There are no special skills or even experience you need to have to learn how to train your dog. What you do need is the desire to learn, willingness to try, and discipline to continue.
The problem is simply that you don't know how to start, or how to do what YOU need to do for the dog.
One book says one thing, Google blogs say another, and YouTube videos leave you completely lost and frustrated with no clue what you should or should not be doing.
"I feel like there is so much more we can be doing but I just don't know where to go from here."
"I know my dog needs more, I just don't know what more they need"
"My dog acts like he can't hear me or forgot what come means when he sees a squirrel, another dog, or a ball."
"My dog walks great on a leash except for when there is a squirrel, person, cat, or other dog in sight."
Hey, they like squirrels, it is what it is.
This 100% online program mixes presentation, video, live coaching, group coaching support, plus much more.
You will learn everything you need to know about living with, raising, and training your dog yourself.
You will learn how to stop and prevent problem behaviors like jumping, barking, counter surfing, and pulling on leash.
You will become the best dog owner possible to help your dog be their best.
You will ...
If your dog suffers from anxiety, fear, and nervousness, there is a LOT you can do yourself at home to HELP them!
Before looking at medication and other invasive solutions, you can experience significant change in your dog's behavior from simply changing your interactions with them, and structuring their daily life in a way that provides them the opportunity to actually grow and become more confident.
Many people want to help their dogs so badly they miss the solutions that will help the dog the most. From "thundershirts", youtube channels with music, and even CBD oils and other drugs, loving and well intentioned dog owners often only address the symptoms of their dogs true challenges.
The Canine Blueprint helps dog owners start at the root of all their dogs fears and anxiety by teaching them, many times for the first time, how their dog thinks and sees the world.
Once a dog owner gets a better understanding of their dog, the potential for progress is quite big!
Just like a child who behaves better when with a certain adult but then totally different with another, dogs are the same way. They will only behave to the level of understanding the human they are with has.
If you have gotten to the point where sending them off to a stranger is an option, then I have GREAT news for you. The problem is you don't know how to do it yourself, and that problem has a solution.
You didn't pay for a good time, you signed up and drove to that class every week hoping to learn things that can help you and your dog. I spent more time and money than I want to even think about in my journey to learn how to train dogs effectively.
Believe me when I tell you I completely understand how you felt leaving that group class and it seems as though you're making zero progress.
You're trying, but your dog still isn't understanding what you want and doing their own thing when you need them to listen.
Sure, there are moments in class where they might sit or down on command, while you have a big handful of treats in front of them.
The problem is when you get home and go out for a walk in the neighborhood like you want to do every day. A squirrel runs by, or a neighbors dog is barking at the fence.
That group class isn't helping much is it?
With The Canine Blueprint there is no driving to a class. There is no "my dog behaves one way here and another way there". You will be taught how to begin all your dog's training at home, and how to build the relationship needed to extend that training out into the REAL world, without food.
That's right, WITHOUT food.
Long term, your dog should enjoy YOU and your relationship above treats being dangled in front of them like a bribe.
This is about having the life with your dog you always wanted, yet didn't know how to make happen.
Fred was one of my clients who had recently gotten a puppy. No big deal right? It's just a cute little puppy. Like most people, he had no idea what he was in for.
Youtube and Facebook just left him feeling confused and at a loss for what he needed to do to get things on track.
Things weren't going well. Then we started working together and immediately EVERYTHING changed for Fred, his puppy, and his entire family! Below is a comment he posted on FB updating me on the prgress.

Most programs focus on the dog. This unique and powerful program instructs dog OWNERS. Not only are the long term results better, but the experience is extraordinary.
Forget sending your dog away with a stranger, or fighting the distractions of a noisy group class. This program is 100% online with your laptop and cellphone being all you need.
Former students and their dogs demonstrate exactly what a program focused on owner education and training provides. A well behaved dog and a relationship unlike any other.
Do parents send their kids away to be raised? No, they do what it takes to learn how to be effective parents. Why is it any different with your dog? Most people do not need to send their dog away with a stranger for training.
Save more than just time and money. You can now feel confident and guilt free as you are taught science based principles that are appropriate for your dog and you, and that actually work.
The purpose of the program is to teach you everything you need to know to be able to communicate with your dog, understand what they are trying to tell you, and then help them understand what you want them to do. You get the tools to make the best relationship possible with your dog AND the personal coaching to make sure you are using those tools correctly
and MUCH more...
With 1 to 1 coaching you get personal and private time with somebody who not only knows what you're going through, but has spent years helping dog owners around the world become their dog's only trainer.
Raising and training a dog is like building a house on your own. You aren't a carpenter, but you get the house up and its functional. Then you start having cracks in the wall. You just want to fix the cracks but the reality is they are there because the foundation you built the house on is crooked, and the frames the walls are built on aren't level. You are having the issues you're having because your foundation with your dog needs to be rebuilt. This program teaches you ALL of that, and much more.
Successfully implementing what you learn in the program doesn't take any additional time than you are already spending with your dog. You learn how to take that time and simply adjust it so that you and the dog get more out of it. Two to three sessions of three to five minutes each is all you need to see amazing results!
Even better! The program is for you, not your dogs. One price regardless of whether you have 2 or 20 dogs! You will get much more from the coaching when you have several dogs who present various challenges to work through, so my all means the more the merrier!
Find a time that works when you can dedicate 100% of your attention to our call. Be sure to plan accordingly and if there are any other adults involved in raising the dog they should be able to attend our call as well.
When it's time for our call we will discuss steps you can take immediately to improve your relationship and training with your dog. From there we will see if you are a good fit for more in depth coaching.
