Hi Guys, I can use some help re-homing this handsome good boy named Teddy! Free Training to help get you and Teddy on the right track. He is 8 years old, and is a Husky and German Shepherd mix. He has previous obedience training. It's believed he was going to be used for military work but didn't make the cut.

Teddy's original owner passed away and he has been with his current owners for about 5 months now.
They want to re-home him due to several separate situations of (quick snappy, short ) bites to the husband of the home when he approaches his wife to hand her a glass of water. I believe it's due to some protective (possibly resource) guarding of the wife of the home. I believe it's more about being unsure of what his job is and gets stressed, but he really doesn't want to be confrontational.

I have evaluated and assessed him and I can say that
His guarding is very very low level and when he is given instructions before his mom is approached he relaxes and relinquishes his perceived duties.

I approached his mom many times handing her a glass of water and he did not attack me at all and he got desensitized to it. He is misunderstood due to the owners having a lack of Understanding of Dog psychology and the husband doesn't want to try to work it out.

He loves affection and He is good with other dogs and people. He can live with another dog. Let's give this 8 Year old boy another chance at life! I can provide more essential information.

If you have a dog who is a strong puller, or has leash reactivity, learning how to use tools like the prong collar and E-Collar can be a game changer.

I'm coaching my clients here on proper use of the prong collar and the E-Collar. This was day one so we will clean things up; but it's a really good beginning on a path to more freedom that they want to create with their dogs.

This session was more about observing how well Apollo did with the Prong Collar on and if it was a right fit for Apollo and his parents. So far so good.

The goal is to be able to safely navigate through life with their dogs and experience more of the world together. So we will be working on Apollo's and Nala's leash reactivity issues; but first we need to get some fundamentals down. Really good session!

My Last Session With Penny. I had help from my trusty
friend Rocco!

Penny and her mom have grown so much since we started training. Flighty Penny is becoming confident Penny by every session we have.

Penny's mom has done such a great job working with Penny and their relationship and Penny's confidence continues to grow.

Penny can now go on long walks in highly stimulated areas without freezing and her flight behavior is diminishing greatly. She can now get into her mom's car for rides.

Penny's mom is now equipped to continue building Penny's confidence and to confidently lead Penny on adventures together, experiencing more of our beautiful world!

Great last session with Dyson. It's a wonderful and blessed feeling every time I'm able to help a dog stay re-homed.

I was contacted by a dog Rescue that I help, concerning Dyson. After His first day with his new family that had agreed to test out whether Dyson would be a good fit for the new family, the family were questioning if they should keep him. They were concerned about him being aggressive, but it turns out that he can be a high arousal and high prey drive dog

Training him has strengthened his pack drive and has helped his owners understand him and create a great relationship with him. They now know how to give him the leadership needed for him to thrive. He is truly a Love bug. They were also concerned about him being able to be social with their neighbors and friends Rottweiler. They share a back yard with them. So it's imperative that they get along. On Day one it didn't look like it could work. But as you can see below now things look like everything will be ok. 🙌🙌🙌
I'll be seeing them again possibly next month to do some more training in higher stimulated environments because they want to be able to go many places with Dyson. It's a done deal, Dyson has his new forever Home!

I LOVE WORKING WITH FEARFUL DOGS LIKE PENNY, AND HELPING THEM OVERCOME THEIR FEAR AND GAIN CONFIDENCE!

This is unedited work with my client and her dog Penny in our second session that happened today .

She recently rescued Penny and contacted me to help her because Penny is very flighty and has very low confidence to the point that she freezes. She has already been showing improvement after our first session last week. Her mom has been following my instructions and seeing progress. But we made even greater steps today! I love what I get to do! 😍

Our final Session with Hook went great! We did some exposure training at a nearby Home Depot in Merritt Island.

Highly stimulated and active places in the past would trigger Hooks Defense Drive and he would react towards people with barks and lunges but he's really a love bug. He just gets nervous and uncomfortable and is unsure about how to handle it. So We worked on focus and engagement between Hook and His parents in a highly stimulated location. Helping them all develop their confidence in themselves and each other.
As a dog trainer you have to find what works for your clients. Every dog is different and every human client is different. Cookie cutter dog training won't always cut it.

Just 3 sessions and Hook has improved greatly! His dad can now take Hook with him to home Depot to get supplies for his plumbing business and they can venture to other places they want to enjoy with Hook because they are equipped to do so. I'm proud of them!👏👏👏🙌🙌🙌

One of the questions I hear most often is: How many training sessions do you do a day?

I totally get folks trying to wrap their heads around how to approach strategizing and breaking down the amount of time they need to succeed with their dog. But...this is the wrong way to view the big picture of training and life with your dog. It's not a session or a set aside time, it's life. All the moments are training. Of course, if you're working on a new, actual behavior you can dedicate a few sessions a day to that specific development, but too many folks are viewing overall training/life as something you do and then don't do. We're training, we're not training.

