Training Your Cavoodle

The following article is a direct download from a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Dog Training Specialist They didn't have one specially for Cavoodles at the time but may have now.

I have recently searched for the same site but couldn't find it so recommend you do a google search for puppy training and what applies to one breed majorly applies to others.

Membership is free So I have left their web address there for you

Training exercise 1

Over the next few days, we are going to send you dozens 
of tips and techniques to help you quickly and easily 
train, maintain and take care of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
These techniques have been thoroughly tested and 
researched by the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Training Institute - so, 
after reading the mini course, we absolutely guarantee 
that you will be well on your way to having a loving, 
well-trained and perfectly obedient Cavalier King Charles Spaniel!
The techniques mentioned in this course will generally 
be applicable for both a puppy as well as an adult 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. In case a particular technique is applicable 
only to a puppy or only to an adult Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, we have 
mentioned that before discussing the technique.
In this course, you will discover tips for
* Housebreaking your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
* Training your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel & making it obedient
* Teaching the basic commands to your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
* Taking care of the diet of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
* Stopping your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel from barking and biting
and a lot, lot more!
So, without wasting any more time, let's begin with 
today's topic - which is all about housebreaking your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
If done properly, housebreaking your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel does not 
have to be as much of a hassle as some owners make it 
to be.
Your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is a creature of habit. If it is taught 
where you want it to eliminate, and you control its 
food and water intake to regulate when it will 
eliminate, you will have a happy relationship 
relatively free of accidents.
The biggest mistake made by Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owners is 
inconsistency. It is important that you first choose 
the method of housebreaking appropriate for you and 
your pet and secondly stick with it. We know of many 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owners who are impatient or inconsistent when 
housebreaking their pets. The end result is a pet that 
is never fully housebroken.
So, remember the three P's - persistence, patience and 
praise, and you are guaranteed success.
Here are the 3 methods you can use to housetrain your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel:
i) The Paper Method - The paper method seems to work 
better with a puppy than with an adult Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, 
although it can be used on both.
To begin housetraining your pup with the paper method, 
first you must choose a location where your puppy will 
be staying until housetrained.
Make sure the room is puppy proofed and that 
elimination on the floor in this area will not cause 
permanent damage to your home.
A bathroom or small kitchen is usually a good place for 
this.
Once you have chosen an area, cover the entire floor 
with newspaper.
If you have a young puppy, it will eliminate much more 
often than when it is older. So, just be prepared for 
many messes in the beginning.
In the beginning, it is important to replace the paper 
as soon as possible after the elimination has occurred.
This helps your puppy establish the area as its own, 
and it will help you get a better idea of where it 
favors doing its business.
As your puppy eliminates throughout the day, it may go 
in several different areas of the room.
But, as it gets a little more used to its room, it will 
choose a certain area where it prefers to eliminate.
When its preferred area for elimination is established, 
begin removing the paper from the rest of the room, 
only covering the area it uses.
Make sure you leave its papered area large enough so 
that it does not miss the paper.
If it misses the paper, the area is too small and you 
need to add more paper.
When it uses its papered area, praise it. The more 
your puppy associates a reward with its choice of the 
paper instead of the linoleum, the quicker your puppy 
will be trained.
After it has established that it will use the papered 
area instead of the floor, begin moving the paper 
towards the area (presumably somewhere outside your 
house) where you want it to go when fully trained.
The paper should only be moved a little at a time 
towards this location. If moving the paper confuses 
your puppy, you may only be able to move about one inch 
per day, until the paper reaches its final destination.
Once your puppy understands that it is to eliminate 
only on the paper, and you have been able to move 
towards the area where it will eventually go outside, 
monitoring its habits will be much easier.
Once the paper is completely removed, it will go to 
that area automatically and sniff or turn circles, 
letting you know it has to go out.
Crate Training - Crate training can be used on both a 
puppy and an adult Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and is probably the most 
effective and efficient way to housetrain your pet.
No Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will want to eliminate in a place it 
considers to be its own and therefore, unless left in 
its crate for too long, it will not eliminate in its 
crate.
Once every hour, place your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel on a leash and
walk it in the area where you want it to go potty.
If it has not gone in five minutes, return it to its 
crate for another hour.
After another hour goes by, the dog that did not go 
last time will most likely go this time.
When it does go, be sure and praise it profusely and 
return it to its crate. The excitement in your voice 
when you are praising it will help it better 
understand that THIS is the place you want it to go.
Once that is established, it will do its best to make 
you happy by eliminating in its designated area.
Once you feel it understands where it is to go to 
potty, you may lessen its crate time, and begin opening 
up its area to more than just its crate.
Be sure and open up its area a little at a time so it 
clearly establishes the larger area as "its area", 
increasing the desire to keep its area clean.
Eventually, you will be able to open up your entire 
home, but this is only after a lot of time has been 
spent training and proof that it understands.
Litter Pan Method - This method will have the best 
chance of success with an young puppy but an older 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel may be able to litter train with success as 
well.
Similar to paper training, litter box training begins 
in a confined area such as a bathroom or kitchen.
Although you may be able to use a traditional cat 
litter box for this purpose, pet supply stores do sell 
doggy litter boxes. They are shaped a little different 
and are a bit larger than the traditional kitty box. 
Also available are special litters and papers that 
should eventually be used in the box.
Like paper training, the beginning stages have paper 
lining the entire floor of the room. You continually 
change any soiled paper until the puppy chooses a place 
on the floor it likes to eliminate.
Once the puppy has eliminated in an area about the size 
of a litter pan for approximately two weeks, place a 
litter pan on the floor and paper inside the litter 
pan.
When it goes and does its business inside the litter 
box, make sure to praise it profusely. It has got to 
establish this is the correct behavior before it will 
be comfortable with it.
Once it is used to the litter box with the paper, you 
may begin the change to doggy litter if desired. As 
time goes on, you may add additional litter until 
eventually the paper is gone and only litter remains.
If you choose this method, you must clean the litter 
box every time your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel eliminates. It will not
go in a dirty box. Failure to consistently clean the
litter box will result in your puppy reverting back to
the floor.
Follow any of the above 3 methods consistently, and you 
should soon have a fully house-trained Cavalier King Charles Spaniel!
Well, that's all the time that we have for today. We 
will send the next email to you tomorrow. It will talk 
about training your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and making it
obedient.
Of course, what was covered in today's email is just a 
small fraction of what you need to know in order to 
fully housetrain your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
There are dozens of other extremely important tips and 
techniques that you need to keep in mind before you can 
start housetraining your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and there isn't 
sufficient space in a single email to describe them 
all.
Plus, there are numerous mistakes that many new 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owners make when they are housetraining their 
pets, and there isn't enough space here to cover all 
these mistakes so that YOU don't accidentally make 
them.
In order to learn about the important housetraining 
tips and techniques that have NOT been described in 
this email, and to learn about the common mistakes made 
by new Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owners when they are housetraining 
their pets (so that you can avoid them), check out our 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lovers Membership Site at:
http://cavalierkingcharlesspaniel.dogtraininginstitute.com/index.php?p=m&e=6&i=249993
There is an entire book devoted to housetraining your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in our membership site.
Once you have implemented all the techniques mentioned 
in this book, you can put a permanent end to the sheer 
sense of pain and frustration that you feel when you 
suddenly discover that your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has relieved 
itself in exactly those places that you didn't want it 
to.
You will have the peace of mind of knowing that when 
you return home from work, the floor of your house, 
your carpets and your furniture will not be dirty or 
permanently ruined because your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has gone to 
the bathroom in the most inappropriate of places.
Other members of your family will no longer complain to 
you that your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has not been house-trained 
properly.
Plus, you will save dozens of hours of your time every 
week because you will no longer have to waste time 
trying to figure out on your own as to how you can 
potty train your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel... our book will give 
you detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to do 
so!


