Does Anyone Know Of A Good Dvd About Dog Training?

A Reader Asks…

I am planning on getting a dog, but I’ve never had one before and I don’t the first thing about . I want to train it so it doesn’t end up like my cousin’s dog who jumps all over people and barks at everything. I want my dog to be my buddy so please hook me up with some sort of DVD to give me the basics of training my new dog right.

    I just got a dog from the Spca and they gave me a disc on training, crating, leash training…everything you want to know about your new dog.
    Call the Spca in your town and see if they have a DVD that you can have…they are free.

    Don’t waste your money on a DVD. As a first time dog owner you need to go to a training class, and your dog or puppy will greatly benefit from group training. In my experience, dogs learn from other dogs almost as much as they learn from people. When they see other dogs behaving and minding, they are more likely to copy that behavior.
    Many shelters offer beginning obedience. Here are some links to professional trainershttp://www.nadoi.org/index.htmhttp://www.apdt.com/
    Here is a good online Dog Owners Guide to answer some of your other questionshttp://www.canismajor.com/dog/index.html

    There are a few short clips on training on the HSUS web site: http://www.hsus.org/pets/pet_care/tamar_…
    Dogwise.com has tons of stuff, including:
    – training a recall http://www.dogwise.com/itemdetails.cfm?I…
    – general training info http://www.dogwise.com/itemdetails.cfm?I…

    If you only get one, go with Jean Donaldson’s. She rocks!
    Please don’t get any of Cesar Milan’s videos. His methods are outdated and using them is a great way to ruin the relationship with your dog.

    Cesar Millan has several videos on being the pack leader which is a good place to start. Sign up for obedience classes when you get your puppy, read all you can on your breed of dog so you know what to expect. There are a ton of books on training i.e. “Dog tricks for Dummies”
    Being your dogs pack leader is the first place to start, dogs don’t respect you if you aren’t their leader. giving your dogs rules, boundaries and limitations, not allowing them to do anything they want, giving the dog structure and a strict schedule helps also. But definitely training classes that way you have hands on experience with a professional trainer who can correct you as you go along is the best place to start.
    If your cousins dog jumps all over people then he has obviously learned that jumping gets him attention, even negative attention (down, off, go away) is attention. Remember reward the behavior you want (treats or praise) and ignore the behavior you don’t want. Always give affection or attention at the right time will make your dog associate the good behavior with the affection, giving affection at the wrong time can make your dog associate it with bad behavior.
    Remember whatever behavior gets them attention they will repeat so understand when to give attention and affection and learn when not to.
    Watch “The Dog Whisperer” on Friday nights on the National Geographic channel and “It’s Me or The dog” on Animal Planet, both excellent trainers will show you how to train and correct problem behavior as it arises.
    Good luck to you start BEFORE you get the dog that way you are prepared to handle whatever problems come along.
