Dog Bite Prevention

As a dog trainer, I often work with dogs who have bitten people, yet I am  able to hand feed and often begin body handling them without getting bitten myself.  Since dog bite prevention is a critical focus of my reward-based dog training, I will share some simple techniques to reduce your chances of being bit by a dog. Learn to read dog body language: If the dog is facing you, look for signs he is calm and relaxed. These would include a loose body (free of tension), open mouth, relaxed ears, soft blinking eyes, relaxed neutral tail and ears. These are...

Don’t touch me!

To avoid being bitten, always ask a dog to come into your space before you reach your hand out. This way you will know if the dog is interested in engaging with you. If he looks or turns his head away, or growls, he is telling you no thanks.

Training the Territorial Dog

Territorial dogs need a good pack leader, who will use management and dog training to help their dog be less reactive.

As President of Canine Behavior Counseling I am dedicated to helping dog owners with new puppies or those with problem dogs. Dogs that are overly aroused, anxious, fearful, dog aggressive, human directed aggressive, dominant, or simply undisciplined are those that I can help using a Positive Approach. My training programs encompass group classes, and personalized one-to-one counseling. I seek to achieve a balanced state of mind and a healthy relationship between the dog and its owners. It is important for dog owners to understand their dogs emotional needs as behaviors are a response to how the dog feels. By providing the proper information and training, the relationship between dog and owner will be a happy and balanced one.
