#416 Stop humping dog | Stop Dog barking | What Would Jeff Do? Q&A Dog Training

so sometimes it's always hard to do hey
everybody how are you what's going on hey everybody how are you it's Jeff
Gellman of Solid K9 Training with another Monday night shoots Tuesday
night Tuesday Tuesday night Q&A normally do this on every Monday night from 8
p.m. Eastern Standard Time we do our best we try hard if you're brand new to
my show if you're brand new to my world welcome Thank You Joseph congratulations
buddy Joseph congratulations on the new baby yeah yep if you're brand new to
my world if you're brand new to our show my name is Jeff Gellmen of Solid K9
Training I've got a dog training facility up in Providence Rhode Island
Thanks for the super heart we specialize in aggression rehab we
specialize in behavior modification so we work with some pretty serious dog
serious cases obviously you know we'll help you raise a puppy and we work with
our basic obedience and off-leash obedience this show though what would
Jeff do show it's it's designed to help people that are struggling stopping
unwanted behaviors so it's sort of like a triage problem-solving show a lot of
the answers that I get I'm sorry a lot of the questions that I get the answers
that I give are usually based on punishment because that's how you stop
unwanted behaviors so you hear me talk a lot about punishment punishment is not
abuse I use the word punishment I don't use the word correction sometimes I'll
throw the word correction in there and I say it loud and proud because that's how
you stop stuff so whenever you want to teach something you reward it if you
want to extinguish it you would punish it most answers we would take me
normally about 30 minutes but you're looking about 15 seconds or 30 seconds
as far as your answer now but I'm trying to help as many people as possible and
we have a ton of social media out there we do a ton of Facebook live lots
of periscope I do a ton of Instagram and there's a little just a gaggle of stuff
on YouTube so come check us out and I really appreciate we're seeing like
we're getting a lot of new people here so welcome so much just jump right in
Linda what do we got whats a gaggle a gaggle is more than three how do I
stop humping with in tact dog so humping it's not so humping is not just an intact
thing so humping is female dogs do it male dogs do it whether they've been desexed or not the way we stop humping is we actually if you watch our
socialization yards you'll see our trainers in our kennel staff
have dressage whips it's a dressage whip and they're not like walking
around yielding it like this it's actually like just right in front of
them like a shepherd staff and the way you want to stop humping is you would
the dog would be humping you give a double tap right to the butt you can do
it that way you can also do it with a remote collar to stop humping the only
thing I don't want people to do in the remote collar is I don't want the humping
stopping the humping to be the first thing they use the collar for if your
dog is already collar wise and understands what the remote color is
absolutely use it but you have to make humping then you have to make humping
uncomfortable for the dog or it will not stop it because it's self rewarding it's
self rewarding next how do I stop my one-year-old Goldendoodle from barking
the entire time I'm gone from home Oh barks collar so again only way to stop
something when you're not there is with a remote device I've heard all of
everything else obviously you won't have a good dog that's exercised obviously
but you can exercise your dog all day long it's not going to stop barking
never has never will so use a remote collar and don't use the citronella ones
don't use the water ones on you the air ones use the ones that quote/unquote
shock find the right setting for it and the way you find the right setting
for it I would suggest the Garmon bark limiter the Garmon bark limiter don't
use the A mode and don't use the V mode start it on level one make sure it's
nice and snug on the dog so that snug on the dog for the bark collar knock on
the door the dog barks keeps barking keeps barking, barking it's not it's not the
right level turn it up if the dog barks and then goes oh but then it stops
barking it's the right level so um the only way to stop a dog from barking when
nobody is home is with a remote control device next
you've said if dogs in the house are fighting you should bring massive
structure into their lives other than structured walks together what would
this look like in the house well so you also have to bring punishment into the
lives so um but everything should be structured so right now these are not my
fighting dogs but right now I've got two of my dogs in place so you know when when I'm
hanging out they're hanging out they're in a kenneled at night they're kenneled when your not home
everything is based on permission-based you a lot of permission-based stuff no
free roaming no snottiness no nonsense no nothing like that
so you want to make sure that you're you're doing that that's a lot of it
next opinion on star mark style collars as a way to start weaning the dog off
prong I don't wean dogs off prong so um if it works for you though do it my goal
is not my goal is to leverage my goal is to leverage tools to help dog owners get
better results and have an easier life with their dog so but if it works for you
then do it next do you think dogs are more intelligent in any area more so
than humans um I think dogs have better noses than us and they probably can read
body language better than us next my dog listens only when I have the prong
collar or the e-collar on he has leash smart how can I fix um number one you I
don't know how long you been working with your dog I mean dogs do I mean a
lot of things we can eliminate really quick and we get trained really quick
but I mean strengthens clicker training which we do clicker training don't do
shameless plugs I don't use don't use my traction don't use my audience for for
your own you know your website unless you're Linda all right okay that's
really rude actually um so what you're gonna do is what you're gonna do is
how long been working with a dog number two how many repetitions have you done
clicker training takes four thousand repetitions for a doctor actually get it
have you reached punishment mode yet have you reached punishment mode means
has the dog have a consequence for non for not being able to do something so
what I want you to do is if the dog hasn't had a consequence for not doing a
known command the dog is going to be dogs is going to be selective and then
you know don't be in a rush to get it off the dogs do get collar smart
though so you want to make sure your word NO has some meaning to it next I
play with my dog in the house I can't get out good idea
you know if you've got a small breed dog and you wanna play fetch
that's fine I can't engine playing with a dog that's 35
pounds or more inside of a home I just can't imagine that I don't do that again
if you want to do that that's fine but you know who am I to say that for you that's
not the right thing but I don't I don't suggest that with any of my clients next
thank you Jeff and Linda how do you stop dog from only wanting toys bones etc
that the other dog has um what you can do is you can teach the place command
and teach impulse control so the place command is having the dog go to a dog
bed it could be a carpet square it could be a blanket and then give them give
whatever you want to the other dog and that dog doesn't have to have it you
know it's um it could be you know they have to learn how to mind its own
business it also says it causes the dog to not want to play okay next is it
wrong to have the dog sleep in the bed um no not at all all depends on if
you've got the dog with separation anxiety and aggression yes it is in high