Training exercise 2

Today, we'll talk about how to train your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and 
make it more obedient.
The key to success in training your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is 
understanding the psychology of your pet - i.e. how its 
mind works, and then incorporating that with proven 
training techniques and a few training aids.
Remember, your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is not a human and therefore 
does not think or react as a human would. Also, your 
pet does not verbally communicate with humans and you 
should not think that it does.
It may recognize the word "out" and associate it with 
going outside, but that is only because it is a common 
action that occurs consistently before it goes outside.
If you change the verbal word you use to communicate 
with your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel along the way, your pet will no 
longer understand what you want. It is important that 
whatever word you choose to give a command, you stick 
with that same word each and every time, without the 
least alteration.
Also, before you can even begin training your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, 
your must establish that you are the "Master" and your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is the "Follower".
Remember, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has an inherent trait that makes 
it a social animal, needing a dominance subordination 
hierarchy. You must establish that you are the leader 
of its pack before you will be successful with any type 
of training. This is called "social reinforcement".
The following items will help you establish that 
leadership role in the life of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel:
i) Do not compromise with your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. For example, 
if you want it to perform a desired behavior, don't 
just give up and walk away when it does not perform. 
Instead, use some type of reinforcement to show it that 
its behavior was not correct, such as withholding the 
treat or toy.
ii) You should always initiate interaction with your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and terminate the interaction with your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel rather than the other way round.
iii) Avoid tending to your pet's every desire. Rewards 
should only be given for desired behavior, and should 
never be given just like that.
iv) When you are spending time with your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, pet, 
talk and touch it often. This will help establish the 
trust needed to truly set you forth as the leader.
Obedience Training Styles
Just like housebreaking, when you are training your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the key thing is consistency. You need to 
pick a training style that is suitable for you and your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and stick with it.
The two most popular types of obedience training are 
leash and collar training and reward training.
We won't have the time to describe these techniques
in detail in this email - so we will just give you
a short overview of these techniques.
In the leash and collar type of training, the leash is 
used in the beginning as the tool to teach the correct 
behavior, then once the behavior is learned, the leash 
is only used to correct unwanted behavior.
A mistake often made by the novice owner with this type 
of training is they forget the leash is used only as a 
tool.
Often a novice owner will abuse the leash to nag at 
the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
This defeats the purpose of the leash. The leash must 
be used only to get the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to obey. It is used to 
establish the leadership role between master and pet, 
but to be successful in training, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel must 
understand the command with or without the leash and 
you must be able to utilize any tool at hand to solicit 
the correct behavior from your pet, not just a leash.
Reward training usually incorporates food rewards or a 
reward that is associated with getting food. The 
associated award could be the command "Good". Many 
owners now use a clicker as an associated reward.
A secret to making the reward trained Cavalier King Charles Spaniel reliable 
is working the pet around distractions in its 
environment and teaching proper socialization.
If you only train your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in the house, it will 
not be used to extra stimuli. The well trained 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, then exposed to unfamiliar people, may not 
respond as desired. When reward training, it is 
important you train both inside and outside your home 
to make sure your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is exposed to as much 
stimuli as possible.
Another important tool in communication between you and 
your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is the tone of your voice when delivering 
a command.
The command "Good" will have a more positive tone. The 
excitement in your voice will be picked up by the 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and it will eventually associate it with the 
feelings of acceptance for that response to the 
previous command.
The word "No" will have a more forceful tone, usually 
associated with a negative response, such as a stern 
tug on the leash if leash training. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will 
eventually establish that tone as an indication for an 
undesired response to your command.
As you move on in your training, the tone will be as 
important to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel as the command itself.
Also frequently overlooked by the novice owner is body 
language. Once you get to know your pet better, you 
will understand its meaning behind specific body 
motions.
An owner who really understands his/her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will 
see even the slightest head movement in certain 
situations and understand exactly what it means. This 
enables the owner to give a command prior to a behavior 
occurring.


