Brent is an amazing trainer with extensive knowledge and understanding of dog behavior. My dog Roscoe was and is fearful, a trait that can be easily mistaken for aggression. Brent helped us understand Roscoe behavior and trained US how to manage his fear in a positive manner . Brent truly takes the time and makes the effort needed to fit your individual situation, something that was a struggle for us with multiple trainers previous to Brent. We highly recommend Brent.
Children’s or pet playpens or baby gates across a doorway can be used to similar effect. The additional benefit is that in a smaller area, your dog will either learn to ‘hold on’ to avoid toileting in the cosy ‘den’, or will at least select a place away from his bed to toilet. As soon as you let your dog out from the crate or pen take them to the toileting spot and do not keep your dog confined for long periods of time.
Work through these steps until your dog responds on his own to being called and no longer needs to be guided to you with the leash. At that point, you can start increasing the distance between you and your partner (up to 12 feet). You also can begin playing the game from room to room in your house.

At Train Pet Dog we provide expert tips for every breed of dog. From toy breeds to large working breeds we have specific training techniques that will make your dog a well behaved, disciplined and obedient pet.
Obedience training doesn’t solve all behavior problems, but it is the foundation for solving just about any problem. Training opens up a line of communication between you and your dog. Effective communication is necessary to instruct your dog about what you want her to do. You can teach her anything from ‘stay’ (don’t bolt out the door) to ‘sit’ (don’t jump up on the visitors) to ‘off’ (don’t chew the furniture).
I’m Pam Coath, owner of Main Line Dog Training Service, LLC. I am a CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer, knowledge Assessed) with the APDT. Most dogs, no matter what their eventual advanced training or intended purpose, live with people who want them to behave in ways that make them pleasant to be around, keep them safe, and provide for the safety of other people and pets. Dogs do not figure out basic obedience on their own; they must be trained. And we have been successful trainers for over 25 years now.
One excellent first step you can take is to join the Association of Professional Dog Trainers. The APDT is the largest professional association of dog trainers in the world. The APDT offers many benefits, including the largest and most informative seminars on dog training/behavior available, an outstanding bimonthly newsletter, Internet e-mail lists where trainers share training tips and information, and numerous opportunities to network with other training professionals.
This is the term used by some veterinarians and trainers to refer to dogs who go crazy when left alone, attempting to destroy their surroundings, barking and crying uncontrollably, and otherwise causing havoc.
Take your dog on regular walks with a leash. This is important not just for training, but for his physical and mental health. Depending on what breed of dog you have, he may need a lot of exercise to keep him happy and in shape.

You don’t need to sign up for an obedience class to get help training your puppy. I’ve taught hundreds of those classes and they can be overwhelming for a puppy. Timid puppies can get overrun by bullies, and excitable puppies just more excitable.

You will be WOWED after just talking with him. We were so lucky to have found Andrew and his co-trainers and are extremely thankful for the training they gave Gracie. Check them out, I really believe you will be impressed too! (See Full Review on Google+)

Train on an empty stomach. Don’t feed as large a meal as usual a few hours before training your dog. The more your dog wants the treat, the more focused he’ll be on the task he needs to perform to get it.
Ask the other trainers to show you photos of just 5 or 10 dogs they trained that are obedient off-leash. They won’t be able to or they would already have them on their website. No other service dog trainer Near Me or anyone else in Northern California teaches off-leash obedience without using shock collars.
Dog Training Tips: Distractions and your Dog Gab Jimenez, B.A. We have all experienced it, some more than others. Everyone knows what it’s like to be distracted; you can’t focus, your mind begins to wander, and sometimes you even go from task to task without completing anything. Our dogs encounter the same struggle with distractions as many a…
6. Catch your dog being good. It’s easy to get caught up in scolding when your puppy is getting into trouble, but rewarding him out of the blue for being good lets him know he’s doing the right thing.
I think this is very important information to know especially if you are planning on becoming a pet owner soon. Not just German shepherds either, it is important all dogs are trained. I know that my dog will protect me when needed and stay calm when needed, I raised him well.
Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow @ 2:00 to watch episode 9 with Nick and I as we talk about dogs with anxiety! Did you know that anxiety affects over 40% of the dog population?!?! We are going to break that statistic down and let you know how you can help your dog!
Some people debate whether or not it is possible to train puppies, and others ask whether it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks. The answer to both questions is an unequivocal YES. Whatever the age of your dog, the right time to begin training is right now! The most important time in your dog’s life is right now. Your dog’s behavior is constantly changing. A dog that is well-behaved today will not necessarily remain that way forever. New problems can always develop. Existing problems can always get worse.
3. Dogs are not born understanding English. The new puppy you brought home two days ago has no idea what the word “no” means. Instead of expecting him to drop whatever it is he’s doing, show him what you want him to do instead.
Classical conditioning (or Pavlovian conditioning) is a form of learning in which one stimulus, the conditioned stimulus, comes to signal the occurrence of a second stimulus, the unconditioned stimulus. Classical conditioning is when a dog learns to associate things in its environment, or discovers some things just go together. A dog may become afraid of rain through an association with thunder and lightning, or it may respond to the owner putting on a particular pair of shoes by fetching its leash. Classical conditioning is used in dog training to help a dog make specific associations with a particular stimulus, particularly in overcoming fear of people and situations.
Hand feed your dog. At meal time, start feeding your dog out of your hand. Then use your hands to put the rest of the food in the bowl. This will put your scent on your dog’s bowl and also normalize having your hands around their bowl and food. This should help fix or prevent any food aggression tendencies.
