I couldn’t make out who the cartoonist was for this one, so no links or history to share. Nevertheless, it cracked me up. I call it Pavlov’s dogs.

Ask The Dog Guy's Power Steering Dog Training Collar

If your dog is more powerful than you and you’re tired of coming home from a walk with one of your arms longer than the other, you might need a little leverage. Note: The goal of any training device should be to teach self-control, rather than to force self-control. Always learn how to use your training tools before just ‘winging’ it.

P.S. Deal Of The Week

The Beautiful Balance Dog Training With Nature's Template - 'Fully Balanced Companion Dog Training'

Quite possibly the shortest book on companion dog training ever written. 😄 In fact, more of an essay. Nevertheless, if you can ignore the fact that I seemingly ignored every grammar and editing rule in existence (I did), you’ll likely learn more about companion dog training from the perspective of what not to do and why, and what to do and why than anywhere else. Only $4.99 CND, which is about $4.40 US. Click Here For More Information

Help Others Discover Science & Common Sense In Companion Dog Training

My goal in 2023 (and onward) is to provide larger numbers of companion puppy and dog owners with access to science and common sense to counter the tsunami of ‘treat, treat, treat’ or ‘might is right’ misinformation that the amateur dog training world disseminates. I will be doing so via my YouTube Channel, Ask The Dog Guy ‘Pawdcast’, and an increased presence on things like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. (and this newsletter).

You can help me (ATDG) spread the word by:

Do You Need Help With Your Dog?

Bad Dog

I have helped companion puppy and dog owners from around the world (Canada, USA, England, South Korea, India, Mongolia).

I have quite a bit of detailed information prepared that answers most questions. Send me an email with as many details as you can and I’ll get back to you quickly with an overview of how I can help. [email protected]


Subscribe To The "Ask The Dog Guy" Pawdcast

Pawdcast content ranges from responses to companion dog behavior questions, to tips about training, breeds, breeding, rescues, etc. You’ll find the content is very different from most of the guidance you’ll find on the Internet and from people whose training experience seems to be based on watching the movie The Lady and The Tramp and confusing it with a documentary about dog behavior. (Treat, treat, treat, or might is right.) Instead, you’ll find guidance based on both science and common sense, along with the perspective of a 30+ year career working full-time with companion puppy and dog owners and their dogs.
