Q. I was wondering if you could provide some more information about the Michael Ellis On the Road event that is being held at Leerburg in December.
I was wondering if you could provide some more information about the Michael Ellis On the Road event that is being held at Leerburg in December. How does this program compare to the various courses offered at the Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers? Is there a certification offered after completion of this event? Does the format of the class include both lecture and hands on work with dogs?

A. This is a condensed version of some of the classes at Michael's school. One day will be engagement & communication, the next day will be Motivation and how to use it in your training and the 3rd day will be Finishing work, proofing, weaning off of rewards and introducing corrections. There is no certification offered as this is just a sampling of the more popular classes and it's only a 3-day event. We will be having a meet & greet social at Leerburg the evening before the event as well as give aways and silent auctions throughout the entire 3 days.

There will be lecture and dog work. The dog & handler teams that will be working with Michael will be pre-selected via a questionnaire and video audition and will be selected for their relevance to the topic of the day. More details will be coming on that as we get through the summer. The dog/handler teams that are selected to work with Michael must already be registered for the event to be considered and will pay an additional fee for the working spot. I believe we will be selecting 10 dog/handler teams each day (30 total) We are expecting a great time and a big turnout.

I hope this helps!! We hope to see you there!

This DVD is 4 hours long. The purpose of this Leerburg training DVD is teach you the art of dog training. It's our goal to show you that dog training is not rocket science it's 100% common sense. There are no "Tricks or Secrets of the Trade." Dog training is an art that you can learn if you're willing to put your mind to it. The best dog trainers know how to build a bond based on two way respect between the dog and the handler. These trainers know how to motivate a dog to want to learn. They understand how and when to apply distractions during training so they can show the dog that it must mind under all circumstances.

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.
