The 10 Biggest Myths About Dog Training

The 10 Biggest Myths About Dog Training

There are a lot of conflicting opinions and myths about dog training out there and most of them are not right.
In this article ,Doggy Dan will tell about his
real experiences he got by working with dogs
and really understanding them.

1. It takes a lot of time to train a dog

This is not true .It can be very easy when you know how
It is not necessary to spend a lot of time in obedience
classes for dogs and walk in circles by bad weather.
This is the old way and a waste of time. Dogs are easy going
animals ,they like to walk and be trained once a day,but they
also, like to sleep a lot.
If you have been doing classes and your dog is still not obedient
then something is wrong.

See the solution here > Doggy Dan

2. Only one person can be a pack leader

Dogs can respect all people in a house and listen to them ,if they
are calm and gentle, the dog will listen to the commands. It is not                                                 true that a dog only listens to one master.

Watch at Doggy Dans site ,how to get to be a pack leader                                                                   click here

3. It is necessary to attend a puppy school

Usually, puppy schools are not effective at all,they are not a good
investment. Most of the time the puppy owners only sit around and
get to know other puppies .The only thing they learn is usually “sit”.
The important things are left out .Gaining knowledge about a dog
and understanding would be more important.

4. Good dog training is expensive

A lot of money is spent on training classes with very
poor advice and People do not know where to get quality training
for an affordable price. After attending expensive classes
the dog is still a nightmare for them.

Here is one of the best dog training programs on the market
and not expensive at all

5. A dog only can be trained in a positive way

But this is often not a complete solution.Often it is needed
to step in and stop bad behavior.It is very important to
understand the dog and get it to behave in a positive and
loving way.No need to hurt ,but more than only rewards are needed.
A dog is like a child and needs praise ,but also you need to stop
bad actions and use timeouts to make him think over.
Treats often are used incorrectly and do not solve the problem.

6. Never use food treats

Treats used the right way to the right time ,can be powerful helpers,
but in more than 250 videos Doggy Dan shows how to use them effectively
and also learn what to do so you do not need them.

7. Old dogs can not learn new tricks

Dogs are always ready to learn and like to relax and have a pleasant
life,but for this, you need to know them well and be able to
communicate with them.

See how to do this here

8. Practice and hard work are needed

If training is done in a right way ,your dog will obey easily.
Dogs are very smart and will behave in a matter of minutes if you
are able to communicate right with them and are the leader.
Work smart not hard .

9. Small dogs are easier to train

It does not matter if big or small,it is like with people

we can not judge them by size!

10.Trouble making dogs are stupid

Not true,many of this dogs are very clever.we only need to learn
to understand these intelligent creatures.

How To Potty Train Your Puppy – Puppy Toilet Training

Puppy Toilet Training

Puppy Toilet Training

Nothing is worse !

The sun is shining when you wake up , another beautiful day.
But you discover your puppy rolling in his poo when you come out of your bedroom ! Hmmm.

Everywhere the same.

Clean up takes at least 30-45 min and you are going to be late today for sure.

This is very frustrating!

Take your puppy outside to pee-pee and you return inside after.
Only seconds later your dog continues with sprinkle all over your rug.


Puppy toilet training  should not take long or be hard?

Right. It isn’t.It is this…

No magic wand will turn your puppy’s toileting around but there are a lot of little tricks that and you are not using most of them.

The crazy thing is that Most people don’t do anything because they never have been told what to do. Nobody has explained these important little things about your puppy’s toilet training.

They are all easy all logical. Let me show you in the right way with some of them and you can get the idea and I will tell you the most awesome toilet training resource that I found .

1. Stay calm:

Firstl you have to accept that you are responsible. Training a baby to use a potty is likely the same. You can’t blame them not being toilet trained and your can not get mad on them.

Becoming angry and shouting at your puppy and being mad will do nothing to train them to relax and listen to your command to do the toilet outside!

Think of trying to go to the toilet with an angry person , staring at you!

