The Most Important Things to Teach Your Dog

Clear communications make all the difference in any training program, coupled with the personal connection you have with your dog.

In the following training video, Robert Cabral, founder of Bound Angels, discusses the three most important things that all dogs should know to live a happy and safe life.  Robert and Goofy, his Belgian Malinois, demonstrate how using simple training exercises, dogs can be taught the basic commands that will give them structure and a great deal of safety as your relationship with your dog deepens.

Robert Cabral Training The MostImportant Things to Teach Your Dog

In this thought provoking video, Robert Cabral speaks at a Symposium at UCLA, giving a clear and insightful explanation of Kennel Syndrome, Barrier Aggression, and the simple but important positive training he is implementing via Bound Angels to help shelters help the dogs in their care, enabling them to find homes when they might otherwise fail in the shelter system.  Great lessons for all who are dedicated to Rescue.


Robert Cabral, Founder and Executive Director of Bound Angels, is an authority on canine behavior and shelter dogs.  His first hand knowledge of shelter behavior, aggression, and dog training is a lifesaver to dogs that have no one to speak for them - Robert speaks for them, sometimes eloquently, oftentimes candidly - but always honestly and always with the intent to make the world a better place for them.  Bound Angels helps animal shelters save more lives through information and knowledge.

Come and Stay!

"Come!" is a great tool - one you can use anywhere - that will help your Cairn burn off energy and quite possibly keep both of you safe and happy!

Teaching your Cairn to "Come" and "Stay" can be lots of fun, but it can also provide an extra measure of safety in an emergency situation.  This excellent video by Zak George demonstrates how to teach your Cairn to "Come" and "Stay", using positive training methods.  There is a spot of advertising by his sponsor, but it does not detract from this really helpful video.  Obviously, the dog is not a Cairn, but everything Zak demonstrates applies perfectly to a Rescued Cairn.  Note his admonitions to go slowly, take small steps which you can build on, and set your dog up for success!



Training your Cairn can be Lots of Fun!

Teaching Your Cairn to Play Fetch!

"Fetch!" is a great game - one you can play inside and out - that will help your Cairn burn off lots of energy and keep both of you happy!

Is your Cairn restless or anxious when you're busy elsewhere?  Many Cairns find themselves in Rescue, shelters, or worse, simply because they have too much energy and not enough structured activity to burn it all off.  This excellent video by Zak George demonstrates how to teach your Cairn to play fetch, using positive training methods.  There is a spot of advertising by his sponsor, but it does not detract from this really helpful video.  Obviously, the dog is not a Cairn, but everything Zak demonstrates applies perfectly to a Rescued Cairn.  Note his admonitions to go slowly, take small steps which you can build on, and set your dog up for success!

Introduction to Balanced Positive Training Videos

Positive training is so very important for Cairns, but for all other dogs too.  All training begins with the connection between you and your dog.

In the following videos, Robert Cabral, founder of Bound Angels, gives a clear and insightful explanation of the important basics of balanced positive training, using corrections as needed but never punishment, the importance of making your training fun for your dog for the very best results, plus the basics of giving rewards to your dog. 




Start positive from the beginning and be consistent and clear in your communications with your dog, and you will have amazing results - it's all up to you!  In this short demo Robert introduces Goofy, his Belgian Malinois who is obedience trained as well as being trained in Schutzhund, Mondio and AKC obedience - all done with his balanced positive training methods.  Yes, training a Cairn Terrier may be more challenging than training a Malinois or German Shepherd, but it can be done - and the rewards are tenfold the effort you put in!

Introducing Your Cairn to Loud Noises!

Loud appliances can be in the house or out in the yard, so know how to introduce them to your Cairns in both environments, and how to avoid unnecessary stress.

Teaching your Cairn to remain calm in the presence of vacuum cleaners or other loud appliances can be challenging, especially if they are fearful.  This excellent video by Zak George demonstrates how to teach your Cairn to accept loud appliances, using very gentle, positive training methods.  These methods will work with a more confident but reactive dog as well as a fearful dog, and it is another great way to give your fearful Cairn a basic sense of confidence.  There is a spot of advertising by his sponsor, but it does not detract from this really helpful video.  Obviously, the dog is not a Cairn, but everything Zak demonstrates applies perfectly to a reactive or fearful Rescued Cairn.  Note his admonitions to go slowly, take small steps which you can build on, and set your dog up for success!



Training your Cairn can be rewarding!
