Raise & Train Your Puppy/Dog and Resolve Behavior Problems

Subscribe $8.00 / month

Dog training is lots of fun. Reward-based training is quick and easy, enjoyable and fulfilling. In fact, dog-friendly and owner-friendly reward-based techniques are the quickest, easiest and most enjoyable way to train, producing a well-mannered, good-natured, happy and confident dog and building a loving, trusting and enduring relationship.

Ideally, dog training should be seamlessly integrated within all aspects of your dog's daily schedule. It's a life-long process. No one can do it for you, and no one should, you'd be missing out on many of the best aspects of living with a dog.

The Dog Lover’s Library covers all stages of dog training from when you start your search for a new puppy or dog, through puppy training to adolescent and adult dog training. At every stage, you’ll learn how to teach your dog to comply promptly, happily and willingly when off-leash — at home or in the park. In addition to teaching basic manners, a primary focus of the Library is the prevention and resolution of the most common behavior, temperament and training problems.

Hours and hours of videos and podcasts plus four eBooks/Audio Books

You'll learn how to teach your dog a variety of useful instructions, including, Come, Sit, Down, Stand, Stay, Follow, Heel, Hustle, Steady, Speak, Shush, Find your Chewtoy, Find a Person, Off, Take it, Thank You, Go to Your Bed, Go to a Person, Settle Down, Outside, Go Pee, etc., 

After all, training is all about opening communication channels by teaching dogs ESL — English as a Second Language. First, dogs need to understand what we would like them to do and then, training focuses on motivating dogs to engage and pay attention so that they want to do what we would like them to do. Additionally, you’ll learn non-aversive means to effectively deal with non-compliance and misbehavior.

You'll learn how to prevent behavior problems, such as housesoiling, destructive chewing, excessive barking, puppy biting, jumping-up and running away, plus how to effectively correct problems without scaring or hurting your dog. 

You'll learn how to modify your dog's temperament — to teach them to be calmer, more confident and less reactive when left at home alone, or when around people and other dogs.