levels of reactivity yes it is and we'd be careful about how we say it's
wrong what it does is it makes it worse and doesn't make it any better but if
your level of affection is always more than your level of structure leadership
and guidance you're always going to struggle no matter what the thing is but
if you're kicking butt with leadership structure and guidance then you can give
more get more affection but if you struggle with any aggression or any
separation anxiety the dog should not be in the bed with you next how can you train
more than two dogs on time well start with one at a time and then add another
one and then add another one and then another one and I'm not been snarky I
mean but that's how you would do it so then everybody sort of on board next my
dog gets excited and jumps up to lick me in the face but always I'm going to
click on this and it's gonna go haywire okay so if your dog comes up it goes up
and licks you in the face you don't want that I've got a video on YouTube on how
to stop jumping it's relatively simple to do it's a relatively simple thing to
do next okay what treats do you use to reward the treat doesn't matter I mean
we use we use the dog daily food we used it we used
we use the dogs daily food for for for for food for the reward and you can do
that if you want you something higher value you can but if you do true
food training use the dogs daily food next I have a year old GSD is it
too late to Train oh gosh no no if anybody tells you that then they're
they're wrong you know you can train a dog you you can you can train a
dog up until its last breath to do stuff
next how do I know if the level is not high enough when doing Ecollar healing well there's a couple of things you use if you don't how to get
your dogs working level and motivational level then when there's distractions the
levels have to go higher the dog will always tell you just watch the dog pay
attention to the dog so the dog is either confused or doesn't know or is blowing you off so but the way we do Ecollar healing is we
always pair it with a leash so we can guide the dog but if the dog keeps
blowing you off it might not be feeling the remote next dog pops into commands
fast as possible runs to place but has good duration slow him down or okay I'm
fine with that next brought home new puppy GSD two year old GSD is food
guarding and Toy guarding and how to correct um number one food guarding they
shouldn't be doing because it takes 30 seconds it takes 30 seconds to feed a
dog 30 seconds to a minute your average dog eats within about a minute maybe two
minutes tops and I'm not talking about fast eaters I'm just talking about dogs that
are just normal dogs that are hungry so I feed dogs twice a day and I feed them
in their crates and so there should be no guarding behavior if there is guarding
behavior then teach the out command but don't it sounds like you might have been
doing feeding in a central area or even free feeding your dog so I would
recommend not doing that so I recommend feeding in the crate twice a day put the
food down both dogs are separated you're done as far as toys are concerned you
know toy can teach the dog the out command which is release you know release things
out of their mouths but whenever you bring in the dog into the into the scene
you're always going to have possibly a little bit of
a little bit of friction on the other hand I don't want your dog stealing toys
from your other dog so you're gonna have to figure out a healthy
balance on that next what is your preference hi food or hi play drive the dog
will tell you but remember we're we are pet dog trainers there's a huge
difference you know what I mean I'm a pet dog trainer so I own a dog that does
sport work but that's not what I do that that's not what I do
so you know I don't want dogs to be drivey when I'm training them I'm
trained family pet dogs I want dogs to be I want dogs to be you
know you know relaxed so what you do what I do is we don't use toys for
training historically because you can't do enough repetitions of that command so
you can use food for training you can use verbal praise but the dogs we also
get are really nervous and stressed prior to coming in they don't take food
so your chances of them working up on the food drive is important next do you
have any Georgia training recommendation no I don't next can you use a collar
without layering with prong collar absolutely absolutely next my dog knows
not to bite us sometimes but she's playing she will nibble yeah how to stop
it dogs do that with you dog should know what no means you know what I mean
your your dog should know what the word no means and um there should be a
Punisher for that the dogs probably doing it when it's in Drive dogs that
are in Drive tend not have teaching them impulse control in Drive is a whole
nother world so honest mistake from your dog's part next i got two new puppies and i'm training them to go on a
pad they will wet on it but not poo okay so I don't number one having two
two puppies is gonna be a big huge challenge getting two adult dogs at the
same time is a big huge challenge so I don't do puppy pad training so I
actually don't know how to help you next I walk around Home Depot constantly
getting boring any suggestions where I can go for training um yeah what I would
do is what I would do is go to any public area but it's really cold when
you are like negative something and if that's if that's reason of questioning
is just find out who else is like is there Bass pro shop is there a Carbelas
you might have to just bundle up a lot put a coat on the dog and just bring it you
know bring the elements there also do um drills with your dog so you can do like
recall the sit recall to place you know do like a little triangle thing anything
you that teach your dog oder work doing trick training next trying the
prong collar my dog will not move when pressure is applied how do we overcome
um you know what okay um I block people because it's my show it's a dictatorship
so when anybody just for frame of reference when you plug your own blog or
your website it's very tacky it's very unprofessional and you get blocked that
you don't go onto other people's shows and you do that that's why you get
blocked we have rules here it's a dictatorship I've been doing this for 10
years all right I'm not the new guy on the block so that's why that's why and
by logging in by logging in underneath another person's name and then asking
why in all caps that's also there gonna be the answer all right so what was the
question I'm sorry it's okay got it your dog won't move so what I want you to do
is this imagine using imagine your dog is in the middle right here and imagine
you're trying to get your dog to move north what I want you to do is then I
want you to slowly go head south east and west then down a little bit you can
use a little bit of light come on let's go I do that I'll do that I'll do a
little bit of baby talk at the beginning to get the dog to finally get moving
that's what you can do it's it's I've seen it's not that it's not a prong
collar issue it's a collar issue I've seen dogs do that on martingales flat
buckle collars head halters and chest harnesses I've seen dogs do that on
every single training apparatus they just don't want to move so try that
little compass move on that and and and don't you know don't get mad next I
don't have a dog yet I'm here for the four one one awesome awesome awesome you're
smart next is it best to use food or a toy as motivation for training we
already have that's a double question and so that's a lot
can you give examples how dogs correct themselves yeah I mean dogs correct well
they can do a self correction which is they understand what they they caught
themselves in the middle of breaking a command they're like oh shoot I'm not
