Your training may save someone else's life. Also not too far fetched, especially if your dog is one of the so-called ”at risk” breeds, known for their capability and proclivity to inflict injury or worse on people if provoked or if threatened. Or, more likely, if they perceive their owner is being threatened. Humor me and picture another scene. A man is relaxing at home with his Rottweiler Manfred, watching the weekend football game. He hears a knock on the front door, but before he can even get up, walk towards the door and open it, in walks his lumberjack uncle from Vancouver whom he hasn't seen in more than twenty five years. He's big and burly and one of those touchy-feely boisterous types. He opens his arms, strides towards the man with a bellowing voice to give him a big bear hug. Manfred, who followed his owner to the door, sees his master about to be mauled by this loud, huge, human stranger and he instinctively attacks the uncle. A powerful Rottweiler protecting his master versus a perceived human threat. My money is on the Rottweiler. Unless of course, the dog received proper obedience training by his master, who could then quickly diffuse the life-threatening attack with an authoritative ”MANFRED…HEEL!”. Again, I'm sure you can envision dozens of ways a similar scenario could play out that could result in serious injury or worse. Large, poorly behaved, disobedient dogs can be much more than an annoyance; they can be dangerous. Obedience training is imperative. Especially for owners of big dogs. That's all the stories, I promise.
It isn't a stretch to say that as long as there have been human culture and civilization, dogs have been part of it. When society was agricultural, dogs were important in protecting livestock and herding sheep and cows. But as people began to realize how easy it was to train dogs, they began to be used in other agricultural chores as well as in military and police functions. Then dogs were bred and trained for the very purpose of serving people's working need: Hunting, herding, protection and pulling.
Clicker Dog Training – While widely unknown to many dog parents, arguably one of the best dog training aids that works well with any breed of dog is the ”clicker.” If you have never heard of the term ”clicker training” before, you have most likely witnessed or heard of examples of this type of training. Skateboarding bulldogs, beer fetching retrievers, Babe the Pig, Beethoven. Sound familiar? Check any of these animal antics out, and you've been amazed by the effects of powerful clicker training and the best obedience training methods in action. The clicker is a small mechanical noisemaker that was developed in response to lead behaviorists' demands for more effective training methods. Aside from its effectiveness, unlike a number of other dog training aids, this form of dog obedience training is very gentle and offers a ”hands off” approach to pet training. What your dog actually learns is to associate the strong, sharp sound of the clicker, which can be heard as far as 20 yards away, with your given command.
