Standards For Excellence In Dog Training

Standards For Excellence In Dog Training By David Baron

checkmark2Minimum Standard of Proficiency To Demonstrate Competency Performing Obedience Commands

1) The dog will go 6 to 10 feet away from you and disengage contact,

2) The dog will hold a “Down-Stay” for  an hour, and

3) “Heel” with the nose behind your leg and will even walk 3 to 6 feet back if asked.

Standards for Excellence in Dog TrainingWhat you need to know about standards and acceptable practices by those training dogs professionally.

 1. OBJECTIVE PROOF means having a lot to show that the training actually works.

Being in business, holding weekly classes, writing a book, or even having your own radio show about dogs is different than being able to show people 1000′s of PHOTOS and VIDEOS of 100′s of dogs you trained to prove the dog training actually works.

99% percent of dog training does not work or every trainer would have many photos and videos of trained dogs to show you like I do. Notice how virtually every other dog trainer has nothing even remotely close to what I show you just on this one blog page. 

Everyone has a camera on their cell phone and their is no excuse.  Either someone can show you 100′s of dogs they trained to substantiate their competence, or they cannot.

2. “TRAINED” means the dogs are obedient off-leash with distractions present.

Dogs trained around horses

I could never understand why someone would hire a dog trainer that thinks dogs cannot be trained off-leash because “dogs are too unpredictable.”  

To me, If a dog NEEDS to be on a leash means it is not trained.

3. ALL DOG BREEDS CAN BE TRAINED, whether the dog is large or small.

You do not need a German Shepherd. Other breeds can be equally as well-trained and obedient.

MALT4German Shepherds are great, but look at how good the other dogs are.

No matter what kind of dog you have, never let a dog trainer make excuses about your dog not being able to be trained because of its breed or size.

4.  Minimum Standard of Proficiency To Demonstrate Competency Performing Obedience Commands

1) The dog will go 6 to 10 feet away from you and disengage contact,

2) The dog will hold a “Down-Stay” for  an hour, and

3) “Heel” with the nose behind your leg and will even walk 3 to 6 feet back if asked.

There is not going to be significant Obedience or behavior problem solving if your dog won’t do three things.

5. Training hyenas in Africa or dolphins at Sea World does not qualify you to train dogs.

I could never figure out why so many dog trainers used to be dolphin trainers.  After finding this photo on the internet, I think I get it now—they switched from dolphins to dogs.

maxresdefaultMaybe it is better not to ruin someone’s fun and just let them pretend they can train dogs too.  Although, I would not recommend giving them money.

I hate to judge, but some people are freaks and should not be training dogs. This page is about educating you so you do not hire them.

How Can I Get My Dog To Quit Barking?

 

How Can I Get My Dog To Quit Barking?

David Baron Sacramento

Thousands of years ago, humans began the process of domesticating the dog and shaping what “being a dog” really means. Through careful selection and breeding, an astonishing variety of dog breeds have been created. Desirable traits have been selected for in various breeds that are of a benefit to humans. There are some traits, however, that quickly become undesirable when expressed too frequently. Barking is an example of a natural behavior that is encouraged in terms of guarding behavior, but becomes a problem when the behavior is produced in excess. A recent health insurance investigation revealed that the sound of a continually barking dog was cited as the most disruptive and stress inducing noise for humans.

Method25

Why Do Dogs Bark? 

Barking, as well as whining, howling and growling, are a dog’s natural means of communication. Barking is characterized by a series of short, sharp sounds, that tend to vary little in tone or pitch. A dog’s bark can signify territorial protection, exertion of dominance, or expression of some need. Typically, barking is “a means of communication triggered by a state of excitement.” Being a natural trait, barking is not considered a behavioral problem, until it is produced in excess.

Causes of Problem Barking

Problem barking has a variety of origins. Genetics does influence a dog’s tendency to bark. Certain breeds belonging to the terrier family are prone to more frequent barking than breeds such as Greyhounds or Basenjis. Generally, however, excess barking can exist in any breed of dog. The key to solving the problem of inappropriate barking is to determine what external stimulus is triggering the behavior. Improper confinement can be a major cause of problem barkers.

Dogs eating.