It is simply so out of date , rubbing a dog’s nose in its pee,that is rubbish . People who do this, have totally missed the point.

Think about it…

Why does your puppy pee in the house?

It needed to go. Right?

“OK, I gotta go pee-pee…right NOW!” They are maybe bursting and holding and need to go.

The door was shut as well, what do you expect?

When you rub your puppy’s nose in it…it is still not sure where it is supposed to go.

Repeat…It is still not sure where it is supposed to go.

Got it now?

You start telling your puppy off for going pee-pee on the couch you ar telling your puppy , not on this place. Go somewhere else…


“It is still not sure where to go!”

Right. You need to show them where to go and this is puppy toilet training.

2. Focus on the goal:

Its odd that the biggest mistake that people make with toilet training is the most important one. They take too soon their eye off the goal, start telling poor puppy off when they get it wrong. This is the secret ….

Every time they go toilet in the right place, reward your puppy with good treats ,…

That’s right. With good treats, every time and a long time!

This will motivate the puppy faster than rewarding them with a couple of amazing tasting little treats immediately after they have finished.

Notice I say immediately. Not 30 seconds later… It should be within 2 seconds. The connection to the pee-pee they just did will be lost,if its too late. They will very quickly start to link the two,if they get their treats very quickly .


Your puppy thinks Ah-Ha … “So if I pee-pee on the grass you give me the most amazing treat?” “OK…Deal!”

Most of us will only reward for a week or two and then stop,
because we forget about.

On a great 40 minute toilet training audio the other day I heard, to leave a jar with treats outside by the pee-pee area so that even if you forget to take treats out with you there are already some at hand.

3. It does take time

Remember that puppies are still young and learning.

Puppy toilet training takes TIME and PATIENCE! Sometimes 3 years or more for young children.

Think about this for a second.

Your puppy may be 16 weeks old ! Children can’t even lift their own heads at that age and we become frustrated that our puppy is not perfectly toilet trained by that age…

So take a breath and relax. The good news is that you can do it and your puppy is perfectly normal.

So focus on the success. It is learning for life, see what you could have done different.

4. The rug

This is a little tip I heard from that audio file I mentioned earlier that I’ll tell you about, it is exactly what happens all the time.

Here’s the scenario…

Your puppy finds a nice thick piece of rug it feels good, like gras, a good place to go pee-pee, or even worse poo-poo!

It is your new, thick, white, shag pile rug and its very hard to get the stains and smell out of.

Your puppy can still smell the pee and poo even when cleaned,and so now it smells like a good place to go and your beautiful shag pile rug is a very costly toilet mat.

They secret is simple. Pick it up and put it back down in 6 months time .

5. Knowledge is everything:

When it comes to toilet training there really are so many things to think about and you will simply not think of them all . You need to be told the secrets before your toileting goes pear-shaped.

And the best place that I have found by far to get hold of all the tips about dog and puppy training including toilet training is Doggy Dan’s website The Online Dog Trainer 

Inside the site are over 250 videos including a whole section with an amazing 40 minute recording on puppy toilet training ,its all that you could possibly want to know.

What’s inside?

– Those tricky times. What to do during the night and when you are at work . How long can you leave them alone.

– How to make your puppy win and make no mistakes.

– How to get them back on track if they regress at 4 months old .

– Older dogs. Why much older dogs who are several years old can suddenly start going toilet in the house and what to do to stop it.

– Habit Breaking. How to break an old habit if your puppy is toileting all over the house.

– Crate training. Everything you need to know about crate training your puppy if you choose to use that approach.

Plus all the tips, and advice on every topic to do with toilet training and schedules.

So that’s all for now. I hope you get a handle on your puppy’s toilet training sooner rather than later.

End the frustration, I suggest you take a look at Doggy Dan’s site The Online Dog Trainer and check out the Toilet Training section inside the site.

How To Make A Dog Stop Pulling On The Leash

dog pulling leash

     dog pulling on the leash

Is your shoulder sore or weak from your dog pulling you and yanking down the street?

