Robert Cabral Teaches the Power of Playing Tug!

Learning the key rules to playing "Tug" with your Cairn will help to deepen your relationship as you and your dog are having fun!

In the following training video, Robert Cabral, founder of Bound Angels, discusses the benefits of teaching your dog to play “Tug” with you, clearly spelling out the rules of the game.  Robert and Goofy, his Belgian Malinois, demonstrate how playing Tug will strengthen your relationship with your dog and help keep your dog safe and happy.

Note that Robert uses “Yes” as his release word, while many of us use “Yes” as a marker for training (instead of a clicker) and “OK” as the release word.  Please keep in mind that, in all of your training, you should use the words you are most comfortable with and can be consistent with because consistency is the key to all training.

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.
