How many dog trainers does it take to change a light bulb?
Sorry I mean't to say......
How many dog trainers does it take to stop a puppy from biting?
Apparently the answer is TWO…and this is not a joke.
Take some time to read the email on the right of your desktop or below on your mobile as it is one of many I get regarding this very popular issue.
The story is the same, despite attending puppy school their puppy is still biting their hands and feet! Frustrated with little or no improvement they reach out in desperation to get help from ANOTHER trainer to provide relief! So this poor person ends up forking out TWICE for a dog trainer.
This shouldn’t happen as a good dog trainer should be able to provide you with a strategy that works for you! I’ll let you now and this is straight from my clients mouths regarding the advice they were given which was to “ignore the behaviour or redirect with a toy” only then to add “and it’s not working” (that advice may work for some pups or most pups but as you can see it doesn’t work for all puppies)
I always ask have they given you different strategies to try and the answer is ALWAYS no. They are told to continue and keep trying. We all know the definition of insanity and that is doing the same thing over and over and over again with no improvement.
I’ve been dog training long enough to learn that if something doesn’t work you stop and try something different.
I’ve been conducting puppy training for 12 plus years now and my clients are fully instructed in how to effectively teach their puppy not to bite hands, feet and clothes.
Get the right puppy trainer with the right strategies that work right for you and not others. Get the right puppy trainer the first time, not the second.
