THE CHICAGO DOG COACH: STOP TAXING DOG OWNERS

Ami Moore, The Memphis Dog Coach, Strongly Urges Dog and Cat Owners to Avoid Licensing Their Pets In The United States

Moore, one of the nation’s top dog training experts believes it is urgent to discuss the topic of dog and cat licensing in America. Many dogs in the US go unlicensed. Ami Moore questions if that can create serious problems for both dogs and dog owners

[ Chicago IL – October 9, 2014 ]  A recent article on the KCRW website in Los Angeles addressed the problem of unlicensed dogs in the LA area. The professed benefits of licensing pet dogs and cats are to provide the means to reunite owners with lost pets, help curb disease and reduce stray pet populations. Ami Moore, a Chicago dog training expert widely known as ‘The Memphis Dog Coach’, believes this issue may be looked at in another way.

“I believe that mandatory licensing of dogs is an unfair tax on dog lovers. I do not believe that the government has the right to make you pay a tax for owning a dog or cat. Another occurrence that I see is that cities will make you pay an increased fee if your dog or cat is intact, yet current research shows that dogs that are left intact, the way Nature intended, live longer, are healthier and have greater resistance against cancer and glandular diseases,” says Ami the Memphis Dog Coach. “I think the government needs to stay out of my pocketbook and out of my dogs panties.”

“I am also against penalties for vets if the don’t release the names of dog owners and their dogs to governments. I believe that what happens between a vet and a dog owner is private and the medical professional cannot and should not be compelled to give lists of client’s names to the government.”

“I am sick of the current ‘Nanny-State’ mindset of our country where every act of personal freedom and pleasure is controlled and taxed. If people want to donate to shelter and rescues, then let them do that instead of paying a tax on their pet. I have not seen any evidence that licensing contributes in better health or welfare of either owned dogs or dogs in pounds or shelters.”

The Memphis Dog Coach, Ami Moore, CMT, CMVT is a leading expert in dog psychology. Her much acclaimed book, ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ was part of the curriculum at the Vancouver Island College Of Natural Wellness.

After attending three dog training schools Ami Moore started dog training in Chicago. She was awarded the Chicagoland Tails award for best dog trainer in Chicago and has been honored by various charities for her work with rehabilitating aggressive dogs. Ms. Moore also created the famous Guerrilla Group Obedience classes, and the ‘Fido Fat Camp’ concept so that loving pet owners could holistically increase their dog’s health and wellness with exercise, natural food and psychological rehabilitation techniques. Ami Moore offered one of the first Chicago dog yoga or Doga classes in the city of Chicago.

She developed a three-tiered dog training and dog behavior management system based upon Alphatude, Amiability and Activity to balance the mind and body of the Chicago urban dog and dog owner which is explained in detail in her book. ‘The Alphatude Attitude’ is available on her website atwww.memphispuppytraining.com.

CHICAGO DOG TRAINER: HOUSE TRAINING YOUR PUPPY

AGE COUNTS IN LARGE AMOUNTS WHEN POTTY TRAINING YOUR PUPPY

It is important to understand that the skill of house training your dog  cannot be effective until your Chicago puppy is at least sixteen weeks old.   The Chicago Dog Trainer, says, “A dog does not have any control over his bowel and bladder muscles until this age.”  

If on the other hand, your dog is an older puppy (more than five months of age) or an adult dog, you have about thirty days to assist your dog in mastering these important foundation dog training skills before these accidents become habits.

When you go on a walk with your dog you and your dog are on the same team.  It is the dog’s job to follow you closely; never too far ahead and never too far behind.

 You must teach your dog to turn when you turn, sit when you stop and relax quietly while you talk to your friends or have your coffee.

 

Chicago Dog Training: Training the Fearful Dog

534443_303238516412225_183608175_nDogs who act fearful, nervous and insecure around people and other dogs, were usually not socialized when they were young.

“Some dogs have a genetic component that causes them to be more reactive than other dogs.” says The Memphis Dog Coach.

Puppies that are removed from their litter before they were 8 weeks old never learned how to “be” around members of their own kind.

Without the guidance and imprinting  of their dam or mother, many times these pups often grow up to be fearful, nervous, adult dogs without proper social skills.

Because this damage occurs during a dog’s formative period which is birth to six months of age, it often takes a long time to resolve, but it can be done.

Be patient and mindful that your dog’s mental and emotional rehabilitation will be a process and  not a quick fix.

CHICAGO DOG TRAINING TESTIMONIAL: NO MORE DOG AGGRESSION

Hi Ami,

 

How is everything going?  I have been waiting to contact you until the weather was getting nicer as our next session will be outside.  If you have any openings for the latter part of April on a Saturday that will be perfect.

I had tried to post a picture on your facebook page of Momo & Yuko waiting patiently for their food, but I kept getting an error.  Here’s the pic:

 


That’s steak and eggs in the bowls, a delectable treat that they are waiting to be allowed to eat.  Feeding time used to be a free for all with the dogs jumping on us and almost knocking us over when we put the bowls down.  Not any more, thanks to you.

 

Also, I wanted to let you know that we took the dogs over to visit our extended family on Easter (lots of people).  Our dogs are used to my mother’s large dog, but my sister was there with her young, very big dog.  We thought there might be some growling/aggression issues, so we brought a couple bottle bombs with us – just in case.  We kept our dogs on their leashes sitting next to me, and they were very good — one of my sisters even commented that they were very well behaved.  The young aggressive dog growled a few times & I would shake the bottle & growling would cease.  The dog kept her distance.  It was nice to be able to take our dogs somewhere that they didn’t act like fools.

 

Please let us know when we can get together next.

Three Easy Steps To Stop Aggressive Dog Behavior

THREE EASY STEPS FOR PREVENTING AGGRESSIVE DOG BEHAVIOR

Aggressive dog behavior is a serious problem.  It is important to have several lines of defense in place to construct a dog that is balanced in energy, forgiving towards people and inhibits biting behavior when under stress.

The first aspect of the three easy steps to reduce dog aggression is to inhibit the instinct for biting, The dog must be actively taught to never bite people, no matter what the provocation or the temptation. Dogs must be trained to reduce the pressure of their bite with appropriate play so that they develop a “soft” mouth.

The second line of attack is to use obedience training to increase the dog’s knowledge of human words and to increase the owners ability to direct the dogs actions in a unusual situation.

Thirdly, there is dog psychology wherein the unbalanced temperament of the aggressive dog is rehabilitated so that the shy dog becomes calm, the fearful dog become bold and the hyper dog becomes centered.

 

 

 

Chicago Dog Aggression: The Shy Dog

THE AGGRESSIVE SHY DOG

Dogs that are uneasy with human closeness and abrupt (but normal human gestures) feel that they need to defend themselves or/and protect their possessions. This dog acts with fearsome aggression to keep people at a distance.

This need for defensive aggression stems from an underlying lack of confidence, trust and love of people. These quivering, nervous, anxious dogs will bite at the drop of a hat. These dogs have families that walk on eggshells in fear that one normal movement may set the dog off the charts.

These shy dogs tend to have a collection of people, places and things that they dislike such as: loud noises, men wearing glasses, mothers with strollers, toddling tots, tykes on trikes, fat people, black people, brown people, white people, people who smell of cigarettes, people that smell like alcohol and so on.  This is a dog that will bite when you grab its collar, or reach out to pat it’s head. This type of dog can be one of the most dangerous to own since in most cases they look soft and sweet–until they are triggered.
