on Dog Training
Copyright 2005
I look at people who train dogs and lump them into three main
categories. These categories can be placed on a sliding scale.
The first category, on the left, is the group of people who beg or bribe
their dogs to do something by offering food or toy reward. Don’t get
me wrong, I use food and toys in training, but I also use distractions and
corrections. These people use neither.
The problem with this group is that the dogs often choose not to
do what’s asked because they don’t think the reward is worth the
task. These dogs end up being pushy, dominant and often antisocial
dogs. They are the dogs that are turned in to animal shelters as being
unmanageable when in fact they act the way they do as a result of
ineffective training.
At the other end of the scale, on the right side, is the second category of
people. These are trainers who intimidate or force their dogs to do what
they want. I call them the old school “yank and crank” trainers.
Leerburg® Kennel and Video is owned by Ed Frawley. Ed has owned
German Shepherds (GSD) for 45 years. Since 1978 he has bred over
350 litters of German working bloodline GSD’s. His dogs work in law
enforcement, as S&R dogs, as competition Schutzhund dogs, and as
family companions and protectors.
Since 1980 Ed has produced over 120 dog training videos and DVDs,
more than anyone else in the world. If you go to the Leerburg® web site
you will see that it’s over 10,000 pages. www.leerburg.com
Ed has also spent hours corresponding with customers that were seeking
training advice. If you go to our Leerburg® website you will have hours

They put a choke collar on a dog and force it to do everything. Many
professional dog trainers use these methods because to them time
is money and with enough force a dog can be trained to do about
anything.
The problem with yank and crank trainers is the dogs seldom like their
handlers and in fact are often afraid of them. These are the dogs that
tuck their tails or lay on the ground when asked to do something. When
these dogs are near their owners they don’t look happy because they
never know when the hammer is going to fall.
The problem with both of these categories of trainers is the training
produces inconsistent results and dogs that don’t respect their owners.
If you don’t have a good bond with your dog, or if your dog does
not respect you as a pack leader you will never reach consistency in
training.
The third category of trainers is where I like people to be. These are
the trainers that are in the middle of the two groups. They balance
in the middle but are always prepared to move one way or the other
depending on what’s going on at that point in time.
The third group also uses food, toys, or praise to take a dog through
a learning phase (where the dog actually learns the meaning of a
command – for example “lay down”) but then they add distractions to
the program (i.e. having the dog lay down when someone tosses a ball
in front of the dogs feet). If the dog is disobedient under distraction or
does not follow directions this group teaches a dog that they will be
corrected for being disobedient.

How to Build Leadership and Respect
When asked how to build a bond, gain respect and still maintain a
leadership role with our dogs, the answer is that we must make sure
the dog understands that we will always be fair with him. Dogs think
in terms of black and white. They don’t understand English and for the
most part they don’t reason, they just react.
We teach the dog that we are only going to ask him to do things he
knows how to do. When he does something correctly we always let him
know he is doing the right thing. This is called training with markers.
We never correct our dog for things that he has not been trained to do.
This supports the black and white rule. We don’t correct because “WE
THINK HE KNOWS BETTER.” We only correct because we know, through
training, that he understands a command and then refuses to do it.
The dog must learn that we are 100% consistent in how and when we
administer corrections. Being consistent at all times is one of the most
important parts of being a pack leader. For example, we can’t ignore
aggressive behavior towards guests in our house and then correct the
dog for aggression while on walks.
Corrections must also be administered within 1 ½ seconds of an
infraction, not an hour after he peed on the floor. When I hear people
say “He knows he did something wrong when I was gone,” I shake my
head and feel sorry for the dog.
One of the most important parts of training is for the handler to learn
to administer corrections at a level that produces harmony in the family
pack. This means that the handler must learn when simply saying
“NO” is enough of a correction to let the dog know that he is doing
something wrong VS. learning when a level 10 leash correction with a
prong collar is needed (i.e. showing aggression to a child).
Dogs Can Love You and Not Respect You
I tell people that your dog can love you and not respect you. You cannot
love your dog into respecting you. Love and respect are two unrelated
emotions when referring to a relationship with a dog.
When my dog shows disrespect I increase the pressure I put on the
dog. This means I work the dog harder and control his free time until
he shows me the respect that I demand. A pack leader controls the lives
of pack members.
New dog trainers need to remember that a dog learns through
repetition. It takes 30 repetitions for a dog to learn a new command.
Trainers are often guilty of thinking their dog understands them when
in fact they have not repeated an exercise often enough for a dog to
completely understand that exercise. This results in problems because
the owners start to unjustly correct for something the dog does not
fully understand. This breaks the black and white rule.
Most Trainers are too Passive
With this said, most new trainers are too passive. This is either a result of
their temperament or a result of being exposed to ineffective and poor
dog training techniques. We see this frequently in training classes which
only focus on positive training methods while ignoring distractions and
corrections. (i.e. classes that only use clickers and head halters).
read the article I wrote on my web site about training with markers.
The difference in what I do and what these ineffective obedience
classes do is that once the dog has learned an exercise with markers I
add distractions. I then correct the dog when the distraction becomes
high enough to promote disobedience. This is the only way to get
consistency in training.
On the other end of the scale we find professional dog trainers who
take customer dogs in for training. The vast majority of these trainers
use way to much force in training. I have already said “time is money”
to these people and they can force a dog into submission a lot quicker
than they can take it through a learning phase that uses markers.
Thirty five to forty years ago people trained dogs almost exclusively
with force. Read the old William Kohler books. He was the master
of yank and crank. In recent years the pendulum has swung to the
other end of the spectrum – now it’s clickers and head halters with
no corrections. This is wrong and is playing itself out in the dog world
where we see an explosion of dominance and aggressive problems in
family pets. Once again the correct place is in the middle. The difference
between a good trainer and a great trainer is the great trainer learns the
balance between motivation and correction.
If you study pack behavior or even herd behavior you will see that rank
issues in the pack are often dealt with very passively but disrespect
is dealt with very quickly and aggressively. The same thing needs to
happen in a relationship with a dog.
Respect-Cooperate-Try
I tell people a dog should respect me, cooperate, and try to do what
I ask. If it does that then I can train it. This is not good behavior - it’s
expected behavior. That’s a very important concept in dog training.
Many people own dogs that are disrespectful and behave badly. When
these owners start to train their dogs and the dogs start to mind, the
owners mistakenly think the dog is respecting them. These owners are
often wrong. Respect comes over time and is a result of good leadership
techniques.
People too often act like they are begging their dog to mind them. Go
to any beginner obedience training class and you will see it. The sad
thing is that this attitude in dog training not only produces inconsistent
behavior it produces behavioral problems which often leads to a
dangerous dog.
When owners learn the concepts of a learning phase, a distraction
phase, a correction phase ,and a maintenance phase, they are on the
road to being a pack leader and they have the tools needed to train
their dog.
Getting out and actually working with the dog will give a trainer the
experience needed to learn the levels of praise and correction that are
required to get a dog to do what you want it to do.
Always remember, “most dogs prefer being followers.” Most dogs don’t
want to be a pack leader. When dog owners learn to control the lives
of their dogs they will become the pack leader their dogs want them
to be.
Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with clickers. I train with
markers (rather than a clicker I use my voice and say “OK “). You can

http://leerburg.com/302.htm
This video pertains
to all dogs
This video was produced for DVD with all new material in September of
2004. Our first Basic Dog Obedience video was done in 1982. Since then
it has been redone twice. With every release, it gets better and better.
teach the dog that it must mind no matter where it is or what is going
on around it (i.e. when people come to your house, when other dogs
are around, when on a walk, or when playing with toys).
The purpose of the video is to teach people how to train their own
dog to become a well mannered family pet. The problem with taking
your dog to obedience class is that the dog is expected to learn new
commands under extreme distraction (i.e. when it is surrounded by 10
or 20 other dogs). This is not the correct way to train a dog. In fact, it’s
totally unfair to the dog.
Our video will teach you how to train the basic commands of Sit, Down,
Come, Stay, Heel, and go to your place.
There are three phases to dog training:
1. The Learning Phase
2. The Correction Phase
3. The Proofing Phase
There are 3 concepts in dog training that new trainers must understand
before they begin to work with their dog:
The correct way to train any dog is to teach the new commands in a
distraction free environment, one that it is used to being in (i.e. like your
kitchen or your back yard).
The approach we teach are new commands through positive motivation.
During the learning phase we never correct the dog for not performing
the command. It would be unfair to give a correction during this phase
because the dog does not understand what it is expected to do yet.
Once the dog learns a command but then refuses to do it, it is then time
for the correction phase of training. This is where the dog learns that if it
does not do what it is told to do, it will get a correction. The video shows
how to determine when to give corrections and what level of correction
to give different dogs.
When the dog consistently performs obedience commands at home, it is
ready for the distraction/proofing stage of training. During this stage we

Now you have a basic understanding of why I do not recommend
obedience classes until your dog reaches the distraction phase of its
training. By this point in your dog’s training, obedience classes are fun.
How else could you get 20 friends and their dogs together to help proof
your dog’s obedience commands?
1. How to break a command down into small components that your dog
can understand.
2. How to effectively praise your dog. This video will teach you how
and when to praise. You will learn what happens when you praise too
much or to little.
3. How to administer a proper correction for your dogs temperament.
You also will learn when to correct and just as important when not to
correct your dog. In addition to what to do when you make a mistake
and correct too hard, or what to do when you correct at the wrong
time.
The training concepts in this video are broken down into step by step increments
that even young children can understand. For further information on this

Training article
Pack Structure
Dogs are pack animals, just like wolves are pack animals. They are
predators. Horses and cows, on the other hand, are herd animals and
therefore are prey animals.
Predators live by one set of genetic rules and prey animals live by a
different set of genetic rules.
Pack animals live in family packs which have a pack leader and lower
ranking pack members. Dog packs, like wolf packs, are not a democracy.
A pack is organized in a hierarchy of rank. Simply put, this means every
member of the pack knows exactly what its rank is within the family
pack.
Pack animals genetically understand this concept. This concept is the
reason people have dog fights when they add a new dog to a home
that already has dogs. Everyone has to re-establish the new pack order
when a new pack member comes on board.
The Groundwork
to Becoming
Your Puppy’s
Pack Leader
By Ed Frawley
A year or two ago I wrote an article titled “The Ground Work to Becoming
a Pack Leader.” This article has been well read, but over time it has
become obvious that I should have written two articles; one for adult
dogs; and one for puppies. This article will address the ground work that
should be done with puppies.
When people bring an 8 week old puppy home their first concerns are
“what should I feed my puppy and how do I stop it from peeing on the
floor?” These are important, credible concerns but equally important,
and often ignored, is the concept of how to establish yourself as your
new pups pack leader.
The average dog owner does not have a clue about how strong the
genes are that control their puppies temperament, personality and
drives. Puppies that don’t have a solid pack structure grow up to become
dominant, obnoxious adult dogs.
This article will explain how we raise a new puppy in our home.
I have owned and trained dogs for 45 years, bred over 350 litters of
German Shepherds since 1978. Cindy has owned dogs her entire life
and done serious competition training since 1984. I only tell you these
things so you can see that we have a lot of experience and expertise in
this area. God knows there are enough people out there with little to no
experience who will also offer you advice on this subject.

