What a Shock!

Did you ever want to shock your toddler to get their attention?  Of course, you would not do that.  So many people however, think that it is okay when training your four-legged child.  Therefore, they think that buying a shock collar, or e-collar, or remote training collar is the correct way to get your dog to do what you want it to.

Go ahead, put that collar on your own neck and see how it feels…I didn’t think so!  Shock collars have a history.  They were first used more than 50 years ago for the specific purpose of training hunting dogs.  Today, they are used as a deterrent to train away negative or unsafe behavior.  Don’t let a retailer tell you that they are humane!

Training humane is an art and Dennis Danskin has mastered that art.  He is the Las Vegas area’s humane dog trainer.  You can find out more about Dennis and his half-century of dedication to canines by visiting  Please reconsider that shock collar until you have called Dennis Danskin at (702) 327-4744.

Why Train at Home.

This could apply to humans as well as dogs.  Why should our four-legged children be trained by a professional in our own homes?  First things first, if your dog is trained away from home he or she may come to you “seemingly” fully trained only to regress when the surroundings change.  What good does that do?

Training at home with the guiding hand of a fifty-year professional is simply the right choice for Las Vegas residents.  Your new family addition becomes comfortable with its surroundings and you learn valuable techniques from the very best humane dog trainer in our area on what to do and NOT to do.

The right choice over and over again continues to be Dennis Danskin.  His website says it all at  Set up an environment that ensures your dog’s success by having them trained at home.  Please make an appointment to have Dennis come into your home anywhere in the Las Vegas Valley by giving him a call at (702) 327-4744.

Behavior 101.

In dogs, just as with humans, there are 4 major factors that determine behavior.  Genetics (what is in mom and dads genes), exposure (what have they been exposed or hidden from?), the environment (what has been going on around them), and education (learning better behavior patterns are what humans and dogs should always do).

How many of these do you control when you invite a new four-legged addition to your home?  The obvious answer is three.  What mom, dad, and the grandparents had in their DNA is probably beyond your control.  This is why you give maximum effort to the other 3 and give your new best friend to best chance to succeed.

This comes with practice.  Unfortunately, in our lives we don’t “practice” dog training.  We may be faced with the opportunity once every decade and a half.  Dennis Danskin deals with this every day of his life and believes that personal, humane dog training in YOUR environment is essential.  Please call him for a free in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.

Training a Pit Bull.

When you see those gut-wrenching scenes from the animal shelters what do you see more than anything else?  You probably notice an inordinate number of Pit Bulls who are ready for adoption.  So many people love this breed, and far too often they are neglected by former owners and now are in need of a loving home in the Las Vegas area.

Here are some things that I have noted over decades of training Pit Bulls and other breeds that have been perceived to be aggressive.  For one thing, teach them to relax.  I always try to train them in a calm environment.  Obedience becomes a lifestyle.  I teach them to look me in the eye.  DO NOT use choke chains, shock collars, or clickers.

Pit Bulls have wonderful personalities and make amazing companions for your entire family.  In Las Vegas, there are thousands of beautiful Pits ready for a forever-home.  Let me help you integrate this amazing breed into your home environment.  I have trained dogs both great and small for over fifty years.  Call me to come to your Las Vegas area home.  My phone number is (702) 327-4744.
