In this post I want to explain two very important facts about your dog...
The first is about whether or not you really need to be the pack leader.
And the second is whether the pack leader is aggressive in their behavior. For example, is it necessary to beat your chest, shout and smack your dog
in order to become the top dog.
The answer to these two questions could transform the relationship you have with your beloved companion. Almost instantly, and forever.
Question 1. Do I really need to be the pack leader?
Lets look at the facts…
Dog are pack animals. There are leaders and followers. You can’t change that. It is simply how dogs work… and it works very well.
The pack leaders make the decisions and the followers follow. Simple.
In the wild, dogs are pack animals. They have descended from the wolf, which is a pack animal. And what most people don't realize is even in your home
You form a pack. Sometimes there are other members of the pack, maybe children, more than one dog, even a cat…
The fact remains that dogs will view all these beings as members of the pack, and the pack leader in their eyes must make all the big decisions.
Now in many homes there are dogs who are just too happy to please. They simply do as you ask without any questioning. They are easy to train and the
Owners are convinced that it is all due to how good they are as owners.
You may even know people like this. They have this amazing, easy, placid dog and you can’t work out how because the owner doesn’t seem to do
Anything special. In fact, you may well be a bit cheesed off that your dog causes you so much grief.
How can it be this way? Well, allow me to let you into a secret. The fact is this… It usually has nothing to do with how good the owners are… Some dogs
Are simply much easier to train others. That’s it!
Trust me… if you have an easy dog, then you can get away with so much – and many people do. They have a dog for years convinced that they are great
With dogs and know exactly what they are doing, always dishing out advice about how they do it when in reality they just have a very easy dog!
However, if you have a difficult, very smart, driven dog, then you have to know fully what you are doing and the messages that you are giving your dog. It is
Much more difficult to train these dogs if you do not know what you are doing. The secret to training these types of dogs is… to ensure that YOU are the
Pack leader in the home. Only then will they listen to you.
And the difference between these easy and difficult dogs has nothing to do with breeds. It's all about character and personality. You'll never be able to tell
Until they're in your home. Kind of sucks, hey!
But it makes sense now as to why you are struggling. It’s why you are constantly bribing your dog, battling with them. It's like trying to swim upstream…
The struggle never ends, they never give in, and you're exhausted. It's all because in your dog's mind you are not the pack leader… YET!
But hold on. Here's the good news... I can help.
You see if you are struggling… I can promise you that becoming the pack leader is the first thing you need to do. And I have just discovered a fantastic
A resource which shows you how to become the pack leader in the most amazing gentle way.
But let's discuss the next point before I tell you where this fantastic solution is…
2. Is the pack leader aggressive in their behavior?
The thing to realize is that the best pack leaders are calm and consistent. They are firm but fair, there is no screaming, no shouting, no hurting, and no
Need for smacking. All those things that used to be associated with being the pack leader many years ago are old school approaches.
Old school dog training used to teach that you needed to physically dominate your dog. It involved a lot of force and confrontation with your dog which
Would often turn ugly.
The best dog training is where people are taught how to actually win their dogs mind in a calm and gentle way, so that their dogs accept them as the pack
leader through choice, not fear. This new dog training method is set to revolutionize the way we work with and train our dogs in the home.
By learning how our dogs see the world we can then adjust our behavior to communicate clearly to them in a way they understand. It's crucial that we give
Them the right messages, rather than simply applying human psychology to a dog. Lets face it, we would never apply fish or bird psychology to a dog, so
Why do we always apply human psychology?
We are primates, evolved from the apes, but your dog is a canine evolved from the wolves and there are some subtle but crucial differences!
When you understand your dog's mind and where they are coming from there is no need for fear or aggression in training… if you are struggling then the
Chances are that your dog does not see you as the pack leader.

The Poodle is commonly acknowledged to be the most wisely intelligent of all members of the canine race. There is a general belief that he is a fop, whose time is largely occupied in personal embellishment, and that he requires a great deal of individual attention in the matter of his toilet. It may be true that to keep him in exhibition order and perfect cleanliness his owner has need to devote more consideration to him than is necessary in the case of many breeds; but in other respects he gives very little trouble, and all who are attached to him are consistent in their opinion that there is no dog so intensely interesting and responsive as a companion. His qualities of mind and his acute powers of reasoning are indeed so great that there is something almost human in his attractiveness and his devotion. His aptitude in learning is never denied, and many are the stories told of his marvelous talent and versatility.
Not merely as a showman's dog has he distinguished himself. He is something more than a mountebank of the booths, trained to walk the tight rope and stand on his head. He is an adept at performing tricks, but it is his alertness of brain that places him apart from other animals.
The profuse and long coat of this dog has the peculiarity that if not kept constantly brushed out it twists up into little cords which increase in length as the new hair grows and clings about it. The unshed old hair and the new growth entwined together thus become distinct rope-like cords. Eventually, if these cords are not cut short, or accidentally torn off, they drag along the ground, and so prevent the poor animal from moving with any degree of comfort or freedom.
Corded Poodles are very showy, and from the remarkable appearance of the coat, attract a great deal of public attention when exhibited at shows; but they have lost popularity among most fanciers, and have become few in number owing to the obvious fact that it is impossible to make pets of them or keep them in the house. The reason of this is that the coat must, from time to time, be oiled in order to keep the cords supple and prevent them from snapping, and, of course, as their coats cannot be brushed, the only way of keeping the dog clean is to wash him, which with a corded Poodle is a lengthy and laborious process. Further, the coat takes hours to dry, and unless the newly washed dog be kept in a warm room he is very liable to catch cold. The result is, that the coats of corded Poodles are almost invariably dirty, and somewhat smelly.

Muzzle: Long (but not snipy) and strong not full in cheek; teeth white, strong, and level; gums black, lips black and not showing lippiness.

Nose: Black and sharp.
