Tricks to Train Your Puppy Explained By A Pro

Jennifer Arnold is one of the most famous dogs trainers of the United States and possibly of the world. Her method is unique because the dogs that have been educated through her non-profit association Canine Assistans, based in Milton in Georgia, have been educated not only to bring the ball back or bark when someone rings your door bell: she has trained service dogs for people with physical disabilities and special needs. These dogs are uniquely trained because they don’t just do respond to specific commands, these dogs look for a solution if something goes wrong, they think (although their way of thinking is very different than ours!). To achieve this truly remarkable result that has changed her life (Jennifer Arnold has develop multiple sclerosis while a teenager) this lady with big blue eyes and an infinite love for animals has invented a method of training based on observing the dog’s spontaneous behavior and understanding of dogs’ capabilities, intelligence, sensitivity, and extra-sensory skills. This particular method has provided the basis for her book Through a Dog’s Eyes. This book is very different compared to other books because Jennifer Arnold’s method is based on teaching dogs to make choices through kindness and encouragement rather than fear and submission and she is very disconsolate by seeing many of the training methods used today. “I disapprove and I feel that the methods of management and education that are popular lately are completely unworthy…Choke and electric collars are still being used today and I feel that this cruelty that must come to an end.”

Here are some tricks suggested by Jennifer Arnold to train your puppy

Why is training a key element to developing the potential of a puppy?

For all mammals, not just for dogs, an extraordinary amount of teachings about what is normal and acceptable comes in the first part of their lives. An early exposure to a positive training thus allows puppies to get to adulthood with the ability to recognize everyday environment places, such as railway stations, things and even people cycling as part of their lives.

This training method is based on the love and tenderness. How does it works?

In this teaching method which is based on the choices, everything is positive. The only type of correction that is used is the absence of a reward. Choosing only the encouragement and rewards you can teach any dog ​​to put into practice the behaviors that are suggested, without effort and with enthusiasm. Allowing a dog to decide to do what you are asking (either because he wants a reward, or because it remembers that putting in action what is being asked, has obtained benefits in the past ) means you have a dog that is happy to repeat the same behavior again in the future.

Tricks that can be helpful to train a puppy?

One of my favorite tricks explained by Jennifer Arnold, which i sometimes use myself, is to put peanut butter on a long wooden spoon and then freeze it. When I want to teach a puppy to walk calmly at my side, I begin to hold the frozen spoon so that, during the walk, the puppy can lick it if he decides to do so. Once the dog has started walking regularly at my side, I offer the peanut butter for only half the time of the walk, then a third, until I use the spoon occasionally. After the initial training, the puppy no longer needs any external reward. The act of walking by my side makes him feel good because of the good memories created by the peanut butter.

What does looking at the world through a dog’s eyes mean?

When we try to see the world through the eyes of dogs, we must first understand how they receive input from the environment, how their senses work, how they process the information they receive, and how they feel and think. We will never know exactly how dogs perceive the world, but science and experience have now given us enough information to make reasonable assumptions.

Do dogs have a personality?

Dogs clearly have a personality. Some dogs are outgoing and courageous. Others are shy and cautious. Some dogs love to have a constant social interaction and others prefer to spend time alone. There are some very valid tests, now available online, which allow owners to know what kind of personality their dog has and how to best interact with that specific personality.

What does teaching our dog to choose mean?

Giving the dog a choice, or at least the illusion of choice, means to allow it to be more likely to repeat in the future the behavior he is asked to perform. The opposite of allowing a dog to make choices is to force it to adapt. The most important aspect of the relationship between man and dog is the link: train a dog without using fear or compulsion allows you to create a very strong bond with him, based on mutual trust and growth.
