Regardless of how we’re dealing with aggressive behavior I’ve found that most ‘professional dog trainers’ these days are addressing these problems all wrong. They aren’t understanding the root of the problem and they definitely aren’t understanding how to find the solution.
In fact, a big part of what we do every day is work with dogs who have already ‘flunked out’ of other dog training companies. These are typically companies where treats and clickers are the norm but solutions for dog aggression are rarely reached.
Check out the video above. It’s a fun little take on a few recent conversations I had with dog owners from around the country. Enjoy!
From the owner of a previously aggressive dog
We are the owners of a 2 year old Lhasa Apso. Simon is his name. He was lovable and friendly… but only when he wanted to be. He had a mind of his own, which he would use frequently and far too often. Simon had the habit of biting or nipping at people in our home as a way of showing that he was in charge. Well after he bit our 6 year old son on the face, we made the decision to find him another home. In the process of searching for a place for Simon to live we heard about Ty The Dog Trainer. Our nephew and his family used Ty to train their Lhasa Apso which produced great results. We had the same experience. Ty came to our home for 3 – 2 hour sessions over the space of 6 weeks and it was awesome! After lesson 1 we could already see amazing progress. This once nervous, angry and aggressive animal had turned into a disciplined, sweet and friendly pup. Each session proved to be better than the last. The end result is astonishing. We can now take Simon for walks without a leash with no worries, and our little dog now loves people. He is truly a part of our family. Simon is happier, we are happier and the feeling in our home is calm, loving and peaceful. We now have a dog who instead of being a worry and concern is well mannered, well behaved and above all…Well trained! Thank you Ty. Your training methods made all the difference in the world!
