“How can you have any pudding if you don’t eat your meat!!”

You might be wondering what a line from a song made famous by Pink Floyd has to do with training your dog.. but bear with me and let me explain.

You probably remember your Mother or Grandmother saying something like this as you were growing up..

“You can’t watch t.v. until you get your homework done.”.. or, “You can’t go play with your friends until you clean up your room.”

These are examples of the Premak Principle.. simply put this principle states that “If more desirable behaviors are made contingent upon less desirable behaviors, then the less desirable behaviors are more likely to occur.”

Learning to use this powerful principle in dog training will be very beneficial in teaching your dog to do things they may not necessarily find desirable.. like coming when called… especially if they are sniffing other dogs butts.. chasing a squirrel..

Here’s one way you can put this principle into practice to increase the likely hood of your dog coming when called no matter what the distraction..

Get a nice big piece of whatever your dog finds tasty.. like a chunk of cooked chicken, or a big slab of stinky cheese..

Put your dog on a long line of about 20 feet.. let your dog see the prize..and toss it just outside the 20 foot line.. then let your dog go.. he will run out in haste to get the food..but stop him just short of his goal.. now call him to come.. he might not listen to you as he tries to get to the food.. so just give a firm tug on the line and move quickly backward.. once your dog gets to you.. grab his collar and praise him for coming.. then let him go to get the food..

See how that works? That’s the Premak Principle in action..

You can find other areas of your daily life to practice this principle and give your dog training a power boost.. for example,..

If you are at the dog park and your dog is playing and having a ball.. call him to come to you often.. grab his collar ..give him a tasty food reward and let him go back to play.. he will quickly learn that while coming to you puts a stop to what he was doing.. it is going to be in his best interest because you always have something he really likes..and.. he gets to go back and play.. so for him.. and you.. it’s a win win situation.. and the likely hood that he will come whenever you call regardless of what’s going on will increase.. which is what you want right?

At first your dog will need to be convinced to come to you and thus the use of the lead..but with time your dog will begin to trust you and in time the lead will no longer be needed..

11188397_818078361580910_7762837488932187458_nIf your dog is barking on leash and it’s ruining your walks,.. then I have three tips that will help you get control over your vocal dog..

There are many reasons your dog will bark while out for a walk..but the main reason is because he or she hasn’t been taught otherwise.. so here are the tips that will get you back in the driving seat and on the path to enjoying your walks again with your fuzzy faced friend.

#1. You want to interrupt your dog while he is thinking about barking..not after he has started..and then redirect your dog to a more appropriate behavior..timing is everything.

#2. The closer you are to what makes your dog bark the harder it will be for you to get him or her to focus on you and your high value food rewards..so the second your dog thinks about barking..move away from what is attracting your dogs attention and work your eye contact and get a sit..

#3. Use high value food rewards like cooked chicken or cut up pieces of hot dog.. anything that your dog loves but don’t usually get..if your rewards are valuable enough to your dog it will be easier for you to get their attention and work them around the distraction…first at a distance where your dog does not react and then move slowly closer to the thing that makes your dog bark.. You want to set your dog up to succeed ..not to fail…

That’s it for today..I hope you are all enjoying this nice weather and I’ll talk to ya soon.

All the best,

10698556_709404422448305_6222598759717460874_nAfter all these years of working with people and their dogs..the one thing that still gets me every time ..and quite frankly the one reason I continue to do what I do.. is the feeling of joy I get when the dogs owner has that “light bulb” moment..

That moment when they realize what they were doing was the cause of their dogs behavior.

Today I want to speak to the dog owners who are having trouble with their dogs showing aggression to other dogs or people.. often these dogs will not want to leave your side or will hide between your legs..

get between you and other dogs or people who you interact with..

bark, lunge, and even attack and bite..

these dogs are insecure ..

they don’t believe that their owners can keep them safe so they feel they have to protect their owner who is not demonstrating calm leadership.

You can begin to turn this around by simply claiming your space.. when you are at home and your dog just walks up to you..stay calm..don’t say anything,..don’t pet them or talk to them..send them away.. move into their space and have them back up at least a couple of feet then walk away.. when they are sitting or lying calmly..then call them to you,.. have them sit and then pat them or love on them for just a few seconds..then send them away again to lie or sit outside your personal space..

