To be a dog trainer, one’s training MUST consist of a large proportion of hands-on experience. Dogs are live creatures and you can not learn how to be a dog trainer without training dogs. Our internet-based courses are mainly “applied.” This means you will be expected to take what you learn, apply it and prove (demonstrate) that you have applied it. How can this be done over the internet? Through the rich capability of the medium of course delivery used at e-Training for Dogs, Inc., we rely heavily on in-class discussion, presentation and VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS. This means YOU will have to video your progress working with the dog in whatever homework you are given and send it to your professor who will often share it in class. You will have to demonstrate your progress working with a dog. We are not a mail order school.

Founded in 2004 by , Canine Higher Learning offers group training classes at all levels from basic obedience to advanced and competition dog sports, including Agility and Flyball.Dave shared a statistic with us that learning can occur 50% quicker with a clicker for these reasons. And this ironically occurred just after a trainer clicked seconds late, accidentally marking the wrong behavior of her dog. Guess which behavior her dog repeated? I have seen that happen before also. A lot of behaviors can take place in a matter of seconds – a head turn, movement, tail wag to name a few – and whichever behavior occurs just before the click is the one that you are marking.As a (CPDT-KA) Cecilia is a Professional Member of the (APDT).

Learning affects behavior, and for the purpose of this blog, I'll be focusing on canine behavior. Understanding how dogs learn can assist you in getting inside the minds of your four-legged friends to help you get the behavior you want from your dog while eliminating behavior that is unsafe, unhealthy or unwanted. Once you understand your role with what your dog learns by understanding how he learns, you'll have much more success with your training.Every breed of dog should learn basic obedience. Great advances in obedience training methods have been made in the past decade involving the use of food, play or praise as motivation.Think "Consequences" - or the fact that dogs learn through actions resulting in rewards or punishments. For example: You have trained your dog to sit and become calm before putting the leash on to go for a walk. In this case the dog must perform a voluntary action of sitting and relaxing. If he complies, Fido enjoys the reward of going for a walk. If he doesn't sit and relax, he is denied the walk (which is a punishment). Either way, Fido's behavior has a consequence. This is a trained or learned behavior where an operation or series of operations will yield either wanted or unwanted results.
