Dog Behaviour and Training

Dog Behaviour and Training


Dog behavior, is finding the cause of the problem. i.e. A dog barks and people shout it will not stop in the house for example. Dog training is when a dog (preferably young) is trained to sit, down, stay, recall and come back.  People will get amazed seeing my dog coming to me instantly and then walking around me and sit. Each part of this was training, a dog have no brain, they have to be taught everything.
A dog that attacks in police work will bring a man down but it is a game to the dog he has been taught to run after a human and bite the arm but in training the dog bites a special arm sleeve and has to let go when told. This same dog can go into a children’s school and the kids can play and no problems. The dog cannot tell the difference between a man in training who runs or a criminal, as I said they have no brains but training is based on instinct.

Written by David the Dogman, an acknowledged leading behaviourist and people canine educator, the book also includes many articles by other top dog experts from around the world.

It has the unique benefit of the knowledge the author has acquired by managing some of the world’s main Internet sites and forums upon which all the latest ideas and techniques are exchanged by behaviourists, trainers and vets.

All the important training commands and behavioural problems are explained as well as many fascinating facts about dogs interspersed with humorous items to remind readers that their pets are fun.

In addition, for the first time in any dog book, there are the Internet addresses of several hundred dog-related sites to give hours of fascinating surfing.

This “A – Z to Dogs” will help dog owners to return the companionship, loyalty and devotion of dogs by learning a great deal about their behaviour, mentality and requirements.

The aim is to ensure the happy combination of obedient dogs and knowledgeable, understanding owners.

A dog is truly man’s best friend but man is not always a dog’s best friend. This is mainly due to lack of understanding of the canine mentality and what is a dog’s normal behaviour.
No other animal gives us the companionship, loyalty and devotion of a dog. The aim of this book is to give you a better understanding of your dog and knowledge about it from the serious to the frivolous (to remind you that dogs are fun) so that you can give it the loyalty and devotion it deserves.

Whether you are thinking about acquiring a puppy or have owned dogs all your life, I hope you will find plenty to learn in these pages.

I am fortunate in having many friends among the leading canine behaviourists all around the world thanks to the Internet forums I manage. These forums enable all the latest ideas, techniques and problems to be discussed immediately, whereas previously this could only be done at occasional meetings or conferences which were rarely world wide.

The Internet has given me much information previously impossible to obtain.

Many of my distinguished friends and some of the world’s leading authoritative sources have kindly agreed to share their expertise by contributing sections to this book. I am most grateful to them all.
This book is written in the form of an A-Z reference work with more than 400 alphabetical references, some short, others long, so that you can easily find information about any behavioural problem (and a solution) as well as most facts about dogs.
Each alphabetical section is self-contained with cross-references to other relevant material so that you can quickly refer back to a section which you might want to look up at a later date.

As a people canine educator, the slogan in which I believe is “commitment, firmness and kindness”.

COMMITMENT because a dog is for life. Before you acquire one you must be committed to looking after your friend for his or her life.
FIRMNESS. A dog needs to respect you as the dominant person in the household. Be firm and you will have a happier and more enjoyable life together.
KINDNESS. Physical punishment will solve no problems, indeed it may cause some. Kindness costs nothing but I promise you the rewards will be great. Beware the person who boasts about knowing all about dogs. “I’ve had dogs all my life”. People who have had several spouses will know each one was different.

Finally, always remember two things:
· Dogs are not small, hair-coated humans: they probably regard humans as big, many-coated dogs.
· The person who said you can’t buy happiness forgot about dogs.
