Vizsla Training – Use The Right Body Language So Your Vizsla Understands Mark Mendoza
Vizsla Training • Vizslas are highly intelligent creatures and many dog owners do not give them enough credit when it comes to the way they can read and understand our body language. • Some people have no idea that the body language that we display has a major impact on how well a vizsla will listen to us and obey our commands. • Using the correct form of body language can also quickly stop your vizsla from displaying an improper behavior.
Vizsla Training • Let's use a very common example, such as the overexcited vizsla who likes to jump on every guest that comes to your door. • We all go through this with our puppy or adult vizsla at some point in time. • As soon as the guests arrive your vizsla is overwhelmed with happiness and excitement about who is at the door and whether or not they are going to play with him.
Vizsla Training • Do they have vizsla treats? • What do they smell like? • Do they want to play? • How about I just jump all over them and see? • This is exactly what your vizsla is thinking if we were to decipher his emotional behavior.
Vizsla Training • And meanwhile, you are giving every command possible to get your vizsla to stop being so excited and jumping on everyone. • You try shouting but it only makes him more excited. You try giving harsh and loud "Off" commands but it's not working. • Eventually, you are so stressed with yelling and trying to pull your vizsla off that it turns into one big chaotic party.
Vizsla Training • And yes, the term "party" is a great way to explain it because to your vizsla you are just joining in on the fun and excitement that he is feeling. • Can you see now how your body language and the way you are communicating with her voice comes across to your vizsla? You are only adding to the situation as opposed to changing our vizsla's behavior.
Vizsla Training • Communicate better with your vizsla by using the following body language tips:
Vizsla Training • In the above example of the overexcited vizsla who can't seem to stop jumping all over the house guests, you understand now that your body language and excitability only made your vizsla feel more enthused about what it is he was doing. • Therefore, you must take a different approach to the situation, regardless of what action you are trying to communicate with your vizsla. Below are a few basic body language tips that you can use:
Vizsla Training • 1. When you're angry at your puppy or adult vizsla, do not chase him around the house. You may be upset with them, but to your puppy, he thinks you're playing a game and he will run around forever. • 2. When you give your vizsla a command, display a very bold and upright body position. Stand up, chest forward, and head back. Your vizsla will have more respect and a slight bit of intimidation, which can help with training him.
Vizsla Training • 3. If your vizsla is extremely excited then do not add to the problem by getting feisty. Instead, move slowly and talk in a soothing tone of voice. Display the same behavior you wish him to use. Doing so will calm him down and it will be much easier to change his behavior.
