RED COLLAR DOG
The Red Collar Dog is an intelligent pedigree dog with outstanding intellectual and working qualities. Such a dog has inherited features - the ability to guard, search, protect its owner, his property. That means not only the essential presence of healthy aggression in the dog and incredible intelligence. But also in the ability to search. The search is not just for things but to warn the owner of the danger. Such dogs feel situations that threaten the owner and warn about them. My dogs have done this task for me on several occasions. They always enter the "security mode," if they are alone in the car or the house, or when someone on the street recognizable by them as a dangerous person approaching me. They repeatedly brought me papers pulled out of a pile of documents on cases when unlawful proceedings began without any notification to me about that. I became aware of that not due to the appropriate notification sent by the court, but due to my dogs. Harry dragged from the document boxes exactly these folders and put them in front of me. It was just that out of the whole heap of documents, the dogs chose these very papers and brought them to me. They showed me through which doors strangers entered my house. And it was on these doors that the torn stickers for sealing were found. But perhaps the most outstanding, not a miraculous coincidence, was when I needed a postage receipt for one letter. It was lost a long time ago, and I needed it for a trip to the police. I was driving home, and I thought that I would look for that for at least a couple of days, and that's almost impossible that I would find it at all. When I entered the house, there was an old backpack on the floor in my bedroom. All things from the backpack were taken out. Next to it, the lost receipt laid. Nobody was at home except my two dogs. My Yasha stayed near the receipt. Being many kilometers away from me, my dog was not only able to read my thoughts but also to help me. Once I could not get Harry off the balcony door. He ran up to that, leaned on her paws, and categorically refused to leave. It was during the period when I was sealing all the doors for security reasons. I went outside and saw the torn sticker on the door. That is, they entered the house through this door. I have had a lot of such stories in my life. My dogs protected me, guarded my belongings, and always served me, warning me of dangers and problems. I never taught them this. However, since all members of this litter behaved in the same way, I assume that this is an inherited characteristic. I do not have a definite answer on how to treat a dog so that it reads your thoughts. How to train your dog to pull out from the mass of paper stuff only the documents on cases that bring you problems? Over the 19 years, I have been keeping Dalmatians. I have formed an approach on how to create such a relationship with your dog when you understand each other without words. As you probably know, six of my dogs were killed. Read this story in Harry's Diary. An awful loss - the killing of two breeding dogs, champions, parents of litters. The dogs with the highest level of aggression, Harry and Carrie, survived. Due to that fact, for several years, I cannot deal with my agility dogs, go to exhibitions, and generally provide them with the level of comfort that they deserve. As long as the Red Collar Yard was not relaunching yet, I'm keeping this section to tell more about my dogs, their training, what they did for me, and collect some information that will be useful to dog owners. Perhaps this will help transform your dog into a Red Collar one.
A clicker is a small plastic box that makes a click when you press a button. With the help of a clicker, it is much easier and faster to achieve the formation of new conditioned reflexes in a dog. With a clicker, training a dog turns into an exciting gaming activity for both - the trainer and the dog. What are the benefits of clicker training? It allows you to train to perform complex tricks or tasks consisting of a large number of small actions. The chain of actions in learning tricks gets longer each time, and the long-awaited click of the clicker is heard at the end when the dog has completed the entire sequence without error. Clicker training is indispensable for learning complex tricks, preparing for obedience and agility competitions. My dogs, with whom I trained for clicker training, showed many different tricks. And it was pretty easy to teach them. I learned about clicker training from Marina Zhurina. In Moscow, she is working for the Yasenevo dog training center. She was engaged at that time privately with breeders. You can train at her agility classes. The most popular and famous, at least for me, whose examples I studied, was Sylvia Trkmann and her Lolabuland. I attach the video. You can order more from her website.

Read this to change your mind in your communication with your dog forever.

Hovard Gardner is a professor at Harvard University. According to Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligencies Theory, the ability to understand and communicate with animals is a type of human intelligence.