If you think about living well with your dog - creating solid manners, polite and respectful behavior, and reliable training and living skills - compare it to how you'd go about doing the same with a child. Of course there would be specific teaching moments, but you wouldn't schedule raising you kid with two 25 minute sessions. Of course not. You'd teach specifics when necessary, but the majority of life would be taught in the cracks. The other moments. The "life" moments.

Every moment has the possibility of being a teaching moment, a value moment. Watch for it. And most importantly, view your dog and the behavior you want from him or her to be something you create in a constant flow, not a clock in and clock out. That just teaches your dog to clock in and clock out of good behavior.- By Sean O'Shea

Now, before anyone gets crazy and starts to “frenzy-type” and add lots of angry emojis, take a breath and let me explain.

If you’re looking for a great Heel, or a super reliable Recall, or a Downstay that is impervious to the chaotic world around it, training is absolutely essential. And, if you’re looking for ways “in” to help owners struggling with behavior issues, training, and the tools which often go with it, can be a huge benefit, and even a lifesaver.

My point is a simple one: most behavior issues are due to a fundamental misunderstanding, or confusion that our dogs have about us, because of us. Because we envelop them in constant affection; because we allow countless small moments which give rise to bigger ones; because when transgressions occur, we have no idea (or stomach for) how to assert ourselves and make it clear where the line is...we’ve created confusion. Our dogs, quite rightly, presume that we’re doormats, ripe for the treading, and that the environment they inhabit is ripe for whatever they decide to do with it.

Why would they think otherwise?

Of course the best approach, and best results come from traditionally understood training AND clarity about the social structure. When these are combined they’re an amazingly potent combination for great all around behavior, and a great life with your dog, but when they’re separated, one has a far greater impact and positive benefit.

You could absolutely argue that it’s all training, and in reality it is. But my point is that we prefer to lean far more heavily on the traditionally understood training, and far less so on the clarity of social structure, or less formal “training”. And the result is that the traditional training suffers without the backbone of the human defining the social boundaries without apology or timidity.

What I’m working to tease out and get folks to think about is the mindset we’ve largely set aside, or become uncomfortable with. The mindset which fuels and empowers everything else we do with our dogs—including traditional training. Because without the foundation of a clear and healthy social structure (humans lead, dogs follow), obeying commands and offering their best behavior, makes zero sense to a dog.

And given a choice between the two—traditional training without clear social structure, or clear social structure without traditional training—I’d opt for the latter every time. I wouldn’t have a highly trained dog in the traditional sense, bit I’d have a very polite, respectful, well-mannered dog that was a pleasure to live with.

But I’d never want one without the other. Which is why I share this post. Because we have no shortage of one, while the other has become almost taboo, uncivilized, and deemed unnecessary. Hopefully you’ll understand my rallying for the underdog...at least until it’s status is changed.

Commence outraged responses. 🤪

EXPOSURE TRAINING WITH HOOK

Here's some of my second session with Hook and his mom in Cocoa Beach.

We did some exposure training with Hook at his mom's place of employment. She wants to be able to bring him to work with her. We have been working on Hooks reactivity towards people and dogs and she stopped taking him to her job because he would go off into defensive fight behavior.

I'm teaching his mom how to be calm and confident and how to lead Hook into a calm state of mind, while switching and controlling his Instinctual drives, keeping his focus and engagement on her. The goal is to produce trust in her leadership and guidance in highly stimulated places as she helps him become more and desensitized and allows her to just navigate them through the environment in a healthy manner.

He had some moments of defensive barking through the process; but we were able to switch him back to pack drive and calmness quickly. Take a look at how calm and comfortable we were able to get Hook to feel. I love what I do🙌🙌🙌❤️

Owners, once you truly get that nothing changes with your dog until you change, you’ll be prepared for reality. Whether that be transforming yourself and your dog, or settling for the status quo with both of you—at least you will know precisely where you stand and also precisely what to expect.

Trainers, once you truly get that nothing you can do with a dog will actually change the dog unless its owners change, you’ll also be prepared for reality. Whether that be letting go of unrealistic expectations (and the frustration/resentment that goes with) for the undetermined, or falsely feeling like Superman/Superwoman because of what you’re capable of achieving with the dog—at least you’ll know precisely where you stand and what to expect.

If both owners and trainers agree to work within the framework of reality and the obviously observable dynamics between owner and dog—or environment and dog—then both parties can approach this dog training enterprise with clarity and healthy expectations. Which would save much disappointment, resentment, and heartache on both sides.

