How to choose a the right dog trainer for you?

CHOOSING A DOG TRAINER

How you can tell if a dog trainer is competent and reliable, or not?

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.

A Better Person And Dog Trainer

ALLELOMIMETIC BEHAVIOR

When The People Change, Dog Problems End

aggressive pit bull image

Usually the folks who seem to do best with dog training, in business, and in life, are remarkably normal, well-adjusted and present themselves as mature and emotionally stable.

 

checkmark2 They usually seem happy and content and act like they are going to have a wonderful day–regardless of what other people say or do.

 

checkmark2 They don’t yell, scream or get angry a lot.

 

checkmark2 They try to be a good neighbor and citizen.

 

checkmark2 They value opinions differing from their own.

 

checkmark2 Everyone pretty much knows what is expected of them and accepts responsibility.

 

checkmark2 They try to be flexible and non-judgmental when  others fail to meet their expectations.

 

checkmark2 They try to be fair and admit mistakes.

 

checkmark2 They seem to relax through life and are not so serious all the time.

 

checkmark2 They usually live quietly without a whole lot of drama.

PITSFLORA

The point is that nice, calm people often don’t have a whole lot of dog behavior problems like some people do–just by virtue of that they don’t have all the craziness, yelling and people and kids screaming making their dogs bonkers and neurotic.

If you want your dog to be mellow and calm, you may face a formidable obstacle if you live in a funhouse or with screaming, wild kids.

Many times when peoples’ children have Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) the family dog suffers from it too. Coincidentally, dog owners often going through marital or financial problems report that their dogs have become aggressive, edgy and/or defiant.

training pits image

The moral here is that if you want your dog to be happy, calm and friendly, the first thing to do is be a happy, calm and friendly person yourself.

Hopefully, you can get family or housemates to be happy, calm and friendly people too, if they are not already so.

PITdrive

If being well and wonderful still doesn’t seem to be enough to get your dog trained, call us when you have a few minutes to chat about dog training.

We look forward to hearing from you.

What makes our dog training method different is that what we do is mostly about getting the people to change their behavior to influence the dog.

Oasis3

Often people make a few minor changes in what they do in regard to their dog and see a big difference in the dog’s behavior immediately.

PITpool

Definitely pick up the telephone if you like what you see in my pictures and videos.  We are trying to be the best one and give people good service.

Whether you hire me, or one of my trainers in other cities, the training works just like you see in the photos and videos.

I made this website so you would not have to believe me or trust me that the training works.  The point of this website is you don’t need a German Shepherd.  If you have a Beagle, Husky, a Yorkie, whatever dog you have, we can train your dog to the same level of obedience on and off-leash.

Don’t be shy.  The training works like a peach.  The best money you will ever spend.

Training Your German Shepherd Dog

All About Training Your German Shepherd Dog

N24

German Shepherds are one of my favorite dogs, but they are not for everyone though.

N25

If you want a dog that does not shed much, then you probably do not want to own a German Shepherd.  

Of course, you could always brush and groom your German Shepherd to reduce the amount of shedding hair, but that would require a few minutes of work.

It may seem silly to you thinking of brushing your dog as work, but some people who own dogs do not want to do any work.

N22

A lot of German Shepherds like to chase cats.

N26

A lot of people tell me, “Be careful Dave, he is a cat killer,” but actually, most are cat chasers, not cat killers. 

Someone forgot to tell my cats that they are supposed to be afraid of dogs and they do not run away, so dogs do not chase them.

You should not allow your dog to fixate and obsess on cats, or other small animals.  Allowing this behavior just makes them crazy and promotes not listening and being crazy.

N9

A lot of people say German Shepherds are the best dogs.

However, the point of this website is ‘you don’t need a German Shepherd.’  I can train other breeds just as well.  

For example, a Chihuahua can be trained to be just as fabulously off-leash obedient as any German Shepherd, or just as aggressive. 

dogtrainingelkgrove4

Chihuahuas are very protective and can be trained to bite intruders too.  Not that many people are afraid of Chihuahuas though.

