When a dog is engaged with its handler it desires to be with the handler, and understands and looks forward to who the handler is and what he or she has to offer. The dog is an eager student who pushes the educational process and feels empowered to make things happen within the training. The picture of an engaged dog is a happy dog that is willing to do what the handler asks because it's learned to trust and crave interaction with the him or her through the use of various high value rewards, interactive play, proper management, and clear communication and expectations.

House training problems are one of the most common reasons that people give up their pets. This is really a sad statement to have to make because the solution to almost every house training problem is very simple common sense solution. I cannot tell you how many emails I get every week from pet owners that are pulling their hair out trying to solve their dogs’ house training problems.

It is very important that trainers understand that the proper fit will not only ensure better training it is also a safety issue with the dog. The less movement in the handlers arm the faster the trainer is going to be able to take the slack out of the collar.

BOWL & PAILS

Our dog bowls are perfect for use as a food or water dish. They are also dishwasher safe. Twenty nine years ago we learned the hard way that plastic dog bowls are not a good idea for dogs. They scratch, they get chewed up and they are hard to clean. This is not the case with a stainless steel dog bowl.

FOR PLAYING FETCH

We strongly recommend that you purchase a set of ultra balls to use with your Chuckit! Tennis balls are not good for dog's teeth. The Chuckit! comes with a tennis ball upon purchase. This is fine to use if you are playing with your dog around a lake or for a short time. It is better to get a set of these ultra balls and then you don't have to worry about wrecking the enamel on your dog's teeth. They fit perfectly into the Chuckit! and are lightweight, bouncy and they float too! The medium ultra balls come in a 2-pack and are each 2.5" wide. The mega ultra balls are 1 per pack and are 3" wide.

Dog training is a learned skill. The goal of this DVD is to introduce dog trainers to the details of training with markers. In my DVD I show and demonstrate the finer points of the marker system. I not only demonstrate the use of markers in the basic commands, but I also included examples of how markers can be used in more difficulty exercises, like the retrieve and the send away.

A drag leash is a light weight leash that is designed to be used by trainers who want to let their dog drag a leash so they can quickly grab the line to either control the dog or to give a correction. A drag line should not have a loop handle. When dogs drag a leash with a looped handle their hind legs are constantly getting tangled in the loop. This can cause a bad injury if the dog is running and it trips them. I have heard of dogs actually breaking a rear leg when this happened while they were running.
