Dog trainin is way too full of double digit IQ evolutionary throwbacks who only happen to get results because when you treat an animal like shit except when it does what you want, big surprise, it will do what you want.

>>3689428
too bad human training isn't full of them. workplaces are way too full of retards who want "sick leave" and "shorter shifts" and "more breaks" and "being allowed to use the bathroom" and productivity is suffering while product prices go up, and the chinese who treat people like dogs out compete us.

you pussies are too smart and empathetic for your own good. dogs are meant to be treated like shit. so are poor people. if you don't want to be treated like shit, get rich. or go be a pussy and get steamrolled by people who aren't hysterical bleeding hearts (china).

Stop doing this, people. Wolves form "alpha pairs" of mutual respect and they are always male/female. Their only other bond is parent/child, but dogs don't form this one. They lost it through domestication and no longer form familial packs, only mated pairs and their pairs are easier to break up than wolves. Dogs can not be gay. Everything you do as a pet owner is COURTSHIP BEHAVIOR to the dog, and they can smell your gender because all mammals have similar pheromones that humans are mostly ignorant of because we barely smell them. Male dogs are only confused by their male owners which is why they are known as being more rowdy, because they don't naturally respect their male owners.

Always get a dog of the opposite sex. If you are a man, only a female dog can actually love and respect you. You must also keep them intact to reap the full benefit of this relationship. Without their natural hormone levels they'll remain confused and child-like. An intact dog is a better dog.

Because retards think dogs are people and have the mental faculties to realize that furniture is a social status thing, ala "dad's chair" and "dad's spot on the couch". Yes. They literally think their dogs are children and need to be taught about dad's chair. Their dogs are substitute children.

It's a mental thing, if you allow your dog on your furniture and bed then your dog will think it's equal to you and won't respect you anymore.
>>
>>3693516
Besides demonstrating a lack of discipline it is dirty. Dogs are dirty. They get dirt and hair and who knows what else everywhere they go.
My dad allows his dog to do whatever it wants and his couch is disgusting. Actually his whole house is filthy. You can tell the dogs favorite spot because it's a nasty dark spot on the tan couch.
>>
>>3693747
Why wouldn't he respect his equals? You fear those above you and despise does beneath, respect is for those who stand beside you.
>>

Please refer to >>3694086 , >>3693880 , >>3693747

>They feed their dog kibble
You should feed your dog raw meat. Dog kibble is a synthetic man-made food.

>They train their dog with food
Training your dog with food conditions your dog to get excited around food. It's an absololutely terrible thing to do.
>>
>>3695248
yeah please refer to patently wrong bullshit. thanks gramps. you gonna throw a bible at me too and try and justify hitting/shocking them? you're a boomer regurgitating discredited nonsense from the 60s. just don't feed your dog at all so they don't get excited around food, lol. i only nourish my dogs with IV nutrient drips.

>meanwhile, every credible modern dog trainer
>it's a fucking dog
>they do a trick, you give them a treat, 10 repetitions later you don't need the treat
>>
>>3695248
Dogs do NOT think they are equals for sitting on the couch. Literally only human beings think furniture is a status thing. Kings have thrones, dad has the head of the table and his special chair, etc. It's the misapplication of how humans think to dogs and only weird old men still endorse it. Just because you trained the dog not to go up there, doesn't mean they think anything of it besides "if i go up there they yell at me". Dogs on furniture is more of a "how often do you want to vacuum the hair up" question.
>>
>>3695258
the same weird old men turn right around and make out with their dogs >>3695100
>>
>>3695226
The dog cleans their own anus... that's why it's fine if the dog sits on the couch, but not fine if they lick your face. Get your priorities straight.

Now, if dogs licked their fur like cats, they would be outdoor only pets. Lick butt -> lick fur -> fur is smeared in a fine layer of shit. Thankfully they only lick their butts.
>>
>>3689200
So basically if you have a dog you're a bad owner
>>
>>3695257
There's a fucking difference between meal time and training time. If your dog is hungry then feed them, but if you're training your dog then there is absolutely no need for food. You can give positive reinforcement to your dog by patting them or through verbal cues. There is literally no reason to train them with food retard.
>>
>>3695263
Yes. The majority (99%) of dog owners are fucking stupid and shouldn't have dogs.
>>
>>3695268
the dog does not know the difference. food has been used to successfully and effectively train dogs for ages. they already get excited by food by default, that's how dogs are. you can even use food to train them not to eat, they are that stupid.
>>
>>3695280
>They already get excited by food by default
Found the shit dog owner. My dogs literally will not move an inch in the presence of food that isn't for them. That's because they're not trained by food
>>
>>3689200
>Dog barks and/or howls when they aren't home
Most obvious sign I can think of.
>>
>>3689439
This is the most bizarre post I've seen about dog behavior. Why would a dog be doing courtship behavior to a human? Do you think your dog wants to fuck every mammal that's the opposite sex?

