"We have two dogs a Rough Collie named Ben (5 years) and a Boarder Collie cross Lakeland Terrier named Mindy (8 months). Ben was a rescue dog and was so grateful to be re-homed that he was a breeze to train, Then came along the puppy from Hell Mindy and we really needed help with her from the start, so we decided to buy sit stay fetch. After reading through Sit stay Fetch we got some very good ideas on how to handle her. I am not saying that it is a magic
cure and that it happens over night because it doesn't , and it is hard work. But if the people stick to the explanations given it is very worth it in the end.
Mindy was so much of a handful with my three children that we had thought of actually getting rid of her, but with Sit stay Fetch being on hand to read and refer back to when needed, we have no thought of that anymore. The book has every problem -/ Solution that we have come across with Mindy, and even though there is still along way for us to go with her, we are happy in our-self's because when she throws a problem at us the answer is just a few pages away."

Geoff responded a few weeks later with the following:
Thank you for your reply. The problem of mouthing hands or arms no longer exists. I resolved that by holding his mouth shut (gently) and (again gently) telling him "no" as you suggested.
He is aggresive now for play, only. Unfortunately he is always ready to play. I refuse to play 'tug of war" with him, even though that is want he wants. Previous homes must have encouraged it. Also, if I put on work gloves with cuffs, that appears to be a signal to him for play. Perhaps somebody used heavilly padded gloves for play in his past.
He doesn't nip skin, only clothing. So far he has not torn anything, but it's a game to him. He does not display any signs of viciousness. He is fine with other people, young and old. He appears to love small children, but I would not dare allow anything other than petting him while on leash.
I sent for a dog training device which allegedly emits high frequency signals barely audible to human ears, but distasteful to animals. It is advertised for protection as well as training. You probably have seen it advertised. I'm not completely convinced it will work, but I'm desperate. I would not consider shock collars, however.
I bought your book out of desperation. It is very good advice, however this case seems to be at the top end of dog behavior problems.
I think that Jake recognises he is not the alpha in this home, but he desperately needs a sparring partner--somebody to play rough with. Another dog could possibly be the answer to his problem, but would be a problem for my wife and I.
I'll let you know how I make out with the training device. Perhaps it might be helpful to somebody else contacting you to know if it does or doesn't work.
Hopefully, with maturity he will settle down. He has, however, found his final home. We love him, "warts" and all.
As I said, here are the results of the Pet Trainer. It is about the size of a small cell phone, powered with a 9volt battery which emits a high frequency sound I cannot hear at all. However, it makes Jake's hair stand on end. He hates it. I used it about 6 to 8 times the first 2 days I had it, and haven't had to use it since. All I have to do is take it out of my pocket and he immediately responds without having to press the button for the signal. Today I didn't even take it outside with me. Once, I put my hand into a empty pocket and he reponded immediately. It has only been a few days, but he is a different dog. I really believe it is the answer to my problem.
Pet Agree Training Device Please pass it on. It might not work for everybody, but it sure does for me---at least so far.
The Pet trainer worked well in this case but I have heard mixed results especially if your dog is slightly nervous. These types of products can cause a fear reaction in your dog, which is not ideal at all. Also it appears that some dogs actually get used to the Trainer after a short period of time. Personally I would stick with the training methods and techniques outlined in Secrets to Dog Training - for example positive reinforcement and repetition. This type of training device should be a last resort.

I've been a professional dog trainer for well over 20 years, and in that time I've helped thousands of dog owners just like you to get the friendly, well behaved, slipper fetching, best pal they always wanted.
But it didn't start out that way. I've always loved dogs, some things never change. But when I first started my professional dog training career I relied on the so-called 'best practices' when it came to dog behavior training. It was only when I heard people tell me over and over again that they just weren't seeing results that I started to question the old accepted wisdom. So I started a journey, a quest to search out the best, most effective, techniques, tips, and tricks that really work.
And that's how I came up with Secrets to Dog Training. Year after year I found new techniques that achieved the results I wanted. Eventually I had a whole book worth of great resources: Secrets to Dog training...
So, if you want to:
Then Secrets to Dog Training is just what you've been looking for!
