This site was launched in December 2017 as a go-to site for dog lovers and (prospective) dog or puppy owners who want to save hours or even months of their valuable time on dog training that doesn’t work.
If you’ve recently acquired a “new” dog or puppy and don’t know where to start with training him/her, you’ll feel right at home here. The common belief that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” isn’t true. The reason why people often fail here is that they go about it the wrong way. Offering treats and using clicker devices are notoriously ineffective.
Dogs are, by nature, pack animals. They have the instinct to follow a leader. Show them how to accept you as the leader of the pack, and they will want to obey your rules!
Even if you’ve been keeping dogs for years, the learning never stops. You’ll discover more and more about your canine friends as time goes by. Enjoy the journey!
