The Educator

NITSAN LIR
CANINE EDUCATOR
PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATE - STATE CERTIFIED

I arrived professionally in the dog world after many years of professional experience in the equestrian world : horse trainer, riding instructor and equestrian center owner.

As a horse trainer, I make sure to work with the nature of the horse and its natural qualities to achieve cooperation, mutual respect and teamwork : the so-called HorseManShip.

 

BIANCO & NÉRO

As a canine educator, following my experience with horses, I apply the same values to my dog work : DogManShip.

I work with them on communication, relationship and cooperation, considering their nature and temperament, while respecting their basic, social and developmental needs as well as ensuring their well-being.

In addition to Canine Education, I was trained in canine comportment (behavior), canine cynotechnology, animal mediation, dog nutrition, Mantrailing (searching for missing persons), categorized dogs, canine first aid and regulation.

Philosophy & methodology

I have always
considered that
the dog is a
sensitive being,
social and
intelligent
who has developed
learning skills

My vision, my approach and my working method represent a New Generation of Canine Education based on communication, relationship and cooperation, all three being mutual between the dog and his human - DogManShip (Dog Man Relationship).

I have always considered that the dog is a sensitive being, social and intelligent who has developed learning skills. To ask him to adapt and integrate himself into our society ... the education, the leadership, the guidance and the tools used must be designed and developed to help the dog (and his human) to find his place in the group, in the family, in this human lifestyle while respecting the specific needs of each individual.

Respecting the basic, social, development and well-being needs of dogs is essential.

The methods I work with are therefore based on verbal and non-verbal communication, relationship, cooperation, teamwork, listening, respect, guidance, freedom of action ... all this by determining frames for the dog that he will have to respect and by offering him the power of choice in these same frames.

I use the natural qualities of the dog to emphasize and develop his skills : socialization, familiarization, habituation, interaction, exploration, observation, reading, senses, excitement (which must rather be channeled, avoid, limit and manage), the perception (Umwelt), experience, FUN ... just allow him to be a dog ... and therefore to be happy.

The Canine Education Dogmanship that I propose is an advanced, innovative and very caring approach. Many elements are common to Horsemanship Equestrian Education with which I have been working for many years and they have proven themselves by giving significant results whether with horses or dogs.

I use
the natural qualities
of the dog
to emphasize
and develop
his skills

My approach is different and opposed to all the old methods that are irrelevant in my opinion, methods such as dressage, obedience, dominance and hierarchy : most canine "educators" work according to the traditional method which is an abuse of power : use of choke collar, electric collar, brainwashing, conditioning ... avoiding and without respecting the basic needs of the dog !

These uses are incorrect and dangerous : they are at the root of many behavioral problems and they have no place in our current world.

 

So here's WHAT I REFUSE TO USE OR DO

CHOKE COLLAR
or ELECTRICAL COLLAR

The use of a choke collar or an electrical collar is conceived to injure, humiliate, intimidate, torture and "break" the dog with a real lack of respect. It is mistreatment !
Pain, anger and constant fear in the dog turn into behavioral problems, frustration and increase the risk of aggression (90% of "accidents" dog bites happen at home with the dog of the family !!!).

CLICKER
TRAINING

The clicker training, described by some canine "educators" as a "soft and positive" method, is the opposite of the communication, the relationship and the cooperation that must exist between a dog and his human. In fact, the clicker reduces communication to a "click" ; it builds a relationship with this object associated to the "treats" (food) and not with humans ; and finally what looks like a cooperation is a make-believe : the dog will do this for food and not for us or with us. It's simply a conditional brainwashing !!!

FOOD FOR
EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES

The use of food in a conditional manner for educational purposes. We can call it "candy" or "sweet" or any kind of name that helps us to feel comfortable with, in the end it's about food, nutrition, which is vital need. It must not have conditions for the vital needs of animals such as food, water, air or sleep !!!

THE MAGIC
WAND

The magic wand. Canine education (like that of children) is a constant, consistent and continuous process. There are no shortcuts or magic wands ! Despite the expectation of finding a quick, immediate and absolute solution, it is very important to take the time to allow the learning process to progress at the rhythm of each dog, depending on its history, situation, location and context.

RAMSEY & FRéDéRIC

J'éprouve une gratitude infinie à l'égard de Nitsan Lir. Grâce à ses méthodes d'éducation positive, il m'a permis d'établir une communication exceptionnelle avec mon chien au passé inconnu. Après un abandon, deux semaines en fourrière, et quelques jours en refuge SPA, Ramsey était traumatisé au moment de notre rencontre. A la fois affectueux avec les humains mais imprévisible avec ses congénères.
La patience de Nitsan, sa compréhension des émotions et des besoins de l'animal ont réussi à lui redonner confiance en lui. "Rien de magique" comme il le répète, mais des progrès spectaculaires et émouvants. En transmettant son approche innovante, il fait voler en éclats de nombreux qui-proquos et malentendus entre nos deux espèces.
Je ne peux pas dire qu'il manque la parole à mon chien, Nitsan est sa "voix-off".

LUDWIG & MARIE-HÉLÈNE

Méthode bienveillante et
efficace. Grâce aux séances
avec Nitsan, mon chien est
devenu plus calme.
Les aboiements pénibles ont
disparu, et je peux maintenant
le lâcher sans problème lors
des balades au parc !
J'ai même appris
énormément de choses sur
le comportement des chiens.
Vraiment beaucoup de
changements positifs.

Nous recommandons vivement
l'accompagnement de Nitsan
à toutes les personnes qui
souhaitent comprendre et
éduquer leur chien, en privilégiant
le respect de l'animal ainsi que la
sérénité de l'entourage (famille,
voisins, personnes sur la voie
publique). Après une analyse du
comportement du chien, Nitsan
propose une série d'actions
"correctrices" et coache aussi
bien l'animal que ses maîtres.
Avec des résultats rapides et
significatifs à la clé. Notre chien
s'est apaisé... et nous également !!

NEWTON, LOGAN & KATRINE, KOSTAS

Nous avions des chiens réactifs,
qui tiraient en laisse, et avec qui
il était difficile de faire une
balade. Le travail de Nitsan
nous a permis de profiter de nos
chiens pleinement. Maintenant
c'est tellement agréable d'aller
tous les quatre se promener
ensemble, détendus, confiants.
Et tout cela avec une approche
qui combine un cadre, pour
nos chiens, très clair, tout en leur
laissant une grande liberté
d'être chien.

TOF & AGATHE, ADRIEN

Loin des méthodes "classiques"
d'éducation, Nitsan préfère
prendre le temps de construire
une vraie relation entre les chiens
et "ses humains".
Il nous accompagne dans notre
vie à trois avec beaucoup de
bienveillance, d'attention et de
professionnalisme. Sa méthode
est sincère et juste. Une sincérité
que l'on retrouve ensuite dans la
relation avec notre chien.
Nous ne saurions recommander
quelqu'un d'autre et nous
remercions infiniment Nitsan et
ses chiens Bianco et Néro pour
tout ce qu'ils nous ont apportés
et nous apportent encore.

Très belle rencontre humaine,
c'est un plaisir d'échanger avec
Nitsan. Il prend le temps et est très
disponible.
Une approche respectueuse des
chiens et de leurs besoins, qui
sont libres de communiquer et de
prendre les bonnes décisions.
Le lien et la relation sont
favorisés. Nitsan nous redonne
confiance en nous et en nos
chiens. De beaux progrès pour
mes loulous à chaque séance,
je les vois évoluer et apprendre,
que du positif !
Merci Nitsan pour les conseils et
le suivi ;)
