a note from Garrett Stevens: Author of Dog Myths and owner/operator of Alpha and Omega Dog Training
I want to be your resource. This blog should be educational, interesting, inspiring and down-right excellent for anyone interested in natural dog handling, dog whispering, dog training and dog behavior modification. If you have a puppy or dog this blog is for you!
The majority of articles will be written by Garrett Stevens – Owner of Alpha and Omega Dog Training. Some of my articles have already previously been published in the Pet Connection Magazine as I am a contributing author for them concerning all things dog behavior and dog whispering. Please check out my training website (www.gstevensdogtrainer.com) for more detailed information about me or my company – we have an excellent reputation. Any Breed, Any Age, Any Problem!
As I work (literally almost seven days a week) whispering, training and behaviorally rehabbing aggressive, fearful, dominant, anxious, nervous, hyper, and dangerous dogs (and, of course, plenty of normal dogs and puppies too) I have discovered quite a bit of useful info from studying a canine’s natural energy and body language that I want to share in this blog…particularly the info that is not out in the mainstream dog training world as a whole.
Did you know that much of the typical training methods used all over the world in dog training today by the large majority of trainers and behaviorists are based in the use of Excitement and that that is the complete opposite of what the mother and father dog would use to teach their developing pups?
Were you aware that many common dog training methods can actually backfire on the owner as the puppy matures into a dog and learns to manipulate it’s energy to get away with over-excitement (which leads to a host of behavioral issues)?
