Part I

Chapter One - The Beginning

So there I was the other day in the veterinarians office. To my right was a woman who had a medium sized dog. The woman was frantic. It was as if she were in front of a dart board desperately trying to hit the ‘bulls-eye’ but only succeeding in scarring up the wall with her errant attempts. With each dart sent awry her dog would act with indifference:

Sit!

Sit Down!

I told you that you have to sit!!!! Why don’t you listen?!

Four straight shots at the dart board and four straight misses. After a bit her dog would calm down. Then without notice another dog would pass by and the tournament would recommence.

NOOO!!!!!

Stay away from that dog! I said STOP IT!!

Each reprimand was coupled with some sort of jerk on the leash or spanking or other attempt to dole out discipline, all to no avail. It was at this point that I asked myself, Why do people own dogs if this is how dogs are?

Surely this wasn't isolated behavior. I'm sure that this dog wasn't a terror at the vet's office and a dream dog at home. I’ll bet when she took him on a walk he would pull her relentlessly down the street. I wonder if in the house he engaged in ‘marking’ his territory and chewing on shoes. Probably in the back yard he dug holes and barked incessantly. Everywhere she took him was probably a hassle. He was a recipe for stress and constant worry. Did his owner make excuses for him? Or did she blame him for being a rotten dog and chalk it up to him not being smart? Why did she put up with this dog? Why hadn't she fixed the situation?

Let me ask you something. Is this your dog? Have you had this exact experience at the vet, or the groomers, or the pet shop? Let’s say maybe not to this extreme, but does

your dog pull you down the street? Are you having the hardest time housebreaking him or getting him to be calm when you have visitors?

Ladies and Gentleman, this is normal. There are forty million United States households that have at least one dog and I would be willing to bet that nearly every last one has some issue with at least one behavior that their best friend is exhibiting. But it doesn’t always have to be this way. It is possible to live in complete harmony with your dog.

It is my opinion and personal belief that dogs are to be enjoyed. It doesn’t matter if you have them to hunt, do agility contests or fly ball, engage in personal protection sports, sled, track, or just have them for their value as a companion; dogs are meant to enrich our lives and we are here to provide them with the reciprocal quality of life.

Regardless of the task they were bred for we should also be able to have them around the house as they amuse us with their antics, cuddle up to us, comfort us after a tough day, play ball with us, and do all the other things that all dog owners want from their dog. And it is my belief that we should be able to have all these wonderful canine attributes without all the annoying behavior problems. Don't you agree?

A well mannered dog is the best companion you could ever ask for. Many will argue that their poorly mannered dogs are the best companions possible. The bottom line is, dogs are great. Unfortunately, too many dogs are giving their owners undue stress.

It is for this reason that I have written this book. I truly desire for more people to get more of what they want from their dogs and less of all the bad manners that dogs can have when they don’t know better.

So sit back and enjoy the book. I promise the techniques discussed work. I have seen them work time and time again with all types of dogs. If your pal is driving you crazy, don’t give up hope, together you and I can make things better. If he just needs a bit of a tune-up, well, lets get to work. Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Ty Brown and I live with my wife, our two daughters, and our two dogs, Honey and Rocco. Honey is a mixed breed and Rocco is a Rottweiler.

I began training dogs when I was fourteen years old. I had spent years lobbying my mom for a dog. My parents believed that they could placate me with cats and rabbits and other ‘non-dog’ creatures but it was no use. I had the bug for dogs and nothing but a dog would satisfy those cravings.

In hindsight I don't think my mom knew how deep the desire of a dog crazy boy runs. If you have been there then you can understand. Every trip to the library was another opportunity to pick up books about dogs. Every dog magazine was a treasure to read and re-read over and over. And every Christmas and birthday was just one more chance to test your luck and ask for a puppy, because that year could finally be the year.

Well, my mom finally buckled and my life was changed as a result. I got my first dog, Heidi, who was a mixed breed and a wonderful loving dog. Heidi was a great dog but she had some problems, as many dogs do. She pulled on the leash, she jumped on people and she didn't listen well.

For me this was a great challenge. It was time to learn how to train a dog. I read every dog training book in the library at least two times. I read Woodhouse, I read Margolis, I read Kohler. I read all the classics and more. Many of these were great books but I found them lacking. Most of these books did not give real world solutions and practical training scenarios that could really help me. That didn't deter me and I kept at it. I experimented with the techniques I found in those books and I invented some of my own, some of which I still use to this day.

