The Whistle remember is a sport to engage in with your canine, but it has really serious indicating behind it. It is so essential to be equipped to get your canine to arrive to you in any circumstance, in particular a perilous circumstance. The position is to educate a sound remember 1 that does not have any baggage or what clicker trainers connect with “poisoned cues”. A poisoned cue can transpire thanks to lots of causes.

Reasons a cue receives poisoned:
one. The canine associates the cue with something terrible happening.
For instance: An owner calls their canine to arrive and then you give him a tub. The owner calls the canine to arrive and then you give him medication. The owner calls the canine to arrive and then puts him in a crate. The owner calls the canine to arrive and then does something that the canine feels is a punishment. Now the canine will not want to arrive simply because just probably he will be coming to 1 of these terrible factors and in his thoughts it is much better to just continue to keep his length or continue to keep acquiring enjoyment.

two. The owner experienced asked for the cue about and about without the need of the canine responding. Fairly before long the cue gets to be white noise and the canine will not respond to it.

three. The owner calls the canine to arrive and the canine does not arrive, but when the owner does last but not least get the canine they are so mad at the canine for not coming and they punish him, yell at him, or even worse however defeat him. What canine would want to arrive to a mad indicate owner. If the canine thinks they may possibly be punished the prospects of them coming are rather trim.

The remember is not the only cue that can be poisoned. Lots of canine that are experienced with punishment based teaching procedures will have a great deal of poisoned cues.

If a cue is poisoned, it is ideal to rename the cue and alter the way the canine views the new cue. So, if your canine will not sit, simply because you have jerked him into a sit or pushed his bottom down into a sit, you will will need to rename it something else and make the knowledge of sitting down a positive 1. You could title it “squat” and as long as you reward your canine for “squat” he will now have a positive affiliation to the new cue. I applied the phrase “squat” to just demonstrate that it could be something, our canine do not communicate English, Spanish or any other language for that matter. They do not know what the phrase usually means other than the reality that they get rewarded for carrying out the ideal habits when their owner asks for it.

Lots of cross about canine (canine that at first uncovered by punishment based correction based approaches) will have damaging associations with lots of cues. When applying clicker teaching to assist these canine alter their view of the cues, it is ideal to not even title the habits, but instead have the canine follow the habits about and about and get clicked for it about and about, then put a new cue to it and the canine will before long love that habits again. It is Under no circumstances As well LATE to swap about “cross about” to clicker teaching for both human or canine. It is a really worthwhile way to communicate in a positive manner to your canine and the bond that you will make will just amaze you!

If you are however unclear about something in this video, you should experience no cost to send out me a concept. I am usually seriously superior at responding with a response.

It is seriously complicated to demonstrate each individual part of this remember within just a several minutes.
Oh, if the canine does not arrive to the whistle when you take it exterior, go back again a move and do a bunch of whistles and benefits. Pretty much as if you are reconditioning it in that ecosystem. Canine do not generalize very well and your canine may possibly not know that he must arrive to the whistle in each individual ecosystem or each individual circumstance. It is your position to check him and give him lots of prospects to discover it all over the place. If a canine fails, it is never the stop of the planet, but instead a studying prospect. If a canine fails, it is information and facts that is useful to you as his coach. Go back again a move, established your canine up for success and little by little include these interruptions. Good LUCK!
I desire you the really ideal of luck with your canine! May you both have a romance based on have confidence in and regard!

Have a great day!
Satisfied Clicking!

  2. At the dog park and in the yard she has a recall but since the beach is in our backyard recall doesn't exist for her

  3. When being in an outside environment, I have a hard time with recall. My dog isn't food focused. Inside she's great but outside, she is so focused on shadows of birds flying over. We almost lost her on a tide flat. She just kept on going and going. It took a couple of hrs til she came back. She can run for hrs. We live near the Puget sound

  4. Hi Pam! Nice video. Do you think it's a bad idea to teach this to two dogs at the same time? I want to help a student with two dogs, but when we have tried previously to separate them to work one at a time, one of them can't focus at all. He is so concerned about the other dog being gone and gets really upset. Ideally that situation would be solved first, but isn't realistic in this specific case.Thanks in advance for your opinion!

