TRAINING USING DOG PSYCHOLOGY  

 Pack Theory

There seems to be as many methods of training dogs as there are breeds of dogs.  Good Dog's  method of obedience training  incorporates dog psychology and pack theory. The "Good Dog"  method of training is not about staring contests, alpha rolls, displays of domination, or forcing your will on the dog.

Dogs are social animals that live in groups called a pack. Dogs understand there are leaders and followers and they instinctively follow calm, dominant leadership. In the domesticated dog world you and your family are your dog's pack.
If you don't understand how to appear to your dog as that calm, dominant leader, your dog's instincts tell it someone needs to lead and if it's not you it must be my job!
The lack of proper canine leadership is one of the major reasons why most dog training fails to produce long term results. 

 Negative will work, but...

Dogs learn through associations, both positive and negative. You can yell, roll up newspapers, throw things, shake pop cans full of pennies, squirt them with water, or use electric shock, and a dog will learn from fear and negative association, and also learn to never trust or respect it's human owner.

At Good Dog, we know that dogs can be taught obedience training and most behavior correction with positive associations, and without pain or fear.
 

Negative is not the way!

 

DOG PSYCHOLOGY
The right way to a "Good Dog!"

Dogs do not naturally understand our complex human language. If you examine the average dog owner yelling at their dog to come, or trying to stop the dog from doing something undesirable, the lack of control is obvious. Dogs become confused when we try to communicate with them using the human language.

 

 

This is why you must learn to  communicate with your dog using canine language and signals the dog does understand if you want the dog to respond to your commands. When you do this, your dog learns to respect you as their leader, and obedience training becomes a positive experience for the dog and human. This is dog training using dog psychology.
With our approach, obedience training becomes a natural part of behavior that your dog will understand, and you will enjoy. Incorporating dog psychology with positive reinforcement makes the obedience portion of the training safe, easy, progress quickly, and fun for you and your dog!


The "Good Dog!" method of dog training uses safe, humane, positive reinforcement training techniques, that produce happy, balanced, well behaved dogs. Our dog psychology and pack training methods are naturally understood by every breed from Tea Cup Chihuahua to Great Danes!  We can show you how to turn your dog into a Good Dog too!
