Rescuing a new best friend for the holiday has long been a
pastime of many Las Vegas residents.With the inception of the Golden Knights, hockey has become a new local
passion.Now, the two have combined to
captivate us here in the valley.Meet
Benny, a 5 year old Golden Retriever rescue who loves to ice skate!
You can Google Las Vegas rescue dog learns to ice skate to

itself.It is just another of the
thousands of stories on how rescue canines have been given a forever home by
Las Vegas residents and become a family’s best friend.

You have heard of the studies that show a well-behaved
four-legged child in your home decreases stress, increases fitness (for both
parties), and just puts a smile on your face in general (don’t believe anyone
who says that your dog DOES NOT smile).There is even a direct result in lower blood pressure and cholesterol in
the two-legged family members!
Now the converse.A
dog that bites strangers, does not properly socialize with family members in
the home and has an aversion to other pets is a hazard to your overall health.That bond between you and your beloved best
friend is sacrosanct and you want to do whatever you can to promote harmony in

holding up very well, thank you!The
truth is, Dennis will turn your terrified new addition to your family into the
best component of the household.Call

"This spectacular Henderson WinterFest celebration will be fun for the
entire family with continuous entertainment, games, art show,
gingerbread houses, festival of trees, craft vendors, food vendors,
children's activities and a new Saturday evening light parade."
Oh, how true that is.If you start training a puppy from the get-go you will not only ensure
greater success, but you will get the maximum joy out of the next dozen plus
years.That does NOT mean that an old
dog can’t be taught new tricks…look at Tiger Woods!The truth is, if you have a puppy under 6
months old let’s get to it.
Just weeks ago, your new four-legged child was jumping and
playing with its peers.You know that’s
true…puppies come with same-age siblings and the behavior that they displayed
just weeks ago is simply no longer acceptable.They were born to live in your forever home.You will be doing them an enormous favor by
teaching them the ways of your household.
To achieve that beautiful balance, it is important to seek
the advice and methods of a professional puppy trainer.If you live in the Las Vegas Valley you
should know the name Dennis Danskin.He
has been training our area’s dogs and puppies for over five decades.Please call him for a free in-home visit at
NO, NO, and NO.How
many times have we used that word in our lifetimes?Chances are, we have uttered it more often
than YES.Positive reinforcement vs.
negative reinforcement.It is an ongoing
discussion in the workplace, child rearing, personal growth, and in the world
of dog training as well.
One example of negative reinforcement is when the dog’s
bottom is pushed to force it into the sitting position.Another example of negative reinforcement is
often used when working with a dog that is afraid of things such as other
dogs.Negative reinforcement comes with
risk.One 2014 study shows that dogs
trained in this manner are 3 times more likely to display aggression among family
Come on now, you really don’t want that for the next dozen
years or so, do you?Dennis Danskin, a
nationally renowned humane dog trainer right here in Las Vegas practices
positive NOT negative reinforcement.Please visit his website at www.trainhumane.net.Then give him a call for a complimentary
in-home visit at (702) 327-4744.
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 www.trainhumane.net. Please reconsider that shock collar until you have called Dennis Danskin at (702) 327-4744.
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
www.trainhumane.net.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.
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.
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.
That old adage has gone out with the horse and buggy.Yes, you CAN teach an older four-legged
addition to your household new behavioral patterns.As a matter of fact, it may be absolutely
essential when you adopt a new dog (new to your family) from somewhere that
does not know their “story”.
There is the obvious…potty training.Your new furry friend may be afraid of
everything.Then there is crate training
of a dog that may have never experienced such things.Of course, loud noises can trigger erratic
behavior including barking which you may want to discourage in your
household.Also, how does the new
addition get along with kids?
There are a myriad of things that your new (not so much a
puppy any more) may need to learn or re-learn.That is why you call on the half-century of expertise that Las Vegas
humane dog trainer Dennis Danskin brings.He has trained young and old, large and small breeds since the 60’s (Not
1860’s…it just seems like it!) Call Dennis for a free in-home visit at (702)
