No dog is too old to learn. Baloo, rescued at 10 years old, learned how to be a loving house pet!
At Natural Dog, we believe in working with your dog as a partner and not implying any force to receive your desired results. This is a training technique that anyone can learn and become great at! Teaching your dog to want to please you is far more reliable and desirable than any intimidation, punishment or domination techniques ever invented.
Tip: The use of a clicker is a wonderful tool that aids the handler, trainer or owner in the Natural Dog training techniques. However, it certainly is not required! Some dog owners find it more helpful to use one, while others may not be be comfortable with it, and that's okay!
Why Natural Dog?
Once upon a time, if you got a new dog you would immediately take him to a trainer or group class. This trainer, being top notch and state of the art, would tell you that your dog will naturally want to dominate you. He will try to take over your household, and will even tear up your couch out of spite, thus you had to dominate HIM first!
This meant cruel training practices such at shock collars, hitting, and even choking dogs until they passed out! It sounds barbaric now, but the ideas of domination and intimidation are still out there in the conventional training circles.
