Chances are you are here because you are searching for how to train dogs at home. With countless dog training classes in almost every town or city, online dog training still has the edge. You may not be able to get to the local classes. You may not like the training methods. You may live rurally and it’s too far away. Your dog may be too badly behaved to go there. You may dislike the idea of obligatory vaccination. There are countless reasons why learning to train dogs at home out-favours physical classes.
I suggest that all dogs need some form of training. They are pack animals and pack animals have a strong hierarchy system. Dogs automatically understand where another dog is in relation to them as far as their status is concerned. They also use this to position us. We are part of their pack, therefore we fit into their idea of status.
Unless we calmly, but powerfully, position ourselves as the pack leaders, IN THEIR EYES NOT IN OURS, we will always have problems with them. Their behaviour is likely to become annoying, unpleasant or even aggressive. Then their lives will become miserable as we take the only course of action humans seem capable of – confine them or kill them.
But they were only being dogs. It’s us who are at fault. We need to understand how dog works, how dog thinks, how dog reacts. Until we do that, untrained dogs will be a nuisance, at the very least. And possibly dangerous.
Learning how to train dogs at home isn’t about dealing with the unpleasant behaviour. It isn’t about using force. What makes sense to you makes no sense to your dog. Conversely, what makes sense to your dog, makes no sense to you.
It’s about removing the cause. Then the problems disappear on their own. Then the dog’s behaviour improves by their own free will.
So you need to think like a dog. How on earth do you do that?
This fast, kind, gentle but powerful training method is amongst, if not the, most successful and the simplest methods of learning how to train dogs at home.
Don’t be fooled though. Simple doesn’t always mean easy. This method of dog training is more about training humans than it is about training dogs. Training humans to treat dogs in dog language. This total change in the way we think can be hard for some. But the videos on this training course, which you can view over and over again until you get it, make that change much easier for us.
A rescue dog I have was totally transformed from a constant barker to a calm dog within ONE afternoon.
I love the way the world is waking up to calm, gentle methods that look for the cause in problems and rectify those. It totally endorses the natural dog health approach that makes for the happiest, healthiest, longest lived dogs who just don’t need vets.
