Great Dog Training Advice
What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #116

Are the dogs having fun yet?

do we want dogs to be miserable during training? no we don't.
do we want dogs to have fun during training? it is not as simple as that

do we want owners to stop having massive amounts of phyiscal and physcological pain by owning a dog that is misbehaving, dangerous and making parts of their lives miserable..ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!

keep in mind we REHAB dogs, sure we do basic obedience with dogs, but most of the dogs we deal with are there for rehab fo some thing and lots of those "things" are dangerous..

so you go to rehab for addiction...how was it? did you have fun? well most likely not, but you are not there to have fun, you are there to get sober, to get clean, to break some dangerous habits that not only have been affecting your life (and could have you end up dead) but also your behavior has been affecting the peolple around you. You most likely may not think it is a problem, you where having fun drinking and doing drugs, but the people around you where not having fun.

So if the dogs are having fun or not is not a factor, and we show our work even though it brings alot of heat to us because the dogs are not always looking "happy" well, a leash reactive dog is most likely happy doing that behavior, but we hate it...

so it can look messy at first, but on the other side of that mess, is awesomeness, we see it over and over again, and the big happiness is from the owners, and that is who are main obligation is to.
This is a little different than a lot of trainers out there who are dog centric, that does not make those folks wrong or bad, it just makes us a little different, but we are seeing more and more folks being client focused, which does not mean we are not dog focused. You can be both, but one has to be in the forefront.
