Everything was so wrong but at the same time things were so right.
.
.

From a BEWARE OF DOG sign (don’t use that sign today, I explained in a post before as to why) to wearing my JORDAN 95’s (for dog training Steve?) to that shaggy fro on top of my head (no I don’t wish I had hair)
.
.

Yet I was training my own dogs and having fun, living across the street from Bell Sales (corner of King & Vermont) wearing my Blue Dickies and the best thing of this picture, hanging with my dog HAMMER.

The calm before the storm….
.

Stella (4 month old) is the forth (4th) dog I’ve trained for this client. Already started foundation bite work, obedience and of course she’s housebroken while we waited for her ears to heal. We’re 2 months into training…..
.

It all comes down to setting a plan and following through.

Team work: a principal point when it comes to a dog and his owner. The human is the point and the dog is the partner. When I first met Ozzie after evaluating him I realized what his issues were. I was surprised at how much better than I initially thought his obedience was but there was a bigger issues looming. He had been through several other trainers before coming to me and so I was bemused to see that they didn’t identify it either.
.
.

The issue I noticed was that Ozzie and his owner wasn’t a cohesive team which is one of the key principals to dog training. I’ll explain and give an example. What is an AUTOMATIC SIT? When walking with your dog and when you come to a STOP, your dog should automatically SIT on every stop!
.
.

Here’s the thing, when in a walk you stop 10 times and your dog only comes to a sit on 5 of those occasions and the other 5 times he doesn’t sit but you don’t correct timely or at all, what your dog will not be doing is an AUTOMATIC SIT. When you’re not consistent and connected with your dog, listening and following through is not what he’s going to do. It’s as if Ozzie is a gambler and is willing to gamble the odds of his owner correcting him on every time he doesn’t SIT on a stop.
.
.

So back to Ozzie, I’m working with his owner to understand and READ her dog better as well as to be consistent on every call she does with him. Because of this, she’s improved tenfold in getting better and more confident with him.
.
.

Here he is doing off leash work, we’ll call him VELCRO dog….. @ozzietheshepherd

whч dσgs hσwl?
.
.

Howling is a normal behavior, sharing with it’s ancestral background of the wolf.
.
.

A dog will commonly howl when the persistent sounds of a siren is heard.
Howling will also occur when a dog is feeling territorial or stressed out. More than likely a dog would howl to alert to other dogs that they’re getting close to their territory or signal them to leave. I’ve witnessed dogs howling after a few minutes of their owners leaving, it’s like their saying “come back home already”
.
.

In the end maybe your dog likes to hear themselves howl, just as some of us like singing in the shower 🚿

Your dog is a living, breathing animal with feelings and emotions rolled up into four legs. Nobody’s PERFECT especially a dog learning a new word, behavior or command.
.
.

A puppy and/or a grown dog learning a new such should be given space to make mistakes. It’s about teaching and adjusting until the dog gets it and becomes consistent with the word and operation of it.
.
.

Life’s not perfect, you’re not perfect and your dogs not perfect. Stop wasting time in hoping for perfection and just train them to do it natural.

A common question I get “WHAT METHOD DO YOU USE FOR YOUR TRAINING?”
.
.

I don’t really like this question as some trainers actually believe that the methods they were taught in is the only method available to train a dog and they should only be trained within those methods.
.
.

My rebuttal is If you train ten (10) dogs the same way nine (9) dogs wouldn’t be trained right. Every dog is different, you can begin with a different breed, is it a male versus a female, age of when you begin training, owners having different ideas of how to raise the puppy, and of course personalities, etc.
.
.

When we look at it that way, a trainer must adjust and adapt to each dog and do what’s best and responsible to attain the best results, and that’s definitely not using the one method that a trainer knows but various methods to get there.

28 years of experience in the dog business and I’ve yet to meet a (perfect) dog or person. When your dog makes a mistake, stop and teach them so they learn from it.
.
.

When we don’t show them what’s right and over look the mistake, we are at fault for procrastinating as well as sending the wrong signal to your dog that making mistakes has no consequences.
.
.

We all (dogs and humans) make mistakes. That’s life. It’s how we handle those mistakes is what’s important. All we can do is turn them into learning experiences and use them to grow.
.
.

Dogs will make mistakes, but his owner will do more.

Flashback Friday with @jager_the_malinois . ….

Flashback Friday with @jager_the_malinois
.
.

Any trainer bringing home a puppy will begin socializing, conditioning and training the minute they touch home. So why do trainers tell you to begin training when the puppy is closer to six (6) month of age?
.
.


One of the answer is most trainers don’t want to deal with puppies from a young age as it’s a lot of work to guide the puppy and owner for months. I’ve worked with trainers who were taught from schools that teach DOG TRAINING and they’re verbiage is that by 6 months old the possibility that it will develop bad habits and behavioral issues in that time span are higher and it’s good for business as they can charge more for work that has to be undone.
.

Being that it’s #flashbackfriday I’m posting a few pics of jager beginning with the puppy tug in bite work and where he is today. Follow his page to see our adventures.
