DOG MYTHS: What you Believe about dogs can come back to BITE  


Order Garrett's groundbreaking book DOG MYTHS: What you Believe about dogs can come back to BITE You! on Amazon.  

Dog Myths is unlike other training or behavior mod. books you've probably ever read!  Did you know that when a dog or pup rolls over and exposes his/her belly that this is NOT usually a Submissive gesture?  Were you aware that when a dog licks you that this is NOT the human equivalent of kissing?  A host of dog behavioral issues begin with the dog or puppy owner and what they believe.  We act on what we believe.  There is a plague at large in the dog training and pet industry in the world today, and it is these many dog myths and false beliefs so many well-meaning owners and professionals in the industry cling to.  One of the most shocking dog myths (that most everyone falls for) is that the addition of training and obedience means the subtraction of poor or manipulative behavior from the dog! 

I'm here to tell you now, mainstream dog training methods are woefully behind and our dogs are so adept socially that they can perform our "tricks" and "obedience" and still remain Aggressive, or Fearful, or Anxious, or Hyper, or Destructive, or Rude, or have any number of behavioral issues.  Instead of using Positive or Punitive Reinforcement, let's learn the actual dog languge and then we can adjust, for the benefit of both parties, any behavioral issue.  It can be much simpler than you think.  No bribery with food and no harsh handling required!

Click the link - Read the free sample and then order it for just $25.00 paperback or $4.99 (online version) for a potentially life-changing experience for you and your dog or puppy.  Personally, I'd hate to miss out on a healthy relationship where my dog can be calm and social because I skimped out on the price of a coffee!  Dog Myths will help you prevent, reverse, or eliminate most Any behavioral issue!!!



Garrett Stevens can teach you how to develop a Rewarding Relationship with your pup or dog based on Calm leadership and canine communication. We use natural calming techniques familiar to all canines.  We know how to get amazing results with the most challenging of canine issues.  We love dogs and will show you how to have a real relationship based on respect and trust and built on the natural calming movements that all canine society is based on.  There is often a disconnect between owners and their dogs because too many dog trainers and behaviorists make their training about something external (excessive bribery with food treats or, on the opposite end, harsh, over-board punishment, or just drugging the dog!  All those are extremes to be avoided in most cases!)  The relationship and real communication mixed with energy control is what is most important in the brain of your individual dog and in all canine society!  Garrett will calm, educate, and empower you, relax and change your dog, and get the household functioning smoothly!
