Basic Dog Obedience Online Course Overview

Posted: 02-03-2014 • Length: 24 Minutes, 47 Seconds
Categories: Basic Obedience, Leerburg Training Videos
If I was going to take an online course in any subject, I would want to know exactly what that course was going to teach me. By that, I mean I would want to know more than just the title of the course. I had that criterion in mind when I produced this video on my Basic Dog Obedience course.

My Basic Obedience course is 6 weeks long. Each week is divided into a number of segments. The course has over 150 short videos that cover the most important aspects of learning how to train a family pet. These vary in time from 30 seconds up.

I have also included the streaming version of our 4-hour DVD titled Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet (which sells separately for $40.00) and the streaming version of our 3 1/2-hour DVD titled The Power of Training Dogs with Markers (which also sells separately).

This course is designed for people who are new dog owners and have never trained a dog before, as well as for those who have owned a dog for years but now find it's time to learn how to do a better job training their dog.

The course can also be recommended for people who work at Humane Societies or shelters, or people who want to start a dog training business and are looking for a way to start learning the nuts and bolts of dog training.

In our opinion, students can learn a great deal from our online course, far more than they can learn from a DVD. But with this said, we still recommend that students get hands-on instruction under the tutelage of an instructor like Michael Ellis or others who share our philosophy on dog training in a balanced reward-based system.

I produced my first Basic Dog Obedience video (VHS) back in 1982. Since then, I have updated the material in the videos and DVDs 7 or 8 times. The online course is a culmination of 32 years of work. It is very good. We have gone through a Beta testing program with 25 students from around the world and got excellent reviews.

Wow. Simply, wow. My search for organized, quality, serious, thoughtful, and effective dog training instruction is over. I am absolutely over the moon to have found Leerburg and cannot wait to begin the journey of a life-long customer.
