My wife LOVES Harry Potter.
The books, the movies, she knows the names, places and personalities of everyone and everything in the books.
Me, I like the movies but I’ve always been much more interested in the author, J.K. Rowling.
I think it is fascinating how she came up with the story on a train ride from Manchester to London and went on to become the first BA-BA-BA-Billionaire author.
What many people don’t know is that she had come up with the ending of her story before she ever started writing. In fact, she even wrote the last chapter of her Harry Potter series over 15 years ago. That way, she would know how the series ends and be able to tie everything together.
AND THAT, my dog loving friend, is THE BIG SECRET to training your dog.
Here’s the deal.
When I am faced with a dog that is jumping, pulling, chewing, barking, and going in the other direction when I call, “Come,” I always think about what the dog is going to be like when I am done training.
If I stay focused on how the dog is behaving that day I may give up and that is NOT fair to the dog.
Get a clear picture of what you want your dog to do. Put together a plan to get your dog to do the commands you want and to stop the behaviors that are annoying you.
Put that plan into action and you are well on your way to having the dog you’ve always dreamed of.
And you know what?
One of the best (and easiest) plans to put into action is The Ultimate Online Dog Training Course.
Videos show you exactly what to do and what your dog will learn and has helped many, many dog owners.

Everyone is talking about resolutions and goals this time of the year.
Better relationships, health, finances, train the dog this year, start a business, exercise, etc. etc. etc.
All of us have been told thousands of times that we need to make goals and resolutions.
We have all also heard all the stats – 90% of all goals and resolutions will be abandoned within the first month.
Well, my dog loving friend, you came to the right place to discover the “Secret” to accomplishing your goals this year.
I did not make this up, I learned it from one of the most successful business authors of all time.
Mr. Hill teaches that if you want to accomplish anything, you HAVE to have a “Definiteness of Purpose,” also known as your GOAL.
He adds that you have to write your goal AND include two important words in order to reach your goal.
…since you are addicted to reading my blog posts, I am going to share the two words with you.
You’ll be able to train your dog, eat better, exercise, start a business or accomplish any other goal you may have been thinking about.
Let’s say you want to teach your dog to have good manners this year.
No more stealing, begging, jumping, digging, etc.
You would write out your goal. This does not have to be long or complicated, BUT you have to include the two words.
Your goal could look like this:
“I (your name) will teach my dog to have Good K9 Manners in 2013. My dog will learn to greet politely when guests come over, stop begging and stealing food off the table and counters. In return, I will spend ten minutes a day working with my dog and get help with training by investing in Eric Letendre’s Good K9 Manners program.”
Signed – Your name
Did you figure out what the two words were?
Mr. Hill teaches that we can never get something for nothing. You have to write out what you are going to do in order to get your goal completed.
So many people write out their goals and NEVER include the “In return” part.
It is the “Missing “Secret” to goal setting.
As we move into 2013, write out your goals, whatever they are – eating right, exercise, savings or training your dog, review it often and make sure you include “In return” and you’ll be much more successful this year.

Funny how some people think.
I had some friends that got a new springer puppy.
The husband flat out refused to take their puppy to training. He told his wife that he did not need any help training his dog.
Their springer’s behavior got worse as the days and weeks went on and he still refused to get any training.
The puppy ruined their carpet, developed a serious jumping problem, and stole everything within reach.
Then one day it all changed.
I got a phone call asking me when could I come over and do some training.
You see, everything was fine UNTIL his TV remote was chewed to bits by his dog.
That was the game changer.
I thought it was funny how my friend would put up with just about any behavior until his TV remote was destroyed.
Anyway, one of the best ways to deal with behavior problems is to never let them start.
For example, if you never start smoking you never have to worry about quitting.
If my friend had started right away teaching his pup what was he was and was not allowed to chew on, it would have been much easier for him and his pup.
If your dog has developed problems that you don’t like (jumping, chewing, barking, digging, etc.) you can still teach your dog to STOP doing these behaviors.
That’s where the Good K9 Manners program comes in.
The website shows you exactly how to STOP behaviors you don’t like and how to apply each training session to get the results you are looking for.
Protect your TV remote today. Get all the details here:

Did you know that Basenjis can’t bark.
That bassett hounds can’t swim.
That Newfoundlands have webbed feet.
AND…bitter apple does NOT stop chewing.
Lot of questions about chewing lately.
Most dog owners make the mistake of getting bitter apple, spraying it on their stuff thinking it will stop their dog from chewing.
Many times this will actually make the behavior WORSE.
How can this be?
Let me share a little secret with you. The reason bitter apple does not work is because it is trying to stop the behavior using the dog’s sense of taste.
It is much better and easier to stop chewing using your dog’s sense of smell.
Here is a little test for you. Spray some bitter apple on a slice of cheese and offer it to your dog.
If your dog eats the cheese with the bitter apple on it, HOW will it stop your dog from chewing?
The short answer – it won’t.
If you want your dog to stop chewing, you have to find what your dog does NOT like before you can expect it to deter your dog from chewing.
I show some different ways to do this in the videos on the Good K9 Manners course.
Which you can still get for 50% off using the coupon code CYBERMONDAY

Head on over now before it’s too late and see how it’s done.

I’ve been in the dog training game a long time.
Started out in 1988 and have been training ever since.
All of the training I was exposed to in the early days was very negative based. Lot of choke chains, no food or treats – ever, and harsh punishment if the dog did not respond.
It amazes me how forgiving dogs are.
Last Sunday, I met one of the dogs that survived Michael Vick’s dog fighting kennel.
The dog’s name is Cherry Garcia and she was used as bait for dog fights. She spent six months being rehabilitated and was adopted to a family.
Watching Cherry, I could see that she was still nervous and a little shy.
I was, and always will be amazed at how forgiving dogs are.
It still makes me sad to think of the training techniques still being taught today.
Dog training really does not have to be harsh or cruel and I know it can get frustrating when a dog starts to do certain behaviors.
I have gotten angry when I have come home and found my shoes destroyed or poop on the carpet.
It is the reason I developed The M.U.T.T. Method for dealing with behavior problems.
Using the M.U.T.T Method and learning how to apply a negative consequence is all you need to know to stop any behavior problem.
When a consequence is applied correctly, you never have to worry about harming your dog and you can help your dog learn.
