Dog Training for Living Blog

Welcome!

Training a dog can be a very rewarding experience. The best part of dog training is when you see the wheels turning in your dog’s head and the “light bulb” turns on. Your dog “Gets It!”

Practice is paramount in learning new things. The more you practice the better you get and the better behaved your dog will be. To help you spend more time working with your dog, I’ve made this special Blog Page to keep you up-to-date with new training ideas.
