Building Grips in Young Dogs

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses:

  • Laying a good foundation for bite work from a young age. 
  • Using a flirt pole to emulate prey action to entice the puppy. 
  • Encouraging biting with the back teeth through bite progressions. 
  • Training before and after, but not during, teething. 
  • Focusing on bite mechanics during all aspects of training. 

 

Key Takeaways:

  • The puppy needs to know, from a young age, that he is in control of the process. 
  • A leather rag is a more slippery bite than a terrycloth roll. By using leather, it teaches the dog to lock the grip in if they want to hold and possess it. 
  • Young dogs are super resilient. Introduce items that will become familiar to them from an early age so they can start to hear the noises that will be around. 
  • As you progress, the more grips the dog can do per session and the longer they can hold the grip. 

 

“The idea is, from the beginning, a dog needs to learn if he’s going to do bite work properly, that he’s in control of the whole process. It’s a very operant process and he has to understand that he’s going to be able to push me around, he’s going to be able to manipulate me, even if I’m just coming in and trying to steal his little rag.” —  Jerry Bradshaw

William Garrido: Dog Training is My Passion!

In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw & William Garrido discuss:

  • William’s journey into dog training and his professional journey to head trainer at Starmark Academy. 
  • The value in working with dogs of all types and temperaments. 
  • Continuing learning while keeping your focus and system of training. 
  • Understanding the unchanging fundamentals. 

 

Key Takeaways:

  • You can learn a lot about dogs and behavior by training pet dogs. Even if you work with working dogs, there is still more to learn from pet dogs. 
  • There is value in learning training at a school with a specific, outlined curriculum led by professionals. 
  • Dog training is not all glamour – there is a grind and dirty and challenging aspects to it. 
  • Fundamentals are always going to be there, that’s not going to change. The scientists have done the legwork for you, you just have to understand how that applies to dog training and to learning.

 

“I see tremendous value in going to a place where there’s a curriculum laid out for you, and professionals guiding you through that curriculum.” —  William Garrido
