Re: Protection Training

Like it has been mentioned, if you have the right dog and trainer there shouldn't be any problems. I have some old vids of my dog who was both a championship obedience dog besides one great family and PP dog. Regards http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGUoKQGIUIc&feature=channel_page" onclick="windo...

Dogs can't choose their owners and Hector certainly is lucky to have a owner like you with an area, facilities and time to make his day! Saludos a la madre patria. Nelson "Drago" FCI International CD, CDX Champion "Lasko" CRA 2000 Ring 3 Grand Champion http://pets.groups.yahoo.c...

Teaching the "OUT" by Nelson

[color=darkblue]After much thought (and some persuasion from my wife), I guess I'm at a time in my life where I can feel comfortable in showing my way teaching the "Out". Since I mentioned the article and some people have asked me about it ... well here it is. Hope you enjoy it. Teaching t...

Hi Piggie916, Your question or a post can olny be answered generally. Only if all dogs were the same, reacted the same, had the same threshold, desire to please, temperament and attitude. Some dogs on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest) might need an intensity of 8 to get a proper response. On ...

The Delicate Art of Dog Training

[color=darkblue]Fast food or home grown? In today’s normal everyday life it seems we’re bombarded by all sorts of media and daily interactions with getting and making a faster pace. People seem to have less and less time with each passing day. The normal response to everything we usually get fro...

Thank you for posting these. I enjoyed watching them and it was nice to see an APBT go through all the exercises that my dog and I have been working on in our advance obedience/open class. Your dog does the drop on recall so nicely (slow jog) - my dog runs like a freight train with his recalls and ...

Nice videos, thanks for posting them! I was interested to watch Drago looking away from the other dogs during the 5-minute down. I'm curious to know, in general, how was Drago with strange dogs? Hi Wego. Thanks for nice words. Drago was nothing short of being an assassin with any male dogs or puppi...

Let's not forget that this event got to the media precisely because it was 2 Pits who did it. Time has shown how ignorant people will leave infants and dogs of any breed together without any supervision. Big, huge mistake! Many babys and toddlers have been mauled or killed by even toy breeds by bei...

I know how frustrating it can be. Yet all dogs will respond to this type of training. If ex-pit dogs who couldn't even stand seeing another dog could do it, then much more so our pets who have never gone through the rigors of combat training. Try to find a fenced dog park where you can walk on the ...

Do you think having a college education makes you a professional? Really? Do you think that if someone is self made, they aren't as good as the lucky one who went to college? If so, you have a lot to learn grasshopper. A professional is called professional precisely because they made the sacrifice ...

:eek: Whoa there!!!! For that he'd have to have doctoral degree in that area. OMG For a man with as little (or no) education as he has to make a claim like that is a mammoth outrage. Unbelievable.

I don't see many of the Cesar Millan "FANATIC'S" refusing to believe what the "knowledgeable" dog people have to say just because we are keeping an open mind to things. Wrong again. It's 1 thing to have an open mind and another to have blind eye. Defending the undefendable, refu...