Me, me, me, I hear you cry! Millions of people can’t enjoy their walk with their dog ,because their are pulling on the leash.

Why not train your dog to walk without pulling on your site so you can enjoy your walk with no hassle!

What do you think? Its not complicated at all! It may take a little time, but it would be worth mastering. Expert Dog Trainer, Doggy Dan, demonstrates in his video, it can be a 5 minute turnaround . CLICK HERE > Video

Let me first tell you first some of the key mistakes that people a make when walking their dog.

As I mentioned before there are a lot of tricks how to walk your dog on the leash correctly , that he walks beside you. If you have a determined dog, (and they maybe both big and small size) you need to know all of them to you master the walk.

But generally , the tips I am giving you now will really help… So lets get started and get into the training.

To keep your dog calm is the most important thing to remember . If your dog is like a raging bull when you go out of the gate, like the one in the video ,it is going to be much harder to get them to walk nicely without pulling on the leash .
Calm them down! But how ? I hear you cry…

Alright, alright, I will tell you…

1. Calming your dog down.
Think about how you leave the house. You bring the leash and BANG! Your beautiful dog becomes a rocket. He jumps up, tail wagging, runs around and demands to put the leash on . Now …if you put the leash on your dog he gets even more excited!

Simple why? The lead you give him as a reward is what makes him excited. And his behavior gets more and more extreme. He becomes more excited .

Same thing happens as your dog drags you towards the door, barging his way along first and pulls you down the path. This makes your dog even more excited. He will be bursting when you get on the path!

Take your time next time you go for a walk with your dog . Take the leash and wait until the dog to calms down. Right. do what you were doing , continue and ignore your dog. If he does not calm down put the leash away .

It can take a little while, or maybe a long period, but your dog calms down after a few attempts. When he is calm , try again and repeat until he is totally relaxed when you take the leash.

Repeate this process until you are ready to start your walk. Wait calmly with your dog on the leash until he calms down before continuing or take the leash off and wait a few minutes.

Take some time to get this right now or you are going to be dragged around for ever. This issue is not “self correceting”.

Step two is an easy exercise you have to turn around when the dog pulls .

2. Change direction
Before you start , look which way the dog is heading. If he wants to go right, you turn left. Step to the left and repeat this until he is taking notice what you are doing.

Or simply change direction when your dog starts to pull, go another way.

Do this early, don’t wait untill the dog is miles in front. Your dog ends up behind you by doing this exercise . It can take some time but your dog is going to learn it.

3. Chose the right device
There are different devices available to help you to gett your dog to heel,take a look . In the video you see Doggy Dan using a special harness , the attachment is under the dogs chin. It is different to a normal harness which has the attachment on the back and the dog ends up pulling .

4. The pack leader leads…remember this
The pack leader leads the walk from the front He will fight for being at the front, if you are not the pack leader In your dogs eyes. Its as simple as that. Not possible to cheat a dog, especially the strong minded ones! To become the pack leader has to be learned, and is the basis of Doggy Dan’s world-famous training method.

The 5 Golden Rules,he developed, when followed every day, will help you to become the pack leader in gentle way. On his video website The Online Dog Trainer  , he shows this before any training begins, first establish yourself as the leader and use the 5 rules – this is really important in solving problems on dog behavior .

5. Some extra tips
Earlier, I mentioned there are some other tips and tricks like knowing how and when pull the leash a little without going over the top. When and where to give some freedom to the dog go sniff and pee needs some understanding(usually that’s the why we are going for a dog walk isn’t it!)

Look at Doggy Dan’s website The Online Dog Trainer,if you need to master the walk,he has over 250 videos. It is the best dog training site ever. Currently there are 7 great videos showing how to walk your dog, without him pulling on the leash and how to deal with all the issues and questions you have. There is even a 30 minute audio in the site – which you can listen on your walk!

Walking the dog everybody wants to enjoy, don’t wait any longer!

