    Lots of great information on these videos but would like to see these methods with a small dog ie chihuahua or maltese. It much harder to get eye contact when the dog is so low to the ground. Any suggestions?

      It does not matter what breed it is, because any dog will accept the right leadership. The sad truth is that a lot of humans look at their dog(s) as a human, and this has to change, because a dog is a dog. Mostly women choose the smaller dogs, and call them their babies and what not, thus they will have a dog all over the place. If you believe a smaller dog is simply less demanding because of its size, you need to think again. Any dog will try to dominate you if you don’t know dog behavior, and how to control a dog. A dog need empathy and leadership, and a good balance between the two, given at the right time. Most people either give too much affection or too much leadership, thus they get a dog with issues. We as humans have to accept and understand it is never the dogs fault, and no need to have so much pride that we blame the dog for everything, because the truth is that you as the owner is the responsible one for all of his/her behavior. If you as the owner is not the leader, the dog will easily dominate you, and that is his/her way of telling you to take responsibility. Never hurt the dog or loose your temper, just be firm and relaxed and get his/her attention. Dogs have bad short term memory, so you need to address behavior right then and there, so they have a chance of learning. Be consistent, have patience, this is not a race. Be the empathic leader that know how and when to show affection, and when to address behavior through leadership. Affection is only for when he/she is doing something right, and leadership is for when he/she show unaccepted behavior. Know your dog, and you will be rewarded.
      Dogs easily pick up on your energy, so if you are nervous and try to be the leader, he/she will be confused. You have to know you are the leader, and own that calm assertive energy, so you really need to pay attention to what you really show through your own behavior so you understand why your dog respond like he/she does. Don’t try to be the leader – BE the leader.
      If this sounds too much on you, you simply should not own a dog, because any dog deserve better.

      Well, I don’t like this “it’s not the dog’s fault” saying. Yes, the human world and its society may not fit into a dog’s natural way of being but that’s too bad. We provide food, shelter, companionship, and love for them. It’s not like they have to starve for days if they can’t catch food or freeze out in the rain somewhere. Putting up with a little “training” is the least they can do. It doesn’t matter if they don’t “understand.” They better do what we tell them and that’s end of story.

      You do realize that dogs helped us build civilization, right? Our evolutionary histories are intertwined.

      If you can’t acknowledge that and respect how dogs need to be communicated with, you should probably not have one.

    You mentioned if you have a high energy dog, long walks are not the best way to get their energy out. You suggest hikes etc. but these don’t seem feasible for everyday exercise. What would you recommend?

    I have the totally opposite problem. My 12 WO Lab puppy is hyper BUT she won´t walk outside. When I get her outside she wants to go back to the house and cause mayhem there, I have to pull her to get her to walk, drag her actually… She now is almost always just lying down and refusing to walk

    Lol Ignore a bad behavior and it’ll magically go away. Giving treats for sitting gets rid of jumping and pulling??? Unbelievable.

    I Love my little hunter but dachshunds are as hard headed as they come. One the walks, when he sees a squirrel or rabbit, forget it. After one year, I finally got it to sometimes not pull after he poops so I can use a bag.
