Get to the Root Cause of Your Dog’s Behavior Issues

The key to success is in training is to have a solid plan that breaks the biggest goals down into small, easy to learn, steps. I can help!

Step 1

The Right Tools, a Solid Training Plan

You need the right tools.

The right tools will ensure that you get maximum benefit from time invested in training. I’ll send you my personal must have training supplies list. I’ve spent thousands of dollars researching products, to make sure that you are getting the most bang for your buck.

You need a solid training plan.

Everybody has advice about training. Most of the advice you get off the internet or from family or friends will do more harm than good. Other advice might have some value, but out of context, it’s hard to know how or when to apply it. My training plan gives you a big picture look at how all the different pieces of the training puzzle fits together.

Why is this different?

This is the most effective form of training available. Why? Here are three big reasons why this training is exactly what you’ve been looking for. You will walk away with training that will wow your family and friends.

01

Rock solid foundation

It starts off by establishing a rock solid foundation that can easily be applied in real world situations. The training will be broken down so that it’s easy to learn and fun to practice. It will easily become the highlight of your dog’s day.

02

Real world situations

We will integrate the training into real world situations that normally trigger high levels of stress or high levels of arousal. The focus here is not to make your dog into a robot, but to help your dog regulate big emotional responses.

03

There’s NO wrong answers

There’s no wrong answers, just information. Even if a training session does not go according to plan you will still walk away with important information that will help you set the stage for success in your next session. It’s ok for your dog to become nervous or excited, but there are times where those responses spiral out of control, and I can show you how to help your dog think through those challenges effectively.

Myth busting

There is a big mis-understanding when it comes to behavioral training, here are 3 myths:

01

Quick fixes

There are no silver bullets, or magic wands. Anybody that promises otherwise is probably a better salesman than they are a trainer. Good training is a process, and can take time, but the result is a happy, healthy dog, and a joyful connection that is based on solid communication and trust. Younger dogs with mild to moderate behavioral issues will show impressive behavior change in 3-6 months. Older dogs or those with more intense behavioral issues may need more time.

02

Dogs aren’t robots

Good behavioral training is all about helping dogs to regulate stress and over-arousal, while giving them the skills they need to adapt to our busy, modern world. This training is all about bringing out the best in our dogs, and in doing so, helping them to live a more fulfilling life.

03

“My dog isn’t trainable”

Some people believe that some breeds don’t respond to training, or that some dogs are too old, or too young, or too “crazy.” None of this is true. Every dog can benefit from the training outlined in our course regardless of age, breed or behavioral issue. That being said, if you don’t believe it’s possible – then you’re probably going to prove yourself right. Take a look at our case studies if you need to be inspired. If you are already a believer – enroll here- and I’ll see you inside the course.
