    It's a good video but…. I have to admit I tried saying "hey" to my dog (which is half German shepard and the other half is rhodisan ridgeback) and it don't work. Try making videos for owners with big dog that are unsociable, playful, with a touch if aggressive.

    Yeah, my Belgian Terv. needs a crop to get his focus away from other dogs. It's impossible for him to not want want kill them.

    This has got to be the stupidist vedio ever! How about showing a dog that jumps
    all over people and won't settle down, instead of a bunch of lazy dogs.

    I want to get my toy poodle to stop barking at big dogs who come up and sniff him. I love big dogs too and I want him to be nice to other doggies.

    I just spray my german shepherd with water when she starts barking and tell her to sit and lay down than let the person or dog get close to her then when my dog lets the person or other dog hang around her without barking, i give her a treat.

    Whenever my german shepherd barks at other people and other dogs, I just yank on her prong collar and shout no.

    @zorropomchi hello other dog owner in a park. would you mind risking my dog biting your dogs face off to help him be more sociable?

    the tips may be solid but the example is terrible. at the point other dogs entered the room my dog would be totally flipping out. if it were on a lead at the park and spotted another dog it would be choking its self to the point of vomiting. dogs off the lead approach my dog to be greeted with a bite in the face. no tail wagging at all. my dog is a small 4 year old flat coated retriever. it has never bit a person and lives with a cat but hates other dogs.

    @godzilla964 that's like forcing you to take a cold shower and then stand naked in front of the new people you are introduced to. Not a healthy way to teach your dog.. but hey.. if it works for you.

    @0Swantonjack0 1. you don't let a pack of labs charge her when she's nervous! that's NOT helping. 2. start with one at a distance. make sure the lab stays calm. 3. make sure every experience is a good one. 4. realize she's not going to be a trusty dog overnight.

  • Ryan

    September 23, 2011 - 2:22 am

    @Nugatti I actually stopped doing that. Instead, if another dog comes towards her, I just go the opposite direction.

  • Nugatti

    September 23, 2011 - 11:55 am

    @godzilla964 no matter how she reacts? so she's never social with other dogs?

    Ugh, waste of my time! Like others have said what do I do just pull random dogs into my house? And yeah, my dog would immediately lunge and bark not just do a lip curl. Where is the praise when the dog is doing the right thing? This is not a good training video. Boo 🙁

  • apq1990

    This is a bunch of BS and this girl does not have a clue on what she is talking about.1st a better example would be a dog that is aggressive, my dog would just bark and bark and try to bite everyone in that room. 2nd I saw that the owner gave the dog like a small hit on the side with her finger, very wrong! u can't teach an animal by hitting them no matter the force. 3 there's no reward. 4 the scenario, It would have been better on the outdoor (dogpark)

  • apq1990

    Also the dogs used in this training session, don't seem to be very sociable either, because their minding their own business, not caring about the Chinese crested. For this u need dogs that interact with the dog in training. This does not work!

  • Francine Vale

    Your right! Everything in this video is wrong! Plus flooding a allready poor nervous dog in his/her room is not right thing to do!

    This has to be the best video of the year for 2013. I'm going to use this training method on my dog when I can't get Sampson to get along with my husband or other neighbor's dogs.

    Provoking a dog and then "correcting" it with punishment is like me throwing a tarantula on you and then yelling at you when you show fear. The dog is showing avoidance of other dogs, why can't that be respected. Why isn't he rewarded for not reacting to the presence of the other dogs? That is what creates a positive association, not punishing him in the presence of other dogs.

    Muzzle him if you have to, and make sure he's had plenty of exercise before you go to the dogpark so he isn't bursting with energy right when he gets there, it's one of the things I did with my dog who was aggressive when I got him from a shelter and he's been the greatest most social dog for 10 years now.

    I didn't think the dog was really unsocialised. compared to mine, it is a dream. I wanted to see something that would help my dog but this wasn't it. I'm sure it's fine for others.

    Yeah it worked pretty well for me, I think the only way to fix dogaggression is to expose them to dogs aswell just make sure the other dogowners know what you're doing especially if it's an enclosed dogpark, the energy part is the most important it's best if he's a little tired, many will probably recognize this if they think about it, how annoying and unruly some dogs are in the morning walk when bursting with energy and how great they are after it.

    Trainer talks the talk, then wastes your life while you watch a calm dog watch other calm dogs walk about.

  • ottawak9school

    June 10, 2015 - 5:04 pm

    I stopped watching after "you can jab him with your finger". If the dog is already anxious, jabbing him with your finger certainly does not "counter condition" him.

    I took my puppy from a dog foster home about a year ago. I love him to bits; he has a great personality, and I feel that he loves our family so much. BUT, whenever I take him for a walks, we have problems. My wife and I were thinking about taking him to 'doggy school', but then again, it’s extremely expensive, and the nearest 'doggy school' is far away from us. Maybe you have some advice? THANK YOU!!!!