Remember when the pulling stops your dog will be glad as well , and he will walk  calmly beside you!


Turn Your Puppy Into The Perfect Dog.

Turn Your Puppy Into The Perfect Dog.

How to have the perfect dog? A lot of Dog owners talk about this and would like to have the perfect Dog ,but does a perfect Dog exist?
If we would ask …………is there a perfect person? I think the answer to that is , No!

Certainly there are really great people out there and there are some amazing dogs as well. What is the trick?

Here is my best advice.

Before you are going to a puppy school and learn how to do roly-polies and the commando crawl, think about this.

Does your dream dog do this? Is your dream dog like a monkey , so visitors come they can say ” Wow how clever he is ……..He well trained how do you make him to do that” ?and so on.

Usually in many of these cases the dog owner has to warn  the visitors ” No, don’t go near him when he’s eating, be careful when you pat him , do not touch his head, keep the kids away from his toys..!”

Is this not crazy?

So much time and effort is spent on how to do commands ,like sit and stay but we never think about the really important things. Or it is often too late.

Why this is so,do you want to know?

Because most dog trainers do what all the others are doing!

The sit, the down and the stay is what they all train! Right !Nobody asking  WHY?

Nothing new.

Would you put your dog to sleep (yes, I am talking about euthanized) because he didn’t a proper sit? Think about it….. Or the down command was too slow? Or because he did not stay proper? Certainly not ,who cares about this.

But this is what you learn at puppy school! WHY?!

And ,Aggression? Oh Boy.

A lot of dogs are put to sleep because they are aggressive, barking, growling, and challenging Aggressive to kids, owners and strangers , this is bad news.

An out of control dog is dangerous, pulling on the leash, ignoring you . And what about danger around cars and other dogs.

Few dog trainers show you how to prevent this, because only a few a understand it !

Most ideas of a perfect dog, are including all of the following 5 behaviors:

1. Around other animals and other dogs being calm
2. Being friendly to people and children
3. Obedient and relaxed at home
4. Coming when called at the park

5.Quiet when walking on the leash on the street
Hhmmm…….I hear you think. Yes you got it! 

Your next question ? let me guess

How do we accomplish this?

Ok, this great news , it’s not complicated. It is not complicated and tricky anymore ,all thanks to Doggy Dan’ s  video website  The Online Dog Trainer
On his website is the most amazing collection of videos and he shows you how really to get this kind of ‘perfect’ dog. Doggy Dan shows you In fact the video diary of 8 week old puppy Moses, he guides you through all the stages of accomplishing all the things we just thought about.

How To Stop Your Dog From Barking

Stop Dog from Barking

Stop Dog from Barking

Does the the barking of you dog make you crazy ?
Do you have a constantly barking dog ,”Woof,Woof,Woof, Yap, Yap, Yap?”
Does it make your ears hurt?

Barking to much is not good for your dog either it is not making him happy.
It shows his stress ,frustration, anxiety or over excitement and this emotions are not good for him.

And not good for you !

Think of it ,relaxed dog does not bark!

Lets take a look on a specific type of barking
and lets see how we can stop it…..

A common issue is ,your dog is barking if you are not home.
You may not know about,but you neighbour will tell you after awhile ,when your dog makes him crazy
and you may have even a visit from a dog control officer .
The key for stopping your dogs barking is to understand why he is barking, what is the cause .
we do not only have to treat the symptoms.

We have to look at this trough our dogs eye.

Think of it like this……………

He is a pack leader and one of his jobs is to protect his pack.

If everybody is leaving the house and the dog stay’s alone at home
he get’s stressed and think’s he lost his pack!

He wants his pack to come home again and is stressed and bark’s to call his pack back
This is his job .

Just think about……….

if you have a kid you would like to have it save .

If you know where it is and what it is doing ,you feel relaxed.

If you would heard the door and think your kid is gone outside you get worried.
Would you run after your kid ? for sure and you would call it.

What if the door was locked and you can’t go outside .

