  1. Loving the series! For your next series would you consider real world training a dog that is not socialized or slightly fearful? I feel like a lot of dogs in the shelter may be in this mental state due to various circumstances. George has been great and seems like a confident guy 😍

    1. The German shepherd in his last series was like that. Reactive dogs are a royal pain to train and vary a lot in the timeline they recover. I’ve fostered a few of these. One calmed down in two days and started seeking the company of more confident dogs. My son has a bull terrier now with a history of fighting with other dogs that has taken 6 months to be able to just take him on a walk without him barking and lunging at other dogs. Training is just a lot of boring repetition in reducing the working distance from distractions.

  2. I’m over here loving that he talks about pull strength. *looks at my 95 pound Newfoundland* Thankfully.. my boy is gotten older.. he went through the phase of not listening after I had worked and trained him. Lords is he people friendly though. I’m glad I’m in good health or I’d be dragged across the yard.. Great dog. But stubborn as a horse and strong as one too.

    1. I actually was just thinking if there would be a recommended weight/strength level for a potential owner of pitbulls. My daughter wants one and she is 100lbs.

    2. @mljudd123 breed is irrelevant, strength is sorta important, earning the dog’s respect and having an energy level matching the dog is most important. My dog weighs 104. I’m a fit 120. If your daughter strength trains regularly has enough energy to put 3-5 miles per day on herself + dog, don’t worry about her size. If she’s the type who hates to sweat, it won’t work. A tired dog is a well-behaved dog. A well-trained dog is valuable deterrent to thugs – I can go for a run at night in the park with my dog and nobody tries to mess with me.

  3. These videos are so useful. We habe had our rescue for 11 months now. He’s a dream in quiet locations. Add distraftion and it still gets hard, slowly better. Add traffic and he is in full panic mode still :-(. Little steps! Depending where people meet us they say he’s incredible or a nightmare.😅

  4. My wife and I are very happy with our 6-month-old puppy’s progress so far—and we owe it all to you and your team. Thank you for all the hard work you put into these amazing videos 🙏

    Dogs all around the world are so lucky to be trained by your spirit and energy. I hope you never stop doing what you do 👍

    1. @justicefosho I don’t think it’s a thing. Mine just likes to watch other dogs. So she watches the vids. I’m curious if she is learning while she watches 🤷🏼‍♂️

  5. Question: You live in an area that is no stranger to Storms, how is George with the booming of thunder (if he’s had that experience yet) ?

    1. Play loud enough lofi, something to cover most of it. We bored mil’s dog who’s terrified of fireworks/storms and he didn’t even notice

  6. He’s a great dog👍Really smart. You feel the pressure is on him to be spot on because he’s a breed of dog that doesn’t have the best reputation.

  7. I didn’t realize that you don’t have a separate dog training business! I know you make a living from YouTube and books but still…you have a heart of gold! 🥰 🥳💖

  8. I’ve implemented your training methods with our 10 month old standard poodle, Argus, and he is an absolute dream. No accidents, no unnecessary barking, great recall, walks at a heal for miles at a time, and his groomer recent commented that she has NEVER met a more well-behaved dog. Prior to watching your videos, I knew nothing about dogs. To be honest, I had only been around poorly-behaved dogs, and I wasn’t even sure I liked dogs. (We finally caved and decided to get a dog after years of tears and begging from my puppy-obsessed son ) Argus has stolen all our hearts, and I am so incredibly thankful for you. Your work makes such an important difference not only in the lives of our beloved pets, but also in the lives of so many families. Thank you!!!

    1. Getting a puppy as a child is the greatest gift. I just lost my childhood pup after 14 years being best friends. It’s the greatest love I’ve ever had. Dogs are truly amazing when you connect with them ❤️
