Here are a few Real Keys that you will find helpful when training your dog, whether you are trying to train your dog to stop barking, come when they are called, sit, or other behavior that you're not happy with...
If you want to create a deep bond with your dog and get long lasting, rapid results, here are some crucial tips...
The first thing you must do is win your dogs mind. You will struggle all the way with your training if you don't start with this.
Winning your dogs mind means that your dog looks to you for all the decisions. I would recommend that before you do anything else, watch one of the amazing video on line that show you the 5 Golden rules to establishing yourself as the pack leader. You don't want to set yourself and your dog up to fail, so make sure you put these things in place before you begin.
You need to know that your dog will listen at the crucial point, this could save their lives, you don't want them running off and doing their own thing. Your dog may play ball occasionally and even do what you ask 99% of the time. But if you want your dog to always listens to you and do as you ask every time, then you need to win your dogs mind.
Motivation is the second Key to Success
You must discover what your dog enjoys doing, whether it's chasing a ball or a toy for exercise, or you throwing a frizby, or just a simple walk, it is really important in terms of a reward. If you can make the experience enjoyable for both of you, you'll find you will achieve more and they will look forward to training with you.
Every breed is different, some like to chase a ball or a stick, others love agility, others love the water and retrieving things, or simply just following their obedience training and pleasing you.
So start with what your dog loves and this will help them develop their skills, work with them, make their training a fun and enjoyable reward for your dog.
Here are the 3 Main Rewards:
Food- This could be a liver treat, dog biscuit or even small pieces of meat.
Affection- Lots of Strong Verbal Praise, Pats and Cuddles
Toys- Games, throwing whatever it is they love to play with, it could be a stick or a ball, or chasing your dog, they just love the interaction from you.
Remember that your dog is always going to work hard to please you, so be fair, if you don't want to use food, then give plenty of affection and praise when your dog does well. That way you'll gain their trust and respect.
Here are some tips when using food rewards:
Do not give food rewards every time
Always vary food rewards
Never let your dog know what the reward is
If your dog doesn’t obey you and come first time then do not give them the food reward.
Achieving perfection is the third key and that takes practice!
The key to success is learning how to encourage behavior that is closer to what you want than the last time. This is where rewards come in handy to motivate them and show your dog what it is that you want.
Don't break your dogs trust in you by using any negative training!
One of the best sites I've found that shows you all of this and more is The Online Dog Trainer, put together by Top Dog Trainer, Doggy Dan.
I love that Dan is so gentle with the dogs that he trains, this is the way to get your dogs love and respect. Remember, YOU are their World.

Can you relate to this? You're out for a walk with your dog, you're relaxed and enjoying your walk, when you see another dog coming towards you...
...your heart starts to race, because you know how your lovely but very dominant dog is going to react, with aggression, pulling and barking like mad, it's embarrassing and frightening at the same time.
You don't know how the other dog will react, or the owner!
Even though both dogs are on a leash, if the other dog gets too close it will set your dog off, you know you're going to be in for another unpleasant encounter.
Your dog starts barking and snarling, pulling you off your feet.
You try to find an escape route, but it's too late, your dog is in full Dominant dog mode.
You've tried everything from tugging on the lead, yelling at the dog, you even tired a different harness collar and lead, distracting them with treats but nothing worked.
It turns a beautiful relaxing walk into a nightmare! and you don't get a chance to chat to people on your walk because your dog is so anti social.
Where did it all go wrong? You've almost given up hope.
The thing that dog owners and trainers need to understand is that if the dog has been getting the wrong message at home, it's too late when you see another dog coming down the street to turn it around.
Here's the thing... dogs are not as complicated as humans, they don't care about the size of the T.V. or a faster car, or a luxurious holiday, they may be intelligent but they are also simple animals, dogs are all about SURVIVAL Full Stop. This means protecting their property and the pack, especially when they are outside the home.
If you think about this, they are pack animals and they only understand leaders and followers, as leaders they decide what is dangerous and take the initiative to protect the pack.
So your dog thinks it's the pack leader and sees another strange dog approaching, they will show their pack leaders skills by walking right up to the other dog, head up, chest out, tail up, growling and barking in an attempt to get the other dog to back down.
