101 Russian Dog Wizard Advice 

Loose Leash - Always walk your dog on a loose leash. Tension on a leash can cause frustration which may be taken out on other dogs or moving objects.

Supervise - Supervise your dog at all times. You must witness a problem in order to correct it and prevent it from reoccurring

A Tired Dog is a Good Dog - Fulfill your dog’s needs both mentally and physically. A 15 - 20 minute run, twice a day will serve your dogs’ physical needs. 30 minutes of obedience training will have a therapeutically profound effect on your dog and will serve your dogs’ mental needs.

Attention - You can’t teach a dog if you do not have his attention. Get his attention first before you give a command.

Jobs - If you don’t give your dog a job to perform at, he will eventually find one himself and you won’t like what he chooses! 

Calm and Assertive - Do not yell and scream at your dog when he is behaving badly.

Attachment - Don’t let your dog follow you around like a laser guided missile. This behavior can lead to separation anxiety.

Love and Discipline - Always balance love with discipline and structure. If love was all that was needed, my business would not be thriving!

Tonality - Tone of voice is extremely important. A high pitch tone is a sign of approval and a low tone is a sign of disapproval. Your dog will clearly understand this.

Praise - Praise your dog for doing something right. Praise does not always mean you have to shower your dog with affection. It simply means you need to say “Good boy / girl” in a high pitch tone of voice.

Ignoring Problems - Ignoring problem behavior will not make it go away. Ignoring is condoning and condoning is approval in your dogs’ mind.

Behaving Badly - Dogs behave badly because they know they can and they don’t understand it is wrong.

Russian Dog wizard advice :

A child-controlled dogBecome the Alpha in your dogs’ life by a serious obedience training. In this case your dog will respect you and everything which belongs to you, including the children. This is the law of the pack, and your dog has a natural instinct for this. Remember, an obedient dog is a problem free dog!

As you decrease your dogs’ social status and increase your authority, you can begin to enhance your child’s social status in your dogs’ eyes. Children are often victims of canine aggression when they cross the line from the dogs’ point of view. Children are considered by adult dogs as puppies that should behave according to their social status.

Russian dog wizard says " Your dog thinks children should show submission and respect but not when they are interrupting him as he sleeps, nudging him when he is walking through a room, or trying to grab his favorite bone or toy or petting him when he is lying down or sleeping" Children are always trying to harass dogs with games and by grabbing their skin, tail, and pulling their ears all over their head. When you do not punish your children for behaving this way, your dog thinks that your puppy-child is out of control. He then feels that he must do it for you!

Russian dog wizard Tip: Stop your child calmly, without screaming, take your child to a separate room and then scream and yell at the child if you want to. But don’t do it in the presence of your dog!

Dogs use their mouth as we use our hands and they use their teeth as we use our fingers. They will shove a child away from them by using their mouth and teeth. Your dog bites your children not because he hates them or wants to kill them. Your dog simply wants to inflict pain so the children will leave him alone.