  5. Where is the clicker,? I donยดt hear it

  6. That is the point! I want to be more valuable than the surroundings and if that means reward with something my dogs love then so be it. Do you work for FREE?

  7. Yeah right use cheese and the dog would never leave your side.. Never mind having to call him, you couldn't get away from him ..

  8. So sorry to hear about the fires! Hope you and your family (including animals) are safe!

  9. I think you could create your own special whistle sound with a herding whistle. I also do think it would work for cats, but it would take a really yummy reward for cats. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Thanks for this great video. With all the floods and forest fires at the moment (July 2013), it is so very important to have a good emergency recall in place.

    I will definately do this with my dog, as I already have a whistle, which you can get in different keys so they know it's your whistle and not someone elses.

    I presume this method would work for cats as well?

  11. The field is at a greyhound rescue center. Good for distraction work that is for sure…

    Reply
  12. I agree completely! I wish that I could whistle, but need to learn. I also think that it might not be a good idea to have ones dog off leash near a 4 lane highway no matter how well trained the dog is. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reply
  13. The whistle is great because it is unique and loud, however you need to be able to recall your dog in an emergency immediately. You don't want to take the time to pull a whistle from a pocket (or get in the car and drive home and come back) when your dog is running towards a four-lane highway. I'd suggest practicing using your own whistle or some unique call.

  14. Of course they are NOT too old to learn! You can train a dog in their adolescence and you should! I am happy you like my way. It does work, the dogs love it, the dogs love me, and we have a great relationship that I have built through my training methods. ๐Ÿ™‚ GOOD LUCK with your dogs! :))

    Reply
  15. Thanks! I will be purchasing the DVD AND the whistle. Also…one more question.. Do you think my dogs are too old to learn? THey are already 9 months old. THey are very smart, and eager to please, but I heard that training during the adolescent stages is more difficult.
    I honestly don't have a problem with the e-collar…..except for TWO…that is, WHAT if, your dog doesn't happen to have his e-collar on? OR..TWO..WHAT IF….your dog freaks and runs harder and faster! I like your way!

    Reply
  16. Nope! I have NEVER used nor do I ever recommend using an E-Collar. I use a herding whistle. I start with normal close range recalls then add distance, new areas, new distractions, until the regular recall is solid. Then I condition the whistle the same as a clicker. Then practice close range whistle recalls and keep increasing my criteria. BTW, it does sound a lot like a bird. ๐Ÿ™‚ I sell a Play-N-Train Recall DVD on my website that has over 20 games to play to get a strong solid recall.

  17. Did you ever have to resort to the e-collar for longer distances? Also, how do you make that sound? That is PERFECT! My GSP's LOVE birds, and it sounds like the tweet of a bird! I am in DESPERATE need of a recall whistle and training, as we frequent the dog park on a VERY regular basis. Today, my dogs BOLTED out of the car, and I'm SO lucky they came back. (read above). My male also likes to play with very small dogs…under 10 pounds. Not all small dog owners read the signs!

  18. I am DEFINITELY going to teach my dog this skill. I hope it works when they are on an "all out bolt," because they are on a mission when that happens, and NOTHING gets in their way. They run SO fast. I'm fearful…..they could have run into the street, into heavy brush, etc. It's VERY, VERY dangerous for dogs not to have SOLID recall. Especially dogs that are runners. SO…finally, my question! What is a "built in whistle" and where in the world do you get one, because I NEED IT!! LOL!

