I told the owners there are 3 steps in addressing the undesirable behaviors:
- You (the owner) have to change YOUR behavior!
- Remove the reward of the behavior you don’t like.
- Teach your dog the behavior you want it to do instead.
You MUST stop correcting your dog with physical punishment — no more striking, hitting, jerking, yanking, choking, or pinching. You MUST remove the reward of the behavior you don’t like. You MUST teach your dog the behavior you want it to do instead. Winston never threatened me once because he and I did not have a history of physical punishment together. After only four one-hour sessions of TRAINING THE OWNERS, this is the dog we have today. If you or your friends have a misbehaving dog, please tell them about www.pbcdallas.com TODAY!
