When your dog exhibits bad behaviors such as inappropriate chewing, barking, or jumping up, what causes those behaviors and what can you do to correct them?
As the former owner of three naughty dogs, I had the same questions. My dogs Dax, Shep, and Diesel all had unique issues and difficulties due to their past experiences in life. Through intensive study, and lots of hard work, I was able to correct their behaviors and raise each as a happy, healthy dog that wasn’t a constant source of anxiety, pain, and stress.
In this book, I’ll combine my first-hand experience with these three difficult, but wonderful, dogs along with the expert advice and insight from some of the top dog trainers today. Trainers such as:
- Ian Stone – Simpawtico Dog Training
- Jason Lake – Prodogz Dog Training
- Joann Neve – Pack Leader Training
- Cori Ludemann – Polite Pups Dog Training
…and many more
I’ve interviewed these trainers and gotten them to share their best techniques for correcting different unwanted behaviors your dog may be exhibiting, or could exhibit in the future. Through their advice you’ll develop a bag of tricks to curb your dog’s bad behavior and understand why these behaviors are showing up. We’ll discuss how to reward your dog and what sorts of disciplinary measures work and what ones can backfire.
We’ll also discuss the signs that you and your dog need professional help and how to find the right trainer. Not one method works with every dog, so we offer multiple strategies, allowing you to discover which will work best to solve your dog’s behavior issues.
Remember, there are NO BAD DOGS, only dogs whose owners don’t understand how to properly teach, train, and correct their unacceptable behaviors. If you find yourself owning a “problem dog” then you need to accept the fact that it’s up to YOU to change YOUR mindset, behavior, and correction strategies so that you can help your dog reach their full potential. This book was written for YOU, to help you do just that.
