Obedience Dog Training
The basis of any dog training program is Obedience Dog Training. Without it, a dog can not proceed to advanced dog training techniques such as Shutzhund, protection, or therapy. Dogs of every breed and temperament can undergo obedience dog training, as long as the correct method of dog training is used, and the training is done consistently and correctly.
Obedience Dog Training and Dog’s Nervous System
In order to determine the proper method of obedience dog training for your dog, our professional trainers will first test your dog’s nervous system. There are 4 nervous systems a dog can possibly have: Choleric, Sanguinic, Phlegmatic, and Melancholic.
A Choleric dog is one whose nervous system is constantly in an elevated state, and has trouble calming down. Many choleric dogs are also aggressive. In order to solve an aggression problem, the dog must be obedient. A dog with this nervous system may take longer to train than the next nervous system, which is Sanguinic.
A Sanguinic dog will be able to make the transition from play to calm very quickly, and is the easiest dog to train. Although your dog may not behave very well now, it is still very likely that he or she has the sanguinic nervous system. The obedience dog training program for this nervous system is the shortest out of the four.
You may have a Phlegmatic dog if you have trouble getting your dog interested in playing with you, or it may seem at times that he or she lacks the energy to even go on walks. We use a more gentle approach in obedience dog training with this kind of dog, and the training program may take longer than one with a sanguine dog.
The last nervous system that may occur in a dog is the Melancholic nervous system. Your dog may be melancholic if you have trouble getting him or her to be active at all. This is one of the most difficult dogs to train, but they are trainable if given the right amount of time and the correct training.
