Q. At what age, do you recommend that I begin feeding my puppy bully sticks?
I am getting a 8 week old Belgian Malinois pup in a couple of weeks. At what age do you recommend that I begin feeding him bully sticks?

A. You don't really "feed" bully sticks; they are an appropriate item for chewing. I use them from the moment I bring my puppy home. They are life savers! I would caution you to keep a close eye on the puppy when chewing them as he or she gets older. I find that usually once they get through the teething process many aggressive chewers (most of my Mals) can no longer have these because they will eat the entire thing in one sitting and get it down to a dangerously small piece that they may swallow whole. I use the super monster size for my Malinois and German Shepherd puppies.

Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet
Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.

The Power of Training Dogs w/ Markers

Marker training (also called clicker training or operant conditioning) is one of the most profound systems of dog training that I have seen in my 50 years of owning, breeding and training working dogs. In its most basic form, it's a method of communication that is very clear for dogs to understand. Dogs learn the marker language quickly and when they do they thrive in training. The marker system produces dogs that love to train.