Would you phone somebody for help? The dogs do not have this ability!
You would shout for help and this is exactly what the dog is doing………….

you would not sit down and relax ,while your kid is maybe in danger ,would you?

Now you can see why your dog is barking when he is left locked is and alone.

All this bad things dogs are doing ,like chewing,digging under the fence or jumping over it,
all this only happen when you are not around…….
this a re symptoms of a stressed doggy,worried about you not being safe and at home.
your dog is not able to talk to you about this!

The solution is not to give him a bone to chew ,when he is alone at home.
Think what you would do in case of the kid in danger.

Nothing would make you comfortable not even a box of chocolates!
For a left alone dog ,toys,food and other distractions may work for a short time ,but this is only like
treating the symptoms. Did you try it?

There is a very simple solution!

You have to be the pack leader in your dogs eye !

If you do this correctly,the dog will not think of protecting you.

The dog is going to be totally relaxed as you come and go .

This is no trick ,this is only the right understanding of a dog
and the real solution.

Becoming a pack leader is not difficult .you can learn it.
But it is not explainable in only a few minutes.
You can take a look at Doggy Dan’s website he explains very nicely how to be the pack leader and stop your dog from barking when you leave them alone.

Here are some tips you can use to become your dogs pack leader which helps to stop barking.

Exercise:  Exercise your dog before you leave – a tired dog is more likely to relax

Find the right space: Try leaving your dog in different areas – some dogs will relax more outside, others inside and some prefer smaller areas such as a washroom

Fed and water: Always leave water and make sure that your dog is fed before you leave

Pick up the bones: Leave toys around for your dog but not bones

Music and TV: Consider leaving music or TY on for your dog – these distractions can help

Herbal remedies: There are some herbal products for dogs which can help relax them – but again they do not really treat the cause of the issue, they simply help relax them.

Dog walkers: A break in the middle of the day can certainly help break up your dogs day

Leave calmly: Leave your dog calmly – whilst it’s fun to get excited when you leave your dog it’s better if you leave calmly. Try to say goodbye 5 minutes before leaving to help them stay relaxed as you go

Comfort jackets: There are also jackets and shirts available that are designed to comfort them – however they are very expensive and have limited success . I even know of one dog that ate it!

Stay away from the idea of getting another dog ,this does not solve the problem.

Because the root of the problem is not boredom .

I hope you now have a better understanding of a barking dog’s problem .

If you really would like to stop the barking issue of you dog ,
I would recommend to have a look at Doggie Dan’s website and learn to be the pack leader.

Take a free look around the site Click here.

There is big section about barking dog problems under “Separation Anxiety”

It is not difficult ,you only have to understand and see the situation through a dogs eye instead of a humans eye.The dog wants a strong pack leader ,not bones and balls and biscuits.

Get started right now ,the sooner you learn it the sooner you will be the pack leader and make yourself and
your neighbours happy.Not to forget ,the dog will be happy as well.

if you try to teach your dog to sit,stop barking or stop when you call him or any other skill.

To establish a good relationship with your dog you have to understand the importance of this keys ,to get long lasting and quick results.

If you do not want to struggle ,with you training ,you have to first win your dogs mind.

This means your dog has to look for your decisions.Watch one of the videos about the 5 golden rules to make yourself a pack leader.

Work with you dog and make it enjoyable.Some dogs like obedience training,swimming and retrieving or fetching and being agile. Dont
forget to reward your dog.

Three rewards are:

Food – like dry biscuit or sausage
Attention – cuddles and praise

Toys – chasing ,games throwing sticks.
The dog will work harder ,if you are fair to him in your training .
If you do not like to use food ,make sure you give him praise and affection when he does well.

For food rewards:
Give a different kind of foods
Don’t give all time rewards
Don’t let the dog know what kind of reward he gets

If he does not come the first time you call him ,do not give him a reward.

Practice is the third key to success!Learn how to encourage the dog to be better than the last time and give him a reward for this.
Show your dog what you want him to do and you will not need to struggle with the training.
