So when you get a new puppy or you get a dog that is not used to wearing a collar or a leash, the easiest way to get your dog or the puppy is you clip the leash to the collar and allow the dog to just walk around with the collar dragging behind them.

They may get frightened by it at first because it’s like, “What is this following me?”. But if you allow the dog to walk around with the leash dragging behind them for about a day to a day and a half, then you pick up the leash and you start walking and just get excited and get them excited so they don’t see the leashes as a negative.

It’s extremely important that they see the leashes as a good thing. You want them to absolutely love the walk. So as soon as they see the leash, it’s like, “Yes, we’re going for a walk. Oh my gosh, I can’t wait.” 

So allow them to drive the leash behind them for a day to a day and a half picking it up. You can get a squeaky toy and get them all excited to start walking. So the leash is your tool again. And it’s a positive. Nothing but positive with the leashes. So I’ll see you soon. Bye.

Within this video, you’re gonna learn how to teach the dog, “drop it” and “leave it.”

Okay, so he’s pulling on the leash now, you don’t want to pull.

You don’t want to pull on the leash because if you pull, then he’s going to start pulling even more because it’s like a tug of war, okay?

So you get down to his level and maybe not. So from here, you put your elbows into your ribs so you’re not pulling and all you’re doing is repeating, “Drop it, drop it, drop it.”  Once they know the drop command, then you can say NO in between. But he doesn’t know “Drop it” yet, so from here, “Drop it.”

“Leave it.” So, “Drop it” and “Leave it” as soon as he drops it, Nope. Leave it. Nope. Drop it. Leave it. Nope. Leave it. Nope, leave it. So let’s ‘drop it’ out of the mouth. ‘Leave it’ alone.

If he really had something in his mouth that he’s not supposed to have – Drop it. Leave it. Nope, leave it. Leave it. Good boy.

If he has something in his mouth that he’s really not supposed to have, that’s when you pull your elbows into your chest and hold on to it. Drop it, drop it, drop it. As soon as he drops it out of his mouth or her mouth. Leave it, leave it alone.

So you’re practicing that until they understand ‘Drop it’ to the point where they actually like, spit it out of their mouth. Okay, so ‘Drop it.’

And then once they know the command and they’re understanding it, that’s when you can get

the ‘No’ in there. Drop it. No. Drop it. No. Drop it. Once they drop it, leave it.

And then if they go after the item again, then “No, leave it.”

Suddenly they back away, so drop it and leave it.

It’s extremely important, especially when you’re walking on the street and they’re stuck all over the place. So, it’s great.

Thank you very much.

See you soon.

Hello, everyone. The Dog Mystic here, Cheri A.Marquez, and welcome to the Dog Mystic Show.

So every single day I’m going to be going live, and it’s going to be at 1:11. I had a little bit of technical difficulties, but I’m here. So the Dog Mystic Show is going to give you dog training tips, problem-solving techniques, what’s healthy for your dog, and what’s not healthy for your dog, and Dog Mystic exercises to bring peace to the home and build a deeper connection with your dog on the soul level.

I am so glad that you are here. Thank you very much. Today is all about tone inflections.

Dogs learn from tone inflections. There are three different kinds of tone inflections. You have your commands, which are short and firm. If you draw it out and you’re just asking, commanding them, “Sit, please“, and they’re looking at you like, “yeah, right, whatever“. Because you got to remember, a dog’s mind and a child’s mind are almost exactly the same. So if they know that they can get away with something, they’re going to push it for everything that they can. So your commands have to be short and firm. 

And then your second tone inflection is the NO, which is also short and firm. No.

And then you have the praise, which is, “yay, good job!”. They don’t learn sentences. They learn one and two-word commands. We can teach them hundreds of one and two-word commands, but it’s important not to talk to them. When you’re training with them, there’s no talking or begging. So another thing is never to give up on any commands that you’re giving them to do. If you know that the dog knows the command and they are being stubborn, never give up. Because they don’t know minutes, they just know a timeframe. So if you give up one time, then they know that they’re more patient, they’ll wait for a little bit longer, and then you’ll give up. So don’t give up. I don’t care how stubborn they are being. I have, let’s see, the longest time that I have worked on the sick command with one dog is over 40 minutes. No. 

