Teaching your dog the canine equivalent of asking “Please?” when desiring something, can result in a huge improvement in the quality of life. For example, whenever your dog wanted something — a toy, an interaction, food, they should sit down politely and wait. What is default behavior in dogs?
Conditioned default, or automatic, behaviours can override instinctive behaviours. The default behaviour is one that the dog can fall back on when eager, frustrated, agitated, or just plain wants something that they cannot get. This behavior needs to be practiced to the point where it becomes automatic in nearly any situation.
