Mix up the schedule.

Option one. Change everything at once.

Option two. Change one thing at a time.

 

I don’t want dogs to be stressed and changing everything can be stressful. On the other hand, changing everything at once will cause Molly to learn how things work from scratch.

 

Do next activity BEFORE molly barks.

 

I think, Molly thinks the sequence for getting what she wants is:

  • Want something

  • Be quiet

  • Humans start new thing.

 

We want to change that to:

  • Be relaxed

  • Humans start new thing.

 

Tips:

Start next thing before dogs think of it.

Wake them up to start new thing.

Call them inside to do next thing before they are ready.

Start next thing in different order.
