LAUGH AND TEACH!!! If you’re not laughing with your dog you are both probably not having fun. Let Jill help bring the joy back into your doggie world.
Jill believes that when you understand the natural instincts of dogs, you will better understand how to relate to them.
Dog and puppy training starts two willing partners. Being a leader means that your are calm, confident and prepared. Know what you are asking for, be consistent and have your dogs best interest at heart. As a leader you are shaping, directing and redirecting and modifying behaviors in a positive way. Training done consistently and positively and in a timely manner can bring out the best in your dog and bring you years of joy and satisfaction.
Remember, every interaction you have with your puppy or dog is a training session. Either you are training the dog or she is training you. It’s a dogs nature to want to turn training into a game; you and as a leader must learn to respond and not react to this jovial nature of dogs. If you or your family react by screaming and running after your dog when she grabs a stuffed animal then you are reacting and your dog is in heaven. The chase is on (a dogs favorite game). However, if you respond by being calm and quiet and DON’T chase your dog, then the dog will have no option but to stop running because there is no chase game. Now you have an opportunity to redirect this behavior by offering her one of her own toys, thereby training a more wanted behavior.
Establishing leadership with your dog requires that you be calm,, prepared—and committed. The good news is that 90% of dogs are by their nature are willing followers—so the odds are with you, leader-to-be. Jill offers her dog training services in the Los Angeles Area.
