5 Dog Trainer Legends

Famous Dog Trainers - Meet 5 Legends

When teaching our dogs obedience, we often turn to some of the legendary dog trainers, both past and present. These 5 dog trainer legends have offered wisdom about the importance of training your dog and helpful tips on how to teach dogs obedience as well as building a strong relationship with your pup.

Controversial

William Koehler was one of the first dog trainers that began his work after WWII. He was the primary trainer for Walt Disney Studios and published a book about his specialized method of dog training. Although some of his training methods were controversial, he was one of the first people to insist that people had the responsibility to train their dogs to be good canine citizens.

Compassion

Another dog training group were the Monks of New Skete. This group of monks in New York bred and trained German Shepherds, publishing a book on how to be a dog's best friend and how to train your dog effectively. This best seller encouraged dog owners to communicate and show compassion with their dogs, training the dog while also bonding and forming strong relationships. The Monks of New Skete's methods worked well with German Shepherds especially, but their principles can be applied to other breeds as well.

Behaviourist

Ian Dunbar was a animal behaviourist and veterinarian during the 1980s. He found that most dog training did not take place until the puppies were 6 months of age or older. The Sirius dog training method which he founded, emphasized the importance of beginning teaching puppies basic manners while they were still young. His work began encouraging dog owners to start building healthy habits with their young puppies, to encourage having well-behaved dogs when they were full-grown. His methods were well-reasoned and many people still follow his advice.

Holistic

Paul Owners began his work in 1999, and wrote books about compassionate approaches to dog training. His work focuses on teaching dog training that is non-violent, working on encouraging dogs to have healthy habits. By encouraging a holistic approach to dog training, Owen's work teaches dog owners that they are not only working with the dog, but also creating norms and habits for themselves. His books give specific methods for teaching dog obedience and he has also created videos which give specific tips and guidelines for compassionate dog training.

Whispering

Of course, any list featuring legendary dog trainers would be incomplete without mentioning Cesar Millan. The Dog Whisperer as he is referred to, works with specifically aggressive and problem dogs. Dog owners who have had problems with their aggressive puppies often turn to his show and publications when dealing with their aggressive puppy. In each episode of his popular show, Cesar retrains an aggressive dog by discouraging certain behaviors and teaching other more positive behaviors. His methods have worked well and many people have learned a great deal about their dogs through his work.

These 5 dog trainer legends are both past and present. Each dog trainer has worked in certain areas and contributes something to the field. Anyone who is interested in learning more about dog training should look into these legends for wisdom and advice.
