One of my favorite group of dogs are Hounds. I’m feeling like writing up on a few that I’d like to personally own in the future, so I’ll be sporadically writing about them in the coming post.
.
.

Can anyone name this breed?

There should be a song for children to remember, it would go like this.

We should aim for a life where our goal is to become as wonderful as our dogs think we are. Happy Easter everyone.

The majority of people contemplate training as…

The majority of people contemplate training as some kind of school, with many of them concluding that laying the ground work for a puppy is too much work for them. The error on their part is that a puppy is like a child and it makes sense to begin teaching while young, a puppy is no different.
.
.

Preparation in obedience training is essential to building maturation towards adulthood. Again, just like human beings. Time and patience while actively participating in setting correct behaviors to respond to your families needs is essential to build the final stages and that is follow through. If it isn’t done correctly your puppy will simply train itself.
.
.

Dogs young and old need to create certain behaviors to respond to an environment compatible to human beings, if not what begins as little training issues will become unacceptable. Much effort is needed on the part of humans to assist in establishing correct behavior. Don’t forget, never leave out the little things… follow through.

Have you ever hung out with someone long enoug…

Have you ever hung out with someone long enough to take on some of their habits and sayings.
.
.

Your dog will do just that as well. Let me give an example: At one point in my yard I had 10 or so working/game Pit Bulls and a large headed, very mastiffy Dogue de Bordeaux named Reno. This yard was dominated by active, high driven sport dogs. Reno on the other hand was a hard headed, slow footed mastiff that his previous owner deemed lazy.
.
.

I placed Reno in the yard to be a physical intimidator (guard dog) for anyone thinking to jump into. This large, somewhat cumbersome dog would just lay around until he saw me come out to feed when he wanted his share. A few months goes by and I begin to see Reno act differently. His body language had changed, his demeanor showed more vigor and he had lost a lot of body fat and replaced it with muscle tone.
.
.

Another couple months goes by and I began to take him to train as well as for walks through the trails with the other dogs and I noticed he over time had become one of the little guys that he was there to protect. He no longer the slow footed Mastiff but began to think of himself as one of my Pit Bulls running around like a banshee, jumping walls and trying to hang from trees.
.
.

What I had observed is the event of how a pack of dogs that are predominantly one way can sway a rogue dog to act, think, run and even eat like them. Dogs are pack animals and in the event that the pack is predominantly of a certain breed then the one dog that is not of that breed can inherit characteristics of the predominant breed.
.
.

Let’s this soak in about dogs, they spend a majority of their lives living with a family in a home. They inherit cues from each member of the household and learn to adapt to deal with them. To be a productive and happy family member, said dog must be the ball dog with one family member and the calm dog with another member to interact with the people in his home. In the end, what is being taught and how it is relayed to your dog will play a major order to how they react back.

The behavior of your dog is not much different…

The behavior of your dog is not much different than that of a human when it comes to doing something negative to gain attention. As an example, a troubled child will act out negatively to get a reaction. Dogs will too. Barking is a great example of a dog doing something negatively to gain your attention and get a reaction even if it’s not a good one.
.
.

Another example would be a dog urinating by the door that he normally leaves out of to urinate too. Being more observing of your dog’s habits, mannerisms, and movements will begin to tell you a lot of their understanding and how they communicate back.
.
.

Pay better attention to those cues while asking yourself, “what is my dog trying to tell me, instead of why is my dog doing this” will be a game changer in the relationship you share with your pet.

@dieselthebeauceron is now a bit over 4 months old now, and yeah there will be those times that your dog will still be a dog and he’s going to test you like Diesel did (for a minute) but know this…..
.
.

He’s leash broken, crate trained, housebroken and is being groomed to do some protection work at his age. Obviously he also knows where his bed/kennel is too.
.
.

Again here is where I say to all, any trainer who brings their puppy home will begin the minute they get them home. I believe in this idea and to get my clients to do the same with their pup.

“Give a man a leash and he’s a dog…

“Give a man a leash and he’s a dog trainer” Everybody knows someone or has an uncle that trains dogs but dog training is a specialized profession. A dog trainer understands dog psychology, the differences of identifying canine behaviors and how to communicate it to results. A trainer also has the knowledge and experience with different breeds and behaviors to identify which direction to go by formulating a program that will yield the best results in turn saving you time and your sanity.
.
.

On average an experienced dog trainer charges between $100 – $200 per hour. If you’re in the market for specialized training, $400 plus.
.
.

View training as an investment, chances are you’ll own your dog for many years, doesn’t it make sense that your dog is obedient rather than disobedient. View training as an education, an educated client is a better client. A good trainer will teach skills that will last beyond your current dog and you’ll be able to apply this knowledge to future dogs.
.
.

With so many variables in dog training, a trainer will have to do his due diligence in identifying what’s the best route to get your dog trained. Some variables include; how many sessions will be needed, the severity of behavioral issues, hours a client is available, and if the owner is doing their part in working with the dog when the trainer isn’t there (A good trainer will know if you’re working with them)
.
.

Scheduling is important as most clients are working during the week which limits the hours available to train as good trainers are working numerous dogs throughout the week leaving weekends and evenings available to meet (trainers have lives too) Then there’s the unexpected client drop off without reason. This is hard on most trainers as they rely on every dog they train to make money.