Training exercise 3

Before we begin instructions for individual commands, 
it is important that you understand the pitfalls to 
avoid and tips for success when teaching the basic 
commands to your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
* Always use your pet's name when speaking to it. This 
will increase its attention to you when calling it or 
giving it a command.
* When you give a command, enforce it. Do not repeat 
the command over and over again. If it does not respond 
to the command, manipulate its body into the command 
position if appropriate. Never give a command if you do 
not intend to enforce it. You will lose credibility 
with your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel by doing this.
* Always reinforce desired behavior. Reinforcement does 
not always have to be a treat. Your touch and voice can 
be enough reinforcement to help the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel understand 
it did what you desired.
* Never reinforce undesired behavior. No matter how 
they tilt their head or make you feel bad, never 
reinforce the undesired behavior. Remember, your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is also learning how to manipulate you. If it 
does not perform the desired command, it is imperative 
that you ignore it, then try again in a few minutes. 
Eventually, it will respond to your command because of 
its born-in desire to please you.
* Never punish desirable behavior. Many owners do not 
realize that when their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel performs the desired 
action, such as going to the bathroom outside, and then 
the owner immediately walks away, they are punishing 
their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel by ignoring them. Stay with your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel after the desired behavior is performed. Make 
sure it understands that what it did was good and you 
are happy before leaving it.
* A trick for success is keeping your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 
interested. Remember, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will only learn if it 
is having fun. Know when to quit when training. Trying 
to do too much too soon will mentally exhaust the 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and it will be much harder to train.
We'll now discuss 2 of the basic commands that you 
should teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. However, because of space 
constraints, we won't have time to discuss all the 
basic commands that you should teach to your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

COME
Teaching your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to come is one of the most 
important commands it will ever learn.
It is also a command that will take a lot of time to 
successfully learn.
Begin by waiting until your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is already 
approaching you, then when two to three feet away,
use your pet's name along with the command "COME"
("SCOUT COME"). Always use the name of your pet
first before you use the command.
When the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel gets to you, praise it. You should 
repeat this exercise as often as you can for several 
months.
As your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel begins to associate "COME" with a good 
thing, you can gradually increase the distance.
If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel does not come, then it has not yet made the 
association of the word to the action. Give it time, 
it will eventually understand.
The key to success with this command is for your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to always associate the command "COME" with a 
good thing.
A common mistake made by novice handlers is they use a 
firm tone with the command causing the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to 
associate fear with the command. If a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel fears 
you, its instinct will be to run away instead of coming 
near.
NEVER chase your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel when using the command 
"COME". This is a sure way to teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that 
"COME" is a bad thing.
Once you believe your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel understands the command, 
begin to reinforce it.
Put a lead on your pet's collar and allow the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 
to run around with the lead dragging behind. Gently 
pick up the lead, without the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel noticing and say 
"SCOUT COME". If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel does not come, then 
gently pull the lead forcing it to come. Repeat this 
test often.
Another exercise to test the "COME" command is having a 
family member walk the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, on a leash, away from 
you. Give the command "SCOUT COME" and see if the 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel comes. Repeat the command if it does not come 
the first time. If it does not come the second time, 
give a third command, but this time have the family 
member walk the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel towards you until it reaches 
you. Be sure and give the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a lot of praise when 
it reaches you, even if the command was performed with 
assistance.
OFF
This command is used to tell your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that it 
should not touch an item with its mouth or paws.
It can be taught by containing the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a 
controlled environment with only a few items that may 
distract it.
As soon as it reaches for one of the items, use the 
command "SCOUT OFF". Praise it when it leaves
the item alone.
Eventually you can begin to walk it around and use the 
command "OFF" in a larger area.
It will eventually understands that this means to leave 
the item alone when the command is used.
It is an especially nice command to utilize when your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel may be getting into a dangerous situation by 
touching something that could potentially hurt it.
Well, that's all the time that we have for today. We 
will send the next email to you tomorrow. Tomorrow,
we will discuss how to take care of the diet of your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel .
As we mentioned earlier, only a small fraction of all 
the basic commands that you need to teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 
has been mentioned in this email.
There are lots of other important basic commands like 
HEEL, TAKE, DROP, SIT, DOWN, STAY, TOY, OUCH etc. 
that have not been mentioned in this email because of space 
constraints.

your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, you can subscribe to our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lovers

to it.