Improper confinement can include leaving a dog alone in a locked room, or in a dog crate (a tool used for housebreaking and other behavioral modifications). Other improper confinements can include restricted tethering outdoors, or even an enclosed yard without proper shelter from the elements. Such confinement can cause frustration in a dog and cause it to bark excessively. Closely associated with improper confinement is lack of exercise as a cause of excess barking. When a dog is not provided with adequate exercise, pent-up energy is released through barking.

Environmental sounds can also trigger barking. These sounds include such things as the barking of other dogs, the sound of passing cars, strange voices, thunder, and mechanical noises such as the ringing of the phone. Noises can initiate barking at different times of the day. A dog may not bark at accustomed sounds during the day, but at night may be incited to a volley of barking, much to the chagrin of the neighbors, by the slightest of noises. Other causes of problem barking can include separation anxiety, or the temperament of the dog: an over-aggressive animal may bark at the smallest provocation. A strongly territorial dog may bark at any stranger, invited or uninvited, entering your property.

Solutions to Excess Barking

Excess barking can be a serious behavioral problem and can mean the termination of the relationship with your dog or the dog itself if left untreated. The following text includes information on how to solve your dog’s problem barking as recommended by the veterinary profession.

The first step in solving problem barking is to determine if your dog is barking in response to inadequate shelter or improper confinement. If this is the case, the dog must be provided with a comfortable amount of space or supplied with a doghouse if outdoor shelter is inadequate. Increasing the amount of exercise given to your dog may also help. 

In the event your dog is barking in response to environmental noises, or the barking is simply due to its temperament, behavioral modification methods should be used. These methods can include reconditioning using a verbal reprimand such as “No!”, and leash correction. It should be noted however, that you should never yell at your dog, as loud noises may encourage your pet to bark more. 

Indirect intervention methods can also be applied. These techniques can range from spraying your dog with water while it is barking, to using noise producing devices such as “Dog Stop” or “Barker Breaker,” which emit loud or high frequency sounds that interrupt and deter barking. These devices can be controlled by the owner, or triggered by the dog’s barking. In the event your dog is resistant to these behavioral modifications, more drastic action can be taken in the form of bark activated shock collars. This device is particularly effective when barking occurs in the owner’s absence. Shock collars, however, are recommended only after other control measures have failed. A final resort, when all other behavioural modification methods have been tried, and particularly when the dog’s life is in question, is a vocal cordectomy (debarking). This surgical procedure involves removal of all or part of the vocal cords.

The key to solving the problem of excess barking in your dog begins with an understanding of what is causing this behavior. Once you have determined a cause, you have a greater chance of choosing the most effective solution (e.g., more exercise) or behavioral modification. Modifying such an instinctive and natural behavior as barking can be difficult, and may require considerable patience, time, and hard work. Solutions, however, are possible, and worth the effort.

FOLSOM’S #1 DOG  BEHAVIORAL TRAINER

Dave Baron is a gifted trainer.  When we came to see him in Folsom we were desperate.  Our dog Rudy was out of control, both people and dog aggressive.  We had seen multiple dog trainers, behaviorists and even a specialist at Cornell University.  Everyone told us to put the dog down.  We were heartbroken and turned to Dave as a last resort.  When we brought Rudy to see Dave, he was highly aggressive and anxious.  After working with Dave, Rudy was sweet, well behaved and no longer dog or people aggressive.   I am so grateful to Dave for his help in saving our dog Rudy.  I think the true sign of a gifted trainer is someone who is able to transform the truly difficult cases.  Dave is a dog trainer that is continually challenging himself by deliberately seeking difficult cases, dogs that others have given up on and/or have been severely abused or abandoned.

The terms and conditions were outlined precisely before an agreement was signed. We understood clearly what our responsibilities were and we understood how David would help us achieve our objectives for our dog. He has given us clear instructions at every lesson along with a written plan to use at home between lessons. Our dog has made steady progress and is becoming the obedient dog that we were hoping for at the outset of our relationship with David Baron and Superdog. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service and would recommend Superdog to anyone seeking dog training in Folsom for their dog.

