Come When Called Classified Half-Day Seminar
Little Known Tips, Tricks, and Techniques to Get your dog to Come When Called in any situation…
I couldn’t believe it.
I killed Jocko.
It was 1990 and I was on the roof of a parking garage in Hartford, CT. Jocko was a long-haired German Shepherd I had been working with for the past year. I was working K9 Security at St. Francis Hospital, a huge hospital with dogs working in shifts to keep the place safe for employees and visitors.
The roof was the only place we could let the dogs off leash and run around. I would go up there once a shift with Jocko and throw the ball around for him. He loved chasing the ball and this was my favorite part of the day.
I had done this hundreds of times with Jocko. On this day the ball took a weird hop and it went over the guardrail.
I watched in horror as Jocko hit the gas and ran full steam ahead for the ball. In a split second I could see Jocko jumping the rail and falling to his death.
My brain kicked in and I screamed, “JOCKO NO!!!”
Jocko ignored me and kept running towards his certain death. Luckily, my slow moving brain kicked in and I screamed, “JOCKO NEIN!!!”
Jocko stopped. He looked back at me. I called him over. I bear hugged him. I am not ashamed to say it but I teared up thinking about how I had almost killed this wonderful dog.
You see, Jocko didn’t know English. Jocko understood German. When I yelled, “NO,” he didn’t respond. Why would he?
When he heard, “NEIN,” which is German for NO, he stopped chasing the ball.
As you can imagine I never forgot this. This was one of the most important dog training lessons I ever learned. I didn’t learn it from another trainer. I didn’t learn it from a book or watching a video. I learned it in real time.
Much of the dog training information available is bogus and puts dogs lives in danger. The overwhelming amount of information coming from dog trainers is bad. When you are advised to ONLY use positive reinforcement, you are setting your dog up for failure.
There was no cookie on the planet that would have gotten Jocko to come back to me.
Positive reinforcement will NOT solve every problem
Positive reinforcement is great. I use it all the time. Here’s the problem. Positive reinforcement is so strong, so powerful it is difficult to control.
If your dog sees a squirrel they would rather chase it than come back for a treat. The positive reinforcement of chasing the squirrel is hard to overcome. Your dog would rather chase the squirrel than get a treat.
This is where you need someone to give it to you straight. Positive reinforcement won’t help you when your dog is really distracted.
Listen: I’ve been helping dog owners train their dogs for more years than I’d like to admit. Lately, I’ve seen and heard so much bad advice I’ve decided to clear the air. I put together a seminar showing you what you need to know to get real results.
Come When Called Classified Seminar has everything you need to know to get your dog listening to you on and off leash.
This seminar is not for everyone. If you are not familiar with my style of training, please watch my YouTube videos or read one of my books. I am very upfront about how I train dogs. You will have to use the techniques taught in the seminar. Unfortunately there is no magic wand.
However, if you’re willing to spend a few minutes a day training. If you really want your dog to come when called and feel ready to attend, keep reading.
I am blunt because I want your dog to have a better life. A dog confined to a leash can’t experience the joy of being free. Being free to sniff, explore, and exercise. It can be dangerous to let your dog off leash and rely on a cookie to get them to come back to you.
Here is a quick video calling my dog back to me in a distracting situation. This is the kind of control I want you to have.
You can get the same results with your dog. I hold nothing back in the seminar.
Here is a sample of what you’ll learn at this half-day seminar:
- The secret reason why your dog won’t come when called. (This one simple mistake is why so many dog owners can’t get their dogs to come when called.)
- Why it’s a big mistake to think you can get your dog to come using positive reinforcement alone. (Here’s what you can do to get your dog to come back to you every time!)
- The dog training tool that will get your dog to come when called with a 100% success rate. (NOT a shock collar.)
- The absolute best way to use positive reinforcement for maximum results. (This way of reinforcement works on people too. Done right, a human will travel thousands of miles for this form of reinforcement.)
- Step-by-step, the single most important way to establish a trust-based relationship with your dog. (Does your dog respect and trust you? Follow these simple steps and see the change in your dog.)
- Clever games (used by top dog trainers) to play with your dog to teach your dog to come when called when distracted. (Distractions are the main reason why your dog does not come when called. Games are a great way to overcome this problem.)
- Something crucial (and potentially dangerous) you must do every time you call your dog. (This one, simple technique could save your dog’s life.)
- The absolute worst time to use a leash. (Making this simple mistake can teach your dog to stay away from you.)
- The ONE thing you need to give your dog that is more important than food, toys, or praise. (Most dogs never get enough of this and refuse to come when called.)
- What you should do to your dog’s food bowl that can dramatically help improve your dog’s recall command. (This one simple tip can make a HUGE difference in a few short days.)
- Advice dog trainers give that is wrong AND dangerous. (Many dog trainers belong to the cult of purely positive dog training which can get your dog killed.)
- Why the “experts” you watch on YouTube are dead wrong when it comes to behavior. (Behavior is easy to understand. Dogs only do two behaviors and I’ll prove it.)
- How to use a simple “cat-like” move to instantly improve your dog’s recall command. (This natural movement will draw your dog to you like a moth to a flame.)
- How to use the super effective, little-known seat belt technique to get your dog to automatically (1) stop running away from you (2) turn towards you (3) run back to you in any situation.
There’s more, a lot more… Including everything you need to know about electronic collars. There are a lot of questions on how to use them correctly and I’ll show you what you need to know.
