Step 3: Give the Time-out


Time your dog out immediately by putting them on a leash, or in their time-out area (crate, bathroom, ex-pen area), or you can simply leave the room and shut the door behind you for 10-30 seconds. Leaving the room is just as effective and sometimes faster that trying to catch your dog to put them in a time-out area. 

The key to this working is consistency. That means every time you use the time-out signal, you must give your dog the time-out.
