This course curriculum is recommended for every dog owner that wants to take on the task of teaching their dog the basics. Included are the training principals every dog and owner should have to build a successful relationship. All the commands needed to move on to more advanced training are covered in the class. In the course we aim for mastery of skill right from the start and will teach owners to pick out habits that can transform into undesirable behaviors.
Understanding that you start influencing a dog from the second you hold the leash and taking advantage of those dog learning capabilities will successfully create good behavior. Dog ownership should not be difficult and training should be reliable!
