Training Lesson Overview

Dog training can be incredibly rewarding, both for you and your dog if you do it the “right way”. Interestingly, the “right way” in dog training seems to be a moving target. Ask five dog trainers the same training related question and there is a good chance you will get five different answers.

This can be really confusing, especially if you are completely new to the realm of dog training. If you are thinking about training your dog, you probably do this because you care about your dog. So how can it be that the first order of business for so many dog trainers is to show you how to use a choke collar, or even worse, a prong collar for “correcting” your dog. If you don’t know better, you are likely to follow such advice right down the historic path of ancient training methods without even realizing it.

This website is all about positive dog training methods. This means in essence that you want to teach your dog how to succeed instead of punishing him for failure.  If you are completely new to the realm of dog training, I highly recommend that you read my section about the fundamentals of dog training before getting into any of the practical exercises listed below. I am going to add content on an ongoing basis so check back frequently. All training lessons are categorized as either “obedience training” (that’s where you will find the classics such as sit, stay or heel) or “tricks and fun” (for the not so serious stuff) or behavior for the outright anoying issues.