The Beginning of
Pack Structure
When a puppy is raised with littermates they begin to establish their
family pack at about 4 ½ weeks of age. They start by playing with one
another. They bite and push each other around. Those pups that bite the
hardest and push the most become the higher ranking pack members
of the litter.
With that said, there is no question that the mother is the pack leader. A
good mother will exert her leadership by warning puppies to stay away
from her food bowl when she is eating. She protects her litter which
demonstrates leadership and she also controls the litter in subtle ways
that establish her as the pack leader.
What is a Pack Leader?
When people get puppies they need to establish themselves as the new
pack leader. To do this correctly they should first understand exactly
what a pack leader is.
Pack leaders are aloof, they are calm and they are self confident. A
pack leader is fair in how he lives with pack members and while he is a
dictator, he is a fair dictator who enforces a well defined set of rules that
members know, understand and are expected to live by.
What a pack leader is not is a dictator who looses his temper, bullies pack
members into compliance, and does not act in a fair manner in regard
to the lives of pack members.
For example, the leader always eats first. Lower ranking members don’t
get the choice food. When the leader is finished and he turns the food
over to other pack members, he does not come back and drive them
away from the food.
People who put food down and then take it away or push the dogs away
from the food bowl are bullies. This is how their dogs view them too. This
is not practicing fair leadership principles.

training article
The correct way is to make the dog do something (i.e. sit) before the
food is put down. Once it’s down they leave it alone until its time to pick
it up. We leave food down for 15 minutes and then pick it up, even if the
dog has not eaten it all.
It’s easy to bully your way into a leadership position. People (mostly
men) do this all the time. The problem is that the bullying destroys their
relationship with their dogs.
I want my pack members to trust me, feel relaxed around me, and be
comfortable in my presence. The only way this can happen is if they
know the rules and anticipate our expectations. When that happens
they know they will be treated fairly. They also know that if they ignore
the rules they will suffer the consequences.
This leadership relationship is a learned endeavor. It’s learned through
the day to day experiences of living with an owner who establishes and
enforces rules. It’s also learned through formal obedience training.
But with this said, I tell people that hundreds of thousands of dogs go
through obedience classes in this country every year. The vast majority
of dominant dogs come out of these classes just as dominant as when
they went in. That’s because the owners were not trained in pack
structure.
When puppies grow up and become dominant, aggressive dogs it is
because they live with people who do not establish the correct family
pack structure.
Our first goal is to reduce the possibility of house training mistakes and
to teach the pup that being wild in the house is not going to happen.
So in the beginning most of our interaction with a new pup is done
outside. We use a flat collar with a snap and one of the 20 foot cotton
lines we have. When the pup runs around we let it drag the line.
While this is not a house training article I want to make the point that
teaching a dog to pee or poop when its on a line is a very smart thing
to do. You will find out how smart if you ever have to travel with your
dog.
When we bring a pup in the house we never allow it to run around the
house. We always have a line on it. What better way to establish our
leadership than to control every aspect of the pups life. Trust me this
does not fall on deaf ears.
Those who allow puppies to run around un-tethered are only asking
for the problems that will eventually come up. These pups are going to
get into things, they are going to pee on the floor, and they are going
to jump up and play bite.
When we are tired of dealing with the pup it goes into it’s crate. In the
beginning, its going to scream like a banshee for a few days but such
is life. We will put the pup in a crate in the garage and let it scream its
head off.
Where Does it Start?
For those who don’t have a garage you can leave a radio or TV on, or
cover the crate with a sheet, or leave one of the toys with treats in the
crate or leave a cows knuckle bone to chew on (although you need to
be a little careful about loose stools here)
When a puppy comes to your home its only experience in life has been
with it’s mother and littermates. It sees that things have changed but it has
no reason to believe that how it interacts with a family pack has changed.
As time passes and the pup calms down and learns manners in the
house I may let it lie at my feet when I work on my computer. If it doesn’t
calm down it stays in the crate when I don’t have time for it.
It has played with litter mates by biting and chasing, that’s how it thinks
it should continue to interact within a family pack.
In the article I wrote called “Who Pets My Puppy” I explain why I don’t
allow other people to pet or play with my puppy. The short version is
that I want to become the center of the universe for my dog. I don’t want
my dog to be looking to other people as a source of praise and fun. I
recommend that you take a minute and read or listen to that article.
It takes a few days but once it accepts you and your family as its new
pack it will try to interact with you the same way it did with litter mates,
by biting and chewing.
The fact is, in its own small way its trying to find its rank within the new
pecking order of your family.
It’s your job to teach your puppy, without scaring it, that you are the
new pack leader. It’s your job to teach it that biting and chewing high
ranking human pack members is unacceptable. Many people ignore
these small challenges and others over react to them. You have to find
the middle of the road.

Dogs

#301-D $40.00
http://leerburg.com/301.htm
Every year hundreds of thousands of dogs go through obedience
training. The majority of dominant dogs that go through this training
come out just as dominant as before they started training. The reason
for this is that instructors and owners do not address issues of pack drive
and rank within the pack.
This DVD was produced to help people analyze their dog’s aggression
problems. I have provided information to either help owners solve these
problems, or if the handler does not feel comfortable in doing the work
himself, the DVD will educate the owner so they can find a behaviorist
that is qualified to work with dominant and aggressive dogs.
The vast majority of dog behaviorists are unqualified to offer advice
on dog aggression or dominance. This DVD (and the e-book I
wrote) provide enough information to help dog owners determine
if an individual is qualified to assist in dominant or aggressive dog
problems.
This DVD covers:
1. The types of dominance and the triggers that cause the
dog to display this dominance
2. Recognizing the signs of dominance
3. Living with and training a dominant dog
4. Problem Solving
5. Picking a behaviorist

Until now there has never been a well done training video that teaches
pet owners the concepts of how to train with an electric collar. In my
opinion the videos that come with various manufacturers collars are
almost useless.
When used properly e-collar training is one of the most humane
methods ever developed to train dogs. I call it training with an invisible
leash. There is a myth that stimulation from an e-collar always involves
pain. This is simply not true.
There are a number of different theories of how to train with an e-collar.
I explain these methods in my DVD and then tell you why the methods I
am offering are the best I have seen in 20 years of e-collar training.
The goal of all dog training is to teach our dog to follow a voice
command. The training methods in this DVD teach a dog that the
stimulation for an e-collar comes from the owner.
The DVD explains how to condition the dog to the e-collar. The old
school trainers who simply make a dog wear the collar for a couple of
weeks were wrong. I explain a better way.
The DVD explains what a dog should know before starting e-collar
training. Not every dog is trained with the same levels of stimulation.
Our DVD explains how to determine what level of stimulation your dog
should be trained at. I then explain the concepts of using the collar and
the protocol for taking a dog through this training.
There is also a section on using a collar to solve some behavioral
problems – i.e. dog aggression.

This video explains how to prepare and assist a bitch in whelping a
litter of puppies. There is extensive video of females whelping pups. It
tells the breeder exactly what needs to be done during the birth and
throughout the first 8 weeks of a pup’s life. Ed Frawley (the owner of
Leerburg Kennel) has bred German Shepherds since 1978. He has bred
over 350 litters. You will benefit from the practical experience he has
gained in whelping this many litters.
This video takes you through the trials of dealing with sick puppies. It
shows exactly how to tube feed a weak puppy and it provides a medical
program to follow for the entire litter.
As puppies go from day one to 8 weeks of age, they go through a series
of changes or stages of development. We have divided the video into
weekly segments. We explain the added responsibilities of the breeder
as his or her pups approach and go through the weaning process. There
is a list of “Do’s and Don’ts” to raising a healthy litter to 8 weeks of age.
If you thought breeding dogs was a simple matter you may change your
mind after watching this video. We constantly have people tell us that
they watch this video before, during, and after a litter is whelped.
The concepts that are explained in this video can be applied to every
breed of dog. Please view our web site and read the testimonials from
the people who have used the video.

PUPPY TRAINING
How to Raise a
Working Puppy
To help you form that plan this dog training DVD deals with the
following topics:
1. Should the working pup be a house dog or a kennel dog?
2. How to manage and neutralize a working pup to training collars.
3. How we teach a working puppy that a vehicle is going to be a big
part of its working career.
4. How a working puppy has to learn to be neutral to other dogs. We
explain the protocol in how we approach this process.
5. How we socialize or we say neutralize our pups to strange
environments.
6. One of the differences between a pet and a working puppy is that we
are not as concerned with the manners of a working puppy. With that
said there are certain manners that we do consider important and we
start work on them at a very early age.
7. It is very common for new trainers to over exercise their puppy. We
cannot tell anyone exactly how much to exercise their pup, but we do
talk about some of the guidelines that we take into consideration.
8. We have a section in the DVD on medical issues and a working
puppy. It’s a given that a working puppy is going to be exposed to
more examinations by a stranger ( a Vet) than the average dog. We
believe that a little forethought at an early age goes a long way towards
eliminating a dog getting stressed over this as an adult.
Only on DVD / 1 Hr. 15 Min.
117-D $40.00
http://leerburg.com/117.htm
9. We have a section on games and toys.
There is a big difference between how one should raise a working puppy
and how pet owners raise their pets. Working puppies are expected to
look at their world with more self confidence.
It does not make any difference if you are raising a Schutzhund puppy,
a police service dog puppy, a puppy for personal protection work,
or a puppy for competition obedience or agility. They can all benefit
by making some simple changes in how they are brought up and
handled.
10. If you are raising a working puppy you are probably going to have
a dog with a degree of drive. While this video does not show how to
bring out that drive (my video Building Drive and Focus does that) - we
do caution people that “JUST BECAUSE YOUR PUP CAN DO SOMETHING
DOES NOT MEAN IT SHOULD DO SOMETHING.”
This is not a bite training video. It is a video teaching people how we
raise our personal pups here at Leerburg®. Cindy Rhodes, my partner and
kennel manager, has raised more working puppies than anyone I know. I
also have bred more working puppies than anyone I know. We have put
our heads together to come up with a program that will benefit anyone
interested in raising working puppies. Cindy and I have close to 50 years
of combined experience raising and training dogs. This video allows you
to benefit from our experience.
In this video we outline in a step-by-step manner how to socialize,
imprint, and prepare your puppy for his or her working career. This is a
common sense approach that anyone can do.
The key to raising a successful working puppy is to make the best use
of the time you spend with your dog. An example of this is: one can
take their pup for a walk and have it just be exercised; or one can take
their pup for a walk and make it an experience in which the pup gets
exercise, along with a chance to learn MARKERS and be introduced to
environments that provide a small level of stress for the pup to learn to
work through.

