Ground Rules for Great Dogs
There is pretty common reason for most dog behavior problems
You can easily fix that reason…..
Your Dog Is Counting on You To Help Him!
Your dog’s behavior is a direct reflection of the relationship he has with you.
If your dog’s life has been free floating, no rules, no structure, no boundaries, no direction, then maybe his bad behavior is his way of trying to tell you:
“I’m stressed because something is missing, you’re not being my leader and there is no routine and structure – I don’t know how to live in this world of yours”
Their entire world is all about having a trusted and respected leader, and- clear order and control . He’s looking for direction from you. And you’re not giving any of that to them.
If you are not leading the relationship with your dog don’t be surprised if he becomes:
If you are an inconsistent leader with your dog and bring a lot of stress, anxiety, and frustration into your life with your dog he may:
- Lick constantly
- Chew everything
- House soil
- Guard things
- Bite and nip
- Bark constantly
- Have no emotional control
- Fight with family dogs
- Whine constantly
- Suffer from separation anxiety ——————–and the list goes on
Dogs thrive on rules, routine, structure and boundaries all which should be given and taught by you to your dog.
If these are non-existent or very inconsistent with your dog, his way of dealing with this free floating existence is by acting out.
To have a well behaved dog you must be his compass and guide him. Without that, he is lost.
So, How Do You Turn This Behavior Around?
Your dog needs to learn that focusing on you is not a chore, it’s simply the way he gets what he wants from you!
The most important thing you can teach your dog is for him to ask politely for the things he wants by automatically saying “please”.
I know it sounds simple, but allowing your dog to make all the decisions and to get everything of value in his life for free, is so incongruent with how dogs live together that his only coping mechanism is to get this anxious feeling off him by replacing that with some type of chaotic behavior or to become extremely stressed.
If this is starting to sound a lot like raising a child————it is! Only a whole whole lot easier
Once you become the source of all good things in your dog’s life by putting Ground Rules into place, this becomes a way to share learning and being with your dog so that you have respect for each other and you both have fun.
Your dog respects you as leader and you respect and honor your dog’s natural temperament
This builds an intimacy and companionship as well as good behavior
This small shift in your outlook can have a profound impact on your relationship with your dog.
It ignites a connection between you and your dog that is only found in balanced, mutually beneficial relationships
So Do You Want A Happier Dog?
Sounds Great, Sure you do – BUT – sounds like a lot of extra work to do! It’s not, and here’s why
Right now you are putting forth a lot of work and effort and still not getting the behavior from your dog you want and need.
What I’ve done for you with Ground Rules is to teach you how to connect with and work with your dog in a way that requires much less work and much less effort
You take what you are already doing with your dog and handle that differently using what you learn in Ground Rules
You learn with Ground Rules, the difference between handling a situation correctly or incorrectly.
Working with your dog using Ground Rules makes everything less frustrating for both you and your dog.
Less stress and frustration means the dog learns to succeed instead of fail and you learn to succeed right by his side
Can you imagine the strength of the bond this creates between you and your dog?
Here is why Ground Rules for Great Dogs is so important
These rules are the basis for the entire relationship with your dog. They are the foundation for everything else you teach your dog.
When your dog understands what you expect of him, you empower him to be able to give you the behavior you want and you empower him to be successful at living in a human home.
What these rules also teach your dog is that when they are in a situation where they might not be sure of how to act, they will look to you for direction instead of making the decision on how to act from a dog’s point of view.
YOU become the leader. You become their source for guidance in their decisions. You become their most important person.
These rules provide safety, peace and comfort to your dog’s world.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change
Here is how he learns the rules
The Ground Rules is a specific, step by step process that you learn quickly and use every day with your dog. Your dog will understand perfectly what you mean because you’re talking his language.
The Ground Rules cover areas of your relationship like who leads the relationship and who follows in the relationship. In case you don’t know, YOU should lead the relationship.
The Ground Rules explain and teach exactly how to get your dog to understand that all things of high value to him come from you and you are the source of your dog’s security and love.
Here’s what you can expect from Ground Rules
This is an easy explanation of how your dog sees his world and how to use his view of his world to help him live in your world. It’s THAT simple.

Be Ready for Great Changes
I’ve seen it work every day with all my clients, and it will work for you… stay focused, do the work, and you and your dog will have a phenomenal relationship and his behavior will be awesome.
