Turn Your Puppy Into The Perfect Dog

Puppy Into The Perfect Dog
Raising A Puppy
There's a lot of talk about how to raise the perfect dog. It's what we all want but the question is... 
do they exist? I suppose the answer is a bit like... is there a perfect person? 

Of course, the answer to that is... Nope! 

However there are some pretty great people out there, and there are some really amazing dogs too. So what’s the trick? This is my best advice. Before you get hung up about going to puppy school and learning how to do high-fives, roly-polies and the commando crawl, ask yourself this... 

Is this what my dream dog does? Is my dream dog basically a performing monkey whom I wheel out when visitors come around so they can say “Wow that’s cool, how clever is he...How did you train him to do that...” and so on and so forth. The kicker is that in many of these cases the next thing that the dog owner has to do is warn the visitors “Now...don’t go near his food bowl when he’s eating, and careful when you pat him not to go near his head, and keep the children away from his toys..!” 

 It’s crazy isn’t it? We spend so much time and effort focusing on how to do commands such as sit and stay but never even think about some of the really important stuff. And when we do it's often too late. Want to know why this is so? Because most dog trainers are stuck doing what everyone else is doing... And that’s training the sit, the down and the stay! That’s right. Its like sheep, everyone following each other and nobody asking WHY? 

Think about it... has a dog ever been put to sleep (yes, I am talking about euthanized) because they didn't do a proper sit? Or because their down command was a bit slow? Or because they had a poor stay? Of course not... nobody really cares about that stuff. Yet that’s what we all learn at puppy school! WHY?! But... Aggression? Oh Boy. More dogs are put to sleep for aggression, barking, growling, and challenging than any other reason. Aggressive to children, owners, strangers – its all bad news. 

There is nothing more dangerous than an out of control dog, pulling you along on the leash, ignoring you when you let them off. Never mind the danger to themselves around cars and other dogs. Yet so few dog trainers show you how to prevent all of this, because very few actually understand it themselves! Most people's real idea of a perfect dog, in no particular order, will include all of the following 5 important behaviors: 
  1. Calm around all other animals including dogs 
  2. Friendly to all people including children 
  3. Relaxed and obedient around the home 
  4. Amazing at coming when called at the park 
  5. A real angel when walking on the leash in public 
Hhmmm... I can hear you thinking....

You’ve got a point! Let me guess your next question... So how do we achieve it? 

Well the great news is that it's not complicated. At least it's not complicated or tricky anymore... all thanks to Doggy Dan’s The Online Dog Trainer video website Here.

How to Train a Dominant Dog

train a dominant dog
Dominant Dog
Have you ever been in the situation where you are out for a walk with your dog, happily going down the street when your heart misses a beat and then sinks because you see another dog coming?

It means only one thing. Your lovely but very dominant dog is going to try to leave their mark on yet another dog. And you've no idea how badly this could go! Even though the other dog is on a leash you know you're in trouble if they come too close, and so you start looking for an exit strategy... But before you know it your dog is pulling like crazy and the hair on their back is starting to rise. You’ve tried everything to stop this behavior. Like tugging on the leash, a different collar, distraction with food but nothing has made the slightest bit of difference.

Now it’s just a case of keeping them separated at all costs. You've started to give up all hope. So where did it all go so horribly wrong? The thing that so many dog owners and trainers don’t seem to understand is that if you’ve been giving your dog the wrong messages at home then it's too late to turn it around when you see another dog on the street. The simple fact is this...

Dogs are simple animals. And I mean that in a very loving way. But they’re simply not interested in bigger TVs, faster cars or their next holiday. Rather, dogs are about survival. First and foremost. Which includes protect the property and the pack, especially when they are outside. Now. Think about it. Dogs are pack animals. They understand there are leaders and followers. And the leaders decide what is dangerous and take the initiative protecting the pack. So what do you think happens when your dog thinks that they are the pack leader and they walk down the street and see another strange dog coming? That’s right.

