Overcoming Imperfect Situations

Overcoming Imperfect Situations
with Michael Ellis

As dog trainers we often find ourselves in an imperfect situation. This may be walking down the street with a reactive dog or not having high value food rewards on us when something goes wrong. In this particular video, Michael Ellis answers a question from one of his students about his new dog who is having problems going into the crate. The student is afraid of the side effects that can be caused when using negative punishment in this situation. However, as Michael will explain, dog trainers need to learn how to think on their feet and learn to work outside the box from time to time.

Leerburg's Online Basic Dog Obedience Course

Wow! For weeks I have been in such a conundrum about my 90 pound, 9 month old, GSD that became BOSS of my world out of my sheer ignorance of EVERYTHING about dogs. But today I am excited for the first time in months. I bought this course out of desperation and fear of the monster that was growing in my house and what to do next. He has had 7 months to take over me and my home and I didn't even realize what was happening.

Today, after completing the first week in a couple of days, I have hope I can keep and my manage this dog I have so come to love. Let me rephrase that; I KNOW I CAN manage and keep my German Shepherd after week one with Ed. Thank you Ed Frawley for your love and knowledge of dogs and sharing it with us! I very much look forward to the remainder of the course.

Question: What's the best way to keep the snow from building up between my dog's toes?

I have a Bernese Mt dog. What is the best way to keep the snow from building up between her toes?

Cindy's Response:

I would trim the hair between her pads and use Musher's Secret.

On Leerburg's Lightweight Prong Collar Adapter

  I bought two of these, one for me and one for my daughter. We've had fog here for days and today the sun finally came out and I was able to go out and work my dog on this. I love it. It worked perfectly with no tangling or twisting. I had complete control and no worry about the pinch collar coming loose. I'd give it more than 5 stars if I could.
