About

About the course

Less than 5% of dog owners take their canine friends to a training center. Physically attending classes each week takes commitment, time, and money. Training takes time and patience, but any pet parent will tell you the reward is well worth the hard work.

Whether you need to train your new puppy or you own an older dog with problem behaviors, then this video course is for you. With this online course you can work at your own pace without having to leave the comfort of your own home.

This course is taught by certified dog trainer, Ian Stone, who has over 10 years experience working in animal welfare. He will guide you step-by-step through fundamental concepts, basic training commands, behavior problems, as well as some games and tricks!

Build a stronger relationship with your pup based on respect instead of bribery, and establish yourself as the dominant member of your pack.