I got some decent results, but I wanted more. I wanted to work with dogs. I was only fourteen, though, so what could I do. Around this time I found out about a great dog trainer, one who I still consider to be one of the top talents on the west coast. I called him up and asked if I could work for him. He had a big heart and I think he remembered being a young man looking for a break. So he gave me a break. He offered me the chance to apprentice with him.

I spent the next couple years working for him. I started out going to his group obedience classes, doing the odd jobs, and playing the gofer. In the process I was training my dog at home with the techniques I was learning. And wouldn't you know it, those techniques worked. I quickly trained my dog to a level that was enviable to everyone who attended those classes. Heidi became an obedience machine. Anything I asked her to do she was ready, willing, and happy to comply.

Not far into my training I was allowed to help train others. I ran parts of the obedience classes and reveled in the chance to tell adults how to do something. For a fifteen year old kid this was an empowering feeling. I was good at something and I could show adults how to do it too. I had never had that feeling before and it felt great.

It also felt great to understand dog behavior and dog training. I felt like I was part of an elite club whose membership had cracked the code. People everywhere were struggling with understanding their dogs and getting them to behave but we knew the answers. Our club knew how to get them to obey.

Since my experience with this trainer I have had many wonderful experiences in my dog training career. For several years I had the privilege to work with one of the finest dog training facilities in the United States. This facility was one that was dedicated to providing executive level protection dogs.

While working for this company I trained dogs for a clientele list that literally spanned the globe. I was brought in to train dogs for clients in several countries including Spain, Mexico, Canada, and Puerto Rico.

I have been hired to train dogs for clients in eighteen U.S. States to date. I have trained dogs for NBA, NFL, and WPGA superstars. I have trained dogs for high ranking politicians, owners of professional sports teams, Hollywood actors, and CEO's of major corporations. It has been an incredibly fulfilling ride and I am thankful for every minute of it.

I now own my own dog training company. I work with a select group of clientele in my community here in Utah and use the internet as a means to teach people to train their dogs in literally dozens of countries across the world.

These experiences have taught me a great deal with the regards to dog training and dog behavior. More importantly, though, these experiences have taught me how the average dog owner thinks. I have learned some of the best ways to convey the ideas of dog behavior and dog training to dog owners from all walks of life. These are the ideas and techniques that I bring to this book.

The practices, techniques, and theories in this book work. I know they do because I have seen them work on countless dogs in literally all parts of the world.

I invite you to take these techniques and use them. I invite you to train the dog of your dreams. You too will become a dog trainer after reading and applying the principles of this book. You will be able to train your dog and help your friends and family members with the training of their dogs.

It's like I always say, dogs are easy to train. It's the dog owner who is difficult to train. You will find that as you think, act, reason, and 'become' a dog trainer that training your dog will be a simple task. Good luck and good training.

Chapter Two - Dog Behavior and Theory Why Does He Do That?

SHHHH! I’m going to let you in on a little secret about dogs. Every naughty behavior that your dog displays, he does because he gets some measure of satisfaction and pleasure. That’s right, when he jumps on your neighbor, digs in the garden, pees on the rug, sits when you tell him to lie down, runs away when you tell him to come, eats your shoes, etc. he does it because he likes it, not because he is too dumb or too smart or too stubborn or too whatever. And here is another secret:

YOU TRAINED HIM TO DO THESE THINGS!!

I’m sorry, I said it. I didn’t mean to hurt or offend you. Don't ask for your money back just yet.

You are probably wondering why on earth anyone would train their dog to do these things. Well, personally I have never met anyone who has wanted to train their dog to do these negative behaviors. The fact of the matter is dog training is accomplished through active methods and passive methods.

By showing your buddy that when he hears ‘sit’ he should put his rear on the ground you have actively taught him to sit. And by passively allowing your pal to urinate on the rug you have passively taught him that it is okay to do that. You might say that no one 'allows' their dog to pee on the rug, but by not watching the dog or not communicating where you want the dog to go you are allowing the dog to do something that you view as wrong.

