`Russian Dog Wizard' Has Power Over Pups
Vladae with three eager students
Monday, March 22, 2010 17:32 GMTNEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) A man known as the Russian Dog Wizard commands respect from even the toughest bitches.
Vladae Roytapel has an innate ability to communicate with dogs using something called doglish.
The trainer says his magic power over pooches comes from being assertive and letting the dog know whos boss.
This requires the right sounds, gestures, and body language.
For instance, to tell a pup no he makes the noise ahht instead while thrusting his body forward and keeping eye contact.
He then freezes, which shows the dog he means business and implies I may bite YOU.
The Russian Dog Wizard believes pets especially American dogs are so badly behaved because humans dont discipline them enough, letting them rule the roost.
To begin the training process, he suggests owners use the Pet Convincer, a small device he created that releases air and sound to grab a pups attention.
Roytapel says his methods also work on humans.
