To build a really great relationship with your dog it's important to catch him getting it right. We get so caught up in making sure they know what they are doing wrong that we barely acknowledge them when they get it right! We don't need to intimidate and dominate our dogs. We need to be a team with them, stop blaming them and start teaching them, stop yelling at them and start listening to them. Here is a great article by Pat Miller from the Whole Dog Journal that is definitely worth the read. I am a crossover trainer (explained towards the end of the article). It's great to be on the positive reinforcement side of my training career! https://www.whole-dog-journal.com/issues/14_12/features/Alpha-Dogs_20416-1.html

A perfect digging pit. Hide toys and dog biscuits in the sand when they aren't looking...then watch your dog find them! They'd rather dig here than in the yard cuz they are finding stuff! Great Idea!! Get tent HERE >> http://amzn.to/2pRaIeD

I love my job! I learn something everyday from the dogs and from their humans. I started working on a case last week with what I thought was a clear case of a fearful, worried , nervous dog that was acting out, out of stress. Today we met again, and the owner felt certain that I was missing the root of the problem. I started to speak from my ego, defensive and almost spoke about how I know what I'm doing and that she hired me to do what I do and then...I heard the slightest of voices within say...:Listen!" So I did. I reassessed the case with the owners points in mind, tried a couple different training techniques completely different from where I was originally going and Voila! A new treatment plan that aligns with the owners thoughts and the dogs needs. The session today was beautiful! Sometimes I forget that the owners ALWAYS know there dogs better than I ever will and I have to allow them to interject their thoughts and ideas. I am never knowing everything.....always learning...(dang it! LOL!)

We play, we work, we play, we work! Setting up a great beginning in teaching pups to focus on their owners even when other dogs are around. Organized chaos!

We had a blast with a full class of puppies yesterday. It will forever be known as my "wackadoodle" class. We had goldendoodles, labradoodles, a berniedoodle, a standard poodle...good gravy! To help balance things out we had a black German Shepherd and blue Staffordshire terrier. Great puppies, great owners! On to basic obedience!
