Start Solving Your Dog's Behavior Problems Today!

When dogs misbehave, it's bad news for everyone. Bad news for the owners, who often feel angry, frustrated, embarrassed or worried. And bad news for the dogs, many of whom receive nasty punishments they neither understand nor learn anything from.

Worst of all, behavior problems are the #1 terminal illness for pet dogs, as they are the main cause of dogs being surrendered to shelters and ultimately euthanized.

If your dog is behaving in a way that you don't like, NOW is the time to do something about it. These problems don't get better on their own, they only get better as a result of training.

So sign up for the Behavior Problems Compendium and learn how to resolve all of the most common dog behavior problems effectively, without hurting or scaring your dog. Instead, use easy and effective training methods that will improve your dog's behavior and let you get back to enjoying life with your dog!

The Easy Way to Solve Behavior Problems

Don't get upset or nasty when your dog misbehaves. Teach your dog how you want them to behave and motivate them so they want to behave correctly

  • Teach your dog how to occupy themselves when they are unsupervised

  • Give your dog the confidence they need to enjoy the presence of other dogs and people

  • Teach your dog to perform useful behaviors on cue and motivate them so they do so immediately and reliably

This course includes two main sections:

The first section is the Behavior Problems Crash Course provides an overview of the three main types of problems and the three main types of training you'll use to resolve these problems: Household Training, Temperament Training and Obedience Training. Go through this section from beginning to end to get a well-rounded understanding of dog behavior problems.

The second section consists of 18 specific behavior problems. Each section includes a variety of content that is relevant to that problem. This section is intended as reference. If you read all of the separate sections you will encounter some repetition as there are some materials that are helpful for multiple problems. 

Check back regularly as we are currently working on adding new content to this course.
