Basic Obedience & More Without The Use Of Treats

  • by Saro
  • Course level: Beginner


In this course, you will learn philosophy and the methodology of dog training without the use of treats or food plus you will get to learn to teach your dog basic obedience using a unique method. In this unique course, you will learn the method of dog training using “play & praise” as a reward system which will help you to get great results right away after training your dog and accomplishing them.

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.

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.

What people say: 

I used to like Zack George videos but then I started to think. Is there a way to teach dogs without treats? Does the treat training method actually work? Will my dog ever listen to me without treats? So, I started to search if there is a training method without treats and that’s how I found your videos. Your way actually works! I tried it and my dog started to listen to me without treats!

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.

I have subscribed to many dog training channels & none is as good & thorough as yours.  Although some are good, none have the Live streaming Question & Answer as yours does.  And many of these trainers talk way too fast!!

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.