N11

Both Pit Bulls and Tibetan Mastiffs like “Belle” and “Mister Puppy,” on the left, can be very protective too, but with a German Shepherd it is easier to go from being aggressive to not aggressive.

For example, a German Shepherd police dog can drag a suspect out of an attic, then an hour later go to an elementary school for a show-and-tell. On the contrary, a Pit Bull once made aggressive generally will be aggressive to most everyone except close family members or friends.

A Tibetan Mastiff owner would not want to take their aggressive dog to an elementary school in a million years.

N15

A lot of people hire me because they wanted a dog that was protective, but they failed to train their dog and instead their dog is aggressive to everyone, including friends, family members and neighbors.

The problem is that most peoples’ friends, family members and neighbors are not the ones robbing their house.  That, and aggressive dogs are not fun to be around.

A lot of my clients friends quit coming over to their houses a long time ago because their dogs make people worry that they are going to get bit.

N16

If you own a German Shepherd, or any dog really, you may want to hire a professional dog behavior expert to teach you how to have a dog that is protective, but can turn the aggressiveness and protectiveness off when around “friends.”

N19

I am a Behavioral trainer and focus on training for temperament and quality-of-interactions.

N13

I can help you to have a dog that is protective, but not a jerk to your friends, family and neighbors.

N14

A lot of dog trainers focus on getting dogs to do commands like “Sit.”  

Teaching “Sit” is kind of a waste of time in my opinion if the dog is aggressive because there is not going to be a whole lot of “Sit” when a dog is aggressive because they are so focused on being aggressive.

The distinction here is that there is a difference between a trained dog taught to be aggressive and one taught to stop being aggressive on command. Again, the difference is a trained dogs versus a dog that is crazy and just being protective and/or aggressive solely out of instinct or fear.  

With a trained dog you can turn off the aggression like flipping a switch.

N12

99% of the dog training being sold to the public does not work and is a waste of money.

That is why NONE of my competitors has 1000’s of photos and videos of trained dogs to substantiate that their training actually works.

N17

No one would hire a home improvement contractor with no photos of kitchens, bathrooms and roofs.  Everyone has a camera on their cellphone.  There are no excuses  Either a dog trainer can show you 100’s of different dogs they trained or you cannot.  There is no in-between.

References from well-meaning people and friends is not the same thing as showing prospective clients 100’s of dogs they trained.

N1

LOVE, AFFECTION, FRIENDSHIP, RESPECT, TRUST

N2

I like my training because there is a lot of petting, affection, friendship and hanging out together.

N3

Everyone says they can train dogs, but that is not the case or everyone would have photos like I do to prove it and substantiate their claims of efficacy.

N4

Better to hire the best dog trainer the first time and not waste money on something that is not going to work.

A dog trainer’s website is their best foot forward.  What does it say when the website does not show many dogs off-leash trained?  It says someone thinks you are stupid and do not know any better.  They collect your money up-front and then when you complain they say it is your fault or that your dog can’t be trained and should be euthanized.

Again, 99% of dog training is a waste of money and the trainers are basically taking dog owners’ money without delivering much of anything in exchange.

N5

I made this website so prospective clients would not need to believe me or trust me that the training actually works.

The level of obedience you see in my photos and videos are typical results that you can expect if you hire me or one of my trainers.

N6

Good dog training is one of the best investments one can make in their family and home life.

N7

Dogs are much happier trained and so are their owners.

N8

Whether you own a German Shepherd of a scruffy little dog or other breed, training will make you and your dog much happier.

IMG_7901-2

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

N27Better to hire the best dog trainer the first time.

Multiple-dog household in Roseville, CAEven if you live in an apartment and just own one dog, I will teach you to get the same results as I do.

How to train Small and Toy Breeds

SMALL, TOY & MINI BREEDS
Little Dogs Being Really Good!

Best Small Dog Trainers

Maltese

“Lilly” the Maltese is about two years old and “Roxy” the Maltese-Papillon mix is 10 years old. This is their first day of training.

That little dogs are good and don’t bark incessantly was an issue.

What you see here is pretty good considering Lilly and Roxy were big zeros and had no training prior to today.

