More training videos by Gary Jackson

Sometime ago, Daddy found these dog training videos on YouTube. Mummy and Daddy tried to train me by applying the techniques in the video, but to no avail. You see, they are really not that good. And they are lazy too. That is why they need to fork out money so that THEY can be trained by a dog trainer on how to handle me.

For those of you who are not like my Mummy and Daddy and are smart, and hardworking enough, to save yourself some money - here's the dog training videos featuring the Australian dog trainer, Gary Jackson. You may be able to pick up the tips and train your furry friends yourself. And for the money you saved on professional dog training, you can spend them on yummy treats for your doggies!

Hi ChowChow,

Thanks for sharing this - we've just watched the first 2 videos and they're really interesting! My human, Hsin-Yi, works with a dog trainer from time to time and also teaches some dog training classes, so she will be watching all the videos with great interest! It is always good to watch other trainers.

She uses similar methods to him - and I can tell you, it certainly worked on me! :-) But I think it is hard to learn it just from watching a video, even one which is as clear as this one - it really helps to have an experienced trainer watch you and guide you in real life, so you know where you're going wrong. There is a certain knack to snapping the check chain so that it gives the right kind of correction and doesn't choke the dog.

Of course, there are lots of different ways of training - some other people don't believe in using the check chain and only want to use food rewards and praise to train. My human uses mainly treats and praise but she also believes that corrections and discipline are necessary from time to time, especially in the beginning when us dogs are still learning what is worth doing and what behaviours are not worth repeating!

Good luck in your training class - can't wait to hear all about it!!

Hey ChowChow,

Can I ask you a question? My humans are stopping over in Singapore on their way to see their families in Dubai & London over Christmas and New Year - and they were wondering if there are any big pet stores in Singapore that they could visit?

They tried looking online but couldn't find anything - and they thought maybe you would know?
Shopping in Singapore is usually so much better than other places (especially end-of-the-world Auckland!) so they thought if there was a big pet shop, they might find some cool things there.
