There is nothing wrong with bragging when it's about how awesome your clients are!

Puppies, pet dogs, problem dogs or performance dogs - we've got you covered

get in touch

Lately I’ve made some posts about pinch collars - and I’ve sure had some detractors as a result.

No pinch collar in the world can compel a dog to enjoy its work…but then again, that’s not why they’re used.

Most of the time when a dog has issues with its performance the problem stems back to an inability to motivate that dog.

It’s not always that simple, but I’d make a hell of a lot of money if I bet that it was (often enough).

Hence, this meme.

📞I call ahead with an ETA and she makes sure that they’re away from the door and doing something great with her.

🚪I come in the door and call out to them - and she tells me how they respond.

🎉Especially with the pup that’s something I like to know, but we also love blowing their minds with a big dose of instant happy.

🔩The young bloke was playing and BOLTED up onto the couch and into my arms.

😍Dammit, he was one happy pup!

❤️ We were both overjoyed to see each other, it was a truly lovely moment.

💬 I got a message from the 🧚‍♀️FDM this morning, which I’ve inserted into the bottom right of the pic attached to this text.

💪 Knowing that he just got on with his day when I left actually makes me happier than this greeting on my return ever could - because I know I’m building this dog towards being a strong individual that can cope with life, and all it’s eventualities.

🤷‍♂️Some folks want the opposite - but in my opinion that seems somewhat selfish.

❓Why would I want a dog to feel dependant on me to feel secure, and to be able to function?

👍I’m happy to earn my place in his life, and to outcompete other things in our environment.

🎙If you’re trying to achieve these same goals, then be sure to check out @the.stim.podcasts with @dr.michellerassool and myself.

✅ Our series on Working Backwards To Raise Your Puppy has achieved a ton of praise from listeners - dog owners and trainers alike - and we deep dive on this topic and more.
