Description

Most dog owners suffer from the same problem. Their dog is really well behaved at home when they are getting cuddles on the couch but outside they become completely invisible to them. The dogs are far too interested in chasing every squirrel, rabbit or other dog they see than they are on being with the owner.

This short course will change all that by showing how you can quickly make yourself more interesting to your dog so he actually wants to be with you.

Using positive, practical and easy to understand dog training techniques you will learn;

  • Where to train and play with your dog so you can quickly start getting his attention
  • What exactly you should use to play with your dog - no expensive dog training equipment or toys required.
  • How to use food to play and interact with your dog
  • Some simple games you can play using toys and food that your dog will love playing.
  • How to teach your dog to enjoy retrieving and tuggy games.

This foundational dog training course can be watched in under an hour so you can start implementing the training lessons straight away - today even! All of the training techniques are based on modern, positive training methods as practised and taught by the worlds leading dog trainers.
