In the past, training was normally about the master dominating the dog. Even the word "master" suggests domination, both in a physical and mental sense. While some of the old school type trainers may beg to differ, the effect was for the dog to obey because he was afraid to do any any thing else.

Even the female trainers developed deep masculine like voices, and training sessions was like the drill square in an army barracks. Experience has told us that brute force and ignorance are not the best way to train a dog.

In some of the larger, tougher, intelligent guard breeds this method is actually counter-productive. Breeds like the Rottweiler have no intentions of being dominated or frightened into compliance, But they are quite willing to work with you in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Your attitude is of great importance, as a dog is some what vulnerable in the hands of an ill-tempered or ignorant owner. The dog can suffer from the most abject misery but he lacks any form of redress, other than biting you. If the dog reacts in this way, he will be thought of as a vicious dog and will probably be put to sleep or discarded.

Obviously a dog who bites without really good cause cannot be condoned, although it is worth remembering that many biting incidents happen through misuse or lack of knowledge on the part of the owner. Experienced dog handlers are always confident, and never show fear of the dog. They do not expect to be bitten,and due to this confidence they very rarely are bitten, even though they are working with sometimes very difficult and/or very powerful dogs.

A dog are very aware of fear in people. The scent of fear is very unsettling for a dog: He knows that something is wrong and usually results in the dog becoming fearful himself.

Apart from confidence, the other vital attribute for success is being able to control your temper,an explosion of rage,possibly accompanied by physical violence, willl achieve absolutely nothing and will only aggravate the situation. The only effect losing your temper will have is to create fear or resentment in your dog, and could possibly undo all the good work you have already done in the past. Losing your temper with your dog for his failure to understand and carry out your wishes is not a genuine reason to cause you annoyance. A cross tone of voice is an effective way of showing your disapproval.

There are no magic wands or special formulas which will help you train your dog. Dog psychologists or dog behaviour consultants may be able to give you a theoretical reason for your dog's behaviour which can help you understand the problem, but the cure will almost certainly come from careful, repetitive training, together with understanding, to instil in the dog what is required or to restore his confidence. To be successful with the training of your dog, you require two things plenty of patience and your pockets filled with titbits. With a dog, kindness and bribery will get you almost anything.
