Pack Leader – A must read for all dog owners

My sister recently sent me this article. It is a quick easy read which clearly illustrates where the concept of pack dominance came from, and how it is deceptively easy to use as a scape goat for many big ticket behavior problems. I never consider anyone using force and intimidation to gain compliance or “submission” from their dog a bad person. Instead i see them as a deeply devoted dog enthusiast with incomplete information. I hope this helps open some doors for those of you who swear by the pack leader philosophy and helps you deepen your bond and with your best friend and family member.  falling for the leader of the pck

Training Tip: A Dog’s Training is Never Done

For a dog – training is never done. Learning is a life-long endeavor and a dog’s behavior is always in flux. Sometimes, they finally get what you have spent weeks trying to teach them, and other times, they seem to completely forget something they used to do with expert precision. It’s important to always continue to train your dog both new and old behaviors. Most of what we ask of our dogs is a bit counterintuitive for them — don’t jump on guests, walk in a straight line and keep my pace, don’t sniff everything or play with every dog may seem like a piece of cake to a human but to a dog, it’s pretty challenging. Keeping it fresh and exciting is the key to keeping your dog interested in your silly little rules. Another good thing to keep in mind is your dog doesn’t owe you anything. When I hear someone say “but he should know that” I am quick to remind them that he will always repeat what has worked for him in the past. If that is humping, pulling or barking, he is going to keep on doing it. It’s our job to teach our dogs what is expected and teach him that following our lead is more rewarding than not. That it’s an ongoing relationship builder. Now get out there and train your dog!
