Dog training has never been more simplified and more effective than right now.  With the proper instruction and the right tools, you can quickly and easily train your dog, of almost any age, faster than you may have ever thought possible.  In as little as 15 to 30 minutes a day, you can teach your dog the foundation of a healthy pet/owner relationship.  This foundation allows a great platform for your dog to grow on.

What are the 5 Commandments of Dog Training?

1. Leash Training

The ability to control your dogs actions while on a leash flows through aspect of yours dogs learning ability.  Keeping your dog from pulling, jumping and chasing while on a leash is the beginning of a beautiful submissive mindset needed to train your dog in all aspects of its daily life.

2. Down/ Sit Commands

A dog in a down position is a submissive dog.  Thus a down dog is showing its submission to you and its respect for your command given.  Many commands easily follow and build from a submissive dog.

3. Stay

The ability to leave your dog in a downed, sitting or standing position builds a new level of trust between dog/owner.  Give your dog the guidance that allows them patience enough to easily stay in a down position for 30-45 minutes.

4. Come

Nothing more frustrating than a dog that does not come on command.  This is especially important in dangerous or hectic situations you may find your dog in.  Teach your dog to approach and sit at your side with only one word!

5. Boundary Training

Sadly dogs are hit and killed by cars all too often. Do you want to be able to trust that your dog will not enter the street unless commanded to?  Give your dog the freedom of no leash, while being able to trust your dogs trained mind and know that your dog will not enter the street even when chasing a ball.

What tools do you need to be an effective teacher?

1. Commandment leash set

The command leash set is 3 different training leashes that are used for different stages and different areas of training.  These leashes are light weight, float and resist mold and mildew. They come in 3 lengths: 8in , 4ft, 12ft

2. Commandment Collar

The commandment collar is an adjustable guardian choke collar.  With overly stubborn dogs, you might need to upgrade to a steel choke chain or possibly a steel spiked choke chain.

3.  Gloves

Gloves are just a precautionary tool and are not required.  They allow you to get a better grip on the commandment leash as well as help protect your hands from possible rope burns and dog bites.

4. Muzzle

A muzzle is also not always required and is a precautionary device.  Although you may feel that your dog would never bite you or anyone, there is a possibility that while in training a dog may show a dominant side and bite you.  If any signs of aggression are shown during training, we strongly suggest a muzzle.
