Dog training secrets

Are you, like so many other people, searching for that magic cure to your dogs unwanted behaviour. Would learning the secrets of the professionals help you? If so you have come to the right place. I am about to reveal the secrets that all successful dog trainers use.

Hard work. Patience. A good knowledge of operant conditioning and classical conditioning. A good understanding of dog behaviour. Motivation. Empathy for dogs and their handlers. An understanding of reward levels and schedules.

Not quite what you were looking for? There are no shortcuts or magic spells in dog training. Anyone telling you there is will undoubtedly be after your hard earned cash. Everything you need to know can easily be found online. You just need to know what you are looking for.

If you don’t have the time or energy to learn the skills to train your dog then perhaps you don’t have time to own a dog.
