In our training session for today I’ll help design a game plan for training a puppy that likes to bite and nip. I’ll show you how to design an environment that is optimal for training for this type of behavior. It is very much requires a ‘relationship based’ approach.
Other trainers use a “behavior centric” approach. I referred to a previous episode I published (episode 76 if you want to check it out) where some veterinarians published an article about whether or not dog’s were “pack animals”. That study and many like it are done in a vacuum so-to-speak, and lack the broader view of the total approach to behavioral training for dogs. The approach I describe in this podcast uses a comprehensive technique. I think you’ll appreciate the broader lesson in this method.
I’ll break the plan down in a few parts;
Principals and Mental Constructs
Systemic Setup and Structure
Pro training versus anti-training

I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
