Here are some of our most popular questions we get and answers!
How long will I have to practice with my dog every day?
When you practice stuff with your dog, training sessions should be short and sweet, like 1-3 minutes a few times throughout your day. All of the training games you’ll learn inside this program can be played anytime throughout the day and all even during the current daily routines you have with your dog such as meal times, when going out the door for walks, and when sitting watching tv or eating dinner.
How fast does it work?
Students can start to see results on the very first day they start training. Students that put in time and effort consistently and follow along with the program’s step-by-step approach will see the quickest results.
What training methods are used?
All training is done using a positive and gentle approach. We use treats, petting and praise to let our dogs know they did a great job. We do not use nor condone the use of aversive training techniques.
What if I buy the Crate Training program now and need help later?
No worries! You can book a virtual lesson with one of our certified professional trainers and they can work through any crate training troubles you may be experiencing.
Do I need equipment?
In the beginning, you will need a regular 4’ or 6’ leash that feels comfortable in your hands, low, medium and high-value training treats, and ideally something to hold treats like a training pouch. You will also need a crate, a puppy pen and a snuggle puppy. Additional supplies will be suggested throughout the course. Not all supplies will be the right fit for all puppies.
Is my dog too young/old for this to work? Does this work for older dogs too or just puppies?
No dog is too young or too old to start this program. Most puppies start training the day they are brought home. However, the program is ideal for puppies 6 months and under.
Is it guaranteed?
Absolutely! I can guarantee that if you follow this program and play the training games for homework, you will see results really quickly.
Is it better to wait until I have my puppy before buying the course?
Many of our students purchase the course before their puppy’s arrival so they can better prepare mentally and within their home and family. You want to make sure you’re being proactive instead of reactive when your puppy arrives. Students that have purchased the course ahead of time have told us they felt better prepared for their puppy’s arrival and were more confident in the skills they had learned and could start using right away, even on the first day their puppy came home.
Is there an expiration date or limited amount of time to watch the videos?
There isn't an expiration date on the program.This means you can watch and re-watch the videos as many times as you'd like for as long as you'd like!
