This video is taken directly from Leerburg's newest interactive online course titled, “Small Dogmanship - Success for Your Small Dog” with instructor Josh Moran. This is one example of how Josh Moran has made some very simple adjustments to his training plan in order to accommodate a dog with a bit smaller stature.
Josh is a very talented dog trainer who has a passion for small dogs, and more importantly, educating people on how to have a successful working relationship with a smaller dog. In this course, Josh will teach people how to take the same techniques we use with our larger dogs and modify them in order to develop a well-trained small dog.
Most people have heard smaller dogs referred to as ankle bitters, less intelligent, less willing to work, or any of the many stereotypes surrounding small dogs. However, they are all wrong. The goal of this course is to prove all of those stereotypes unfounded. Small dogs are extremely intelligent and full of drive. They have amazing personalities and are some of the most versatile animals on the planet. Small dogs can make very well trained companions, and even great working dogs. They can also compete in a variety of dog sports and perform a wide range or services for people.
This is being offered as a fully interactive course. Throughout the 6 modules, Josh will host live chats and critique student video submissions in order to help you through any obstacles that come up along your training path. Leerburg is very excited to get to work with you and help build a great training relationship with you and your smaller dog.
This is something I am SO happy to see! I LOVE the Leerburg courses and videos and have profitted greatly from using them. But there is a HUGE difference in luring a Malinois and luring a miniature breed! I watched and re-watched EVERY sequence with Michael Ellis and the Corgi, Jake, and Cindy with the Border Terrier, Stella. Just trying to figure out how to do some of this training without wrecking my back!!
Thanks Josh for bringing up this CRUCIAL difference in dog training!!!