  19. I had a VERY scary situation today when taking my 2 GSP pups to the dog park . They are only 9 months old, and come when called, and even from a distance. However, NOTHING could prepare us for what happened this morning. BOTH decided to BOLT out of the car prior to being released, and prior to the back hatch even being completely up. They were unstoppable. In a matter of 5 seconds, our dogs were 50 yards away or more. Luckily, they ran AROUND THE OUTSIDE of the fence, and came back.

  20. @prettybeautyqueenify Thank you so much for your kind words! I am happy to hear that it is working for you! Keep up the amazing work with your dog! Pam, Isabelle, Bandit & Twix

  21. @JiveDadson I wish I could use my built in whistle, but I have never been good at that. ๐Ÿ™ Yes, I totally agree that if you are in an actual emergency situation that holding onto the dogs collar is a must! Thank you for reminding me. Sometimes I get so stuck into showing the progression that I forget some important pieces! THANKS! Have a great day!

  22. Yes, they were a great distraction for Bandit. I train agility at the Canine Sports Center and that is where we were at. They have the greyhound adoption center there and they must have 20 greyhounds in the back in kennels. So, for some reason they were all going crazy. I was very proud that Bandit could focus and work around that. Good real life situations. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. OMG, that story sent chills up my spine! That is just awesome! I could not agree more! It never hurts to have a back up or emergency plan! Thank you for the amazing comment!

  24. I HIGHLY recommend teaching this to EVERY dog! You never know when you might need it. My beagle got loose at camp and I didn't know it. We were surrounded by all types of wildlife and many acres of woods. I went out as soon as I realized he was gone, blew the whistle and prayed. I heard rustling DEEP in the woods & blew it again and called him. The rustling got closer and closer till he burst out of the woods at full speed! He got a whole stick of cheese in a long "cookie party"!

  26. Thanks for your reply pam !! cool video's

    do you use the look at that game with reactive dogs?

  27. Thank you! You are welcome!

  28. I am so happy that you liked it. I hope it helps! Pam

  29. Yes, just keep conditioning it around low level distractions and slowly increase the level of distraction. If at any time your dog fails then go back a step and work more and more around what the dog will respond to. The idea is for it to become 2nd nature or muscle memory and when he hears the whistle there is only the reaction of coming to you. Keep doing it. It will work! Thank you for your comment!

  31. That was very informative about the 'poisoned' cue. I'm glad you put the info 'out there'. Another great video from a true dog (pet) lover! Thank you!

  32. Wow Pam! What an amazing video!! And the description is really informative, thanks for putting so much effort!
    A great video, 5*s!

  33. Yes that is a herding whistle. They are really hard to blow at first, so when you get one practice first without Jesse! ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to take it out on the PE fields and just blow it as my students practice football or whatever sport we were in. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have not seen the dvd from dogwise. I know that there is a whistle recall dvd, for $20 on clean run. However I have not seen it. If you ever watch it, let me know what you learn. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Hi Pam, I have been considering teaching this to Jessie. Is that a herding whistle you are using? I like the sound much better than the traditional whistle.
    I ws looking at a dvd (from dogwise). Have you seen it?

  35. Great video! This is so much fun to teach and amazing how well it works.

    Reply
  36. uh oh, now you have to get one. hehe! They really are hard to blow if you get a herding whistle. Practice first without your dog. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a nice day!

    Reply
  37. The herding whistle is really hard to blow at first. Go somewhere and practice before you work on the game if you get a herding whistle. You could use a regular whistle that is easier to blow. It really is unique sounding and you can make so many different sounds with it. Of all the amazing prizes I give, Bandit still loves the ball the most. What is Zander's favorite prize? Take care!

  38. That is so awesome! I can get Bandit to come away from some high level distractions like Splash! It really is a fun game for both dog and owner! Hey, I just bought some products from that Olive company. Shampoo and a spray. Thanks for the info!
    Kaine is such a sweetheart! I am happy he loves baths. So many dogs hate them. Mine do not love them, but they do not mind them either.
    Take care!