They walk up to them chest-up, head-up, tail-up and try to get them to back down. And that’s when it all goes pear-shaped. But what started the reaction was giving your dog the message that they were in charge in the first place! That they're in fact the Pack Leader in your home. This is where Doggy Dan’s dog training method is so cool. He totally understands how to show dogs that you're the pack leader and the site explains how YOU can do all of that in a very simple way. Dan even offers YOU a 3 Day $1 trial of the site that you can take advantage of. But what's really impressive is that he does it in such a kind and gentle way. And its very simple, he uses 5 Golden Rules.

When you can see Doggy Dan's pack around other dogs they do not overplay their role because they all know that he is the pack leader and so can take it easy. Now of course all dogs are different and some dogs are naturally more dominant than others, and there are some who like to be more submissive. It doesn't really matter what kind your dog is. The secret is this: YOU need to be the Pack Leader. Once you establish this you will find all the other training tricks will start to work. A gentle pull on the leash, the distraction using a food treat and the gentle word of warning.

The fact is that the training approaches that you're currently using are probably really good ones but without a solid foundation they simply don’t work. Because in summary your dog is not taking any notice of you once the other dog shows up. Your dog has bigger things to worry about, like protecting followers in their pack (you). So, to turn it around... again, YOU need to become the pack leader.

Doggy Dan has given me some great training tricks that I can share that will help you achieve that calmer dog as the other dogs approach, so here are a couple.

But remember, the pack leader foundation HAS to be in place first.
  1. Food distractions : This approach can really work with some food hounds! The key is this: use it as a distraction. Do not reward your dog after they have lunged towards the oncoming dog. Use amazing food, such as chicken or cheese. Not their usual biscuits! 

  2. Take it slowly : Do not expect miracles overnight. Unless you've just put the pack leader rules in place! Often pushing things too fast will result in it going wrong, but going slowly builds confidence. 

  3. Master the walk : Make sure that you've gotten control of your dog's walking before you meet the oncoming dog. If you need to consider a device other than a flat collar to achieve this then do so.

  4. Stay focused on what you want : It’s easy to get sucked into following your dog's behavior but remember that you need to continue to show your dog exactly how you want them to behave.

  5. Be ready to step in : Stay focused on the best result but be ready to step in and quickly guide your dog away or gently tug or correct them. Once you've done this remember to relax immediately afterwards. 

    One of the things that I love about this whole method is that it works with your dog's natural instincts. For example it’s natural that one dog will be above another. You can’t take that out of dogs. But by positioning yourself as the top dog in the pack, they will not be nearly as likely to become overly protective, tense, dominant or take things too far. If you want to watch a great video of two dogs playing at being dominant and submissive then check this video out.

    If you're thinking that it's time to take control back from your dog, and become the kind and gentle pack leader that they are looking for then To get your 3 day $1 trial and take a look around this amazing site now, visit this link => Remember that trying to deal with the problem when you see the other dog approaching is always going to be too late. It’s about sorting out the real cause of the issue that will turn things around. Your dog is just waiting for you to give them the right messages!

How To Stop Your Dog From Barking

 to stop dog barking
Dogs Barking
Few things in life can drive you crazy as a constantly barking dog. Whether they have that deep shuddering “Woof, woof, woof” or that ear piercing “Yap, Yap, Yap” it can do your head in very quickly. 

The great news is that barking is not something that dogs need to do in order to be happy. In fact, generally speaking barking is a sign of stress, frustration, anxiety or over excitement and none of these emotions are particularly good for your dog. Or you! 

Remember a content, relaxed dog does not bark! 

So lets take a look at one specific type of barking and get you started on putting a stop to it... 

Dogs who bark when you are not at home is a very common issue. Usually people have no idea that they have a problem until the neighbour or even worse the dog control officer pays you a visit. Understanding why your dog is barking is the key to stopping it so you can actually address the cause of your dogs problem and not just treat the symptoms. 

Now bear with me on this one because... you MUST remember you have to see it all through your dogs eyes! 

So think of it like this... 

Your dog is a pack animal and understands that there are leaders and followers. And one of the pack leader's jobs is to protect the pack. 

So when on Monday morning everybody leaves the house to go to work and leaves the dog at home alone they become stressed... and so would you if you lost your pack! That’s the reason why they're stressed and barking. They are calling out to you to come back. They just are trying to do their job. Think about it... If you are a parent with a young 3 year old child, one of your main jobs is to keep that child safe, so you keep an eye on them. All the time. All over the house you know where they are. 