This will begin to show your dog that you are a true leader worthy of their attention and they will begin to feel protected by you.. never reward excited or insecure states of mind this will only erode your dogs confidence and they will feel like they have to take control of the situation.

Only reward your dog when they are in a calm state of mind.

When you are out walking your dog and someone with a dog approaches you .. slow down…get your self calm and in charge and just move past the dogs with the authority of a leader.. if you make nothing of it neither will your dog.. if you get fearful or anxious so will your dog and he or she will feel like they need to protect you and themselves.. if your dog starts to react.. give them a command to sit.. and then follow through until they are sitting and calm .. then move forward again..

I hope this has given you somethings to consider..practice at home and remember to always guide your dog with strong leadership and a calm emotional state of mind.

If you have questions or need my help, just leave a comment, I am always happy to help.

All the best,

Harley

Today I want to talk about how you can foster peace and tranquility in your home by training your dogs to go to a place and lay down and be quiet..

Now I know many of you struggle with getting your dogs to stop barking when someone comes to the door, or passes by the window..so this is what you can do..

Put the barking on cue..

Instead of yelling “quiet!” over and over ..which in most cases won’t work because the dogs just think you are joining in.. and reinforces there must be a reason to bark..

So this is how you can do it..

Use a whistle..

If you can’t whistle with your mouth loud enough to be heard over many dogs barking..then buy a referee’s whistle.

To begin you want to “load” the whistle so it has meaning for your dogs..

Get some high value food rewards like cooked chicken, sausage, hot dogs.. what ever your dogs can’t resist.. then when things are quiet.. softly toot the whistle a couple time..and call your puppies or dogs..

” Here Puppies” in a cheerful and happy tone of voice..

The dogs come running and you throw down a handful of the tasty treats.. repeat this for a couple of weeks.. once the whistle has been “loaded” your puppies and dogs will learn that when they hear it they come running and good things happen..

Now you can put it to use when they bark at anything..instead of yelling ..which don’t work most times anyway..

Give a couple loud toots on the whistle..dogs quit barking and come see what you got for them.. give them a reward and send them to their place to lay down..

Use this method when they are in the yard..

Let’s say they are running up and down the fence barking at the neighbors cat, dog, kids..

Toot the whistle ..

Dogs come running..

In time you can fade out the rewards and replace them with life rewards and your praise..

Occasionally use food to reinforce the whistle so it maintains meaning for your dogs..

A couple more things you can do to make sure your dogs are less likely to bark uncontrollably.. is to make sure you give them daily opportunities to work out their stress and anxiety..

Go for a structured walk every day..

Head out to the back yard and play tug of war to engage their prey drive…and always let your dogs win..

That’s it for today..I hope this helps a little..have a great weekend.

10698556_709404422448305_6222598759717460874_nWhen people ask me about the importance of being your dogs Alpha I always say the same thing..it don’t matter how many times I eat before feeding my dogs, or come in the house and ignore them.. I will never be able to convince my dogs that I am a dog.

I don’t have anal glands,

I don’t have four legs, or ears that move around to catch the slightest sounds in the environment..

and I can’t smell urine from miles away..

Think about it for a minute..

If our dogs looked at us like we were a dog..then why is it that a dog aggressive dog is not aggressive toward humans?

We as humans can never be Alpha over our dogs..and the reason is as I see it..dogs can only truly pack up with their own kind..

They are able to recognize their Mother and other dogs through sight, smell, touch and sound. Simply put a dog will know another dog when they meet it..and likewise they know that when they meet humans,.. we are a different species.

We have become connected to them by thousands of years of domestication and the building of close ties..that’s it period.

In my opinion dogs see us as just another resource..that’s why an untrained dog will guard their humans with aggression..they will protect their resource at all cost.

That is why I always teach people how to control their dogs resources in order to have better control over their dogs behavior..and not just be a resource for the dog.

I feel that there is no long-term benefit to acting like an Alpha, and if you ignore your dog for long periods of time you can actually foster anxiety and confusion..

