This course is designed to help you build a strong foundation for your new gun dog puppy. We believe that building an ACTIVE, EAGER, BOLD and CONFIDENT training partner is the first step towards having a great hunting dog.
This series is designed to allow a dog and handler to develop all the skills they need to have a solid foundation of obedience and to prepare them for off-leash work or resolving problem behaviors. The course (part one) starts with a reward based foundation, before diving into leash pressure in Part 2.
Regardless of your ultimate training goals, everything must start with how we raise our puppies. How do we interact with them at a young age while they learn what is appropriate behavior? How do we teach our young dogs how to live in our home? How do we develop the drives needed to train in specific disciplines? In this course, world-renowned dog trainer, Michael Ellis, will teach you exactly how he does just that.
This course shows you eight games that develop and strengthen your relationship with your dog. Each incorporates the principles and techniques of reward-based training. We think you’ll find that these games are fun for both you and your dog.
Introducing a new dog into your home is an enormous responsibility. The amount of work it takes to raise an 8 week old puppy can be overwhelming especially if you do not have a game plan going into it. This course is going to help you develop that plan. While everyone’s lifestyle is different and every dog is different, this course is designed to fit all dogs and people regardless of whether you are raising a working line dog for sport work or a family pet.
