The Biggest and Costliest Mistake Puppy Owners Make
Want to know how to train a puppy to behave? Don’t enroll your new puppy in puppy pre-school, puppy training classes, puppy obedience school…it’s the biggest and costliest mistake puppy owners can make! Right now thousands of puppy owners around the world are enrolling their new puppies in these types of (expensive!) classes, in the hopes of ending up with good, well-behaved dogs who are safe and under control.
Obedience Classes Aren’t the Answer
But what if I told you that attending all these classes and spending hundreds of dollars on puppy training techniques does NOT guarantee you’ll achieve this? What people learn at puppy obedience school is how to get their puppies to follow commands in a controlled environment. There is some socialization, which is great if it’s done right. But the really important information about training a puppy is usually completely overlooked. Understanding, for example, that learning to be seen as the pack leader by your puppy is crucial in preventing serious issues from arising to begin with. What you need is a method of training that is effective when they are young and then continues to work as your dog grows into adulthood.
One of the best sites where you can watch and learn about these really important topics is Doggy Dan’s video website, The Online Dog Trainer. On this site, you can actually watch professional dog trainer, Doggy Dan, raising his (absolutely freaking adorable) puppy, Moses, from eight weeks of age right through to eight months and beyond.

Here is a Classic Example of a Lady Who Spent Hundreds of Dollars on Puppy Training and is Now Looking for Help:
Here is her email to The Online Dog Trainer website:
“Hi. I got a little puppy for my 30th birthday last year who, for the most part, has been well behaved. I took her to two puppy schools and training classes. She did very well and was a quick learner. However, she’s about 15 months old now and over the last few months, her behavior has gotten worse. Here is a list of what I’m dealing with at the moment:
– Barking and growling. She is constantly growling out the windows at nothing. Anything can set her off – birds, the neighbors, trees moving, dogs, kids toys on the lawn next door, anything! Once she starts barking, she gets fixated on it. This is her biggest problem and it is extremely frustrating not only to us also our neighbors.
-When she wants attention, she will nip at me. It hurts!
– She doesn’t seem to know how to relax. She seems unable to occupy herself and is constantly following me around.
– We can’t leave her outside by herself because her barking just won’t stop.
Poppy has a sweet personality, but the barking and attention seeking is very frustrating and I would very much like it if she could relax and be happier. Please, can you help us?

It Would’ve Been So Much Easier to Prevent This in the First Place
In following up with this lady, it was discovered that the total cost of training so far for this puppy was close to $500! Now she was wanting help to stop the following serious issues: BARKING, FIXATIONS, GROWLING, CAN’T RELAX, NIPPING FOR ATTENTION, FOLLOWING EVERYWHERE. So…what was the point of puppy pre-school and puppy training? Getting the dog to sit and stay? So much time, effort and money was spent on training this puppy to sit, lay down, and stay, yet look where the owner ended up. What was missing is that nobody taught this new puppy owner the importance of becoming the pack leader, and this is the real cause of ALL of these issues. When a dog thinks that they are the pack leader, they will bark to protect the property, they will follow their owners around to protect them…it all links back to becoming the pack leader and relieving your puppy of that responsibility so they can relax and enjoy life knowing that you are in charge. Training your puppy to understand commands should be a part of puppy training, but it certainly shouldn’t be the main focus.
