|THE DOG YOU
| All of us dog lovers want the same thing in a dog. Which is a dog that is a
friend to us and is willing to obey us, and has habits that are good. And those of us
who want gun dogs , that hunt and retrieve, want good athletic ability, toughness to
the hunting conditions, and a high level of spirit and drive, and a dog that also is
cooperative to what we want him to do with his hunting drive.
There is a classic dilemma in dogs with high spirited hunting drive. It is the
dilemma of "to obedience train or not"?
The dogs hunting drive is constantly causing the dog to resist doing behavior
of obedience. This is simply because the nature of the high spirited dog is
motivating the dog to do instinctive behavior. And training is something the dog is
not wanting to do, because it interferes with what nature is telling the dog to do.
The dogs genes tell him to be active and chase, run, fetch, point, etc..And training
is commonly wanting the dog to "sit", "heel", "whoa", "come", etc...
With standard training methods the dog is forced, punished, and manipulated
into being obedient, and doing behavior against his instincts. And this has the
tendency to cause the dog to become less spirited and less instinctive. In other
words training takes the hunting drive out of the dog.
| Hi-Tech Dog Training works with the nature of the dog to go with the
dogs instinct, and hunting spirit, to create obedience behavior associated
so closely with instinctive behavior, that obedience becomes something the
dog wants to perform.
The Remote Trainer is not used to force or punish a dog into
obedience. This would cause the dog to develop the attitude that obedience
is not fun, or desired.
The Remote Trainer is used to present mild discomfort as part of the
game of the dog working to attain "play", or "instinctive behavior", as
"reward". I call this "play training". And to use the Remote Trainer this way I
can use discomfort as something the dog can be motivated by, and feel
good about being motivated. The Play Training can give the dog an attitude
of associating being pushed by mild discomfort, as a beatable challenge.
If the dog is showing signs of being stressed by my pushing, the dogs
play drive will be showing to be lower. And this is my cue to back off the
push and give the dog more feelings of victory over challenge, by using
more play training for a while. Soon the dog is feeling great with training
again and I can go slower with the push training and the dog learns to avoid
It has been my experience that dogs will learn through avoidance
training and play training to develop an attitude of feeling that obedience is
fun. And the dog is very willing to obey commands because there is a good
feeling about obeying commands. This good feeling is a result of ,what is
known by science, "The Safety Reaction". The safety reaction is a natural
reaction of any animal learning through avoidance training and feeling
"victory over challenge". It is the same feeling we humans feel when we beat
a challenge, or, win a race, climb a mountain, win a sporting event, or win at
any game. We are sometimes in danger in some of our challenges we set
out to conquer . The danger is what makes the challenge more rewarding
when we beat the challenge.
| THE DOG OF YOUR DREAMS
1;A dog that is with a loving nature toward all people and is mannerly
around all people and other dogs.
2;The dog is obedient to your commands. And obeys in a wiling and
happy manner. And the dog shows to be very spunky, spirited, happy, and a
3;The dog is very intelligent and is able to learn new behavior and new
strategy in hunting and in everyday life with you.
4;The good attitude , trained by Hi-Tech , is an attitude that only gets
better and is a fairly permanent attitude.
5;The use of the remote trainer, by you, is only very minimal. It is only to
insure you the dog is carrying his avoidance training into your own
situations you and dog will be in. And, your use of remote trainer is going to
be a non stressful experience. Because you are not using it to create fear
and forcefulness. This makes your use of it almost like you are not even
really needing it. And, in many dogs it may be that you do not need to use it.
6;You do not need to learn all about dog training and handling to be
enabled to handle your dog. In many cases the dog is going to help you
become a better handler. The dog knows what to do and will help you.
7;If at some point ,in your dogs life, the dog would develop a behavior or
training problem , the fact the dog was trained by Hi-Tech Training, will
greatly help the dog to overcome the problem. Of course the dog may need
to have some retraining or behavioral modification. However, the problem
can be dealt with in a short time period. Dogs who develop problems, and
are trained with standard methods may be incurable of the problem.
Hi-Tech is giving the dog an inner strength to overcome problems that may
show up later in life.
8;The dog trained with Hi-Tech is a much more stress resistant dog. This
means the dog is healthier, more vigorous , and lives a better life.
| I do not want to lead anyone to believe Hi-Tech Dog Training is
magical , easy, or able to create training that is impractical or impossible. It
is only a much better way to train than the standard methods of force and
However, when the training is complete, with a dog that is trainable,
the rewards are to the owner of the dog. The dogs owner can have a dog
that is all you ever wanted out of a dog. And I suppose the greatest reward
to a dog owner, after training, is the ease of handling the dog , and the
ease of transferring training from trainer to owner.
Imagine a dog that heels willingly for you, releases to go hunt or
retrieve, or stays on command, and stays willingly, or goes to a place mat
to stay, or obeys all commands in a willing way.
A pointing dog will hunt in a range acceptable to you. And will hunt
more thoroughly with a better nose than would be without Hi-Tech. Will hold
point willingly. Back willingly. Retrieve willingly. Come to you willingly. And is
a hunting team with you. The dog is willing and this creates better hunts for
dog and yourself.
A Retriever will stay still in a duck blind. Watch intently for ducks to
come in, and stay quiet as ducks come in. Will stay even during shooting
and ducks falling. Will explode into action when you command to go fetch
the downed ducks. The dog will line out on blind retrieves, stop on whistle,
cast in the direction you indicate, and find the blind retrieve. The dog only
gets better at lining and casting and whistle stopping.
The dog can get better at whatever job trained for. And stays obedient
to your commands.
THIS IS THE DOG WE ALL DREAM FOR AND
NOW WE CAN HAVE OUR DREAM DOG