Now, another thing with the commands and your tone inflections is: for some commands, the sit command, you don’t want to repeat it, because if you keep on repeating it over and over again, then again you’re asking the dog to do it instead of commanding the dog to do it. So you get the no in-between with the leash. So it’s sit. Give it 3 seconds. One, two, three. The dog doesn’t do it, you slightly pull back on the leash.No, sit. As soon as the dog sits, stay, sit, stay.

Just a reminder, if you repeat sit, sit, then you’re asking instead of commanding them to do it. So please, when you are starting out with training, you have to remember this. It is so important your dog will take advantage. And if they know they can win, then aggression can start because they know they can get away with it. So I’m going to have some information on there and if you would like to check out my Green online course in regards to some puppy problems or dog problems that you may be having, please take a look. I will leave the link and it is free. Thank you so much. Have a wonderful day and see you tomorrow.


The Leash Is Your Tool

In this video, you are going to learn the importance of the leash. The leash is your tool.

Think of it like this, if the leash is off, then the dog knows it can do whatever they want. You’re in control when the leash is on, okay? 

For the training, it’s extremely important. I have a six-foot leash, the six-foot is better than the four-foot leash. At the training, you have control. You have control of what you’re doing and what you want the dog to do. Whatever you’re thinking and feeling goes through you, through the leash, and to the dogs.

Dogs have a sixth sense, they know exactly what’s going on, and they can feel your energy in one split second. For example, if as soon as you open up your front door [for someone], if that person is not a good person, that dog knows whether that person is good or bad.

If the person is 10 to 20 feet away, then they know.  They just have that sixth sense, which is absolutely amazing.

With the leash, as long as you have calm energy when you’re holding on to the leash and you’re not tight and like totally freak out.. because of whatever situation is that’s going on, then your dog is going to be calm because they can feel your energy.. so you are in control.

It sounds funny but the leash can also be used for housebreaking a puppy, so that puppy is not peeing and pooping all over your house, then keeping the dog on a watch on the leash inside the house. They can’t go and sneak off and have an accident or chew on something, then you’re in control.

The leash is extremely important. It is not a bad thing, don’t see it as a negative because YOU are creating that bond with your dog. They don’t mind being with you and you’re saving your things in your house and not having to clean up the messes. So the leash is your tool. Thank you very much. See you soon!

A Collar or Harness, Which Is Better

Within this video, you’re gonna find out whether to use a harness or to use a collar. Just like the leashes, there are so many choices out there. Which one do you use? Every dog trainer has their preference, but personally, I don’t like to use the harness. First off, it’s hard to get it on and your dog is wiggling all over the place. You have to try and get it on and wrestle with the dog to get it on, and it’s kind of annoying. So that’s one reason, I don’t like harnesses. But also think of a sled dog. When they’re pulling on the sled, as soon as they feel that pull against their chest, it gives them that dominance, like “Yeah, I’m big and bad, haha.”, you know, and they start pulling even more. So it doesn’t matter what size your dog is, it could be a small little chihuahua, or Maltese, that two pounds. As soon as they feel the pull against their chest, then they’re going to start pulling even more. It’s like the Napoleon Complex, like, “Yeah! Big, bad. Haha! We’re just going to keep on pulling.”

I don’t like the halter but just the collars are great because it’s not going to hurt their trachea, not inhumane or unsafe. So just make sure when you’re choosing the collar– if it’s a bigger dog, you want a thicker collar than this. Because if it gets too loose, and it’s not around the neck here and it goes to here, where like Adam’s apple is, right there then they’ll start coughing. And the problem with that is then you’re thinking that you’re hurting the dog’s trachea and it’s not true. You have more control with the collar than you do with the halter. So you’re not moving the body around, you’re actually moving the head where you want the dog to be, okay?

