I have a 3 year old Sheltie that has an obedience CDX and am working towards a Utility Title and maybe an OTCH. Does your method of training help a breed of dog like mine achieve the type of results I have seen on your web site?
I just got home from a dog show where I saw the most awesome German Shorthair Pointer. I asked him where he trained and he gave me your web site. I have a 3 year old Sheltie that has an obedience CDX and am working towards a Utility Title and maybe an OTCH. I hope this doesn't sound silly, but does your method of training help a breed of dog like mine achieve the type of results
I have seen on your web site? Obviously she does not need to learn bite work (or does she?). I believe we could benefit from your videos in a lot of areas. Could you please point me in the right direction.
Your question isn’t silly at all!
The methods taught on our website (most specifically through the Michael Ellis DVDs) are for all breeds. My next dog will likely be a Papillon and I will take him/her through the same exact foundation that I have done with my Malinois that do bite work. I will teach all the tugging, but obviously won’t progress to a bite suit or sleeve on a helper.
Using tugging for a reward is great for motivation, so if you are interested in our system I’d recommend the following ( in the following order): The Power of Training Dogs with Food http://leerburg.com/220.htm The Power of Playing Tug with your Dog http://leerburg.com/221.htm Focused Heeling with Michael Ellis http://leerburg.com/223.htm Training the Retrieve with Michael Ellis http://leerburg.com/224.htm Training the Jumps with Michael Ellis http://leerburg.com/226.htm Training the Send Away with Michael Ellis http://leerburg.com/227.htm
Shelties are awesome dogs, I had one for 17 years. I wish I knew then what I know now! He was a great little obedience dog. I hope this helps.
