We continue to waste puppyhood: Are we going to raise puppies to be well-behaved, good natured, friendly and confident adult dogs, or are we going to continue to manufacture large numbers of shelter dogs - dogs that soil the house, chew, bark excessively, become anxious when left at home alone and are wary, fearful, snappy, or aggressive towards people?

We must teach people how to prevent behaviour problems, otherwise we’ll be out of a job. Common and predictable behaviour problems are the most common reason why people become dissatisfied with and eventually get rid of their dogs. Sadly, preventable behavior problems are the #1 terminal illness for domestic dogs. Dogs will still develop behavior problems, but the earlier we act, the easier they are to resolve. Or, to put it another way, the longer the dog has a bad habit, the harder it becomes to break. And if owners think that retraining will require a lot of time and effort, often they won’t seek help from a trainer.

We must super-socialise dogs to prevent the development of temperament problems such as anxiety, fearfulness, and aggression towards people and other dogs, otherwise we won’t be able to do our job. The whole point of early socialisation is that when dogs develop temperament problems, the prognosis is good and trainers can help the owners resolve the problems quickly, easily and safely.

The secret of a successful dog training business is to promote early socialization and handling to breeders, pet store owners and veterinarians by explaining that is in their best interests (to keep their clients alive) to convince owners of the extreme urgency of errorless housetraining, chew-toy training, preventing habitual barking, home-alone preparation programs and safe (at home) socialization with people before three months of age.