You see what I mean? That is why I say that all of his bad behavior have been brought on by something you did, or failed to do. A dog's behavior is ALWAYS a reflection of his owners. Dogs will do what comes naturally to them, ALWAYS. If the owner allows the negative behaviors to happen (peeing, chewing, biting, etc.) then they are training the dog that those natural behaviors are acceptable. If the dog owner doesn't allow those behaviors to occur, and instead shows the dog a different way to live, then the 'good' behaviors become what is natural to the dog.

So here is the MILLION DOLLAR DOG TRAINING PRINCIPLE! The one principle if properly applied would bankrupt dog trainers nationwide. The one principle that is the key to dog behavior and dog training. The one principle I hope you take from this book (Well, take them all, you paid for them after all).

If you want your dog to perform a specific behavior (i.e. 'sit', 'lie down', 'quiet', etc.) you must first teach him what that behavior means and then show him that he must do it when asked. If you don’t want your dog to perform a behavior (i.e. digging, soiling in the house, chewing, etc.) make those behaviors have a negative association in his mind.

Okay, I know. That was a no-brainer, right? You want your money back, right? A little too obvious to be the most important principle, right?

Well it is a no-brainer. It is a principle that is incredibly easy to understand in theory. The application of the principle is where things get tricky. If it is so easy to understand this principle then how come dog trainers are making tens of thousands of dollars every year?

That is where this book comes in. I will teach you how to apply this principle across the board and get your best friend to be the best behaved dog on the block. And here is the most important thing that I am going to teach you:

I will show you how to make the good and desirable dog behaviors become positive in your dogs mind and the bad and undesirable behaviors become negative.

If you can accomplish what I just mentioned above you will find that there are no limits to what you can train your dog to do.

Creating Associations

The key to understanding your dog’s behavior is all about understanding associations. When I say 'monkey' your mind automatically forms associations. When I say 'beautiful' your mind automatically forms another association. These associations are based on your past experiences, what you have seen, heard, felt, smelled, and tasted in the past.

When you hear 'monkey' perhaps you travel back in time to the field trip your fourth grade class took to the zoo. You can clearly picture standing next to your friends and looking in the monkey cage.

When you hear 'beautiful' maybe you automatically travel to a snapshot of your daughter. You can picture her smiling face and can almost hear her laugh.

For some people the associations that are created are more visual, others auditory, and even others feel a kinesthetic or emotional association towards these words. Whatever the case, it is important to remember that these associations are created, altered, forgotten, and remembered on a daily basis. Your association to the word 'monkey' can change after your most recent trip to the zoo. Your association to a brand new word, sensation, or idea can be created on the spot when you are first introduced to it.

Dogs form associations as well. Their associations, like ours, are capable of being created and altered in a single moment. Their associations, like ours, are based on how they perceive certain life situations. In understanding how dogs create associations it becomes possible to train dogs.

That is important to remember. Too often, as humans, we tend to humanize our dogs and believe that they view the world as we do. They don't, and those who can't learn to understand how a dog perceives the world tend to struggle the most when attempting to train their dogs.

Understanding Associations

Canine associations fall under three different categories: positive, negative, and neutral. Let me explain the difference between each association with an example:

Your dog, Buddy, heads out to the back yard and chances are he is going to encounter different objects and experiences towards which he has each of the three different associations. As he goes out the back door he passes the cable box that is attached to the side of the house. It is a small black box that is unobtrusive and hardly noticeable. In fact, he has passed that cable box every day for the last several years and has never even given it the time of day. This cable box has a neutral association and some would even argue that it has a non-existent association.

After passing the cable box he heads over to HIS tree in the corner of your yard. This is the tree where he always relieves himself. Nothing bad has ever happened near this tree, so this area has a positive association for two reason, both because of a lack of negative experience and because of good experiences - being able to relieve himself.

As he moves to the other part of the yard he actually takes the long route to avoid those bushes that have the thorns. When he was just a puppy he chased a squirrel into those bushes and boy, did it hurt. Obviously, those bushes have a negative association attached to them.

After escaping that danger he finds his favorite toy on the ground. It is a hard rubber ball that is shaped irregularly and bounces in random directions when it hits the ground. The toy has a positive association because it gives him pleasure. He carries the toy past the corner of the house, neutral association, right on past the negatively associated electric fence that is protecting the vegetable garden and goes on with his day full of associations.

Actions and areas that have positive associations are likely to be repeated and re-visited. Likewise, actions and areas with negative associations are likely to be avoided.