They are safe. You are relaxed. If they suddenly walk out of the house and shut the front door behind them locking you in what would you do? Chase after them? Of course... But. What if the door was locked and you couldn’t open in. And all the other doors and windows are locked. Then what would you do... Phone for help? Your dog doesn't have that option! Shout for help? Well that is exactly what your dog is doing... You certainly wouldn't sit down, relax and have a cup of tea, knowing your young child was wandering around the streets alone. Are you starting to see why your dog is stressed and barking when you leave now?

 And all those other annoying behaviors such as chewing, destruction and trying to dig under the fence, or jump over the fence that only happen when you're not around... Yep, that’s right. They are all symptoms of a stressed dog that’s desperately concerned about you not being home and safe. Remember your dog can’t speak English to tell you any of this! So what’s the solution? Well it’s almost certainly not by giving them a bone to chew on whilst you are away. Imagine saying to the parent who is totally stressed that their young child is out on the streets... 

“Don’t worry, here’s a box of chocolates”! 

You may love chocolates but it is not going to work in this situation. Toys jammed full of food and other distractions do not treat the cause of the problem either. They are only treating the symptoms and so may work, if you’re lucky, for half an hour or so – max – but not long term. Most of you will know that this doesn't work because you'll have already tried it! The solution is actually very simple. You need to become the pack leader in your dog’s eyes. Once you do this correctly your dog will not see it as their job to protect you. You will be able to come and go as you please and they will be totally relaxed. This is the real solution to having a calm relaxed dog. No tricks here, just an honest understanding. 

Now. Becoming the pack leader is not complicated. Anyone can do it, however it's not really something that I can explain in 2 minutes here. If you take a look at Doggy Dan’s website <CLICK HERE> he explains very powerfully how to establish yourself as the pack leader and stop dogs from barking when you leave them. There is even a $1 trial of the site that you can take advantage of right now. Here though are additional tips that you can use in conjunction with becoming the pack leader that will help stop your dogs barking
  1. Exercise : Exercise your dog before you leave them – a tired dog is more likely to relax 

  2. Find the right space : Try leaving your dog in different areas – some dogs will relax more outside, others inside and some prefer smaller areas such as a washroom 

  3. Fed and watered : Always leave water down and make sure that your dog is warm and fed before you leave 

  4. Pick up the bones : Leave toys around for your dog but not bones 

  5. Music and TV : Consider leaving music on for your dog or the TV – these distractions can help.

  6. Herbal remedies : There are some herbal products for dogs which can help relax them – but again they do not really treat the cause of the issue, they simply help relax them, and are also quite costly.

  7. Dog walkers : A break in the middle of the day can certainly help break up your dogs day.

  8. Leave calmly : Leave your dog calmly – whilst it's fun to get excited when you leave your dog it's better if you leave calmly. Say goodbye 5 minutes before leaving to help them stay relaxed as you go

  9. Comfort jackets : There are also jackets and shirts available that are designed to comfort them – however they are very expensive and have limited success in my experience. I even know of one dog that actually ate it!

    Unfortunately the popular idea that getting another dog is going to stop the problem is something I would stay well away from. Remember the source of your dogs issue is not boredom. After all, many dogs who bark all day when the owners leave are the same dogs who lie around the house doing nothing most of the weekend when they are at home!
    So with all that said hopefully now you have a far better understanding of your dog's problem! I would suggest if you are really serious about stopping the barking immediately then take a look at Doggy Dans site and become the pack leader. That will be the end of your issue. To take advantage of your 3 Day $1 trial and take a look around this amazing site => There is actually an entire section dedicated to stopping this sort of barking under the dog problem section "Separation Anxiety".
    It’s not hard but you have to understand your dog's problem through their eyes rather than human eyes! They do not want more bones, or biscuits shoved into a ball – what they want is a strong pack leader. So get started now, take advantage of the 3 Day $1 trial now, don’t hang around. The sooner you turn things around the sooner your neighbours will be thanking you for it!

