Welcome to Family Dog Manners!
Family Dog Manners will teach you the skills to have a well-mannered dog who is fun to live with.
We will focus on teaching our dogs what the meaning and expectations are behind our words, such as sit, down and stay along with loose leash walking.
The first section of this course focuses on teaching the basics about how dogs learn and training skills. Using the information highlighted in this section, you will also improve your relationship with your dog and your dog’s focus on you.
The following sections, Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Foundations respectively, have content that develops your knowledge and your dog’s learning. Each section is further broken into numbers and letters. The number lets you know what section you are on and the letters focus on the skill you are teaching your dog. For Example, 2b. Sit and Down, 3b. Next Level Sits and Downs and 4b. Defaults Sits. The games each section will your dog’s skills and will provide new alternatives for stretching your dog’s skills.
This navigation pattern allows you to move quickly to the skills you want to develop in your dog and easily find the material that will you help you level up the behaviors. It also helps to teach dogs to become fluent in new learned behaviors.
Ready, Set, Play!!!
Below are a few “must haves” that we recommend to help you get the most out of this class.
We are glad you are here!!
The Dog Training And Learning Center
Note: The Dog Training And Learning Center DOES NOT recommend or promote the use of aversive equipment such as prong, choke and e-collars. These products use pain and intimation to achieve a desired result.
Note: The Dog Training and Learning Center DOES NOT recommend retractable leashes for loose leash training. The leashes often break or get tangled on the user which can cause skin burns. These leashes always exert pressure and work by having your dog pull against the leash mechanism to move. This prevents your dog from learning good leash manners.
