Amateur Dog Trainers

Beware The Amateur Companion Puppy and Dog Trainer​

It is a sad reality that with companion dog ownership at its highest, very few companion dog owners (or veterinarians, vet techs, breeders, rescues etc.) have been exposed to companion puppy and dog training associated with legitimately applicable behavior-science. What is being marketed to companion puppy and dog owners (veterinarians, vet techs, breeders, rescues etc.) as ‘science’-based training is almost always at best, loosely based and more often than not, cherry-picked aspects of scientific research that were never intended to be applied in the teaching of companion dog home and outing life-skills. In the controlled settings of an agility ring or obedience ring – yes (to a certain extent). For home and outing life-skills, a hard emphatic NO!

When Is The Best Time To Begin Puppy Training?

The earlier, the better is the short and simple answer. It depends is more accurate.

Puppy training falls into two entirely separate categories.

1. Obedience
The Forming Of A Stable Temperament During Critical Imprint Period (Three to Twelve Weeks of Age +/- 1 week.)

How you move forward depends on two things:

1. It depends on your dog’s breeder investment in your puppy before you picked up.
2. It depends on who you hire to guide your puppy’s obedience training.

Cane Corso Aggressive Towards Elderly People Only

Thor (Cane Corso) does not care for elderly people in the least though, and I, along with a couple of trainers, do not know why or what it is. You can usually tie a behavior towards a specific set of people towards things that happened in the past, but we got him at 12 weeks. He has always had a dislike of the elderly, (people 70 plus) and I am thrown by this.
