My Neighbor Couldnt Believe How Fast I Was Able To Get This Young Dog To Respond Reliably Off Leash

Please keep the​ following a​ secret. Don't tell anyone. I don't want everyone "and their uncle" copying my dog training techniques/concepts and then claiming them as​ their own.


My neighbor couldn't believe it. I'd just brought this beautiful 9 month-old German Shepherd dog home,​ only two weeks ago,​ and already she was responding reliably to​ off-leash commands. (Or more specifically,​ coming immediately when I call and responding instantaneously to​ the​ word,​ "No!" from a​ distance...without yelling or​ screaming).

"How is​ it​ possible,​ Adam? We've had our dog for over three years,​ and he never listens to​ us! You've had your dog for less than two weeks and she's already responding to​ your commands,​ off-leash... and you​ only whisper your commands,​ once? I'm jealous."

"Look,​" I replied,​ "It's all in​ the​ book."

[To read more about this book I referred to,​
please see: ]

"Okay,​ okay... I need to​ go back and read the​ book,​" he responded. "But at​ least give me a​ tip as​ to​ how you​ got such fast results with this dog?"

I replied,​ "Well,​ it's definitely easier if​ you​ know what you're doing,​ from Day 1. I never gave this dog an​ opportunity with me where she could learn that she can run away,​ or​ not respond to​ commands... without there being a​ negative association with disobedience. And that's the​ secret. Once you​ teach the​ dog to​ understand what commands mean,​ the​ next big step is​ to​ let the​ dog choose to​ do correct or​ incorrect behavior... BUT: Be sure that you're always in​ a​ position to​ reinforce the​ desired outcome."

"She learned quickly that it​ was okay if​ she wanted to​ try to​ run off,​ like she did with her previous owner,​ but if​ I called her then every time,​ she's going to​ have the​ opportunity to​ make a​ choice: Do it​ my way and get lots of​ love and praise. or​ do it​ any other way and get a​ correction,​ and then the​ chance to​ make the​ choice again,​" I instructed.

"You need to​ let the​ dog know that every time she does a​ behavior,​ she's going to​ get the​ exact same outcome. And that 'outcome' is​ going to​ have a​ meaningful reaction,​ be it​ positive or​ negative,​" I explained. "Once you've done this,​ then the​ dog very quickly learns that it's best to​ respond to​ ALL COMMANDS quickly because she's going to​ avoid a​ negative association and obtain a​ positive association,​ that much quicker."

In this sense,​ dogs are a​ lot like humans: We go through life trying to​ minimize negative experiences and maximize positive experiences. if​ your dog understands how to​ do this... because you've used my "Three Keys to​ Behavior Modification" (also in​ the​ book,​ on​ page 21)... then you​ will be astounded as​ to​ how lightening fast you​ will achieve results with your dog.

That's all for now,​ folks!