And that's when all hell breaks loose.
But don't blame the dog, what started this was you giving them the message that they were the pack leader in the first place!
That they were in charge in your home...
This is where I found Doggy Dan's training method so helpful.
He really understands how your dog thinks and he's able to help you to show your dog that YOU are the pack leader. And the on line site shows you how simple this is to do.
Dan even offers YOU a 3 Day $1 trial of the site that you can take advantage of. The really nice part is that everything he does is done in such a kind and gentle way. He simply uses 5 Golden Rules.
Wait till you see how Doggy Dan's pack act around other dogs they don't overplay their role because they all know that he is the pack leader and so they can relax.. Now every dog is different, some can be more dominant than others, some will be more submissive.
But as long as YOU are the pack leader, it won't matter what type your dog is, that's the secret. Once this is established, you'll find training will be so much easier.
You'll find you'll only need a gentle word of warning, a slight pull of their lead or a food treat distraction will work really well.
It's not to say that the training techniques you are using at present aren't good, but with no strong foundation, they just won't work for you.
In Summary: Once the other dog shows up, you're dog is not going to take any notice of you because they have bigger things to worry about. Like protecting their pack (which is you)
So, YOU need to become the pack leader to turn it around. Doggy Dan has given me some great training tricks to pass on to you, if you follow these you'll have a calmer dog when the other dog approaches.
Check them out...
But remember, the foundation of YOU as pack leader HAS to be in place first.
Remember to relax immediately afterwards, dogs sense your tension.
The thing I love about this method is that it works with your dogs instincts. For instance, we know that it is natural in the dog world for one dog to be above the other in a pack, you can't change that in a dog's behaviour.
But if you position yourself as the top dog in the pack, they will be less likely to become overly protective, tense, aggressive and dominant and take things too far.
Take a look at look at this great video of two dogs playing at being dominant and submissive.
If you're ready to take control back from your dog and become the gentle and kind pack leader they are looking for then get your 3 day $1 trial and take a look around this amazing site, I think you'll LOOVE Doggy Dan's method of Training.
P.S. Remember that leaving it till the other dog is approaching is too late, get help for your dog now and sort out the problem so you can turn things around, your dog is just waiting for you to give him the right message.

Wondering how to raise the "Perfect" Dog?
Watch the movie below for FREE tips!
Turn Your Puppy Into The Perfect Dog.
How do you raise the perfect dog?
We all want the perfect dog, but it's a bit like saying, is there a perfect human?
I guess you know the answer is No...
However, I must say there are some really good people out there and some awesome dogs too.
So... What's the trick you ask?
Here's my best advice... before you start stressing out about puppy school and learning the usual tricks like high fives, commando crawls and roly polies, ask you self this honest question...
Do you want your dream dog to be a performing monkey? that's on show for visitors when they come, so they can comment on how cool that is? How clever your dog is, asking you how you trained him to do that?
We spend so much time on simple commands while we forget the important stuff, so the next time your visitors come you may be warning them of things like, " Don't go near him when he's eating", or "Don't pat him on the head", or "Watch the children don't go near his toys"!
Isn't this insane? We get so busy teaching them commands like "sit" and "stay" and we forget about the really important things, we often don't think about these things until it's too late.
The reason for this is that most dog trainers are stuck doing what everyone else is doing, training commands like, "sit", "down" and "stay". They don't think any further than that, they are just following what everyone else is doing - like sheep. And no one is questioning it.
I want you to think about this, dogs are not euthanized because they didn't sit properly or they were too slow to pick up the "down" or "stay" command.
No, of course not, people don't really care about that stuff, and sadly that's all that's taught at puppy school, but the fact is that more dogs are put down because of Aggression, barking, challenging and growling at visitors, aggressive behaviour to owners, visitors and children.
It's so sad, when they could have been helped.
Nothing is more frightening and dangerous than a dog that is out of control. A dog that pulls on the leash and who ignores you when they are off leash. This is so dangerous not just for your dog but for cars, and other dogs or people who get in their way.
here are very few trainers out there who can show you how to prevent this, I suspect it's because they don't understand it themselves.
