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!

I'm going to be a bit redundant here but the information in this video is SOOOO important when raising a puppy that I am posting it again. The opportunity for socialization is a very slim window and you really need to get it right because there is no turning the clock back. Post your puppies worldly experiences and let us know what worked and what backfired and how you fixed it! Inquiring minds want to know! https://www.facebook.com/ThatDogGeek/videos/1866965343530923/ Did you know that puppies have a critical socialisation period that only lasts until they are around four months old? Watch this video to learn what socialisation is, why it is so important, and how to use it to give your puppy the best start in life. Like That Dog Geek for more videos and graphics on dog training and behaviour. Subscribe to us on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/c/ThatDogGeekTraining NOTE: For those of you asking about older dogs that are already fearful, it is most certainly possible to improve their confidence! It is a much more complicated and often time consuming process than puppy socialisation (hence why socialisation is so important) but it can definitely be done. One of the topics of my upcoming videos will be helping fearful dogs.
