Teaching and Training should Result in Cooperation & Control, not Submission
Homeskooling 4 Dogs provides behavioral consultation services and private in-home dog training.
My mission is to see a world where people act like leaders not adversaries; and the dogs are partners not prisoners. A world where people understand leadership is about taking care of those in their charge, not being in charge. And people are happy when we arrive with our dogs, not when we leave.
Glenn Massie is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) who has worked with all types of behavioral issues, and specializes in working with challenging dogs. Glenn's method of training is based on the positive foundation of building trust, respect, and desire. Training should be a positive experience, not punishing. Glenn trains dogs using a martingale collar, or a standard buckle collar. No type of electronic collar "training aid" (e-collar), or any type of choke chain, prong or pinch collar of any type are ever used. These "tools" are not necessary to train a dog.
All training is designed to be simple enough for your dog to understand. Understanding dogs and applying well-reasoned methods is as much of an art as it is a science.
For training to be the most effective a dog must trust, respect, and desire to be with you. Glenn trains people to be their dog's leader and best friend, so that the dog's desire is the giver not just the gift.
Homeskooling 4 Dogs works to improve your dog's behavior so he or she can get ahead in life. Or at least be better behaved and enjoy more freedoms.
This is a book for every dog owner who has said “my dog doesn’t listen”, “my dog is stubborn”, “my dog has me trained”, etc.… This book is short, easy to read and is salted with Suzanne Clothier’s insightful sense of humor, and I highly recommend it! ___________________________________________________________________________________
Another must read for every dog owner!
This book is for every dog owner who desires a better understanding of dogs and especially those who consider their dog, “hard to train”, or has “lack of self-control”, etc.
This is another insightful, humorous, easy reading book from Suzanne Clothier that will assist you in understanding your dog. This book will help you understand the details, because details and context matters whether we are talking about humans or dogs. This book provides insight into training, and interpreting behavior, gaining cooperation and avoiding confusion in your relationship with your dog.
The chapter “He Just Wants To Say “Hi”, should be required reading for every dog owner.
The foundation for all good training is based on a good relationship. Leadership is about relationship as much as it is about position. You do not need to establish an authoritarian relationship to control your dog; you only need to be a respected leader. Dogs much like children need an authority figure that is confident, loving, patient, kind, and self-controlled.
