What's Inside The Course?


Putting The Fun Back Into Training

We're going to begin by making training fun. Out with long dreary sessions of drilling, trying to be the stern boss, and constantly repeating yourself. 

We'll teach you how dogs learn and show you how to start shaping and changing your dog's behavior without using any force .

It will be fun for you too, training sessions are short and structured. You won't be left wondering what to do next. 


Getting Your Dog's Attention

It's a wonderful feeling, having a dog that only has eyes for you!  You can have that feeling by training your dog to focus on you and pay attention to you.

That's what Module 2 is all about. 

If you'd like a dog that says 'please' instead of just grabbing stuff. This is a week you'll love!


Telling Your Dog What To Do

This is the part where we teach you how to introduce commands, in a way that your dog will be able to understand.

We'll show you how to avoid the common mistakes most people make, so that you don't end up with a dog that doesn't listen to anything you say.


Building Reliable Behaviors

This is where we show you how to start progressing the behaviors you want your dog to carry out, and making them more reliable. 

We'll show you how to add duration and simple distractions, and to help your dog really understand what you want him to do.
