  • - Condition any dog in the world.

  • (high energy music)

  • Exercise first, that dog is going to be hungry,

  • don't feed him yet.

  • Now come and meet my pack!

  • (dog barking)

  • - YouTube family, my goal this time in this video is

  • to make sure that we understand how to be more proactive

  • in Fourth of July, how to make sure that we understand

  • why dogs develop flight or fear or even panic,

  • and why many dogs often escape from their homes.

  • Fourth of July is one of those stressful days in America

  • even though it means Independence Day.

  • It's a very proud day for American people.

  • I'm proud to be an American.

  • It's something that I understand, and I'm very proud of it.

  • But, at the same time, I heard how many dogs escape

  • from their homes and I also see

  • how many sad pet parents feel right after that day.

  • So Fourth of July is 243 years old.

  • And so my goal is to make sure that we prepare

  • for Fourth of July.

  • That we make sure that we embrace Fourth of July.

  • That we make sure the whole family embraces

  • and agrees how to be proactive with a dog,

  • so all dogs in America, every single dog around the world,

  • understand how to be around firecrackers.

  • Because humans, we like to celebrate with that,

  • and it's something that we want them to eventually enjoy.

  • Some dogs do get to enjoy it.

  • Some dogs get to understand that the human likes that stuff.

  • And so they will learn to sleep right next to you

  • just like watching a basketball game with you

  • or some kind of sport.

  • You know, dogs don't understand that is a basketball game.

  • What they know is you like it, you enjoy it,

  • and sometimes you scream when your team loses.

  • So I think we put a really nice piece of content

  • for you guys, especially for your dogs,

  • and for once and for all, to understand how to prevent,

  • how to be more proactive on Fourth of July,

  • and how to make sure that all dogs in America learn

  • and enjoy a Fourth of July with us.

  • Because, after all, they are family members,

  • and we're very happy for them to be with us.

  • We want to make sure they enjoy everything we celebrate.

  • And honestly, Fourth of July without a dog

  • is not too American for me.

  • Dog learns symbolically these flags on Fourth of July

  • means this is about to happen.

  • - [Peter] So they hate Fourth of July?

  • (laughing)

  • - They don't hate Fourth of July,

  • it's because the human doesn't understand firecrackers

  • to a dog is the same thing as missiles to a human.

  • See no one will try to feel okay when a missile

  • just passed by your house.

  • And then the explosion.

  • - [Peter] So they pick up, let's say the owner enjoys

  • the fireworks, does the dog pick up on that or no?

  • - Yes.

  • -The energy of us?

  • Okay, so it's more normal, it's more normal

  • Peter, that the dog have flight in the presence

  • of something he doesn't know.

  • He doesn't know firecrackers.

  • Even though you like them, you still have to introduce

  • the fact of flight is not an option.

  • - [Peter] Oh I see. - You understand?

  • It's almost like saying, "Peter,"

  • "if a missile comes right here, don't run!"

  • So a dog has an ingrain reaction to something

  • they don't know, such as fire and loud sounds.

  • (mimics explosion) is fire, you understand?

  • So the eyes is like "how do I?"

  • (mimics explosion)

  • And it's really loud, or really (mimics screaming firework).

  • So you gotta get to the point if you wanna enjoy

  • Fourth of July that a dog feels about those sounds

  • "happy go lucky" or "calm surrender."

  • So that is the destination.

  • Any other brain outside that is gonna have trouble,

  • because it's gonna be fight, flight, and avoid.

  • It's like if you see a meteor,

  • and it's coming (mimics explosions).

  • Yeah, you're not gonna be like "Ah."

  • (laughs)

  • -They did it again! (laughs)

  • - You know what I mean?

  • So you have to understand how animals look

  • at Fourth of July.

  • Cats, you're never gonna find cats anywhere,

  • but they go and hide.

  • Everybody knows that cat is gonna go in somewhere.

  • And there's no cats like "Oh my god,

  • it's Fourth of July again."

  • You learn something?

  • - That's it right? (laughs)

  • - Well, Peter, documents everything I did.

  • You never had a dog.

  • This is the first time you work with someone like me, right?

  • - [Peter] Yeah.

  • - There's not too many of me anywhere.

  • - [Peter] Only one.

  • - [Cesar] It's the truth, that's the truth here.

  • I can't hide that.

  • Listen, but what do you learn right now

  • about Fourth of July and dogs?

  • - You learn that they learn and see things

  • differently than we do.

  • And we need to prepare for that.

  • - Yeah, I mean everybody, even our culture changes

  • the way we see things.

  • You see, we have to be respectful of,

  • not just the animal in you, the human in you,

  • but the race in you, right?

  • So we have to respect race, how you Filipinos see life,

  • and how we Mexicans see life.

  • We have to understand that part.

  • So if we know that about ourselves,

  • we should know that about human to dog.

  • How does a dog experience Fourth of July?

  • This is instincts.

  • This is conditioning.

  • So a name is a sound that they learn

  • that conditions them to know that

  • that gives them food, water,

  • going somewhere, affection, you understand?

