Free Working Spot For A Young Dog Trainer

Our next set of online classes start on Monday, and we’re excited to get to know new trainers and their dogs from different countries. You can still sign up if you want to join the fun.

I often think about how lucky I’ve been to have had grown ups who helped me out when I was young and wanted to train and compete with dogs. From my parents who always supported me by driving me to classes, trainings and competition –and bought dogs for me, to the well known instructors that took me under their wing and helped me access training that I could only dream about with my budget as a young adult. I am so grateful for that.

I feel like passing this favour on. I want to give a young dog trainer and their dog the chance to join our foundation class for free. If you are 25 years old or younger, this is what to do: Like the page on Facebook. Write a comment on the post on our Facebook page and tell us why you want to join our Foundation Class Online. We will wrap the contest up on Monday at 15:00/3 pm CET and let you know the result during the evening.

Are you too old for this competition? Think about how you can help a young person. Give the a ride to a competition? Ask them to come along to a seminar? Train together? It means so much.

    Yesterday I helped with a day-long event for adults who work with youth dog programs (4-H) – about 100 people came! We had a veterinary behaviorist talk about why positive reinforcement training is important for safety, help them know how to find great resources even if there is not a local dog club/training opportunity, and lots of sharing ideas. Your online classes are on the resource list we passed out – hopefully some of them take a look at it!

      would love to be considered for this- but unfortunately not on facebook
      what a cool thing to do ! growing up with dog stuff I was always making it happen on my own, driving hours upon hours as soon as I got my license to go to dog events :o) there have been a lot of people who supported and encouraged me but I also found that being young in the dog world no one ever takes you seriously. now at 22 having access to dog training/competing is even more limited now that I am out on my own and my worries are buying groceries every week. 😛 i am forever looking to learn and expand my knowledge and really enjoyed the course work from when Zae was a puppy and would love to do some training with him now with you too. such a great opportunity you’re offering and will definitely make someones day.

        I have trained my dogs at home and others too. Remember, dogs love to be in pack and they are eager to learn from their master and so it gets easier to train them. But you need to start early while they are puppies. You can start training your puppy when they are a month or 2 old. A puppy learns way faster than a grown up dog.

        There are few Dos and Don’ts which you need to remember though:

        * Start training before they eat
        * Start early morning, a dog is most active in the morning
        * Be the pack leader, take them for a walk, build a good relationship between you and your pooch
        * Don’t scold them if they disobey at first
        * Have patience, they will forget the first or the second or even the third time
        * Appreciate and love your pooch when he/she does something great
        * Remember, even they also love getting trained, as it keeps them busy & active. You just to need to do it right.

        That’s all!! These are the basic rules you gotta remember.

        Usually I recommend to my friends to buy “Brain Training for Dogs” Program to train their dogs. This is an ebook and online training program that aims to develop the dogs brain to increase focus and ability to understand commands.

        This is a truly effective program and a steal at its price compared to the hundreds of dollars that you might pay to have a dog trainer teach your dog valuable skills. It’s an easy understandable product designed to train your dog and developed by someone who’s a professional in the field.

        Not only does it build your bonds but also increases your dog’s thinking abilities. The only potential problem is the fact that the included videos have some sound issues. Adrienne (author) can be heard in them but the sound is a bit interrupted because of the wind or distance. However this is a minor setback against all the good that the program can do.

        I won’t claim that you only need one book or video to give you a good knowledge of raising a dog: in fact I would advise against it. Buying two or three books and reading them thoroughly is the sensible thing to do. At then end of your reading I am confident that “Brain Training for Dogs” will give you a vast amount of important information that the others don’t even mention and will be the book that you regularly refer to whilst educating your own dog.