Should You be Using Food to Train Your Dog?

using food to train your dog?
using food to train your dog

Have you ever asked yourself whether or not using food is cheating when training your dog? 

If you have, then I can promise you that you are not alone. It’s something that many people never actually get clear in their minds and yet it is one of the most powerful topics to understand and also very simple to master! What I am about to explain in this article will almost certainly surprise you but also make total sense. It will contradict some of the things that you have heard through the grapevine, but getting tips from other dog owners at the park is not always the best place to get your dog training advice from. 

Once you have read this I’m sure that both you and your dog will have a better understanding and appreciation for each other. Firstly, let’s look at the comment that you should never use food to get your dog to respond to you because your dog will then only listen to you if you have food in your hand. This is simply not true. Doggy Dan, the world famous dog trainer from, tells me his dogs listen to him whether he has food or not, yet he trained them all initially with food rewards. If you would like to take a look at Doggy Dan’s complete dog and puppy training site for $1 then you can do. 

Dan gives everyone a $1 trial of the site for 3 days! To get YOUR access now just CLICK HERE 

The reason you can start by using food is because once your dog has learnt to respond to your command without thinking about it, you simply fade the food out gradually. Fading the food out is such an important concept, and is also referred to as using ‘random rewards’. In a nutshell you simply start giving your dog the treat from inside your hand so they can’t see it. Then you slowly start to reward only every 2nd and then every 3rd time. Eventually you can space out the treats until they become random rewards. In a separate article I’ll explain how to boost your results with the random rewards and leave your dog totally focused and awaiting your next command without using up all your food too fast! So look out for that one… 

The second myth about using food is this: dogs should just be happy to work for you without any food  rewards. I have heard this said and I have noticed that it’s nearly always said by people who have not owned or trained many dogs or by people who are quite happy to use a lot of force, fear and aggression in their training. In a way, this approach was the “old school” way – that dogs should just be obedient or else. Well the way I see it is this… How long would you work for nothing? Not long I am guessing! And for many dogs that’s exactly how they see it. They get bored working so hard with absolutely no reward in return. 

Now not all dogs need food treats, some dogs are just so happy to please and with them the rewards are optional. However put very simply, dogs are all different. There are those who’ll do anything you ask with a smile on their face, and those who are always thinking about their next meal. With a dog who just wants to please there may be no need to use food rewards once they have understood what you want. On the other hand, dogs who do not care for your pats, cuddles or their ball when they are racing around the park playing with other dogs are the ones that will seriously benefit from some very tactical food training

By now you’re probably thinking that you always end up giving your dogs food treats, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! As I mentioned earlier when you understand how to fade out your food treats and use a boost-effect to maximize the use of your treats (which is another topic I’ll cover soon), you too will find your dog responding to you lightening fast every time. So next time you are out with your dog feel free to use food as a reward when they do something good and don’t worry about anybody telling you otherwise. But also remember to start to fading out the rewards over a long period of time. 

There is no rush though, and we are talking months not days! Eventually you may end up only using the food rewards every 5th time, then every 20th time… And by the way, if you’re worried about them eating too much, simply take it out of their dinner so their total amount eaten during the day stays the same. Hopefully that helps clear a few things up about the use of food. It’s always going to be the number one reward for most dogs. Soon I’ll explain how to boost the effect of using food rewards and also go into a little more about exactly which food treats will get the best results. 

Again I can promise you that this simple trick will make you smile. Of course if you are wanting a total dog training solution, reading about it can only get you so far. If you want to see it all in action, with videos then I suggest that you check out Doggy Dans complete dog and puppy training website. And remember, Dan gives you a $1 trial of the site for 3 days!

How to Stop Your Dogs Digging

dogs digging

So what’s the score with my dogs digging? I hear you asking…

Why are they doing it and how do I stop them destroying my beautiful back garden?

Well here’s the way your dog see’s it and its very different from how you think! In fact it will answer a lot of your questions.

Firstly though here’s what your dogs digging is not. Your dogs digging is not their attempt to annoy you, wind you up or simply ruin your new flower garden out of spite.