Training exercise 4

How you begin feeding your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will determine how 
she expects to be fed for the rest of her life.
It is important to start off right with her feeding.
There are many commercial brands available that will 
fit the specific needs of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel according to 
her age and physical characteristics.
A common misconception among Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owners is 
believing that feeding their pets table scraps is good 
practice.
Unfortunately, this is completely false. Table scraps, 
although sometimes hard to resist feeding her, can 
cause problems.
First of all, table scraps do not consist of the 
balanced diet your pet needs which can cause 
gastro-intestinal upset.
Many owners do not realize that feeding their pet table 
scraps can encourage obnoxious behaviors such as 
begging and barking for food.
Have you ever been at someone's home and watched their 
four footed friend beg at the table? Although you may 
think this is cute, remember, that Cavalier King Charles Spaniel begs like 
that every time those people sit down to eat. Yes, 
morning, noon and night, they see their Cavalier King Charles Spaniel either 
wobbling in a begging position or barking to get bites.
If you start your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel off on the right foot when 
eating, your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will be healthier and not a 
nuisance during your dinnertime.
TYPES OF FEEDING
Scheduled feeding and free feeding are two types of 
feeding you may offer your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Both depend on 
your lifestyle and the personality and physical 
characteristics of your pet.
Scheduled feedings usually take place in the morning 
and evening and consist of measured amounts of food.
Free feeding is exactly as it sounds. You set a bowl 
full of food on the ground and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel eats 
whenever hungry.
Dogs that are on scheduled feedings are sometimes more 
easily trained than those allowed to free feed. This is 
because food can be used as a reward, where if the 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is free fed, food may not be an adequate 
reward because the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel can have it anytime she 
likes.
If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel eats excessively or is overweight, 
free feeding is probably not the best choice for your 
pet. Also, if your pet spends many hours alone during 
the day, free feeding is not a good choice. What goes 
in must come out and if your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel eats while you 
are away, she may need to eliminate prior to your 
return.
There are many brands of Cavalier King Charles Spaniel food available, and 
the most expensive brand is not necessarily the best. 
The bags or cans of food themselves will give you a 
guide on how much of that particular food you should 
feed your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel according to her weight.
You can adjust the recommended amount based on the 
amount of exercise your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel gets and the climate 
in which she lives. If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel spends the 
majority of her time in hot weather, she will not need 
the caloric intake of a cold weather Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Also, you will find that your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel may have an 
allergy to corn based foods. It may develop sores and 
scabs on its skin from excessive scratching. Once the 
corn- based food is eliminated from its diet, the sores 
go away. This is one reason many vets recommend a lamb 
and rice formula for your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Feeding Your Puppy - Puppies should be fed several 
regularly scheduled meals every day throughout the 
first three months of life. This will help prevent 
bloat. As your puppy gets older, you can reduce the 
feedings to two meals per day, morning and evening or 
offer free feeding as an alternative choice. Puppies 
require more calories and fat to grow.
Talk to your veterinarian about what type of food to 
feed your puppy through her first year of life. Many 
recommend specific brands and most recommend a food 
without a lot of additives.
Feeding Your Adult Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is considered 
an adult from about one year to six years of age. 
This time period should have a balanced diet of quality 
food, offered according to the weight of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, 
and rich in the vitamins and minerals needed to promote 
a healthy life.
Once again, consult with your veterinarian on the brand 
they would recommend for your particular breed of 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The vet should also have a medical history 
established by this time so they will also be able to 
add additional insight based on potential allergies or 
weight problems your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel may exhibit.
Feeding Your Older Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Most older pets retain 
their ability to digest the essential nutrients from 
food well into old age.
However, some older dogs do require an adjustment in 
their food intake dependent on their amount of physical 
exercise. An older Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is usually not as active 
and therefore requires a reduction in calories.
Special food, designed for the older Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is 
generally a good idea. Most of these formulas contain 
moderate levels of high quality, highly digestible 
protein as well as modified levels of polyunsaturated 
fat and vitamins B and E for better digestibility and 
health of your older pet.
Well, that's all the time that we have for today. We 
will send the next email to you tomorrow. Tomorrow,
we will discuss how to stop your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel from
barking and biting.
The tips discussed in this email should give you a good 
starting point to determine what to feed your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
However, there are lots of important diet related 
topics that have not been covered in this email.
Just to give you an example, we did not have the time 
to discuss exactly what quantities of different 
vitamins (Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K etc.) and minerals 
should be given to a puppy, adult or older Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
This is present in our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lovers Membership Site 
in the form of a chart outlining the different 
quantities of each vitamin and mineral that should be 
given to a puppy, adult or older Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
You won't find this exclusive chart anywhere else on 
the Internet - since we have ourselves developed this 
chart after years of extensive research on the best 
diet that should be given to your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
This chart is so important that we recommend that you 
hang it in your kitchen for easy reference.