Bernhard Flinks is one of Germany’s top Schutzhund and Police K-9
competitors. He has been in the German Bundesseigerprufung six times.
On three of those occasions he had the highest scoring protection dog
in the competition. In the 4th Bundesseigerprufung he had the second
highest scoring dog in protection. In 2002 he finished 13th with his
dog Itor.
Bernhard is known in Germany for his ability to train dogs to work in
high drive and bite with deep, full, calm grips. He is considered a master
of grip training.

This is the perfect soft, rubber ball on a string. It does not have a bell
inside for the dog to accidently swallow. In training, in order to build
drive it is important not to use a hard rubber ball on a string. A hard ball
can actually reduce drive if you accidently hit the dog in the head as you
work the dog. Trainers should never use tennis balls because their saliva
combines with the glue in the cover of the ball and decays the tooth
enamel. If you are going to train using the Bernhard Flinks method to
build drive you will need a ball on a string.
This video shows the foundation of grip work. No other instructor breaks
grip training down to this level and makes it so easy for new trainers to
understand. The great part of this foundational training is that all of this
work can be done at home and does not require a helper.
Bernhard is the first sport instructor I have met who places a great
deal of emphasis on the relationship between the dog and its handler.
His program teaches handlers how to build a relationship of trust and
understanding. In his seminars he often says that this training program
establishes a better relationship with your dog than letting the dog
sleep in your bed at night.
This 2 hour video teaches people how to bring their dog’s drive up to
its genetic potential of drive. When a dog is able to be placed in highdrive we then show how to teach focus and concentration. Dogs must
learn to remain in high-drive and concentrate for 15 minutes if they are
going to do well in a Schutzhund Obedience routine. In this video dogs
learn that heel, sit, and down are drive exercises and not compulsion
exercises. If you would like to learn more about this video please visit

Preparing Your Dog
for the Helper
“The Foundation of
Grip Training”
Only on DVD / 4 Hrs.
#310-D $65.00
http://leerburg.com/310.htm
This is the training video that follows “Building Drive and Focus Video”.
This video teaches the handler how to prepare a dog to start protection
work on a helper. Over the years trainers have been led to believe
that they needed an experienced training helper to teach a dog the
foundation of bite development. This was not accurate.
While we will always need good helpers, Bernhard Flinks is changing the
way we look at bite development. He is teaching trainers that through
proper play and drive building exercises we don’t need to introduce our
young dogs to a helper until they are 10 or 12 months old. This 4 hour
DVD covers that training in detail.
Bernhard shows people (through a step-by-step training program) how
to work with their own dogs at home or at their training club. If you work
your dog for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, two or three times a day, trainers can
establish the foundation and technique of gripping, biting, carrying,
and outing.
The foundation of all Schutzhund bite work is a full calm grip. No one
gets full points in Schutzhund unless their dog demonstrates a full calm
grip. Bernhard is known in Germany as a master of GRIP TRAINING. He
has been in the Bundessieger Prufung 6 times with three different dogs.
He had the highest protection score three times, the second highest one
Training the
Motivational Retrieve
time and SG twice (but with perfect grips on his current dog Itor). No
one is better at grip development than Bernhard Flinks.
The goal of this training video is to teach grip work. Some of the
segments of this video are:
1. Teaching the dog to STRIKE the prey item.
2. Teaching the dog to carry and hold the prey item without mouthing.
3. Teaching the dog to run in a circle without mouthing.
4. Teaching the dog to come into our arms and stand calmly without
mouthing.
5. Teaching the dog to have a firm hold on the prey item.
6. Teaching the dog to OUT the prey item in a manner that does not
promote chewing.
7. Teach the dogs to learn the technique of the escape, attack and
courage test without mouthing.
If you would like to see a detailed outline of what’s in this video, please
view my web at: http://leerburg.com/310.htm.
Many trainers feel that a forced retrieve is the only way to obtain a
consistent retrieve. This is not the case. Bernhard Flinks has a great
program to teach a motivational retrieve. His methods work with dogs
that have good prey drive. This training video covers a step by step
training program that everyone can use on their dogs. If you care about
the relationship you have with your dog you will train the motivational
retrieve. You can always resort to force if need be.
I went to Bernhard’s kennel in northern Germany to film this video. That
video footage was combined with footage from 5 training seminars that
I filmed here in this country.

This video uses all motivational methods to teach a dog to track. While
we discuss the difference between motivational tracking and forced
tracking, we do not teach any forced tracking in this video. The video
begins with the theory of track scent. There is a section on how to select
tracking fields for dogs of different skill levels. We show good and bad
fields for beginner dogs and the more advanced dogs.
This video was filmed in Holland while visiting the Dutch police dog
schools in Nunspeet and Rotterdam. I am not aware of any better hard
surface tracking instructors in the world. The key to hard surface tracking
is selecting the right dog. You will see the type of dogs the Dutch use
and I will point out a few of their training techniques in this video. The
purpose for this video is to show police dog handlers that hard surface
tracking is possible if you have the right dog and are willing to put in
the training time.
There is an excellent section on track laying. In this style of tracking the
handler lays his own tracks. You are shown the best ways to remember
where your track has been laid. You will learn how to use food in training
a foot step tracking dog. This is broken down into a step by step program
that anyone can follow.
Track Laying for the
Police Tracking Dog
To be competitive in tracking, you need to know when the dog is ready
for cross winds, tail winds, and cover changes. Understanding wind
currents is a must if you are going to develop a nose to the ground, step

The hardest part about training Police or S&R tracking dogs is finding
track layers. Every time you ask a new person to lay tracks you have to
go through the same ritual. You explain all of the basics and all of the
terminology for what needs to be done.
In my video titled “Training Police Tracking Dogs - Level One” I only spent

#205 $65.00
http://leerburg.com/205.htm
There are 2 types of tracking: “foot step tracking” and “tracking through
drive”. Foot step tracking is taught with food and a ball. It is designed for
sport dogs. Tracking through drive is designed for service dogs. Here the
dog is taught to follow the track at a dead run. There is always a person
at the end of every track. Tracking through drive is the only way to train
a S&R dog or a Police Service Dog.
If you are a K-9 officer who trains your service dog with food and a ball
you already know that you only catch 3% or 4% of the people you track.
The RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) catch 45% to 50% of all
the people they track. This includes suburban and urban tracking. If a
suspect runs in the country, they catch 95% of them.
This video was filmed in Alberta, Canada at the police dog training
center for the RCMP. The RCMP instructors are the best tracking dog
instructors in the world. They have been training police tracking dogs
since 1935. I filmed three videos with them. This is the first video. This
video will show how the RCMP can train a dog (in 60 training tracks) to
follow a 1 hour old, 5 KM, unknown track that contains back tracks, road
crossings, fence crossings, and articles.
The RCMP has 3 levels of tracking. This video covers Level One, or
tracking in a rural environment. Level Two and Three (Video 208) deals
with suburban and urban tracking.
I have had literally hundreds of K-9 officers call or write to say, “This is
the only way to train a police dog to track.” They wish they had seen this
video when starting to train their dogs. Many officers have said, “This
training method put the fire back into my police dog. Now he enjoys
tracking and we are catching people that used to get away.”
If you would like to read several excellent training articles on this subject,
please go to the article section on my home page at http://leerburg.
com/articles.htm. If you love tracking like I do, you will not regret the
effort. We have the best K-9 home page on the internet.
The RCMP use these three video tapes I did with them in their training
school. All new K-9 handlers view these videos.

This video was also done with the RCMP in Canada. In it we train a dog
to track in a suburban and urban environment. In Level One Tracking
(Video 205) we taught the dog to track in the country. The reason all
police dogs must first learn to track in the country is because the country
is relatively distraction free. We actually teach the dog to track in the
country and then use a portion of the Level Two & Three to teach the
dog to deal with the distractions of the city.
In this video the dogs learn to deal with extreme distractions: dogs
barking on the other side of a fence, cats in back yards, and kids
following along. The dogs also learn to deal with much smaller scent
pictures, more cross tracks, and extreme cover changes.
Most people think that handling a tracking dog simply means holding
on to the line and just following the dog. In fact, completing a successful
track is 75% proper handling and 25% good dog work.
This video teaches hard surface road crossings, along with extended
periods of track loss (where the dog must search and search for a lost
track.) We teach the handler the true meaning of “reading your dog.”
Every successful K-9 handler is a master at recognizing negatives and
assisting his dog in re-acquiring the lost track.
If you are a K-9 officer in a large city, do not buy this video thinking you
can skip the Level One country tracking just because you never track
outside the city. The country work is critical to the development of a
good tracking dog. Dogs must first learn to track in the country before
they are exposed to the distractions of city tracking. If you try and skip
country tracking you will fail, guaranteed.

PROTECTION TRAINING
Bite Training Puppies
DVD or VHS / 2 Hrs.
#108 $65.00
http://leerburg.com/108.htm
There are areas of dog training, whether it be Police Service work, KNPV,
Schutzhund, Personal Protection, or the Ring Sports, that require a dog
to learn to bite people. By selecting the right pup and then imprinting
as much bite work as possible at an early age, we end up with a much
better adult.
The first 45 minutes of this video deals with the instincts and drives to
look for in selecting a puppy for protection training. We show puppy
tests that explain how to select the right pup from a litter. This video
was filmed in Germany and America over a 5 year period. We filmed
a German litter being tested and then went back two years later and
filmed one of these dogs just before it got a SchH III.
The tests indicated that dogs from this litter would all do protection
work, but they would not make good obedience competitors. Our
selection tests were 100% accurate in forecasting the temperament of
these dogs. The dogs all did good protection work, but were stubborn
in obedience.
For a dog to become a successful protection dog, it must have its prey
drive developed at a young age. There is a window of opportunity that
takes place between 8 weeks and 14 or 15 months. If the prey drive is
not worked properly during this period, most dogs never develop to
their full potential. This video shows how to start this process.
Prey drive in a puppy is simply the drive to chase, grab, and play tug of
war with a prey item. The prey item is either a sack, a rag, or a puppy
tug. We use the prey drive to teach the puppy skills it will need later to
use in protection.
During this early imprinting, we show how to teach 8 week old pups to
grip (or bite) firm. We teach it to tolerate the stick, so it won’t look at it
in a negative way. We teach the pup that to win its prey it must not bite
and pull back (or tug back) but rather it must bite fuller and deeper into
the prey. This is called a COUNTER into the prey.
All of this training is done by the handler. I compare this to a father
teaching his child to fight. A father can teach his child the basic skills
of judo or karate and it’s all done in the framework of being a game.
It’s the same thing with the handler working his own pup in prey drive.
This video explains the information needed to teach a puppy the basic
skills of bite work.
While this training is the foundation for protection or attack work, the
pups are not capable of doing serious handler protection until they are
mentally mature enough to deal with the stress of a real encounter. Most
dogs are not mentally mature until they are 18 to 30 months old.
After breeding over 350 litters of German Shepherds, competing in
Schutzhund during the early and mid 1980’s, and then working a police
K-9 for 10 years as a Deputy Sheriff, I have learned that it is absolutely
necessary to start protection training at a very early age. The dogs that
are started young are much better prepared to deal with the stress of
defensive training that takes place when they mature.

