Dog Aggression Training Sacramento
DOG AGGRESSION TRAINING
THE EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES.
Does this make sense to you?
How is giving treats for everything and taking an aggressive, stubborn, fearful or dominant dog to obedience classes supposed to control an aggressive dog, or stop behavior problems in the home? Treat training and violent leash corrections often destroys respect for the owner and makes dogs even more unpredictable and aggressive.
Almost always the level of training an aggressive dog needs surpasses what most “professional dog trainers” are even capable of achieving.
Most people are not dog trainers and have a hard time getting their dog trained even if they take lessons or classes because 99% of what most dog trainers teach does not work and is ineffective for non-aggressive dogs, much less aggressive ones.
Do not give up on your dog or listen to dog trainers, behaviorists and veterinarians who tell you that your dog cannot be trained and needs to be destroyed, we can train your dog.
We probably can’t make your dog like a happy-go-lucky Labrador puppy that loves everyone, but we can definitely show you how to get your dog under control and stop barking, growling, lunging or other aggressive behavior.
Read below the steps to take to get your dog under control if it is aggressive or dominant.
Mostly the owner and family members get bit.
Happy, Pedro, Max, Kix, Mika and Archie
“Better not touch the ball,” says Archie.
Mister Snap Snappy will bite you!!!
He was actually really loving and very affectionate.
Archie was the classic dominant dog and could be very intimidating for sure.
If you are reading this you probably have a dog that is aggressive, either toward people or other animals.
The bottom line for training any dog is that the dog must be under control.
How you get your dog under control:
1) Your dog must stop and pay attention to you, irregardless of the distraction,
2) Your dog must be able to lay down and stay for at least an hour to be psychologically submissive to you,
3) Your dog must be comfortable walking 4 feet behind you or more to be subordinate,
4) You must be able to back your dog down and it must defer to your judgement and orders.
But you ask, “Isn’t that the same as Basic Obedience?”
If your dog won’t walk behind you four feet as a training exercise or “Stay” for an hour while you watch TV, you are not going to be able to stop your dog from biting or being aggressive otherwise.
Contrary to what many believe, nearly all aggressive dogs have been well socialized and very often have advanced obedience training. The reason why the dog starts disrespecting the owner and turns aggressive to humans is because the owner almost always does not know how to properly manage the dog and back up commands.
Most Dog Trainers Are Totally Unprepared To Encounter A Truly Vicious Dog. If your dog bites an ill-prepared dog trainer, in California you can be liable just like if your dog bit a stranger on the street.
Stray dogs prefer to bite extremities, especially fingers. Owned dogs tend to bite heads and faces.
With children, vicious stray dogs tend to bite hands because they are moving. Owned dogs more often aim for the face and particularly the mouth when they bite children.
BEWARE of “Dog Behaviorists“
Sad are the stories about distraught dog owners having a behaviorist tell them that they should euthanize their dog “because it is AGGRESSIVE.”
Many often many of these dogs are just puppy play-biting, teething or just doing what untrained dogs do. How can a 10-week-old puppy be aggressive and need to be destroyed? Obviously dog aggression is not that big of a problem for dog owners who get their dogs trained. Behaviorists do not train dogs and Food-Bribery is cute pet tricks not obedience.
Just because someone wears a lab coat and has college degrees doesn’t make them effective, legitimate or ethical. People deserve more than blah, blah, blah and then get sent home with a Gentle Leader and told to give their dog treats for everything.
– Drugging dogs is not a solution and we have never seen it work except for anxiety. Most behavior veterinarians push drugs like they are candy for behaviors that should be dealt with by training the dog.
Behaviorists do not train dogs. Their job is not getting dogs to do things like dog trainers. If the person doesn’t train dogs you might as well just go buy Dog Training for Dummies. Why would you hire someone who doesn’t even train dogs? To learn interesting and fascinating things that don’t work in real-life?
Who cares if they have a book deal or are a certified behaviorists if they can’t train your dog?
We’ll give you a lot more than a hug and encouragement. We get your dog to “Down-Stay” for an hour and walk behind you subordinately on “Heel.” Blah, blah, blah is going to get you absolutely nowhere if you can’t get your dog on “Heel” and “Down” and “Stay” in two or three lessons.
Better to get the good dog trainer the first time. The dog trainer needs to get the dog to lay down and walk behind you or you are just throwing away money on an amateur or a con artist. Call us first. We’ll get the job done.
We care and want to help. There is all the help in the world here if you don’t want to euthanize your dog.
