How Can the Canine Coaching Course Help You?

Private dog training at it’s best!

Through this four-session Canine Coaching Course, you will transform into your dog’s life coach as you learn how to train a dog. You will…

  1. Learn the basics of canine learning theory
  2. Learn key principles and concepts of dog training
  3. Practice implementing the theory into practice in a way that allows you to create your own solutions to less-productive dog behavior
  4. Teach your dog basic skills while you learn

Here is Amy R.'s Experience of the Canine Coaching Course (Complete Puppy Package)

Bo is exactly who we needed. He showed not only myself but our children how to train our pup in such a positive way, it amazes me! I’ve always leaned towards the “Alpha” training philosophy but after our 7 weeks with Bo, never again. …

It’s a wonderful thing to see a dog respond so positively to training from even my 9 year old son. Bo has given us the knowledge to continue giving our pup the positive, stress-free structure we all desire. It’s such an amazing thing to witness our pup learn to correct his own unwanted behavior in a non-violent way with just a few minutes of positive training that we learned from Bo. He gives you the tools to create an amazing bond with your pet. His methods become part of your every day life that before you know it, you aren’t taking 15 minutes here and there to teach. He helps you to interact with you pet that the positive reinforcement training becomes part of daily life. Before you know it, you and your pet are happily living together.

I just can not express how wonderful our time with Bo has been. I’m looking forward to taking Odin to Puppy Gym and watching the magic happen again. Best decision we made for us and Odin. I recommend spending time with Bo to everyone!

The Perfect Course for Any New Dog or Puppy

“What do I wish that someone had taught me when I adopted Loki and brought him into my life?” That question led to the creation of this course.

I made a lot of mistakes back then. I’ve since learned how I could have done so much better. 

I know what it’s like to be frustrated by my dog. Now, you can benefit from my personal experience and raise your dog to thrive in your household and to become a powerful source of joy instead as you learn to…

The earlier you start, the better. 

If you want to integrate your new pup into your family using only loving methods, then this course is for you.

What's the Agenda for the Canine Coaching Course

Session 1: The Basics

We begin with an overview of the science that drives my dog training. We will discuss how dogs learn, as well as how training methods affect dogs and what they learn. You will come to understand why a truly science-based approach is also a force-free approach, which avoids the use of intimidation, fear, pain, and violence.

Then, you will learn the proper way to use markers and reinforcers. If you are familiar with “clicker training”, a clicker is a form of marker. In the course, you will learn how to do “clicker training” without needing to use an actual clicker.

Our first major exercises revolve around the concept of “luring”. You will learn about how lures work, how to use them properly, and how to fade them out so you don’t run the danger of “bribing” your dog to perform tasks.

Session 2: Shaping Behaviors

In our second session, we move beyond luring and into shaping. Success breeds success, so I want to set your dog up for success. I will show you how to work in increments to “shape” the specific behaviors that you want. As you see your dog’s performance improve, you will be able to see how powerful incremental learning is, and you will come to realize how you can shape nearly any behavior.

Session 3: Impulse Control

In our third session, I’m going to help you understand why your dog sometimes seems “out of control” and show you ways to work with that energy. When I say “with”, I don’t mean “against”. In other words, I’m not looking at ways to stop the unproductive energy, but rather ways to redirect and transform it into productive energy. As you come to understand your dog better and engage your dog with impulse-control games, your dog will become more attentive and responsive in real-life situations.

Session 4: Strengthening Your Bond

The relationship shared between human and canine companions is the foundation of all your training. Let’s nurture and strengthen that bond. In this last session, I will show you some practical exercises that are specifically geared toward strengthening your dog’s ability to trust you. Along with that, I’m going to introduce you to some concepts and techniques to strengthen all of the behaviors that your dog has learned through this class (and indeed will learn throughout life as you continue to train).
