Train Your Dog at Home, for Less than the Cost of a Group Class or Single In-Person Training Session

Training your dog is essential to their wellbeing and happiness, as well as your peace of mind.

However, that’s easier said than done.

Whether you have a puppy or an older dog who just won’t listen—training them can be tedious, time-consuming and costly. You and your puppy deserve the happiness that comes from great training.

That’s exactly why Puppy Training Basics was created.

Puppy Training Basics was Created with You and Your Four-Legged Companion in Mind

Regardless of the age of your dog—whether its eight-weeks or eight-years—you can help them adjust their behavior with a few key training exercises.

These are the methods that dog trainers charge you hundreds of dollars per session; and if your dog doesn’t play well with others, taking them to a physical training spot might be out of the question.

Puppy Training Basics alleviates all those problems for you and allows your furry friend to learn in an environment that makes them most comfortable: home.

This course will help your dog build a solid foundation of behavior, as well as help you to build confidence, learn to read your dog’s body language and understand their behavior.

Expect your furry companion to learn lots!

  • I have sibling German Shepherds and this course has been such a help.

    Cheaper than enrolling both of them in a group class and a time saver because I don’t have to leave my house and go to training.

    They already knew how to sit and down but I’ve already taught them to look and to stop jumping.

  • I got this course one week before I got my puppy. Tons of good stuff, and the section on a new puppy has helped me a lot, especially potty training and puppy biting.

    — Shad Anderson
  • My six-year-old Border Collie Mix Pepper had become out of control pulling and jumping on people.

    A private trainer tried to sell me on a shock collar with an expensive training package. I bought this course instead and bought a prong collar.

    The prong collar training worked immediately. I can now walk Pepper under complete control and take her places with confidence. This course saved me a ton of time and money.

    Thank You!

  • Very good information, I will be incorporating the prong collar when my pup is old enough. He is only 3 months at the moment.

    — Rose Spakosky
  • My boy Ruger is a Rotti Pit mix and way too big and strong to be pulling on leash.

    I’ve never used a prong collar on previous dogs and was a little hesitant.

    This training course convinced me to try it, and it has been a game-changer.

    I bought one for my older dog, and the hubs and I can walk both of our dogs without pulling, lunging, and barking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?

Puppy and dog owners who want to learn and implement basic obedience techniques from the comfort of their homes.

Is this training only for puppies?

No! If you have an older dog that is not listening or displaying behavioral issues this course will help you get back to basics and work on building a solid foundation.

Is this course only for German Shepherds?

No! The basic obedience techniques taught in this course work for all breeds.

What training methods are taught in this course?

Positive reinforcement, motivational rewards and the safe and proper use of a corrective collar.

I explain why a prong collar is safer than using a choke chain or flat collar and demonstrate how to properly fit and use a prong collar.

Techniques used with the prong collar can be implemented with a front clip harness or a halter head harness if preferred.

If you are 1,000% against any form of corrective training and not willing to have an open mind, this course is not for you.

What if I'm not sure I want to use a prong collar?

The techniques I demonstrate with the prong collar can be implemented with a front clip harness or a head halter if preferred.

If the harness or head halter doesn't work or stops working for your dog, (pulling or jumping starts to occur) you can revisit implementing a prong collar.

If you are 1,000% against any form of corrective training and not willing to have an open mind, this course is not for you.
