Bad Owners Not Bad Dogs

The Family Dog

There is no such thing as a bad dog … only bad dog owners. Most behaviors dogs possess, are learned behaviors. So if you never get the dog the right type of training … never spend time with your dog … only have the dog around to yell at or tie to a tree … then you will get what you put into the dog … Nothing! This is what you call a bad dog owner.

Dogs are hardcore energy based creatures who thrive to please. Their only goal in life is to eat and be loved. It is important that you show your dog a balance of Obedience, Discipline and Affection, otherwise you create an imbalance in your dog’s mental stability.


Bad Dog Owner

It is sad to drive down the road and see a dog chained to a tree with 3 foot of tangled chain … no water … no food and matted hair. Why own a dog if that is what you are going to do with it. Dogs are meant to be pleasurable … not a pain in the ass. Unfortunately, there are those of you out there that could care less about their dog … it is simply a way to make 50 bucks off of the puppies it spits out. Then, those puppies are passed out to unverified homes, with no vaccinations, no papers and bad advise on how to raise their new puppy.

Take for example, the Pitbull … or Staffordshire Terrier … This breed was once a very powerful breed … a majestic breed, who would die to protect its master. They guarded palaces … ancient cities and fought side by side in battle with their master … all while willing to give up its life for their master. Now … now all we see with this breed is a mess of a dog that is either trying to chew your face off or rolling over on its back, while it pisses itself. Pretty damn sad to see, I might say … and its only mistake in life, was getting an irresponsible, bad dog owner.


If You See it, Report It

People … when you see something like this going on in your neighborhood … don’t hesitate to call your local ASPCA and report them.

Lately, fatal dog attacks are on the rise. We know this because we see it on the news and Dayton Dog Trainer is normally the one’s the news agencies come to when there is an attack. We have provided several interviews to local news agencies regarding these attacks and the sad part is … is 100% of those attacks could have been prevented! All it would have took, was a responsible owner. Instead, a man or woman had to lose their life, simply because the owners were not responsible in any manner. Now, a human being lost their life and the dog lost their life as well. Oh … and the worst part … the owner is nowhere to be found … because even after the attack, the bad dog owner refuses to lay claim to the dog … mostly because the bad dog owner is a irresponsible coward.



Becoming a Stable Minded Dog

A stable minded dog begins with puppy imprinting. It is important to allow your puppy to be a puppy, for as long as you can stand it. What I mean is … don’t try to start instructing or correcting too early. The biting, nipping, chewing, barking and all those other puppy behaviors, are simply apart of your puppy becoming a dog. The first year of a dog’s life is known as the Imprinting stage. This is where they learn who they’re going to be, How they’re going to be and What they’re going to be! They are learning important motor skills and essential social skills.


The Perfect Time

The perfect time to start training is going to depend on each individual dog. Every dog will grow and mature at its own pace. Commonly, 6 months to a year old, is the perfect time to start a training program. If the right type of training can be provided during the imprint stage, then the puppy will have an easier time absorbing the training. We recommend staying away from any type of treat training or clicker training. You will only become a source for treats or pleasure. No real respect will be gained from constant treating. We also highly recommend a Board and Train type of service. This allows for a much more consistent curriculum, as the puppy will be trained in real time. Trying to setup a situation isn’t always practical. Your dog will catch onto to the fake situation real quick and many times just lay down.

For all you responsible dog owners out there … Remember to provide Obedience, Discipline and Affection … Equally. Be sure to exercise your dog and bathe them when its needed. Don’t hesitate to shave your dog down for the summer. They also like to remain cool in the hot summer months. Be sure to keep them hydrated and healthy … Until next time!