In a wild pack.. the dogs will all eat together at the same time..there is no line forming in accordance to any pack ranking structure.. if a dog or wolf gets to pushy ..they will be temporarily shunned.. and I use this in some of my training.. a short time out away from the rest of the pack has a great effect on the dog..and his pushiness is soon a thing of the past..

So for those of you that think that biting a dogs ears or rolling them onto their back and holding them until they shut down makes you the Alpha..

I am afraid you have been sold some snake oil..

You will never be able to fool your dog into thinking you are the Alpha.. it is much better to learn how to control the resources, provide structured training, and work with your dog as his partner ..this is how your dog will be convinced that you have what it takes to lead them..

I hope this has given you something to think about.. if you have any questions I would love to hear from you.

Have a great day..

dog and hunter

 

Back in the late seventies I was, as my Uncle Eldon would say,. still wet behind the ears.

I decided that I no longer wanted to train dogs in the fashion that was prescribed by my Uncle, who was the dog trainer in the family.

 

I had become disillusioned with the practice of dominance based dog training, and began to form my own way of thinking about dogs and as it turned out my philosophy was the polar opposite of what Eldon believed.

Eldon was of the old school mind-set that said if the dog did not obey, or showed aggression to family members, he needed to be taken in a notch.

Which didn’t mean Eldon injured the dogs in any way,  no, he was very careful about how he dispensed what he considered discipline,.because they were highly valued assets that required care and protection.

In his words, “ A well-trained dog that can hunt is worth his weight in gold.“

His go-to punishment for bad behavior was,  if he thought the dog was being disrespectful, or willfully disobedient, he would give it a swift kick in the ass, and give the dog the veiled threat,

“If I have to talk to you again, I am going to let the ax handle do the talking.“

I had come to realize that what Eldon saw as respect in the dogs was really fear. The dogs always obeyed but they would come to him low to the ground, ears back, tail tucked in.

I could see the stress the dogs were under, and it made me feel bad for the dogs, and frankly pissed off at Eldon.

I did not voice my concerns, because to do so would have been an exercise in futility, and to my Uncles way of seeing things, disrespectful, therefore worthy of a swift kick in the ass.

At this point I had already trained a couple of my neighbors dogs to herd cattle, and I had brought home an eight week old , female Australian Shepherd pup, who I named Tiny, and had trained her to herd the cattle, my way.

Now back in 1978 my way of training a dog was not a method that could be named, and for the next 35 years remained un-named, and I was not even thinking about dog training philosophy, methodology, or even why dogs did what they did,. I was not that deep of a thinker,.. I just let the dog be true to his temperament, and I shaped behaviors, like come, sit, down, and stay.. as they presented themselves during daily life,.. and I based all this on those times when I saw that the dogs were their happiest and most dog like.

When they were hunting or herding.

The idea struck me one evening as we readied our weapons and moved from building to building, gathering traps and the supplies we would need to spend the night in the camp we had built at the end of the trap line, some eight miles up the stream.

I suddenly noticed the dogs were much more vocal than usual, with was not unusual,  I just had never noticed it before, and then…

The thought hit me like a ton of bricks.

When my Uncle`s dogs were not working with either hunting or herding they would just lay around and never showed any what I would call enthusiasm for what was going on,.unless someone came in the driveway, or a deer would come out into the field., then they would light up like a Christmas tree.

I realized that the dogs seemed to know what we were going to do, that preparation for the hunt was happening, and they seemed to perk up in spirit, they had an anxious anticipation about them… their normally fearful nature seemed to disappear,..and they became more vocal in their attempts to communicate with us.. and it wasn’t until much later that I further realized that the dogs knew what we were going to do, even before we did.

Then the thought I had earlier suddenly solidified, and I understood.

The spirit, or heart of the dog resides in the hunt.

The next morning the dogs would be electric with energy and enthusiasm to get started.., they required a little coaxing to settle down enough to eat, and sometimes we just fed them by hand along the way.

They acted like puppies again, full of life and energy.

They would walk behind and then charge ahead searching for things to run up a tree or corner,.

They would respond to our whistles and calls, circling back, moving through the brush, and with every bound through the snow you could see the layers of stored stress melt away as they used it to organize themselves in concert with our movements,..reading us like a book.

I observed the dogs after the hunt and regardless of if it was successful or not, they seemed to be re-born, and the fear and stress that had burdened them was suddenly gone…at least for a short time.