http://leerburg.com/101-b.htm
When done properly, protection training is extremely complex. If the
foundation for protection work is not 100% correct, it is only a matter
of time before the dog and handler run into problems. The goal in
producing this video was to show that a person with little or no dog
training experience can understand how to lay this foundation.
The video begins with 6 month old dogs. It explains the drives of
protection training. It explains how a dog’s drives are effected by
its nerves and genetics. The viewer learns how to identify the drive
thresholds of his or her dog, and then uses that information to develop
a training program tailored to their specific dog.
The “helper” is the person that gets bit during protection training. In a
perfect world everyone would have an experienced helper to work with
their young dogs. If that were the case we would almost all have super
dogs. Few people are lucky enough to have a helper with any skill at all
to work their dog.
This video shows exactly what the handler can do with their own dog to
build a foundation for protection work. Just as importantly, we show the
exact spot in training where the handler has to get a helper to continue
the bite training. So the video answers the question “How much can I
do to train my own dog in protection training?”
This video is a must for training new helpers. It identifies the drives a dog
works in, critical distance, and avoidance. So the new helper has a clear
picture of exactly what their role is in the training process.
The video is organized into the following categories:
1. Drives and Drive Thresholds
2. How Nerves Effect Drive Thresholds
3. How to Organize a Training Session
4. Equipment & German Commands
5. The Role of the Handler in Bite Training
6. The Role of the Helper in Protection Training

For a dog to do police service work, serious personal protection work,
or good Schutzhund work, it must have a solid foundation in defensive
drive training. Before defensive training can take place, the dog must
have already gone through prey bite development and it must have
reached mental maturity. Starting defense work too young can ruin a
dog’s working ability for life.
This video assumes a dog has already gone through bite development.
This means “you and your dog” know and understand the material in
our bite development videos. If you need to know exactly what videos
cover bite development go to my web site for this training video (http://
leerburg.com/105.htm) and you will see a list of tapes I recommend
before the work on this tapes starts.
Defensive drive is very different from prey drive. A dogs’ defensive drive
is the drive to protect itself from a perceived threat. Prey is the drive to
chase and capture prey. These are two totally different concepts in the
mind of the dog.
Training Personal Protections Dogs provides the information needed
to convert a sport schutzhund dog or a dog with basic bite training
into a Personal Protection Dog. The first portion covers GERMAN and
ENGLISH commands used in bite training; followed by discussions on
safe equipment and dog handling during bite work; then basic tests for
Personal Protection dogs, and “Learning Curves in Bite Training”.
You can learn about prey drive development in my video titled “The
First Steps of Bite Training” (video 101-B) or you can view my internet

this subject. This information is located at http://leerburg.com/articles.

This video shows how to target the dogs bite to different parts of the
body. This is taught in segments using body bite suits . We begin with Leg
Bites; then Leg to Arm Transfers; then Leg to Arm and Arm to Leg Transfers;
then Arm to Arm Transfers; and finally Shou­lder and Back Bites.
Dogs reach mental maturity at different ages. Some as young as 16
months, while others don’t mature until they are over 30 months old.
The training in this video should not begin until a dog is mature enough
to handle the stress of defensive training.
A dog is not in a comfortable situation when it is initially working in
defense. In defensive work, the dog is being threatened and thinks it is
about to be attacked. As a result it’s stressed. We cannot put young pups
or young adults in this position. This would be compared to expecting
an 8 year old boy to defend his home from burglars.
Our video shows how to take a young dog through the steps of
defensive training. This is an extremely critical phase of a dog’s training
career. The reason for this is that there is a fine line between a dog
defending itself, and the fight or flight response. In protection training
we never want to push a dog into avoidance.
For years people in this country have only trained dogs in prey drive.
In fact, even today many dogs are still trained only in prey drive. This is
a serious mistake if the handler ever expects that dog to do any form
of personal protection. Dogs trained only in prey do not protect their
handlers.
The helper work for defense can never be done by the dog’s owner.
It must always be done by a helper that is adept at reading and
understanding the drives and temperament of defense. If you are
training a new helper, we recommend that your helper watch and learn
from the video. The information we cover is as important for the helper
as it is for the dog.

Although the concepts are similar to those covered in our video 104
“Police Service Dogs,” most Personal Protection dogs are not as strong
as patrol dogs, and therefore need more train­ing steps in their program.
We show you how to do this. Muzzle work is the only way to proof a dog
that has been trained in body bites. Muzzle training is broken into 6
steps followed by a section on “Helper Hints” for effective muzzle work.
We then discuss 4 methods of putting defense or civil drive into your
dog. Civil drive is the ability of a dog to alert on a man without protective
equipment on.
Strong dogs with a lot of civil drive, will turn on their hand­lers if they
receive too much pressure during training. Although this type of dog is
not common in America, you need to know how to safely handle it when
you see it. This video demonstrates 4 methods to safely work strong, civil
dogs. You learn when one method should be used over another.

This video assumes the viewer understands the basics of bite training.
If you have never trained a protection dog, we recommend you first
purchase our video series on bite development: “The First Steps of Bite
Training” and “The First Steps of Defense”.
Many police departments waste THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in officer
training time with dogs that never should have been selected as a Patrol
Dog. Our video on “Training a Police Service Dog” shows how to test a
dog to determine if it has the nec­essary drive to do police work.
Some dogs make excellent per­sonal protection dogs, but are not
good enough for police work. We show exactly where to draw the line
between a Personal Protection Dog and a Police Service Dog.
The majority of accidental training bites are caused from equ­ipment
failure or handler errors. Our video shows what equipment to use. We
include an excellent section on leash handling during bite training.
We show how to train a dog to target its bite to the entire body starting
with leg bites, then leg to arm transfers, arm to leg transfers, and finally,
back and shoulder bites.
Police dogs are often sent off leash, so we show how to put “off leash
control” into the dogs. Off leash control is a must for every department
that wants to eliminate accidental bites.
We show how to train a K-9 to work a traffic stop. The dog must learn
when he can and cannot leave the car.
This video has detailed sections on blind work, field searches, and
building sear­ches. Building searches are one of the most hazardous duty
assignments a K-9 officer is required to perform. Our trai­ning methods
focus on officer survival.
This video does not deal with training a police dog to track. If you have
an interest in training service dogs to track you should refer to the 3
training videos (205, 207, 208) that I have done with the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police (RCMP). The RCMP has the best tracking dogs in the
world. These videos will show how they catch 95% of the suspects they
track in rural areas.

Training a police dog the bark & hold (B&H) is very different from training
a sport dog the B&H. Most service dogs come from the ranks of sport
dogs. They must quickly change their view of the helper from someone
that is a prey object, to someone who is a fighting partner. Trainers do
not have months to accomplish this, in most cases it must be done in
weeks.
This requires different training methods and a different attitude toward
barking. No longer does the dog sit closely to the helper barking in a
challenging manner, hoping to make the helper flee so he can get a
bite. Rather, the dog stands back 2 or 3 meters (because he realizes the
suspect can hurt him) and he barks to notify his handler that he has
found the suspect.
A police dog must now view the helper as a fighting partner and not the
motor behind his prey item or his sleeve. The bark and hold for a police
dog must come from fight drive.
Fight drive is an inherited characteristic. It is not something that can
be trained into a dog. Fight drive is often confused as defense. It is not
defense. A dog becomes defensive when it is put in a situation where it
is concerned for its own safety. Dogs are not comfortable when they are
working in defense. Fight drive on the other hand is based on experience
and self confidence. When a dog is working in fight drive he is confident
of his ability to dominate the suspect under every circumstance and in
every environment. In this video there is an extensive section dealing
with fight drive work, on green dogs and experienced dogs.
The thing that surprises conventional trainers is the decoy work for this
method of bark & hold training. It’s easier and it makes a lot more sense
than what most people are used to. Our video explains the decoy work
in detail.
Dogs that work in fight drive rather than prey drive are a lot easier for
the handlers to control. This video shows how to get a serious bark and
hold out of a genetically correct dog. The video is a must for every K-9
handler and sport trainer that wants to train a more serious dog.
If you would like to learn more about the B&H for Police Service Dogs,
visit my web site http://leerburg.com. I have written several excellent
articles on the drives of protection training and the bark & hold for police
service dogs. You will also find articles on training police tracking dogs.

http://leerburg.com/121.htm
Our training video deals with “Muzzle Fighting” for police service dogs.
Working in muzzle is one of the least understood exercises in protection
work. The video takes the viewer step by step through muzzle fighting.
DVD or VHS / 1 Hr. 40 Min.
#111 $49.00
http://leerburg.com/111.htm
The reason we chose the term “MUZZLE FIGHTING” is because there is a
real difference between what we show in this video, and what happens
when someone just throws a muzzle on a dog and sends him after a
helper without a sleeve. If a dog is genetically capable of muzzle fighting
we will show you how to train it to use its body to go out and knock the
snot out of someone.
Police K-9 training programs need to simulate actual street situations. In
this video we set up a number of common scenarios that have actually
happened with K-9 Teams. We show what happens when the average
Police Service Dog is placed in these situations. We recommend several
changes to training programs that will compensate for past mistakes.
You will see how these changes result in a safer situation for the officers
and their dogs.
The goal of this video is to train a dog in muzzle to alert on a passive
suspect located some distance from his handler. If that suspect tries
to fight or flee, the dog is to physically fight the man by punching him
center mass with his body. Training a dog to indicate on a suspect that
is running away from him, stimulating him, or agitating him is easy.
Training a dog to indicate on a man standing still, or a man laying
quietly on the ground is another matter all together.
When a K-9 Handler responds to a call with outside officers who have
never worked with police dogs, the handler must be familiar with
the procedure to control the situation. In this video we explain how
to organize a search team. We explain how to brief the team on each
member’s responsibilities. You will see several excellent searches and
you will also see what can happen when a K-9 search goes bad.
This video explores the various muzzles on the market. It shows
exactly what a dog must be doing in bite work before it is ready to be
introduced to muzzle fighting. We go through all of the training steps
for muzzle and show examples of what happens to dogs when they get
ahead of themselves in training.
Safe gun handling reaches a new dimension when a dog is added.
Working a dog under friendly fire, handler fire and shots fired by the
suspect are all covered in detail. We show how dangerous a dog can
be to his own handler and other officers if it is aggressive to gun fire.
We also show how to train a dog not to be aggressive to gun fire. Arrest
procedures with a dog are covered in detail.
We also show what happens to dogs that are not genetically capable of
doing this work. We go through the training steps for bark and hold in
muzzle, and we show you how to set up scenarios in muzzle, that fit your
needs. This video is also ideal for the helper, because too many times
people ask friends or other officers to help them with their muzzle work.
Too often this creates problems.
International Police Service Dog Competitions
Good muzzle training adds “fight drive” to a dog. It teaches the dog to
work center mass on a helper’s body and not focus on sleeves and other
equipment. Sport dog trainers can learn a lot about improving their
dogs through this aspect of police work. Teaching a sport dog to do bark
and hold in muzzle really produces flashy SCHUTZHUND dogs.
This 1 hour video is on the Police WPO Trials. These competitions
consist of 3 different phases: Tracking, Obedience and Apprehension.
This video shows all 3 phases.
Training a police service dog in the muzzle is a must for K-9 officers that
wish to work the street with a dog.

