Does it seem like your dog never listens?  Are there behaviors you wish you could change in your dogs?  People often forget that dogs are just that, dogs.  While they often mean more to us than just being a furry, four-legged thing that follows us around,

it does not mean we should be treating them like actual children.  It is important that they understand the pecking order in the house, which should always have them at the bottom of the pack.  But you don't have to be heavy handed to teach your dog that you are the pack leader.  One of the easiest and fastest ways to establish the proper roles in the house is to implement a training technique commonly referred to as "Nothing in Life is Free."

 

The concept is very simple.  Basically, they have to work for all rewards, including food, treats, even affection.  In order to use this technique, it is important for your dog to be well versed in basic obedience commands.  Training classes are the first step at establishing the pecking order.  Once your dog has a firm knowledge of the basic commands, you can use them to reaffirm your dominance over your dog by making them sit before they are offered attention or a treat, and to wait until they are released to eat their dinner.  These simple instructions will not only improve your dog's behavior, but they will also give your dog more confidence in knowing what his or her role is in the house.  Despite popular belief, dogs generally do not want to be a pack leader and welcome the chance at their owners filling that spot.