Dogs simply are not like that…(you’re thinking like a human)

Natural behavior Dogs are fun loving animals however and so many dogs will dig for fun. Younger dogs and puppies especially simply love exploring, investigating and having a good time in the soil, sand, mud, stones etc…it really doesn’t matter to them. Sometimes dogs are doing it for specific reasons, such as they are too hot and are looking to dig into the cooler ground. Alternatively they could be cold and looking to build a bit of a den. They could simply have too much energy and are trying to channel it into something in which case more exercise will certainly help.

You need to cover off all these things before you simply start blaming your dog as a naughty dog! Smelly fertilizers One of the biggest motivators for dogs digging is if you have sprinkled some sort of fertilizer such as “blood and bone” or anything that has a smelly element to it. This will drive your dog wild so be careful where you sprinkle your magic garden food.

Whilst we are on this topic be very careful with slug pellets which can be deadly for dogs. Some products on the market claim to be safe however if they do not say they are then you can assume that they are deadly and so do not use them! Now back to the digging…so once you have given your dog plenty of exercise, removed any buried bones, stopped using smelly garden products and given your dog a nice shelter to stay warm you start to ask the question…

“What now?”

Well digging like I say is a very normal activity, however excessive digging is not. In other words, most dogs dig and the secret is not to stop it but to work with your dog and manage their digging. And don’t worry I shall explain how to stop any excessive digging aswell. Digging pits If you can focus your dogs digging into one area then you are halfway there.

This can be done by creating a clear digging pit, possibly just a few pieces of wood with a couple of nails….You could even start the digging with a spade! If you put a few toys in, bury them and encourage your dog to dig in and maybe even bury a couple of tasty treats…just a couple of times you will be amazed at how quickly your dog starts to pay attention and get involved!

Once your dog understand that they are ok to dig in one area but not in the middle of the lawn you are on your way to success. Holes in the lawn But what about the holes in the lawn? I here you ask, well… he best solution for holes that have started is to put a small brick or rock at the bottom of the hole and wedge it in. Then bury it back in a pack the earth in around it. Then if your dog tries to return to dig in that area they will become stuck when they get to the rock. No fun for your dog.

Most will give up. If they continue, I would walk over to them, guide them back over to your digging pit and encourage them to dig. If they keep going back to the lawn to dig, place them in timeout somewhere. They will soon learn that they are not allowed to dig in the lawn. Digging when you are not there One of the biggest problems that people have is digging when they leave the property however the solution is quite simple. Rather than this being a excessive energy problem or a dog who loves digging problem it is a pack leader issue.

That’s right, your dog is digging most likely to try to escape the property to find you. That is why so many dogs who dig when the owner is away are digging around the base of the fence or gate. Owners will often say to me “my dog never digs when I am home, only when I am away” That’s right when you are home they relax and are happy, when you leave they try to find you.

They see it as their job to protect you and look after you. Many dogs will simply become stressed when they are left and channel their stress into digging, anywhere. Destructive behavior such as chewing is the same thing, they are simply stressed as they think that their job is to protect and look after you. Become the pack leader In a nutshell you need to become the pack leader and then they will relax when you are not around. Not only this but so many other issues will also likely disappear when your dog understands that they are not in charge.

The best site I have come across to understand how to become the pack leader is Doggy Dan’s amazing website. And believe it or not but you can actually check it out here for $1! CLICK HERE

That’s right, Dan gives you a $1 trial of the site for 3 days just so you can first see if you like it!

Quite simply it is a fantastic site and one that I fully recommend you take a look at.

Whatever your digging issue, becoming the pack leader will help your dog relax, when you are home or away and then any training that you put in place will have an effect. When it comes to dog training, if you are not the pack leader you aren’t going to achieve anything fast. So make sure that you get the order right… You need to first win your dogs mind and then you can train their body !

How to Maximize The Use of Food Treats

food treats
How to maximize the use of food treats
We all know somebody who’s got a dog that only listens when food is shown to them. Or even worse a dog who simply doesn’t listen even when treats are on offer. Maybe it's you and your dog? Sometimes it really does seem like the only way to get your dog to listen to you is to bribe them, and that just doesn’t feel right. Well the good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way and the solution certainly isn’t complicated… as you’re going to see. Here’s four very simply tricks that I’ve picked up from leading dog trainer, Doggy Dan, that make so much sense and have transformed my own way of training and motivating my dog. I’ve seen this in action so I know it all works. 