The best part is how wrong this post is about dog relationships. Dogs are polysexual; they don't form mating pairs like wolves do. They bond with humans because we've spent 10,000 years domesticating them to do so, not because they're trying to have sex with us.
>>
>>3695285
You can actually train a dog using food to leave food it's not supposed to take, believe it or not.
>>
>>3695248
Why is it bad for your dog to get excited about food? Do you also not let them get excited about toys, walks, petting or other dogs?
>>
>lets off-leash dog with zero recall run up to strange dogs or people
>"he's friendly!" when told to leash dog
>>
>>3695268
Yeah, unless your dog hates pets and doesn't give a shit about verbal praise. That might work for your german shepherd but it's not going to do shit for plenty of other breeds.
>>
>>3695373
>Do you also not let them get excited about toys, walks, petting or other dogs?
Yes, excitement and energy is only used during our daily training sessions and in private uses. In public excitement only leads to trouble for dogs.

>>
>>3695364
>Do you think your dog wants to fuck every mammal that's the opposite sex?
they do. see literally any untrained intact male. if it smells vaguely feminine they will try to fuck it. and unspayed females show interest in human men and limited courtship behavior. i really dont think "you just know" would be so common if the dogs weren't into it or else they would all be fearful, abused dogs instead of unusually happy

>>3695543
anyone who lives near negroes like you is asking for it anyways.
>>
>>3695386
I think I’m confused about what you mean by excitement. I train my dog with food, and she is eager to do the commands for the food I give her. Why is that bad?
>>
>>3695547
he overthinks things, mixes them with "common sense" (baseless assumptions) and comes to incorrect conclusions that only make sense in his head
>>
Any time someone says they're in favor of training with pure emotional reinforcement i get the same vibe i get off guys with intact female malamutes
>>
>>3695547
The dog will develop a habit where it associates food with excitement. When ever it sees ypur dumbass food it will go apeshit. Without food you train based on discpline. Why use food when ypu can use literally any other positive reinforcement? See: https://youtu.be/SbhiiIclyeQ
>>
>>3695565
I don’t think you’ve met any dogs trained with food because I’ve never seen this behavior you’re talking about.
>>
>>3695552
Dude yeah, or people who want wolf hybrid dogs.
>>
>>3695565
I agree that a ton of other stuff can be used as positive reinforcement but I really don’t understand the aversiveness to using food.
>>
>>3695575
Well yeah, it's literally the only way you can train a wolf because wolves see you as another wolf. Dogs are actually able to see you as a human. You do not train a wolf as much as you befriend it and marry it.
>>
no-food works. i had a friend with a dog who fucking hated me. i mean she was vicious and tried to kill me, and he was thinking of putting her down because of it since having me feed it didn't work at all. so i asked him to tire the dog way the fuck out and then let me walk it. so he gave the dog a jog and then handed me the leash and fucked off to play vidya. i jogged back to my house a mile away amazed the dog wasn't trying to kill me on the way there. when i got home and got the dog inside, it was pretty snappy but too tired to do shit. that's when i put the plan into action. i let it fuck off to sleep, and when it dozed off about 20 minutes later i spooned up behind and it started gently working my hands down her sides and towards her belly. she woke up and started growling but didn't have the energy to do anything except half-assedly try to nip at my hand but i think at this point it was feeling too god for her to be mad. or the spooning totally dominated her. eventually i got all the way down and started hitting... spots and once that happened she shifted gears and looked like the most placid, satisfied dog on earth. and then, she started reacting, shifting around, tail wagging, rolling all the way over. i stopped after about ten minutes and when she looked at me, it was the first time she didn't look like she wanted to kill me. i called her up, put the leash back on, and jogged back to his place.

i told him running with me must have made her respect me and ever since then she's liked me more than him. i guess i saved her life, but, he can never know.

Literally nothing will happen, it's just not that fags way so he thinks bad things will magically happen since he must be right. Dog training is full of 4chan tier autists who operate on overthought conjecture that's just grounded enough to sound like it might make sense, but there are massive gaps in their data and reasoning so most of what they say is wrong and if it works, it does by coincidence, by a mechanism other than the one they stated was being exploited.

This is true to an extent but isn't the on-off rule you think it is. When I was young I had a male dog that was jointly raised by my mother and I. He sooked to her more often but when his wants were at odds with ours, like when he didn't want to come inside after a walk, he would only obey me. He didn't respect my mother.

Sounds like you failed as a dog owner, buddy.

My dog sleeps with me, including on the couch, so their need for close companionship is satisfied and they are perfectly calm when interacting with other people. A dog that can't safely interact with strangers is a liability.
