“He listens to his trainer real good. He just doesn’t listen to me. I still can’t get him to do nothing.” Evander Holyfield, on his Akita, who had completed obedience training with a professional trainer.
Do not be dismayed as Mr. Holyfield was with his Akita; there is a solution to the problem. This solution is found in Brain Training for Dogs. A program of dog training created by Adrienne Faricelli. In simplistic terms, it is a method of positive reinforcement, based on mutual respect, and showing unconditional love to your dog. The results will be a well trained dog who, listens and follows your directions and commands.
Motivation to change undesirable behavior
From the cradle to the grave, people learn through life experiences. It is no different for a canine; we are all born to obtain pleasure and to avoid pain. In a world of unknowns, learning to obtain pleasure by performing certain behaviors is a better way than to avoid the pain that has been caused by undesirable misbehaviors. It is as simple as a baby crying because he or she is hungry; when the pleasure (or need) of food is provided, the crying stops. Using positive reinforcement as the solution of obtaining pleasure will create the motivation a dog will need to repeat the desired behavior, which produces the positive result. It is a win-win solution for all those involved.

What the owner and dog want
Basic traits of dogs who have been blessed to have an owner who loves them knows that the dog is loyal and devoted to the caregiver; the person who feeds, waters, shelters and protects them. A pet such as dog has the sole purpose is to show love, and to be loved. Much like we humans, we desire to be loved and cared for as if a precious gift from heaven.
When a dog recognizes who the caregiver is, they will cater to the that person’s directions or commands with all they have in order to please and survive. It is not simply a matter of survival, the emotional bond created in the relationship between the dog and the owner is monumental. The person who feeds them, shelter’s, them and protects them is who they desire to please. The greatest need of any dog is food, water, and shelter from danger.
How this works
It is a proven fact that positive reinforcement is highly successful; simply reflect on historical psychological theories. Pavlov’s Dogs experiment is unquestionable of how positive reinforcement will produce desired results. Dogs are intelligent and have emotions for their caregivers; regardless of what the general public may believe. This is evidence as respects to the point of destructive behavior to the point of death with a dog trained to fight other dogs. On the positive side of this is the dog trained as a police dog; loyalty and desire to please mixed with intelligence produces remarkable behavior in a properly trained dog.
The science behind the system used in correcting bad behaviors in dogs. The idea of ‘neuroplasticity’ in the human brain has been discussed in the field of scientific research. It is a well established belief which, when researched heavily at Harvard and other leading universities, has proven that the brain is like soft plastic; can be molded making it capable to change, and to learn new habits and behaviors. A dog’s brain can be changed in the exact same manner.
Adrienne Faricelli states that “With the right mental stimulation and training… (That you will get in my program) your dog’s brain will become more open and receptive to learning new information. Your dog will listen to you and better understand what you are telling him to do. When this happens, your dog’s bad behaviors simply fade away as more desirable ones appear in their place. The bottom line is, more intelligent Dogs are better behaved and more obedient.”
Dog owners who have experienced the following will benefit from Brain Training For Dogs: the dog does not listen, barks uncontrollably and will not respond to command to cease, pulls in the leash, aggressive, chews on objects that are not given as toys or rewards, digging too much, and jumping on people. These problems may have a new dog owner question themselves; was it a mistake in the decision of becoming a pet owner. Or worried about the future, and the possibility they will never gain control of the dog’s negative behavior. Some dog owners often wonder why their dog does not behave as they have seen other dog owner’s dogs behave.
It is important for any dog owner to believe there is a solution to the problem and to avoid the feelings of helplessness. It is frustrating for anyone to have a dog who will get over excited and become uncontrollable, whining constantly or react in fear over normal sounds or stimuli, will disobey as if defiant, and simply causes extreme stress over unsuccessful training sessions. Almost any behavior problem you can think of can be quickly and easily cured with the simple techniques by using the proven methods in Brain Training For Dogs.
Professional opinions count
The following professional in the field of dog training have the following to say about Brain Training For Dogs:
Dr. J Coates, Veterinary Advisor at petMD.com, states: “Today’s dogs suffer from a lack of mental stimulation and quality time spent with “their” people. The resulting boredom and anxiety can lead to no end of physical and behavioral problems. Brain Training for Dogs is the solution! In a clear and concise manner, Adrienne Farricelli walks owners through a series of puzzles and exercises that will challenge and entertain dogs of all abilities.”
Caryl Wolff, Dog Training/Behavior Consultant for 20+ Years, advised that “Both the exercises and the games are very practical so dog owners may use them throughout the day to have a well-trained dog. There are training nuggets throughout, both in the step-by-step instructions and the Troubleshooting sections that will help enrich the lives of both dogs and their owners!”

Personally recommend this program
As a professional in the field of psychology, and a devote dog lover from childhood, I can attest that this method of training is superior to any other type of training I have used. My dogs are my furry babies, they are my companion, my confidant, and my “go to” when I need comfort. People are able to change their entire lives; from drug addiction to marriage repair, by using the same method of training. We are all people who learn from experience, including our furry friends.
I recommend anyone who is just starting to train a puppy, or has a dog that for years has not been able to be properly trained to try this method of dog training. If it does not work as promised, I am sure the reason must be one not considered as a problem in behavior.
The scientist who came before us with theories and performed experiments which prove the theory of positive reinforcement is a testimony to a method of training that works. This program would not be as successful or as well know if it did not work. Facts are facts.
Do not be frustrated and ready to give up as Evander Holyfield was with his beloved Akita. Using a tried and proven method of training that not only results in obedience and control of your pet, but also creates a strong bond of partnership in the relationship for both dog and owner. It can and will happen for you.
