The DOG-MASTER® METHOD
is FUN and EASY! The sound controls your dog’s attention and carries his mind wherever you want. Dr. Miller's patent is also a METHOD patent, so the instruments and their proper use are co-existent, part of one cohesive system. We've already presented the WHAT. Now we discuss the HOW.
The DOs and the DON'Ts
The DOG-MASTER® method is really very simple. The technique is categorized into 2 groups: the DOs, and the DON'Ts. Both techniques involve sounding the DOG-MASTER® instrument at the right time, but there are major differences in the steps.
The DOs: As the term implies, DOs are things you want your dog to do, like COME, SIT, STAY, HEEL, FETCH, GUARD, RETRIEVE. The amount of words your dog can learn is really limitless. Teaching DOs requires the owner to call the dog's name and to speak the command at the exact same time the instrument is sounded at the dog.
The DON'Ts: Did your dog soil up your velvet drapes? Obviously, that's a DON'T. DON'Ts are all things you want to teach your dog NOT to do. It is all about problem correction. Unlike the DO technique, DON'Ts are taught without speaking. In fact, it is vital to NOT speak at all as speaking draws the dog's attention to you instead of the correction. They are really easier to teach than DOs. See examples here.
äNOTEä No matter how much you want to correct your dog's behavior right away, DON'Ts are best taught AFTER teaching COME, because your vital Master-image must first be established, or your dog will never take other directions well.
YOUR GOAL: ESTABLISH YOUR MASTER IMAGE
The dog in the picture to the right is so "tuned in" to Dr. Miller. He sees Dr. Miller as leader, protector and master. Your own success looms large when your dog sees you as teacher, protector, and leader of the pack. That is your goal.
THE WAY TO BECOMING MASTER
First, you teach "COME." COME indoctrinates your dog. COME is the only word-command where your dog is to respond to YOU, and becomes tuned in to YOU alone. COME makes you seem ten feet tall to your dog. Other commands are made for your dog to respond elsewhere, like Sit, Stay, Fetch, Point, etc. When your dog comes to you instantly at all times, all other commands and problem corrections become a breeze.
"SOUND" THE INSTRUMENT PROPERLY
Before you teach COME, you must first know how to handle the instruments properly. Keep in mind that they are NOT toys; they are precision-made to produce a very sensitive sound. Any small movement will cause the tuning fork to vibrate. So, try not to dangle or jiggle it. Keep it "silent" until the right time comes. There are 2 ways to produce this learning sound:
Now, fix in your own mind that, where the sound is made to occur, that is where the dog's mind and total attention will be drawn to.
In moments, you've acted out a new concept to your dogš COMMUNICATION!
