    Dumb Stuff I Saw Online

    58:30

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: Being suspect of always or never statements in training.  The art of prey guarding.  Laying your own tracks.  The downsides to canine demos.    Key Takeaways: By saying you never do defense work with puppies, you erase an entire section of training 2457 On any given track, you will have a combination of human odor and ground disturbance. How much of each will be different depending on the type of track.  There can be benefits to laying your own tracks, including the ability to lay more tracks than you might be able to otherwise.  You can never predict other people’s behavior - if you are doing a demo, you want to treat your dog like any other piece of equipment like your gun or your car.    "Back when I was an academic, we used to tell students, if you see in a question ‘always’ or ‘never’ be suspect of what's being said, because there are usually exceptions to rules. And especially in dog training, there's usually some exceptions." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Email: JBradshaw@TarheelCanine.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine Calendly: https://calendly.com/tarheelcanine    Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train Hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

    PSA Trial Rituals

    56:54

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: What is involved in getting on the field and having a great performance.  Creating the right mindset from a young age in your dog.  Reading the important moments happening all the time.  Mirroring your training ritual in your trial ritual.    Key Takeaways: Expose your dog to new environments with new attractions and continue to practice your rituals.  You can get additional time on field by utilizing long downs.  Experiment with what works for you and your dog. Each dog is individual and different in what works for them.  You’re not there to trick your dog into compliance, you’re there to train your dog into giving the desired behaviors under levels of stress and distraction.   "What you do in your training has got to be mirrored in what you do on the trial field.  You can’t change it at the last minute and think that’s going to be better." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Email: JBradshaw@TarheelCanine.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine Calendly: https://calendly.com/tarheelcanine    Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train Hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

    Diagnosing Failed K9 Engagements

    1:18:20

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: The key to creating a street ready dog with the highest probability of making an engagement.  Equipment orientation and odor discrimination.  Discrimination drills to show there is no value to the training equipment for the dog.  Bridging from training to civil encounters to lead to engagement success.   Key Takeaways: Visually, we need to make sure the dog can show aggression to the human form without the equipment, such as a bite suit or sleeve.  Train a civil picture - the dog needs to learn what he is supposed to do without all of the training equipment around.  Do training around dead equipment - make that equipment mean nothing to the dog.  Teach the dog there are ninjas everywhere - there could be a threat around every corner.    "We have to look at diagnosing these types of problems -  I really think they boil down to discrimination issues. We have to be careful when thinking about what we're presenting to the dog, visually and also what the odor profile of the pictures are that we're presenting to the dog." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Email: JBradshaw@TarheelCanine.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine   Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train Hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

Just focus on what you’re doing and what your dog is doing. Dog training is a journey that you and your dog are going through together.  Do at least one thing every day with your dog.    "When somebody is giving you information, don’t be distracted by other people. Focus on your dog." —  Briella   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Email: JBradshaw@TarheelCanine.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine   Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

    Pet Training Paradigms

    1:14:28

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: The drive model of canine behavior.  Choosing your paradigm of how you look at any particular dog.  The clarity of boundaries, the expression of drive, and balancing reward and compulsion. Understanding how paradigm and training fit together.    Key Takeaways: The way in which you see dogs define your paradigm.  You can apply working dog training paradigms to training pet dogs if you understand the paradigm. Drive neutrality is like marathon training. It won’t happen overnight. Systematic drive capping training will help lead to drive neutrality.  When dealing with reactive dogs, obedience buys you threshold.   "Obedience can create a state where trust is absolute. If we can create the state in obedience, that's comfortable and relaxed, then we can use the obedience to help generalize the safety around other stimuli that oftentimes will elicit those threats." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Email: JBradshaw@TarheelCanine.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine   Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train Hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

    The Emotional Canine

    1:17:40

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: The blue ribbon emotions and how they show in canines.  Managing frustration in training.  Recognizing human interpretation of intentionality in relation to canine behaviors. The physical, mental, and emotional health of dogs.    Key Takeaways: Dogs have brain structures that produce emotions. In other words, those brain structures are similar to the emotion-producing brain structures in humans. In both children and in puppies, rough and tumble play is vitally important to learning social skills, boundaries, and limits.  Human beings are going to have a wider, richer, deeper range of emotions than pets. We cannot attribute human intention to a dog’s behavior. The simplest answer is usually the correct one when looking at canine behavior.  As trainers and pet owners, we need to examine the net stress of the dog overall and ask ourselves if we are hitting all of the important parts of that dog's life.   "At the end of the day, we have to understand that dogs are emotional beings, they want to be forward-looking." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Resources:  Panksepp, Jaak (1998).  Affective Neuroscience.

