VanBuren Shepherds uses a complete dog handler training program, that teaches the dog handler how to make positive educated decisions. This will enable the handler to always remain calm, and to focus on the goal at hand. This program will also show the handler how to recognize triggers. (i.e. something that the handler allows to push their buttons and cause them to lose control of the training session) How to adjust the method of training, so that the training sessions will always remain a positive learning experience for both the handler and the dog.
By using the fundamentals of The Peaceful Solution Character Program, Inc. The dog handler can begin to implement these dog handler training strategies, that will motivate them to focus on their desired goals, while using realistic expectations. It will also teach the dog handler how to properly show respect for the dog and the environment surrounding them both. This will allow the handler to be more aware of his surroundings, and to better understand the problems that distractions can cause for a dog during a training exercise.
The handler will also begin to learn to focus more on the positive outcomes then the negative setbacks. The dog handler will gain confidence through this type of dog handler training method, by realizing that they are in complete control, and that they are the only one who can cause them self to lose control of the situation. Not the dog! The handler will see what they can honestly expect from the dog, and begin to accept the limitations that both of them have. If a dog was not bred to be a show dog. Then the handler having the expectations of that dog winning a national dog show is not realistic. In other words the handler will learn to accept the abilities of the dog, and build off those.
A positive environment coupled with positive reinforcement during all training exercises, will build a strong bond between both handler and the dog. With that bond in place, the dog will begin to trust that following any instructions given to it by the handler will always bring about that desired feeling of success. Every dog wants to please its owner, but often times the dog is left unguided on how to do so.
This bond will also develop trust in the handler for the dog. A dog is usually expected to listen to the commands given to them in their own back yard. As long as there are no distractions. When your dog can listen to the commands in a new environment, with all kinds of distractions, then that shows the desired bond between handler and dog is present.
This bond begins simply by teaching the dog to make eye contact with the handler, and maintaining that eye contact during training. If a dog is focused on keeping eye contact with you, then it is less likely that the dog will become distracted. A dog will always look to the handler for guidance, and often times protection from unknown dangers.
This dog handler training program will develop true love and concern that the handler should have for the dog. It will also guide the handler in creating a positive environment for both the dog and their self.
