Is your dog ruling your life?
Let Mark German, America’s Dog Whisperer, show you how to be the leader of your pack!
America's Dog Whisperer, Mark German, MBA, is a man with a serious mission. Recently profiled on Good Morning, Arizona and the Pat McMahon Show, Mark is working to get the word out to all dog owners: There’s Hope!© He would like to bring this awareness to everyone who loves their dog but struggles with out-of-control behaviors like jumping, barking, lunging, aggression, and shyness. There is no dog Mark won’t work with – “as long as the owner is willing to change.” He believes that practicing a calm energy with your dog is the first step to taking back control. At his symposiums, he points to statistics that show most people give up their dogs because of behavior issues, and he would like to change that. Mark feels that if people treated their dogs, like…well dogs, most behavioral issues would subside. That’s not to say he thinks we shouldn’t be affectionate with our pets. Mark advises that owners follow The Four Essentials to a Stable Dog©. “I have clients who couldn't even have guests over to their house because of unruly dogs. They had to put the dogs in another room or outside. I can show people how to change that and get their lives back.” IT'S NOT HARD, JUST DIFFERENT!
Mark has been training owners and rehabilitating their dogs for over 16 years. “It’s all about the energy” is his mantra.
“It is frustrating to see people who work with dogs, obedience trainers, handlers, humane society employees, veterinarians and staff, and even some ‘behaviorists’, treat dogs in a way that is detrimental to the dog’s state of mind. It’s neither constructive nor necessary to get angry or mean with dogs. Nor is it necessary to sedate dogs or put dogs on "DOGGIE PROZAC"! That just covers up the issues. If your "trainer" or "veterinarian" cannot change the dog's behavior, then they should refer you to someone who CAN!
Leadership is about using one’s energy to stay in control, not man-handle a dog. We must remain calm and remember that we are always teaching our dogs our rules not training them.”
America’s Dog Whisperer, Mark German, MBA is available for private consultations, group demonstrations, and symposiums to help any organization learn how to rehabilitate and handle dogs properly. He also presents mini-seminars to teach children how to remain calm when faced with a stray or seemingly dangerous unsupervised dog.