#122 $65.00
http://leerburg.com/122.htm
This video deals with the process of developing a police dog’s skill in
locating criminal suspects hiding in a building.
When you watch a good service dog doing a building search he makes it
look easy. Believe me it’s not. New officers often over estimate their dog’s
ability to perform this skill. They fall into the “NOSE TRAP,” that’s where
a handler assumes that because his dog has a good sense of smell the
dog will not have a problem learning a building search.
Over estimating your dog’s scenting ability is not only bad dog training,
it could very well get you killed. This almost happened to me. What I
cover in this video is very serious training for police K-9 officers.
The video has a number of training segments. There is a short segment
explaining what kind of temperament a dog should have for this work,
there is a segment where a dog should be in training before starting
Building Search training, there is a segment on the most common
problems that dogs face when they start the training and there is a
detailed step by step breakdown of the training. These training steps
cover pursuits into a building, announcements by the handler, learning
indications, off lead control and passive suspects, muzzle work and
directed searches in a building.
This video has had excellent reviews by very experienced K-9 handlers.
Check out our web site for more details on this video.
Training
Narcotic
Detection
Dogs
If a service dog is to work safely off leash it must know the directed
search. In today’s society K-9 handlers must have complete control over
their dogs at all times. The training program for the directed search is
an excellent way to accomplish this goal.
The training segments for this tape are:
-Training the Recall under Extreme Distraction
-Teaching the Blind Search on a Training Field
-Teaching the Directed Search in a Building
-Drive Building Exercises for Directed Search
This video and the building search video were done with the help of
Kevin Sheldahl. Kevin is a full time police K-9 officer plus an International
Police Dog Judge for WPO, PSP, and DPO. I feel he is one of the top police
K-9 instructors in the world. Check our web site for more details.
This video details selection testing dogs for narcotics work. We
demonstrate selection testing with several breeds of dogs. The video
discusses the types of narcotics to train with, and the safety measures a
handler is required to take with the dif­ferent types of drugs.
We demonstrate how to start a dog in training and how to advance him
through his training in a step by step man­ner until he is ready to work
the street.
Using a Narcotics detection dog is “the most unobtrusive method
available to search a suspects vehicle, house, or belongings.” The goal
of every narcotics dog handler should be to eliminate false indications
by his dog (an intentional false indication could lead to violation of a
person’s constitutional rights). This video emphasizes training techniques

This is the best obedience video on the market for teaching people how

heeling. Tom deals with sits, downs, fronts, and much more.
We teach how to get and keep eye contact with the dog during
obedience work. The dog is taught to always focus its attention on the
handler’s face. If the dog understands an exercise and is always giving
eye contact with the handler throughout an exercise it is less likely to
miss a command. It is also going to look great for the judge.
In this video we use the students from Tom Rose’s Dog Training School
working with untrained dogs. By including these students (along with
Tom working his own dog) you will see the correct way to train and you
will see the most common mistakes all new handlers make.
Our customers are always telling us that what sets our videos apart from
all other dog obedience videos is we use untrained dogs. Where as, all of
the other videos on the market use fully trained dogs to demonstrate an
exercise. Untrained dogs will almost always have the same problems and
make the same mistakes. People learn more from watching untrained

In my opinion the best way to train the retrieve is motivational.
Unfortunately not all dogs can be trained with motivation. Dogs who
will not train motivational need to be force trained.
The Agility Dog Sport came to this country from England. It can be
compared to a horseman’s steeplechase. In the Agility sport, a dog must
run through a course with a number of different jumps and climbing
apparatus. This is a timed event with detailed rules. The handlers run
along with their dogs and direct them to each of the jumps. This is one
of the fastest growing sports in America.
Over the years there have been a number of methods used to train the
forced retrieve: the ear pinch, the electric shock collar, or a line attached
to the dogs toe that a handler would pull. While all of these methods
work, none work as quickly as the techniques shown in this video.
In this video Tom Rose takes two dogs that had never had retrieval
training. They were both holding the article after their first training
session.
Tom’s method produces the quickest results with the least amount
of stress on the dog. You will see that Tom offers very little room for
avoidance during this work. He progresses through very small training
steps which keeps the stress level to a minimum for the dog.
Over the years I have seen trainers in Europe and the States use one part
or another of this program, but I have never seen it put together this
way. Tom Rose has refined the forced retrieve to an easily understood
program that anyone can follow.
Schutzhund the Dog Sport
This video was filmed in England with Peter Lewis. Peter started training
agility in the early 1980’s. He is the founder of the Agility Dog Sport. The
video approaches every type of jump and climbing article, separately.
The training for each jump is broken down into a step by step training
method that works on all dogs. Peter’s methods are strictly motivational,
there is no force used. This results in happy working dogs that literally
fly over the jumps.
The video teaches how to train the dog to hit every contact point. It
also has a detailed training section on how to handle a dog in an Agility
Competition. Unlike AKC Obedience, Agility dogs need to work on
the right, the left, in front, and behind the handler. American trainers
have never had to approach this type of handling in any other style of
training. This video shows you how to “handle” your dog in Agility.
Schutzhund is by far the most popular dog sport in Europe, with the
first Schutzhund exam taking place in 1901. It’s now the fastest growing
dog sport in America. Schutzhund came to this country in 1970 when
a German immigrant, Gernot Ridel, introduced it in southern California.
Gernot traveled the country during the 1970’s giving Schutzhund
seminars. I attended one of the seminars in 1974 and got hooked.
This video is intended to educate the viewer on what the sport of
Schutzhund is all about. You will learn how the sport was formed, and
why Schutzhund is the reason German bloodline dogs are so much
better than American dogs. There is a section detailing the origins
and the history of Schutzhund, and a section explaining the various
Schutzhund titles. Much of this video was filmed in Germany.

The first section on pre-trial preparation, explains how serious
competitors prepare for an upcoming competition. We explain how a
well prepared handler gets the most out of his dog, and reduces stress
on the day of the trial.
The section on tracking begins with: preparing your dog the morning
of the trial, reporting to the trial secretary, reporting to the judge with
your dog before the track, laying your track for competition (what is
acceptable and what is not), tracking your dog, receiving your critique,
and finally, how to deal with a dog that is having problems on a track.
The obedience and protection sections are broken down into equally
detailed sub-sections. Not only did we try to show the correct way to
handle a dog in a trial, we also dealt with the most common handler
errors.

This video is intended for the person that has never done agitation or
helper work before. If you have a friend, relative, or club member that
wants to learn how to take bites, this video is the place to start. It is not
a dog training video, it is a video for training people.
This training video was made with the help of Tom Rose and has
detailed, step by step training sections. We show exercises that teach
helpers footwork for the courage tests, and advanced defensive work
with dogs. We detail step by step training sequences that all helpers
should work through to develop smooth, frontal catches. We show the
correct way to administer stick hits, both from a technical standpoint,
and from the judge’s viewpoint.
It begins with selecting the type of dog to use with new helpers. There
is also a short section on the equipment that is needed for this training.
The video begins by teaching the new helper how to take escape
bites. The escape is broken down into 6 incremental parts. Each part
is examined in slow motion and discussed in great detail. There are
numerous examples by helpers, demonstrating the correct way to
do this exercise. There is also excellent footage of the most common
mistakes new helpers make as they learn proper bite work.
The new helper then learns how to drive the dog. There is a section on
the skip drive, and another on the running drive. We show new exercises
to improve footwork without the dog. The helpers will learn how to put
a dog in the pocket and keep him there. This is followed by a section on
taking bites out of the blind, and then re-attack work. These are the most
basic of skills, but they are fundamental to all future helper training.

Throughout the video we stress that good helper techniques result
in safer work for the dog. Poor helpers hurt dogs. We have set up and
filmed some dramatic examples to show what bad timing can do. It
is our feeling that this video is going to educate a lot of competitors,
handlers, and trainers on advanced helper work.
Poor helper work in training has broken more teeth on good dogs than
we would like to think about. This video will teach you techniques to
eliminate unnecessary accidents.
If you are a police officer or personal protection trainer, you should get
this video. Police helpers need to learn how to do this work properly.
Tom is a Schutzhund judge. We reflect what a judge expects from a trial
helper and identify the most common helper errors.
This training vest is imported from Europe. The nylon vest has leather
shoulder pads along with numerous front and back pockets for tracking
lines, tracking articles, tugs, balls, gloves, and anything else you may
need in training your dog. There is a large pocket in the back and a
drawstring waist. It is a super training vest. It is perfect for police K-9
officers to wear over uniforms when they train.

