Training Collar Guide: Pick the training collar that best suits your pet

Where did you learn from your dog training techniques?

Question KS : Where did you learn your techniques dog training Where did you learn? Watch your parents? Working with a professional coach? Reading training books? I am particularly interested in those who “train” their dogs by swatting. Where did you learn that? * Mine is a mixture of watching my mom work with the Danes we grew up and research I’ve done. I have not seen a single person who thought extreme physical contact with a dog was acceptable. This man called himself a trainer … and he literally forced a dog on the floor shouting “down” in front of the dog. Funny …. because this man was my uncle’s dog trainer for months. And the dog still does not understand the answer commande.Meilleure : Answer by

I guess it was mostly research and Trial and error for me. I used to be a coach and that’s where I had a dog with a serious resource problems garde.

  • I learned through training with certified trainers respected, and through my volunteer work at a shelter downtown grande.Et IMO no coach would be worthy of the name of trying to “teach” a dog that way. It is common knowledge fairly common these days that physical punishment is not an effective way to train a dog.

  • Well, I learned a lot when I was a child of what NOT to faire.Je think the training has really evolved. Pretty good, some not. People (hopefully) are not shoving his nose in “oopsies” plus.En respect what I do now? Most of it came through trial and error. Positive reinforcement and redirection of inappropriate behavior very well for me. However, I know I made some mistakes but I learn from them, and I will continue to be a better coach than life continue.Je feel that as time passes, we learn from our experiences, good and bad, and from there. I think not a single novice dog owner can make all the right decisions, and a very experienced owner will always continue to learn and grow with their training practices.

  • When I was a kid, I worked in a kennel under a professional coach. In addition to pet training, he also trained our dog to K9 local force and led a team of sled. I learned a lot of lui.J ‘have also done much research. lecture.Et and more importantly, I trained many dogs. (Even had a passage in Petco as a trainer for a while – which was BS) I learned what works and what does not.

  • Mine is a complete mixture of reading books, watching television, many behavioral training courses. I adopted what works for my dog ​​bit stream and use of all resouses.Personnellement, I do not think there is only one way to train a dog, I think every dog ​​is different and you need to adopt different ways of training for each of them .. Some need a system of corporate training hard (no violence) and some need a quiet calm approach based on the race and personality of the dog ..

  • Well … it was a kind of trial and error. Fortunately, my first dog is intelligent and knows what I want, although I have a hard time to get through her I purchased several books, probably paid everyone’s wages and glasses met with really smart people here who helped me a ton!

  • my dogs taught me! seriously, ive learned a Crufts winner, a police dog handler, other trainers, college, books, internet and trial and error, I train dogs for other now but I do not consider myself competent and I will never, qualified means that you know everything there is to know and I never will be, things are always changing, hopefully for the better! erm. … never heard of swatting tho!?

  • Mine was a combo as you look at my mother with her Danish rescue, and I do my own research before we came to our rescue Pitties deux.Il was also trial and error we have lived with Maggie. She was so sensitive, it took a lot more than we were both prepared for, but we did. And look now =] Hit / swatting dog does nothing. They are not like children, they can connect with the striking what they did wrong. Positive reinforcement is the way I go.

  • My father is a sort of Swat person’s physical … so I did not really learn lui.Un combination of common sense, research, people here, and find what works is where I found my training techniques.

  • I got my first dog at age 4 years. & Watched my older brother helped him former.Au when I was a teenager, communicate with animals was almost second nature. It worked better for me to understand my own peers! Then my 20 years until the late 30’s I trained with loads of other trainers both agility and obedience. I learned a lot of training methods of good, bad, not so effective and efficient …. and how to make a difference, what works for me and it’s pas.À this day, I developed the sensitivity of dog communication and broadened my understanding of the species. I also learned more about myself as a human being. I actively engage in animal-assisted therapy ….. My most rewarding business by doing something with chiens.Frapper or swatting? Ever. My father was in this with me …. So I knew better than to pass this along to any other living creature …. be it a dog, cat, or child.

  • I was very lucky as a youngster my parents introduced me to some of the best trainers dog sports. Most of what I use is based on methods developed by Rex Carr. The biggest mistake we ever made Rex was not writing a book that meant that we must turn to those he taught for information. Two of the most popular sources right now are “10 minute retriever” by Amy Dahl, and “Smartworks for Retrievers” by Evan Grahm. And then there are many articles that were written by both Dennis and Mike Lardy Voigt.Mais if you ask me if I buy into all the “positive reinforcement BS” the answer is hell no! Strengthening positive is probably the most misunderstood and misused terminology planète.Le that positive reinforcement is one of the four phases of operant conditioning, and one without the other three is about as useless as anything. Art in the training is to understand when and why any of the four is the right course of action. It’s just a hell of a lot more than Pavlov ring a bell to get a cookie.

  • I took my dogs through local clubs for training. Because they are rescues, the costs were nominale.Nous have learned to teach our dogs “down” first by luring them with a treat (so that they associated with behavior control), then with the practice continues. Another method I have seen is walking on the dog’s leash, where the only thing to do would be comfortable for the dog to get in the down position, but I’ve never tried this technique.Jamais I would not have swat a dog: they combine the Swat Valley with the hand of man, not with the behavior they were / are not supposed to do. Hitting a dog during training only causes future problems.

  • I learned a lot by watching my father. he was trained and worked with GSD on the police force. He was shocked when I finished with a laboratory after GSD all my life, but that’s another story =] I learned from my father, but also read as much as possible on a laboratory and how to train effectively. It should be noted that Rocko shredded the first two “guides” on the formation of a laboratory. It took me a long time to start seeing success, and we always have the opportunity setbacks. (There are now two). When you teach the dog “no bites, I did use a light swat nose correction, but it has never been in a tough, abused. Then we replaced our hand with a toy was OK to bite. This was the attitude problem that we never corrected with a physical correction. Potty training has involved a lot of watching … As soon as he began snorting, or if it did squat it was a mad dash to catch it and run to the backyard before he finished. I do believe in the “shove his nose in and say NO!” Any reprimand AFTER the fact seems useless to me they … have no idea what they have done so. thats something my father taught me. If you do not catch them in the act, then they took away as far as training is concerned. This seems to be true for us, and can be very frustrating when we discover he has done something bad and fled with it. His biggest vice? Tupperware is drying on the flat support! grr! It’s getting better and better, but this dog is not to win “obedience” contest soon! * sigh * but we love her little …

  • I was exposed to dog training back in my homeland, Europe at the age of 12 years and got hooked ever since. My first contact was under a name that gentleman PMI Aggie at that time had been training in the KNPV for almost 40 years, I guess he knew a thing or two. I continued my studies and learned under some of the most influential trainers in Belgium and Holland. None of these people believed in the “positive only” crap that is spewed today. I kept my studies here and I’m still learning all jours.J ‘have attended hundreds of seminars and I taught about autant.Je have trained with some of the best coaches in the country, trainers who instinctively understand a REAL dog and what makes a travail.Il was over 30 years since, and I am proud of say that this is a process without fin.Je some people here look like Tom L who was training again, I was still alive and I study the Bible as his answers, I look at the works of animals and a few others and I absorb everything they say and add it to my collection of training ideas. Dog training is not rocket science, but it is not what most people think it is either!

  • Ive always read training books. I have about 50, but has recently Greekman me difficult things these books have never mentionnés.No BS rewarding behavior that good and ignoring bad behavior because you can not ignore a dog snapping at someone . He taught me that training réelle.Un man taught me to have more than 50 pounds in ten années.Ce is not that something! ADD * Also train my own dog I know what works for him and what does that these techniques I picked up my own dog.