1. The Jackpot: 
The first secret is simply this… Dogs are far more motivated and excited by food rewards when the size of the reward varies. In other words it's much better to give your dog a couple of smaller treats followed by a big one than just to give small ones all the time. I know it sounds so simple and yet I can promise you that 95% of dog owners are giving their dog the same boring treat every time! That’s right, the surprise is everything! And here’s why… How many times have you been more excited when you are told that you are going to get a present than when you actually open it up and get the present! Think about it. When people play the lottery and buy a ticket the excitement builds as soon as you have your ticket… 

Then the excitement continues to increase right up to the point when the numbers are announced. Then you realize that you’ve NOT won the $24 Million Jackpot…maybe next time. Still we buy a ticket the following week. Why? Because we are holding out for the jackpot! It's the small chance that we may win something really big that keeps people buying tickets again and again. And it's the same for your dog. If you very occasionally call your dog over and give him the biggest reward of his life they will remember if for a long time. Your training will probably go onto turbo boost performance for many weeks. Doggy Dan tells a story he calls the “The story of the magic sausage” about a man who used to feed his dog off the BBQ. Not surprisingly his dog sat by it begging for food every time that it was fired up. 

The recommendation was simply this… Never feed your dog from the BBQ, but later in the day, when the BBQ is turned off and everything cleared away call your dog to you when they are not expecting it. Then as soon as they arrive out of the blue give them a whole sausage. Your dog will look at you and think…“WOW. You can produce sausages out of thin air!” The magic sausage story is a great example of using a jackpot to motivate a dog to another level. You will not need to use many to get them second guessing every time you call them if it's going to be a big treat. The result: They will be totally motivated and come running every time. Of course a whole sausage may be too much if you only have a tiny dog but you get the idea. This trick makes the use of food far more exciting, and motivating for your dog than the old “one dry biscuit, one dry biscuit, one dry biscuit” approach. 

2. What is even better to a dog than one big sausage? 

Now the second secret to using food to motivate your dog actually builds upon secret number one which is the jackpot. That's where we use a whole sausage as a reward. Now I am actually going to suggest that you make that jackpot of one whole sausage even more appealing to your dog. How could you possibly do that without giving the dog two sausages I hear you ask! The solution is this… 

Chop the sausage into a handful of nice pieces, maybe 5 or 6. Now when your dog gets the Jackpot feed them into your dogs mouth, one after another as if all their Christmas’ have come at once. Your dog will not believe their luck. To them getting 5 or 6 pieces is far more rewarding than getting one whole sausage which they probably will swallow in a couple of mouthfuls. So now you know the answer to the question what is even better to a dog than a whole sausage? Answer: A whole sausage chopped into five or six pieces… 

3. Not all food is created equal: 

Do you like Lemon Meringue pie best or Chocolate Pudding? Dogs, like people, all have their favorite food treats and if you want your dog to perform like a rock star then find out what spins their wheels! There is a huge difference in performance between a dog who’s totally motivated to win the reward compared to the same dog when they are only half semi-interested. So often that motivation is directly related to whether you are using the same dry biscuits that they ate for breakfast or some new tasting ones. But it's not just about dry biscuits! You should also think outside the square. 

For example, does your dog love a large dog biscuits with some peanut butter spread all over it, does chicken, sausage, bacon or cheese get them doing cart wheels? You could also try some of the healthy manufactured treats. Of course some of these fattier high end treats may not be especially good for your dog in large quantities, so as with our own diet the volume needs to be monitored. The flip side of this is that since these top end treats are not going to be given out very often so you can actually afford to splash out a bit. 

4. Random rewards: 

Most importantly is to keep in mind the end goal that you are going to fade the food treats out over time… until they become very random rewards. Don’t forget! So there you go. Four ways to maximize the use of food when training your dog. If you have enjoyed these then you will just love Doggy Dan's approach to dog training, especially when you actually see it all in action with his videos.