http://leerburg.com/512.htm
The Mondio Ring is gaining in popularity in America. It translates into
“WORLD RING.” It is a combination of the French Ring Sport, the Belgian
Ring Sport, the KNPV, and SCHUTZHUND. It came about as a result of a
desire for a dog sport that all the people of Europe could compete in.
The sport is difficult for SCHUTZHUND dogs and KNPV dogs. The reason
is that the Belgium ring is much more intense, and the French helpers
are the fastest in the world.
Belgium Ring
Championship
2001 NVBK (Catagory 2)
VHS ONLY / 2 Hrs.
#455 $15.00
http://leerburg.com/455.htm
There are two Ring Organizations in Belgium. The “NVBK” and “La Societe
Royale Saint Hubert.” In 2001, I traveled to Eisden, Belgium and filmed
the NVBK Catagory 2 Championships.
This video was filmed in 1988 in Tournai, Belgium. Tournai is on the
French border near Lille, France. This video is packed with action. You
really need to see this to believe what some of these dogs are capable
of doing. I have included the most exciting portions of Mondio, in
addition to portions of the demonstrations from the Belgian Ring, the
French Ring, and the Dutch KNPV. You will see a helper do bite work
on his back in a small swimming pool. You will see a dog go through a
wall of fire to take a bite. You will see a dog guard an article (when the
article is a small girl).
The winner of the 2001 competition was Bart Ballon. Bart is a popular
trainer in Europe and around the world. He is known for his seminars
(some with Helmut Riaser) on training with electric collars. It is evident
by watching his winning performance that he is one of the top dog
trainers in the world.
This is the first video of the Mondio Ring. In it you will see the famous
Malinois, “BEBBA”. He is the highest scoring dog in the history of the
Mondio Ring, and certainly one of the finest Malinois to ever live. The
Mondio Ring is the most difficult dog sport in the world. As a rule, dogs
that come from the Mondio Ring Sport make the best police service
dogs.
While there are many similarities between the two ring organizations,
there are also clear differences. To begin with, all of the St. Hubert dogs
(Malinois) are registered dogs, while the majority of NVBK are nonregistered dogs.
This is a video that fascinates people. If you have seen other interesting
demonstration videos I will say this, “You haven’t seen anything until you
have seen the Mondio Ring”.
Both organizations have standardized obedience exercises that do not
change from event to event, neither organization has tracking. But
both have non-standardized protection routines, which means the
competitors do not know what the exact exercises are until the day they
arrive. This means that the dogs must go through a great deal of training
to be prepared for what the judges set up for the bite work. The helper
at this year’s event was outstanding. He was one of the best ring helpers
I have seen at any ring event.
If you have an interest in Belgian Malinois and have always wondered
about the differences between the two Malinois organizations in
Belgium, watch a couple of these videos and you will learn the
differences between the two.

http://leerburg.com/107.htm
The French Ring Sport is a new and exciting working dog sport that has
come from France. Through it we are exposed to the cutting edge of
bite work training.
The French Ring Sport is one of the most demanding working dog sports
there is. The French helpers are the most IN­TENSE in the world. If a dog
can work against a good French helper he can work against any helper,
any place, any time.
The French have developed leg biting into an art form. We show how
they break leg bites into incre­mental parts and then train the parts.
When the parts are trained, we put them all together for the finished
product.
The stick used in the ring is a 1-inch thick piece of bamboo that has been
split down the middle several times. Some people call it a “clatter stick”
(because of the noise it makes when it vibrates). This noise alone will
send all but the best dogs run­ning back to their handler. In Schutzhund,
a dog is hit twice in an attack. I have footage of a dog taking over 50
hits with a stick in less than a minute. This tape shows you how to use
the stick and train a dog to work under it.
In the video we show some of the advanced ring exercises. You will see
the training steps involved in the; GUARD THE ARTI­CLE, the BACKWARD
HEEL TO WARD OFF A REAR ATTACK, FOOD REFUSAL, and HOW TO WORK
UNDER GUN FIRE.

In 1985, I saw my first HGH Nationals in Europe. This is the type of sheep
herding German Shepherd dogs do best. It is also the style of training
the AKC has based their herding instinct testing, and course “C” on. I
originally felt that the dogs did this work so naturally that they had to
be doing it from instinct and not training. I was wrong. Since then I have
collected enough information from Karl Fuller of Kirschental Kennels in
West Germany to produce this video.
Karl Fuller has won West Germany’s HGH nationals 7 times. He has bred
more HGH Siegers and Siegrens than any other breeder. The training
concepts in this video are a result of the time Karl has generously spent
with my friends and I.
The Continental or Tending style of sheep dog training was developed
in the areas of Europe where there are few fences and specific fields that
could be grazed. The Tending style is totally different than what most
people think of when they see Collies work sheep. Collies drive sheep
from behind and cut sheep from the flock. In the Tending style, the
sheep are trained to follow the Shepherd and come when called. The
dogs act as a living fence to keep the flock in the fields, the Shepherd
wants them to graze. Our video shows that while genetics improve
performance, systematic step by step work produces a well trained
sheep herding dog.

“The Next Step,” picks up where the first video finishes. It is 59 minutes
long, and begins with ideas to slow your dog down, which includes the
progressive training of the ‘stop’ command. Advanced training becomes
much easier if your dog will hold a ‘stay’ while the handler moves off of
the balance point.
The video goes on to teach respect of the flight zone and a straight walkup. These skills were touched on in the first video, and have now been
defined in an organized manner so that you can prepare a training plan
and move on to the next level.
“The Next Step,” then demonstrates drills to extend and widen the
outrun, followed by trial skills including take pens and freestanding
obstacles, and introducing driving.
The feedback received only confirms the integrity of Lynn’s teaching
methods: “There are quite a few herding videos out there, and this one
is the best herding video yet.”

Training article
The Theory of
Corrections in
Dog Training
By Ed Frawley
get a better understanding of how I approach dog training if you read
the article I wrote on my “Philosophy of Dog Training.”
One of the most misunderstood areas of dog training, by beginners and
so-called professionals alike, is how and when to correct a dog. The lack
of understanding of corrections is where most people get into trouble
in dog training.
Unfortunately, in the past 20 years, we have seen a movement in dog
training that promotes motivational methods to train dogs, but doesn’t
encompass corrections. The people who teach these programs do a
dis-service to the art of dog training.
When new pet owners first learn to train, they think corrections are
either: a verbal reprimand, a jerk on the leash, or putting the dog in the
bedroom for inappropriate behavior. For some dogs this is enough, but
for those who wish to take their dog to a higher level of performance
this is not adequate.
Some people confuse the bond with a dog and what I want to call
trust. Many interpret a bond as being a relationship of love and that’s
not what I look for in my dog. A dog can love you and not respect you.
I can’t have a relationship with a dog without having respect from that
dog.
Getting a dog’s respect is not something that happens overnight. The
trust phase can take months. The DVD I produced titled “Building Drive
and Focus,” teaches the foundation for this phase of training.
Corrections vs. Forced Training
There is a difference between giving a correction in normal training and
forcing a dog to comply. This article will explore both areas.
The wrong kind of correction, a correction at the wrong point in time,
or the lack of a correction is what gets people in trouble. This article will
explore the world of corrections in dog training.
While I am not a fan of forced training I understand it. Unfortunately in
my career I have used forced training and I now regret doing so. Maybe
in some small way this article is written as an apology to my past dogs
that deserved better than I gave them.
My hope is that by explaining the theory behind the various forms of
corrections owners will become better educated and therefore better
dog trainers. Through this article you will find that I am not a fan of
forced training. But with this said, you will also learn that to ignore
corrections during training or to use the wrong correction at the wrong
time can actually set your training back and possibly destroy the bond
between you and your dog.
While this article will explain the various methods used to force a
dog to comply, I am only doing this with the hope that readers will
recognize these methods if they see them in a local obedience class
or if a professional trainer that’s hired to solve a problem uses too
much force. I hope new trainers will be willing to walk away from these
environments because they know there is a better way.
To understand corrections we must first explore the goals that different
trainers have for training their dogs.
Formal Obedience Training
vs. Pack Behavior
Some trainers follow the theory that “the end justifies the means.”
These people use a lot of force when they train a dog. This is a common
approach for many professional dog trainers. These people must
accomplish a great deal within a short period of time or they can’t make
enough money to justify the time spent in training a customer’s dog. I
am not a fan of forced training which is why I am not a fan of sending
dogs off to a professional trainer.
My goal in training is to teach my dog to first trust me and then when
that’s done, to follow my voice command. In the “trust phase” of
training the dog learns that I am fair but firm. My dog sees that I treat it
with respect and expect respect in return. It learns that above all I am
consistent and when I ask him to do something he must do it. You can

First let us examine the difference between corrections used in
obedience training and corrections used for inappropriate pack
behavior.
If you have my “Basic Dog Obedience” DVD you will have heard me say
that you never correct a dog in formal obedience training unless you are
100% sure that dog knows the meaning of the command he is refusing
to follow. There are not a lot of rules in dog training but this is one of
them for obedience training.
With this said, a dog can receive a correction for inappropriate pack
behavior even if you have never trained the correct behavior. Dogs
instinctually understand pack behavior. I will explain this later in the article.

training article
Pups and Corrections
The Beginning of Pack Behavior
A pup learns to respect his mother from the early days of its life. This is
the beginning of the pup understanding the concept of a pack leader
and rank within the pack.
When pups are 3 ½ to 5 weeks old many mothers will begin to growl
when pups come near her food. When she growls or even nips a pup
she is teaching them respect. Littermates also bite one another during
their play. This play biting establishes rank within the pack. The stronger
members bite and fight harder than lower ranking members.
When pups move into our human environment they expect their life will
continue just as it did within the litter. That’s why pups bite hands, socks,
ankles and kids. They are playing just like they did with littermates. This
play is also used to test their rank within their new human pack. They
are doing it in the only way they know how – with their body postures,
with their voice (through barking and growling) and with their mouths
(by grabbing and biting).
When human owners correct this biting behavior the pup accepts
them as their new pack leader. Just as the pup accepted their mother’s
position of authority when she growled or nipped them for coming too
close to her food bowl.
It’s not difficult to correct a pup for play biting behavior. It is difficult
for novice pet owners to correct a puppy at a level that does not
permanently damage its temperament. These owners don’t understand
how easy it is to cause permanent damage to a pup by over correcting.
One hard correction can have a life long effect on a soft puppy.
Fifteen years ago when I was breeding some very hard puppies I wrote
an article titled “Teaching Your Puppy the Meaning of the Word NO.” In
it I recommended grabbing the pup (when it was biting you or a family
member) by the nap of the neck and shaking until it squealed like a
pig. Well that advice was wrong. It worked for my pups because they
were hard pups and recovered quickly from a correction (and handler
mistakes). Soft puppies could have some serious problems with this
treatment.
Today, I recommend that we can get the point across with most (not all)
pups by simply grabbing a pup firmly by the scruff of both cheeks and
firmly holding them as we stare into their eyes and firmly warn them to
“KNOCK IT OFF”. You could even growl at them until they submit (just
as their mother did).
Shaking them until they squeal like a pig only scares them and does
nothing to build the relationship.
Pack Behavior
So, with all this said, what are pack behaviors?
1. When a dog jumps up and/or humps your leg, that’s a pack
behavior.
2. When a dog charges past you to get out the door, that’s a pack
behavior. Pack leaders go through doors and gates first.
3. When a dog barks like crazy at another dog that’s a pack behavior.
CALL US AT: 715.235.6502
FAX US AT: 715.235.8868
4. When a dog drags his owner down the street on a walk – that’s pack
behavior. Pack leaders always go first.
5. When a dog tries to fight with another dog, that’s a pack behavior.
Pack leaders say when and who to fight.
6. When a dog growls for moving it aside when you get in your bed or
on your furniture. That’s pack behavior that needs to be dealt with.
7. When a dog growls at you for disturbing it as you walk by as it sleeps
that’s a problem with rank behavior in the pack.
This is the short list of just a few of the most common forms of pack
behavior. It provides an example of pack behavior issues that deserve
corrections even though the owner has never trained them. I deal with
pack behavior corrections in a section near the end of this article.
So while you would not correct a dog for not coming when called until
after you have taught the meaning of the word COME, you can justifiably
correct a dog either verbally or with a training collar for inappropriate
pack behavior (i.e. getting on the bed or growling at you).
Let there be no misunderstanding, formal obedience means teaching
the dog the meaning of sit, come, stay, lay down or go to your place and
lie down. Don’t correct a dog for not following these commands until
you are 100% sure in your mind that your dog understands the meaning
of what you are asking him to do.
Training Collars
To understand corrections we need to first understand the tools used
to give a correction. Corrections are either given with a voice correction
or a collar correction.
By definition a collar cannot be called a training collar unless it is able
to administer a correction to a dog.
In my opinion there is a huge misunderstanding of training collars
used on dogs today. As far as I am concerned there are only 4 kinds of
training collars.
1. A flat leather or nylon buckle collar
2. A prong collar
3. A dominant dog collar
4. A remote trainer (electric collar)
Some soft dogs only need correction from a flat collar (refer to my
article on hard and soft dogs). In fact, many soft dogs only need a voice
correction to make them hit the ground and crawl on their belly.
When owners of soft dogs recognize the temperaments in their dog
they find that these dogs become easy dogs to train. Unfortunately
most novice trainers can’t read temperament which results in over
correcting. This only results in nervous insecure dogs that submissively
urinate or worse show fear aggression.

