Lack of attention from the owners

Without any doubts, we can affirm that there doesn't exist two identical exemplars, not just of physical aspect, but also in what is related to its specific needs, being of food, sanitary, of exercising, affective, etc.

With respect to the needs of affection, there are exemplars that consider insufficient the amount of affection or attention generally with negative behaviors, situations that will make conducts may be: hyperactivity, destruction of furniture, constant barking, evacuation, etc.

The dog pretends to be the center of constant attention of his owners, for him, these formula's are as valid as any others. As an example of this last quotation, there is the case of an exemplary that in determined stage of his life and to avoid any special surveillance (for him, attention) by his owners: Once the problem cured, and the dog evacuating outside at all moments (he would only evacuate inside the house when the owners received guests), which implied necessarily that the dog was left behind to a second plane of attention. Circumstance he wasn't going to tolerate.

The answer to this variation of conduct s logical, the dog associates to evacuate on an inappropriate place with receiving Immediate attention from his owners. At this point, the dog doesn't care if the attention is due to a good or bad thing he has done. As long as he has it.

If the dog evacuates in an inadequate place, and if you think that he has done it to attract your attention and you can discard of the existence other problems for which he would be capable to make him do this then, by the adequate methods, we will proceed to give him a greater level of independence and to apply the corresponding negative conditioning for the improper evacuation.

For the application of the remote conditioning of acoustic aversion, you will proceed as detailed on the former chapter dedicated to the education. As for the level of independence, it will be increased with a process called of evasion. Such process will serve for that these exemplars a great dependency with respect to the human pack, will gradually see themselves in the need to do without the presence of reference of the components of the same.

With this, we will not only attain a higher level of independence for the dog, but also that he won't always want to be the center of attention.

First of all, make the dogs go out from the room he is in, when entering the same, any members of the family. This will make the dog to be constantly changing rooms and to get used to staying alone, when tired of tolerating this continuous contact with the family. This attitude will be taken by all the members of the family during at least three hours per day, of course within a schedule in which you can count with the presence of several of the components.

Independently from any type of mischief the dog is doing to call the attention, be it evacuations or not, you must ignore him. You will not show him any sign of response and, of course you will not leave the room, because then there wouldn't be any effects, for the animal to perceive our indifference.

In the same way, when the animal comes near us looking to be pet, you must severely reject him, as harsh as this attitude might seem, it is the adequate. This will cause a double effect. On one side, it will accentuate more, if it can, the grade of independence of the dog with respect to the family and, by the other side, it will increase the correct relation of dominance/submission that must exist between owner and his exemplary.
