Some Thoughts on Good Dog-Handling




A good handler always displays objectivity and never displays fits of anger

A good handler is patient and uses a training system relevant to the dog's temperament

A good handler always avoids putting the dog in a state of stress or anxiety (conflict)

When the dog IS corrected, the corrections appear under-done and are surprisingly brief

The dog and handler live and work together as a team, not as a master and servant

A good handler creates an 'active' dog, one that makes few mistakes and has mental balance

A good handler strives to be a calm, consistent but firm pack leader

Excellence in pack leadership skills always brings about respect from the dog

And a dog that respects its handler is an easy dog to train


Remember:  A handler always ends up with the dog he deserves.....
