Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
That said, I was eager to read the news article titled “The Belgian Malinois: The dog the White House didn’t use on fence-jumping intruder” written by Gail Sullivan of the Washington Post. With the early morning sunrise glow as my reading light, I sat down and eagerly read this article. The footage and links in the Washington Post article show and point to “trainers” using abusive shock collars, pronged collars and choke chains. These are just a few of the statistics and claims that caught my wandering eye on a cursory morning skim. I’ve not seen a trainer with his level of experience and ability in my almost 20 years of practice in South Florida. Thank you Russell for your dedication and compassion for training & helping homeless dogs. Russell is not only one of my dearest friends, but the guru of dog training, behavior and all things dog! You are so impressive; I cannot believe how much you know about dogs and how fast the dogs are learning. What an amazing change you have made in our lives and the lives of our little Pekinese, Lulabelle!!


Belgian Malinois are fast, very fast, and there may be some who can sprint 30+ mph, however most run closer to a sustained 25 mph.
This is not to single out a specific newspaper but to focus on the systemic problem affecting media and journalists today. It was a well-meaning article detailing out the secret service and the dogs that protect the White House, but strewn with inaccuracies and exaggerations.
In Gail’s defense she probably thought she could trust some of her sources because she cited the U.S. This may be pedantic but the higher speeds are more of a sprint not a sustained running speed. After a few sessions with our first trainer we knew that an electric collar was not the way we wanted to achieve basic obedience for our highly intelligent, energetic, and sensitive Vizsla. Department of Defense which is also scarily listing incorrect information on their web site.
The bite force is far under 1,400 pounds per square inch and would be closer to 200-300 pounds per square inch for a Belgian Malinois. After just one session with Russell we were so relieved to learn about his approach to training and just the overall positive energy he brought into our home.


You really shouldn’t believe most articles you read without double and triple checking the sources and facts regardless if it’s coming from Fun Paw Care or The Washington Post. Please comment below on your thoughts about journalist integrity and the state of the industry.
We are amazed with the progress we have made with our now 7 month old Vizsla and look forward to continue to channel his intelligence and energy in positive ways with guidance from Russell. And just in case you were wondering, NO, a “Pit Bull” dog does not have a locking mechanism (lockjaw) a myth that is spread by many uninformed people. There are few barriers to entry and very low cost (if any) to ascertain correct science and accurate information.
