Some Thoughts on Good Dog-Handler Skills

 

 

 

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.....
