If you struggle with your dog’s behavior… things like constant barking, jumping up, growling, snapping, or leash pulling can be incredibly frustrating to deal with.

The Most Common Dog Training Mistakes

(You’re Probably Making Them Now)

Mistake 1

Lacking Team Spirit

It’s easy to think of your dog as separate from yourself – an “animal to be trained” – but that isn’t really what is happening. In a session, you are both learning skills and learning about each other, thus, your mood and how you feel impacts success. Your dog can be affected by your frustration and disappointment, even if you think you are hiding it. So show up prepared for mistakes (on both your parts) and in good spirits or wait… for a better time. Think and act as a good partner with team spirit and you will have a better connection and get better results.

Mistake 2

Training Before You Really Understand (Or Can Communicate With) Your Dog

Your dog is always trying to communicate with you, but their communication can be subtle just like when you narrow your eyes and crinkle your nose. Dogs use body language, movement, smells and some sound to communicate. And most people miss important messages their dog is trying to tell to them… which results in behavior problems that could’ve been avoided entirely.

Mistake 3

Correcting your dog without training the behavior you WANT!

It’s easy to say “No!” and it may stop your dog for a bit, but chances are your dog will repeat the behavior because it is rewarding in some way. Even if that behavior makes you mad, if it’s the only attention your dog gets, it’s better than no attention at all. So instead of telling your dog, “No”, teach the behavior you actually want and make it rewarding – more rewarding than the behavior you want to stop and you’ll both be happier.

Improve Your Dog’s Behavior Too…

Growing up, I had an undeniable passion for animal behavior and training. Which lead me to pursue behavior medicine and dog sports, specifically dog agility competition.

Now, I’ve always had high-energy, strong-willed dogs (several of them in fact). So I know exactly what it’s like to deal with dogs that have a tendency to misbehave, not listen… much less obey, and can be anti-social or aggressive.

Because of my love for animals I also became a veterinarian. There was just one problem… while I was able to treat their medical or health issues, many dogs were still at risk of being euthanized due to behavior problems.

And after years of seeing dog owners struggle with common behavior problems that are easily resolved with proper training, I couldn’t take it anymore – I had to help.

So I left clinical practice to focus on behavior medicine and professional dog training so I could help others, like you, improve your dog’s behavior too.
