Positive Dog Training is a training method, based in scientific studies and data. Its main feature is the absence of any form of violence or force.
Punishment is a very fragile procedure. If someone is not appropriately trained, the chances of doing that properly, are not in his favor.
Proof: Most of the times we will punish a dog, it will not have a result and the unwanted behavior will go on right after a short time (or immediately), or, sometimes, bigger problems will appear, for example he will be afraid, he will become wild, make noise or be mischievous.
Ideally, the first two months of their lives, puppies must be with their parents and siblings. That point of their life, is the foundation for the… toilet learning and -through playing with their siblings- they develop various social abilities. Puppies that are taken apart from their first family earlier, have increased risk to develop issues like fear, parting anxiety, biting etc.
Grooming a dog can start from a very young age, specifically after its first vaccination. This will help the dog become accustomed to the whole process, as the older a dog gets, the more challenging it becomes to adapt and feel relaxed during a bath or grooming session.
Inside a dog’s nail, there is a nerve that develops along with the nail. If we let the nail grow too long, there’s a risk of injuring the nerve. While this might not immediately cause issues for the dog, it can make the nail trimming process painful.
Hand stripping is a technique for removing old and dead hair using hands and specialized tools. This process allows new hair to grow in healthy, dense, and with a natural appearance. Hand stripping is particularly suitable for dogs with coarse or wiry coats.
This method is commonly used on certain breeds that have a specific type of coat, such as terriers, where the natural texture and appearance of the coat are preserved through hand stripping. It involves plucking out the dead hairs by hand, which encourages the growth of new hairs and maintains the characteristic look of the breed’s coat.
Holistic dog training is a different philosophy of approach to dog training that sees each dog, the family, and the environment they live in, as a set of entities that must coexist harmoniously.
In recent decades, dog training has made leaps, but to achieve this, it fragmented into very small and isolated sections. Thus, we have: traditional trainers, positive reinforcement trainers, pack leader theory proponents, veterinary behaviorists, whisperers, dog psychologists.
