Basic obedience is essential

Sit, down, stay and here are some important basic obedience exercises. Everyone who has a dog knows them and will always teach some of them. However, there is often a difference in the level and the way these exercises are taught.

A common mistake we have been seeing for years is that the dog is expected to understand the exercise too quickly. The dog is influenced with the voice or even corrected for something he does not know yet. The result is irritation for the owner and stressful for the dog....

We do this differently. You can't expect a puppy or a dog that learns an exercise to understand it immediately, let alone that it listens to the command. We therefore do not use commands in the beginning.

In the more than 40 years of experience we have, we have developed a system in which every dog can be trained in an exclusively positive way.

The dog learns from his own behavior. By reinforcing this behavior in a positive way, the exercises are learned very quickly and you get fast results.

Obedience is a dog that listens to you

A dog who learns a new exercise does not know what is expected of him. You can then force the dog to do something, but this will work counterproductive. The dog will become insecure and will not dare to make mistakes.

The secret behind our system is that we let the dog learn from his own behavior. We try to provoke this behavior in a positive way and then reward it. We do this in small steps, without the dog realizing exactly what he is doing or should do.

By combining the elicitation of the desired behavior and the positive reinforcement with our unique food training system, we achieve our goal very quickly with dogs of all ages. In just one month, this system will teach your dog the most important obedience exercises that you will continue to use throughout the dog's life.

Do you still have questions or doubts? Here you can read the most frequently asked questions:

Is the course in English?

Yes, our native language is Dutch, but all the videos are in English. We have also subtitled the videos in both Dutch and English.

I already have an older dog, can I still take the course?

Yes! Our system works for dogs of all ages. In our videos you will often see puppies, but we use our system to train older dogs as well. For example, during our last seminar we trained an 11 year old dog using our system.

I have very little time...

Training is only a small part of the day. Often we train only two times 10 to 20 minutes a day. This can be done at the times that suit you best, so our system does not require a lot of time.

What does the structure of the course look like?

All of our courses consist of videos. These are recorded by Dick, and he explains everything step by step. The videos, and accompanying PowerPoints, immediately give you a good idea and clear explanation of the exercise shown.

What do I need when I start the course?

Motivation and your dog(s). The items we use in the training sessions are not special items. We clearly explain what you can use, and what you can use as an alternative. You don't need to get any special training items.

How can I watch the course videos?

On any device that has an internet connection and is capable to browse the internet. You can use your computer, laptop, phone or tablet. You can watch the course wherever you want.

How long will the videos be available and how many times can you watch them?

If you have purchased the course then you have and will always have access to it. In our courses we use an extensively tested dripping system. With this system you get all the information you need at that moment. Every day you will receive a new training that you can immediately apply.

This prevents you from being overwhelmed with too much information at once. This prevents you from skipping small, but very important steps in our system. You only get the information that you need at that moment and can immediately apply. Once you have watched all the videos, you have access to them and can watch them as many times as you want.

This is a system that we have tested extensively with our students and which gave the best and fastest results.
