Many dog owners and dog trainers use treats, aversive tools, force, or domination to train dogs, but we know now that these are not the best options to use to train dogs as they have negative effects physically and mentally.

Training dogs using treats causes the development of health issues, dependency on treats, and also lack of long-term results. These are just some of the reasons why you don’t get results when you train your puppy or dog.

Science has discovered that we can train dogs and get the same or even better results by just using “play or praise” as a reward for dogs.

This course is a complete course of basic obedience, leash walking solutions, behavioural modification, dog training methods without the use of treats or food and Learn how to train your dog if your dog is not food motivated. It has it all.

We will explore all these discoveries and I will teach you all the techniques and ideas that you can use to train your dog to become the best dog in the neighborhood or even the world without the use of treats, food, aversive tools like shock collars, prong collars, choke chain collars, force, domination or being alpha.

Students Reviews

I am so glad I came across your videos and took your course before we got our dog because I would have done everything wrong! You have really given me confidence that we can have a great dog.

I have recommended him (Saro) to many people that I meet just in passing in public. Saro has the facilities and techniques to make you and your dog a successful team.
Gabi Kwan
Saro is by far better than the trainers that are in my hometown. I wish there were more people like him, I’m in love with his techniques, this is how training was meant to be. I only wish many others realized they don’t have to be for lack of better words cruel to train because I’ve seen some training styles that are just that.

Great course and helped me understand my dog a lot more! I've watched many videos on youtube, but with this course I started understanding things way better. Also Saro's calm energy and warm tone makes you feel very relaxed while you're learning. Couldn't recommend him more!
