In this video (filmed during a Bound Angels University training) I discuss the flaw of using positive only training and how it fails dogs who are in escalated prey drive and aggression drives. It is the drives that is the focus. The result of the drive can lead to aggression or just plain disobedience.
There are countless dog trainers who will lie and say that aggressive dogs can be retrained using positive only methods, but they are selling you a bill of goods. I have worked with countless aggressive dogs in animal shelters nationwide as well as protection dogs and personal dogs. Positive only training is limited in what it will do for certain dogs.
The primal defensive drive of a dog will never be trained with positive only dog training. That is not to say I don’t believe in positive training or reward based training – in fact I love it… But it has its place and if we are to be fair to dogs we must understand what the dog needs, not what feels good to us.
This lecture should shed a lot of light on the topic. It covers much of the dog’s drives and talks about using positive reinforcements in obedience and the need for fair corrections on dogs for being disobedient.

It is primarily used in competitive dog sports, but its a fun thing to teach your dog.
I think teaching your dog all the time and introducing new things to your dog is the best way to keep your dog engaged to you and sharp on learning new things. SO… just for fun, here’s the DOWN in MOTION.

Views:6844|Rating:4.91|View Time:13:37Minutes|Likes:461|Dislikes:8 The stand command is perhaps the most difficult to teach your dog because it seems un-natural to both the dog and people. If your dog is STANDing, he should be doing something or going somewhere, right?
Well if you are interested in competitive obedience, your dog will need to learn to stand on command and STAY there.
I address this in this video. I break down how to shape and reinforce the technique and how to proof it. I’ve had many requests for this video, so here it is.
Remember, teaching anything new to your dog takes time. Be very patient with your dog and give him or her a chance to learn and make it fun. Short – fun sessions are the best way to train any dog.

If one of the dogs is taken away from the other and they remaining dog freaks out, you have an issue that you’ll want to work on fixing.
In this video I talk about 2 german shepherds who have a hard time being separated.

Who should your dog meet and who should they avoid? I give a brief talk to get you some basic information on getting your dog socialized with people. This is a lecture format video without dog demonstrations, one you should definitely watch!
All dogs must be socialized if at all possible… its best to do this with young puppies, but even in later months – it is critical for a well balanced dog that the puppy be socialized.

Using a simple YES and NO training exercise, dogs can be taught basic commands as well as complex behaviors. Using clear communication with your dog through luring and shaping will develop solid obedience, quick sits and downs durations in obedience.

The breakaway collar is your best bet for safety if you must leave a collar on your dog. It is recommended that any dog left with another dog should wear a breakaway collar. Choke chains or even flat collars or buckle collars can strangulate a dog if it gets caught on something.

It teaches a dog something very un-natural, going away from you. Later we can develop this to a send away, or a go to your bed command. It is very useful and fun to teach.
Teaching your puppy a PLACE command also gives him a safe place to go to chill out or when asked to “go to your place.” It is a foundational step in dog training.

If the dog barking at you gets a reaction out of you, whether that is negative or positive, the dog will learn to take advantage of you and you might never solve this problem. So how do you handle a dog barking at you whether he is in a crate or not? Simple, watch this video.
