In Dog Training, often dog trainers focus on treats. While I understand this approach, I do not use this technique myself (don't get me wrong, even I have moments where a treat is a must to entice a dog to come, go to kennel, or a number of other beginning instances). While Dog Training, dog treats are not always available. Dogs can and will react to praise, during any Dog training you are doing. Praise training as a Dog Training tool is a constant that can work for virtually any dog. When Dog training, Dogs love something? Dogs are entertained and love to be loved.

Dogs are Family

Ever wonder why typically farm dogs and hunting dogs seem so well behaved? They are taught to respect and are loved for what they are. They are given direct commands and are expected to obey those. Farm Dogs and Hunting dogs alike are treated as dogs, treated like they were meant to be and furthermore they are given all the exercise and stimulation they need. These same basic rules and principals apply to our Family Dogs. Treat them as they want to be treated, love them, earn their respect and loyalty and you will have a true FAMILY MEMBER in your dog. This works for all dogs, small, big, medium or in-between. Dogs are meant to become family! They are also Dogs, and expect to stay dogs, they are not people. Treat them this way and you will be amazed at the results. If youre having issues with your Dog Training, or your techniques, we would love to help.
