It’s no wonder that people are totally confused about how to train
their dogs, they need only do an internet search using the key words
dog training..there are literally thousands of so-called experts
giving advice to everyday dog owners about the right way or wrong
way to train their dogs.

Trouble is most of these people have little or no experience with
actual real dogs to back up what they may have learned in a book,
or in a 3 minute video on You Tube, yet there they are steering people down the wrong path.

Then, if that’s not enough to spin your head around..

Head on down to the local post office or barber shop, and there you
will find plenty of people to give you advice about the way they
train their dogs..and as well-meaning as these people are, and
convinced, as well that they are right, sadly, most of these people
are wrong too.

I understand that sometimes our dogs behavior can be frustrating
and can very easily make you angry, even make you cry..and I can
understand the desperation that comes with having an out of control
dog,that you love, but have absolutely come to the end of your
leash.

I urge you to take a step back, don’t just take the first piece of
advice that anyone gives you and apply it to your dog, take the
time to search out a reputable trainer, or behaviorist, who has had
many years of experience dealing with dogs and their behavior and
has a proven track record of success..this might take a few days,
but no doubt the behavior that is causing you stress has been going
on for some time, so what’s a few more days to be sure to get it
right.

One more piece of advice, I always ask my clients when they tell me
that they tried some training advice and it didn’t work, from whom
did they get their advice. It surprised me how many responded that
they got the advice from their vet.

I always respond with the same thing..I ask them, You wouldn’t ask
a dog trainer to spay or neuter your dog would you..and they always
say no..to that I reply well it probably is not a good idea to ask
your vet how to teach your dog to not be aggressive to other dogs..