supposed to do that but dogs correct themselves all the time I mean if a dog
like runs into a tree and gets hurt and dog who knew that when they're playing
fetch they don't run into that brick anymore if a dog walks on a surface that
hurts their paws they will go around that surface
if a dog startles themself around a certain area they will avoid that area
and the dogs also can correct each other as well
next blue heeler barks non-stop we'll try the collar you recommended thank you get a bark
collar it'll work next yeah not too many dogs don't respond to a bark collar next
puppy jumps and grabs clothes of strangers how to stop that so so it's annoying and
it's dangerous you might rip some you're gonna rip the clothing or you may bite
a toddler so what you're gonna do is you're going to have the dog on a
training collar I'm a big advocate of tools a prong collar and a leash and you
set it up and we have a video on that on how to stop jumping you go to my youtube
channel and it describes it step-by-step and very detailed how to do it and what
you're doing is the way to stop jumping is this you make jumping suck that's how
you stop it you make it uncomfortable for the dog
there's a lot of unethical conversation out there about how to stop jumping like
turn your back that's sort of like the worst thing to do is turn your back on a
jumping dog ignore the dog you don't ignore jumping dogs they won't stop tell
the dog just sick you actually don't care if the dog sits or not you don't
want the dog to jump so a lot of people what they're doing is they'll train like
place they'll train um they'll train jump dog jumps and then they say sit and
then they reward it you just train a chain called jump sit okay next
what's the biggest error owners or trainers make with dogs
um there's there's there's tons of it there's tons of it probably not training
them so such an open-ended question I wouldn't know where to begin next what
is the best way to start leash training my one-year-old GSD um start start with
just go to I go to our YouTube channel and everything is
Solid K9 Training all of my social media platforms are Solid K9 Training so
go to our YouTube channel and go on a DIY do it yourself and start following
those and then just dive into our social media contents right next how do I get
puppy to get in the water and like it well we don't not gonna like it or not
so so you know what you can do is if you have to bathe the dog you just go and guess what you're taking a bath today and you pick up the dog and you put him
in the bathtub you can do that if you want to do if you want to take time
which a lot of us don't have time I'm not gonna take three weeks to get my
dog to get my dog to enjoy a bath it's like get in the bath right now so what
do you do you just put him in the bath next how can I get my seven month old
Labrador to eat slower well you can do a couple of things you can spread the food
out on the kind of sheet pan you can get you know those cupcake the cupcake pans
take food and put them in all the little cupcake things you can do that and then
they also make some slow feeder bowls how do i get a puppy to like showers and be calm yeah
that's the same thing I found a balance trainer where I live that holds weekly dogs social awesome
congratulation that's fantastic to hear um you guys are amazing thank you thank
you so much for the kind words it's appreciated all your advice thank
you thanks thank you for consuming um what are the best protocols inside the
home well to me I would say 90% of the time my dogs are inside the house
they're in place because my dogs are with me a lot so what I do is if I'm
like right now two my dogs are in place when I was doing my social media they
were in place when I'm reading a book they're in place when we're making
dinner actually they're outside like you know
enjoying their there I live an outside yard so pretty much hanging out doing
nothing that's what my dogs do now if I go to my training center we can do our
trick training there we can do agility equipment there we can do some drive training
stuff there I play chuck it with my dogs a couple of times day and then 8 months out of the year my dog was swimming three to four times
a day because we've got an inground pool here and then a pool at the training
center so but inside they doing a lot of nothing
so next dog won't take food when training
sometimes but I know that he has not eaten that day yeah training well dogs can go
30 days without food so just because they didn't eat
breakfast that doesn't mean they're gonna eat yes you have to keep training
if you want to do a true food training protocol you only feed through training
the dog can you can a dog can miss a days of a day of food a dog can miss two
days of food dogs can go a week without food remember you're not starving the
dog here's your food it's right here in my hand
eventually the dog will take it if you want to do food training that's how you
would do it next sometimes dog refuses to sit at threshold even when pulling up
on prong while pushing down on rear so I mean then if a dog if the dog um if the
dog knows a known command then there has to be a Punisher for non-compliance or
else you will have an unreliable dog so you shouldn't be at that point you don't
be doing pulling you would do a quick pop or a leash correction for that and
do drills do drills like you would walk walk you know walk five feet come to a
stop sit by feet stop next how would you train a dog to not be scared of grates
we've done that a lot we actually just like we literally just let's go when we
walk over the great you can do it with a clicker and food if you want to to me I
will just go we're walking over the grate today I've done it numerous times
it works every single time being in New England where we are up on the east side
of Providence we've got fire escapes we've got them the flat parts of the
deck of the fire escape which is all grating so walking up fire escape steps
a lot of dogs don't like that number one there's no kick plate and they can see
right through them so it freaks out a lot of dogs but it's a really great
skill to work if you live in any major city with subways the grates that are on
the sidewalks over the subways you can do that as well
then when can you want to be super careful is when it's if you're in Las
Vegas and August you don't want to have your dog walk over metal you know next Vancover, Canada, here I'm got an event in Kalona coming up go to
our RVDog trainer com RV dog trainer com I've got two seminars coming up in
Canada next when my dog barks in the house I say thank you go to his spa and
redirect okay well if you truly mean thank you
and if you don't mind one or two barking which I don't you know I don't that's
fine but your now that's not a redirection if you're I don't like to do
redirection so to me it sounds like you're just telling your dog hey thanks for
barking once or twice now knock it off and go to your spot that sounds that
sounds proper to me next how can you stop a non-stop hungry dog always
standing next to your plate well that's rude behavior on your dog's part that's
why you ask the question so you you you teach your dog the out
command which literally means like get out of here like literally like get out
of my space how do you do that with you do with a Punisher you bonk a dog which
is a towel bottom line that you use a remote power you can have your door be
pro to be proactive and have your dogs go to place so right now like the dogs
can't be bothering us so that's one of the more easier things to do a dog
understands it stopping a dog from doing something it's pretty simple to do now
if you want to give them something else to do that's where it takes a little bit
more time like place or down or things like that
so that's what that's what I would do but it's dangerous a dog can you know
