Here is an interview with Doggy Dan where he talks about his special relationship with dogs. In case, you have not heard of him, Doggy Dan is a professional dog trainer and dog behaviorist from New Zealand. There are a couple of examples in the video where he is working with clients dogs. One dog is suffering from separation anxiety and is constantly barking when left alone and the other dog will not come back to her owners when called. You will see how easy he deals with both these situations.
Just like Doggy Dan says in the video, it is very important to understand how dogs function and then adapt your own behavior to it. In the video, he also shows the importance of being the pack leader. As you can see with the little dog who is constantly barking when the owners leave the house, once they have established themselves as the dogs leader then this dog can be left alone and it will calmly wait for his owners to return. It is in fact very difficult to do any dog training with a dog who if you have not established yourself as the pack leader. Like I have said many times before, dogs folllow their leader, so if you are their leader, they will follow you, and this is really the core of Doggy Dan’s training.
In the video he gives the example of a big dog who was constantly pulling the lead and nothing the owners did seem to work. Dan made the dog change his “mindset” and when he no longer considered himself to be in charge, he walked calmly on the lead.
Doggy Dan shows how little things is of great importance, such as going through doors before your dog (a leader goes first) and not letting your dog get out of the car before you have given it permission to do so. These are little things but they all add up and they are important.
This is the reason why Doggy Dan is so successful, he knows how dogs function and he knows how to act in order to make them follow him.
Doggy Dan also runs the website, the online dog trainer.
