“Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.”
- Isaac Newton
September is rapidly approaching.
This was the time of the year when I would start to feel depression as a kid. I hated summer ending and going back to school.
I also hated school more than most. Having a “learning disability” would mean more months of enduring subjects that made zero sense to me.
I’ll be the first to admit that my brain does not make things complicated- which is good!
If there is one thing I have learned in life it is this:
People that make things complicated often don’t know what they hell they are doing or talking about.
Take my favorite subject. Dog training is loaded with complicated, long drawn out procedures and protocols.
Let’s say your dog is aggressive to other dogs on or off leash. Your dog will first be labeled as “reactive” and then a long list of different training protocols will be offered, often involving complicated methods and techniques that will not usually address the problem.
It can all be very confusing for the dog owner that just wants their dog to behave.
I get it.
Which is why I am here to help. Which is why I will splain what you really need to know to train your dog and best of all it is……
Here is what you need to know to train your dog. You need to start by teaching your dog two words:
YES and NO.
When you want to teach a behavior use the word “YES” and reward.
When you want your dog to stop doing a behavior use the word “NO” and apply a negative consequence.
Can it really be as simple as that?
For the most part, yes it is as simple as that and when it comes to fixing behavior problems like jumping, biting, stealing barking, etc. you don’t have to follow long, complicated methods that tell you to redirect, ignore and “wait for the right behavior.”
The Dog Training Inner Circle is where you can learn how to teach your dog YES and NO without complicated systems or equipment.
