Welcome to the Gullion Dog Trning Club's web site. Gullion is a very old village on the northern outskirts of Derry, and it was here that we began our dog trning career. It was here that I learned about the great work done by the Gullion Dog Trning Club. We are a small group of dedicated dog trners, and our goal is to share our knowledge with others. I am proud to say that Gullion is where I learned all the things I have learned and am still learning as a dog trner.

What is the best way to stop a dog from growling at me?
Dog Trning Info
It is a very common occurrence to find a dog that will growl at people. While the term growling means different things to different people, there are several common characteristics that seem to make up a growl. Growling is most often characterized by a sound that resembles the word "grr," and when a dog growls, his lips usually curl up over his teeth. When the dog growls, he is expressing his negative feelings, and he is trying to send a message to another dog, or a person, that they are not welcome.
If you are the target of a dog's growling, there are a number of things that you can do to stop the growling. The most important thing is to not start it. If you approach the dog and start talking to him, he will probably growl, but if you ignore him, he will probably stop growling. Try not to take the growling personally. This is an attempt on the dog's part to let you know that you are not wanted around. You can, however, express affection to the dog by being gentle with him. Give him some attention to make him feel comfortable around you. Gently pat his head and scratch behind his ears. If he responds positively to this approach, the growling will likely stop.
The growling usually stops when the dog starts to associate you with something or someone he likes. The way you approach him, and the kind of attention you give him, helps the dog decide if you are a friend or an enemy. It takes some time for a dog to learn to trust people, but once he trusts you, the growling will not be an issue.
There are many ways to teach a dog to stop growling. I recommend the "No Touch" method. To the person who is the target of the growling, the dog does not seem to care whether you stop the growling. The dog's owner, on the other hand, will often be concerned about the growling. The owner will try to reason with the dog and tell him that you are a good person and the dog should stop growling. Many people believe that you can reason with a dog because you know him, but in this case you have to learn to understand the dog's communication.
The best way to learn is to get the dog to come to you instead of you approaching the dog. Once the dog is under your control, the growling usually stops, and then you can teach him how to stop it. If the dog's owner has tried to reason with the dog and has not gotten results, then I recommend that you approach the dog with the owner's permission. The "No Touch" method is effective when working with the dog's owner. I suggest that you ask permission to try it before starting. Once you are sure that the dog trusts you, I suggest that you gently guide the dog's nose to your hand and touch it lightly, just to get him to know that you are a friendly dog. If you touch the dog, you should stop immediately, and if he doesn't stop, you should walk away. If the dog is very aggressive, you should use a treat in place of your hand to start. If the dog continues to growl, you should not touch him, but you should keep walking away. Do this for a few minutes, and then come back and try the same thing agn. The first time you do this, you may have to keep the dog at a distance of two feet, and the second time you should allow up to eight feet between you. You should try to continue this process every time you see the dog growling until the dog comes to you without growling. You can then work on stopping the growling.
There are several ways to stop a dog from growling at people. The "No Touch" method is simple, and the "No Bite" method is a little more complex. For this reason, I would recommend that you work with your dog's owner to use the "No Touch" method, but if you cannot get the dog to come to you, then try the "No Bite" method. When you approach the dog, gently pet his head and say "No" with a low, firm tone of voice. You should keep the tone of your voice the same the whole time you say it, even if the dog stops growling. You should continue to say "No" with the same tone of voice until the dog goes to you willingly. If he goes to you, you should reward him with a treat. If you can use the "No Touch" method, then you should use this method every time you approach the dog. If the dog does not respond, or if he growls at you, then you should use the "No Bite" method.
The "No Bite" method is a bit more complicated than the "No Touch" method. This method involves stopping the growling by making a gentle bite. Once the
