Fabian discusses who makes a good dog trainer.
Day 1 is based on figuring out each individual dog’s character and temperament. We must look at the individual first and the breed second. Later we will cover different types of characters in dogs. In this foundation series we will be inviting you into the training room with Fabian and various dogs.
Fabian spends time with the dog and assesses what the weaknesses and strengths are. Here we determine the appropriate level of correction as well the appropriate level of praise a dog can withstand. These thresholds are what creates the perfect balance in training. In this first session, you will learn our direction and placement techniques as well as the entire foundation for the entire program and every command. Watch closely as he handles this pup with precision and timing with little stress to the dog. Remember, we are strangers to these animals. It is so important that you start off the relationship on the right foot.
We must create a positive attitude, you can use food or praise but the dog must self connect to you. A happy dog is a fast learning dog!
Today, Fabian will start out the session at the training headquarters which is the Place bed. He will show you how to feel the dog out and see how easily the dog is following leash guidance from the leash. Fabian talks about when to name commands and the things you are looking for to avoid stressing or panicking the dog. We need the dog to maintain a happy attitude throughout the process, this is the key to success!

Review Last Session. Beginning of proofing (testing).
Review what you dog knows. The dog will tell you where they are in the process. Connecting the Word to the direction.
One review. Once we see the dog has accepted the terms and understands, we introduce the correction phase.
Review and Test Day.
In the 2nd week we start testing or “proofing” what the dog has learned and most importantly that we taught the dog correctly. We don’t go by days here, it is constantly changing the environment and upping the ante on distractions, maybe introducing past triggers depending on what the dog is in training for. Here are some common examples.
Clarifying rules stay the same. Correcting reactive behavior
This covers dealing with over excitement when people come over.
Encourage behavior. Create conflict of interest.
Introduction to e collar as back up. In the 3rd week we start layering the e-collar with commands and linking unwanted behaviors to a “feeling” Again, every session may be different, we do not go by a count by number system here. In dog training there are no set rues to go by. You must allow the dog to tell you what it needs.
Starting to take equipment off Indie.
Clean Slate, Transfer, Commands, Off Leash Connection, Corrections
Examples of different dogs learning the process.
This is how we prepare the dogs before the owner comes for the lesson. The most important thing is that the clean slate is established.
Here is an example of a Go Home for the On leash program
Example of how to get to the point of taking equipment off the dogs.
