I know how frustrating it can be to deal with any one of these issues, and when you find yourself dealing with more than one? FUGGETABOUTIT!!

You got a dog to enjoy life together right? So why does it instead feel like a huge load of stress was just added to your life when they joined the family?

Trainers are here for you! We don’t post these videos of our dogs doing a fancy heel & living their best off leash life to show off. We want to show you that YOU can also attain this level of happiness & freedom with your dog! You don’t have to feel stuck in your current situation, we’re here to help you achieve YOUR goals, no matter how crazy they may seem.

Get started TODAY by scheduling a phone consultation so we can discuss your goals!

Some comic relief for you, but also informational.

I’m a very open minded person & I carry this trait into training as well. For the most part I know which tools & methods work best for majority of dogs, but I’m also willing to try things that are out of the box if/when those don’t work for a specific dog. Dogs are individuals so it’s my job to cater to their individual needs & figure out what works best for them AND the owner.

I know some trainers that don't teach the significance of verbal markers, and in my opinion they're skipping over the meat & potatoes of dog training.

These 4 words are called "verbal markers" & I use them on a daily basis, they come in handy for nearly ANY scenario I'm in with my dogs.

I'm able to give them feedback on every single decision they make, which does 2 things:
1. Improves their skill level in training
2. Enhances the relationship they have with me, because they don't have to navigate this crazy world without my guidance...so they trust me MORE.

If you aren't already using markers (clickers work as well I just prefer verbal) I HIGHLY suggest trying them out. It will make things SO much easier for your dog to understand, and will save you some major headaches when your dog is confused and you don't understand why.

For anyone that has recently gotten or is planning to get a puppy. As soon as you bring them home the training starts!

I would start with crate training first, too much freedom for your puppy is just asking for trouble!

Taking quotes out of context is a great hobby👌🏻

Jerri said this in our trainer group message, you may not even remember saying it but it made me laugh out loud😂😂
Gotta love having a mentor that’s completely honest!

I heard Dr Phil say this on an episode of his show lately, he wasn’t talking about dogs, but boy does this statement apply to them.

If you are struggling to stop a certain behavior one very critical thing you need to remember is…the more often you allow your dog to rehearse that behavior, the better they get at it. Practice makes perfect right?

Reactivity
Leash pulling
Resource guarding
Anxious pacing
Lunging to create space
Jumping
Biting

Be proactive in your approach & try to PREVENT the behavior in the first place (easier said than done in some cases I know)

Are you struggling with any of these? Or something else? Let me know down below!

LET YOUR DOG MAKE MISTAKES!!!

I know it can seem frustrating when your dog makes mistakes during training, but understand that it’s NECESSARY for them to make those, it helps them learn.

Don’t get emotional or upset about it, let it happen then simply get them resituated & try again. This video is a great example of that. Kaizer got all the way off the place bed but his owner stayed calm then used some basic body pressure to get him back up there.

If you micromanage every single move your dog makes they will never get the opportunity to make a mistake & learn from said mistake. Because we let Kaizer make a mistake he learned from it, then on the second attempt he was able to succeed.

Yes we have to teach what we want, but in my opinion correcting a dog (AKA making a dog correct again) is just as necessary to the teaching process.

How can we expect them to know the consequences of a certain decision if they never get to execute that decision in the first place?

Hands down the most important step in dog training.

As a former elite athlete I know how important it is to have a great coach, & how trusting that coach will set you up to succeed in competition. I’m realizing more each day how true that is for dogs as well.

I’ve learned this the hard way a few times, I’ve even taken a couple (mild) bites from it, but they were learning experiences none the less.

I understand it from the dog’s perspective. Why would I risk my life doing this skill for a coach that I just met? Is it worth potentially breaking my neck? No. But having a coach that knows me on a personal level, one that’s in my corner pushing me to do new skills because they KNOW I’m capable of it, because they invested their time to help me get better as an at athlete…thats a coach I’d do anything for. That’s the relationship we should have with every dog we own or work with.

Tools are great, but they won’t help you at all if you don’t have a solid relationship first. Get your dog to WANT to be around you rather than HAVE to be around you.
#k918dogtraining

PS - Speaking of relationships I’ve really been missing being on a team recently - running a business by yourself can be very lonely sometimes. The #tulsapackathletics team has really filled that void for me & I’m starting to get to know my new TEAM more everyday. We’re all a little insane but in the BEST WAY! I’m so thrilled to be part of such an amazing group

BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO CREATING A DOG MODEL.

Step 1: teach a sit-stay or a down-stay.

This handy skill will allow you to pose your dog in front of any wall mural, photoshoot backdrop or scenic monument you can think of.

Much easier than trying to snap a photo when your dog will only sit still for .25 seconds.

There’s a new trendy diet going around for dogs…a vegan diet…and let me tell you it’s a load of 💩

If you choose to eat a vegan diet, fine, no judgement there, but your dog is a CARNIVORE & was designed to hunt & eat at least some amount of meat. (Veggies are still important too)

Roughly 10 years ago is the first time I ever heard vegetarians trying to convince other people that humans were “not meant to eat meat” that’s why our teeth look the way they do, they are designed for chewing & mashing not tearing. Okay, I’ll buy that, I’m still not a vegetarian but I see some logic in that.

Fast forward to present day & look at the teeth of a canine, teeth that are designed for ripping & tearing, but now people still choose to feed them no meat….what happened to your initial argument?

You can say your dog “prefers” a vegan diet, but that’s 100% projecting your own beliefs on an animal that isn’t given a choice. I’ve never seen a dog choose a salad over a raw chicken breast & I’m pretty confident I never will.

Have a dog with food allergies? They’re probably not allergic to chicken but allergic to the synthetic chicken flavoring thats sprayed all over their food, OR the abundance of other unknown additives also pumped into their food. Your best bet of having a healthier, happier & longer lifespan dog is a raw diet consisting of: meat, vegetables, bones, nuts/seeds, eggs.
The REAL kind, not the supplements you can add in.

My goal for this year is to be more helpful & informational with this account.

For a lot of reasons I hate social media; I hate the pointles content that sucks me down a rabbit hole & before I know it I’ve wasted 30 minutes of my life, I hate the armchair experts who have no hesitation bashing trainers online meanwhile they are not working their own dog or don’t even HAVE a dog of their own, I hate when people post nothing but #ads and it’s very obvious they don’t use the product themselves, they just want to make money off of it.

But there’s also a lot to love about social media; a small tip can help the everyday dog owner with an issue they’ve been struggling with for years. That’s what I’m here for & that’s what I hope to get better at.

I will never “harbor my knowledge” from others because they don’t pay me to hear it, if they are struggling I will help. My goal is to give away more and MORE free information in hopes that it reaches as many people as possible, because then I can help as many dogs as possible - and good karma is definitely real.

I’m not super comfortable on camera so I’m hoping to push myself to do that more until I am, because if my temporary discomfort can means sharing advice that will save the life of a dog then it’s worth it. #perspective

I have a list of ideas but if there’s any questions you have that you’re dying to have answered leave a comment below or shoot me a message!! I’m here to give the people what they want!!

Graduation day for Puddin. Big shout out to K918 Dog Training located just east of Mannford. In 4 classes we went from a wild, jerk your arm out of the socket walk and load my 76# butt in the jeep. To a no tug leash walk and single command leap in the jeep. Shannell (I hope I spelled that right) did awesome in explaining how the dogs understood and responded to commands. It was worth every penny to have a professional tell us how to work with our dog. And yes, that is Puddin's happy face. Thank you for showing us we had a even greater dog than we thought.
