COURSE DESCRIPTION


3. SENTRY (WATCH) DOG DUTY

DOMINATION TECHNIQUES-Passive tasks which instill in the dog that you are the master, which enable quicker, more effective and more advanced training, which make for a better behaved, more obedient, well balanced and functional canine.

     The first task after domination will be to cause your dog to bark. If, for your own application you do not want your dog to bark, then we can achieve that as well. These tasks' will all be off lead once ingrained.


    
BARKING/NOT BARKING;  BARK ON COMMAND;  ALERTNESS TRG.;  DISCERNMENT [KNOWING WHEN TO BARK AND NOT TO BARK]
     DISCRIMINATORY BARKING/ALERTNESS;  AGGRESSION CONTROL;  CALL OFF [BACK OFF FROM AN INTRUDER OR DISTRACTION]; 

     BOUNDARY TRAINING;  SCOUT/PATROL;  DISTANCE CONTROL;  SOCIALIZATION;  STOP/WAIT [O & OL];  TURN AROUND;  AROUND A BUILDING;                   

     PATROL/STAY WITHIN A PERIMETER;  WAYS TO STOP A DOG FIGHT; FOOD CONTROL [WAIT TO EAT, DON'T TAKE FOOD FROM STRANGERS;
     TESTING/REVIEW


    
OPTIONAL:SPOTTING DOG. FOR SPOTTER DOG, THIS COURSE NEEDS TO BE GONE THROUGH, WITH A FEW VARIATIONS AND SOME SEPARATE TRAINING AS WELL.

     GUARD DUTY: FOR GUARD DUTY, THIS IS THE SAME COURSE YOU NEED TO PROCEED WITH. WE DO NOT CURRENTLY DO BITE WORK FOR CUSTOMERS, UNLESS YOU ARE 100% FINANCIALLY LIABLE FOR ANY MISHAPS ONCE THE INITIAL TRAINING IS OVER AND THE DOG IS EMPLOYED AT GUARD DUTY. OTHERWISE WE WILL GUIDE YOU TO THE SOURCES FOR BITE WORK. THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO MAKE A DOG INTO AN EXCELLENT GUARD AND/OR WATCH DOG, EXCLUDING THE BITE WORK. HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE AN OVERLY AGGRESSIVE DOG THAT NEEDS TO BE TONED DOWN, TO LESSEN THE CHANCES OF AN UNNECESSARY BITE, THIS COURSE WILL HELP ACCOMPLISH THAT AS WELL. THE MAIN IDEA IS CONTROL THROUGH PROPER TECHNIQUE AND CHANNELING OF ENERGY. A DISCIPLINED DOG IS A RESTRAINABLE DOG.
    
*note: to reiterate, the tasks I train in which can be used for watch and/or guard duty are just as effective for keeping your dog from performing either of those duties, or certain parts of those duties.

PROS/CONS OF GROUP CLASSES 

   
 With a group class, there are more distractions than in an individual class. However, sooner or later, distraction training is necessary, which is simply commanding your dog to do the things he knows to do, in the midst of distractions. If you don't distraction train, your dog will likely not obey you when there are distractions. By training in a group environment, you will be killing 2 birds with one stone, getting a head start on later stages. Plus, a group environment is a perfect way to help socialize your dog. Even if you train your dog to be a professional guard dog, the last thing you want is a dog that is aggressive towards other dogs. In the event that you are ever attacked by a strange dog, your dog, no matter how socialized he is, is going to protect you. Training in the midst of distractions can take a bit longer to train your dog, if he is only trained in a group environment. However, when you go home and train, that will be in an environment in which there are few or no distractions. In class, I will show you what I know about training canines and be sure that you understand. After that, it is up to you. One or two hours per week in class is just a precursor. To have a well behaved/trained dog, you must devote a certain amount of time each day, 6 or 7 days per week. You can accomplish much with two 10 minute sessions per day, per task learned, especially starting a new task. It really doesn't take a great deal of time per day. Once the dog has achieved perfection or close to it, some occasional reinforcement and/or practice is really all that is usually needed, unless you are using your dog professionally or for guard work. Professional dogs should be practiced daily for peak performance. It is like us humans: once we learn a task, we generally don't have to do it every day to remain proficient, we just need to refresh on it every so often.

SLEE DOG TRAINING

Introduction


AN OUTLAY OF DIFFERENT CATEGORIES OF CLASS INSTRUCTION:  AVAILABLE OPTIONS ARE BASIC OBEDIENCE, ADVANCED OBEDIENCE (OFF LEAD), WATCH DOG/GUARD DOG, BASIC TRACKING, CUSTOM, and CORRECTIONAL.
     Printouts with details on everything gone over in class is included, for easy reference while training at home during class and once classes are over, as well as telephone and email support.
     I cannot guarantee perfect results under any circumstance, though my methods are able to produce professional results. But I can guarantee that if you follow the methods that I will show you, and put forth a minimum amount of time each day outside of class, which is once per week, then the results will be at least quite favorable, even with the worst dog. You need to spend an average  of 30 minutes per day, 6 days per week, training your dog at home. Two fifteen minute sessions at home are the best way, or multiple 5 minute sessions. 
     THERE IS NO DOG WHICH CAN'T BE TRAINED, AND NO OWNER WHICH CAN'T TRAIN THEIR DOG. THERE ARE TWO REQUIREMENTS BESIDES SHOWING UP, FOR HAVING A WELL BEHAVED AND TRAINED DOG: APPLY THE METHODS I TEACH, AND; SPEND SOME TIME TRAINING YOUR DOG.
     THE EMAIL FOR EACH COURSE SELECTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RESPOND WITH SCHEDULE, PRICING AND DETAILS. YOUR MESSAGE WILL BE AUTO PURGED AND I WILL NOT SEE IT. SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SCHEDULE A CLASS TIME, PLEASE CALL 260-568-3021 OR email me.

     There will be email and phone support during class, and, once the course is complete, for the lifetime of your dog, should you need training support. Be sure to look towards the bottom of this page (lavender box), for a short discourse on the pros/cons of group classes.

     I will conduct group or individual classes, either at your residence or at/near mine, as I have a large grass field available.
