A dog’s world is their oyster and they constantly sniff and watch you to get information. They are naturally devoted. “Dogs have instinctive intelligence, adaptive intelligence, and working and obedience intelligence” stated Dr. Stanley Coren, author of The Intelligence of Dogs. Building the training relationship between you and your dog is the first step. Patient, steady, consistent training is what dogs require and every dog’s learning capability is different. Breed, age, environment, health, diet your dog’s intelligence and personality will make the difference in his/her learning capabilities so firstly I will assess your dog and his/her relationship with you, and the behaviour in his/her natural environment.
This is best for puppies (must be 4 months and older for advanced training levels of stay and heel), and older dogs that have no training or that need refreshment training. Showing you’re the boss and re-establishing or furthering a bond with leash work, and the basic commands come, heel, sit, stay, lay-down, stand, leave it and out.
PROVIDING DIRECTION AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING
Showing you’re the boss and creating a bond for both owner and their dogs. Training and educating you on how to exude your inner authority where your dog will learn boundaries and connect to you as a higher-ranking partner that he/she should follow. Wolf pack leaders work as problem solvers, they show compassion, they provide direction, they provide stability to the pack. They are not necessarily dominant, aggressive and intimidating to subordinates.
Behaviour why your dog misbehaves? Cause and Correction? Correcting unwanted disrespectful behaviour to name a few: jumping, nipping, chewing, anti-social behaviour, fear, excessive barking, reactivity towards other dogs, overly dominant. Your dog needs to understand what you want of he/she, how it should be done and what is off limits. Communicating effectively with your dog so he/she will not be anxious or bewildered but more relaxed and at ease because you are now the decision maker and leader. “The wolf also passed along to dogs its most indispensable qualities: devotion to its pack, sociability, and a capacity for learning, communication, and expression”, The Hidden Life of Wolves by Jim and Jamie Dutcher.
