Training For Multiple Dog Sports with Michael Ellis

Michael Ellis answers a question at his school about how and why people set up a training program to compete in multiple dog sports and train separate disciplines at the same time. While this is possible and recommended for experienced dog trainers, Michael recommends picking one sport and sticking with it for anyone who is just starting out on their long and successful training path.

Leerburg's Online Basic Dog Obedience Course

I have learned so much about Pack structure, I have owned "good" dogs all my adult life. They were easy learners and offered little training challenges, plus they were natural pack members. I somehow maneuvered myself into a situation of pack leader, but I have learned a more direct method from your class. I wish I had followed your program when we first adopted our Stella two years ago. Our new girl is a definite challenge! She would have adjusted much more quickly to us and our environment if she could have done so from the safety of her crate. She came with a lot of inappropriate behaviors due to her fears of people and situations. She is a "hard" dog who is also extremely energetic.

Although, I had a little knowledge of clicker training, your DVD has helped me so much to refine my technique and make it work for Stella. She is an eager learning, but I wasn't delivering the message. I can see all kind of possibilities for her as we now share a common language. Ready, Yes, No, good and done!!!! Five simple words! Motivation and drive techniques were appreciated too. My timing and hand positions are areas that still need further refinement, but I know what to do now!!

Carefully, I followed your instructions on using a prong collar, especially helpful to someone who was not familiar with how to use it. Now, I know how to correct, by stopping, and rewarding her when she looks back at me. I never pull her leash, but use verbal commands to change direction. I want you to know she is so much better. As a rescue, she had an large audience--her former foster was absolutely amazed at her progress when she walked back to her doggy play group a week ago. She remarked to everyone, Stella is a different dog!!!! So, thank you so much!!!!

My self confidence is so much more, because I feel I have learned so much. I know what direction to take, and can offer solutions to a problem. Thank you for offering this class. And once again, thank you for helping so many dogs avoid the tragedy of being put down and surrendered, you are performing a great service.

Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question

Question: Will a raw diet change my dog's mood or make him aggressive? If my 3 year old son falls and bleeds, will my dog be attracted to his wound?

Hi. I have a 10 month old BOERBOEL. I feed him premium dog food but he looks skinny around the hip. I am thinking of the raw diet but, will this change his moods and get aggressive? I have a 3 year old boy that plays with him. If my boy falls and bleeds, will this attract the dog to his wound?

Cindy's Response:

It's a wives tale that feeding a dog a raw diet attracts them to blood or makes them aggressive. I would suggest reading as much as you can and having reference materials on hand before taking the plunge into changing your dog's diet.

Here is a Q&A section on raw feeding.

The best books for learning about the raw diet are Raw Dog Food and Natural Nutrition for Dogs & Cats. We give both these books to our puppy customers and rarely have questions about the diet. One of the newer feeding books we offer is Raw & Natural Nutrition for Dogs. This title covers homemade cooked & raw diets complete with recipes. I highly recommend all these books.

On Leerburg's Patriotic Service Dog Vest

 

I just received this vest for my in training therapy dog. She is a 9 month old rescued German Shepard and today was the first time she has ever worn a vest. We put it on her and it fit great, she looks great and not one time did it seem to bother her. I love the Patriotic theme since I am a Veteran and will definitely recommend your company's vest and order from you when she needs a new one.
