Obedience Dog Training
Traditional Dog Training
On a general standard, if a dog misbehaves, dog trainers usually make the dog sit, refocus attention on the human, and then the dog gets a treat. If so many trainers agree on this same technique, then why is it that even though the dog has been to trainer after trainer, the bad behavior insists? Dog owners come to me at their breaking point.
When I begin to rehabilitate dogs that have been through numerous trainers and still are having a problem, I almost always see dogs sitting when I am asking the dog to stop a behavior I don’t like. The problem with this is that the dog never understands exactly what the problem is. Animals need to understand from the animal point of view. Thats where I come in.
Many animal behaviorist will not work with your dog unless your dog is on an anti-depressant or relaxer, but I believe dog training is for people not dogs. My feeling is, if you structure your relationship from an animal point of view they will learn a lot quicker. By doing this, you can prevent more serious issues like dog aggression, people aggression, separation anxiety and much more.
My philosophy is the same for working with aggressive dogs or dogs that don’t have any aggressive issues. We think our dog understands the human experience, so, we put our human belief system onto our animals which causes confusion. When you’re on the same page as your dog, trust and respect comes second nature.
All of these behaviors, and more, can be obtained easily before the issue becomes a more severe problem;
COME on command
WALK next to you without PULLING on the leash
STAY in one place
Eliminate AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR (One bite, in many states, can mean the end of your dog!)
QUIETS on command
Stay OFF the furniture
Stop PLAY BITING
Stop NUISANCE BARKING
Stop MOUNTING other dogs OR people
Stop Human AGGRESSION
Stop Resource GUARDING
Stop Fence FIGHTING
Stop Dog-to-Dog AGGRESSION
Eliminate Severe FEAR ISSUES
Stop REACTIVITY On-Leash
