How to Train a Puppy
A lot of people try to learn about puppy training by buying a book. Hundreds of books have been written on the subject of training puppies and dogs, but reading books and trying to remember and implement what you've read can be a daunting and nearly impossible task.
Some people turn to dog obedience classes as an option. Dog obedience classes can cost from $50 - $150 for a month or two of group classes at a pet store, to $250 - $750 for six to eight private sessions with a trainer. For some folks this can be an expensive proposition. It can also be difficult to fit classes into a busy schedule. While classes are a popular option, there is only so much you and the dog can learn in a matter of six to eight hours of training. Often times, classes don't address the specific training that your dog needs.
Books and classes are choices that can work for some people, but I decided to research different options that I thought would be better to recommend for new or even experienced puppy owners. During my research, I discovered a unique way of training puppies and dogs, without spending a lot of money or hours of reading books. This "Hands Off Dog Training" method I found is very effective, inexpensive and can be referenced through an MP3 player, cd player, laptop, etc, as well as with a written guide, all while you are doing the actual training! It is truely one of the most comprehensive training resources that I have ever come across. I have trained several dogs of my own over the years, but this technique made me rethink all of the things I did when training dogs in the past.
Without getting into too much detail here, I will just list some of the highlights of the training available in this unique discovery:
...all this and much, much more!
The training is highy segmented allowing you to target different aspects that meet your needs. The trainer understands and takes into consideration that just like human individuals, all dogs learn at a different pace. The training shows you different methods that can be used to teach the same command. It encourages short training sessions tailored to the age and attention span of the dog.
It will also show you how to incorporate training into daily life instead of having just formal training sessions.
The training can be used as a supplement to formal classes or other information you may already have, or to address a specific problem your dog is exibiting.
Best of all, the training is done without using shock collars, yelling, threats or swatting. We have arranged for you to download a free dog training video to see just how effective the "Hands Off" approach to puppy and dog training can be. We hope you find this method of training your puppy as effective and worthwhile as we do.
