    • The Organic PuppyIntroductionWelcome to the wonderful world of dogs. Owning and raising a dog is such arewarding experience. But let’s be honest, dogs have a way of challenging us to ourwits end. There are times when most dogs owners want to throw up their hands andsay “I give up!” The dog has total control over the house. Soon, we find rescueorganizations burdened with many neglected and abused dogs. But there are timeswhen dog owners fall into a natural rhythm with dog living, it all get’s easier withtime. What’s the magic saying we all hear? “Never give up.” I can’t begin to tell youall the countless times when my dogs have given me a run for my money and I end upgoing home crying because my dog won’t listen to me. But, every good dog has a badday. I just had to cry my feelings out, sleep on it then come back ready to train thenext morning. Usually the next training day is better. We all have our challenges,dogs too.An important thing to remember about dogs is to keep an open mind when dealingwith your dog or new puppy. Just like people, not all dogs are the same. They eachhave their own learning curves and reward drives. While one dog may absolutelylove the ball, another may work better with food treats. Patience is crucial andpractice makes perfect.So I hope you enjoy this starter guide filled with good training tips, a guide in new dogownership. Or, you can use it to refresh your skills when it comes to your caninebest-friend. 4

    • The Organic Puppy PART II –Lead Naturally 40
    • The Organic PuppyLead NaturallyHow do you lead a dog naturally? The answer is simple,during playtime and with love! Puppies in the wild learntheir place in the pack during playtime; they wrestle,run, chase and soon figure out whose dominating who.It’s when one puppy is on top of the other, a submissionby the other puppy without aggression or fear. It’s allnatural, pure and simple. 41
    • The Organic PuppyHow to Establish Your Leadership:1. During playtime wrestle with your puppy a bit, be careful not to be overly aggressive.2. Carefully roll the pup onto his back or side; remember, it’s all part of the fun.3. Give lots of praise!4. Gently stop and hold him down to see if he calms down. If he begins to whimper, let him go and wait for the puppy to come back to you. When he does, play-wrestle and try to hold him down gently again. He will begin to get the idea gradually that you are the boss.5. Speak soothingly into his ear while you are holding him down. Use “Stay” and “Good-Boy.” You want to say this while you are in a good mood and because your energy is happy.6. Remember: Repetition is the best teacher! 42
    • The Organic PuppyHowever, not every dog has the same temperament.Some dogs are just naturally submissive while others areoverly energetic. So what can you do before you try thisexercise? Go on a brisk 15-20 minute walk first andthen try this exercise. Wear him out before he wearsyou out! 43
    • The Organic PuppyA Personal Story from Niccole Lee:“I had just arrived to my new duty station in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and was assigned towork with Military Working Dog Chico. Everyone in our military police department knewabout Chico. He was a bad dog who tried to bite anyone who came close to him. He eveninjured his previous handler during a training exercise. Everyone was so scared that theyquickly put him in his kennel with his training collar still on. Since I was new my supervisorsaid, “You can handle Chico now. Oh, and uh… you can’t leave him overnight with hischoke chain on. Go take it off.”‘What? Can you imagine the fear I felt knowing that this dog could attack me at any time?But to my surprise he allowed me into his kennel and take his choke chain off.‘Chico and I had only 30 days to get to know each other before we had to hit the groundrunning, to start working as K9 Police for the military base. So, I made it my mission to winChico’s love and respect. I gently walked Chico around while he led the way, letting himknow I respected his space. I gave him lots of hot dogs and I was sure to use a lot of praise.I brushed him everyday and gave him baths. He was my full responsibility.’ (continued on next page) 44
    • The Organic PuppyA Personal Story from Niccole Lee cont…‘Chico eventually figured out who I was and soon he let his guard down. Through ourplaytime, gentle wrestling, I would have him lay down onto his side and while I waspetting him I placed part of my upper body onto his upper body. Then I soothingly talkedinto his ear and told him that he was a good boy. We were both in a happy place and agood state of mind. Through my gentle way of handling him, Chico allowed me todominate him. I could feel him submitting; he relaxed his body and let out a deepbreath. I was being simply organic.’‘Chico’s demeanor and whole attitude towards otherpeople changed. Hardly anyone could believe thetransformation. He was now a happy healthy dog. For 2years we were partners on the road. And he is one of themain reasons why I have a solid passion for dogs today.” Pictured Right: Niccole with MWD Chico 45
