How To Get Off-Leash Obedience For Dogs

 

HOW TO GET OFF-LEASH OBEDIENCE FOR DOGS

Comparison to Sacramento behaviorists.

LOOK AT THEIR FACES AND INTO THEIR EYES

People will tell you all kinds of things, but the dogs’ eyes don’t lie.

The dogs like and trust the trainer is how you get Off-Leash Obedience

We can train your dog too!

THE DOG MUST LIKE YOU

Bribing with food, training with shock collars and choke chains won’t get a dog to like you. 

It is really simple.  If the dog does not like you it will not listen to you off-leash is why most dog trainers fail miserably at Off-Leash Obedience.

"Stay" for 30 minutes.

If you want the same Off-Leash Obedience results with your dog, be fair and kind.

Dogs learning to wait is important.

When the relationship is right, all things are possible.

Don’t be a jerk and beat your dog if you want Off-Leash Obedience.

On the contrary, you must do a lot of loving instead and make your dog like you more than anything. 

America's #1 Off-Leash Dog Trainers.

You want dogs to feel like they are getting everything they need. 

Great Service and Excellent Results.

Have a wonderful relationship with your dog if you want Off-Leash Obedience.

Everyone knows right from wrong, but some trainers insist on training dogs with choke chains, shock collars, and food-bribery.

They learned one way and are not interested in learning anything new.

Compulsion, dominating dogs-being a jerk to them, and food-bribery work like a charm they claim, but notice how they don’t have photos and videos of 100′s of dog they trained either. 

They probably don’t have ANY photos of dogs with  Off-Leash Obedience.

Look at all the dog trainer websites. 99% have no dogs trained to show competence with Off-Leash Obedience and they still want you to hire them even though they cannot train dogs.

If the dog is trained, it does not NEED a leash.  That is the definition of “trained.”

We teach dog owners to get the same results with dogs even if they live in an apartment and have one dog.

Wrong Approaches To Dog Training

Thinking about DOG TRAINING CLASSES?

WRONG APPROACHES TO DOG TRAINING

MYTHS EXPOSED

Classes are a good place to socialize your dog.

False It sounds good though. Dogs learn to socialize with each other when they are six to eight weeks old in the litter, the Critical period. Aggression or fear very often gets much worse from well-meaning attempts to break this behavior in classes.

If you were scared of heights, would hanging you off the top of a tall building make you less or more fearful of falling? If you need to teach your dog good manners in public, remember the 3 phases of dog training–learning, correction, then distraction proofing. Classes have it backwards making it much much harder to train and socialize your dog.

 

checkmark2Classes are a good place to teach your dog to behave around distractions.

False What classes have kids on razor scooters or families having picnics, real life distractions? If you want your dog to behave around kids on razor scooters, for example, you need to train your dog first, then introduce distractions.

Classes are NOT appropriate for…

People who are easily embarrassed or have anxiety, professionals, business people, busy people, people on tight schedules, children, teenagers, the elderly, those who are frail or have disabilities, or IF YOU NEED RESULTS “NOW!”

For behavior problems, group classes are totally ineffective and often make problems worse.

Dogs often get stressed-out in classes and become withdrawn, depressed or aggressive.

If you have a small dog or a puppy, there is a good chance it will get attacked by a larger dog. People in classes often can’t control their dogs, which often slip out of their collars and attack other dogs in class.

Don’t take our word for it, go watch a class and see dogs lunging and snapping at each other!

Group classes have it backwards

Classes make dogs resistant to obedience by putting distraction first. The three phases of dog training are: #1 Learning, #2 Correction, AND THEN #3 Distraction. Classes often stress-out dogs and make them fearful or neurotic causing a host of undesirable behaviors at home such as self-mutilation and dominance.

PROBLEM: DOG OWNERS DO GET SPECIAL ATTENTION IN CLASSES

  • The trainer may ask you to leave.
  • Most people feel humiliated and embarrassed in classes and quit
  • All the other people in class may stare at you like you are mean or clueless.
  • You may be ignored and treated unfairly.

A trainer cannot solve problems in the home when she has never been there. People’s perspective, or what they say, is often the exact opposite of what a trainer sees at the home. People do not connect certain things to problems. Trainers always need to to see what is going on at the home for themselves to end troubles.

What you want to look out for

WHEN THEY SAY HOW LONG IT TAKES - It does not take a six weeks course to learn “sit”, “down”, “stay”, “heel” and “come” on a leash. We teach all this and much more in one to three lessons, and teach off-leash training in 4 or 5 lessons!

The trainer should be able to get your dog to lay down during the first lesson. There is NO EXCUSE for not being able to do this, period. If it is a 140 pound Great Dane or a Shar-Pei that bites, a good trainer can get your dog to lay down the first lesson.

Don’t endanger your dog or make it even more aggressive.

Choose a trainer who specialize in controlling undesirable dog behavior. The best dog trainers spend a lot more time with the owners than with the dogs and often have college degrees in Psychology or Counseling. Good trainers understand problems which may arise in the future and teach you to control them too.

