In Spring Our Thoughts Turn to a New Puppy.

There is never a bad time to rescue a dog from one of our animal shelters.  Whatever your timing the bottom line is…you are saving a life!  If you just adopted a dog from a shelter or rescue group, congratulations!  Dogs who are adopted from a shelter or animal rescue can make wonderful pets.  Believe me, I know.

Wait a moment.  Before you left the rescue center, did you get an instruction manual?  You did when you got your refrigerator, your car, your water heater, etc.  As you well know, that new addition to your home does NOT come with one.  It’s the same as a new human arrival only this four-legged variety has already developed some bad habits.

That is why I live in Las Vegas.  It is one of the fastest growing areas in the United States and I love it.  There are so many wonderful opportunities this Spring to rescue a wonderful new best friend.  Let me help with the difficult part…the training.  I am Dennis Danskin, the Las Vegas area’s premier dog trainer.  Give me a call at (702) 327-4744.

Obedience as a Means to an End.

Most dog trainers nationwide teach heel, sit, and stay and believe this is a conduit to overcoming behavioral problems.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  I like to call it the earned respect factor.  I build on that in your home and tackle the most common behavioral problems in dogs.  More than 9 out of 10 shelter dogs have NEVER had ANY obedience training!

Here are a few of the most common –

1.  Going to the bathroom where they shouldn’t.  You don’t remember your diaper days.
2.  Jumping excessively.  That could be cause by a lack of stimulation or boredom.
3.  Excessive barking…annoying for everybody.

I will tackle them all and many more, then show you how to maintain harmony in the household.  My name is Dennis Danskin.  I have been known as one of the leading dog trainers anywhere, but proud to serve the Las Vegas Valley.  Tap into my half-century of experience by calling me for a complimentary in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.

Shock collars are a type of training initially used in the 1960s to train hunting dogs.  In the 21st  Century, shock collars are used to curb a variety of stubborn and unwanted behaviors in family dogs, for a variety of reasons, as well as to train puppies to stay safely within a property line or to stick close by while off leash.  You wouldn’t do that to your child, would you?

Things you should know about shock collars –

1.  Their intensity can be adjusted to a very high level.
2.  Do you want to train your dog through fear?
3.  They may deliver a shock when not needed.
4.  There is NO positive reward.

When you were a kid did your mom or dad ever tell you “well, you’ll just have to learn the hard way”.  A shock collar IS “the hard way”!  Dennis Danskin a renowned Las Vegas area dog trainer does not believe in shock collars, choke collars, etc.  Please give him a call for a free, no obligation in-home visit and learn how he “trains humane”.  That number is (702) 327-4744.

Bad Behavior Starts at Home.

A New Year’s puppy has so many ways to get into trouble in his or her home.  Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!  There are things to chew, places to relieve one’s self, and all sorts of other mischief to get into.  If you have ever had little kids you made your home child proof, didn’t you?  Now it may be time to make sure that your four-legged child is properly trained.

It all begins at home.  There are less distractions than some “training facilities” that may have other canines.  Your home is the most comfortable environment for your canine to learn, and easiest for you and your future peace of mind.  I am convinced that humane dog training in one’s home is THE best way to train.

Let’s meet for free with no obligation.  No, really, if this is not the right fit for you or me or your pooch let’s find out before any commitments are made.  Call me, Dennis Danskin, anywhere in the Las Vegas Valley at (702) 327-4744 and I will meet your new best friend.  I am genuinely looking forward to it!

If You Hurt Me, You Will Get My Attention.

That should make you do a double-take.  Folks, this is NOT Guantanamo, it’s dog training!  Punishment as an adversarial method which includes discipline that causes pain to your dog.  Not only are these practices cruel and harsh, they are also completely ineffective.  When your dog is trained in a humane way, it is much more productive.

Using hitting or spanking as a method of punishment can severely damage the relationship you have with your dog.  If you start using force to discipline them, your dog can develop various bad behavioral issues.  Insecurity and fear will soon become evident in your best friend.  The natural response from them is aggression.

Now, you have a real nightmare on your hands!  Start your lives together with your new arrival by insisting on and practicing humane training.  The best way to do that in the Las Vegas area is visit  You will meet Dennis Danskin.  Then you may call him for a no-obligation free in-home visit.  His phone number is (702) 327-4744.
