Don Sullivan Training the Perfect Dog'

Complete control off leash is the attainable goal. Even if your dog will be leashed the majority of the time, off leash training can save your dogs life, for example if a door or gate is left open.

Most people simply dont recognize the way dogs establish pack dominance and we try to establish affection before confirming respect. If you have let your dog develop a habit of thinking it is dominant over you, your dog may react aggressively when you attempt to correct it. These methods work rapidly with puppies and even grown dogs. You CAN train an older dog into new behaviours, it may simply take longer and require some special tools. A well trained dog is calm, respectful and happy. A well trained dog earns more freedom for the both of you.

Expect to tell your dog something 10 times before he starts to understand what it is you want. Then repeat your training sequence until the dog can follow the command 3 times without hesitation.
We see many, many different segments filmed with dogs that have had zero training, as well as fully trained dogs. It is impressive to see the untrained dogs, whose typical behaviour youll unhappily recognize, transform within a couple minutes. Seeing these behaviour patterns play out is great instruction. Owners usually give up too soon because we just dont know how to complete the training pattern.

Whereas Cesar Millan, at least on his TV show, tends to primarily stress the alpha leader mentality over any special tools, Don does recommend some specially designed training tools. This can help the average person who may not be able to develop and maintain a consistent pattern of mental dominance as quickly. It may be much easier to be consistent in training with the assistance of tools that make it all easier. These tools can help lift your leadership confidence at the same time you are training your dog. Humbling your dog does not break his spirit. Hell be happier after the attitude adjustment. Instead of spending a lot of energy on psyching yourself up into Master dominance before approaching your dog, youll more easily relax into dog training with the tools and the leadership role will become comfortable when you see your dog responding. There is no shame in using a crutch when it helps you. With Dons method youll only need the tools as crutches for a few days or a few weeks at most.

Don recommends use of a choke collar or a pinch collar/prong collar if your dog is so strong willed that it is necessary. The point Don makes is that your dog does want to cooperate with you and will respond to your authority when you consistently apply the training. He brings up these additional tools as helpers if your dog is especially stubborn or aggressive. You simply need to be more stubborn than the dog and speak to him in his own behavioral language. When it comes to these corrections, dogs are more emotionally resilient than humans. These methods are not mean, though they may be uncomfortable for us at first. If you think such collars or methods are mean or wrong, watching this video will likely convince you to change your mind on a few things. Making the effort and using the tools for crutches as needed, is kinder in the long run for both person and dog.

Retractable leashes are contra indicated because the point is to train your dog to NOT pull on the leash!
He demonstrates how the basic nylon collars and harnesses are only for your dog AFTER he is trained.
Using the training tools he recommends will rapidly condition your dog to follow your commands by speaking to him in the language he understands. A mother dog will correct her puppies with little nips or bites in the strength that is required to get the pups attention. Dons command collar, demonstrated on Disc 1 at 52 min., is something like a modified pinch collar, made of lighter weight plastic, adjustable length with snap together links.
Dons other training tools for off leash work are lengths of 1/4 polypropylene hollow line. He suggests lengths of 12 ft, 3 ft. and 6 inches. This cording is in lengths that you can grab onto if the dog misbehaves and are light enough that the dog wont notice the weight as it drags along. If the dog feels like it is pulling a rope, it will reinforce that its ok to pull on the leash, so the rope has to be lightweight even at a 12 ft. length.

Your dg will transform from a crazy, self focused, on leash whirlwind into a calm, focused, off leash trustworthy companion.

A common error is to repeat a command after the dog has not responded. We repeat the command, possibly shouting it, as if the dog will respond to the volume or repetition. Don shows to speak a command once, give them 2 seconds to do the action. If they do not perform within the two seconds, physically correct them without speaking. They must learn to follow the first time you speak. Also use hand commands which will help in many situations, including when they grow older and lose hearing.

Don speaks with the authority of experience and you will surely gain useful insights. Dons methods rapidly result in a dog that is trained so well, it can be safely off leash under distraction. It starts with a training period with zero tolerance for overstepping the boundaries you require. How long it takes will depend on the personality of your dog. Even tiny dogs can have an iron will and overpower a human. Disobedience is not cute and will become unacceptably destructive to all parties as the dog ages. Dons approach may seem to be harsh authoritarianism at first but it quickly results in a respectful, mature and happy dog in proper relationship with you.
