    I shot this video a few years back for a buddy here on the forum, but had kept it private.
    I figured what the hell, I'll post it up and maybe someone will learn something.
    I understand some of you will not agree with the method that I use, but please understand that I never hurt my dog, he is a loved member of my family.
    This is super basic stuff, if there are any questions, I'd love to help.

    I tried they same thing with my border collie, but she broke the collar when I had tied her up and a very loud noise scared her. I basically trained her by being the alpha male and put her on her back and growled in her face when she disobeyed.
    I love watching Scout you are dog owner and Scout is a wonder dog. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice video. Even better dog!

    Although I've seen the collars before, I've never seen one used effectively. Thanks. I'll have to remember that for my next dog. I typically judiciously use a shock collar to train, but to be honest, my dog Stanley is smart enough that he didn't really need it.

    You can tell a lot about how a person's children will behave by how they train their dog.

    Good stuff, Joe. Some dogs are just better at this stuff than others, but all dogs have it in them.

    I've never used one of those collars before, but then again I've been blessed with some scary smart animals that seemed to train themselves.

    I'm planning on getting a gsd puppy next week so I'll be starting the training routine.

    This is SO like horse rein and knee pressure training... give the command, expect obedience, and release the pressure when the animal performs correctly... Love the non-treat and the 'pack leader' philosophy...

    "Walking an hour a day..." We could all use more of that, eh? (Maybe that's why you're so thin!)

    Bet your daughter is a pretty pleasant kid to be around too.

    Thanks.

    I didn't watch the video, and never used a collar on my kids...heh.

    But I have raised 3 very well behaved kids, trained a few really good dogs, and broke/gentled a half dozen horses, including a couple Mustangs.

    I have always said:
    A kid is a dog is a horse.

    They all need the same 3 things:
    1. They need to know who the boss is.
    2. They need consistency in what is expected of them.
    3. They need to know that disobedience always has consequences.

    All of this must be within reason, of course, depending on the trainee. Tailored to each "personality."

    Just my 2 cents,
    SFH

    ETA: Seeker's comment on pressure and relief is spot on! The reward for the proper response is the immediate relief of the pressure applied for desired response.

    Thanks for sharing.I have a Labrador,though he is over 3 years old he still acts like a puppy :) I live in an old house and I recently got some of the windows replaced and got some good screens for the doors installed from canglow windows and doors (Windows & Doors Manufacturing Company Edmonton | Canglow) just to keep him from wandering outside.
