Yeah, I'm glad I got this kind of opportunity, I feel quite honored, since I just love working with dogs As far as I know, he's one of the best trainers in the country, whenever I talk to him, everything seems to just makes sense So, any tips I could use so I won't look like a total idiot, and give a decent 1st impression?

Iam assuming this is a positive reinforcement type trainer?


Aside from the obvious stuff (like be polite etc etc) I would ask lots of questions and be prepared from constructive critisism and learn how to take it. Theres always more to learn and having a set of knowledgeable eyes to tell you what your doing right and wrong is wonderful!

just be a sponge. I know I would... also if you ever see som'thing you don't agree with (like lets say they bring out a e collar and start zapping for no good reason) don't be afraid to speak up or leave. I've heard of people staying in class even when they were uncomfortable with the methods being used.

I would also not only rely on the trainer to further your info...start buying books and sponging off them too...

also go watch a BAD trainer work. Seriously...I usually go to petcos and watch the classes... try to understand why they are doing what they are doing and why its not working. In fact I learn more from watching bad trainers than good ones som'times. Also if you are a PR type trainer watch a compulsion based trainer work. (like field dogs) the better you understand the whole playing field the better you can be yourself.

man I ramble.

Yeah, of course, I wouldn't work for anyone else

Well, I study English language and literature, so taking criticism (not just constructive) is well burned into me by now, lol and yeah, I agree, having someone correct you (nicely mind you, not barking at you without explanation) is always a nice addition.

When it comes to dog training, I first try the tool I'm using on myself, to see if it doesn't cause too much pain or is uncomfortable, as dogs are living beings as well, and not robots. Though I don't think this will happen with this trainer, since his main training collar is the Gentle Leader, and he only uses prongs on extreme cases (never seen him with an e collar).

Yeah, I'm looking for some dog psychology and training books to order from Amazon along with my Linguistics book, so any particular titles you'd recommend?

Really? watching a bad trainer? that never occurred to my mind, thanks, God knows, there's a bit too many of them around here, it does make sense in a way though.

I generally found that the best way is to have 90% positive training, but also 10% corrections are sometimes needed (maybe I'm still not good enough), I did find that too much corrections would make the dog fearful of you though, which could lead to biting in extreme cases.

btw, what do you think of this guy? his videos helped me quite a bit, but I'd like to get the opinion of someone more experienced.

Neah man, you don't ramble, you're quite helpful

I too use corrections...but very very rarely... I found that as I made th e switch to positive training I didn't need them anymore... In time I hope to eliminate them 100%

haha the amazing dog training man!! I have a subscription to him on youtube. Hes great for directing people to basic stuff. He doesn't seem to cover anything advanced so I don't watch him often.

For more advanced and clicker stuff check out this trainer...YouTube - kikopup's Channel

have you read Karon Pryor's "Don't shoot the dog"? This is the ultimate book if you want to know about how animals learn and how operant conditioning works. If you haven't read it I strongly suggest you get a copy Also Jean Donaldson's "Culture clash" is a must must read.

Yeah, the better I get, I find that I need less corrections, though I still don't know how to teach "heel" or "no jump" without any corrections.

Yeah, he's pretty basic, but it's more than enough for most dog owners, not everyone want to teach their dogs crazy tricks (sadly, not everyone cares enough to give their dogs some quality time)

Wow, she's pretty good I'll watch her videos closely, cause those are some neat tricks she's got there

Thanks for the book recommendations, I'll go place an order , btw, any good dog psychology and body language books? I know the basic stuff, but I want to expand more on that.

Jeans "culture clash" book will teach you som' body languange... also "the other end of the leash" By Pat McConnell Is great for other body languange stuff.

Right now I'm reading "for the love of a dog" by Pat McConnell. Its about emotions in animals. Also basic body languange...Really neat read...a little heavy in the begining.

Not sure what you mean by dog psychology...all I can think about when I hear that term is Ceaser Milan. :P

Thanks for the recommendations

Psychology, as in how they think, and act, and why they do the things they do, you know, that kinda stuff. I think the books you recommended already cover this though, so thanks
