Basic Dog Training 101

Dog Training for the beginner to intermediate level dog and companion

Ok, I say this is for the beginner because we will cover basic behaviors in this course like sit, stay, and so forth. But going into more advanced behaviors like walking on a loose leash and heeling- (Two separate things- They are not the same!- we'll discuss that more when we get to them!) We have free downloadable that you can printout.As well as having video instructions and a bonus lesson that will or could lead into another course we will be offering real soon and are presently working on as well. Hint: Can you Yoga with your Dog or DOGA?

Enjoy the course and feel free to email me directly with any questions (just put the course title in the subject line) at pamelaschm@optonline.net. Thank You now let's get into the course!
