“What I’m About To Reveal To You Is An EASY & PROVEN SOLUTION To Help You Eliminate ALL Of The Toughest And Most Stubborn Dog Issues You And Your Dog Are Facing Right Now…”
Yelling At Your Dog or Using Shock Collars Is NOT The Solution…
It’s amazing how many dog owners think that if they are forceful enough with their dog, yell at them more, or even resort to hitting them or using shock collars that they will finally learn to behave. This is just sad.
“Do you really think a dog that’s treated this way will WANT to behave or even respect you?”
How do you think they will feel when they see you? Instead of looking at you as their master, they will simply fear you. There is no love in this dog training approach. In fact, it’s not training at all!
With what I’m about to teach you, you won’t have to resort to yelling or hitting your dog, or even using those downright cruel training devices that use shock therapy.
I NEVER advise using any of these methods to train your dog…
There are easier and more loving ways to train your dog than resorting to animal cruelty. And in the next few minutes, I’m going to reveal to you my highly effective dog training methods that will finally train your dog…the right way.
But first let me EXPOSE to you the wrong way to train your dog…
Don’t Fall For These OUTRAGEOUS LIES and Dog Training MYTHS!
I can’t believe that these MYTHS are still being peddled by the pet industry and professional dog trainers. It makes me sick to my stomach. And every year, a new “quick-fix” product or “fast-results” training method hits the streets.
It’s a MULTI-MILLION Dollar industry and so many of the ‘celebrity’ trainers endorse them, however to me, these methods almost border on TORTURING your dog.
Don’t be tempted by any of these 7 MYTHS:
MYTH #1: “The Best Solution To Stop Dog Barking Is Using a Shock Collar.”
FACT: A shock collar is a small electrical box that’s attached to a dog’s neck. When the dog barks, they are then “corrected” by being shocked with low current electricity. Now this may not sound painful, but it is. I’ve tested one on myself, on the lowest setting, and it literally brought me to tears. Imagine how a dog feels. It’s just sad, cruel, and it breaks my heart that these devices are even still being sold. Not only do they inflict pain and cause a great amount of stress for a dog…but they also don’t work on a large percentage of dogs. Why? Because these dogs either bark through the pain or simply become frustrated and remain silent. It’s just sad all around. Training a dog with the use of pain is not only flat out cruel, it’s just not effective in the long run. There are so many more effective (and humane!) methods that I’d love to show you…then you can bin this piece of equipment!
MYTH #2: “Shouting or Screaming To Train A Dog Is Actually Ok.”
FACT: Many frustrated dog owners believe that its necessary to shout loudly at their dogs or so that they’ll listen to them and respect them. But what these dog owners quickly find out is that this does NOT work. The more you shout at a dog, the more they become immune to it over time. Eventually dogs learn to completely ignore all their commands making them look like a fool (and a rather mean dog owner as well!). The real trick to training a dog properly has nothing to do with shouting or screaming. It has everything to do with gaining your dogs TRUST so they CHOOSE to obey you. Nothing more.
MYTH #3: “Using a Dog ‘Clicker’ Is Essential To Successful Dog Training.”
FACT: You’ve probably seen those little clicking devices that dog owners can click when a dog does something good. They then follow up the “click” and reward the dog with a treat to train them positive behaviors. Unfortunately, as much as this seems to make sense, this method of training totally misses the point. Dogs are extremely smart and highly intuitive animals, and using a “clicker” to communicate with your dog is not only not needed, but it really complicates the situation. I’ve literally worked with THOUSANDS of dogs and never had the need to use a clicker to communicate and train a dog…ever. Using a clicker gets in between you and the relationship with your dog. So ask yourself the question…Do you really want to carry a clicker everywhere you go? And have a dog that only follows commands when you use one? I’m sure you don’t. Skip the clicker and stop wasting your time.
MYTH #4: “Older Dogs Are ‘Set In Their Ways’ and Can’t Be Trained.”
Fact: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is the timeless saying you’ve probably heard a million times. But the truth is this age-old quote is simply not true. Several years ago I visited a dog training conference in which a popular dog trainer from the USA said that dogs over 8 months old became very hard to train! Not only that but he stated that once they moved past the 1 year mark their behaviors were basically set for life. Not so!
The problem was he was using outdated training methods (the ol’ chicken and cheese approach) and he basically admitted he had no idea how to train older and “more difficult” dogs. The funny thing is, not only do I find training older dogs just as easy as younger ones, in most cases they respond even BETTER than younger dogs. So don’t believe everything you hear. I’ve worked with thousands of dogs, many who’ve had behavioral problems for over 10 years or MORE and I’ve still been able to train them with my methods. The lesson? You CAN teach old dogs new tricks…if you know how to do it correctly. I’ll show you how.
MYTH #5: “To Gain A Dog’s Respect, You Must Physically Correct and Dominate Them.”
FACT: Just like yelling or screaming at a dog (and even using a shock collar), being physical with them and trying to dominate them is totally useless and downright cruel. Where’s the love and respect in that? There is none. Think about it. Have you ever respected anyone who physically forced you to do something? Nor me. One of the biggest secrets to training a dog of any age is EARNING their respect, not FORCING them to respect you out of fear or with pain. Respect is a choice that’s not earned by being a doggy dictator. Fear does not equal respect. When you know how to properly win a dogs respect, they’ll trust you for the rest of their lives AND be more attentive when it comes to proper training.
MYTH #6: “A Dog Trainer Can Completely Train Your Dog For You.”
FACT: Ugh, this myth is something that really just gets me every single time. Many dog owners think that they can simply hire a dog trainer, and let them do all the hard work, and the dog will be magically trained. Would you hire someone to “train” your own child and then expect your child to follow your commands or obey you? Of course not! The same holds true for dogs. The idea of turning over a problematic dog to trainer, and them returning the dog “Trained!” and all ready to go, is total rubbish. It just doesn’t work that way. Dogs are not robots. As mentioned in Myth #5 above, the big secret to training success is earning your dog’s trust and respect. That’s what’s at the very heart of all my unique training methods and that’s what makes them work so amazingly well!
MYTH #7: “If A Dog Can’t Be Trained…Something’s Wrong With The Dog.”
FACT: After all my years of training some of the most difficult and stubborn dogs, of all sizes, shapes and breeds, I’ve never seen a dog that has something wrong with them that makes them un-trainable. NOT…ONE…SINGLE…TIME. The problem is never the dog. The real problem is what the trainer or dog owner is doing. This should be great news for any frustrated dog owner who thinks that something is wrong with their dog. This means no more wasting hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, on vet visits or even Prozac for dogs. You can’t change a dog’s personality, but YOU can train them when you know how. And that’s exactly what I’ll show you how to do, step-by-step, with my proven methods.