Training Dogs
to Get
Along with
Horses
DVD is not a electric collar training DVD, I do cover the basics and
explain a few safe training steps on how we start a dog we have with
this problem. People with serious aggression problems may need this
DVD along with the DVD I did titled, “Remote Collar Training For the
Pet Owner.”
The DVD has the following chapters:
1. Introduction
2. Introducting Puppies to Horses
3. Equipment
4. Introducing to the Remote Collar
5. Desensitizing Dogs to Horses
6. Dogs that Chase Horses
7. Groundwork for the Down
8. Riding with Your Dog
9. Appi Camps in Holland
10. Out Takes
We prefer to train our dogs (and horses) by first developing a bond with
the dog and then using that bond of trust to guide the dog into the
behavior we desire. Once an dog has learned to trust and respect us as
their pack leader training is always quicker and easier.
This DVD is a “Dog Training DVD” not a “Horse Training DVD”. For one
reason or another some horses are dog aggressive. It is not unheard of
for a horse to kill a dog (this recently happened to a relative of one of
our secretaries). While the end result of our training may help to get
your horse used to being around dogs, it’s not the intent of this DVD to
train dog aggressive horses.
In closing I like to tell people that dog training is not breed specific, it’s
temperament and drive specific. That means that our methods work
for all breeds of dogs.

aggressive to horses or they have such a strong prey drive they can’t
seem to stop themselves from chasing the horses.
This DVD will help provide those people with enough information to
find a solution to their problem. There are so many variables in this work
that there is no SINGLE training method that can be used on every dog.
Dogs are pack animals. Some dogs simply need to understand that the
horses are part of the family pack. Once this is accomplished the dogs
accept the horse as a pack member the problems go away. My DVD
explains how to accomplish this.
Some dogs simply lack proper obedience training. While my “Basic
Dog Obedience” DVD covers this I explain how important proper
obedience is in this DVD. These people are advised to get our “Basic
Dog Obedience” DVD along with this DVD.
Other DVDs to consider to better train your dog to
get along with horses:
Some dogs are just aggressive to horses. They simply don’t like them
and will try and attack any horse they see. The way to train with dogs
like this is to learn how to control the dog. No one can take the hate out
of these kinds of dogs but we can teach the dog that we are the pack
leader and it must control it’s aggression or suffer the consequences.
These dogs often need to be trained with a remote collar. While this

$ 120.00
There are so many poor quality suits being sold I have decided to again
import and sell suits. My suits are being made to my specifications in
Belgium. I have not seen a suit sold in this country that comes close to
the quality of workmanship in this product.
The craftsmen who make my suits have been willing to work with
me to come up with a suit that is designed for police work. A police
department has different needs than sport people. The average helper
in police work does not have a lot of experience in doing helper work.
We have added additional protection for these people.
The bite suit is made of 65% cotton and 35% nylon. The inside is felt
lined. There is extra padding in the arm pit area, across the back, and in
the legs. This has resulted in about 10 more pounds of protection than
suits sold by American suppliers.
If you go to Europe you will find there are many different styles of bite
suits. There are suits for the French Ring Sport, the KNPV sport, and
even IPO suits. My suits are designed for police service and personal
protection training. My suit provides maximum protection in the arms,
shoulders, and upper back along with the legs.

This arm has a bite bar to facilitate working with young adult dogs.
This is the type of arm that is used in Schutzhund trials. The arm does
not come with a sleeve cover which is sold separately. If you are new to
protection training, this sleeve will not be used on dogs that are younger
than 12 months old. Normally a dog has to be at least 12 months for his
head and jaw to be big enough to go around this sleeve. The Jute Sleeve
Covers are to protect and add life to your Hard Arm. It is better to buy
a new cover than a new Hard Arm. This Hard Arm is of superior quality
and construction. Imported from Europe.

The entire leather jacket and sleeve are fully lined. The sleeve can be
worn on either arm for a right or left hand helper. Schutzhund rules
state that the helper must wear a jacket and have non-biting arm
covered while doing the helper work in a trial. The lining pulls the heat
and moisture away from ones body. Throughout the jacket construction
all seams are double stitched for strength and durability and is also
professionally hand quilted. The front of the jacket has two closures, a
zipper and Velcro to make it secure.

Tugs are a must for building drive and focus in young & adult dogs. Top
trainers use them throughout the lives of their dogs. They can be used
as rewards in narcotics work, in obedience and tracking. Young pups
are introduced to tugs when their mouth is big enough to grip. As they
grow they will need larger diameter tug.

Synthetic Bite Bar

have this item. The Mini Bite Pillows are made of synthetic body bite suit

Sport Basic G3 (http://leerburg.com/sportbas.htm)
The new Sport Basic G3 has 10 levels of momentary and continuous and
a new buzz sound. The collar has the ability to control up to three dogs
by simply purchasing additional receivers. The new aversive buzz sound
can be used to condition the dog so that it responds in many instances
to the buzz sound without using any electrical stimulation. The Sport
Basic G3 is very simple to operate and is a perfect entry level product.
Sport Upland G3 (http://leerburg.com/sportup.htm)
The new collar has 10 levels of momentary and continuous and the
ability to control up to 3 dogs whereas the Sport 65 only has 6 levels
of momentary and continuous and comes in only a single dog model.
Given that many hunters use more than one dog to hunt, this new
multi-dog function should be a big hit with customers. Don’t forget
that this multi-dog function is “customer expandable” in the field by
simultaneously pressing and holding a button on the transmitter and a
button on the additional receiver for a few seconds.
Sport Combo G3 (http://leerburg.com/sportcom.htm)
The new collar has up to 20 levels of momentary and continuous and a
tone. Sport Combo is field expandable up to 3 dogs. One of the really
nice features of this product is that the customers can tell exactly what
operating mode they are in, what dog they are controlling and what
stimulation level is being used by simply looking at the dials on the
transmitter. Also, all the customer has to do to change operating modes,
dogs and/or stimulation levels is move a switch.

1” Leather Collar
xs
$ 110.00
The Bark Limiter is much smaller, lighter and still the most effective and
reliable bark collar on the market. It provides very gentle but persuasive
control of excessive barking. The Bark Limiter can be worn by even the
smallest dog. The Bark Limiter dimensions are approximately 1.8” wide,
1” deep and 1” high, without contact points installed. The Tri-Tronic®
“Bark Limiter” is the most effective way to stop a dog’s annoying bark.
The collar is activated by vibrations from the dog’s neck and not outside
sounds. Barking is usually eliminated within 24 hours of putting the
collar on your dog. Change the stimulation level with the press of a
button. The “Bark Odometer” tells you how many times the dog barked
since the collar was turned on. Five different stimulation levels. Short
and long changeable contact points are included. Waterproof userreplaceable CR2 lithium batteries are included. Replacement batteries
can be purchased at most retailers. One year warranty.

I call prong collars “Power Steering for Dogs.” A prong is probably the
most misunderstood training tool there is. So many people take one
look at it and say “Oh!!! I could NEVER use that on MY dog!!!” Then when
I explain how it’s used and why it’s used they call back and say “ED, THIS
IS THE GREATEST THING!” When a prong collar is used in training, the
handler must first realize that a dog who required a level 8 correction
before will now, with a prong, probably require a level 2 or level 3
Micro

Neck Size 15”- 21”
Neck Size 17”- 23”
Neck Size 19”- 25”
correction. So a strong dog with too much drive for a small person to
handle is now easily controllable without a lot of effort. If you are a new
Schutzhund trainer or a police service dog handler, you are going to
need a prong collar. The advantage of the quick release is the use of the
clamp to open and close versus opening a link to remove or put on the
collar. The stainless steel quick release is a snap release, and the chrome
plated quick release is a clamp release.

How to Fit a
Prong Collar
The correct position for a prong collar is to sit right behind the
dog’s ears and up under the jaw line. This is showen in the photo
below.
http://www.leerburg.com/fit-prong.htm
I train dogs with prong collars. There are very few dogs that I would not
train with a prong collar. I recommend them to new dog owners, new
trainers and people who own dogs with behavioral problems. While
some think a prong looks nasty the fact is they are far more humane
than a normal choke collar.
The biggest problem with prong collars is that new dog owners don’t
know how to put them on, how to size them, or how to have their dog
wear them. This article will address these issues.
Normal choke collars need to be ordered by length (i.e. 22 inches long
etc.) Prong collars on the other hand are ordered by weight: extra heavy,
heavy, light, etc. They all come in a standard length which is adjusted to
fit the neck of the dog by removing or adding links to the collar.
Prong collars are meant to be put on and taken off before and after daily
training sessions. Unlike a choke collar that is often left on the dog all
the time (in some cases this can be a dangerous practice).
A common problem new trainers have is they don’t remove enough
links to get the correct snug fit. When that happens the collar hangs
down on the dogs neck which results in the collar not working the way
that it was designed.
This photo below demonstrates a prong collar that was not
properly sized for the dog. The collar is too loose and riding too
far down on the dog’s neck. It should be up where I have drawn
the yellow line.

