Graduation day for Puddin. Big shout out to K918 Dog Training located just east of Mannford. In 4 classes we went from a wild, jerk your arm out of the socket walk and load my 76# butt in the jeep. To a no tug leash walk and single command leap in the jeep. Shannell (I hope I spelled that right) did awesome in explaining how the dogs understood and responded to commands. It was worth every penny to have a professional tell us how to work with our dog. And yes, that is Puddin's happy face. Thank you for showing us we had a even greater dog than we thought.

Tulsa's go to balanced dog trainer. My goal is to help frustrated dog owners become confident dog LEADERS! My training style is always catered to what is best for the individual dog.

Frank went home on Sunday and I already miss him dearly! The house is much quieter without his grunts & snorts😭

So proud of the progress this guy made, whoever said pugs can’t be trained is highly mistaken. Five months old and more motivated to work than a lot of the other dogs I’ve trained. You just have to be willing to put in the time.

Hello friends! I have a huuuuge favor to ask & I’m hoping y’all can help me!

A new client of mine was driving home the other night when she saw a dog get hit by a car, the person who hit her just left her there.

Here is her story.

“My little boy and I were driving through Kiefer last night when someone hit this poor girl and then quickly fled the scene. So my little one and I pulled over to check on her. She was hurt badly. The police were called and they got in touch with animal control. Originally they were going to take this pup to the pound and drop her off for her to be put down. But we couldn't let that happen. Even being badly hurt, she never once growled, bit, or showed aggression. She licked my sons hand and even rolled as much as she could for a belly rub. I just couldn't stand the thought of not giving this sweet girl a chance. I took it upon myself to cover her vet costs which were $1500 and will be caring for her in my home until she recovers at least! I would love to find her a forever home though as I already have 4 dogs and am struggling financially.”

I am starting a fundraiser to help this amazing woman whose heart is definitely in the right place. She had no idea how she was going to pay for this dog but she helped anyway💙 She’s a God send.

If you can donate anything, even if it’s just $1 we would be eternally grateful! If you’re not able to donate please please pleeeeaaase share her story with your fellow dog lovers. She will also be looking for her forever home once she has recovered.

You can make donations to my business venmo account - k918dogtraining.
Or cashapp - $k918dogtraining

Thank you so much in advance you beautiful people!!!

…you have some sort of consequence to back it up.

No means absolutely nothing to your dog, no matter how many times you say it, how firm you say it or how loud you scream it. You have to teach the meaning of the word, just like any command.

If you want the word NO to be effective in stopping the behaviors that drive you nuts, implement some sort of consequence immediately following the word (leash correction, sq**rt bottle, spray of compressed air, high level e collar correction, anything your dog does not like)

If not you’re only wasting your breath & allowing your dog to keep doing said behaviors.

I don’t get the chance to work with my own dogs much these days, our training is pretty much 2 walks a day, play time in the back yard & a lot of place stays in the house.

I can tell when they’re bored & it makes me feel guilty. They may not have any behavioral problems that I NEED to work on everyday, but they love to work & I’m slacking on them.

Teaching Roman something new here - he heels on my right so now I’m teaching him to heel on my left using the cue ‘left’. Not super necessary for the average dog but there are some scenarios it may come in handy for you.
🔹Builds extra engagement with the handler (all dogs can use improvement here)
🔹Creates space between dog & a fearful trigger such as people or other dogs (always advocating for their space)
🔹Walking through tight spaces in a store where carts may be approaching on one side (save those toes from getting run over!)
🔹Approaching another person who may be afraid of dogs & is showing signs of nervousness (lets that person know “Don’t worry, I’ll get him out of your way” & puts the person at ease)

No this is not Champ, this is actually one of my new clients Woodrow, a 9 month old yellow lab who has the greatest owners of all time. They’re exact words are “we want to take his training as far as it will go” and that we WILL!! He’ll be exploring Colorado off leash with them in no time.

Up to this point he’s been restricted to a certain area of their house because he’s so impulsive & energetic. His mom just sent me this photo of him on place in the living room ready to cheer on the Cowboys as they play the Sooners.

They’re OSU fans so of COURSE they’re the greatest owners😉 GO POKES!!!

I missed out on Champ’s puppy years but I tell him all the time “I wish I knew you as a puppy”

We hunted down some old photos of his first time in the snow & they sure did not disappoint!😍😭😍
He’s like the Ge**er baby of dogs.

“A process whereby individuals control their own behavior by rewarding themselves”

It doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a tangible reward for them at the end, they do it because it FEELS good.

You may have a dog that will chase a squirrel every chance he gets, lets say in his lifetime he chases 1000 squirrels & never catches a single one. If your dog were human he almost certainly would have given up by now, I mean he’s failed 1000 times in a row right?

It’s not really about catching the squirrel, it’s about the seratonin & endorphins released when he’s chasing the squirrel. It FEELS good, & that’s why he’ll keep chasing another 1000 squirrels until he’s too old to walk.

