INTRODUCTION

LET’S GET WILD!

 

My name is Katya.  I live for Rock and Roll, and DOGS!  DOGS ROCK!

I am a rock musician/singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles.  I am also a true animal lover whose family came from Russia.  I come from a long line of musicians, artists, and animal trainers, who were constantly taking in injured animals.  Birds, cats, dogs, rabbits and even rats were rescued by my family and brought back to health.  These animals grew to respect us because we saved their lives.  We didn’t do it by the book; we tamed and trained animals from the heart.

Consider this book an easy guide to naturally calming and taming your dog.  I like to speak English to my dogs, I like to use body language, and I like to re-create the wild, if possible.  I believe you can achieve a loving relationship with any animal without the use of shock collars, harsh commands or choke chains.

In the wild, one dog is is the leader of the pack. This alpha animal uses no words; he SHOWS the pack what he wants done.  Similarly, your dog must come to see you as PACK LEADER.  A PACK LEADER shows respect and kindness NOT anger.  Wisdom is one of his biggest traits because the entire pack grows to repsect him and wants to listen.  Think about one of the kindess teachers you had growing up in school.  That is how you want your dog to feel about you.  Nobody likes a nagging boss or spouse.  Learning can be fun. Trust me I don’t allow brats in my class but I also make learning so much fun that my dogs want to please me. Plus I serve the best meat in town!

Dogs mainly use their nose and eyes to survive and communicate in the wild.  Consequently they find verbal commands boring and usually don’t respond well.  A dog prefers to be SHOWN what to do.  If you speak your dog’s language you will win his respect and he’ll want to please you.  He’ll be more relaxed and happy.  So please leave your verbal commands for humans and LET’S GET WILD!

DOG CHORES ARE LIKE HOMEWORK

(Problem areas and their solutions)

Yes! Dogs need chores, just like children.

Every dog has a problem area.  Try and work on solutions at least ten minutes a day.  These can be your dog’s chores or homework.

 

RUNNERS/BOLTING OUT THE DOOR

Explanation

Bolters need more exercise; they are enclosed too much.  They also tend to be hyperactive, nervous dogs.

Solution

Put a doggie back pack on your dog to make him more aware of his body mentally, this helps ground your dog.  An hour of bone chewing time in his crate with the door shut will help as well.  Bolters also need new locations when they are exercised.  Before opening the door it is a good idea to put on your dog’s leash and make him do a good SIT.  Then open the door; if he gets up, pull back on the leash and reposition him into a “SIT” again.  Make him hold that position when he sees the door open.  Every dog MUST understand that an open door does not mean it is okay to bolt out of it.  It means to SIT and wait for the okay to walk through, after the human goes out the door first.

FIRST ME; THEN YOU.

That should be your motto with your dog through every door way.

DOGS ARE SIMPLE

Dogs think training commands are boring for the most part. Verbal commands are not their natural instinct.  SHOW your dog what you want and use as few words as  possible.  YOU WILL WIN YOUR DOG’S RESPECT THIS WAY!

Your dog should be your assistant.  I think of my dog as a parrot on my shoulder, watching over me as I do things around the house. When I am standing, my dog does an “automatic SIT or DOWN STAY.”  When I am sitting on the floor, they are on a “DOWN STAY.”

When I start to get up, he follows me like shadow.  I really don’t have to use commands with my dog at all.  He wants to come with me.  I use basic English, such as  “Let’s Go,” “Get Over Here”, “Hey” and “Who Wants to go Hiking.” These phrases are more effective than the traditional command, “COME”.  My energy is directed straight to my dog’s heart, which gives him great incentive to listen to me.

The two elements that give me this power are:

I reward my dog with fresh cooked meat when he does things I want without my saying a command. Also, I rarely say “Good Dog”.  I look and connect with him with my mind, and he knows he is a good dog when he gives me this gift of obedience.

I practice positive discipline that radiates confidence.  Positive discipline enables the Pack leader to have a wonderful relationship with his dog.  Positive discipline is knowing your dog will always do things perfectly at all times.