Special Breed Trainers. . . Even if you do not have one.

Individual temperament, litter constellation, experience and genetics can account for a dog’s behavior more than what breed it is. Hence, a Poodle or a Cocker Spaniel can be much more difficult than a Pit Bull or a Doberman Pinscher. A good trainer is prepared to work with any dog breed, of any age and of any temperament. Be leery of trainers who specialize in puppies or typically “easy” dogs. Conversely, be leery of trainers who purport that their success with big dogs such as German Shepherds equates into being an expert with all dogs.

DOG TRAINING IS A PROFESSION THAT REQUIRES MORE THAN COMMON SENSE

- Just like you can’t be a doctor, lawyer, veterinarian, police officer, etc. by only possessing common sense, neither can you be a dog trainer/behavior consultant.

  • Amateur and hobbyist dog trainers are nice people who love dogs and care about them.
  • When you need results and are paying good money, do not be misled by them.

Why Choose Us Over Food-Bribery Trainers

You want someone who can get your dog to obey your voice quickly without yelling, violence or bribing with food. Who wants a dog who doesn’t listen unless you have treats?

Obedience is you asking your dog to do something and he does it because you say so, and not because the dog is going to get food or be punished.

Be forewarned, the words “Positive Reinforcement, Luring and Operant Conditioning.” are code for bribing with food. Folks, don’t waste your time and money on this nonsense and call us to learn how to train your dog fast without food or violent methods. The cruelest method is the one where the dog never gets trained and the dog no longer respects the owners and is biting people as a direct result of owners trying to train their dog with food. Then the dog has to be euthanized.

If you do not see dramatic results during the first lesson, you probably never will. Either it happens right away or it probably will not ever.

HAGEN THE GOLDENDOODLE

ABOUT THE MOST AWESOME DOG EVER

Training your Goldendoodle

Hagen the 15-week Labradoodle is a really great puppy and has come a long way in a very short time.

HAGEN THE GOLDENDOODLE

Hagen was a little unruly at first but is taking to the structure and order well.

GOLDENDOODLE IN THE POOL

Hagen is learning it isn’t just all about him.

Hagen4

It is a lot more fun being part of something greater than yourself…

Hagen5

. . . with someone even greater than yourself.

Hagen6

That there is a new puppy in the yard makes the ball even more enjoyable for Archie the Border Collie.

Hagen7

Hagen learned a couple obedience commands today too.

Hagen8

“Sit-Stay, “No” and “Leave It”

Hagen9

“Down” and “Down-Stay”

Hagen10

“Zoey” the dog on the left just got here a few hours ago from China and didn’t even know sit.  In addition to “Sit” and “Down,”  She will even hold a “Stand-Stay” now.

Hagen1

Doing the right thing is a little scary at first, but doing the right thing is a reward in itself.

YOU SHOULD HIRE DAVID BARON AND SUPERDOG.

Everything in life worth having has a price. Sometimes you get lucky though and things turn out better than you ever could have imagined, and ultimately the price you pay is small compared to what you get.

Choosing a Dog Trainer

CHOOSING A DOG TRAINER

CHOOSING A DOG TRAINER

CHOOSING A DOG TRAINER

How can you tell if a dog trainer you are considering hiring is competent and reliable?

Cap15

These are typical results you can expect to achieve with your dog if you hire Superdog.

You should be able to go to Starbuck’s or a crowded hotel lobby and have your dog behave.

Cap12

Regardless of what they tell you, Food-Bribery training never works to solve behavioral problems.

If their training worked, Petco would have hundreds of photos of dogs trained off-leash like Superdog. So would our other competitors.

Cap14

Most dog trainers and behaviorists have virtually no photos of trained dogs to substantiate their competence.

Superdog has 1000′s of pictures with hundreds of trained dogs we trained.

Cap13

Being a nice person, loving dogs and having people say nice things about you is different from having thousands of photos of hundreds of dogs you trained to substantiate your competency as a dog trainer.

Cap1

Most people hire Superdog, not because they are lonely and looking for something to do on a Saturday.

People hire Superdog because they are busy and need their dog(s) trained. They are not going to waste their time on trainers with NO END RESULTS to show.

Cap2

It is inexcusable that a dog trainer should offer references from friends as a substitute for photography to prove their training actually works.

Cap3

There are no excuses. Everyone has a camera and/or a cellphone with a camera nowadays.

Cap4

“I personally guarantee that you if you follow my instructions and practice just a few every day that you too will have photos like these with you and your dog(s).” David Baron

Cap7

I personally trained most of the dogs on this website myself, but my trainers in the other cities are getting the same results as I do in Sacramento.

dogs on heel image

You don’t need to own a German Shepherd or a Golden Retriever if you want a well-trained dog.

Cap9

Most people own their dogs a decade or more.

Cap10

Everything in life worth having has a price.

Sometimes you get lucky though and things turn out better than you ever could have imagined, and ultimately the price you pay is small compared to the alternatives.