I believe in you and I know you can do this and most importantly, we can to do this together!
Here’s what clients say about the rules:
Things have been improving noticeably over the past month. We immediately switched foods to a higher quality kibble, required sits/downs for everything, and disallowed access onto the couch for a few days completely until they understood they needed to be asked onto the couch before it was ok.
I can tell you that we immediately saw a change the moment we stopped letting them on the couch at their leisure. It was as if a switch snapped in their brain that they didn’t run the house.
Your Ground Rules for Great Dogs, after reading through it, is all common-sense stuff, but sometimes it takes it being laid out in front of you, like you did, to realize what you were missing.
My wife and I are well on our way to having better behaved dogs. Shawn
I can’t believe it either…she is definitely a dominant dog and I’m pretty shocked she is going along with this. I can’t wait to do the other things…I haven’t even read the whole thing yet!!!
She’s even “looking” at me more…it that makes sense. Seeing progress in like 3-4 days is a miracle. It motivates me to keep going. Yes, you can use my name anytime!!
I will keep you informed of our progress. I’m excited and I hope this keeps working.
Thank you guys!!!!! Missy Smith
“I never understood about rules with my dog until your rules taught me how much my girls love to have that balance in their lives.
My dogs had taken over my life. I couldn’t have people over, they absolutely wore me out trying to get them to behave, they had begun peeing in the house. I was a mess and so were they. Once I understood how to just step back, take a deep breath and methodically put these ground rules into place, the change in my dogs was astounding. I jokingly asked Jim where my dogs went to and who are these lovely dogs living in my home. The best part- I feel so much better and we’re all a lot happier. L Marsh
The change with this was a combination, I think, of my mindset and my understanding of the dog world. But also, Maggie’s understanding that I’m the leader and she’s the dog and she IS a whole different animal right now. I am very excited! J. Alban
I think we’re making good progress…Jake is responding to the routine and both Joanie and I are much more comfortable dealing with him now that we have a map. P. James
These are the exact same instructions and “how to’s” that I give to clients when I do private lessons in their homes. Listen to Lisa, a devoted “cat person” who found little Spanki. Spanki had no manners what so ever and listen how Lisa used Ground Rules for Great Dogs to get Spanki on the right track.
Are you ready to do this?
Now onto the training of your dog with Ground Rules for a Great Dog!
This is your easy, simple, clear step by step plan to turn your dog around.
It’s not difficult.
It’s not really any more work.
It’s simply changing the way you do things so your dog has a “base of rules” by which he operates.
This is a downloadable, step-by step, take action, 47 Page Study Guide including fundamentals of obedience. It also includes 2 Embedded Bonus Videos in PDF, PLUS a Bonus report on food and behavior, PLUS a Tracking Worksheet, PLUS an MP3 of the entire course.
The Study Guide is broken up into 3 sections, the exact same way I break this up when I do my series of 3 in-home behavior modification lessons. In doing this, it makes it easier for you to understand it and put the new structure in your dog’s life.
Ground Rules for Great Dogs revolves around expectations of what you want from your dog AND your dog’s expectations of what he wants and needs from you.
Then I go about teaching you how to get those expectations met using your New Rules and Your New Boundaries with your dog.
Again, it’s not more work, it’s simply changing the way you do things so your dog has a “base of rules” by which he lives in your home.
This provides security and a road map for your dog to follow to be a balanced, well behaved dog.
On top of the Study Guide you will also receive:
Bonus: Two (2) embedded powerful videos to help you understand exactly how your dog should live with your rules and how you help him do that.
Bonus: An expanded 60+ minute audio of Ground Rules. Listen on your IPod, in your car, on your IPad. Great for those who like to learn by listening. A super compliment to the written Study Guide.
Bonus: The food you feed your dog has a profound impact on their behavior. Learn what to look for in the ingredients, the order of the ingredients, what are some good foods and more.
Bonus: Worksheet to help you put the new routine in place so you can see the pattern immediately and get faster results. This will be extremely helpful to keep track of your new behavior and how your new behavior improves your dog’s behavior. A priceless addition to the Study Guide
Love your dog? Then step up. Be the kind of dog owner your dog needs!
My quarantee: This works, if YOU work it. However, if you work this program for 30 days and you can honestly say you do not see any positive changes in your dog then I’ll happily return your purchase price.
