dispelling myths on dog training

I just found this pet related video on YouTube … and thought you might enjoy it!


YouTube Description

Dispelling the myth that a dog trained without the use of physical and psychological intimidation won’t listen if he is chasing prey. What is not shown in this video is that Splash only chases prey on cue, she never does it without being cued- as I have put chasing prey under stimulus control. All my dogs are only trained using Progressive Reinforcement Training.

What do you think?

    How did you train Splash not to chase prey except on cue? My dogs were absolute terrors around other animals, either prey or other dogs, when I rescued them. They now behave pretty well when they are on-leash. But a couple of days ago I accidentally let go of their leashes when I was tending to a poop event, and both of them tore out after a cat.

    I can see with a working breed like this (my BC/Blue Heeler cross was very obedient), but what about sight hounds?

    This is really unbelievable, you and your dogs are on a level what is nearly insane 🙂 In germany I would say, da wird der Hund in der Pfanne verrueckt!
    I think its all about the relationship, after that there is the training, right?

    would love to see this done with a more distracted dog like a springer spanial or dalmatian.

    Love this! great music too. No doubt what breed/type of dog it just shows that the dog is choosing to listen to her owner and not the prey. And if you don’t think BC don’t have a high high pray drive, then do your homework. Look up Leslie Nelson if you want that reliable recall for any breed of dog. She also explain how using positive reinforcement will establish the best relationship with your dog and teaching your dog choosing you over anything else. WORD KIKOPUP!

    That’s really good! Our dog chases birds and sometimes we can stop him by blowing a whistle and throwing his favourite toy instead. Sometimes though, the birds are even more exciting than his toy and we can’t stop him running off after them. He is a Lab cross Collie and has the Collie obsession with chasing things.

    Hi Emily. Could you do tutorial for owners of long hair dogs about how to get them used to grooming especially blow drying and clipping. That would be live saver. Thanks!

    @xkoonzix Though I’m not Kikopup. The first command you should teach is “Sit” and “Leave It”. Sit because it can also double as a means of getting the dog to stop running ahead or walking away. Leave it because when walking a puppy they will often grab any and everything around them. This will allow you to take away bad stuff he/she shouldn’t have.

    It’s all about relationship and excellent recall! 🙂 I have an Aussie/BC cross and I can call him off of a squirrel as he’s madly barking and boucing at it while it taunts him in the tree. Training does not have to be harsh, you just need the right mental tools!!!

    Thank you for this short clip Emily. I have been having a “debate” online about this, and I am so glad someone is videoing it! The arguments for force and punishment are about driving me crazy. I need to lurk and not get involved because the mo9re I say, the more those trainers defend their pop and shock methods. It’s so frustrating!