dog can nip you a dog can eat food that is poisonous to them so it's not a good
idea of your dog around the kitchen table plus they get fat so next do you
think holding small dogs like babies when they're pups causes problems later
um well when you say pup we're talking under 16 weeks old I that's one of the
things you do actually when you pick out a puppy and breeders should be doing
prior to the eight week old and they start down at two to three days two to
three days old actually will hold them upside down they'll do a lot of
different sensory stuff on hot and cold surfaces and surfaces that move on
uneven objects they'll hold them up in the air so you know it's if you're doing
it if you're actually doing it to baby the dog it's probably not the best
mindset to have for dog rearing but if you're doing it to to build confidence
in the dog eventually yes it's a good idea but and if it's a chihuahua
freaking carried running the damn handbag for all I care but I just better
not bark too much and bite next do you do any less than a three
week board and train for non-aggressive dog we don't we do a
we do one-on-one we do one-on-one sessions we can do that I mean then if
you've already gone through our program and say you're traveling for a little
bit we'll do like yeah we'll do we'll do it but right off that right off the bat
most dogs need at least three weeks at least three weeks some dogs we've got
dogs that like they're just it takes them a week just to get acclimated
sometimes just get acclimated we've got other dogs that you know that
when you stop some of the bad behaviors you get a lot of new nonsense that comes
out so we see that a lot next best way to stop separation anxiety at work and
home well I've got a I've got a video that's it's if you do it a hundred
percent it's very very accurate on how it works
so go to my youtube channel on separation anxiety and you watch that
video so start by watching that video and then and then and then work and then
work backwards and then work backwards from that so do everything that the
video says and then come on and see what we're doing next just go outside
Kyra so yeah if you have 70 pound you have a 70 pound dog in the prong collar keeps
popping off I would go to a three millimeter the two two five is too small
so go to a three millimeter next when using no then correction can I
eventually just use no once behavior has stopped as a warning no come up with
another word so your word no and we all make the mistake it's no big deal I've
done it I do it as well but when you use the word no you want to destroy it so
whenever you say the word no there should be a it consequence following it
so if you want to just do a warning just change it to like eh eh or you know anything elso next the femur bones are fine just don't
cook them just don't cook them no cook bones raw bones next can dog be taught to
respect meek new kennel worker that hasn't controlled dogs if you if you
have a meek new kennel worker you probably want to think about fighting a new
kennel work and that's not you know I'm not trying
to be mean here but if you've got challenging dogs and you have a you have
a weak energy so that necessarily meek but the weak energy someone's gonna get bit
or you're gonna have a dog fight you're gonna have a dog fight you
can have somebody that's quiet like our staff is quiet when they work dogs
and the kennels there's no yelling there's no screaming there's no you know
dominance posturing but it's more about energy so if somebody is it has got soft
energy they're gonna get in trouble you're gonna have a dog fight they're
gonna get bit so they need to handle lots and lots of dogs just be super
super careful super careful next hi great to see you guys again
also you look marvelous but you always look fantastic welcome back oh wow thank you
yeah we had a wonderful dinner last night she looked just fantastic new kennel
worker equals my dog gets kicked out of that day care she attended five weeks
for four months yeah correct for whining on place think I'm nagging her
maybe she won't relax yet yeah I mean some dogs are like right now if you've
been following us on social media forever but if you just started tuning
in on social media right now we've got a lot of nervous fearful dogs right now
we've got a bunch of dogs that are just so so high-strung and are really
struggling with they came to us struggling with a lot of anxiety a lot
of nervousness a lot of fear so we struggle too you know we struggle too
there's some really deep seeded behaviors and a lot of these dogs that a
lot of these dogs you know have but you might be underwhelming her so you might
be underwhelming the dog by just nagging with just small Corrections instead of
one good way I mean it just says you know what just cut it out like we're all
tired of whining because remember whining is also the dogs mental cycling
of its mind too next okay any suggestions on the best tech techniques for brushing
my dog brushing your dog's teeth you don't really have to brush your dog's teeth if you do
that I think with a femur bone just do femur bones just do femur bones there
yourself doing that I also feed my dogs raw chicken quarters so next when I tap
doesn't know something about hearts you start giving hearts just tap your screen
I could be you I don't know maybe reboot maybe log off log back on if you can tap
your screen if you cant give hearts people if you want to know how to give
hearts you actually just tap your screen and if you want super hearts you got to
buy the super hearts from the app store intense staring at cats and squirrels
and heels high Corrections work for a moment go higher if it only works
for a moment in the dog keeps going back to it you got to go higher yeah don't
worry about what number it is pay attention to the dog what do you think about malinois yeah I think they are great dogs but they shouldn't be family pets for most people I think
right now the shelter's are getting filled up with Malin wise I think I
think if you're a if you're a highly active owner a Malinois could be a great
dog if you're obviously historically Malinois go to sport dog people
which includes personal protection tracking order work and things like that
you want to do a ton of trick training things like that if you want to high
level obedience competition even if you wanna compete the dog at
higher-level obedience you know flash air stop they're great
dogs but for your average family pet a mal is going to be just it's gonna be a
challenge for you it's gonna be a challenge for you I've only met two low key
mals and when I mean low key they were like still like drivey but they were
not quite as drivey as your average mal um if a small dog lunges a child a
one-year-old child but doesn't bite them what should be done um well it's gonna
if it's in the same family what you need to do is I'm going to be doing a
baby proofing video at some point soon actually probably the next 30 days I'm
professionally you know filmed one I've got a couple of videos coming out there
and be professionally done what you want to do is
number one the dog should know the place commanded the baby the baby should know
the the no command and I'm a big advocate of dogs existing around
existing around children but not necessarily interacting with children so
existing is good but interacting is not good it's a lot of dogs don't like the
pressure of a young child or something or anybody coming towards them then they
know they can't get away so whether they do as they snap snapping is usually a
warning it's not as bad as a bite so you know obviously that's got to be stopped
but more advocate for the dog think about the dog next not trying to be
funny poodle likes young blonds is that
possible um if you like young blonds and when we're talking young we're not
talking about 18 and under I think it would be great for you is if you're