  • It's outside learned experience.

  • This is inside programming.

  • The data is already here.

  • You get it?

  • So animal dog breed is first before name.

  • You're not introducing Fourth of July

  • to the name of the dog.

  • You're introducing Fourth of July to animal, dog, breed.

  • And so, if you wanna do something perfect,

  • focus on the animal.

  • This whole animal will fight, flight, avoid, surrender.

  • A chicken will fight, flight, avoid, surrender.

  • All of them, they will do fight, flight, avoid, surrender.

  • It's not the species, so if you don't wanna focus on

  • the rest, just take care of the animal.

  • Keep the animal calm.

  • So if the animal in them is calm, the species

  • in them is calm, the breed in them is calm.

  • If you understand instincts are calm,

  • the human in you is calm,

  • the Filipino in you is calm,

  • and the Peter name is calm.

  • You understand, your instincts are calm.

  • So you have to make a separation of the intellectual world

  • and just keep a dog instinctual, emotional, and spiritual.

  • The intellectual is human.

  • That's rational.

  • Satellites, what you have on your shoulder,

  • and the backpack, my bracelet, this glasses,

  • that's an intellectual creation.

  • Dogs will never make glasses for another dog.

  • You see what I'm saying?

  • So you can't use intellectual to connect

  • or teach the instinctual, emotional, spiritual.

  • It won't work.

  • - [Peter] They Google what a firework is.

  • - The can't Google (mumbles)

  • How do you condition any dog in world to be okay

  • with Fourth of July?

  • Exercise first.

  • That dog is gonna be hungry.

  • Don't feed him there.

  • Wait until the sound and see what reaction that he chooses.

  • Fight, flight, avoid is which one, right?

  • If it's in that state and then you wave the smell,

  • because he's gonna be hungry, and he's gonna be tired.

  • That's the first day.

  • You wanna make sure the body's tired and the mind is hungry.

  • So if fight, flight, avoid comes into the picture,

  • you can wave a piece of liver, a piece of,

  • something that's really freaking primal,

  • you know what I mean?

  • It's like something like--

  • - [Mesa] Like a smell they can't resist.

  • - Flight with food.

  • So how do you do it?

  • If the body's tired, the mind is hungry.

  • Don't bring boxed things, you know.

  • Crappy kind of treats, those are later

  • when the anxiety or the fear is not as high.

  • So what you want to do when a dog is focusing on fight,

  • flight, avoidance is redirect to something

  • that can take to "happy go lucky/calm surrender."

  • So yeah, because 60% of the brain is controlled

  • by the nose, so never go after the eyes or the ears.

  • Eyes is 15, ears is 25.

  • Why would you go after the lowest thing on the planet?

  • For me it's "Okay tire, hungry, nose.

  • Tire, hungry, nose.

  • Tire, hungry, nose."

  • Then what?

  • Happy go lucky, calm surrender then I give them the food.

  • So then that sound is ignored

  • because he's gonna get food

  • for being happy go lucky, calm surrender.

  • At a certain time, you play the music, you know what I mean?

  • So at a certain time you bring the smell.

  • So what you're playing is with environment.

  • You are the director of that imprint.

  • So that day has to be Spielberg, you know, perfection.

  • - [Peter] Can it take every owner a day? To put an imprint,

  • you would say, or longer?

  • - I would say it would take about an hour.

  • - [Peter] An hour? - Yeah.

  • It takes about an hour.

  • Listen what is gonna take long is the walk

  • you're about to do.

  • Okay, so that walk, okay, so most people walk 15-30 minutes,

  • very few one hour.

  • But if that day before the Fourth of July,

  • okay before Fourth of July, you go for,

  • at least, 2-3 hours walk.

  • Watch what happens the Fourth of July.

  • You know what I mean, because normally

  • he doesn't have the stamina, the strength.

  • So you gonna take him farther than their usual,

  • so by the time he comes home, his body is gonna say

  • "Hey, go to rehab. Go to restore."

  • And he's just gonna go.

  • So by the time he hears Fourth of July,

  • the body is not gonna let him get up, you understand?

  • The tired is gonna be so heavy, so if he gets a little bit,

  • you bring a little food, he's gonna go do this.

  • So the preparation is easy.

  • The thing is can you make the time,

  • because your friend needs more than 30 minutes?

  • Fourth of July is about to show up.

  • And we all knew it, but nobody planned for the dog.

  • (laughs)

  • So dog has to go out to drain energy,

  • come back, and now you expose him to things

  • that are more likely for him not to be natural,

  • not to feel natural.

  • Which is Fourth of July.

  • No other species in the world uses missiles.

  • - [Kim] So let me ask you this,

  • if I don't have 3 hours to walk my dog,

  • can I introduce him to, if I never take him swimming,

  • can I take him on a different path

  • that he's never on that will change his energy level?

  • Because he's excited to be on an hour long hike

  • or he's swimming for the first time for 45 minutes?

  • Is it the same thing?

  • - [Cesar] Well if anything new is going to challenge
