Leerburg's Relationship Games Online Course

Leerburg's Relationship Games Course

Whether you own a dog as a house pet or you are training in high level competition, establishing a working relationship with your dog is one of the most important prerequisites for any training regimen. Regardless of how you apply your training or the methods you plan to use, building a relationship with your dog must come first. This course will help you build that relationship through 8 different games, with training being the main idea behind each game while also making it fun for you and your dog at the same time.

Everyone can benefit from these games. We have presented them in a way that someone with no experience training dogs can understand the "what" and the "why" of the game. We have incorporated a plethora of information into each game, so an experienced dog trainer can learn new tricks to incorporate into their groundwork.

Each of these games will also help establish the ground work for many of your more advanced obedience behaviors. Each game also has many real-world applications. For example, the "food on the floor" game will help your dog learn impulse control and at the same time your dog will learn not to eat food that you drop or leave out. We turn the restrained recall, which is the foundation to a formal recall, into a fun game for the entire family. These games are meant to be fun for you and your dog, while at the same time offering huge training benefits.

This is an 8 week course. You will learn 2 new games each week, except for week 3. We felt that the recall is by far the most important behavior to teach a dog. Therefore we dedicated the entire week to nothing but restrained recalls.

If you already have the Relationship Games DVD that goes along with this course you will have a head start but there is still more to learn. This course will cover what is in the DVD along with more examples, instructor feedback, 4 new games, and most importantly, interaction with your fellow students.

By the end of this 8 week course you will have an amazing relationship with your dog. All of our games have practical applications in themselves. However, we have organized them in a way to help build the level of engagement with your dog. This translates into a dog who wants to be with you, wants what you have, and most importantly wants to learn. Training should be fun for both you and your dog. This course is going to be fun and beneficial for both.

Question: Can you recommend some healthy natural supplements for my 12 year old Border Collie?

Hello. My 12 year old Border Collie has been getting peri-anal tumors for the last two years. I don't know what to do to help him. He is slim, doesn't like to eat, very energetic, but tires sooner than before, alert when awake, but like his naps now that he is aging. What can you recommend? We tried Darwin's raw food, but he did not eat at all for days and he is underweight, so I gave him his cooked hamburger, chicken, plus kibble earthborn. I really need help please.


Cindy's Response:

Since your dog is older and has a pre-existing health issue I would suggest that you get in touch with my holistic/homeopathic vet, Dr. Levy. She would be the expert on supplements to try for your dog, she does phone or email consults. 

Here is her website, 

I highly recommend Dr. Levy, she's awesome. 

Good luck, 
Cindy Rhodes


Thank you for your recommendation of Dr. Levy.  We have had our initial consultation and I am very impressed. I love my dog and will do what is best for him ....

On Leerburg's Educator K9 400TS Tactical E-Collar

I bought the 2-dog model a while back and am very happy with it: transmitter fits easily in hand, is easy to use and provides clear visual feedback; lock and set and auto-bump feature is configured separately for each dog; blunt stimulation is very effective but less stressful on dog; buzzer feature can be useful in several ways; you can turn on a light to help keep track of your dog at night; receiver size is smaller than that on most other e-collars. But be sure to read the instruction book carefully, understand when and how to use an e-collar (Ellis's videos are great on this) and start by practicing on yourself or, even better, with a human partner to get your timing right. Works fine for my 70-lb Malamute and 50-pound hound. If I had larger, more stubborn/aggressive dogs, I might have chosen a different model, but from what I've seen the Einstein/Educator product line is great. (I am familiar with a few other brands.)
