Daily Training Tips: Beginner Obedience Heel-to-Sit

primal canine bay area dog training

Here's a quick video on how we introduce the sit command to new dogs during a heel. Count comes from an amazing bloodline (Homie Blood) but was kept in a backyard most of his life, so he had no idea of the real world and when he was introduced to it he froze. We took a couple weeks to re-imprint and socialize him with the pack now he is in first steps of our training program and has come ALLLLLONG way!..

Like i tell all of my clients there is no bad dogs, there is just bad or miseducated owners. In my pack i have no clean slates or working line bred dogs, we take pound puppies and turn them into full fledged service dogs or in some cases protection dogs. This is where the Primal Canine Philosophy comes in, we re-work the nerves and train these dogs with compassion and communicate with them the way you should.

Introducing a New Dog to Your Pack - Video

introducing a new dog primal canine dog training san jose

The introduction of a new dog to a home with existing dogs can be a bit tricky and should be taken very seriously. When introducing a new dog to your current pack there are a few things to take into consideration.. 1. Are you your current dog(s) pack leader? - A dog without a strong stable pack leader will feel the need to go out of their way to protect the pack and may lash out on the new addition. Also a dog that is not sure in their leader will under go a huge amount of stress which is not good for your dog health.

2. Do you use a crate?- A crate is the safest way to introduce a dog into a household with a current dog or dogs, this way your newest member will feel safe and secure in their crate while your dogs can see and smell them without any threat of a fight.

3. Does your current dog(s) display dog aggression?- This maybe one of the most crucial parts to take into consideration and is best to be dealt with before you add a new dog into your house. The best way to deal with this is to contact your local dog trainer for some advice and training classes, remember not all dogs have to like each other but ALL dogs must display manners when around other dogs.

There is much more to add to this short post, so if you're interested in adding a new dog to your pack please contact us at info@primalcanine.com or to set up your FREE evaluation please contact us at 408.915.6173

Having Fun While Training - Video

primal canine dog training marilyn

The most important part of training (in our world) is to make sure you and your pup have fun during your training sessions, we want your dog to want to work for you and enjoy it versus working to avoid correction. We strive for that big goofy dog smile by the end of every training session, after all a well-trained happy dog is a full filled dog. Here is a quick video of a "play drive" training session with our dog Marilyn, she was a rescue we got from a local shelter. When we first took her home we had no idea the extent of her mental as well as physical health problems, she was extremely insecure and scared of everything (she was terrified of the dark) during regular training sessions she would shut down(goes to a down shakes and wont move) at the first small correction, that limited her growth un till we found her drive. Once we noticed Marilyn had a strong prey drive we used it to break her from shutting down during obedience and that shot her training though the roof when it came to her ability to learn and overcome her insecurities. Marilyn is now a well-balanced service dog and i am happy to say she is full filled and no longer afraid of the dark haha.
