Nosey dog

On walks if Diesel sees anyone he will watch them until they are gone. Like if a person is on a jog, he will wag his tail, want to go up to them and if I don't let him, he will sit until they are out of his site. He watched the gardeners like it was the most entertaining thing in the world! He even made himself all comfortable by laying down to watch.

I'm glad he is friendly and likes/wants to approach people but it's really annoying, he doesn't need to meet everyone he sees. There is just no way to get him to take his focus off the people he sees. It's like he's in a trance. Any suggestions?

I would just keep walking and drag him along until he gets the picture that ur not stopping. With my boxer I use to have to give a little yank then continue walking and he finally caught in.

You can't get his attention back because he's over threshold. He literally can't hear you so in a way, it is a trance...

You're at an advantage because he's not reacting outwardly, per se... But this is one of the most helpful resources out there IMO for building focus around distractions and lowering thresholds (i.e., making it easier for him to "snap out of it" and redirect his focus onto you.)

A lot of this is geared toward combatting leash reactivity and the like, but it's going to be really helpful for your situation too. It's all about acting BEFORE your dog has entered that zone of no return (in your case, staring and watching) and working consistently to decrease your dog's threshold for stimulation and instead, turn his focus onto you when he sees something exciting.

I agree with Beret, your pup is young best to address now. I like the clicker because it keeps emotion out of your voice. My boy could pick up on emotion really easy, he also used to be QUICK to go over the threshold that was described above. Lots of subtle signals can be picked up on, but the main thing is to make sure you see any and all distractions before your dog does, so when he does see them you do not give him time to reacts or give the stink eye as I call it. Stare down, whatever it is that's not making your boy feel relaxed and able to focus on what you're asking him. Another indicator your dog is over the threshold is they will rarely take high value treats until they go back below their threshold.

The above method is known as Positive reinforcement training. here is another video about it. These are extreme cases, but you can get the jist of that the PDF detailed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMLr...-KiOojUtlInJ9w

I do not agree with everything in this video. I use a combination approach or positive and corrective, my boy did not do well when he was allowed to make his own walks as positive training allows. I do not allow him to follow and sniff after dogs, I go where I want him to go and I use a prong collar. According to this guy its punishment, I do not agree, I think every dog is different some things work and some do not its about taking the time and finding what works for you and your dog.
