Dear Ask The Dog Guy
Dog Owner's Desperate Search For Answers To Jumping, Lunging, Mouthing, And Biting
Excerpt: I’m reasonably certain there is nothing the matter with your Rottweiler, and there’s nothing the matter with you. What is the matter is what you have been led to believe and put into practice regarding how dogs see the world, learn life skills, etc. Click Here To Read Letter and ATDG Response.
Thinking Of Switching Dog Foods?
Here are a Ton of Things You Normally Wouldn't Think Of Considering
I originally made this video for people with puppies but I’ve come to realize that many people often wonder if they’ve picked the best food for their dog (and budget). The video doesn’t steer you towards specific brands but lets you know how to separate the wheat from the chaff, the sizzle from the steak marketing in this highly competitive industry. It has been a help to my clients, I hope it helps you.

P.S. Deal Of The Week
The Beautiful Balance – Companion Dog Training With Nature’s Template (downloadable eBook
Dog Training Without Food Or Fear
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

Help Others Discover Science & Common Sense In Companion Dog Training
My goal in 2022 (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).

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.