MALT3

Teaching little dogs “Down” can be a hardsell with them refusing to do it and throwing a fit. No one took pictures of that.

MALT4

“Kyla” the Ibizan is a good girl too.

MALT5

“Mister Puppy” and the little dogs are exhausted from all the obedience.

MALT7

Lilly and Roxy no longer lose their minds and go insane whern they see cats. In just a few hours time they learned cats are good and we love them.

MALT8

The animals are always attracted to the grave stone for some reason.

MALT9

Lily and Roxy learn to trust that being obedient is a much better way of living.

MALT10

We are glad that people bring us their little dogs for training.

maxblaze

Siberian Huskies are good and we love them a lot too.

Small Dogs Being Good image

No one loves small dogs more than us.

chi9

We love our little dogs and there is a lot of affection and petting.

Dogs in the pool image

They aren’t stupid little dogs. Everything you can do with a German Shepherd you can do with little dogs.

Dogs in the Pool image

The point of this website is you don’t need a German Shepherd or large breed to have a well-trained companion animal.

recon2

Whether you need a service dog, a great house pet or an obedient traveling companion, no one gets better results with small dogs or loves them more.

niko99

Don’t sell your little dog short. Again, everything you can train a German Shepherd to do you can do with a Chihuahua or other small dog breed.

Method6

Superdog’s behavioral training program is not as much about commands as it is about improving the quality of interractions and temperament.

chihuahuas in the pool image

DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS!

Chihuahuas sink like lead weights and are not buoyant at all should they fall in.

chihuahuas

No one is better at potty training small dogs.

chi6

Superdog is a behavioral trainer and focuses on temperament and interactions.

chihuahuas image

Superdog gets the same results with small and toy breeds as we do with large dogs.

chihuahuas

Believe it or not, some toy breeds and little dogs are so vicious that they would try to kill a Rottweiler. If they were the size of other dogs they would be the most vicious thing on the planet.

Call us and don’t listen to people who tell you that your dog can’t be trained and that you need to euthanize it.

We get great results with fearful, reactive and territorial small dogs.

chihuahuas on the bed

Little dogs are often a dichotomy because they are so lovable on the one hand, but can be so aggressive on the other. Almost every dog on this page was aggressive.

chi8

A superdog trainer can help you if your little dog has anxiety, aggression, or is fearful or extremely reactive.

small2

For dogs that are fairly normal, happy and well adjusted, we can help you achieve a model citizen who is reliable everywhere, everytime, with everyone—on or off of a leash.

These are typical results most dog owners can expect with our program.

But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who’s ever lived: I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.”

Amazing behavioral results regardless of size and age.

David Baron the Dog Trainer

1-1-1-IMG_5553

I was born to be a dog behavioral trainer and train dogs.  I love what I do helping dogs and their owners.

I have never been very religious, but I judge a tree by its fruit.

I always figured others judged things the same way too so I took pictures of all the ‘dog training fruit’ so I could show people and say ‘This is what you get if you hire me, a dog as good or better than any on my website or my Facebook page.’

Just like Santa Claus lives at the North Pole and has reindeer and elves, I too cheerfully accept my fate training dogs in Roseville, California.

Dave the Dog Trainer

I am able to get most any dog to listen to its owner off-leash, and am able to help the most difficult and/or aggressive dogs.

DavewithMena

Other people train dogs too, but my clients are getting the same results as I do.

I used to not know anything about dogs, but had the fortune to learn from the greatest dog trainer and behavioral expert ever.

The person was there for me when I needed him the most. Now, I am here for others.

I get the same Off-Leash results with small dogsPit BullsHuskies and even sighthounds not just German Shepherds and Rottweilers.

off-leash training image

Like any endeavor in life, with the right attitude you always have the right voice, body language, posture and timing.

dave9

I am not a “Dog Whisperer.” That implies one has an innate and extraordinary ability with dogs. Some peoples’ dogs respect, trust and respond to them because the person has been taught certain things.