I began to train my pups with the hunt in mind, I would take them to the woods and walk around, play with them, and  let them be dogs, games like hide and seek, find the stinky cheese, tug of war, and I always let them win, because it made them so happy to run off with that old sock tied to a rubber hose.. I never considered that I should teach them that I am the boss.

I was not their boss, I didn’t want to be.

I was the one they depended on to provide outlets for their stress, by teaching them how to hunt, and to shape their behavior with the words I used to communicate my intentions.

All this I accomplished simply by playing with my dogs in a way that spoke to their true nature as hunters.

In return they give me respect and life long trust.

I knew dogs lived in the moment, but I was missing some information that if I had know about it back then would have changed my perception about not only dogs,.. but myself.

I now know that what I was seeing in my Uncles dogs was stored emotional energy that manifests itself as stress in the dog’s body and mind, and that energy is jam-packed with information that is vital to the dog’s ability to learn, and they are only truly able to release it and connect with us when they are free to express their true nature as hunters, and work with us as team mates.

All the best,

Harley

 

Top 3 Reasons Why Little Dogs Get A Bad Reputation

crazy pomerainianI was standing in line at the cashier at one of the local malls where I live and I happened to be standing behind a lady holding a tea-cup chihuahua.

The cashier noticed the little guy and before the owner could say anything she reached out and attempted to pet the dog. Well you would have thought that lady had a crocodile in her arms. The dog took to yipping and squirming, growling and snapping.

The way it was behaving brought to mind a picture like this

crazy dog reuse

Well the lady behind the counter just sheepishly said, ” Little dogs never did like me anyway”

The dogs owner quickly apologized for Muffins’ behavior, paid for her things and left the mall. I could tell she was very upset and embarrassed by her little dogs psychotic behavior, as she was real close to crying.

It’s unfortunate but true that aggression in little dogs is not really taken very seriously, until something really bad happens, but by then..well as the old saying goes,

“No good closing the barn door after the horse gets out.”

 

Top 3 Reasons Little Dogs Get A Bad Reputation 
1- Nobody reports it when a little dog bites them.

It might be because of embarrassment especially with men. I can only imagine calling animal control and tell them that a chihuahua bit me and was mean to me. When people don’t take aggression in small dogs seriously and wait until it’s too late and the dog bites someones little kid, and the family sues, then the dog gets put down.

2- Little Dogs Get Away With Going “BOOM BOOM” In The House

As an owner of two large German Shepherds and one, 115 lb Rottweiler cross, I can say unequivocally that it would only take one time of them dumping a load, ( and I mean LOAD!), on the floor to convince me that my dogs need crate training. Little dogs get away with this for years..yes I said years, because, well,.. little dog,.. little mess,.. enough said.

3- Little Dogs That Believe They Are Big Dogs

Dogs have no grasp of the obvious.

That fact becomes frighteningly apparent with a lot of small dogs I have encountered.

Why else would a 10 pound Shih Tzu run up on a 150 lb Rottweiler and challenge him while he’s eating.

It scares the shit out of me when I see little dogs do this.

If they only knew.

Little Dogs Need Balance Too.

As with all things there are two sides to the same coin.

I have seen many dog owners happily walking their little dogs in the park, playing tug of war, and fetch the stick. I am happy that they understand that physical and mental exercise is every bit as important for little dogs as it is for large ones, and just because their dog can’t really pull on the leash hard enough to be an issue, they still take the responsibility to train their lovable little pooch to walk properly on lead.

One last word on this topic.

I have always been one to mind my own business and I never give advice unless I am asked for it., but every time I see someone carrying a little dog in their arms, I have to fight the urge to say to them, ” For the love of God, put that dog on the ground and let it use its legs.

Carrying a dog in your arms is a great way to ensure your dog will develop behavioral issues. And even the small ones can be a big pain in the you know what.

Now if you have a little dog or a big one for that matter and they are using your house as their personal bathrooms, you will want to teach them to love the crate, not only is the crate a great way to manage unwanted behavior it provides your dog with something they crave., and that is a place to call their own where they can rest and feel safe.

Maybe you already have a crate but your dog hates being in there so you don’t use it.

