By DAVID STEWART Spot on DOES your dog race to the front door every time the doorbell rings? It is possible to teach them an alternative behaviour. Professional dog trainer Judy Turley, of Wamberal, said it was important to start by having your dog very close to the designated spot, which might beamatorabed. "Place a small treat on the spot and allow your dog to get it," Judy said. "Repeat this several times." Now give the dog a command, such as "Go to your spot". Again, this must be repeated several times. "The next step is to treat the dog once it has gone to the spot on command," Judy said. "Now start slowly increasing the distance between the place where you issue the command and the spot that you want the dog to go to." Then gradually increase the time that you want the dog to stay at the spot. And now the big test -- have someone ring the doorbell. "Stand near the designated spot and send the dog to that spot, then reward them when they obey," Judy said. Remember, many repetitions will be needed. But, eventually, when the dog hears the doorbell ring, it will come to mean 'Go to your spot'. Judy places a cheese treat in the spot that she wants Baillie to go to on her command.

Gradually increase the distance between the place where you issue the command, and the spot that you want your dog to go to. Repetition is vital. Baillie is a quick learner. COASTING PETS
