When I was about 14 one of my first jobs was with my Uncle Bubba (I really do have an Uncle Bubba).
Uncle Bubba was a loud, intimidating, larger than life kind of guy.
He ran his little breakfast restaurant with an iron fist. He was really very nice, but if you did not hustle you would not last very long.
From his spot at the grill he could see the entire place. He could see who walked in, if the coffee was getting low, if dishes needed to be washed and if anyone was waiting to be served.
He kind of ruined me for restaurants. I still expect the kind of service he provided when I walk into any dining establishment.
I quickly figured out that the entire place ran on timing. It was small and he had to get people served, fed and out the door so another person could take that seat and order.
As I got older I started to learn that so much in life has to do with timing – especially dog training.
This is the reason why clickers are so effective. They improve YOUR timing. Improve your timing and your dog will learn much, much faster.
When I am teaching a dog to walk on leash, there is a technique that I use to keep the dog focused on me.
I reverse directions into and away from the dog. If you have crackerjack timing, you can teach the most out of control, strongest pulling dog to walk on leash at your side within a few sessions.
Luckily, you can learn it fairly quickly. At first you may feel a little awkward, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a piece of cake.
Kind of like learning to drive stick or riding a bike.
So if you’re ready to walk in the tall grass with the big dogs, head on over and check out any of our dog training classes.
Here’s where to go NOW:
