    Chest thumping
    Who's is bigger
    One-upmanship etc :)

    In the dog training world it looks like this:
    My dog has a perfect stay.
    Oh yeah? Mine will stay in the middle of a dog park with dogs playing all around him.
    Oh yeah? Well mine will stay while I throw his favorite toys all around him.
    Oh yeah? Well mine will stay even if you light fireworks next to him.
    Oh yeah? Well mine will stay for 3 hours outside a store without tying him up, with people trying to lure him away.

    And it gets stupider and stupider.
    It's usually 'stay' because stay is a dead dog behavior and the crank and yank trainers love dead dog behaviors.
    Or in the sleepybones days it was a recall, because shock jocks love their recall prowess. You know, 'cause a leash, even when you're walking next to a busy highway is just too hard ;)

    I always picture a gorilla thumping his chest, waving his arms around, throwing branches :Hilarious:Hilarious

    My go-to 'willy waving' photo is the one where Bates is holding a hot dog in his mouth.
    Do with that information what you will :D :Bag

    This is brilliant! I'm gonna use this to teach Woody to sit down, instead of getting really excited, when my 3 year old grandson comes to visit. Woody doesn't jump up or lick at all, I guess he's never really very hungry, but he does get very excited and sometimes knocks Lucas on his bum. Lucas thinks it's very funny, but it's not ideal in my opinion. Would be great to get him to have this as a kind of default behaviour when Lucas first arrives.
    Thank you @O2.0 for posting this!
    Bates is a "good un" isn't he!. Brilliant dog! :)

    Bates says thank you :)
    I'm so glad you found it useful!

    Let me know if you need any pointers implementing it. The key is to make sure the dog is successful at lower excitement levels before adding more excitement.
    But I do love how this teaches a dog how to behave around excited, animated children. Which, let's face it, that's the reality of what a family dog will face, and it's a great way to teach impulse control also :)

    Am disappointed that this was stated and then nothing since. Seemed to have another time to argue their methods, show a link/plug to their website and then nothing.

    Surely I can't be the only one disappointed about the willy waving! Ahhh well am sure everyone will continue what we do here. Give advice and help people with out being militant about raw feeding, and outdated training advise and we will continue to have open minds about teaching and learning about dog behaviour, as their is always more to learn surely. We don't expect quick fixes but to build relationships with our dogs. If years of going to school taught us anything that lots of repeatition, adaptation is the key to learning. Although that's really what Kolb's Learning Circle is all about anyway.

    Are you that surprised though?
    It's pretty much the usual M.O. Promote the business, or the new book you're trying to self-publish, then disappear. Happens all too often.

    It would be nice if some of these training gurus would participate in the dog training and behavior forum rather than just directing people to their websites.
    Funny how our members who are indeed professionals in the dog world give of their time and advice freely on here without worrying about drumming up business....

    The moment someone plays the "oh you must be uneducated" card when discussing training methods whilst trying to promote a business is the moment my eyes roll into the back of my head...mostly because it usually means that the OP has no intention of taking part in the forum...

    So, with that in mind and the fact the OP has only been back to delete his post I will close this now :)
