The first place I go is to Team Dog for information and education
I watched Mike's YouTube video on dog crating and followed Mike's simple advice. Every time you put your dog in the crate, you give it a treat. My two Belgian malinois fly into the crate every time. Simply shut the crate, and give a treat. Pretty damn simple to me. Working on shaping now with treats and clicker; the dogs are responding well and I am gaining confidence daily in Mike's training program.
This is a great online training program. You can go at your own pace and your own place!! Mike teaches the basics, but also helps troubleshoot.
The videos are great and you can watch a lesson many times if you need to. There are also special classes, like the canine first aide course, that are
excellent to take as well. The forums are there for you to ask questions and see what problems other people may have with their dog. It is a great
resource to help you when you want to learn how to better train and understand your pup. I have been a member of the Team dog online training
since it started and we are still learning new things. If you have one thing in your toolbox to help you with your dog, it should be this online training!!
I’ve watched every video so far and can not wait to get started. We have 2 pups coming 8/7, Iam nervous but feel positive with this guidance.
