Although my training system is so simple that even kids can use it, we suggest you let adults start the training and then teach the kids the methods so you can all develop consistent results.
Treats or food can cause development of heath issues in your dog and makes your dog and you depend on them for simple tasks in the future. It also distracts your dog from focusing on YOU!
You don’t need to use tools or even depend on tools. You can offer the best reward for your dog by praising him/her verbally and physically or you can play with your dog using a favourite toy.
By using my simple training method and understanding my philosophy, your dog will have no choice but to listen to you without being dependent on food.
I am a certified expert family pet dog trainer and I received my dog trainer certification from “The College of Canine Behavioural Science”. I am also a member of the “Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers”.
For sure. With all the recent situations in the world, we have discovered that online and virtual learning has become the best form of getting information. Especially when it comes to dogs and dog training. Your dog and you will feel more comfortable and willing to observe information in home setting rather than in the strange environment such as dog training classrooms or dog trainer’s home. Even when a dog trainer attends your home, your dog may feel overwhelmed or excited which are not the ideal situations to learn or train.
Therefore, virtual training offers you all the information that you need in the comfort of your home so you can master the techniques.
No. Even if you work with the best dog trainer in the world, when a dog is reactive (either in positive or negative way) the mind is not focused on learning. Your dog’s mind is focused on either to flight or to interact with the subject. So, the dog does not learn and in fact it backfires and makes the behaviour or the situation worse.
Yes, if you want to specialize in a certain form of dog training such as agility, flyball or protection. These types of training would need you to be present and work one on one with a qualified dog trainer.
