Kona the Malinois leaves us today after her boarding stay. Kona can be a bit nervous with new people which can make handling a bit tedious• We are very proud of our Trainers for handling and caring for her with confidence and gaining her trust throughout her stay.

Allowing dogs to learn and build trust with other handlers actually helps them build confidence with new people. Boarding stays like this are so beneficial for nervous dogs and forces them to come out of their shell. Good job Kona!

I hear this nonsesne from all sides of the training world. If the dog is properly trained, and properly reinforced, they will perform as desired sans tools—if you’ve trained them properly.

For balanced trainers it’s primarily a ge***al wagging argument used to try to deride the competition, and to elevate the admonisher’s sorely fragile ego. For positive only/force-free trainers, it’s primarily an ideological stance, or a gross demonstration of ignorance.

Regardless where it emanates from, the ones most negatively impacted are the innocent owners (and their dogs) who are looking to these so-called experts for guidance. And so after hearing repeatedly that having to rely on tools is a sign of either poor training or a poor moral compass, owners often view the very practical, and the very useful reliance on tools as a sign of their own failures. And so they feel compelled to try to get away from them as soon as possible.

As I’ve said many times, the goal shouldn’t be to get rid of tools, the goal should be to get rid of the problems. And for most owners and dogs those problems are best curtailed and best kept at bay by continued use of the tools which best serve the desired goals.

Are there exceptions? Are there dogs who will happily not push back against any of the rules once they know what’s expected and once they’ve been trained with lots of repetitions and diligence? Of course. Just like there are people who never speed, never roll through a stop sign, and who would never think to push back against any rules once they know them. But these are indeed the exceptions.

For most dogs, and for most people, the tools of authority (cops, laws, and the legal system for us—tools, training and owners who lead for dogs), are a necessary bulwark against our own desires and proclivities of the moment, which would often see either species—fully knowing whats expected and “proper”, make very different decisions.

Which brings us to something else I’ve written about often: knowing and doing are two very different things. It’s a simpleton who assumes that an animal (dog or human) with their own desires, drives, and unique personalities—would “do” simply because they “know”.

Put very simply, if we cannot get the highly intelligent, morally aware human to do what’s right without the threat of undesired consequences delivered by an authority figure, how on earth do we expect something equivalent or better from our dogs? Our dogs who are far less intelligent and where morals have no influence on behavior—which means they’ll be even more inclined to be opportunistic, self-serving, and impulsive. What foolish nonsense is it that would encourage owners to choose a far more problematic, stressful, freedom-diminishing, and dangerous tool-less path?

Enough listening to the “experts”. Find the tools which best help you and your dog, learn how to use them properly, and then, without shame, guilt, or self-judgement—use them as often and as long as they serve and improve you and your dog’s life together.

Wet paws after a rainy morning walk with Whiskey & Chucky ☔️

Whiskey the Cavapoo is enrolled in our board and train program. It’s common for pet owners to feel anxious when leaving their dogs, but updates like this provide reassurance. Whiskey truly blossomed when I introduced him to our staff dog Chucky, which helped him quickly adjust and feel more at home 🏡 💕

Tapatio is on week 3 of his board and train program with us. His journey towards becoming a well-mannered and confident boy has started! With his imposing size and desire to overcome human and dog reactivity, we know he’s ready for this challenge.

We are working on developing his leash manners, ensuring he walks with grace and control. He’s learning how to strut confidently by his trainers side.

🐶 Introducing Chili: The Cattle Dog Puppy Ready for Training! 🌶️

Chili is an adorable and energetic cattle dog puppy who's embarking on a journey of training and socialization. As we all know, cattle dogs are renowned for their hardworking nature, intelligence, and unwavering loyalty, making them incredible companions. However, their spirited demeanor also calls for a strong foundation in training right from the start🐾 Socialization: One of the key aspects of raising a well-rounded dog is socialization. It's crucial to expose Chili to a variety of people, animals, and environments at an early age. By gradually introducing her to new experiences, sights, and sounds, we can help her build confidence and develop excellent social skills. Whether it's playdates with other friendly dogs or supervised meetings with new humans, Chili will learn to navigate the world around her with ease.

🏠 House Training: House training is an essential step in Chili's education. By establishing a consistent routine, providing ample opportunities for outdoor bathroom breaks, and rewarding her for good behavior, we'll help her understand where it's appropriate to relieve herself. Patience, positive association, and a watchful eye will be the keys to success in this aspect of training.

🥘 Introduction to Food Work: Cattle dogs are known for their strong work ethic, and Chili will be no exception. Incorporating food work into her training regimen will stimulate her mentally and physically. Through interactive feeding puzzles, treat-dispensing toys, and basic obedience exercises during mealtime, Chili will learn to focus, problem-solve, and channel her energy constructively.

🏠 Crate Training: Crate training is a valuable tool for both Chili's safety and comfort. By gradually introducing her to her crate as a safe and cozy den, she'll learn that it's her personal space. Crate training will aid in house training, prevent destructive behavior when unsupervised, and provide a secure environment for Chili to relax and rest.
