Global K9 Specializes in Family Protection Dogs

We at Global K9 Group and Florida k9 Services have from the
inception of our companies specialized in family protection dogs, personal
protection dogs, guard dogs, and security dogs for the family.

Unlike most companies you find on the web, advertising a dog
for your home with your children. They specialize in police and military dogs.
These types of dogs are not usually suited for the family environment. They are
much higher drive which can lead to rough play and occasionally an erroneous
bite.guard dog

This is why we a Global K9 Group and Florida K9 Services,
typically start with completely green dogs that we have imported. This way we
can be sure that they have not been mis-handled or trained with negative
reinforcement. Many trainers use pinch collars and are much too hard on the
dog. The dog should respond to your commands because he wants to not because he
is afraid not to.

Shock collars aka e collars make a trainer look good but
again it is negative reinforcement. You will need to carry a controller with
you everywhere you go with your dog. You want your dog to perform for you without fear of consequences but because he wants to please you.

Obedience Training

The difference between Obedience training and Behavioral modification.

 

We get lots of calls and email everyday from people desperately wanting us to train their dogs in obedience.  We love building an understanding between dogs and their owners and are always excited to start working with a new team.

When asked what problems they are having we usually hear things like, jumping, chewing, ‘going’ inside the house, aggression towards dogs or people and being destructive.  We hear, “My dog just doesn’t listen, she needs obedience training!”  While we are happy to help, it is important that we point out the difference between Obedience and Behavioral issues.  Obedience training teaches your dogs commands, or cues.  These include commands such as to sit, stay, down, come, or heel. Obedience!

Behaviors on the other hand are things like, chewing, aggression, jumping and housebreaking.

Sometimes obedience training can help correct behavioral issues.  Teaching a dog to sit, can redirect a dog who is jumping for attention, for example. Behavioral

The reason it is important to stress the difference between the two is while we can certainly train a dog to learn and follow commands.  Behavioral issues can take more time, and consistent reinforcement.  Think about any bad habit you may have, and how it may take you a long time and much willpower to overcome it.

Make sure when looking for a trainer to help with your dogs behavioral issues that you understand the methods used and that you are comfortable doing them as you will be needing to consistently reinforce the behavior you desire.
