To teach the dog not to touch you, you start with a piece of hot dog in your
left hand. Place your hand close to the dog's nose in order to tempt the
dog to try to get the hot dog. The dog will lick and grab with its mouth and
maybe even paw at your hand. Just keep your hand closed in a tight fist and
do not let the dog succeed in getting the piece of hot dog. The moment the
dog comes away from your hand, BRIDGE [say Here] or Click and REWARD. That
is, give the dog the piece of hot dog. Continue this training until the dog
does not ever try to touch your hand. The dog will get to the point that it
will look at your hand and turn its head away. The moment the dog looks away,
BRIDGE and REWARD.
After several days of success [the dog does not even try to get the hot dog]
you add the CUE to the behavior. You tell the dog "Don't touch me" each
time you thrust your hand forward with a piece of hot dog in it. This movement
of your hand being thrust forward becomes a hand signal to the dog not to
touch you. Whenever the dog approaches you, you thrust your hand forward and
give the appropriate cue. Don't touch me!
This can be transferred to any object your humans want to teach you not to
touch. It takes a while for you to learn it but they will love you once you
have mastered the technique.
Also tell your humans to get a crate in the vehicle and put you in it so you
don't get to jump out. If they toss a piece of hot dog into the crate to get
you to go into it, you will give them enough time to close the door before
you can turn around and get out again.
