  1. I need help, I have a large newfoundland who is only a couple months old. He bites in play and when he does not get his way. Not enough to draw blood, but enough that it hurts and he wont take no for an answer. He's too smart that he just does not feel like obeying, he knows he should not but he still does. Can anyone please help give me a link or advice? This dog is causing stress in my family and we just mentioned getting rid of him. We cant afford dog training either. HELP

  5. Good lord this profession needs regulation. You're telling the dog you want to play and then the dog play bites, which is what dogs do since they don't have hands, and then you hurt them for what you started. I don't know how this makes any sense. If you don't enjoy play biting, then why would you encourage it?

  6. Talking about behavior while denouncing emotion is simply crazy. Emotion is the basis of behavior, and so, it's impossible to talk about both, emotion and behavior as if they are relative to another.

  7. Emotion is the basis of behavior though, so in essence it's impossible not to talk about the two as relative to another, it defies science. So he certainly he talking about something that is emotional, he's just not smart enough to understand such a thing. I'm pretty sure we are agreeing on the same thing, but just to be clear this gentleman just isn't a trainerThe notion that you should (even can) teach a dog not to bite shows how much he really understands about the dog, this is just horrible.

  8. but emotion is universal so while comparing the two might seem stupid it is indeed pretty smart.

  9. The people saying you can't compare the two are indeed about to get an education. You can, because emotion is universal. BAM. GET AN EDUCATION OR GET SERVED. EMOTION IS UNIVERSAL SO TO PUT IT INTO CONTEXT YOU CAN COMPARE THE TWO. a person who thinks you can train a dog not to bite is an amateur. A pro knows the real goal is to get the dog to bite as freely and with as much intensity as possible. This guy is just misinformed and an amateur. I could write a thesis on the flaws of this approach.

  10. Wow! Really lousy outdated advice… Come into the 21st century of dog training , no need to "entrap" the dog and then punishing what you encourage. Seriously?? Check out trainers like Susan Garrett, Kathy Sdao, Kathy Keats…Their dogs are happy, training willing partners…

  12. All your doing is teaching that poor dog to be scared of your hand!! It's not about treating a dog like a child or like a dog, it's called animal cruilty!! Pretty messed up your taunting the dog just so you can abuse it! JERK!!!!

  13. Oh I feel for you mate. All these haters on your page. I haven't seen that technique before, but I will definitly put it in my tool box. Thank you.

  14. isnt that cruel??

  15. You are a horrible person.
    For starters, in order to make these videos you are encouraging negative behaviour and then punishing them for it.
    Secondly, can you not see how scared that dog is of you. You are not being the alpha dog here you are just being a bully.
    Please learn some real, human training techniques based on the saying "Reward good behaviour and ignore bad behaviour."

  16. Yeah it shouldn't be emotional, why is that dog cowering then, eh? Stupid.

  17. That's not being dominant, that's being a tyrant. Hurt other dogs is what an insecure dog does. A dominant dog doesn't need to hurt others to get the to obey.

  18. That is not the way to teach a dog. I've never seen a dog hit another dog under the chin, therefore it is unnatural, and while it might work, it certainly won't make the dog any happier.

  19. @chowchow155 Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with this either. But just because the dog is cringing doesn't automatically mean that it was hurt. It can mean that it was just surprised or that it doesn't want you to hit it harder.

  20. this is badd advice, never hurt your dog or it wont respect you

  21. @burubura you have to do it and give the dog a firm NO. but constantly. the problem i was having at first was i would give him the chin bump and my wife would let him nibble on her hand so when me and my wife start doing it the dog started to learn but u have to include the firm no or what ever stop word u have in place

    Reply
  22. @chowchow155 and what advise do u have to offer because my dog clearly is not hand dhy and he has stop biting since i start using this method. i dont hit him i use my hand to close hit mouth and it works!!!

    Reply
  23. You have no idea what you're doing.

    Reply
  24. Really?!?! You encourage the dog to rough house with you, to put it's mouth on you and then hit it under the chin for DOING what you ENCOURAGED the dog to do!
    That big, muscular dog was CRINGING at your feet after it was hit, clearly that is more then just a "light tap". I can only imagine how hand shy that dog is going to be now. I never want my dogs to fear my hands.
    People please go else where for dog training advice. Some where that doesn't encourage hitting your dog.

  28. @burubura if your puppy does not respond well to the under the chin thing try the flick on the nose, it worked for me

  29. did any one here spank there children when they were naughty? its axactly the same, i donot consider this cruel it is a part of diciplin and the dog needs to be shown that you are in the driving seat not them. however i do not accept abuse of power by a dog owner eg brutality. but a firm hand is needed when training a big or relentless dog.
