"Why Calling Dog Trainers In Orange County
Could Ruin Your Puppy's Future"

Cognitive learning is learning that takes place without a reward or training, but when something motivational presents itself, such as learning how to open a gate, how to cross traffic, or my favorite example of all, when a friend of mine went unconscious on a nature trail, his dog took his shoe and started running up to people with it. When they went to look for the owner, they found my friend just off the trail. His dog saved his life!


The canine demonstrates the cognition to know what to do without practice, with zero training, without drill, and without ever demonstrating it before. So, in fact, they are observant and learn like children without you being aware of it. โ€‹


Learning is not the same thing as training. It’s like a hobo dog that never needed training to know how to be good in public and knows how to ignore dogs while it’s with the owner without ever being trained to do so. It’s an experienced old soul. It’s like the old show The Littlest Hobo or Lassie.


People often search for  dog training in Orange County to suppress and control a dog, which often makes it more difficult for them to pick up on new things because they don’t often have the ability to make mistakes or observe them on their own. โ€‹ People often control a dog and over manage because they are afraid the dog will be in danger while in public. When that happens, you will notice that Dog trainers in Orange County often say the same thing like a mantra, "That training has to be maintained and always practiced like a drill for the rest of your dog's life. If you don’t keep up on the training, your dog will regress." If this happens, your dog reverts to being more aloof and naive, making puppy-type mistakes! Why you might ask?  because the puppy never learned it on their own latently as they were developing. Instead they got sidetracked by obedience commands taught by a dog trainer. โ€‹ Your puppy was never allowed to explore or develop maturity in themselves as well as make mistakes, because everything they did was controlled and managed with dog obedience commands.


โ€‹ Your goal should be that you want to raise a dog not train a dog. Imagine a mother duck being followed by her babies, and one of them didn’t pay attention to know how all the others got to the other side of a fence. The mother doesn’t race back over to help; she helps by staying nearby to let her baby know that she’s safe, and she waits patiently for her to figure it out. She then focuses on her mother much better and ignores fatal distractions in the future.


So if you wanted to get a puppy off leash without hiring a "dog trainer in Orange County” instead you teach the same lesson the same way as a mother and her ducklings. โ€‹ You play hide and seek, you play chase, but be sure that you’re the only one that runs away; the goal is the puppy has to always chase you. Then Tada! You have a hobo dog! โ€‹ Traditional dog training can’t duplicate this .  Remember, a trained dog only comes to you when you call them, and it always has to be reinforced somehow.


So when raising a puppy we want to teach tasks that are symbiotic to us through daily interactions and chores like children, similar to a service dog. This makes them feel helpful, so they develop maturity doing things that helps them feel useful and appreciated.

We believe that focusing on a puppy's mental development can lead to a more autonomous and well-rounded dog. It's important to note that puppies already influenced by training with toys, food, or tools might need a bit of extra help. They may have missed out on important developmental learning as a result of early conditioning, but no worries! We can guide you on how to teach these important lessons through what we call active learning. If you're about to welcome a new puppy into your home, we encourage you to schedule a free call with us before common mistakes are made. We'd love to help you create a plan for your puppy's first year in their new environment. Feel free to reach out using this link to Schedule a zoom consultation

Our Puppy Raising Program!

An Autonomous Canine is defined as a dog that can independently manage its behaviors, emotions, and reactions, without needing continuous guidance or intervention from its owner or trainer. This idea highlights the dog's natural capacity to comprehend and regulate its own actions, making beneficial choices for itself and its surroundings. In our Canine Cognitive Behavior Program, we focus on enabling dogs to make their own correct decisions, rather than just following human commands or signals. This technique encourages a deeper grasp and assimilation of desired behaviors, resulting in a more cohesive bond between dog and owner.


Our  Orange County Dog Training program comprises a set of exercises that encourage puppies to make decisions independently, thereby boosting their confidence, problem-solving abilities, and competence in navigating various environments without direct human instruction. Our program emphasizes the dog's mental capacity to make appropriate decisions autonomously, without relying on management training or tools like treats or training collars.


We stand out by adopting an approach grounded in scientific psychological theories and traditional knowledge. Unlike conventional training that often depends on operant conditioning methods like positive reinforcement or training tools, our approach is centered on fostering inherent behaviors. This methodology sets us apart from trainers who predominantly use operant conditioning techniques, which can sometimes cause increased anxiety in dogs.