Other common self rewarding behaviors are jumping, nipping, barking, chewing & hu***ng. In some cases people ignore their dog hoping that will discourage the behavior, but in reality they’re already rewarding themselves.

Dogs need rules, just like kids do.

If they think the inside of your home is Disneyland where there are no rules problem behaviors WILL happen.

PART 2

This is how Cash reacted to the garbage truck the other day.

Yes he’s wearing an ecollar here but that’s not how we got this new reaction, giving him a high level correction on day 1 is not how you solve this problem, that doesnt change his mental state. This was our 5th session & almost 2 months of consistent work from his owner went into this.

We started from the ground up: implementing structure in the house, crate training him (which he loves now & I seriously do think that was the key to solving majority of his issues) teaching impulse control with the place command & threshold manners, learning to walk on leash, utilizing his crazy obsession with the ball to change his mindset. ALLLLL THAT, is how we got this new reaction.

The ecollar was the cherry on top, giving him juuuust enough freedom in the yard but still holding him accountable through solid (low level) communication.

Cash had a bite history & made having guests over almost impossible, some people even wanted him euthanized. I’m so happy Shannon got in touch with me so we could not only save this boy’s life but also change the way he viewed the world. I could not be more proud of the work she has put into him, their whole family is still in disbelief of his transformation.
Way to go Cash & Shannon!

PART 1
NEUROTIC. The best word to describe how Cash would react to all trucks driving by, people pulling into the driveway or even just his existence. He was terrified of the world. The vet wanted him on trazodone…..if you know me you’ll know my thoughts about that, check out part 2 to see how he’s transformed with NO DRUGS!

Photos from Country Roads Animal Rescue Society's post 11/12/2021

Calling for the help of my fellow Okies, this dog desperately needs our help in sharing his story!!!

Quiller is in OKC with a loving family, he got loose and chased after the neighbors cat, bit the cat but he is still alive. The family has paid for the cats vet bills, but the neighbor reported him to animal control & the judge has ordered him to be euthanized. I have offered to train Quiller for free to control his prey drive around cats, which is possible I promise. We need the judge to see this offer and agree to release the dog as long as the family agrees to training.

If you’ve been one of my clients please share his story & your experience with me as your trainer, I know I can help him.

My personal opinion about the ecollar when it comes to off leash reliability.

This is an incredible tool for many reasons, but when it comes to an off leash recall too many people don’t take into consideration how the dog is understanding that situation.

EXAMPLE (typical human thought process)
1. Slap ecollar onto dog
2. Let dog get 40 yards away
3. Call dog back
4. Dog doesn’t come, ecollar correction

If the dog doesn’t already know what come means why would it all of the sudden know this new sensation on it’s neck means “come back to me”? How do they know you’re even the one controlling this stim?

They don’t.

We have to teach them what this thing means, otherwise there’s a good chance that the first time you use it the dog will get spooked & run even further away from you.

Most dogs don’t even know what the leash means even though they can actually SEE a physical thing connecting us to them. But we still have to teach them it means “follow me” not “pull me”.

I always teach the dog what I want using a leash first, it minimizes stress & confusion, which is important when building a good relationship. Once they truly know what to do THEN I’ll use the ecollar to reinforce that, because they already know it very well.

Yea it may take a little longer, but it produces a much better & more consistent outcome, not to mention a much happier dog. If your dog cowers when you get the remote collar out there’s a 100% chance you didn’t use it correctly.

2 weeks ago Moxie wouldn’t take food out of my hand, not even ham. She would cower in the back of the kennel anytime I approached to let her out.
Now look at her!!

She has completely changed & gained so much confidence I’m seeing her spunky attitude more everyday. I didn’t smother her with love & affection to get to this point, I added a lot of structure to our daily routine & gave her simple tasks she could accomplish & be proud of. Honestly I think the lack of affection is what has made her love me even more. She clearly WANTS the love, but I made her work for it so now it’s even more meaningful for her.

Other “professionals” are so quick to jump to these suggestions these days it makes me sick. Drugs are only a bandaid on the bigger issue, they don’t change your dogs mental state they only distort it.

Dog owners can be very naive or even desperate & think “well if this is what this highly qualified doctor is telling me to do then I guess that’s what I have to do”

I’m currently working with multiple dogs who were recommended to take trazedone because they are high energy….😒 luckily their owners had the sense to look into training instead. How about we get these dogs exercise to work off that energy instead? Or some mental stimulation so they have to slow down & think? There are some very scary studies out there that @aft_dog_training & @sailorjerri420 are digging into & sharing with this community, vets are pushing more & more owners to drug their dogs for even minor issues. (Safe to say it’s all about the 💰💰💰for them.)

The world we live in these days is so caught up in finding the quick fix to every problem, we want instant results & will do whatever is convenient for US to get there. But have you considered the dog? Is it fair to them? They are not robots, they require work. If you arent willing to put in hands on work then I would suggest getting a different type of pet.