VERY PROFESSIONAL AND EFFECTIVE - We appreciate all that Dave did for us. Tahoe (our dog) is doing great now with our newborn. The training that Tahoe received allowed all of us (newborn included) to go for walks. This was right after I had surgery since he heels right behind us and does not pull at all. His off leash training has been wonderful and extremely useful. We can hardly believe how good Tahoe is now. We looked at every dog trainer in Northern California and Dave stood out by far. He was easy to understand, concise and made the training fun for us. We really felt empowered that we were taught the skills necessary to feel confident enough to have our dog under control in any situation, even if he was not on a leash. Dave was a little more money, but well worth it.

Call us if other dog trainers in Folsom, behaviorists or veterinarians tell you that your dog can’t be trained and should be euthanized. 

Training dogs not to be so aggressive.

Dave saved my dog’s life. Wilson, was completely out of control–not listening to me and behaving aggressively toward some people and many other dogs. I was worried that he would hurt someone, and thought I was going to have to put him to sleep. Nothing seemed to be working to get him under control. I started looking for a trainer who knew about aggressive dogs–and found Dave’s website. I lived at the time over 200 miles away from Folsom where Dave is. I was nervous about driving so far but Dave was the most qualified trainer/behaviorist I could find.

After the first training session with Dave, I began to see immediate, amazing results. I highly recommend contacting him if you have a challenging dog like mine. Wilson went ballistic a couple times, but Dave is incredibly experienced and it was amazing how he handled a flat-out vicious dog. Everyone said Wilson could not be trained and that he needed to be destroyed-the veterinarian, three dog trainers, a behaviorist, and Animal Control. If I’d gone to Dave before using other, ineffective training methods, I would have saved myself a lot of frustration and money. Today, Wilson is a different dog–well behaved and under control.

A MORAL IMPERATIVE. You don’t kill “your best friend” when the dog can be trained.

Doing the right thing is a reward in itself. Sometimes doing the right thing is a little scary at first, but people who do the right thing are usually always rewarded with a positive outcome.

KILLING YOUR DOG is a huge mistake you may regret the rest of your life if you have a conscience.

 

Call DAVID BARON when other dog trainers, canine behaviorists and veterinarians say your dog cannot be trained and you should kill it.D11

Killing anything is wrong and you may be asked to account for putting down a dog that loved you and counted on you, when you can keep your dog alive.

People who do the right thing will always be able to look their children in the eye.

WHAT PROFESSIONAL DOG TRAINING LOOKS LIKE

9-21-13

99% OF DOG TRAINING DOESN’T WORK

Everyone has a camera on their cellphone. Either a dog trainer has 1000′s of photos and videos to substantiate the dog training actually works, or they do not.

There is no in-between. The dog training works or it doesn’t.

Method26

If 99% of dog training did work all the other dog trainers would have 100′s of dogs off-leash obedient they trained to show you too.

There are no other dog trainers we can find in North America with as much to show dog owners thinking of hiring a dog trainer.

We don’t have anything bad to say about anyone.

Ask other dog trainers why DAVID BARON is the only dog trainer in North America with 1000′s of photos and videos of dogs BIG and small off-leash.

DAVID BARON is the only dog trainer in North America with 1000′s of photos of dogs BIG and small off-leash.

Why not hire an awesome dog trainer the first time?

No other dog trainers have are as successful with small dogs and toy breeds.

Again, we do not have anything bad to say about anyone.

THESE ARE TYPICAL RESULTS CLIENTS CAN EXPECT

We are just wondering why DAVID BARON is the only dog trainer in North America with 1000′s of photos of 100′s of dogs big and small off-leash.

The point of these photos is to show you DAVID BARON can train dogs and is getting much better results than 99% of other dog trainers.

DAVID BARON can train your dog no matter how bad the do might seem to you.

No one has more experience with aggressive dogs and gets better results training aggressive dogs than DAVID BARON.

A lot of our clients live on ranches and their dogs getting along with farm animals is a concern.

DAVID BARON can definitely help you with that too and has a lot of direct experience because he lives on a ranch too in Roseville, California.

There is a reason other dog trainers do not have pictures of dogs with farm animals.

The dog training has to work is one reason.

The other reason is “Sit” in the kitchen with treats is a lot easier to accomplish than showing the public Chihuahuas and Siberian Huskies off-leash with horses.
