A trained dog gets to be inside when visitors arrive because they don't bark at the door bell or jump all over your guests.
A trained dog gets to go for walks and outings with the family because they don't pull on the lead or bark and lunge at everything that goes past.
A trained dog gets to hang out with the family because, they can relax and lie down when told to. Even if you're eating dinner, the baby is playing on the floor, the kids are on the trampoline or you're doing the housework.
A trained dog gets to feel like part of the family, a pack member.
I know with access to the Dogmanship Training Academy you WILL have a well-behaved dog you can be proud of. But don't just take my word for it... here's a few words from our members!
Is this program the right fit for you?
If your dog is physically fit and healthy then your dog is not too old! I have trained many dogs 8 years and over with absolutely no issues! However, old dogs have had many years to establish bad habits and so in some cases it can take slightly longer to establish new habits but it's 100% possible!
Yes! The sooner you start the better. There is an entire module dedicated to puppies less than 4.5 months old.
Absolutely! I have followed this exact method while rehabilitating countless foster dogs. Not only is it effective but it will help you build a relationship with the dog based on mutual trust and respect which is something your dog may have never experienced before.
Yes. All breeds have certain tendencies and behaviour traits however the basis of all effective training is finding what does and doesn't motivate your dog. I can't tell you how often people contact me because they've heard their breed is incapable of learning to listen. Every breed can learn, you just have to speak their language.
What is your goal? If you want your dog to stop banging on the door because they've been put outside while you're inside (for example) and stop having major reactions to minor triggers then YES this will absolutely work.
If your goal is to completely eliminate anxiety then you need to consider that anxiety often can't be cured but can be managed just like with humans.
The beauty of this method is that is creates SO much clarity in the dog's life. There's a huge focus on pattern learning and creating structure in a way that fits seamlessly with your life. This is EXACTLY what anxious dogs NEED to thrive and live their best lives!
I have worked with many anxious dogs who's anxiety was non-existent after and others who's anxiety was greatly reduced and far more manageable. Either way the results you get from this program will have a huge impact on your dog's well-being and will help you stop feeling like you're constantly managing your life around your dog's anxiety.
Aggression is a symptom of an underlying problem. That being said, not every dog is going to be a trustworthy social butterfly, BUT every dog should be able to walk down the street without growling/lunging/barking at other dogs going past.
When working with dogs displaying aggression there are two possible outcomes:
1- The dog can interact with other dogs in controlled environments.
2- The dog is not reliably safe to have interacting with other dogs but can be within very close proximity without being reactive.
I have numerous dogs in my group classes who originally started my programs because of aggression issues and as you can see they learn to manage their emotions.
This program covers the same methods I use for this issue BUT I recommend you seek 1:1 help from a trainer to ensure the safety of everyone involved. So no, this program is not for you unless used in conjunction with private lessons.
Unfortunately the doors the Dogmanship Training Academy are currently closed so that I can focus on the current members getting AMAZING results!
BUT don't worry they will re-open soon!
