Dog Training and the Recall

First tip, never call your dog to give them a growling!
They will associate you with a negative situation and why should they ever want to come to you…

Then, with the walk, you should be ‘dictating’ where you are going, what you are up to etc. [Read More…]

The ‘Dog Training Photo’

‘You can’t have your cake and eat it too!’
With dog training, you cannot pick and choose what you do off a Behavioural Modification Plan.
Training your dog is like looking at a landscape shot, not a portrait - encompassing your dog and his or her environment.
Your dog needs to look at all the information in his or her training photo/picture for it to make real sense to them.
This is also for you to get the results you desire :-)
