Wait a Moment…Is this the Horse and Buggy Era?

Back in a day, humans who trained canines used what I refer to as “negative reinforcement.”  Think of it this way, if your human child misbehaved the punishment used to be a spanking and being sent to one’s room without dinner.  Modern child psychologists have come to realize that this method is simply outdated!

So why would any so-called dog trainer use choke chains, shock collars, and clickers (among other torture devices) to make their best friend behave?  Remember, the operative words here are “best friend.”  My mantra is HUMANE employing patience, confidence, compassion, consistency, and (above all) understanding.

Some may chuckle, but it has put me in good stead with generations of dogs and their owners for over 50 years.  I will continue to train humane for as long as I am privileged to do so.  My name is Dennis Danskin.  For humane dog training anywhere in the Las Vegas Valley please give me a call for a complimentary in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.

Pee Yew…Not Again!

Patience, patience, patience…house training your puppy is about consistency, patience, and positive reinforcement.  The goal is to instill good habits and build a loving bond with your pet.  You may begin house training your puppy when he is between 12 weeks and 16 weeks old.  At that point, he has enough control of his bladder and bowel movements to learn to hold it.

Here are some tips –

1.  Keep your puppy on a regular feeding schedule.
2.  Take her out first thing in the morning.
3.  Take your four-legged child to the same spot.
4.  Stay with him…at least until he is fully house-trained.
5.  Praise good behavior when eliminating.

This is only one of the many humane steps I will teach your new arrival along the way.  All of them are important.  I am in-home dog trainer Dennis Danskin.  It has been my pleasure and joy to serve the Las Vegas Valley with humane dog training for many decades.  Please give me a call for a complimentary visit at your residence…on your time at (702) 327-4744.

When I Hear it…It’s Still Shocking.

Whether you have a puppy with a penchant for persistent barking, or you’d like to train your dog to stay in the yard, you may have actually considered a shock collar.  Let me say this emphatically…NO, NO, and NO.  No shock collars if you intend to train humane as I do.  I don’t believe in them, and here is why.

Here are some things we know –

1.  They provide fast results…if you were jabbed with a cattle prod the same would be true.
2.  Dogs learn fear…that’s no way to raise a child.
3.  They often deliver unintentional shocks.
4.  There is nothing positive about the reward.

Train humane.  I believe in it so strongly that I named my website  My name is Dennis Danskin.  Perhaps you have heard of me.  I have been training dogs in the Las Vegas Valley for decades.  Let’s start with a free visit in the comfort of your home and see where we go from there.  Just call me, Dennis Danskin at (702) 327-4744.

An Untrained Dog is NOT the Canine’s Fault.

Then it is on you my friends.  We want every canine in The Valley to find a home and a new best friend, but it is not about adopting them and expecting everything to go the way you dreamed from that point on.  Have you adopted and now you have a concern about your dog’s behavior?  Is your dog aggressive with people or other dogs?

Here are some other behavioral anomalies –

1.  Your new four-legged friend barks incessantly.
2.  Does it have separation anxiety?
3.  Has it ever bitten anyone?
4.  Do walks become battles of will between you and your new buddy?

These behavioral traits (among others) are something that can be trained with the proper hand.  Enter in-home humane dog trainer Dennis Danskin.  Dennis is human miracle who will come to your Las Vegas area home after a complimentary visit to do the work HE is “trained” to do.  Fifty years of this stuff must have worked!  Call Dennis Danskin today at (702) 327-4744.

Stop and Think Before Making Some of These Mistakes.

Don’t feel bad…it's not uncommon for people to make a few mistakes immediately after adopting a dog.  It's easy to get caught up in the excitement of having a new best friend in the house and start to expect too much of your dog, or realize that you have no idea what you're doing, and feel a bit overwhelmed as a result.

Here are some common mistakes –

1.  Trying to do too much too soon.  Give them a moment to adjust.
2.  Don’t be running around with them doing errands.
3.  Take time to bond…this is a very common mistake.
4.  Don’t ignore bad behavior from the get-go.
5.  Don’t expect perfection on the very first day.

Then exhale and call Dennis Danskin.  If you think you have just adopted a “best friend” he may quickly become your second besty!  Dennis is a well-known and highly respected dog trainer who has blessed the Las Vegas Valley for decades with his humane in-home style.  See for yourself with a complimentary visit by calling him at (702) 327-4744.

These are familiar commands when someone is talking to their dog, but do they address the issues that are at the root of most problems between man (and woman) and their best friend?  The most important thing that needs to be addressed in your canine’s new home is simply this…behavior.  What are some of those challenges?

Here are just some of the common behavior problems every dog owner must face –

1.  Barking…you may like it but ask around the neighborhood.
2.  Begging for food…you either give in or you feel guilty somehow.
3.  Digging holes…do you want your backyard to look like a mine field?
4.  Pulling at their leash…every dog wants to lead the pack at first.
5.  Separation anxiety…this can lead to some very destructive behavior.

These behavioral issues and many more are addressed from the get-go when you contact noted humane dog trainer Dennis Danskin.  Dennis wants to work within your home where the problems (and solutions) will occur.  Contact Las Vegas dog trainer Dennis Danskin immediately and get on the right track at (702) 327-4744.
