What is the Base Training Method?

Base Training is an online course that instructs you on how to break down any behavioral issue into a manageable step by step training program. The secret to success in behavioral training is to create a foundation – or base – that can be systematically built upon. Many trainers try to rush the process. Skipping steps leads to frustration, confusion and an endless amount of failed training attempts.

A weak foundation can lead to major road blocks down the road.

Base training sessions are 5-10 minutes in length and builds off of itself. You’ll start training in the comfort of your living room and learn how to weave training into practical, real life situations. 

If you are looking for a structured training program, step by step instructions, and training that will make you feel proud of your dog’s successes and confident in your dog’s abilities – this is the program for you.