The upshot? Owners, unless you’re truly prepared to change whatever is required to change your dog, it’s best that you save your time, money, and hopes. Trainers, unless your owners are truly prepared to change whatever is required to change their dog (this is your job to suss out), then please save them their time, money, and hopes—and on the way you’ll save your well-being and avoid much of the emotional burnout that derails so many.

My friend David and I are helping dogs pulled off the euthanasia list. We have successfully integrated Jacks with David's pack consisting of Oreo and Baylor. Baylor had very bad resource guarding issues and even attacked David several times but because of his great big heart for dogs we were able to rehabilitate Baylor and there has not been any incidents for about more than 6 months so far. David recency has also rescued a female Put mix named Bella who is the grey dog in these videos and she was labeled dog aggressive. A few more controlled exposures and we believe she will assimilate with the pack. Our goal is to periodically pull dogs off the euthanasia list and rehabilitate them and prep them for adoption. Things are going very well so far. Jacks is basically ready for adoption through Animal Safe House Program of Brevard.

Meet one of my cutest and newest puppy clients named Basil!

Basil is going through my raising a balanced pup program.

Her parents are learning how to give leadership to Basil and how to prevent creating common un-wanted behavioral issues.

In addition to basic commands, they are learning how to give Basil Rules boundaries and limitations, how to give clear communication, how to give Basil the things she wants on their terms not hers, how to lead Basil into a calm state of mind and reward a calm state of mind. They are also learning how to teach her to wait until she is invited to receive attention and affection and not invade the space of others. She's learning Recall and loose leash walking and much more!

Basil and her parents are doing great!

My first session yesterday with With Hook.
He has leash reactivity issues, and he was rescued from a bad situation. His parents want to be able to take him places without things getting chaotic.

I'm teaching his parents Pack Leadership as well because he can be bossy and an attention getter at home after he tries to bark you out the house 🤣, but he has it mild compared to some others I have worked with. I'm working with a lot of bossy center of attention dogs lately 🤣 Overall Hook followed me very well quickly and has great potential!

Dealing with a very strong BOSSY AND ATTENTION ADDICTED Dog, who wants to be the center of attention.

Dog Training gives me access to minister to pet parents. I love when I can help them when they are at their wits end and I get to help a dog stay with their parents because I provided wisdom and a solution. What a great day 🙌

My client Melissa had her friends come over to help us teach Tatum how to be around guests.

We are teaching her to follow her mom's and her mom's Best friend Keith lead and how to wait in place until her mind is calm enough to receive affection and invitation into the space of guests.

Go to a place when told and wait to be invited or wait till someone comes to her to give her affection. If not Tatum will harass and control everyone in the room.
She has to earn more freedom. She will get there with our help.

Do you live with a very Bossy Center of Attention Dog, so you can't have guests over? I can help!

16/03/2024

So many owners who “let things go” convince themselves they’re simply being kind and loving, when in reality they’re being terribly unkind and selfish.

Is it kind and loving to not provide your dog with clear feedback about what is right or wrong, what is good or bad for them? Of course not, but it sure beats the heck out of having to do the “dirty work” of disciplining your dog.

And if you sell yourself on the right rationalization for why you allow what you allow and why you turn a blind eye to the stuff you see and know you should address—but don’t—you can convince yourself that all the difficult “dog parenting” you’re skipping is actually the decisions of the kinder, more caring, more virtuous, and of course more loving dog owner.

But the truth is, that stuff you allow and ignore isn’t actually for your dog, and it’s certainly not virtuous. How could it be? Allowing your dog to misbehave, to have a smaller micro-managed life, to needlessly struggle with anxiety and stress, to put themselves or others in danger… couldn’t be for them.

No. We all know that stuff is for you.

You avoid the structure, the rules, the enforcement… the discipline… for you, because it feels better than the alternative.

Are you kidding me?! I got to work with these two handsome dudes on Sunday?!

Meet Boomer and Sunny two really cool Golden Retrievers.

Some of the Things we are working on:

Teaching their parents how to be the calm confident assertive Pack Leaders that they deserve and need in order to thrive.

How to give and communicate rules, boundaries and limitations in a manner that dogs understand.

Invasion vs. Invitation: teaching them to respect people's space and waiting to be invited into space on their parents and the guests that may visit terms, not on their own terms.

Respecting and being careful around the littlest member of their pack family and they will learn much more, in order to create balance and harmony in the home and abroad.

Give them a chance but also give them Rules, Boundaries and limitations; also a routine and structure to follow so that they are not left confused and don't know what is acceptable and not acceptable. Don't give them free roam of all the house right away. Introduce the lay of the house gradually. Free roaming is just asking for trouble and can set the dog up to fail right away.
Dogs are territorial and if allowed to free roam before knowing the expectations we have for them can lead to them claiming certain spaces, furniture and items.
