Obedience & Behavior Foundations
with Tyler Muto
Coming Soon to DVD

Our online course, Obedience and Behavior Foundations, is coming soon to Leerburg DVD! This DVD is designed to allow a dog and handler to develop all the skills they need to have a solid foundation of obedience and to prepare them for off-leash work or resolving problem behaviors. The DVD (part one) starts with a reward based foundation. Tyler covers in detail the five basic commands that all dogs should know: come, sit, down, heel, and place (go to your dog bed). Tyler gives simple, easy to follow exercises for the general pet owner, as well as in depth theory and advanced concepts for the enthusiast or professional. Beyond simply teaching the dog commands, Obedience Foundations uses traditional commands as a framework for teaching handlers the fundamental skills concepts they will need to succeed in any endeavor.

If you don't want to wait for the DVD, you can sign up for our online self-study course!

There is one concept that I see ignored on a regular basis that permeates everything we seem to do with our dogs.
