The Secret to Dog Training: Say Goodbye to Only Using Treats and Punishment

Dog training is all about teaching a dog what you want, and teaching them what you don’t want. The problem is that you don’t talk dog, so it’s very hard to teach your dog what you want. When you go to some big box store and they teach you in a group setting how to use treats and a clicker they tend to only listen with treats.

What happens when the treats aren’t around to bribe your dog, or the distraction is better than the treat? Your dog basically chooses not to listen. When your dog doesn’t listen you get frustrated and end up with a crazy dog that nobody wants to be around. That sucks.

Obviously all dogs are different, what works for some is not going to work for all. The best option is to learn how bridge the communication gap through custom techniques, your praise, and energy. Yes energy is real. Think about it, don’t you listen to confident professionals when the give you advice? Do you think you would listen if they were not confident or it just felt wrong? Probably not. Thats how dogs communicate, I mean they don’t know english yet.

Since your not a dog trainer, its best to hire one who has spent years learning how to communicate with dogs, and can customize your training based on you, your family, and your dog. At MasterPaw we do just that we come by your home train your dog, but most importantly train you how to get your dog to listen.

Imagine having that good dog who listens not because you have treats, but because they genuinely want to work for you. Whether you are looking at puppy or dog basics to advanced obedience with off leash, MasterPaw can help you get there.

Stop The Craziness

A dog that you pulls you down the block is no fun. We stop it in minutes. Its all about helping the dog understand hey follow me. Dog training is about teaching the dog what is acceptable vs unacceptable. The only problem is your not a dog trainer and you don’t know how to talk dog, have a good dog that listens to you.

Ever see a dog owner who says their dog is trained, but when they try they are basically just repeating the command over and over, and just getting frustrated? Perhaps this could be you. It sucks when a dog doesn’t listen, it makes for a horrible relationship. We teach you how to bridge that gap. We teach you how to talk talk.

So what is a good dog? A good dog understands rules and boundaries, walks by you side, understands how to sit, down, stay, and come all on one command without treats or pain.

To get a good dog it comes down to 3 things.

  1. Time
  2. Techniques
  3. Energy

We can give you all customized techniques that are proven to work, train your dog, and you, but without putting in the time you won’t get too far. However if you give your dog two structured “Leader Walks” (This is where you combine basic obedience training and your walks) twice per day for ten to 15 minutes, and incorporate basic obedience in your daily life you will have a good dog who listens in as little as 5 weeks. In fact we fix most leash pulling in 5 minutes.

I can imagine a lot of readers read the word energy and picture and episode from Ceaser Milan. Although he is more a dog personality than dog trainer, energy is real. Think about it, do you listen to people who try to give you advice who aren’t confident? Probably not.

Confidence doesn’t come from bribes like treats. It causes a dog to listen when you have a bag of treats, but when there is a higher level of distraction or no treats, suddenly your dog forgets everything. Confidence, doesn’t mean being mean, it just means you are confident that your dog will do what you ask, because you took the time to train them right. In fact the best treat is your praise, but few know how to deliver it at the right time, or the right way for your dog to want to work with you.

We would love to help you get that good dog. With MasterPaw we will come to your home, give you techniques that don’t rely on treats or pain, are custom to you, your dog, and your whole family. We come by once per week, give you homework, make sure you are making progress, doing the techniques properly, and coach you to become a dog whisperer. Our training is proven, fast, and guaranteed.

How To Do Hard Tricks

Yes a skateboarding dog is pretty cool, and so are any other complex tricks, today we will show you how you can get your dog to do almost anything.
The most important thing you must realize is that all complex tricks should be broken into steps.
Here is how we taught Diesel to skateboard.

We got him comfortable just being on the board by giving him a treat every time he was on it.
We got him comfortable with staying on the board while it was moving. To do this we taught him to stay, tied the skateboard to a piece of string and pulled him around while we gave him treats.
We lured him, meaning we guided him, with the treats to jump on the board going each way. Thats why he understands the turning
We taught him how to push by luring, guiding him with food to, push with 2 paws on and 2 paws pushing then gave him treats
We made ever step really fun, and took our time

We started putting all the different elements together with words. For instance up up, and push, or turn around!
After a lot of time and high enthusiasm he picked it up and became a skateboarding dog.
With every complex tricks it is a series of smaller tricks. Figure out how to break down each element, practice till they get good with each piece and put it together.
How did we teach Rocky to jump on our back?
Same way small steps!

We laid on the floor and gave him food when he got on our back.
We raised our bodies so that we were in a more box like stance, elbows bent more like a table and taught him how to jump on our back.
We gave him a word, practiced a lot and started standing up more and more.
After a while he learned to jump up on our back. 🙂
Again each trick complex trick is a series of smaller easier tricks broken down and then put together through good timing, good treats, and a lot of practice. To learn more tricks keep sign up to our monthly email list from the home page at