single and that's your that's you what you like you know I you know I don't I
don't know I don't know maybe that I don't know I you know I know you're not
trying to be funny but I don't have a good answer for that next my dog squirts
all the time when he's scared happy excited all the time what do I do
that's hard you know I'd rather work with a biting dog than an excited peeing
dog when you first of all check for UTI which it probably isn't it's probably
it's probably excitement it's probably an excitement thing so what you have to
do an excitement right now no excitement literally very very minimal words with a
dog everything is monotonous everything is slow everything is bland as soon as
you get home you know take the dog out to go to the potty no high-pitched
voices no all excited stuff get yourself into a new routine of calmness with the
dog you can still take the dog for walks and still clean Chuck it play
frisbee you can still take the dog running don't get me wrong but I want you know
if a dog you know has excited pee outside it's not so bad inside it's
gonna destroy your home next my neighbor's dog barks all the time I want
to throw a brick at it so bad what's my option so please don't do that so please
don't do do that if your neighbor is not home you could always say hey I don't
know if you but your dogs barking all day they maybe
didn't know about it have you heard about bark collars in my neighborhood
you don't say stuff to neighbors you just keep your mouth shut you don't like
tell neighbors what to do you can always call animal control most most cities
have nuisance ordinances if a dog barks I think for more than 10 minutes or
something like that but you know try to try to you know try to your truck and do
it by the way the big ego yeah I am that's me
Jeff Gellman Solid K9 Training it's yeah it's yeah it's most dog
trainers do have big egos yeah there you go next okay this next message just says
I'm here for Jeff hey Linda tell Jeff we're looking forward to
meeting him in Kelowna oh cool I'll see you on see you just told them
awesome I'll see you in Kelowna I'm looking forward to it I've never been
I've never been I've never been there so I'm looking forward to it next what do
you think of dachshunds um I think doc I mean I mean I don't
just like any breed of dog dachshunds you gotta watch out for number one um
please don't have them over weight and you got to watch out for their spines
but I mean you have to watch out for their spines that's the thing that's
the thing so jumping off of things can injure them a lot so next dog barks at
cars all the time when they drive around the neighborhood how to train to bark
less um what then you have to go so so what you're gonna do is if your dog is
in the house you get a barks collar if you're all done walks you would correct
your dog while you're walking your dog but if you're if you're you know you
have you've got to do some sort of punishment device which is going to be a
bark collar you can use a remote collar and Punisher the only way to stop it and
watch the behavior is to do is to do punishments so punishment does not abuse
punishment lasts for one or two seconds usually a bark collar lasts for a tenth of
a second which is boom quick I'm it's uncomfortable the dog goes Oh barking
comfortable barking uncomfortable I get it
stop doing it you know next where will your professional video be put up I'll
post something up on Facebook in a separate website for it there'll be a
link on my website um it'll be seven days to sanity is one of my videos that
I'll be producing it's called seven days to sanity how to turn your dog around in
a week that doesn't mean dogs would be off leash train that does me you dog will be fully train but it's literally how to get your sanity back in a week
next I have a pit Boxer mix great family dog not good with very young kids that's
it okay going to begin fostering and training dogs for local shelter any
extra advice I mean you know so you're hopefully you're only doing it for
experience unless they because as soon as that dog goes back to the
shelter all the training goes away so if you're if you're do if you want to do
it's a great idea for you to get experience handling numerous dogs
with numerous problems it's also good for you to have a dog that then maybe
can go from you to a home and you can train the owners but if the dogs going back
for the shelter in a way that the dogs not going to change the dog the dog will
regress almost immediately because there's no consistency in shelters next
what do you know about Louisiana Catahoula Leopard dog a lot of the dogs
that come from down south what they need is they need a lot of those always like
a working breed dog so it's a working breed dog a lot of those dogs are used
to being outside a lot so but we train those dogs up we like to give them a
task give them a job it could be anything from just like playing Chunk it
or fetch or frisbee or doing some tasks a lot of these dogs that are southern breed dogs and we're seeing a lot of them come up into New England
into living in cities we've seen them struggle a lot or see them struggle a
lot we've seen a lot of your nervousness anxiety reactivity but if you've got a
good dog it's probably might not be a good first time dog tehn it might not be good
for a first time dog next your answer was very helpful awesome um female Frenchie almost a year plays too rough okay so um if you want if you want to slow it down again a dressage whip is
great for that remote collar is great for that as well I'm not a big advocate of
dogs playing with unknown dogs so I've talked about that a lot I'm a big
advocate of socialization socialization is like a cocktail party it's not a big
mosh pit it's not a big mosh pit so if you want to stop rough play there has to be
a Punisher which can be a little bit of a SWAT to the but we show that we show
our work all the time at socialization as well as you could have a remote collar
correction next how long do you do the pressure on pressure off protocol when
layering the remote with the prong um usually just one or two days tops and then we go right to you
know whatever our next step which would be you know a leash pop or remote collar
next my dog is a mix of Aussie Shepherd and dalmation yeah okay he has separation
anxiety how to help with this so you know I've got a video in youtube so
watch my video on youtube start with that and then do everything I say in
that video and then come back to the show and ask the question because that's
a really good start that's a really good start
so people fix separation anxiety by watching our free videos they do it all
the time next how do you feel about Australian
Shepherds I like guys don't ask me about breeds like because I feel fine about
them I feel fine about them I don't know quite how to answer a question like that
to be honest with you I'm it's like they're fine I mean they can
be great dogs or they can be not great dogs you know I guess on some I'll give
you more like a Malinois I'm pretty outspoken about Bulldogs if you live in
Las Vegas like why do you have a bulldog um if you have one don't be offended but it's
like they can't breathe it's they don't like hot climates you know next I have a
golden retriever Chesapeake Bay Retriever cross what do you feel about
force fetch so I don't train for a forced fetch I have no
problem with force fetch at all and I know how it's trained if you don't know
how much train does go to a video a forced fetch that you know the remote collar do
with an ear pinching with a toe pinch I have no problem with I have no problem
forced fetch at all you can do with a clicker and food there's a lot of ways
there's a lot of ways to train forced fetch if people don't know what that means
it's just it's popular in the sport world as far as like hunting dogs what
