As a child someone taught us how to brush our teeth, taught us out ABC’s and 123’s, drive a car, those simple things that sometimes we take for granted, play a role in our lives today.
.
.

It is no different for our dogs. We can’t expect them to understand what a SIT command is or to remember go outside and poop when it’s time if it’s never taught to them.
.
.

Dogs need to be taught everything that is expected of them. If you want your dog to be calm and respectful, then you must teach them so. If you want a great obedient dog then you must teach them to be.
.
.

Consistency and structure will help lead your dog to becoming a part of your family unit. Ignoring either will only set you back and continue to perpetuate behavioral issues.

Why is conformation so important?

.

.

The closer a dog’s appearance is to its breed standard, the better that dog’s ability will be to produce puppies that meet the standard. Also as important, “form follows function” in a sporting dogs conformation it is meant to be agile, athletic and fluid, it’s breed standard states so. Following set precedents would insure continuity.

Last week I offered followers a free dog training evaluation, all they had to do was DM a message or send me a video of their dogs and why they need help with training and/or correcting misbehaviors.

.

.

Well I finally picked and will be posting who on my next post. Stay tuned. Thank you for all who responded as you all will get a response from me with ways I can help you as well.

No two dogs are the same, and I assure you it takes time and tons of effort to achieve a well balanced trained dog but only if you’re willing to put in the time.

.

NO SHORT CUTS

.

This has become my metaphor for almost anything worth pursuing in life. In my world, in order to accomplish a well trained dog it’s not as simple as training for a few weeks and you’ll get a trained dog but as long as it takes to reach the results you seek and maintain it.

.

.

Together as a trainer, client and dog have to put in every bit of time effort and patience into each lesson. Practice, redo, and practice some more to get the result. Everyone wants a quick method or to drop off their dog at a training facility but that’s not gonna get it done. Today anyone with a leash can be called a trainer but a trainer shows results and should break down the lesson for the dog and client to understand each and every time.

.

.

Everyone is capable of getting their dog to a certain level, but it takes the right dog with the right owner and of course the right approach to attain that position. A CHOW CHOW can be an obedience ace but maybe not the best choice for a SERVICE DOG. The key to successfully training a dog is to consistently train on a specific lesson and making small changes if needed while committing to them each and everyday to make it sustainable for your lifestyle and the dogs.

.

.

I know sometimes I can make a dog look like an overnight success but the reality is the result of many years of experience and dedication that I pour into every dog. It’s also the the time, practice and the behind the scenes that we ALL, (dog included) do to get there.

.

.

In the end, nobody gives zero fucks about how you did it, they just want it. No magic tricks, leashes or collars just plain dog training and NO SHORT CUTS.

As we commemorate the 18th anniversary of 9/11, let’s honor the more than 300 dogs who helped search for survivors.

.

.

Many of the rescues dogs searching at the World Trade Centre in 2001 suffered from depression because they did not find survivors. When a SAR dog (Search and Rescue) continues to not find live people like on that day, they lose motivation and don’t feel rewarded.

.

.

The first picture is of Trakr who was driven down from Nova Scotia by his handler. He found the last known survivor from ground zero, Genelle Guzman. When his handler, Symington, was seen on TV by his department in Canada, he was suspended for leaving without permission. Trakr died in April of 09

.

.

On the second picture, Sirius is the only known K9 death. He was an explosive detection K9. He was in the South tower when the North tower was hit. His handlers last words to him were, “I think we’re in a lot of trouble. I will be back for you.” His handler locked him in his kennel before helping victims.

There’s lesson(s) to be learned if we’d only be “more like dogs”

.

.

Dogs don’t judge nor do they criticize, loyalty isn’t just a hashtag and they’re always happy to see you. Material things are something to chew on, they’re always down for whatever is going on. A dog will always take the initiative when it comes to spilled food, are amazing listeners and unlike people they’ll decrease your blood pressure.

Education and manners is the human equivalence to training and socialization for a dog. Like a person, a dog would benefit greatly when their training and socializing begins at an early age.

.

.

Any trainer would begin imprinting their puppy the minute they bring them home, so why do people wait for their puppy to get older to train? The first year of a dogs life is the equivalent of a human reaching 15 years of age. The basics that every dog should know by the first year is to be socialized so they can be around other dogs, kids and different environments and at least know the basic five words: SIT, STAY, COME, DOWN, HEEL

.

.

A disproportionate number of dogs being turned into shelters are dogs that fall into the category of having too little or no training, nor any proper socialization and this my friends is 100% the owners fault. As a pet owner, do your part to raise a functional member of your family by investing time and in most cases money towards training your dog.

.

.

Most trainers like myself would be open to help others and their dog, do the right thing and seek help as you might be surprised.

As a dog trainer, I pick up on things that the normal person doesn’t.

.

.

Next time you tell your dog to SIT, stop and pay attention to how many times you tell them until they actually do the command and then for the next couple minutes, pay attention to how many times they get up from that sit for you to re-tell them again.

Living in the moment, easy to say, hard to do but not for a dog. A dog senses time different versus humans as they live in the moment, without thoughts of the past or future. Brooding about our past or future can take away from our happiness, something a dog will not suffer from.

.

.

Although dogs remember people, lessons learned (commands) and impactful events such as the death of a family member (dogs and humans) they’re resilient and will eventually find their rhythm and be back living in the moment.

.

.

Living in the moment like our pets can help us enjoy life more fully as we shouldn’t impede our chances of being happy by fretting about the past or worrying about a future that has yet to happen. Like our dogs, we would be better off if we were to learn to engage in this practice of living in the moment.