This is for a tiny little, dog or a tiny puppy. The thicker the nylon leashes/collar is, the better because the thicker that it is, then it’s not going to get loose and it’s not going to move. As long as you can get your fingers underneath the collar then it’s not too tight. You don’t want it too loose because it can slip over the head. Once the dog knows that they can slip the collar off of their head then they’re going to try and do it as many times as possible, and they’re extremely smart. If they know they can get away with something, they’re going to push it for everything that they can no matter what.

For a thicker collar, making sure that it’s not too tight but not too loose is extremely important. And the class on this is you don’t want to get a flimsy plastic clasp you want to make sure that it buckles on nice and tight. There are so many different brands out there, but the coastal collars are really good because it either has a plastic clasp that works very well or they actually have like a metal clasp.

Metal clasps are great because you know for a fact that it’s not sliding off. The problem with plastic is sometimes it can wear and tear. And with puppies biting and biting and biting on the plastic then it can slide off. So a metal clasp is better than plastic. And the thicker the collar is the better. And of course, you can do nylon or you can do leather. So it’s your preference and there are so many different collars and designs and everything. So that is my preference for collars better than a halter. Thank you very much and I’ll see you soon.


Is Garlic Safe For Dogs?

Garlic contains compounds that can cause anemia if ingested in extra large amounts. Anything that is in excess is not good for the body, whether it is a human or an animal

Small amounts of garlic per body weight is good for the dogs. It actually helps with fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks. It’s supposedly gives the bugs a nasty taste to deter them.

Garlic also builds the immune system. It detoxifies the liver, helps fight infections, and is good for cardiovascular health.

Do You Think Obesity Is At An All Time High With Our Pets?

Unfortunately obesity is it at all time high for people but it’s also affecting our pets.

Our pets do not live as long as we do so let’s start feeding them nutritious food, stop feeding them people food because the seasoning and sodium is not good for their body, and they need exercise just like we do.

No matter what, if we are eating the same thing every single day of course we’re going to get bored so you have to add some nutritious things to the food just too give more flavor.

You can add: chicken, vegetable, beef, or bone broth, 100% canned pumpkin, sweet potatoes, or any vegetables they like.

Please take a look at the ingredients in the bag of food that you are feeding your dog. If the first ingredients are corn and a meat by product, IT IS NOT HEALTHY! If you feed your dog Pedigree, it is like feeding your dog McDonald’s every single day.

Just remember that exercise and dog training is mental and physical stimulation for your dog. It keeps us all healthy and creates a lasting bond with your dog!

Why Are Grapes & Raisins Toxic To Dogs?

Has a grape ever fallen on the floor and you rush to pick it up so your dog does not get it before you?

I know I have. I always wondered why grapes are so dangerous to dogs. Well, the ASPCA Poison Control Center discovered why grapes and raisins are toxic.

The Tartaric Acid in grapes cause: *Vomiting *Diarrhea *Excessive Thirst *Kidney Damage or Failure. Unfortunately, even one grape/raisin toxicity can even be fatal.

You can induce vomiting by using a baby medicine syringe and squeeze a small amount of hydrogen peroxide in the dogs mouth. Keep the dogs face straight and DO NOT LIFT THE DOG’S HEAD TO THE SKY BECAUSE THEY CAN CHOKE! Close the mouth and rub the throat so the dog automatically swallows the peroxide. Once they throw up then take them to the vet if you notice any symptoms!

Please pick up a grape as soon as it falls so the dogs don’t eat it. Be aware and remember Watch or Confine!


Why Is Xylitol Dangerous For Dogs?

Xylitol causes the dog’s pancreas to raise the insulin in the body to unsafe levels.

The glucose goes to the muscle and fat cells and leaves all the other organs totally drained. The sugar is needed for the brain to function properly and without it the brain cells start dying, which can KILL your dog! Wow that is scary! Especially for small dogs, they will be affected quicker then larger dogs.

When a dog has low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), the dogs go into shock first. They stand in one spot and are off balance, then they become limp and go into a seizure.

Put some honey on your finger and rub it in their mouth and on the tongue to stabilize the body and gives you time to rush to the vet!!

Please read the ingredients before giving your dog peanut butter and any other human snacks.
