Evolution of Training Aggressive Dogs with Remote Collars21/12/2012 Duración: 27min
This podcast is about the evolution of training methods used to control and/or eliminate dog aggression with remote collars. I bought my first electric collar in 1979. It was a Tri Tronics Pro 100 that cost $1,000.00. Today that collar is the model-T ford of e-collars. Just as remote collars have drastically improved over the years, so too have the methods used to apply them to our dog training. We are now able to use levels of stimulation in training that we humans can’t even feel. One of my favorite quotes is “When you know better, you do better.” This podcast is going to allow many people do a better job training their dog aggressive dogs with electric collars.
Learning to Use Food Rewards During Dog Training01/02/2008 Duración: 27min
This 25 minute podcast explores the methods to train your dog with food rewards. Training with food increases the dogs motivation to learn along with improving the bond between dog and handler. Trainers need to use different treats when training different exercises. Some dogs, for one reason or another, don’t have a lot of food drive. I explain the work to insure that every dog has food drive. I discuss the relationship between using high value meat rewards Vs using some of the many all-natural food rewards that we sell. Many people mistakenly use way to large of a food reward in training. I go into detail about what size to use and how creating a trail mix of different food rewards can positively effect the dogs motivation to work.
