Basic Dog Obedience Stream

Length: 3 Hours, 49 Minutes, 10 Seconds • Released 10-01-2018

Rating: 4/5 Stars

On Sept 18, 2018, Ed Frawley released a new Basic Dog Obedience DVD, Streaming Video On Demand, and Leerburg Online Course. This was not just an updated version of the original video produced back in 1982 or the many updates since. This DVD and course have 100% new content.

Over the past 30 years, dog training has gone through a number of new exciting evolutions. Those changes are all covered in our new DVD. You can review a detailed outline of the DVD below.

Today, we use reward-based training (marker training) to turn training sessions into games in which our dogs learn new behaviors (I.E. Sit, Down, Come, Walk on a Loose Leash). Our goal is to have a dog that looks forward to the next training session, rather than dread training.

We are balanced dog trainers. This means we train new behaviors motivationally with high-value rewards. In Basic Obedience, we use food rewards. In later training, we use food or toy rewards.

Our goal is for our dogs to generalizing a behavior. This means they understand the command in different situations and locations. But we also realize that every dog will eventually be placed in an environment where the distractions they face in the new environment are more interesting to the dog than our high value reward.

At that point, our dog may need a correction. How much of a correction depends on the age of the dog, the temperament of the dog, the environment we have placed the dog in and what the dog has chosen not to do. There is an entire segment in out course title “The theory of corrections in dog training”. In this segment, you will learn that the purpose of a correction is not to punish a dog for bad behavior, but rather to get a behavior change. We almost always recommend new trainers error on the side of helping their dogs and not correcting their dog.

We use high-value food rewards in our system. We will explain how to determine your dogs’ preference for rewards, we will teach you how to deliver a food reward without getting our fingers pinched and we will explain (in detail) how to fade using food rewards during training.

We will teach you when and how to start using marker training. We demonstrate with 9 week old puppies and 9 year old rescue dogs. You will learn what engagement is, why it is the key to our training program, and how to put engagement on cue.

We want our dogs to become fluent in the basic commands of sit, down, walk on a loose leash and the foundation of the basic recall. We will teach how to add duration to sit and down commands. You will learn what restrained recall games are, along with other games than build your foundation for a recall. We want our dogs to spit out things it picks up on our walks. There is a segment in our video where we show you how to teach the YUCK or LEAVE-IT command.

Our Basic Obedience DVD is exactly what the title implies. There is a ton of information that covers the basic foundation of dog training. Our next DVD in the series is titled "Intermediate Dog Training." In the DVD, we take what you have learned in Basic Obedience and expand the training into more complicated behaviors.

What will our DVD teach you?

  • How to develop a basis for simple obedience
  • How to gain control of an unexpected situation with your dog
  • When to and not to correct your dog
  • How to effectively organize a training session
  • How to time your praises (rewards)

The way you are presenting and the setup of the format is almost better than playing with my Dog. Thank you! Ned Murphy

5/5 Stars... 9/10 Stars if it were 10.
This was a great explanation and video glossary of training basics and principles for operant conditioning.
The only missing thing that could have easily been provided were examples of dog training plans (reps, duration etc).
I understand with limited time in the video, we can't assume everything would be covered but all in all, this was fantastic and I recommend it to everyone who is embarking upon the endeavor of dog training.
Cheers
Make a plan and follow it.

Great information. Easy to understand and follow. It answered several questions I had and reinforced some things I was already doing. It also helped with putting things in perspective. I highly recommend this to anyone starting out in dog training.

Mr Frawley,

I enjoy your dogs. I also really like the tree idea for jumpy dogs. I work with a lot of women who buy these giant dogs for protection and they like to jump on them and everyone else. Even a very small person can use this technique effectively. It also limits the chances of redirected aggression. Hope you don't mind if I use it.

Thank you,

EXCELLENT VIDEO!! Every dog owner should have this video. Even if you are a dog trainer already you should get it just for review. I've gotten 4 videos so far and look at them over and over again and it's always something that I missed the first time I watched it.

Great job Ed!!

FANTASTIC VIDEO! This video has blessed our family greatly with our Alpha Female Shepherd Shalom. We are amazed in how quickly our 4 mo old Shepherd has grown to be such a great dog thanks to applying Ed's advice. I have applied it and seen the results.
All dog owners should have his DVDs. Our family bought Pack Structure, Basic Obedience, Puppy 8 Weeks to..., How to raise a Working Puppy... they are full of great information and wisdom.

Thanks Ed and Staff!

It's a very well done video. I just used the on-demand streaming video, and I did not have any problem and started learning just after pay. A lot of information is provided in the DVD, very complete and additional tips to understand training obedience. As Ed Frawley recommends, I will use "Building Drive and Focus" as a complement for training.
