Have you ever experienced the frustration of your dog seemingly ignoring your commands when they’re excited? You’re not alone. Many dog owners find themselves in this situation, wondering why their furry friend suddenly becomes unresponsive in the midst of excitement. In this article, we’ll explore the reasons behind this behaviour and offer solutions to help you regain control. Plus, we’ll introduce you to our online webinar that will revolutionise your approach to recall training and off-leash reliability.

Understanding the Ignoring Behaviour

When dogs become excited, their adrenaline levels rise, leading to a state of heightened arousal. In this state, their attention span decreases, making it challenging for them to focus on commands. Additionally, excitement can override their training, causing them to prioritise the source of their excitement over obedience.

Common Factors That Contribute To Dogs Not Listening To Cues

Several factors can contribute to your dog ignoring commands when excited. Lack of training in high-distraction environments, inconsistent reinforcement of commands, and insufficient mental and physical exercise can all play a role in this behaviour. Furthermore, certain breeds, such as high-energy or prey-driven dogs, may be more prone to excitement-induced disobedience.

Strategies for Success To Improve Your Dog’s Listening Skills When They Get Excited

Fortunately, there are several strategies you can employ to address this issue and improve your dog’s responsiveness. Consistent training in gradually increasing levels of distraction, reinforcing commands with high-value rewards, and incorporating mental and physical stimulation into their daily routine can all help reduce excitement-induced disobedience.
