Achellies, making the rounds at Home Depot this morning. A loose training day were the watch word of the day was 'socilization. Achilies is seven months old now. Showing no problems in this area whatsoever. Never hurts to concentrate on this stuff now and again to be sure of how he is developing.. He's a lady's man that's for sure.. '

A train wreck is right.. This article does a pretty good job of letting you see the situation we are in right now, Dammed if you do, Dammed if you dont! https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-election-is-a-train-wreck/2016/08/15/ab1fe1ee-62e7-11e6-8b27-bb8ba39497a2_story.html?utm_term=.692c2d31edc2
People have argued that Donald Trump is morally unfit for office. The problem is that Hillary Clinton is also morally unfit.

Since the article was written/published by the Main Stream Media, they are continuing to reinforce the idea that you have ONLY TWO CHOICES.

This could be the year that a third party candidate will have the best chance of winning in decades. Millions of voters are #NeverTrump. Millions of voters are #NeverHillary. Millions more are #NeverTrumpOrHillary. That gives a third party candidates a pretty good head start. Mix in a few million former Sanders supporters.

The next, and biggest, thing to consider is the 66% of registered voters that don't vote *because they don't like the idea of picking the lesser of two evils." If any of the third party candidates can get noticed by the MSM (it took Bernie Sanders a few months of SRO stadium appearances before he got noticed), that could be the turning point.

If a third party candidate splits the non-voters among the other third party candidates, and picks up the #Nevers votes, they could win in a landslide.

Dutch watching himself do protection work.. This was today's workout that we filmed. Dutch may be the only dog I know of that does class room study after the in the wild work out. You think he is criticing his grips? Hmm.. ;-)

Dutch working on his Agility Training

A few weeks ago we were out at Alderhorst Police K9 Kennels working Dutch through some agility.. Agility when done right, is all about building confidence in the dog. Dutch is a little over Nine months old now, and still progressing quite nicely.. Real proud of the way he is turning out so far. His new owner is going to be pleased I'm sure..

MF.

A very candid conversation with Jon Stewart about "Baby Man.". If your even thinking about voting for this man, you need to listen to this one..Or your having a bad day? Then all the more reason to grab a beer and listen to this one.. Enjoy!

Dogs and Dog Training is what I'm all about
Introduction
Professional dog trainer by trade for many years. Recently started  "Pro-Tech Dog Training" 

A little bit about who I am as a dog trainer.  Started training dogs when I was twelve years old, with my first dog an Australian Shepherd/ Dingo mix.  Professionally since I was sixteen, working with a well established training firm located in my home town of San Luis Obispo California. Trained my first GSD Sargeant,  who I trained through On Leash/Off leash Obedience &  Personal Protection all on my own. With helpers that I taught following Kohler's guard dog training book many years ago.. I have since traveled up and down the California coast training with some of the most well known training firms and trainers out there. Including Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer who I hung out with for a few years, even living at his place on 163rd for a year or so in LA. This is before he hit the big time and anyone even knew who he was..   I was also one of the first Professional Dog trainers representing Protection Dogs and there training on the net,  with one of the first Professional Protection Dog mailing list on the net, called "Protection-Dogs L."  The list represented the art and craft of training balanced and stable protection dogs to meet the consumers needs.. 

Since the seventy's when I first started training dogs, the world of dog training and the profession has changed tremendously.  I now use a baseboard of Positive Reinforcement and Marker Training for most all my training.   I would be what you call a "balanced dog trainer." Believing that every dog and owner are different and that the relationship with owner and dog are the most important aspect of any training program. I'm not what you would call a purist, using purely positive dog training methods, nor am I of the old school yank and crank trainers.  I truly believe that keeping an open mind, having as many tools and tricks in my tool bag as possible, Is the only way to approach the art of dog training today.   Knowing that to be good at my craft, I have to always be reaching to learn more, I'm  always looking to learn and grow.  Knowing full well that the good ones never stop reaching and never claim to know it all.  I am constantly striving to learn more, always in a constant search for more knowledge.   Learning never stops in my line of work. Right when you think you know it all, there is surely some one or something else that will show you, your wrong!    
Bragging rights
Started training dogs when I was twelve. Hung out with and was good friends with Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer before any one even knew who he was. Had one of the first professional Protection Dog Training groups on the net.. Still alive and kicking after all these years..
