    Dog training - Don Sullivan?

    Has anyone tried this system to train their dogs and how did it go?

    I am interested in using it and would like to know if anyone has tried it.

    I began to train the Tuckster using his system yesterday........

    Sullivan is an animal trainer that sells a dog training system - its has a 'pinch' collar, leashes of different lengths and two DVDs where he explains how to use his techniques to train a dog.

    ----------------

    I tried to train Tucker by myself and it worked to get him to sit and mind a few other commands.

    I picked up a book where the writer suggested using treats to reward the dog....after a few sessions the dog was more interested in the treats than what I was saying.

    --------

    I saw the commercial for the system and decided to give it a try.

    Tucker isn't a perfect dog, but he's stubborn and likes to bark! I wouldn't mind a few barks, but he goes on and on with the mailman, the UPS trucks and when people walk past the house with other pets.

    I see he can be trained, but was at a loss on how to get him to the point where we can go out and I don't have to worry about him barking, lunging at other dogs.....

    (My main goal? to get him to go to a Bark in the Park event!)

    -------------------------------

    Two days into the first session - walking him without pulling on the leash?

    We started yesterday and before we got back from our .5 mile walk I had him at my side and NOT pulling at the leash. Today?

    He walked most of the way and I only had to correct him a handful of times!

    IF he continues to progress at this rate, he should be able to drive a car in two weeks

    Even tho this the first few days of training, I am looking forward to doing more work with him!

    Any method is better than no training! I am guessing no one bothered to train him before, and as he's a smart boy, just being consistent will be great! Make sure Doris is in on the plan as well if she walks him!

    Update!

    We have been working on walking around the circle and it's improved his 'attention span'.

    It seems that Tuck is a bit more relaxed and not as goofy as he used to be....

    MOre details as the become available.
