Home Sweet Home.

There is a good reason for that phrase especially as it pertains to puppies.  You have a lot of choices when it comes to training these days, including private in-home training, private training at a facility, group classes, and even online courses.  What we are all looking for of course is the finished product…a beautiful new addition to your family!

There are certainly a lot of reasons why training at home is a good option.  For starters, the schedule is much more flexible, allowing you to work around your personal life.  Aside from scheduling, at-home training is usually tailored to fit your specific training goals, rather than the generalized curriculum of a group class.

Once you meet nationally known Las Vegas humane dog trainer Dennis Danskin you will instantly know that you have made the right choice to train your new four-legged child in the comfortable surroundings of your own home.  Call Dennis today and arrange an initial complimentary in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.

Think Carefully Before You Adopt for Someone Else.

Have you given or are about to give a dog as a gift?  While pets offer unconditional love and irreplaceable devotion, you should think long and hard before presenting a pet as a surprise present.  Generally, most animal experts and shelters advise against adopting a dog to give as a surprise gift to someone else.  However, if you’ve discussed this with the future pet owner, it can be a great addition to your 2020 home.

Here are some things you might want to consider before giving a dog as a gift –

1.  Don’t buy from a pet shop.
2.  Do not act on impulse.
3.  Visit the animal shelter(s) several times.
4.  Take your recipient to the shelter with you.
5.  The new family addition is NOT just another consumer item.

All of this comes with this understanding…a well-trained best friend is always better than an adversarial one.  For that expert and life-long behavioral training the right person for the job is always Las Vegas professional dog trainer Dennis Danskin.  Dennis will be your family’s second-best friend.  Call him for a complimentary in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.

The Partnership Between Humans and Dogs.

This bond likely began over 14,000 years ago and was likely originally based on a human need for help with herding and hunting, for an early alarm system, and for a source of food in addition to the companionship many of us today know and love.  What’s in it for the dog?  Well, in return, they received companionship, protection, shelter, and a reliable food source.

The earliest confirmed domestic dog anywhere thus far is from a burial site in Germany called Bonn-Oberkassel which has joint human and dog interments dated to 14,000 years ago.  Experts now agree that most of the dog breeds we see today are recent developments.  However, the amazing variation in dogs is a relic of their ancient and varied domestication processes.

One thing we can all agree on is that we are very fortunate to have one of America’s best dog trainers right here in Las Vegas.  He is Dennis Danskin.  With all due respect to Cesar Millan…when he whispers dogs listen!  If the holidays bring a new four legged resident call Dennis at (702) 327-4744 and get your extended family off on the right foot.

A Plan for Man (Women and children too!) this Holiday Season.

Children are in your household and they are asking that magical question this time of year…when are we going to get a puppy?  Just remember during this euphoric time of year that raising a puppy when you work full time is a difficult task. It involves planning ahead, great routines and some outside help.

Puppies spend a great deal of time playing, chewing and investigating objects throughout your home.  All of these normal activities involve puppies using their mouths and their needle-sharp teeth.  When puppies play with people, they often nibble, chew and mouth on people’s hands, limbs and clothing.  That may be cute for a minute, but that’s all!

Bring Las Vegas puppy trainer Dennis Danskin into the picture.  All you have to do is pick out the perfect best friend for your family, then call him for a complimentary in-home visit.  Dennis has been training puppies and adult dogs for decades so that the behavior you seek is the behavior you will get.  Call Dennis.  You will be amazed at his prowess (702) 327-4744.

Eliminating Territorial Aggression.

We all protect our ground as mammals at the top of the food chain.  When your dog exhibits territorial aggression toward people and other animals you may find it to be unacceptable.  Generally speaking, people and other animals that are unusual and less familiar to your best friend, are the most likely to trigger aggressive behavior.

While most forms of territorial aggression are likely to occur on your property, some dogs may protect the areas where they are temporarily housed, and they may even protect family members regardless of the location.  On the surface it is comforting unless and until they display violent behavior toward people you have welcomed into your “territory”.

This is the point at which aggressive behavior must be contained or you may actually lose your best friend!  Curbing that aggression is just a phone call away with Las Vegas professional dog trainer and behaviorist Dennis Danskin.  Dennis may very well become your second-best friend.  He’ll make a complimentary visit to your home by calling (702) 327-4744.

Think Like a Dog.

Strange advice unless you intend to have that four-legged best friend live with you in harmony for the next 15 years.  Did you ever think that dog mistakes are really human mistakes?  Many dog owners make mistakes because they read something somewhere, or this is what seemed to work for the family dog when they were kids.

Here are some dog training pitfalls you need to avoid –

1.  Calling them nicely, then punishing them when they come
2.  Sticking your dog’s nose in its own mess
3.  Thinking your dog will just “grow out of it”
4.  Using pain in the process of training
5.  Taking your dog back inside immediately after he eliminates

That last one surprises some people, but the logic is that your best friend thinks his time outside is over the second he goes.  Treating your four-legged child with love and respect is not that hard especially when you call on the services of Las Vegas humane trainer Dennis Danskin.  Dennis will show you just what to do…in your own home!  Call him today at (702) 327-4744.
