Behavior Modification is a common topic in the dog training world. It could mean the dog has fear issues, aggression issues, separation anxiety, or many other symptoms. No matter what the symptom is, 99.99% is created by the dog’s environment. Dogs are products of the environment they live in and they are creatures of habit. In some rare instances, there are dogs that are wired in a certain way at birth. But for the most part that isn’t the case.
This is Magnus. He’s in our two-week Board and Train, which is our Dog Training and Boarding program. After training in our facility, we talk our doggie trainees outside into the “real world”. This puts the training into practice. In this video, we are walking through Home Depot.
Aggression is one of the worst behavioral problems dogs can have. It’s obvious that this will result in serious injury to anyone around them as well other pets, and it might even get you fines or have your dog put down if it acts out with aggressive action!
This video is an actual training class with one of our dogs, Jax, a beautiful Golden Retriever. This is a private class but our student dog is getting some help from some of his canine friends. This type of dog obedience training is to help simulate real-world situations.
Caesar Learning How To Place During Off-Leash Training
In this video, Caesar, a Rottweiler, is having an important lesson. This is an off-leash training and he is also practicing to “Place” (ie, “stay”). First, he learns the command while on a leash inside our building. Next, he learns the command “off-leash”. Once he has that mastered, let’s take him out to the “real world”. After all, that’s the real test.
