This photo is from our session last week. It doesn’t look like much but Dixie, the dog closest to us is very attached to her other human Tyler and gets uncomfortable, and anxious when she is not in the room or leaves.
In this photo she sitting next to Val and not worrying where her Tyler was. We had her stay in “Place” while Tyler left the room, and the apt. While Val was marking and rewarding Dixie with some tasty chicken.
Next to Tyler is Lil’ Apollo asleep in his bed which I have never seen, usually jumping from the couch to a lap the table and bed. Teaching our dogs to be calm on cue with the help of some foundation training and “Place” coupled with all the hard work Tyler & Val are putting in will make all the difference. It’s all about #barktrainlove .

What Would Jeff Do? Dog Training Tip of the Day #17
I am a HUGE advocate of spay and neuter, but I am also a HUGE advocate of a families choice.
It is always recommended that when you have an aggressive dog or a high energy dog to have the dog spay/neutered in order to "fix" or "stop" the unwanted behavior. The thing is as a dog trainer that specializes in rehabbing aggression and doing lots of behavior modification, all of the dogs are coming into us already desexed. The surgical procedure of spay/neuter did not stop or fix the behavior that was trying to stop.
So yes, spay/neuter your dogs but if it does not stop (which with all the dogs and people we have worked with or talked to, it wont) do not give up. The power of training and rehab will help you.

Thank you everyone who has supported My Team and I on our journey we call life with dogs! Dogs have always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t trade this career path for any amount of money in the world. Just like @garyvee says, “follow your passion and the money will follow you!” I hope everyone has enjoyed our adventure so far, PLEASE TAG a fellow dog lover below and let’s continue our journey!!! A lot of people ask me about my background, so here’s a brief overview: When I was just 18 years old, I experienced one of the proudest days of my life as I earned the title of “United States Marine!” By 19 yrs old, I was deployed to Iraq 🇮🇶 I learned A LOT on that first deployment, including my love for working dogs. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the opportunity to be a handler, but I got to see them in action often and was amazed by their capabilities! I became close friends with several handlers and started learning everything I could about working dogs. Since that first deployment, I have never looked back!!! I still am learning. I learn everything I can, from anyone I can! With dog training, there really is no “standard.” You have to do what’s best for each individual dog you meet and each trainer/handler will do things slightly different. That is why I have such an open mind when it comes to dog training. You really can learn something from everyone...and there is no one way to do anything. I’ve learned that you can can accomplish the same exact outcome, 5 different ways with 5 different dogs. Keep an open mind and consider new things - I believe this is part of the reason I am successful. I’ve picked up so many new options because I have learned to look at training from every angle.

Often times I get asked, what makes YOU different? What do YOU have that’s so unique? ••
Well I finally was able to put it into words what separates me. When you listen to this clip you will assume I’m painting a picture of a mistreated dog..... this is MY story, but it’s also theirs. ••
That’s my “it” factor, I’ve been down those paths just like the dogs I work with. I can relate so much it hurts. 💘🐾🐶 #upstatecanine#dogtraining#dogsofinstagram#dogsofinsta#wolves#wolf#passion#love
