Loving your dog the way they love you
Loving your dog means fulfilling their needs. What she needs is far greater than food, shelter and love. Have you ever wondered why your dog who is loved, fed the best food ever and has a comfortable home still exhibits any of the below behaviours?
cries when you leave home
is agressive towards other dogs
is protective of food and toys
is afraid of sound and objects
jumps at visitors
pees or poops in the house
You may think she needs training and you might be right. But you might have also seen dogs who are well trained, they sit on command and they heel on command but still are anxious around other dogs, or bark at strangers, or cry when their human leaves them alone at home. In general, dogs develop behavioural issues when their needs are not fulfilled and not because they are not trained.
Remember, if your dog is chewing things up, he is telling you that he is board or anxious – please do something about it. If your dog is afraid of other dogs and barks at them, she is not asking you to avoid meeting other dogs – quite the opposite – she is asking you to help her find dog friends so she can overcome her problem. If she is overexcited and jumps at you, yes she is happy to meet you, she is also very excited. Excitement is not always a happy state of mind and other dogs do not welcome that either.
So if you truly love your dog the way she loves you, then you need to devot more time to address these issues. We will work together and identify why she exhibits certain behaviour. We focus on the root, not the fruit.
My methods of addressing these issues are organic ones. I believe that “mum knows best” and always take the lead of other dogs in dealing with those issues. I don’t generally use any tools and I use my dogs to help your dog overcome their issues.
I spent years observing dogs in their natural habitat and around each other. I watched female dogs raising their pups and protecting them and learned fascinating techniques from them. I learned their language and how they communicate. Most importantly, I learned that in order to have a balanced relationship with your dogs and to enjoy this relationship to the fullest, you need to speak their language rather than applying human psychology and humanising them. You need to start treating them like dogs and fulfilling their needs and not your own. That is why I think it is best to have a well-behaved dog than a well-trained one.
Your dog thinks that you are the best person in the world, so be the person she thinks and fulfil her needs.
A guy with a magic stick
Phoenix’s constant barking was resolved in 5 minutes. My wife and I were completely embarrassed how easy it was to calm him down. His barking had become part of our everyday life and not having friend and family around had become somehow ok. I had almost forgotten how life could be with your dog does not bark.
I called Morteza for my dogs, little did I know it was me who needed the training. He fixed the issue in a session but left with a lot of knowledge to follow through. I honestly don’t remember when I walked my dogs together as they would pull my shoulder off. I could not believe that in 30 minutes I was walking my dogs and Morteza’s together. Amazing result and experience.
Very talented individual with an unbelieve energy
Viper lived with fear for 3 years, did not want to come out of home, did not want to play with any dogs, did not want to be touched. Almost every trainer I approached failed in helping Viper. There is something special in Morteza’s energy that helped Viper to trust him. I was amazed to see Morteza using his dog to build trust, I was amazed to see how patient he was during all training sessions. We have made tremendous progress and we are still working on it. Thank you Morteza
No gimmicks, no tricks
It was amazing how quickly he gained the trust of Coco with no treat. Coco instantaneously followed his lead, for the first time did not bark at other dogs. Morteza is very generous in leaving his knowledge behind so you can practice that at home. It was also very interesting for us to see he recommended no tools and instead gave us the knowledge to use it as tool.