you're doing is you're training the dog to actually go pick something up bring
it back and not let go of it so next if there's anything that's breed
specific then just don't answer that is
there a right age to start letting people interact with your do so what I do is
the bigger question is when do you stop which is what I do so up until six
months of age what I will do is I will go to places where actually want people
to interact with my dog living in Providence which is a multicultural city
and its really really great having having a lot of universities by us it's
really really great so I'll actually have a dog and I'll be like hey can you
come and pet my dog and you come and pet my dog can you come and pet my dog I'll have rules for it like don't put your face in the dog's face I don't do
something like that I want my dog stay into a sit
I'll tell the people if my dog breaks sit I'm gonna put my dog back into a sit
you sort of think the fun out of it with people but that you know that's what
I'll do but once my dogs are socialized with humans I'll do another check-in at
about a year a lot of times a year dogs change a lot we see a lot of dogs
are changing between a year in 15 months so you might want to do a check-in back
then to make sure your dog all of a sudden didn't like all the sudden it's
like ooh strangers I go after you so some people will go up into 15 months
but I want dogs do excuse me eventually ignore people that's my goal I'm always
terrified of socializing a small breed puppy with other dogs well you probably
should I'd be terrified to I'dbe terrified to so what I would do is you
know you can find other smaller breed if you go up under like meet up me up dot com
or go to a doggie daycare maybe it's got
small small groups you can you can find that so so Hiram
I'll give you your 30 seconds here I'm not I'm not like blocking people with
real questions I'm blocking trolls you'll never see me block a person that has a
real question you'll never see me block a person with a real question so what you
just called me a fag so next time you pop up I'm gonna block you so like if
you if you listen to this content you'll see that I'm really really helpful but I
just don't stand for nonsense I've also been doing this for a really long time
so you asked about a Catahoula Leopard dog you think they're good for home use
well I didn't maybe get to your question yet but you called me a fag so you're
never gonna know like you'll never know I'm giving you guys like I'm giving you
free information like free like it's not bad for free stuff right come on now if
you don't like it it's 300 bucks an hour you can Skype with me and I'll let you
call it you can sit there and call me a fag for an hour so I got this be like
yeah sure it's like I got my $300 next anyway only experience as of now
plan to make videos so someone may adopt directly from my home awesome that's a
great idea that's about going to the shelters great idea thank you kudos keep
doing it next time trainer suggested putting two dogs that don't get along
and create side by side sounds crazy help well it does sound crazy but
there's probably hopefully there's more to it than that
hopefully there's more to it than that what I would do is I would actually
probably have a little bit of space between the two because I don't want any
crate nonsense so there's gonna be two dogs that don't get together there's
always gonna be a little bit more than that but you know eventually
yeah maybe it'd be fine it they were next to each other we have dogs that don't get along next to each other though but we're trainers so I mean we've got a little
more of a skill set but for your average home use let's put a little bit of space
in between I'm getting a couple of questions about nail cutting and
grooming I don't know a lot about that so as far as like nail cutting and
grooming you know what what what I would do is I'd go on to youtube google it
there's some people out there that have got incredible videos like really
really good videos on you know nail cutting and grooming and even dogs don't
like they don't like it they don't like it they're aggressive they like it's
hard to do that yeah when they scream so you know that's that's that's what I
would do I'm just not the nutrition guy
I'm not the medical guy I'm not the grooming guy so you know I'm the guy
with a big ego right next huge how long is too long for walking a dog and
working on heel yeah I mean you know chances are you're not doing it too long
I mean if you took a four week I mean four month old dog and you walked
it ten miles you're probably over walking the dog you
know I I think you know your average person walks for about thirty minutes to
an hour so you're doing anywhere from you know a mile to probably three miles
which is which is probably not too much for your average dog in the hot weather
you've got to really watch out for like you know your smushy face dogs but
I don't think most people are walking their dog too much so I probably
wouldn't worry about it next GSD it's very reactive when someone comes to the
door and is very strong to handle with prong and E Collar so you've got to arousal
issue so you have an arousal issue the first thing you want
to do is you know eliminate the arousal you want to eliminate the arousal how do
you do that so if you can't if it's not working with a remote collar prong collar
the first way before you can actually have a conversation with your dog is you
have to eliminate the arousal so I would use a bunker bonkers are wrapped up towel and looking for one I thought I had one it's a wrapped up towel and what you
do is you'll say no and you throw the towel yes I'm telling you to throw a
towel at your large dog if you snap your dog out of that then you can start
teaching your dog something but when a dog is barking and lunging and jumping
at the door don't tell your dog what to do
other than no other than no also you might be underwhelming your dog with your tools
remember the tools only work if what's behind it has got value so a lot of
people I find underwhelmed their dog the underwhelming dog next do you really
feel the dogs pick up on our anxiety yeah they pick up on our energy
absolutely they pick up a lot of facial expressions and our body language and a
dog knows when somebody has cancer a dog knows when a gram of heroin is in three
pounds of coffee beans a dog knows when someone's about to have a diabetic
seizure I got a good feeling that I got a good feeling that dog knows when you're nervous
next how far do you let puppies fight I don't want them to fight at all but play
rough you know I I got no problem with rough play at all as long as you get
them to stop it you know immediately so if you're going to let dogs play rough you
better be able to get dogs to be calm next my dog ends up on my pillow at
night and growls when I ask him to move so your dog should be in a crate crate
your dog at night you're gonna get bit you're gonna get bit so please let's
stop that today all right so crate your dog at night
don't allow you dog up on the bed that's a great example someone said you
know he's okay to sleep with your dog for you it's not okay for you to sleep
with your dog so no dog should be growling at a human especially in the
bed it's like no way that's how we get that's how we get face bites that's how
we get bites so you know we get a lot of you know you know we're gonna feature
next best training exercise to turn off excitement probably to just get a rid
for it to get rid of arousal is gonna be what you're gonna want to do so to
eliminate arousal what you're gonna do is you're going to
use a bonker or a Punisher to eliminate arousal remember a lot of times people
say oh you're getting rid of the drive of the dog you're getting rid of the
drive of the dog it's like you're not getting rid of the drive so there's a
