Here are three ways to get your Tibetan Mastiff to bark:
Method 1:Use food to lure the mastiff to bark.
The mastiff owner commands the mastiff to sit, steps on the end of the leash or ties it to another solid object, and gives out codes and hand signals while teasing with food in front of the mastiff. Due to food stimulation, the mastiff may bark, but if it cannot eat the food. In the early stages of training, the mastiff should be rewarded with food as soon as it barks, which is more effective for mastiffs where the food response is dominant. As training progresses, food should be gradually reduced until it is eliminated, causing the mastiff to bark according to codes and hand signals.
Method 2:Use the mastiff’s active defense response to elicit barking.
After the mastiff owner brings the mastiff to him, the helper slowly approaches the mastiff from a distance and makes enough movements to attract the mastiff’s attention to tease the mastiff. At this point, the mastiff owner’s right hand points to the assistant teacher and gives the barking code. When the mastiff can bark or bark, a good code and a pat reward should be used immediately. The assistant teacher takes the opportunity to stop teasing or hiding by rewarding the mastiff owner. In this way, after several training sessions, the basic conditioned reflex of barking can be formed, and gradually reduce and eliminate the teasing of future helpers. Tibetan mastiff barking can only be elicited by hand signals and codes. This method is more effective for mastiffs in which the active defense response is dominant, but it should not be overused so that the mastiff does not form a bad association with barking! >
Method 3: Using the mastiff’s attachment to elicit barking.
Take the mastiff to a strange and quiet place, tied under a solid object, the mastiff owner tries to cause excitement in the mastiff, then immediately leave the mastiff to a certain distance, turn around and call the mastiff’s name, make barking codes and hand signals, the mastiff will bark excitedly because it sees the mastiff owner walk away and call its name; at this point, the mastiff owner should immediately run to the mastiff, give pats and food rewards, then let the mastiff wander.
In fact, in addition to the above methods, you can train the mastiff’s free reflex of excitement and desire to give up on food before each feeding or walk. You can also use imitation to seize all opportunities for the mastiff to bark spontaneously and build conditioned reflexes!
