  1. I agree. Safety is number one. I see the training collar only as a measure of protection. 

  2. good BoooOOoOOOOyyyyyyyy…..hahahahaha!!!!

    What I am puzzled by is this. What makes a dog aggressive in the first place? We adopted a Brussels Griffon 3 years ago. He was NOT aggressive at all. As the years passed by, he has bitten pretty much everyone in the family now, I am scared s**tless to even go near him at this point. The ONLY person he respects in the family is my husband! Also, we have NEVER once hit him or treated him badly. It seems as if though he went berserk from one day to the other :-(

    Also, as far as hiring a trainer to come out to our house, there really is just no way for me to show them when these incidents happen unless the trainer is there all day long. Yesterday he bit my mom when she tried to take away a paper plate on the floor after the dog finished eating. So, yeah, I love this doggie but he literally terrorizes our entire family and for no legit reason. BTW! We have 2 other dogs that are perfect, NEVER once bit me or showed any aggression.

    A "remote collar" or SHOCK collar is never necessary the more you delve into the science of learning theory and dog behavior. Not sure if it was just for the purposes of this video but someone who understands the complexity of learning theory and how to apply it best would never allow a dog to go over threshold and demonstrate this kind of aggression in training. Their methods are working a little, but the process is messy and the dogs are very stressed. Could be a lot easier and painless.

    That first dog should have been fixed as a pup , not left to get to that age and have that sort of behaviour tolerated , but then some owners just don't know and that's why there are people like these guys that are needed to attempt to fix the problems..

  7. yvonneost12 says:

    @ 5.52 those guys can't decide if they want to run up the hill and go home or stay in the park , right ??? hahahaha

    Please save this sweet dog, Marlin!! videos on my page. They want to put him to sleeep. He's not a bad boy. He's trained to do every trick including roll-over and more, I have a video of him walking alongside me off-leash after some work. Please help save him from being euthanized. He needs to be out of the city and worked with.

    He's just not socialized so he freaks out. but he can be a perfect dog with work.

  9. hdrtshrd says:

    why dont YOU point them in the right direction then?!

  10. dogert66 says:

    I WOULD consider rehoming the dog. It's not fair that he has to spend 11 hours locked up with little time before and after for stimulation. You can consider dog daycares, dog walkers, etc but this does not sound like his ideal household. That said I would not pawn him off on any shelter, take your time to find him a good home or respectable no kill shelter (especially being a bully breed). It isn't fair to him to be stuck in a home where he has to constantly be on guard and cannot be himself. 

  11. dogert66 says:

    If you do want to try keeping him I would pick up a copy of The Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson so you get an idea of where your dogs is coming from. He's not being dominant he's being defensive. (look up the 4pawsu article on the dominance controversy for more) Discipline is moot he needs someone who understands how dogs learn and that is, like all animals, the four quadrants of learning theory. For more info on that you can either google them, or check out Karen Pryor's Don't Shoot the Dog! 

  12. dogert66 says:

    Look up classical conditioning. This is sloppy work, but it still applies. :)

  13. dogert66 says:

    Well most people care more about general criticism than helpful redirection but: I would start with Karen Pryor's Don't Shoot the Dog, move to Excel-erated Learning by Pamela Reid (keeping in mind that the book is older and the fallouts of positive punishment are being shown in more recent data), and finally for the more difficult dogs that everyone says MUST be taught with punishment When Pigs Fly! Training Success with Impossible Dogs by Jane Killion. I would also learn about stress signals. 

  14. If you understood what we are doing in the video you would recognize we are using the technique of extinction paired with counter-conditioning in most the clips.We reward the calming signal and don't reward the aggression which worked in the past for the dogs.We teach a course and certify many successful trainers in learning theory and also training MECHANICS on when to properly use and HOW to use ALL equipment. calling the ecollar a "SHOCK" collar only shows ignorance to how it is properly used

  15. Also, these dogs have all hurt people and it is my responsibility to humanely teach these dogs discipline to not only save their lives but keep people safe. The first dog in the video bit the owners finger off and hospialized every family member.There is open invitation to anyone who wants to teach the students how to do this easier and more painless and will be able to sleep at night returning the dog to the owner.I'll even pay.Most +R only trainers wont touch these dogs and suggest euthanasia.

  16. Sorry this is Waay WAAAY over your head if you think these results are due to sloppy work.. not everything we do is found in a dogwise book.

  17. Don't know why you are telling us "sorry" as if you are bursting our bubble on something that works. He is being a told "good boy" before he gets a treat and after i touch his leg. His lips are pulled back in fear and his bites are fear bites. The praise also has a calming effect. If you think the training exercise is ENCOURAGING biting, I don't know what to say. You don't understand the depth of what we are doing. Thats why all trainers should go through a specialized school. 

  18. dogert66 says:

    Do not excuse your own behavior by what others might or might not do. You'll never get any better that way. Everyone has heard of trainers from every style (positive reinforcement, balanced, or traditional) recommending that a dog be put down when it needn't be. I certainly have. 

