Dog Training Tips in this section will help you have the best possible relationship with your fur-baby. After all – YOU need to be the pack-leader, not your dog. Keeping control, kindly, will mean that your dog is a happy and well-adjusted member of your own family, and welcome at any social and wider family gathering.

Using calm markers to teach precision in heelwork – professional dog training

I will soon be releasing an article about the use of multiple markers in training, based on my presentation for the Art and Science of Animal Training Conference last year. https://www.artandscienceofanimaltraining.org/conference/2018-program/multiple-markers/ This is one of my videos that I showed at the conference as one of the examples of the benefits of creating markers that have different meanings to the animal. Here you can see, I am using errorless learning to proof ONLY the head position of Wish for heelwork (I have her target her feet two platforms so that I can get her back feet in perfect position. I go over this in my Weekly Puppy Insights. The reason she is on two platforms is to get her to line up her back feet perfectly so I can focus on her head position and not inadvertently reinforce her back foot movement) In the video you can see that I use the calm marker “good…” to mean stay in the position the reinforcement will come, and it predicts a calm reinforcement delivery. Then to end the behavior I use the marker “get it” meaning, stop doing the behavior and collect the reinforcement yourself.

Be patient more info is coming ☺ We appreciate reinforcement too! So don’t forget to Subscribe, Comment, Like and Share… To keep us reinforced for posting free content.

fighting dogs, What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #148

What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #148

A great question was asked during one of my Facebook Lives where we where showing how we rehab dog aggressive dogs. Someone asked if the dogs where trained to fight.
This is a common misconception and also something that most people (as in just about all people) will never experience, the chances of you ever meeting dogs that where trained to fight is slim if not going to happen. There is not many dogs out there that have been trained to fight that exists in peoples homes. A lot of olks assume hat when you have a dog, especially a bully breed dog that it was trained to fight and that is why they are aggressive. Even more misconceptions is a bully breed that has scars on its face and body, is assumed to be a bait dog, again a falsehood, most bait dogs are dead, thats sort of the job of them, and they do not make it into the system of rescue, it does make a good story for shelters and rescues to raise a good amount of money and to garner sympothy from the public.

Unfortunately it is a disservice for the dog and the new owners. There are many reasons why a dog could have marks on their face and body, most likely it is just normal wear and tear of an active lifestyle and no fur to cover up the scratches that lots of dogs get in life.

The reason why dogs are aggressive, 1) they are dogs and they are born with that behavior, 2) no one told them to not be aggressive in a way that they understand in order to stop it. both no fault of the owner, just the way the state of dog training is with all of the “never say no to your dog” ideology going on.

How to teach your dogs to line up – dog training tricks

I've seen even the most positive trainer, resort to pushing and shoving their dog into a position to get a picture of their dog when they were stressed, say after a competition or trial. I suggest teaching your dog a cue to get your dog into the position you want! This video goes over teaching your dog to line up next to you or next to another dog. Take care always when working with multiple dogs- If you are worried your dogs might feel uncomfortable around each other or you have no idea how they will act around each other with food, I suggest working with a positive reinforcement trainer at first, who will be able to read your dogs body language to make sure your dogs are comfortable.

Dog Training Results | Before and After with Hank

Hank has just completed his 5 week board and train program with us.
Hank had a habit of barking, growling, and lunging at other dogs.
He also is known to growl at the children in the family when they pet him and also will try to control them inside the house.
He will follow the children around and guard the doors they go through. Usually he will bark, growl, and scratch at the door. He nips at the children and has bitten before.
Because of training, consistency, and holding him accoutable, Hank's owners will now have a better relationship with him. He understands what is expected of him and how things will now work at home.
Hank will be advocated for so he feels comfortable and can make better choices.
We have been using the ECollar to communicate with him and his owners will use it back at home, as well. They will hold Hank accountable and keep him in a calm state of mind.