What I teach is mostly about a method with a curriculum.

dave1

Personally, I am very pragmatic and get bored easily when things don’t work. I’m from the school of either it works or it doesn’t.

dave10

Dogs seem much happier with a strong, confident owner that looks and acts like a leader to them.

dave4

I am not the kind of dog trainer who will tell you that our way is the only way, and that everyone else is wrong. I will tell you everything everybody else is doing too if you want; however, I will recommend what works and gets results.

This video has 500+ photos of dogs I trained.

JRT2

I like my Superdog program because it works and we love the dogs and there is a lot of petting and friendship.

Dave the Dog Trainer

I personally guarantee the results you see in these pictures with your dog too if you do what we say and practice a few minutes every day.

Axl is a really good boy and loves visiting his friends at DogAnswers Ranch.

A lot of American Bulldogs and bully breeds are either skittish or a little aggressive. They are one of those breeds that seems to be on one end of the spectrum or on the other.

We are behavioral trainers and can help you so your dog is not aggressive or skittish.  We train for temperament and quality of interactions.

Dogs on a lawn-image.

Everyone listens and does everything the first time they are told in a perfect world.  Most of us do not live in a perfect world though is the problem.

If everyone did everything we say the first time they were asked, life would definitely be a lot better for everyone.

Man and woman with dogs in Sacramento park setting-image.

Axl is good and helps DaveTheDogTrainer with other clients and their dogs’ lessons.

Notice how none of our competitors have photos of dogs that are trained and obedient off-leash like I do.  

I don’t have anything bad to say about anyone, just pointing out the obvious that this website has 1000’s of photos and videos of trained dogs and my competitors’ do not.

Dogs in a vineyard playing-image.

They can’t tell you what a good time is, but they know it when they are having one.

Imagine if your dog was good with other dogs and you could let it run around off-leash and it would come if you called it.

Asian dogs with Bulldog-image.

The dogs want to cooperate and like being obedient and paying attention.

Dogs are genetically programmed to follow a leader.  Dogs do not run away from a dog pack.  They run after the little animals the leader says and hunt in a pack.  That is the dog training method we use to get dogs to listen and be obedient.

PRIVATE LESSONS work great and are effective 99% of the time.  Sometimes the level of training a dog needs surpasses what the owner is capable of achieving on their own and Board Training is a more appropriate option.

Dog Behavior Problem Solving

Dog Behavior Problem Solving

Dogs in the wild are pack animals and live in well-organized hunting groups called packs.

Sometimes people bring dogs to their home and forget to tell their dog that he or she is not the pack leader.

Living with dominant dogs can be a real challenge, especially if your dog starts treating you like a dog.  Many people are surprised when their dog starts treating their other dog like a dog too.

Finn2

The camera used to shoot these photographs can shoot 6.5 frames per second. Dog trainers need cameras that are fast because Jack Russell Terriers don’t waste any time when there is a diver down.

Finn3

Finn goes under water for about 20 seconds.

Finn6

The Jack Russell “Henry” is very concerned about “Finn” the Labrador being under water.

Finn4

“Archie” the Border Collie just cares about the ball.

Finn5

Henry the Jack Russell lifeguard to the rescue. He’s a legend in his own mind, a true action hero.

Finn7

Henry dives in to rescue the big dog.

Finn8

“Hold on Finn, I’ll save you,” exclaims Henry.

Finn9

“Come to the shore now, friend!”

Finn10

“I said, get out of the spa now buddy!”

Finn11

“You need to start listening Finn.”

Finn12

“I’m not going to tell you a million times.”

Finn13

“The lady and the kids also need to do what I insist.”

Finn14

“I’m such a studmuffin.”

Finn15

Actually Henry cares for the other dogs and feels he needs to keep them safe. He threw the ball in the spa to make the other dogs fetch it.

Finn16

Finn the Lab is the new guy here at DogAnswers Ranch and Henry has taken it upon himself to mentor and look after Finn.

Finn17

Finn and Henry hang out most of the day and go everywhere in the yard together.

Finn18

Both dogs are getting what they need and are happy to have a friend.

Finn19

Finn the Lab is a great dog too. He understands that Henry is concerned and likes having a strong leader like the Jack Russell looking out for him.

All the dogs know what their role is and what the others expect of them.

Finn20

And this is what you can expect at your house with your dog(s).
