    Glad I found someone in NY. I want to get a dog myself. A pup. I've been looking up different breeds and now I'm ready to study things like this. Thank you. I will be a client soon.

    Hello. I know it's me and I need a trainer like you. My dog was attacked at an off leash park and now I get tense upon meeting dogs during our walks. He is now acting out. Do you have a recommendation in Plano tx? I'm scheduled to meet with a trainer on Thursday to help "him" get re-socialized.

    look the dog he is using for demonstration is an easy dog. As a trainer i would never open my mouth about what she is doing wrong till i showed her otherwise… Take the leash from her be an example…. Most trainers never touch a clients dog…. I agree that she is incorrect but so are you.

    I loved the video! I would like to hear your advice on what to do when a dog is SUPER sociable & playful leashed/unleashed and even submissive to most dogs, but then she just agressively barks to a few if they approach each other, and with some of them they have never had a problem before and even played together in the past. Thank you!

    6:00 sums it up, "DON'T WORRY ABOUT HIM- HE'S GOOD. I GOTTA WORK ON YOU!" I like this trainer and his advice to not over correct makes perfect sense. I am getting a dog and don't know much about training so I welcome the chance to learn. So far what I am finding is that dog owners create most of the problems out of their own fears and insecurities. They often anticipate problems where there are none. They will then often create unnecessary anxiety (in an otherwise mostly calm dog) e.g., when they see other dogs, someone comes to the door, etc. They over correct the dogs and overwhelm them too often by using both physical and mental negative corrections. This in turn makes the dog more nervous and associate daily life/events to negativity. How would we like getting yanked on the neck and yelled at every time we did something less than perfect- or every time another human walks by (even if we didn't do anything wrong)? It would be exhausting. It's all about associative conditioning, calming down and not over correcting. A tired (well walked) and confident dog has less need to be aggressive. On the other hand, a nervous/anxious and insecure dog (because he is over corrected all of the time) will naturally tend to be more aggressive. Think about the awful scenario of a dog fight. Before the fight, the dog's owner does assertive physical and verbal "corrections" or commands. To the dog, it's almost the same thing as what well intending owners do routinely just on a less intense scale but in it's hourly repetition the affects can be similar. Without intending to, over doing it basically is like getting them primed to do battle. Instead, if we relax, the dog will tend to relax as well. Poor training can actually teach aggression. Then there is the whole high energy, high pitched way many owners talk to their dogs that gets them over excited at times when they are already stimulated (e.g., They smell food and you sing…"Wanna Eat?" They see you getting their lease and then you sing…"Wanna Go Out Side?" They hear the doorbell and smell an animal on the other side of the door and then you sing…"Who's At the Door?" Also, giving positive reinforcement (Petting and verbal praise) and the wrong time reinforces what you don't want. If the dog anxiously sits or stops jumping for a split second, just let them be. Not a time to praise them. We are actually acknowledging our own relief to what they did when we do that. My take away is it's often best for people to smile or frown inside but talk and touch less. Have that quality relationship that starts with us first and values understanding and caring over control. I look forward to watching more of his videos and learning more.

    The psychological aspect as a human when it comes to leading your dog, is something that only comes with time and experience. He is spot-on with his advice, but the application of it is not easy – especially with dogs like the German Shepherd.

    Her embarrassment and over correction remind me of the way my Mom is with one of our dogs. Her problem is that she sets up so much anticipation for Hurley – by preemptively choking up her collar, talking to her too much to try and make her chill, and sometimes stopping as they pass.

    I keep telling her these are all mistakes, and that I never have these problems because I don't do these things. Instead, we can either breeze past the other people and she doesn't pay much attention to their dog. If we do slow down to socialize, and she hasn't been filled up with projected anxiety, she's super submissive and cute. She is secretly a coward but my Mom makes her feel like she's about to go 10 rounds every time they pass a dog.

    Hi there, I don't see any kind of aggression coming out of the dog, I noticed the GSD tried to snap at the other dog only once at the beginning of the video however the dog stayed calm the rest of the video.

    That being said, I appreciate your advice and it's really true and very specific however, "MY DOG" is really different than this and is really way more aggressive that this GSD. He wouldn't stand seeing another dog whatsoever and it's getting me frustrated. I tried everything "Literally everything". He wouldn't snap out of it, like it me or that other dog killed or disappearing.

    Needless to say, my dog is very well trained and obedient at home and when he's out and there's not other dogs in sight… When another dog is in the picture, "It's like I don't exist " and he's "operating" on his own.

    Hard to watch dogs that has lost all their optimism.. The owner is not very compassionate towards her dog.he is not allowed to even move a paw without her correcting him. When a dog looses all his possibilities to CHOOSE it gets depressed and very helpless. Breaks my heart. I believe in energy, empathy and understanding. The dog does really not want to follow his owner and that is sooooo sad ;( .. If we could talk to our dogs i know many of them would ask to change their families and that breaks my heart.. I hope she follows up with what he says – because this is awesome.

    Correction. The entire video is saying the same thing over and over. This video could have been 5 minutes

    The Trainer ignore all the dog genetic behave… he focus only in the owner not un the dog.

    And it has to be the opositive… first the dog then the owner.

    Why he not let them loose if the problem was the owner?

    I'd like a video about real aggression. If that was my dog, we wouldnt be having this convo right now,because he just attacks and attacks and attacks, pulling a leash abd chokes himself. Thats what kind of a dog I have and this is fruatrating. wWe had to go to a vet to update our shots, and it was a nightmare with all other dogs being in such a close proximity to him. 🙁 I can't even go to a park with him or prowl around my neighborhood. Please help 🙁
