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.

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.

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.

As we know all dogs will sit at one point or another, the issue becomes getting our dogs to sit when we ask them to. This is the core of dog obedience training and I cover this in this video.

In this video I’ll teach you my favorite method to recall a dog, the PREY RECALL. Using a toy and controlling your dog’s play will give you a solid recall.
Also covered in this video is “capping your dog’s drives.” A short point on controlling your dog and his drives.

Everyone wants to know, “What are the most important things that all dogs should know?” Well in this video I address these dog training basics.
The COME command, the STAY command and the LEAVE IT command. Understanding these three basics to dog training is the key. From here your dog can learn much more, but without this, there is no sense moving on, these are the basics.
