    Spam has nothing to do with any training...the links that you have provided AND the thread you have posted does read like spam...You may not want to shout at staff members, that is against forum rules ;)

    As for the rest of your post...well that is just outdated rubbish...
    If you want to learn more then hang around and open your mind...we have trainers and owners here that train to high levels with titled dogs to boot....Have a read of the forum, you might learn something...but shouting and getting defensive won't do you any favours :)

    Hi @One Dog Training first off I'm glad to see you're going to stick around. I mean that sincerely, I do hope you do, and I do hope you open your mind to new information.

    I had great danes for years. This is total baloney :Hilarious:Hilarious
    Seriously, dominance theory has been thoroughly debunked. Including by David Mech who coined the terms alpha males and female in the wolf pack.
    Yes, dominance exists as in access to resources, but as far as training a dog it's just not applicable or useful.

    Of course there are multiple styles of training.
    But are they effective? Do they accomplish what they set out to do? Does the dog understand? Is he motivated to comply? Is the method humane?

    Me personally, I'm not dismissing your training, I have no clue about that, I would have to see your dog and how well you and your dog work together to form an opinion on that. But I am dismissing your claim that jumping up has to do with dominance and hunger. Anyone with any modicum of experience with dogs can see how silly that is.

    Sorry you feel we're being rude, I'm certainly not intending to be rude. But I do stand by what I say that pretty much all that you have written about jumping up is rubbish.
    And I too am interested in what your qualifications are :)

    Shouting? Is was to express that it's a different style, that people didn't seem to get. It's classed as outdated or wrong as it's not the generic norm and people got defensive very quick as this style if training obviously threatens the norm.

    Thanks

    @One Dog Training there are many threads going on right now in dog chat and dog training and behavior where you could add your insight.
    Though fair warning: be prepared to be challenged should you offer incorrect, ineffective, or dangerous advice :)

    Thanks for being honest going about it the right way. I will watch what I post from now on to not cause this negativity towards training that's not fully understood.

    I have no accreditation that makes you feel any better or proves any ones point. If it's qualifications that matter in thus business. But I do plan on getting accredited at IMDT as I believe knowledge and being open to other styles is a good mindset to hace.

    Regards to experience I have done extensive full time training and work based in behavioural training who I was a franchisee of. I can't mention the business as it's under contract if we parted ways I couldn't mention their name

    Now for my website I've had to start from scratch in my own business which is what you seen..."the outdated style" as some of you said in a roundabout way.

    Now I'm here starting business from scratch and When most may of gave up considering the abrupt situation. My style may not be the norm but I know it works and Importantly I get happy clients and doggies

    Thanks

    To be honest I think you have to back up any advice or statements with evidence based research.
    As you've already learned we don't accept seemingly random comments without challenging them. For example, can you tell us where the theory about dogs/puppies jumping up because of hunger came from? And how diet changes improved behaviour ?
    These are the sort of questions that get asked, if you can't back up your replies with firm evidence you will lose credibility.

    Please don't presume to know what members understand and don't understand.
    The negative reaction to your claims has nothing to do with members not being able to grasp your style of training - a touch condescending of you don't you think?
    No, the negative reaction is simply that you're saying things that anyone with any experience with dogs knows is not true.

    I think people were asking about your qualifications because they were curious as to where you get your information from as most training bodies agree that dominance is debunked and not applicable to dog-human relationships.

    FWIW, qualifications don't have to be on paper, perhaps you have trialed your dog, had your training together evaluated by an independent party. Or maybe you've worked extensively in rescue alongside other trainers evaluating dogs and getting them ready for new homes, that sort of thing.
    Experience matters too :)

    Ok I'll bite :)
    I'm not one for "willy waving" with other trainers...I much prefer to see what they turn out...


    So, lets start...

    3 year old dog (entire)
    Has a bite history
    Zero impulse control
    Pulls like a train and lunges (hard), will poke holes in other dogs if given the chance
    Dog knows very little, can't even sit on cue....

    What would your training plan look like for the above dog.

    Another 3 year old but a bitch this time (neutered)
    Has a bite history and is HA
    Awesome impulse control unless cats or birds are involved
    Walks beautifully on the leash unless lunging at dogs, cats or people
    Dog has had a little training but only basic pet stuff...

    What would your training plan look like for the above dog.

    perhaps you would like to explain why my last chihuahua was the boss of the next door gt dane
    and
    my present chinese crested bossed a boxer/mastiff around
    cos according to you they shouldnt be able to, given the original height difference

    90% of the time my dogs dont give a tinkers cuss, when i come in, whether i have bags a-rustling or come in on my own, theyre far too busy sleeping
    and
    believe me
    my dogs are total dustbins and can smell a sealed packet of biscuits at 100 paces

    I hope the OP answers because I am genuinely interested in not only his recommendations but those of others too. This could even have the potential to become another monthly challenge thing *slinks off before lynching from already overworked mods begins ...*

    Am I the only one who's not particularly bothered by puppies jumping? I mean, little, baby puppies, not obnoxious juveniles, but a 12 week puppy jumping on me is pretty much what puppies do isn't it? Kind of like biting. They jump, they bite, they're obnoxious little boogers, but that's kind of par for the course with a puppy. That's why they make 'em so cute :D
    They don't have the impulse control yet to be anything but silly puppies. You manage as best you can, teach lots of happy cues to get a solid foundation, and just hold on and wait for them to grow some more neuron connections.
    I'd be kind of worried if a puppy didn't jump on me honestly!

    Completely right...the only puppy I have said isn't right was a 11 week old puppy from a puppy farm that just sat there when I entered the room. Wide eyed and hadn't just woken up but frozen to the spot...I was expecting to get lynched, at the very least my shoe laces be chew toys for example. How many times do stressed out new puppy owners come here and say very similar puppy is doing this that and the other and many say; normal puppy behaviour. Just with them 3 words you are giving perspective to new owners or those who are potential new owners who have never been in contact with a puppy before.
