Frequently Asked Questions
Will online training work for my dog?
- Yes, my online training site works by giving you specific exercises to work on that build on the previous exercise. I have been perfecting these exercises for the past 13 years and have helped thousands of dog owners resolve problematic behavior and gain voice control over their dogs through these exercises.
- I provide you with many training tools that include video tutorials, written lessons, and how to articles. You also have the ability to ask me questions directly about any of the lessons. The member’s area has many advantages that dog training books and DVDs are unable to provide.
When is online training not for me?
- If you are experiencing aggressive behavior with your dog that has led to serious injuries to yourself or another person, then I recommend you contact a private trainer or a behaviorist that can assess your dog’s aggressive behavior and work with you one on one. If you are experiencing this type of aggressive behavior, you can contact me for guidance.

What is your Training Method?
- I will teach you how to use positive reinforcement along with correct use of body language to communicate with your dog effectively. I do not use clickers, remote collars, or leash pops to get the dog to respond. I do believe that all of these devices and actions may have their place when used correctly but can become confusing and ineffective when timing and fading procedures are not precise.
- The method I will show you takes you through a teaching phase, a practice phase, and a maintenance phase. You will be using food rewards during the teaching phase, practicing what your dog has learned through intermittent reinforcement, and then maintaining behavior by substituting other types of rewards such as praise and affection.
