Myths 6 to 10
Dog training myths: There’s just so much conflicting stuff out there on the internet. And most of it is absolute hogwash. Let’s delve into Part 2 of 2 of the 10 most commonly misunderstood topics.
6. You should NEVER use food treats
Food treats used at the right time, in the right way, and in the correct situations is one of the post powerful training tools.
With over 250 videos you get to see the few times that Doggy Dan uses them and how effective food treats are, but also you learn the art of phasing them out over time.
7. You CAN’T teach an old dog new tricks
Dogs are always ready to change at any age.
Of course prevention is better than cure and it’s pretty much always easier to train a dog correctly from the start.
Of course to do this you first need to know what they are looking for and how to then communicate it to them.
8. Hard work and practice is ALL you need
There’s a right way and a wrong way. Very often doing things the wrong way will simply never work no matter how hard you work and how much you practice.
Dog training is not about hard work, or spending hours training your dog. They are smart animals and will listen to you if you’re the pack leader, and understand how to communicate to them.
9. Little dogs are easier to train than big dogs
Size has nothing to do with it. Just like people, you can’t generalize how dogs will behave by their size!
There are very big dogs that are very easy going and not difficult to train and there are some very difficult smaller dogs.
10. Most dogs that cause trouble are stupid
Wrong. Most dogs causing trouble are very intelligent, even by a dog’s standard.
Very often it’s the very clever, determined dogs that refuse to give up that cause us the most frustration.
