Everything you need to know to make owning a dog or a puppy a success. Whether you are thinking about getting a puppy or a rescue dog, you just got one or you have an older dog and would like to train them properly then this course is for you!
The course "From Puppy To Dog Training" follows the natural process from when you first think about getting a dog all the way to a fully trained well behaved dog. This course will help you avoid a lot of the common mistakes, help you understand why your dog behaves the way it does and how to achieve the most out of life with your dog.
PLEASE NOTE: This course does NOT include the Classic Beginner Dog Training classes. It does however go much deeper than that: it is FOUNDATIONAL, the core training of everyday life. Just like with children you can teach them how to take their first steps or tie their shoes, but without proper foundational training your child will still misbehave, not listen and even disrespect you. It's nice to make your dog sit, stay, come, heel etc. But outside of that, how would you get your dog to actually behave? This course goes over that.
Here are some of the things you will learn in this course:
By following this video course step-by-step you will encounter the most effective ways to training your dog through practical application that is based on real life solutions for the every day person.
The focus of the course is on YOU understanding all the different situations you may end up in and their solutions. So to prevent distractions you will not see many puppies in the course itself, other than in the Dog Training Classes.
This course is designed to be a complete dog training course for the every day person and is based on real life experiences, real life problems and real life solutions.
Each video in the course has a little summary at the end of the video to quickly recap some of the important points of the video.
Sometimes there will be some additional information in there so make sure you read it.
