Your dog can love you but not respect you.
When the average person gets a new dog, they think that taking that dog to an 8 week obedience class is going to teach their dog to be a calm, friendly, submissive member of their family. With many dogs, nothing could be further from the truth.
What new owners need to learn, is how to teach their dogs the rules they are expected to follow in our home. That’s what this course is all about.
Ed Frawley and his wife, Cindy, live with 5 house dogs. Two little dogs (a Shitzu and Border Terrier) and three large breed dogs (an Australian Cattle Dog and 2 Belgium Malinoise). Two of those dogs can never be loose along in the house, two can never be loose with the smaller dogs.
The fact is when dog’s are managed properly they need very little formal obedience training. In fact dog’s that go through a sound management program learn to respect their new owners, not because they were corrected into submission, but because they learn their owners control every aspect of their life and that there are consequences to bad behavior. Those consequences only need to be a loss of certain freedoms they have earned.
In 2017 Ed turned 70 years old. He has spent his life training dogs. Ed has been producing dog training videos since 1982. Ed was a Police K9 handler for 10 years, he bred working bloodline German Shepherds for 35 years. It’s safe to say that very few people in this country have the dog experiences Ed has.
The goal of this course is to teach new dog owners how to live with their dog. Ed explains how he and Cindy set up their home to safely manage their dogs in a logical safe manner. You can do the same.
You will learn hows to manage your dog dogs on walks, in the car and in the home. You will learn how to safely introduce a new dog (or cat or person) into your home.
If you have a new dog or a dog with behavioral problems, you need the information in this course. Its not the only training you will ever need, but if you do what Ed says you will establish a foundation for all further dog training.