difference between arousal and high drive I own two very high drive dogs but
when they're in my house I don't want them all ramped up I want them to I want
them to be calm yeah we just saw we were featured yeah
periscope just threw threw me a bone on that one so so welcome to all the new
people here we've been on that we've been on for about an hour already so
you're missing a lot of the show we're on the tail end of the show if you're
just tuning in my name is Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 canine training and I'm a dog
trainer business owner and in Providence Rhode Island it was specialized in the
aggression rehab and behavior modification and then I travel the world doing dog
training seminars and you can go to RV dog trainer dot come RV dog trainer dot com
then all my links are up and right up in my bio
so welcome to all that wonderful new new people that are here and we're winding
the show down so you might we might not get your questions so I apologize but I
am on every week next female humping one of one particular person and anxiety
should he leave do you mean no the human shouldn't leave it all the human shouldn't
leave it all I think I think the dog needs to learn how to not hump and I
answered that question I'll answer that question earlier on how
to stop dogs from humping and it's got to be through a correction but um you
know definitely don't have that person leave next one year old you're golden doodle is mouthy
always try to get attention using mouth and teeth yeah a lot of dogs do
that so that's not acceptable that's not acceptable also they can do a couple of
things number one the dog needs to learn that using its mouth unacceptably is not acceptable so believe it or not if a dog puts its
mouth on me and if you're not if you're brand new I talk about punishment a lot
punishment is not abuse the only way to stop an unwanted behavior is through a Punisher it's a one to two second moment of discomfort for the
dog so you would use a bonker a bonker is a wrapped up towel you would say the
word no it's really important when ever your about to deliver a Punisher to a
dog you always say the word no first and then you deliver the Punisher never
say no at the exact same time you're doing the punishment it's got to be no
and then there's a little bit of a latency period of one second or two
seconds and deliver the Punisher and it's the same
with yes as well it makes both yes and no way more effective it's that
anticipation that yes a reward is coming or oh shit and Punisher is coming
because I did the wrong thing it really helps the dogs process the information
that you're teaching them much much better much much quicker next five month
old puppy scared of everything so all of a sudden how to help due to age you know we get a
lot of nervous dogs we get a lot of nervous dogs they could be a lot of
things it could be lack of socialization lack of exposure it could be it could be
genetics usually it's lack of socialization or lack of exposure to
environmental what our environmental just name it literally a leaf blowing
plastic bags moving we deal with dogs that are afraid of literally a
leaf blowing by plastic bags so what you're going to do is what I would do is
do you want to do all interior work first interior work so what you're going
to do is you want to everything inside and I would do all clicker food
protocols do you do all clicker food protocols and all your basic commands
and a lot of your confidence-building skills a lot of your
confidence building skills that's what you're going to do next how
long should I train heal and recall by dialing up before going to correction
mode so on recall if your dog in order for your dog to understand recall I
still talk a lot about shock collars still talk a lot about them every day
every day I'm probably one of the the only people out there that talk about
them on a daily basis and wonderful they are so so as far as on recall
training you don't want to go to a punishment level on recall until the dog
understands recall so what you want to do is go and do a lot of reps on recall
you want to do a short distances long distances you want to do them on a long
line and then eventually though you have to proof it because what happens when
your dog sees a squirel of a dog a deer you know any anything so what you're
going to do is so what you're going to do is you eventually get the point
when you've got to go to a punishment level on the remote collar for non for
not coming back to you but make sure it's on a leash so it understands that you don't
want to drive you away from me I want you to come back to me next I have a
two-year-old tricolor collie love her she's great I have a question ask your
question sometimes my dog is reacted to people
who carry objects can you explain his thinking thanks one more time
sometimes all reacting people it's probably just startles the dog so what I
would do is this what I would do is I would do a clicker protocol clicker food
protocol and I would set it up so you better get a bunch of your buddies
together or you can just get a bunch of buddies together at first have them
carry a bunch of objects make sure your dog understands what a clicker is
so we go to our FAQ section on our website which is SolidK9Training.com and you learn how to make sure you
properly get your dog to understand what a clicker is then what you're going
to do is you start out with different someone carrying objects and if the dog is
not reactive you will click and reward click and reward click and reward and
you keep doing that if the dog is reactive you have to have a Punisher
there has to be a Punisher so if there's no Punisher then the dog will just lack
of a reward is not a good enough thing to stop it an unwanted behavior
you just can't do that so then the dog goes I get it
so if I'm reactive it' sucked for a second if I'm non-reactive ooh good things
happen then what you would do is go on you go outside into the real world and
then you'll do the exact same things next what's the biggest reason why two
dogs don't get along probably because nobody told them not to what adjustments to training would you
recommend for stubborn dogs um just stubborn stubborn dogs you gotta
find a motivator you gotta find a motivator dogs always have a motivator
so food is a powerful motivator so stubborn dog also means lack of
communication you might be overwhelming the dog with information so what I would
what I would do is I would use the dog food drive that's what I would do I
would tap into the dog food drive if I had a stubborn dog which pretty much
means you're working for all your food you're working for all your food next
would my two-year-old collie make a search-and-rescue dog oh I have no idea
you know I I wouldn't I wouldn't know I would know I don't teach
search-and-rescue dogs so I don't know what would make a good search-and-rescue
dog so I would I would I would look for
Internet information online and trying to find a local search and rescue Club
you know close to you next um I have a Yorkie what's the best way
to socialize her with people she gets very excited around people well well so she
sounds like she's pretty socialized already cuz she's so excited so again
you know what I would do is it's easy for dogs to be excited around people
it's harder for them to be calm around people so what you're going to do is you
need to start getting your dog you need be calm you need to know how to eliminate
your dog's arousal so a lot of times people think oh my dog is happy to see
everybody but but imagine if that Yorkie was a Rottweiler you know so you wouldn't
want that which is why you're asking the question so we want your dog to learn
how to exist around humans so let's get you to exist around humans and the way
you would do that it start teaching it on the proper heel next to you if the
