We help our students learn how to train and bond with their puppy, or rescue dog. Or simply start over with dogs that have stopped listening!
We give our students confidence in their ability to be their dog's best teacher. And provide the skills and knowledge to help them achieve their goals.
Video demonstrations accompany all the training exercises in the courses. You'll see different dogs of different ages having fun completing the games.
The information throughout the course is written by Pippa Mattinson, author of the international best selling Happy Puppy Handbook. There is a lot of additional written content for those who want to expand their knowledge of canine behavior.
The training exercises are broken down into short games. Each game takes two or three minutes to play. The games build your ability as a trainer and teach your dog new skills.

Win Win All The Way Around
“Having this online option allows us to train at our pace, in our preferred environment and when it best suits our puppy! Nothing but a win-win all the way around.”
You Are In Safe Hands
Dog training methods vary widely. There are parts of the world where it is still common to hear puppy parents being advised to smack or alpha roll their puppies. You don't need to go down that route.
Education through play is the future. Modern dog training methods are kind and effective, and position you at the center of your dog's world. So you can have a dog that both listens and loves you.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee for 7-Days
We think you'll love our courses, but if you don't, just let us know within 7 days and we'll give you a full refund.
Expecting A Puppy? Advance preparation is so helpful.
We recommend you enroll on the Puppy Parenting course 2-4 weeks before your puppy arrives. Don't worry if you can't do this, but it's nice to have time to absorb the first module before tiny paws are scampering all over your home!
A Message From Pippa:
This training program provides the information, help and support I wish I had had when I had my first puppy. I firmly believe that the more information you have, the happier you and your puppy will be.
I'm so excited to share my knowledge with you using the Dogsnet Online Training Program. It allows me to include so much more than I could ever put in a book. And I think you'll have hours of fun, putting these simple and effective strategies into practice!"
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Have Time?
You definitely have time! The training games are short and sweet. Most only take a couple of minutes or so to play. They can easily be slotted into a busy schedule.
Is My Dog Too Old / Old Enough?
Puppy Parenting and Puppy Games are ideally suited for puppies from 8 weeks old. But you and your puppy will still benefit if your puppy is up to 10 or 11 weeks of age. Especially if you are having problems with potty training, biting, or night waking. For puppies over 12 weeks old, the Foundations Skills course is a better place to begin.
Puppy Games Vs Puppy Parenting
New puppy and not sure which course to buy? Puppy Games focuses on training and is ideal for more confident puppy parents. Puppy Parenting focuses on caring for a new puppy, though it does include some training games.
If you are new to puppy parenting or if it is a long time since you last raised a puppy, then you will probably be happier on the Puppy Parenting course.
What Is The Student Forum?
Our private members' forum is a great place for students to get help from our support team or simply hang out with other students. There are hundreds of interesting threads to browse and a comprehensive collection of FAQs for each training course.
How Long Does My Course Access Last?
You'll have access to our entry level course for 4 months and to the forum for a full year with our Puppy Parenting and Foundation Skills courses. Puppy Games access lasts for 3 months. And Core Skills comes with 6 months access to the content, and a full year's access to the forum.
How Does The Guarantee Work?
We'll provide a full refund anytime in the first seven days after purchase. That gives you time to look through the first lessons and make sure that the course is the right one for you.
What Happens If I Get Stuck?
You'll be able to chat to other students in the private forum and our training team will be on hand to help. However, the steps are so detailed and structured that you should be covered! And we update course content regularly with popular questions and their answers.
What Does It Cost In My Currency?