Here's a list of the Five things people see as the "Perfect Dog"
1. Calm around all dogs and other animals
2. Friendly to all people including children
3. Obedient and Relaxed around the home
4. Excels at coming when called at the park
5. Perfect when walking in public on the leash
Hhmmm… I can hear you saying…. You’ve got a point there! So how on earth do we achieve it?
Well I've got good news... it's not complicated.
Well I should say, it's not complicated or tricky anymore...

Is Your Puppy Destroying Your Things?
Here are some great tips for training your dog from Doggy Dan's - The On Line Dog Trainer...
I LOOVVE the way he trains the dogs out of their bad habits, his technique is not harsh, he shows you how to have success the kind and gentle way without harsh punishment.
Whether they're chewing and destroying things, wetting the carpet, pulling on the leash, being aggressive to other dogs and people, barking all day or digging holes, no matter what the problem is, Dan has the answer.
There are a few real keys to dog training, whether you are trying to train your dog to come when called, sit, stop barking or any other behavior.
Understanding their importance is critical to achieving rapid results that are long lasting and help develop the bond between you and your dog.
The first is simple; you must win your dogs mind.
If you don’t achieve this first then you will be struggling all the way.
When I talk about winning your dogs mind what I really mean is that your dog looks to you for all the decisions.
Before you do anything else watch one of the amazing video sites that show you the 5 Golden rules to establishing yourself as the pack leader.
If you aren’t putting these in place then you are setting yourself up to fail.
Just at the crucial point where you really want your dog to listen they will go and do their own thing.
For sure your dog may play ball occasionally or even most of the time, you may even have a dog that is obedient 99% of the time, however if you want a dog who always listens to you and does as you ask then you need to win your dogs mind.
The second key to success is to motivate your dog.
It is really important that you discover what it is that your dog enjoys both in terms of exercise and play but also in terms of a reward. If you can make the experience enjoyable then you will both achieve more and look forward to training.
Some dogs love to fetch, others love agility, and other dogs simply love obedience training, or swimming out into water and retrieving.
At least to start with find out what your dogs love is and help them develop this, what I am saying is work with your dog. The other point to recognize is to make training enjoyable reward your dog.
The three main rewards are:
Food- anything from a single dry biscuit to a whole piece of sausage!
Affection- pats, cuddles, lots of high verbal praise
Toys- games, throwing a stick or object, chasing your dog etc
Your dog is always going to work harder if you are fair in your training. Even if you do not want to use food you should make sure that you use affection accordingly when your dog does well
If you want to use food rewards then always follow these simple tips:
Always vary food rewards
Do not give food rewards every time
Never let your dog know what the reward is
If your dog doesn’t come first time then do not give them the reward
The third key to achieving perfection is practice!
Learning how to encourage behavior that is closer to what you want than the last is the third key to success. Again this is where rewards come in so handy! Motivate and then show your dog what it is that you want and there is no need for any negative training!

Training a new pup isn't easy if you don't have the right guide lines to follow, it's essential to train them properly if you want peace in your home, not to mention shoes without teeth marks.
Puppies are like babies, they teethe and they like to put things in their mouth and chew them, especially if the items has your scent on it.
Many a good pair of Jimmy Choo shoes have become Jimmy Chewed shoes. Sorry, that's my silly sense of humour!
Anything within the puppy's reach can be a target to be chewed. Even when you buy them good doggie chew toys!
They just LOVE the smell of your shoes and that's why they prefer them to a chew toy.
If you do have to leave your pup at home while you work, you could always crate them, there are many choices now, even clear plastic crates that they can see through but can't jump out of, they look more attractive than the normal wire crates in your home and you can take out or add on sections depending on the space your pup needs.
I am going to be featuring some great training tools from Experts in the Dog Training Niche, you can choose if you'd like to watch the training on Videos, or read a book and all in the comfort of your own home.
On line Dog Training is excellent, because you can go over each section at your own pace. So stay tuned for my recommendations in my next blog.
In the meantime, hide your shoes! 🙂
