Canine Intervention is now streaming on Netflix and it’s packed with helpful tips we can all use on our pups, no matter the breed or size! Here are the best 10 training tips we learned.

Despite sparking some controversy before its premiere on Netflix, Canine Intervention is streaming and is proving to be a hit with dog friends from all walks of life. Did you miss the controversies?

There were several dog trainers and owners who were calling for the cancelation of Jas Leverette’s Canine Intervention. What over? To be honest, even after watching one of the videos against the reality series (which you can check out HERE), I’m not quite sure.

I didn’t find that dog trainers had any issue with the use of prong collars and shock collars, which is completely understandable. But unless I missed it completely, there is absolutely no use of either collar in Canine Intervention. Trainer Jas only promoted slip collars, and never suggested them to be used forever, only while training. And aren’t slip collars used by groomers?

Needless to say, I didn’t find a problem with the show. On the contrary, as a new puppy mom, I found myself taking several notes as Jas shared many tips and tricks for successfully training happy and obedient dogs.

10 best training tips we learned watching Canine Intervention

Find your dog’s motivation: Training is easier to do when you know what motivates your dog. Does the pup prefer playing, new toys, or treats, for example. As the show puts it, “toys, treats, or praise put dogs in a dopamine state and increase their ability to learn.”

Two-second rule: Jas suggests corrections be done within two seconds to have an effect, so you really have to keep a close eye on your dog so that you can correct them quickly.

Fear-based aggression tip: If you have a dog who reacts aggressively when scared, desensitize the dog to strangers. Episode 1 “Lady Macbeth” offers more tips on this.

Approaching new dogs: Never approach a dog or pet them without first asking the owner. This rule is very well known, but episode 1 “Lady Macbeth” reminds us just how important this rule is.

Proper correction: Pull on the leash and say “no” to properly correct your dog. And remember the two-second rule.

Using a different language: Here’s a fun one! Canine Intervention points out that you can train your dog in a different language (Jas uses a lot of German) to prevent a stranger assailant from taking control of your dog.

Clean up: You may believe, as I did, that having your dog’s toys around the house is normal and fine. But Jas suggests picking up excess toys to prevent distractions when training, this also raises the value of toys as they can be used as rewards.

Puppies need their mom: Here at Dog O’Day, we are all about adopting, not shopping! However, if you do buy please remember puppies need their mom for as long as possible! Puppies that are taken from their litter too soon will have social issues as episode 5, “Blue,” shares.

Stubborn dogs: With stubborn dogs, you’ll need to practice repetition when training, and have a  ton of patience. Watch episode 6, “Lost and Found Dogs,” for more on this.

Anxiety in dogs: Dogs with high anxiety need extra praise. Be extra kind, cuddly, and attentive with these dogs to boost their confidence.