dog gets excited the dog gets excited then what you're going to do is you're
going to correct that so you can use a prong collar even on a little Yorkie you
can and you teach the dog how to do a proper heel you can use a remote
collar on a little Yorkie the last thing you want to news probably is clicker and
food at the beginning because it'll get too aroused it'll be too aroused um be
careful about using high-pitched voices as well you know next will a dog pee in
the house out of spite you know that's a really good question and I think dogs
pee because they're nervous I think they pee because they're fearful
I think they pee because they are not housebroken so that's about all I can give you on
that next I'm thinking of having my dog trained my dog is really aggressive
towards other dogs so that's that's a problem we specialize in aggression rehab so until you like that's not it that's not unfortunately that's not a
periscope question that's our specialty so until you find somebody that can help
you with that keep your dog away from other dogs keep your muzzled and that doesn't answer the question so what you can do
is gotta keep your dog from jacking off
close the door when you do it then dog's mirror their owners dog's mirror their
owners so close the freakin door alright so what you're going to do what you're
going to do is with aggression is keep your dog away from other dogs right now
and start with basic obedience teach your dog what yes and no means that's you
need to do a Skype do and you do a Skype next my dog play bites and hard
so we're again so we're gonna do what you have to do a Punisher I need to
remember anytime you want to stop an unwanted behavior there has to be a punisher it's really way to do it a lot of times people will say you don't have
to do it it makes it worse no it doesn't we've done it with thousands of dogs so
anytime we want a dog to do something we reward it anytime we want a dog to
stop doing something we would punish it school of mystery I know they took away
Gold they took away gold I think what happened was I was just on it
I was just on an RV trip for two months I didn't do as many periscopes so I
didn't meet the qualifications I don't know next I don't know school of mystery
that's a really good question it doesn't really matter it doesn't matter you know
what I mean to me I don't really care about how many followers I have I don't
know yeah exactly my content sucks is why that's what it really boils down to
is my content sucks that's right getting some good questions tonight
missed watching these liking WWJD okay thanks I don't think it being rude
I got 112 questions to go here okay so be patient it's free it's free
content okay and I got five thousand videos that you can watch and then ten
thousand hours of free audio contents and I've got a ton of stuff if I see
multiple questions that look almost exactly the same I'm not answering every
single time go back we've been on this for an hour I do this every week for
free come on come on I'm not being rude I'm not being rude at all how many other
shows out there seriously how many other shows
out there are there that you actually can get real advice to your dog training question come on for free give me a break
I'm doing I'm doing the best I can I'm doing the best I can guys okay next dog's on couches that train times yes or no yeah what you can do is what you can do is
what you can do is this is with permission yes with permission yes so
put a little blanket down call your dog up absolutely but if your dog has any
aggression issues I don't suggest it anxiety issues I don't suggest it and if
there's kids in the house be really careful because the kid's head is where
the the couch is usually if there's a small toddler next how do you get dogs
to stop jumping up on you I've got a video on YouTube that works go to my
youtube channel just in my channel which is Solid K9 Training just in the
search box how to stop jumping next will you be on Monday or Tuesday again um we
we try to do it on Monday we try to get a Monday next is using a water squirter
a good punishment I'm not a big fan of it if it works for you keep doing it I'm
just not a big fan of it I'm just not a big fan of it just because to me it's
like to me I don't mind that a dog see's that I'm punishing them but for me I
just don't want to have to grab a squirt bottle and squirt it all so you can't
punish your dog from 10 yards away from even 5 yards away you can't punish your
dog from a quarter mile away you can't punish a dog in another room you can't
punish a dog you know through you know anything like that with a water bottle how can I stop my dog from licking her feet I would check for I would check the dog's
diet first see if the dog has any allergies that's the one I would go next
what is your training or education and behavior and training usually people ask
me that question because they want to bash me so what you can do is you can go
to my website Solid K9 Training I have zero formal degrees in dog training
because they're worthless they're worthless
there is no certification out there that has got worth anything so you know I've
met many people with very high degrees in dog training they can't even
train the dog basic command so usually people ask me that question because they
want to like say something rude to me or be mean to me
so if you want to know more about me you can go to my social media channels but I
don't need to take it take a test at all so why do I think people want to bash me
because probably because I've got a big mouth and I say it like it is well then
I have none I observe degrees I'm 0 degrees other than I've been doing this
for 12 years and I've trained thousands and thousands and thousands of dogs and
I've documented my work and I'm the guy that's on the show right now so that's
that you know that's it but usually that's what people do know you know next
you used to talk a lot about shock collars but now bonkers is one better than the other they both have different
purposes and they both can be the same effective or not or not as effective
next my dog slept through most of this I better let them watch the replay when
they wake up definitely definitely I think you said your son has petting
time does that mean you don't believe in petting a dog a lot no I just I just
think that people over pet their dogs I'm just like I I am a big we have to be
super careful about children and dogs and children and dogs we have to understand
what pressure means you know we have we have you know pressure so the pressure
is is a child walking up to a dog a child walking up to a dog and a lot of
dogs don't like that but I'm not against petting dogs at all I'm against
strangers petting your dog I'm against strangers petting your dog but I'm not
against family members petting dogs but you just have to go and shoot it's 9:35
already I'm not against the strangers petting I mean I'm against strangers
petting dogs I'm not I'm not against family members petting dogs but you have
to also respect the dog respect the dog we deal with biting dogs all day
long all day long we deal with biting dog so so any like we've been on for
over an hour it's time for us to go if you miss this you can go back to the
replay soon as I log off what you can do is is yeah great you're an animal behaviorist
all right so anyway so you know we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna
we're gonna go right now we've been on for over an hour it's only supposed to be a
one hour show so we went a little bit longer because we had a lot of new
people right Jeff Gellman of Solid K9 training you can go to our website Solid K9 Training dot com we have an awesome facility in Providence
Providence Rhode Island and we've got thousands of videos there's over 5,000
videos that we've got really really great stuff and take care and thanks for
