Just posted an update to my “F’ me I don’t need another dog thread”.
So we really need a dog trainer. The vet told us so after we boarded them there over X-mas.
Turns out we are horrible owners. I don’t know how to train a dog, I can get them to sit if they are a good dog from the get go. That’s all I have.
My 8 year old dog, who freaks at everybody, he trained me to calm her down. She shut up. WOW!!!
My 4 year old dog, calmed her down…
The problem dog, calmed her down…
All we’ve had is the initial “in home evaluation” a week ago. I owe this guy… only $50 to drive 15 minutes out to my house and we kept him for 2.5 hours, and 15 minutes back. I owe him 2 hours, if he won’t let me pay him, I’ll at least make it up in recommendations, he earned it.
No Joke, the dog whisperer is an ass. This guy did the same thing I had seen on TV. BLEW MY MIND. I’ve watched videos on how to train dogs, I’ve read about it, I’ve seen it on TV… But when somebody does it in front of your face, with your own dogs… Its jaw dropping… And then shows you how to do it… WOW!!!
Granted, like the guy said, “I’m new, they already have you trained, they don’t know what to expect from me.”
I always though obedience classes were BS. Apparently not.
The first actual lesson is tomorrow, I’m very optimistic from what has been accomplished so far, without a lesson, just an evaluation.
Then again, he’s just training people to train dogs, so my little lady and I are going to school tomorrow… The dogs are just an accessory.
I’m excited… I really want good dogs. So far it has been so simple, and its only been a week, and its been night and day…
I’m going to have 3 happy well behaved dogs.
No advertisement here, but just some simple stuff and its been like night and day.
Here is pic… The white one is the young one, the brown one is the “little dummy” and the black one is the “big dummy”. 3 weeks ago that little white dog tore that big black dog to hell, the big black dog had to go to the vet and they shaved her head…Lots of problems.!!