A perfect safety procedure to use along with a prong collar is a
dominant dog collar. I offer this advise to ALL those trainers who
use prong collars.
It is not unheard of for a mistake to happen and a prong collar
comes apart when you need it the most. By having a dominant
dog collar on the dog at the same time as the prong this will
never be a problem. Simply attach the clip on the leash to both
the prong and the ring on the dominant dog collar. This is shown
in the photo below.

Leerburg’s amish leather products
Leerburg’s
Amish Leather
Products
Leashes, Collars, Harnesses,
& Tracking Lines
Certain areas of Wisconsin have large Amish communities. Over the past
25 years I have developed a relationship with an Amish harness maker
named Amos, who builds all of my leather products.
Amos and his sons are perfectionists. They take pride in what they do
and appreciate the fact that I give them all of my leather business. While
they are farmers and they work the land, they use my Leerburg leather
work to help with their cash flow.
In the beginning, they use to make horse harnesses and raise chickens
that were sold in Chicago. As time passed and our business grew, they
stopped building these horse harnesses and they sold their chicken
business to a neighbor. Now they only farm and make Leerburg dog
training products.
The quality of Amos’s workmanship has resulted in our reputation for
the finest leather leashes in the world. When I go to Europe to film some
of my training DVD’s my dog training friends over there always ask me
to bring them a supply of our Leerburg Leashes.
I have a couple of Amos’s leashes that are over 20 years old. They are as
strong as the day I got them and as pliable as a wet noodle. If you buy
a Leerburg leash and take care of it (don’t leave it out in the rain) it will
last for many years.
I would include a photo of myself and Amos but the Amish do not allow
posed photos. Amos and I have discussed this. He knows people snap
photos of them without asking and there is nothing they can do about
this, but he asked that I not take his picture.
Amos’ sewing machine, notice how it has foot peddles.
Amos’ horse and buggy
Over the past 25 years, we here at Leerburg have built a reputation for
selling the finest leather dog leashes, the finest leather harnesses, and
the finest leather dog collars in the world.
Our Leerburg leather products are strong enough to last a lifetime,
but soft enough to be comfortable right out of the box. If you go to
Petsmart or one of the dog food warehouses, and feel their leather
products, you will find that their leather is thin and stiff. The leather in
our dog leashes is thick, pliable and soft. It’s comfortable on your hands
and results in better training for your dog.
There are two reasons that our leather dog training products are as
good as they are: 1.) The leather we use. 2.) The Amish harness makers
who put our products together.
Where we get our leather, and how it is tanned, is our trade secret. We
order 60 to 70 sides of beef leather at one time. These sides come out of
Canada where some of the beef hides are thicker. We need this thicker
leather for our 6 ft. dog leashes.
The leather is shipped to our tanning company here in the United States
where it’s processed. The reason our leather is so soft is because of
the way it is tanned. Our tanner uses a mixture of tallow and oils that
other tanners don’t use. While this is important, the key to the leather’s
softness is how the hides are dried.
Once our hides have been oiled they are stretched on frames and put in
a large room to air dry. This process takes up to 3 weeks. Other tanners
run their hides through big heated dryers where their hides dry in a
day or two.

Muzzles
Dominant Dog Collars Jafco Plastic Muzzles
vs. Muzzles
Plastic Muzzle
Plastic Rottweiler Muzzle
Jafco Plastic Muzzles
Many times people make the decision to use a muzzle on a dog when
in fact they should be using a dominant dog collar and a muzzle or in
some cases just a dominant dog collar. Muzzles often just cover a dogs
problems and do nothing to solve an aggression problem. These people
need to learn the difference.
Our dominant dog collars are designed specifically to deal with
handler aggressive or dog aggressive dogs. If you have a problem
with aggressive or dominant dogs I would recommend that you go to
my article section and read what I have written about Dominant and
Aggressive dogs at: http://leerburg.com/articles.htm. I also recommend
that you get my DVD on Dealing with Dominant and Aggressive Dogs.
http://leerburg.com/301.htm
More dogs are put to sleep every day for aggression problems than I
care to think about. I am the first to agree that some dogs are beyond
saving, but many of these dogs could have been retrained and saved.
Killing a dog should ALWAYS be a last resort. Using these collars can and
will make the difference between having to put a dog down or ending
up with a dog the owner can live with.
I recommend that you go to my web site and read the article on ”How to
Fit the Leerburg Dominant Dog Collar” at: www.leerburg.com/746.htm,
and the DVD on “Dealing with Dominant and Aggressive Dogs” explains
in detail how to use this collar and what dogs to use it on.

I personally prefer to tattoo my pups versus putting a computer chip
in them. There are too many kinds of computer chips, and each needs
its own chip reader. Anyone can look in the ear of a dog and see that
it is tattooed. If anything, I would recommend both a chip and tattoo.

tells the breeder exactly what needs to be done during the birth and
throughout the first 8 weeks of a pup’s life. Ed Frawley (the owner of
Leerburg Kennel) has bred German Shepherds since 1978. He has bred
over 350 litters. You will benefit from the practical experience he has
gained in whelping this many litters.
This video takes you through the trials of dealing with sick puppies. It
shows exactly how to tube feed a weak puppy and it provides a medical
program to follow for the entire litter.
If you thought breeding dogs was a simple matter you may change your
mind after watching this video. We constantly have people tell us that
they watch this video before, during, and after a litter is whelped.

®
as well as healthy fats, protein and fiber, all the fuel dogs need to lead
a healthy life.
Our products are guaranteed 100% human-food-grade because they are
not produced in a pet food plant. We even have permission to say so on
our labels. They are made in an FDA approved, human-food-producing
facility in Southern California, that makes the very same foods you eat.
We are pleased to introduce a unique and innovative approach to canine
nutrition: delicious, nutritious, wholesome, colorful meals, ready to
prepare and serve at home.
Verve, Force and Embark are gently dehydrated without extrusion or
intense heat processing, to remove only the water and preserve the
vital nutrients that are present in the raw ingredients. These are the first
ever, prepare-at-home diets to offer complete convenience, nutritional
balance and exceptional quality and value.
These are synergistic blends, bursting with naturally occurring enzymes,
vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and photonutrients,
Our foods contain absoutely no “Red Flag” ingredients: no by-products,
added salt or sugar, chemical preservations, artifical colors or flavors and
no beet pulp, rice, wheat, corn, or soy. These are common allergens for
dogs and can cause GI Upset, dry, itchy skin, hair loss or dullness, lack of
energy, chronic ear problems and chewing at the feet.
All three recipes contain the following human-grade vitamin-mineral
premix: Tricalcium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement,
Vitamin E Supplement, Iron Amino Acid Chelate, Zinc Amino Acid
Chelate, Potassium Iodide, Potassium Chloride, Copper Amino Acid
Chelate.
One cup of dehydrated food will hydrate to make about 1 lb. of fresh
food. A 4 lb. size holds about 17 dry-cups and makes about 17 lbs. of
fresh food. A 10 lb. size holds about 43 dry-cups and makes about
43 lbs. of fresh food.

We at Leerburg® Kennels have changed the way we feed our dogs. Over
the past 25 years of breeding and raising dogs I became more and more
concerned about health issues that I saw in my dogs. I believe that we are
what we eat and when I researched the ingredients of commercial dog
food, I made the decision to feed an all natural diet. By that I mean that
I only feed human grade ingredients and I fortify meat and vegetables
with human grade supplements. The results have been dramatic. My
dogs are healthier, they are more muscular, and have more energy. There
has been a dramatic improvement in the temperament of the dogs.

calls’ alerted him to the dangers. Together with a

This photo was taken in South Lebanon. The photo

Platoon. Norway was the only battalion to use dogs
in the line of duty. They had 10 patrol dogs, 1 bomb/
explosives dog and 3 narcotic dogs. The patrol dogs
were GSDs, and their job was to go in front of the
night patrols with their handlers as “point man,” to
detect personnel ahead of or on the sides of the
patrols. This task they accomplished time and time
again. Then earned the motto: “We Own the Night.”
The dogs are trained in Norway at The Norwegian

BREEDING PROGRAM
Leerburg® Kennel
Breeding Program
German
Shepherd &
Belgian
Malinois
Puppies
Here at Leerburg® we breed German Shepherd Dogs and Belgian
Malinois (under the kennel name Kaiserhaus). We pride ourselves in
breeding dogs with correct structure, good drives and excellent nerves.
If you buy a dog from working bloodlines, you can do with it what you
please. Our goal is to consistently produce puppies that have the drives,
nerves and temperament to become police service dogs, search & rescue
dogs, personal protection dogs, or dog sport competitors. Our dogs also
make great family dogs, which is one of the MOST important jobs any
dog can have.
As a breeder, you must choose certain traits to focus on in your breeding
program. Thirty years ago Ed chose to concentrate on sound nerves
and exceptional drives. It has been his life’s work studying working
German Shepherd bloodlines. He has traveled the world to study
these bloodlines and was one of only two Americans allowed into East
Germany on DDR dog business.
Cindy Rhodes manages the Leerburg and Kaiserhaus breeding programs.
She has trained and competed in AKC obedience and Schutzhund since
the mid-eighties with several different breeds of dogs. Cindy was also an
all breed dog groomer for over 15 years, worked as a vet tech and has
ran obedience classes for pet owners. She had a small breeding program
for working bloodline European Dobermans, German Shepherds and
Malinois from 1989 to 2003 under the Kaiserhaus Kennel name, before
moving to Wisconsin.
Please visit our website for photos,
testimonials,
and litter availability.
www.leerburg.com/knl1.htm
Cindy’s favorite aspect of managing the breeding programs here is
spending time with the puppies and evaluating the potential in each
individual puppy. It’s extremely rewarding to match that pup with a new
owner and follow the progress as the dog grows up.
Our reputation speaks for itself. Read our customer testimonials on
our website at http://leerburg.com/litters1.htm. These are unsolicited
comments from people who have purchased Leerburg dogs. We offer
lifetime guidance and support for you and your new dog, as well as
offering a 50% discount on all of our training videos for the first 6
months after the purchase of your new puppy or dog.
All of our puppies are selection tested before we place them in new
homes. After 30 years and over 350 litters we are confident in our ability
to pick the right puppy for each individual.

This video shows the foundation of grip

The great part of this foundation training
is that all of this work can be done without

Until now there has never been a well done
training video that teaches pet owners the
concepts of how to train with an electric
collar. When used properly, remote collars
are one of the most humane training tools.
This DVD is not specific to one brand of
collar and applies to any shock collar.

There is a big difference between how one
should raise a working puppy and how pet
owners raise their pets. Working puppies are
expected to look at their world with more
self confidence. This is not a bite training
video. It is a video teaching people how we
raise our personal pups here at Leerburg.
