Obedience training is about more than teaching your dog a set of commands, it builds a foundation of communication that lets you speak to your dog in a way they can understand.

When I was a kid my dream superpower was the ability to speak to animals. It wasn't until I grew up that I realized it was actually possible, in fact you can communicate with all kinds of animals from stingrays to dogs, using the same simple set of principles. It's now my mission to pass this superpower on to dog owners, giving them the tools they need to communicate with their dogs using motivational, science-based methods.

"... I can happily say that we have seen incredible improvement in our dog. He no longer lunges and barks at dogs and cars. Instead, he sits and waits for his treat (hot dog) until they pass. He responds remarkably well to "leave it" after using the training she showed us. ... He is greeting guests better and better every day and we now go on relaxing, virtually pull-free walks twice a day. " - Michelle
