When Cheech first started coming to Man’s Best Friend he was horrible! Nick has really improved his behavior and brought out the good dog in Cheech. He has come along way which we never thought was possible. Cheech has become the best dog and friend anyone could ask for. Nick has also done an outstanding job on his protection training. Cheech knows when to be protective and when to stop which is awesome. Thank you Nick and Man’s Best Friend fro doing an outstanding job!!!!
Thanks for your lovely commentary on training your pup. We eagerly awaiting getting a pup after not having one for a few years. I know there will be times of regret (why did we do this) but hopefully there will be lots of times of fun too.
This is a tough one because she obviously has a learned, deep-seated fear of crates. Forcing her into one will only make the problem worse. You can try desensitizing her by feeding her in the open crate, playing with toys in it, and seeding it with treats, but this all takes time. If she is truly distressed, then a gentle sedative from the vet is going to be the most humane option.
This mother dog is giving the photographer a direct stare – and her eyes look somewhat “hard.” Her stiff, forward-leaning posture and ears, and slightly pushed-forward lips, are warning you to stay back. She’s not aroused, just guarding her puppies. It would be wise to heed her warning.
A leash is an essential tool to use during the early days of puppy-hood to keep them safe and aid you in training. And it’s a convenient tool for control and management of your dog throughout the rest of their lives.
Another important tip (for your dog’s health more than anything) is to reduce the portions served at their regular meal times, to take into consideration the fact they have eaten treats throughout training sessions in a day.
Once you’ve assumed your role as pack leader, all you will need is consistency and the natural techniques taught by Bark Busters to reinforce and strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Bark Busters dog trainers can show you how to transform a “problem dog” into a happy lifelong buddy…
Achieving that isn’t an overnight process, but rather an iterative development in which the dog’s behavior and reliability will improve incrementally over months and years. Adopting a dog is a lifelong commitment, one that involves a huge payoff but also requires a ton of patience. Before Wiley was a dog I could utterly rely on, he was one that, if I let him, would chase other dogs unchecked and chase wild animals and their scents uncontrollably, and his curiosity put him in dangerous situations multiple times. You can’t expect to skip through those phases of development. Instead, seek to control and limit them, and use them as learning experiences both for you and the dog.
Before we move on, lets take one more look at several stages of prey drive. Each dog we see will be doing something different, but all are working in prey. If you are new to bite training this may seem complicated but hopefully we will help clear up the confusion as the video progresses.
For everyday walks and exercise, just about any leash is as good as any other, but if your dog has a certain behavior or you’re trying to train a specific skill there are particular leashes tailored to suit what you’re trying to achieve.
Molly prepares dogs and cats to transition from shelter living to family life. The dogs maintain a feeding and walking routine that will mimic their day to day life in an average household. Molly assesses each pet for signs of behavioral issues that may require reconditioning. Adopters are encouraged to reach out to her at any time after adoption should unwanted behaviors arise in the new home.
As we progress through training the dog’s view of the helper changes. Initially, in prey work, the helper is a friend that plays tug or a person that is always trying to steal the prey. Then in defensive training the dog’s view of the helper changes to a person that brings stress to his life. The helper now threatens him and is someone to be suspicious of.
Bottom line is I don’t want my dog to become discouraged, I want them to be occupied. This is where paying attention to detail pays off. It is a constant balancing act to find t he right mix for the right toy for your dog.
Christine N. said “I got a call shortly after they were aware of our experience. We received an apology, was offered a credit for our next appointment, and discussed how to improve care moving forward. We brought our dog…” read more
Use “high value” treats when needed. When teaching difficult or important a command, use a “high value” treat to raise the stakes for him. Examples include freeze-dried liver, roasted chicken breast chunks, or slices of turkey lunch meat.
When he completes the task, give him verbal encouragement, “Yes.” Then give him the treat with the other hand or a nearby surface, such as the floor. Eventually, you’ll want to only randomly provide the treat, and then stop using the treats entirely.
