Education - right behaving

Many people are confused about the concept of training and education and consider them as synonymous. It is a deep mistake. I can have a dog very well trained but not behaved, and the other way around, I have a well-behaved dog, but not trained. Here is an example:


The dog is great trained, consists test of obedience, but outside the training center, can not exist in a society, is incompatible with other animals, people ...


On the other hand, the dog is a great companion to people, has no problem with the surroundings, it does not care about travel, patting of strangers, likes to go to busy places, but does not know the exact training commands. He knows sit, lie down, obey, but no tests of the training could be completed.


The second option is the frequent case of  wolfdogs. Wolfdogs are not great hard-working dogs as shepherds. But you can raise them to a level, that they will work almost seamlessly. I am writing almost seamlessly, because some problems with the wolfdog always has been and probably will be.


Before you decide to take your new dog, the wolfdog, you need to familiarize, socialize them with  negative site and how they actually work, and how is the training of this breed. Forget all training center methods, drills and heavy-handed techniques. It will cause more harm than good.


The basis for the wolfdog is the socialization  from an early age to adulthood and basically never ends. Wolfdog must know exactly where  his position is in your pack - the family. It has its moods and whims, problem behaviors such as hunting, being shy or dominant.


A wolfdog cant just be left alone in the garden.  He needs to travel with you, teach him how to ride the car, the bus etc. If only we can teach him how to drive a car, then do so. :-).


Finally, I included a theme here - walking the the dog, because people often ask me, how much the dog should be walked per day, to be happy, because I have my dog also in my apartment.