Teaching your dog to love the crate will take a bit of time and if you need help then I recommend you get my report on how to properly crate train your dog.

I have trained many dogs to love going in the crate and spending time.

The Anatomy Of The Hunt, How Dogs And Wolves “Feel” The Energy Of The Moment

Imagine for a moment that you are looking through a microscope at a pack of wild wolves in a meadow.

The wolves seem agitated as they snap and snarl, engaging one another in what most would call dominant/ submissive behavior.

They haven’t eaten in days.

 

The air is electric with energy, can you feel it?

Like the static electricity that is produced when you rub an air-filled balloon on the rug and then hold it next to your arm..the little hairs rise up,.. the ever so slight change in atmospheric pressure,..you feel the tickle of energy as it moves..attracted to the invisible magnet produced in the balloon.

As the intensity of the energy grows in the group of wolves to a fevered pitch..suddenly the wolf with the highest emotional charge takes off and the pack follows( Usually this would be the wolf that gets the title of Alpha)

So, now let’s imagine for a moment that we can see the color of the energy,.. and hear the sound of that energy that surrounds these wolves ..it may have started out looking light blue in color, as the pre-hunt ritual began..and has a low humming sound like the sound of your computer as it uses the energy stored in its battery.

As the energy ramps up during the pre-hunt ritual, the color and sound of this energy begins to intensify as well, and if you tried to look at this,.. in the moment phenomenon,.. in visual form,.. it might look something like this..

 

1st phase… (Energy is light blue, hums like a computer, time lapsed ..10 minutes)

 

During this time there is whining, lip licking, jostling for position, and howls of frustration. 

 

The flow of energy is moderate but the purpose is clear

<——————————————————————————->

 

________________________________________________________________________________

 

 

2nd phase.. (Energy is darker blue, hums like a remote-controlled car..time-lapse 10 mins)

 

During this time, there is aggressive behavior like biting, and the pinning down of others, as the stress from not eating and the rigors of defending territory comes to the surface, preparing them for what is coming,.characteristic of what most scientists today would call dominance and or submission.( I don’t agree with this explanation, but I will save that discussion for another day.)

 

 

 The flow of energy gains momentum and purpose as it intensifies

<================================================>

 

 

________________________________________________________________________________

 

3rd phase.. (Energy is bright blue, hums like a 25,000 watt power line.. time lapse 10 minutes)

 

During this time the intensity grows until the energy is about to explode and then without notice or command,..

 

Every wolf in the pack is emotionally charged and ready to hunt

<+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++>

 

Now let’s take our microscope and move to the valley next to a stream where a herd of Caribou have gathered to rest, graze and tend to their young.,..just a typical day in the life of the caribou.

All animals are able to feel the energy or vibrations of the environment to a greater or lesser degree, so the Caribou know the wolves are coming long before they can see or smell them.

So into this herd of Caribou the wolves trot ..but what the Caribou do is contrary to what you might think they would do..one would think that at the first inkling of the wolves approach the herd would up and run away..but they don’t ..they just lie where they are and do nothing.. their behavior suggests that they are not nervous about the wolves at all.

Why is this?

The wolves seem to not see the herd of Caribou, and take no notice of the numerous calves that have taken refuge inside the massive herd of adults.

The wolves stop and drink from the stream..

The amount of information shared between the caribou and the wolves in one single moment in time is staggering to comprehend,. this communication cannot be heard or seen, it is invisible, can’t be measured or quantified by any scientific instrument.

It is a feeling, that tells the wolves that the herd of caribou are and strong in their resolve to remain energized and grounded.. and will hold the line..they will not run.

They are not afraid of the wolves.

Suddenly.. one wolf stares off into the distance, and though if you looked where he is looking you would not see anything but trees and brush..

But remember we have our microscope..so refocus on the far distant horizon..and suddenly you will see what the wolf can’t see or smell but somehow feels a presence,.. and knows this is it..the thing that has attracted all his emotions..and draws him like a magnet..

A lone Caribou..who’s energy is vibrating in a way that tells the wolves that his energy is breaking down..emotionally speaking..

He is an old Bull who is wounded, and now the wolves have targeted him for the hunt.

To the wolves the energy they feel coming from the Caribou might look like this..

