The majority of dog owners only use their leash when taking their dog for a walk. A large number of those people are being pulled down the street each and every time they attempt to walk their dog. No one enjoys this experience, which is why we have produced this course on how to use your leash as a tool to communicate with your dog. Through a process called "leash pressure," we can teach the dog how to politely walk on the leash by implementing the skill we call "Loose Leash Walking."

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.

He explains how different sizes, textures, and types of tugs effect drive levels in dogs. He explains how to increase prey drive through proper tug selection and presentation.

$1,000.00

This 16 week course is offered in 2 formats: Self-study and Interactive. The self-study course is $1,000.00 and the interactive course is $1,600.00. The interactive course is limited to 20 students at one time. Both have the exact same video content, but the interactive course has direct access to Michael Ellis and his instructors. Michael gives weekly homework assignments in which students are asked to video tape their training session so Michael can observe and offer advice, he also answers forum questions, and has weekly live chats where he answers student questions. The self-study course has no direct contact with Michael in the forums, no homework, and no weekly live chats. The skills learned throughout this 16 week course are going to carry over into every aspect of your training program and handler relationship. The outline of course content is listed in the description of the course.
