Give immediate praise. When the dog’s stomach is on the ground, lavish him with praise and give him the treat or toy. Be accurate with your praise, too. If you praise him halfway down or up, that is the behavior you will get.

To do this, perhaps invite friend to come and visit. Have the friend bring along a dog toy, and when the dog looks in their direction, click, use the cue word ‘play’ and reward. This gives him the signal its OK to keep approaching.
I’ve never been more pleased with the one on one hands on training that Brent teaches for Ace Dog Training. What people don’t understand is you have to train yourself in order to continuously teach your dog basic commands and other serious training and that’s what he teaches in all courses. I have not been disappointed with the outcome. He works with all sorts of different dogs. So I highly recommend contacting him and reasonable prices too!!!
Find a dog that is the right age. It can be difficult to know if a puppy under the age of 6 months has the right blend of intelligence and attention to make a good service dog. Charity’s that train up service dogs, have a high ‘drop out’ rate, even when they have used their knowledge to select likely candidates.
This is a book that gives you a system that professional trainers use to ensure that your chaotic four-legged friend is soon the most perfectly behaved good boy you’ve ever known. All you need to know is the secrets.

Another proven method to help stop your dog from barking for attention is to simply ignore your dog. Your dog will no doubt become frustrated and bark a whole lot initially, but once he realizes that it is not getting him anywhere, he will stop. Warning – this training method can be hard on the ears for a while! Remember that a dog’s behavior that is not rewarded and reinforced will become less prevalent.

The main thing to remember when socializing older or adult dogs is to be positive and to make each new experience a good one with praise and treats. Corrections do not work well here and will likely will create a more nervous dog. In time, your new companion will become at ease at home and in public and will truly be a member of the family.
For a new puppy, a crate helps with housebreaking and provides a safe den for sleeping. When your puppy is used to his crate, it will be easy to take him visiting, or for trips in the car, or to the vet. When we watch TV, we sit in our favorite chairs and our dog Buffy chooses to lie down in her crate, watching the same shows we watch (well, sort of!).
Bear in mind that the “come” command isn’t always the best option when you want your dog by your side. For instance, if you haven’t fully trained your dog to understand what you want when you say “come,” don’t use that command and expect results. It’s better to go and get them than to say “come” repeatedly.
Dogs have excellent hearing — far better than ours. A fun twist on this command is to see how quietly you can whisper and have your dog respond. People will think you are the “dog whisperer” when you can get him to perform commands with hardly a whisper.
I produce wrap around leashes for those that want a leash that they can clip around their waist and not worry about dropping it while using a wheelchair, or other mobility device. Go here for information on the leashes as well as pricing.
We are so pleased with Brent & Ace Dog Training! We left Boomer, our 2 yr old rescued boxer mix, with Brent for 2 weeks for his train & board program. When he picked up him up on day 1, Boomer was unpredictable off-leash and very reactive to other dogs. We hoped that Brent could help with those issues, as we had tried everything we knew how to do. But sometimes you just need a professional, and if so, Brent is your guy! During the 2 weeks, he emailed us updates and videos of Boomer’s progress. His communication made us feel encouraged and at ease. It was clear that even after the first few days, he was making progress! When Brent brought him back to us after the 2 weeks, we could see a visible shift in our typically high-strung, on-alert rescue. He seemed calmer, happier, and more well-adjusted. Far less reactive to other dogs, and reliable off-leash. It was incredible! Brent also gave us all the details, instructions, and tools we need to continue Boomer’s training. We’ve already met for a follow-up training session to keep working on his skills off-leash while other dogs are around.
Documenting the training process, public access test, and registering with a reputable service like the United States Service Dog Registry will help ensure canine competency and any future situation where your dog (or you) might be questioned.

Private training can address problem behaviors, teach basic obedience issues, help you adjust to a new dog in your home or to prepare for the arrival of a new baby or introducing a dog to children or to another dog already in your home. Private sessions can be used in conjunction with group classes to train your dog for specific issues and for socialization and general obedience issues. Typical common dog behavior problems can be addressed in one or two private sessions. This depends of course on specific issues, and how much time the owner invests in the follow-up plan. No two dogs, owners and environments are the same, so for each private session, a custom plan is determined to meet the customer’s needs and goals.