________________________________________________________________________________

The color of the energy is green but is not constant and highly charged..it wavers and shakes.. and the hum of his energy is more like a sputtering airplane engine as it crashes to the ground.

The bull’s energy is depleted from a wound and the rigors of old age..

<++++++++++>)””++++++++***—–+++ >

________________________________________________________________________________

 

The wolves rush in,.. their emotional energy weaves individual wolves into a team, each one feeling his team mates movements, energy, and intentions,.. and it is that collective mind-set that gives them the confidence to take down a prey animal that is 10 times their size and could easily defend itself against them all .

They lay down highly charged.. and stare the caribou in the eyes,.. projecting all the energy, aggression, and stress they have built up onto the caribou,.. until the bull’s energy essentially vibrates so hard that it breaks down and runs..

The wolves move in,.. like a well oiled machine,.. and kill and eat the bull.

Although in today’s society the dog has very little need or opportunity to hunt large game, yet they still practice the art of the hunt in the same manner as their ancestors the wolf,.. as is evidenced by their desire to hunt and chase prey animals, like mice, birds, squirrels, cats, and sometimes deer or moose.

Dogs communicate perfectly with the world, and with us by feeling and plugging into the energy that each living thing gives off.. and are attracted to those things that have the emotional energy that indicates they are prey animals.

So if you want to have reliable control of your dogs behavior,.. and have them be more attracted to you than anything else in their immediate moment, then it is in your best interest to develop your energy into the vibrating energy of the old wounded moose or caribou,..do this and your dog will look to you to resolve his feelings and become the happiest dog in the world.

All the best,

Harley

How To Introduce a New Puppy or Dog To The Dog(s) You Already Have

Bringing home a new dog is a highly charged and exciting time.

It doesn’t matter if you get a pup or decide to rescue a shelter dog, if you already have a dog, it’s important to manage the introductions to make sure it goes well for you and your dog(s).

If done right, this getting to know you experience can be relatively stress free for everyone.

I have rescued many dog over the years and I can tell you that it takes about 1-2 months for dogs to settle the new pecking order, and a year before you could say the dogs are now part of the same pack.

They are going to test one another, they might even have a “dust up” or two, that’s why I believe supervision and good management are key to making sure things don’t get too far out of hand.

Watch this short I made on how to introduce a new puppy or dog to the dogs you already have.

My dogs are not inclined to run hog-wild around the house.

I believe that it’s because I work hard to make myself the moose that attracts their emotions, and therefore I’m able to help them bring the fear they have accumulated just by virtue of day-to-day living, to the surface, so that it can now become useful energy.

I accomplish this through games that engage their prey drive and urge to hunt, like tug of war, and hide and go find.

Once the fear energy is under control they can use it to connect with me in a meaningful way.

For example, when we take walks through the woods, play tug of war, hide and seek, and other useful avenues of co-operation, like herding and hunting.

Some people mistakenly think this seemingly out of the blue behavior is humorous, and reinforce their dogs fear by chasing them around in a game of sorts,.. thus bringing that initially invisible threat that set them off in the first place,.. into reality.

For most people this is something they will regret doing later on.

Even though my dogs don’ t behave in this hectic, bouncing off the walls way..I have rescued a few dogs that did.

I always thought it was about the stress and confusion of the new environment, memories of past life experiences, and having to deal with my dogs exuberant social behavior.

I was aware of the “fear factor”, because I observed the way they hauled their buts in low to the ground when they ran in random zig- zagging geometric patterns, as if to protect it from getting bitten by what ever was chasing them in their mind.

I gave it very little thought because after a few days of bonding, ie,  walks in the woods, and playing games designed to engage prey drive.

The crazy hog-wild running around just disappeared.

There is only one down side to my dogs not running hog-wild around the house..I don’t have a video to show you..but thankfully there is YouTube.

I found this short video that shows the behavior I am talking about..and you will see the person with the camera is under the false impression that this is funny, and inadvertently reinforces the dogs fear by chasing him around trying to film the action.

This person doesn’t understand that the dog is trying to connect with him, but don’t know how.

If you have questions about this post or anything that is on your mind , I would love to hear from you, leaving a comment here is a good place to start.

All the best,

Harley
