What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #67

– Hey, everybody, how are you? It’s Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 Training with my dog training tip of the day, tip number 67, fearful dogs. A lot of protocols we
do with fearful dogs, a lot of different training techniques we do for the fearful dogs, but what a lot of people are hearing is you gotta handle them with kid gloves. I don’t even know what that means. It’s just an expression
and it sounded right. But you don’t. Dogs that we deal with, which
we deal with so many of dogs, fearful after fearful after fearful dog, over and over and over again, the magic to the transformation is actually putting pressure on them. Where most people think you don’t want to put pressure on them,
it’s actually the opposite. Oh, that’s not what I’ve heard and the studies say
this, blah, blah, blah. Well, my studies and my staff’s studies, working with thousands of dogs, and a lot of them fearful and shut down and nervous and nippy
and biting and anxiety, the magic unlock to the fear is putting pressure on them. What does pressure mean? It could be everything from holding them accountable for their action. It could be punishing
unwanted and bad choices. It could be by being
demanding of their obedience. It could be by don’t use their fear as a bad excuse, or as an excuse to get away with nonsense behavior. That’s what it means. So everybody wants to keep
these dogs under thresholds so they don’t panic. Excuse my Latin. Bullshit. That doesn’t work at all. How do I know? ‘Cause we keep doing it successfully, thousands of times. People that watch our videos are doing it. People at our seminars are doing it. The reason why I’m
talking about this today is because so many people are struggling, and so many people are
hearing mixed messages. You know, I try my
hardest to stay in my lane and to educate, but there’s just lots of nonsense going on out there. Maybe the next couple of dog training tips are gonna be addressing
some of this nonsense that’s ending up with dogs being killed and owners being stuck,
and dogs being stuck, and owners being miserable because it doesn’t need to be that way. It just doesn’t anymore. So, that’s what I got for ya. Still in Texas. Hotel, take a flight out tonight. Madly in love with you, Jeff Gellman, Solid K9 Training, dog
training tip of the day. Talk to you tomorrow.
