SOLVED: Jumping, pulling on leash, not coming when called
Went for a walk with my pups this morning
and all I can say is, “IT’S COLD!”
December mornings here in chilly Western
Massachusetts are not fun. Maybe I’ll take
my Mom’s advice and go visit her in sunny
south Florida soon.
Won’t she be surprised when I show up with
Jimmy, my German Shepherd, Izzy, my pitbull
and Martini, the maltipoo – haha!
Anyway, as I was walking around this morning, I
thought back to when I used to do K-9 patrol
I used to work 8 to 9 hours outside with my
partner Jocko, a long haired German Shepherd
who never seemed to mind the temperature.
Back then I started giving it some thought
to becoming a full time dog trainer. The
thought of working all day long in a nice,
heated room working with dogs seemed nice.
What I didn’t know was that becoming a dog
trainer was like entering a life in politics.
Dog trainers are very opinionated about the
right way and wrong way to train dogs.
Spend some time on the Internet or watching
some of the popular dog training TV shows
and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
One trainers says to use a choke collar, the
next says to never use a choke collar, never
use a treat, always use treats, and on and on.
The problem for the new dog owner is that they
become confused, frustrated and in some cases
I know, I have talked to thousands of dog owners
over the past 20 years.
It’s one of the reasons I have put up so many
videos on YouTube and articles on the Internet.
It’s also the reason I developed the Dog Training
Inner Circle. I wanted a place where people could
go and get quality information and a place where
you can go and ask your questions.
The forum has over 1700 pages of questions asked
and answered. The forum is a dog training encyclopedia
all by itself!
Add to this, The Good K9 Manners course, The Housetraining
Handbook, monthly video seminars, breed of the month
profiles and your dog training and behavior problems are
If this is the kind of information you’d like to get
your hands on…now you can.
All the best,
P.S. You’ll be amazed at how simple and easy it is to apply
all of the dog training techniques.