    Defense Training Basics - Avoiding Avoidance

    1:10:58

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: The importance of working dogs in defense, without creating avoidance.  Pre-avoidance behaviors and how to read and manage them.  The role of a skilled decoy in defense training basics.  Understanding the dog is going to do what it has been trained to do. Addressing strengths in a puppy and working in those strong drives.   Key Takeaways: When you’re working with a dog, you have to adjust your behavior, in real-time, to avoid creating an avoidance situation.  You have to change your attitude immediately if your dog doesn’t engage. Take him out of the situation and do everything you can to avoid creating the phobia of the situation.  In PSA, if your dog is not confident working in defense, you will see it in the carjacking scenario or on the handler attack.  Reward is a very powerful thing if you're going to pressure your dog. It will teach him how to handle stress from you; it's going to teach him how to handle stress generally.   "If you don't work the defensive side of the dog, you may encounter one day or a suspect puts your dog in defense and your dog doesn't know how to handle the situation. Better to tackle it before it happens and understand how to do it." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine Calendly: calendly.com/tarheelcanine   Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train Hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

    Navigating Fears and Phobias in Working Dogs

    1:35:35

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: Timing the puppy training early and with directed purpose and handling the fear periods in dogs.   Habituation, spontaneous recovery, sensitization, and learned irrelevance.   When to reorient and when to address fears.  Understanding your dog’s phobias to learn how to solve the problem.  Common fears and phobias seen in police and sport dogs.     Key Takeaways: Too many people restrict social and experiential learning in puppies during the critical stages of development out of fear.  As a decoy, as a handler, as anyone working with a young dog, you need to be attentive to what you’re doing and always be surveying your environment to avoid unintended consequences.  Avoid creating a problem that doesn’t already exist. Take a systematic approach to expose your dog to everything they need to be exposed to.  Generally, fear periods are short-lived. Take your dog into more familiar places, more natural spaces, where it’s not going to encounter a lot of things that are going to be super unusual or might provoke a fearful response.   "I have a phobia about creating phobias. I don't want to create a phobia in my dog, because the road is going to be super long to try and systematically desensitize to any type of stimuli that's been created as an avoidance response." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Book Reference:  The Decoy Book by William Garrido - amazon.com/Decoy-Book-Collaborations-Some-Industry/dp/B08T6YGWSD Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training by Stephen R.

    Fixing Grip Issues in Sport and Police Dogs

    1:07:41

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: How the grip can vary depending on the sport you’re training for.  What it means to have a bad grip and why different ways bad grip may manifest. Teaching your dog to be unsatisfied with any bite that is not at the back of the mouth.  Teaching the basic fundamentals from a young age, including social interaction and teaching the dog to work with other trainers.  Taking the proper time through progressions and not pushing too hard too fast.    Key Takeaways: A firm grip is more important than a calm grip. We want the dog to default to a full grip, all the way back to the back teeth.   Genetics provides a capacity, but the training can enhance or ruin what the genetics are bringing to the table.  Give your dog something challenging to bite. A lot of busy grips come from a failure to challenge the grip and give the dog something they can bite successfully.  Challenging the grip is one of the most important things you can do as you go through your training progressions.    "The firmness, the fullness, the hardness, those are the things that really determine the grip." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Contact Jerry: Website: controlledaggressionpodcast.com Tarheel Canine Training:  www.tarheelcanine.com Youtube:  tarheelcanine Twitter: @tarheelcanine Instagram: @tarheelk9 Facebook: TarheelCanineTraining Protection Sports Website: psak9-as.org Patreon:   patreon.com/controlledaggression Slideshare: Tarheel Canine   Sponsors:  ALM K9 Equipment: almk9equipment.com PSA & American Schutzhund: psak9-as.org Tarheel Canine: tarheelcanine.com     Train Hard, train smart, be safe.     Show notes by Podcastologist Chelsea Taylor-Sturkie   Audio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

    Becoming a Better K9 Entrepreneur

    1:37:14

    In this episode, Jerry Bradshaw discusses: The power of just showing up and investing in the outcome with a manageable solution strategy. Book references for being a better K9 entrepreneur.  What it means to be effective in your life and business.  Planning for the future and investing in yourself and diversifying your business.  Reflecting on life and doing the best that we can with our decisions.    Key Takeaways: Do a little something every single day towards your goal and watch that success breed upon itself.  You are not a victim and at the mercy of the society in which you live. You are capable of high achievement if you are proactive, and not reactive.  Listen to understand. It is okay for you to be quiet and not just be waiting to make your point.  Pay attention to what you are doing with your money and assets. Is it working for you or is it working against you?  Take calculated risks and be willing to fail then learn from that failure.  If you don’t take any risks, you will never succeed.    "I don't understand why anybody who's in the dog training space, doesn't do competition. Some of the best trainers that I know are in competitions. Because it teaches you how to bounce back from failures, it teaches you that sometimes you have to find five different ways to try and get your dog to do something, until you find the one way that really sticks." —  Jerry Bradshaw   Get Jerry's book Controlled Aggression on Amazon.com   Book References: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Steven R.
