Dangerous coaching or Good Coaching

That is Herzhund Charlee, I bred her and she or he is owned by a very good good friend, Staff K9Pro member Candace who additionally runs my workplace at K9Pro.

Charlee is 8 years outdated now and she or he has her BH (x2) and likes to work. She is a retired woman now however  comes out on particular events to flaunt her expertise.

I’ve been the one who has engaged her in chunk work since she was younger, solely me.

She is aware of and remembers me for being that particular person in her life. The one to chunk.

And when she will, she does chunk with the whole lot she has.

One thing that many individuals don’t get is that, that is her HIGHEST type of POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT.
Charlee LOVES chunk work.

She has excessive prey drive and that is the way it has been channeled in her in order that she isn’t going to focus her prey drive on different animals, individuals, automobiles, bikes youngsters and so on.

In fact which means that Charlee doesn’t like me, perhaps even hates me or is frightened of me proper?

Properly, that’s what individuals with no expertise will inform you.

It’s because they merely don’t know, or do know and they’re merely mendacity to get help for “their” thought of animal welfare.

The beneath pic is her proper after the above exercise. She is like this each time she see’s me.


Anybody who has any thought in regards to the emotions of a canine will see precisely what Charlee thinks of me, this work and her life.

Think about Animal “Rights” political events wish to cease this. No chunk work, no tug play, no instinctual exercise.

Secretly however not so onerous to uncover is that these individuals additionally wish to cease people having canines altogether!

They are going to inform you that the coaching instruments that skilled, educated, specialist trainers use, are dangerous. Though these individuals don’t practice canines, have by no means used the instruments, seen the instruments used accurately, they wish to inform the specialists the best way to practice canines.

They are going to inform you that the one technique to practice all canines is with “confirmed, scientific, constructive reinforcement strategies“.

They don’t present the proof however settle for when the coaching doesn’t work, the canine needs to be euthanised.

Chew work coaching is a controversial subject too, however taking a look at Charlee, and the opposite canines I practice, they love the work and me.

There are after all different methods to coach chunk work, placing excessive ranges of stress on canines to scare them into biting is one. 

I’ve been introduced canines which were skilled that means for rehab, I’ve seen canines which have gone to sport canine golf equipment and now concern getting into the sector.

However that’s not coaching, its dangerous coaching.

I’ve labored with canines which were solely skilled with meals solely to turn into savage useful resource guarders and assault their house owners. 

Does utilizing meals create these issues? No. Dangerous coaching does.

I’ve seen canines spin with pleasure to get their prong collar fitted.

Do prong collars trigger that?

No, good coaching does.

I’ve seen canines race to get their e collars fitted, do e collars create this?

No, good coaching does.

I’ve seen canines go to canine parks to “socialise” with different canines many occasions each week since younger, solely to turn into canine aggressive. 

Do you see the frequent denominator right here?

It isn’t the exercise, device, reward or canine typically, it’s how the one who owns the canine arranges these items for the canine. 

What causes them to occur or not occur.


We all the time must concentrate on what precisely is greatest for the canine in entrance of us, mid and long run outcomes have to be the main focus.

Think about a Politician telling a Physician which scalpel or process to make use of in surgical procedure, after all not, however when your a canine coach, be ready to be advised what you recognize and what has labored 1000’s of occasions is mistaken by somebody that has by no means completed a single factor.

I based the organisation “Skilled Canine Trainers of Australia” to assemble collectively the canine trainers of Australia, unite them, present training, help, illustration and set moral requirements of canine coaching and behavior modification.

If in case you have not heard in regards to the PDTA, please have a look right here (https://dogtrainersaustralia.org/)

Be part of as as a canine coach or affiliate member to assist our phrases be heard and our canines be saved.

Don’t be fooled by those that discuss the discuss however can’t stroll in any respect.
