Or does your dog own YOU?
When you first bring your new dog home, you’re full of hope! Hope for having a best friend and companion. Hope to have a partner to go through life with, take places and add to your family.
But what happens when your new dog becomes a problem?
They’re disobedient, reactive, pulling on the leash, barking…the list goes on and on. You suddenly have a dog who is owning YOU instead of you owning the dog. The dog is control, not you.
A Big Mistake Some Dog Owners Make
So many dog owners, usually out of desperation, turn to aggressive or harsh training techniques such as shock collars, prong collars, or even avoiding social situations entirely to try to get control of their dog.
But the problem is, these types of dog training techniques don’t work. Why? Because they don’t address the REASON your dog is behaving a certain way. Until you can get an understanding of why your dog is behaving badly, you have no chance of solving it.
Dogs Won’t Want to Misbehave
Dogs generally don’t want to be aggressive in any way. Most dogs would rather NOT be in control. Remember, dogs come from packs. Only ONE dog is the pack leader, and the rest are followers. So it stands to reason that most dogs, including yours, are far more likely built to be a follower than a leader.
So why does your dog try to take control?
There’s a very simple reason.
Wait for it…
They’re taking control because YOU’RE NOT.
How to Solve Dog Behavior Issues
According to Professional Dog Trainer and Behavioral Specialist, Doggy Dan, the best (and only) way to effectively control your dog’s behavior is by showing your dog that YOU are the pack leader.
We’re not taking about aggression or overpowering the dog. We’re talking about taking very simple steps to give your dog reassurance that you are the decision maker. You’re in charge of things. You make the decisions.
And the best part of this for your dog is – if they see YOU as the pack leader, then they can relax because they don’t have to be!
This is a much happier scenario for most dogs.
How to Become Pack Leader for Your Dog
Becoming pack leader to your dog starts by understanding the way dogs instinctively think. Once you do that, everything else comes easily. Why? Because your dog really (really really) wants to follow you. They really (really really) want YOU to take charge.
Like I said, being a follower is a natural instinct for most dogs. They agree to it easily and naturally because it’s just the way they think. Becoming pack leader really just boils down to establishing yourself as the leader of the household.
Doggy Dan has created a dog training program called, The Dog Calming Code. The program consists of 5 steps to become pack leader to your dog. Getting your dog to see you as the pack leader literally solves ALL dog behavior problems.
The reason why The Dog Calming Code is so effective is that it shows your dog that they no longer have to protect anything. They don’t have to take control of any situation. They’ll know they can trust YOU to handle every situation, leaving them able to live a calm and happy and relaxed life!
Again, it’s crucial for your dog that you are in charge, so they don’t have to be.
Once they see you as the one in charge, they’ll instinctively look to YOU for guidance in any situation.
Want to Get Control of Your Dog?
Try The Dog Calming Code. Relieve your dog from the burden of being the leader. Once you do that, you’ll see your beloved best friend transform into a calm, happy dog right before your ideas. It’s not only the best way to get control of your dog, it’s also the most kind, loving thing you’ll ever do for your pup!
