Eight Important Tips

For Training The Purpose-Bred Or “Stubborn” Dog


This book is the result of many years of training breeds of dogs that are not considered competition “material” when it comes to dog sports, or that are seen as difficult or stubborn.

Recreational Dog Sledding Online Course

This course uses positive reinforcement to train your dog to pull a sled. Traditionally, sledding is trained with force, simply putting a dog in harness and expecting him to pull or not pull.

I created this step by step method by combining information I learned through reading, taking workshops and training my own dogs to pull. If you are working with one dog, or working by yourself, this course will be particularly useful. You can also use the info in this course to have you dog pull you on skis, although I can’t teach you how to stay upright on them, since I can’t myself. That is the reason I started using a kick sled – because I was a lousy skier. To access more course info click HERE or on the title above.



“Useful Tricks” Online Course

In this course (which is free) you will learn how to teach your dog necessary behaviours by training “useful tricks”. Most of the time “tricks” are seen ad silly circus fun, but in reality, dogs don’t differentiate between circus tricks and behaviours that we want them to learn for life with us. They only know how much fun they are having or not having while learning.

Teach your dog to LOVE to learn through the “Useful Tricks” course and see an improvement in regular behaviours at the same time. Go HERE for more course info.
