This training lesson is used for dogs with dominance issues. But I recommend this practice with EVERY dog. I use this lesson for owners who are looking to gain control of their dog.
I use this as a BASE for rehabilitating out of control dogs with severe issues.
Please review the Are YOU the pack leader? questionnaire to find out if you need to use the nothing in life is free training with you and your pup. Becoming a pack leader is a 24 hours a day 7 days a week job you need to practice.
How It Works :
This is a minimum two lesson class. This is taught privately in your home where I personalize all of the methods and routines to you and your dogs lives. I will teach you how to gain control of your home again. This method is basically making the dog WORK for everything it receives.
Dogs get bored without a job and sometimes become neurotic and obsessive and find their own jobs. Often times these jobs are not pleasant for the owners. A part of responsible dog ownership is fulfilling the dogs needs. All a dog asks for is leadership, exercise, and food to eat. When a dog receives this the dog can practice a calm submissive personality which is a balanced dog. To give you an example of a calm submissive dog, look at a service dog for the disabled. That state of mind is not achieved through training per say, as much as it is through fulfilling the dogs needs.
Check out my page "The Key To A Happy Dog" to learn more about creating a happy dog and fulfilling their needs.
Things that pack leadership training helps with:
-Bolting out the door
-Disrespecting your space (begging for food, pushing on you)
-Demanding things (barking at you for play, biting at you for attention)
-Resource Guarding (growling at you, another human or another dog when approaching while the dog has a possession)
This is totally applicable to EVERY dog as EVERY dog is eager to be a calm submissive pack member.