  19. We help dogs, even ones that arm chair PHD's recommend to get put down, You will not find any complaints about us and we have been around a long time. Go to our blog and read about the Phd's at Cornell and how much they helped these dogs. You are just a troll. Typical unprofessional troll that repeats cliche's but is not making a difference. This is a video of dogs that were not hurt, and in fact saved. Troll somewhere else.

  24. Jay S says:

    I need help with my puppy, i'm looking for some direction because i really have no idea what to do. He's a little over two months old, when i try to hold him or pick him up he sometimes starts growling and twisting trying to get away, he also opens his mouth and tries to bite. When he's playing he most always bites my feet and ankles and if i try to move him away with my hands he bites my hands too. Sometimes as soon as i go to pet him he tries to bite me.

  25. The protective gloves are a big help. The owner or trainer can follow through with the lesson, and the dog in most cases will realize that the biting isn't working. The first dog with the food aggression had this "what do I do now" look when the biting didn't get the results he was probably use to getting.

  26. So it's okay for a dog to try to rip you to shreds when you touch it's food, but God forbid you give em a lil whap the first time they do it to prevent it from getting dangerous in the first place. I know people that raise horses. Horses can KILL you easily like dogs. One young horse kept rearing and trying to paw the owner with it's front legs. They didn't want to be mean to it so they would just run it in circles. The horse kept doing it until they followed my advice and whapped it on the nose the next time it tried. That was when the horse was already 3 and the owner was on the verge of getting rid of it. No more problems since then. Why is it okay for animals to bully us? Show it it's not okay from the beginning and it won't be a problem. You aren't hurting the dog any more then when you give it shots. It's for the dog's own good to prevent bad behavior early on before it ends up getting put to sleep for bad behavior or killing someone else or you. Cesar Millan is not outdated. People are just being pansies about it. He doesn't hurt dogs, and more people should treat aggressive dogs like he does.

    Great job guys GOD BLESS

  28. Bless you guys! 
    so may good tips to use with my dog.  wish we had some one like you here in Ecuador.

  29. K imber says:

    Rewarding aggressive behavior is never the right thing to do. You have to wait til the dog is calm and submissive until you say good boy and give him a treat. These trainers are crap!

  30. Not one pitbull in this video. I think that should say something. But hey – I'm just one person.

  31. Eddie Torres says:

    I want to know if u train a Doberman Pinscher.

  32. I do some animal rescue. I keep running into 1 problem that I hope you will help me with. I have a male rottie unneutered, who doesn't dog fight. He gets along with almost any dog I bring in. The problem is the rescues. Mostly the males neutered or not, they challenge my boy. What can I do to stop or correct this as this situation can be dangerous not just for my dog but also for me. I would also like to place the dogs in all good conscious in a home with other dogs if possible. You can also never tell who may adopt a dog like this and wish to get another dog later on. Thank you for any help you can give me.

  33. Ezzie E. says:

    Amazing video. Thanks for the upload!

  34. No thank you. I like new without any damage.

  35. It looks like the dogs in this video are wearing shock collars.  ???

  36. khtervola says:

    With the first dog you should be clear about what you are doing: is it the glove to smell, food to eat, being social and petted or what, not many things at the same time or obscurely.
    The next dog is afraid of hurting it's leg when other person moves it too high, veterinarians do not need so unnatural movements.
    Warm style is good for timid dog afraid of being hurt when handled.
    If an aggressive dog is given enough things to do and stimuli, it can be guided in what are good manners in daily life by adapting oneself that kind of style and giving positive feedback.

  37. Hi, could you share some experience and tips on aggressive male Caucasian Shepherd. The problems we faced with him are : he killed a little puppy inside our yard and have bited a guest of ours, he haven't been socialized with other dogs at all. What can i do to change his behaviour and stop the aggressive attitude towards other animals and humans? I appreciate your time on answering it!

  38. Kerrah S says:

    Can u take my dog lol

  39. a super easy way to fix food aggression is to simply add more food. Also if a dog reacts hostile to putting on the leash, he clearly had been abused with it. So why cause more trauma with you method….check "training positive" on you tube

  40. awesome tips, where can I buy one of the well protected gloves you use, the yellow one in the start of the video?

  41. Lol when you're getting criticism from the R+ only trainers saying you shouldnt use ecollars AND criticism from the Cesar Millan lovers saying you need to smack the dogs around more…you know you're doing something right. I applaud you. One of the first true balanced dog trainers out there. I admire everything you all do.

  45. uradumby25 says:

    damn IDK how you did not jump sky high when he bit!

  46. 'well protected glove, hopefully' ?     Is the guy a rehabber or not ?  The cameraman should stay quiet. Snarky laughs or guffaws are not helping the handler or dog or viewer to have belief in the handler's skills.

  47. Apprentice Earl?! This video is reaaaally old.
