What do you think?
@EvelineUK This response is completely off topic here. If you want to comment about “naming names”, please do it on a vid where Zak does it. Thank you.
@123fritz123123 Zak is not talking about “severe issues”, he’s talking about basic training and trick training.
@123fritz123123 Another off topic comment. :-/
I for one am happy at least (and at last) someone has the balls to speak up concerning CM’s ways…
@bcpuppydawg He’s not saying his methods are the best…It’s not about “the great Zak”…it’s about a change of paradigm !
@k9DaAV Training and games will improve the bond.
It’s good to have a bond before starting to train, but I think the first thing you need is trust; you can develop a bond by training simple tricks first.
Check out Heather’s channel, JustJesse197.
I believe she started training her dog Jesse when she was 16 (or was it 14 ?).
Concerning children, under 12 years old, I think it depends a lot on the individual child.
And of course parents should keep an eye on them.
Sometimes, parents can learn from kids to…!
@AgilityFox Jesse and Kane are amazing, and both girls have a firm understanding of what their dogs need and enjoy. And now Jesse is a moviestar!
@ArtMusicPeaceAnimals Which is why they need adult supervision.
This is flattering considering I’m 14. My dogs have a better communication with me then my dad, I don’t even have to talk I just give him hand motions and he obeys. :3
im 13 and ive tought my dog jesse more than 55 tricks. and he’s only 7 months old. so i think kids CAN be better, but sometime’s adults might have a better chance of getting somewhere with that.
Well my dogs aren’t the brightest. :/ 1 dog is “retired”, 1 dog has a bad leg, 1 dog is afraid of the clicker and the other dog does not listen at all and has problems about concentrating. Oh how I miss my Junior! 🙁
@jessethejack what breed is your dog?
@TorVlogs jesse is a jack russell terrier!
@EvelineUK Yeah, my friend’s mom is a vet and before we got started I asked her about it, we did jumps with the bars down and tunnels mostly for the first 8 months, then worked on 4in and 8 in jumps, at 10 monthes we started weaving and at a year, contacts. We nailed all of them and kept working for a year, and once he was three we started competing, his food had supplements for his joints and some for all over health.
When does your new show come on?
Kids are better. IF the dog has a good bond or at least a bond with there dog. Tell me what you think
I have a kinda different question… My dog has hip dysplasia, and I’m not exactly sure how to exercise her. I don’t want to hurt her by over-doing it, but she gets bored and hyper very easily… Are you aware of any appropriate activities for pups with hip dysplasia?
heck yeah they can! I mean as long as they know what they’re doing.
Lol I was going to ask if that was a sock
Could you please tell us about your experience with dogs with bad reputation, like dobermans, rotveilers, bull teriers? Do you recomend to adopt these dogs to people, who never had a dog, but who is willing to train and wants to have good friend and companion? Its better to train doberman whith specialists in the beginning?
@Shenten I am not Zak but swimming is defenately oen thing a dyplastic dog would benefit from. I know one dog (a BC) with dysplasia has been advised by a vet NOT to quit agility since it keeps the muscles strong and supporting the joints. I think this might be debatable but the advice to swim is pretty unanimous
Kids are better! <3 (I guess!) Because my dad tried to learn my dog Mico(Border Collie) shake. We gave him a week. He used more -.-' Then my mom asked me if I could teach Mico something. I used a quarter to learn him to go in circles and a half hour to speak. now he can do both 😛
I think kids are capable of training dogs better than adults because:
-They are closer to the dog’s eye level
-Scientific studies have proven that dogs learn the same way young human children do
-Adults tend to overcomplicate things while kids keep it simple. Dog training really isn’t all that complicated.
-Younger children seem to have a stronger connection with animals, as do animals with younger children.
-Kids keep training fun for the dog, while adults tend to be more serious.
Adults think too much. Have you noticed that “professional” dog trainers create charts and systems for dog training? It can be a bit confusing. Whereas kids just go and do it. They set no expectations and no limits.
I am 17 years old and have been training since I was 11 years old. I have been fairly successful in agility, flyball and trick training. I think that many of the adults I have worked with get frusterated and think of “giving up” as an option. It is often about the final product (ie. an impressive trick) and they do not take the small steps as success. I feel like other young people, and myself, find the joy in training and are not just after the final product. 🙂
