When it comes to basic dog house training, James O'Bryan from Who's Training Who says it's often best to focus on real-world everyday issues that can be solved through obedience training.
-Dogs crave boundaries and discipline. When these are absent we often begin to see behavior issues arise like excessive barking, jumping on people, anxiety, and sometimes aggression. We can provide security and predictability for your dog through obedience training.
-Becoming the 'Alpha' for your dog is more complicated than many realize and involves many nuances that can only be effectively addressed with a professional trainer and behavior specialist. It is not simply being bigger and more frightening than the other dogs.
-One practical way to avoid compounding behavior issues is to be calm and almost ignore your dog when you first come home and just before you leave the house. These are two points at which we pile anxiety on our dogs by intentionally getting them excited and then leaving the dog with nowhere to focus the energy we have created.
-A happy dog is one who can relax and remain calm in busy situations, not necessarily one who is continually bouncing around and wagging his tail.