Training exercise 5

Today, we'll talk about how to stop your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel from 
barking and biting. Today's discussion will be rather 
short. For more information on how to correct these and 
other behavioral problems, you can subscribe to our

STOP BARKING
If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is barking or howling when ignored, 
then it is most probably because it suffers from 
separation anxiety.
Separation anxiety usually initiates with fear and 
insecurities.
Training the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to do some tricks will help it 
gain self-esteem. You can learn about lots of different 
tricks that you can teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 
Lovers Membership Site at:
http://cavalierkingcharlesspaniel.dogtraininginstitute.com/index.php?p=m&e=6&i=249993
If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is yapping at the neighbors through 
the fence and annoying them, then behavior modification 
is the key. You can teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a reverse 
command to stop the barking, or utilize anti-bark 
collars as a deterrent.
To teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel a reverse command, it must first 
know the command "SPEAK". The SPEAK command is used to 
teach the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to bark, but only when you tell it 
to (i.e. bark on demand). More information on how to 
teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel the SPEAK command can be found at 
our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Lovers Membership Site at:
http://cavalierkingcharlesspaniel.dogtraininginstitute.com/index.php?p=m&e=6&i=249993
Once it has mastered the SPEAK command, think of 
another word to tell the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to stop barking . 
Whatever word you choose it should be one word and 
preferably one syllable if possible.
This process of first teaching your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to bark on 
demand may seem counter-intuitive when your objective 
is to make it stop barking unnecessarily, but we have 
found that it works brilliantly in reality.
Anti-bark collars come in two types - radio and herbal 
spray.
The radio collars deliver a mild shock when the 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel starts to bark. The collar has prongs that 
must touch the front of the neck of your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel so 
the vibrations of the barking trigger the shock.
The herbal spray collars work the same way, only the 
vibrations trigger a mist of pungent citrus-scented fog 
into your pet's face. The mist startles the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 
and interrupts the barking.
STOP BITING
If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has the habit of biting you or other 
members of your family, you can use some of the 
following techniques to stop it from doing so:
One good tool to utilize in teaching your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel not 
to bite is to not use toys and activities that 
encourage biting.
A perfect example of this is tug of war. Although a 
popular playtime activity for an owner and his/her 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, it encourages the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to bite leading to 
unwanted behavior problems.
Once your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is trained and fully understands the 
"Off" command, you may tug-of-war with your pet. Until 
then, it is best to put the rope away.
Another common mistake made by Cavalier King Charles Spaniel owners that 
encourages biting is rough housing. How many of us have 
either seen, or participated ourselves, in growling at 
our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and letting it grab our hands in its mouth 
during play. Then, when the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel bites too hard, we 
scold it and tell it "no bite". We are completely 
confusing our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel by doing this if it has not yet 
been trained to understand hard bites from soft bites.
If your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has a great propensity to bite when 
playing, it is a good idea to keep your hands away from 
its face when playing or petting. This will discourage 
the biting by removing the item it is trying to bite.
Never reward mouthing, snapping or grabbing types of 
behavior. An example would be playing with your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel even after it has grabbed a toy from your 
hand. In this instance, you should stop playing and 
ignore your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Continuing to play will enable it 
to think the grabbing behavior was acceptable and it 
will continue in the future. This could result in it 
later grabbing food or other items, unintentionally 
injuring someone or another animal.
Once your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has established that mouthing or 
biting is not the appropriate response in most 
instances, it is important you teach it when it IS an 
appropriate response.
Retrieving would be an example of a time that it is 
appropriate for your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to mouth or bite. You can 
teach your Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to retrieve on command. This 
enables you to offer something different for your 
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to mouth when biting by distracting it with an 
appropriate toy to bite.
Another approach to stop the unwanted biting behavior 
is to simply stop interacting with the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and 
ignore it for a period of time.
Well, that's all the time that we have for today.
