==> BEST dog training approach revealed:
Haptic and Audiovisual Dog Training
Dog Training Made SUPER-EASY!
Recently I encountered what has become our favourite dog training recommendation.
But before I share this with you let me first explain different training approaches altogether because the secret to the BEST DOG TRAINING lies right HERE!
You know, normally dog owners buy books and/or watch youtube videos to learn how to teach their dog the behavior they desire. All of these are more or less suitable for dog training in general and German Shepherd training in particular.
However, although all of this has its justification, often we are not happy with our own or our dog's training success, either content-wise or time-wise, mostly both. And right so, because we expect that when we BUY dog training, this will actually change our dog's behavior the way we desire - and fast.
What was lacking yet
There hasn't really been a resource that gives dog owners their own personal dog trainer - I mean as much as this is possible without the real thing, ie without booking and paying a dog trainer!
Also, there hasn't been a resource that allows us to copy HOW the trainer would HANDLE SPECIFIC ISSUES, rather than giving us basic to advanced dog training tips.
Different Training Approaches and their Outcome
The least effective training is AUDIO Training (audio only). For this very reason there is the saying: "This goes in at one ear and out at the other". Humans and animals alike don't LISTEN very well (although dogs HEAR very well).
Better, but still not great, is VISUAL Training (visual only). An indicative saying is: "What you see is what you get" (what you understand). Indeed this existed long before the computer-adaptation "What you see is what will be reproduced".
Even better, but not yet most effective, is AUDIOVISUAL Training (narrated visual training), because it combines TWO senses: What we HEAR AND SEE.
Almost the best training is where we WRITE DOWN CATCHWORDS of the training content we heard and/or saw EARLIER. Because now our brain has to RECALL the training content (as opposed to RECOGNIZE it in a given list) and our fingers perform physical movement to write it down.
However, the MOST EFFECTIVE TRAINING of any kind (not just dog training but our personal training too) is HAPTIC Training. Haptic means that we can TOUCH training-related content and FEEL it. Another word for this is TACTILE. With haptic or tactile training we are always PHYSICALLY INVOLVED in the training content.
There also is a difference between UNDERSTANDING and REMEMBERING training content, but this would stray too far away from the purpose of this Periodical.
BEST Dog Training
The most effective dog training is HAPTIC Training (see above). Meaning, a dog trainer walks our German Shepherd AND US, and shows us LIVE - HOW - he trains OUR OWN DOG.
Note that WE HOLD the leash, WE PAT, and WE PRAISE our dog. We PHYSICALLY walk our dog - while the dog trainer is with us, every step of the way.
Needless to say, most of us don't have access to a personal dog trainer in our neighborhood, and even if there is one, we can't AFFORD to pay him everytime and all the time!
So, what's the second best thing to sliced bread?
