potty trained fairly well for the past couple of months now (one accident every couple of weeks if I fed him to late in the evening maybe).

Anyway, all of a sudden he has started going in the house again, mainly at night. During the day when we are not home, we block off our hallway and keep him in there. At night when we sleep, he sleeps in his bed (which is beside our bed), and if he gets up he can only go out into the hallway as we keep it blocked off then too. Like I said, he has recently started using the bathroom in the house again at night.

We feed him three times a day, in the morning at about 8:00, at lunch at about 12:00, and then at about 6:00 or 7:00 in the evening. He usually ends up going to the bathroom in the house after midnight (I've caught him a few times).

What is the deal with this? Why did he suddenly go back to his old ways, and what can I do?

A)Because he can
B)Because he has to go

What you can do is crate him at night, not block off an area for him.

It is a very easy solution...
Good Luck
