The puppy is new and oh so cute.
You cuddle with it every day and love to chase it around the yard or play tug of war with the stuffed animal that, in a year will probably be missing most of its limbs.
However, all is not fun and games in the house with the new puppy. Now comes the hard part, house training the dog.
As the new puppy does one of two things to relieve him/herself in the middle of your new white carpet you find yourself wondering why it is so difficult for the dog to understand that you do not go in the house. You think to yourself why would anyone, animals included, go to the bathroom where they live? Would they not want it as far away as possible? You think your puppy must just be thickheaded, anyone with a dog has looked at their animal at this stage and said "you stupid dog". However, then you remember that for a couple years after you were born you not only went to the bathroom where you live but actually in your pants and you feel slightly bad for being so frustrated with your dogis seeming lack of intelligence.
House training a dog is without a doubt a frustrating process. You wish you could just throw them outside and they would figure it out themselves. Unfortunately it is not this easy; it requires a bit more patience and perseverance. So you do a couple things as you look at the seemingly hopeless situation that has the potential to turn very expensive if you are again forced to replace your carpet. First of all you remember that you knew house training a dog was not easy or fun, second you remember that you are the idiot that bought new carpet two months before you decided to get a dog. Now you suck it up and you go to the book store to get the newest book on house training a dog and hope that it has some enlightening information that will save you both time and money-discounting the $30 you just spent on the book of course.
Is Brain Training for Dogs worth it?
Yes, it is!
One shouldn’t judge a dog by its size or age. Each dog comes with a set of behavioral issues and limitations. These things make managing your canine companion troublesome when you bring them home. More so if you area first-time pet owner.
Luckily, BrainTraining for Dogs can set you on the right track. It teaches you how to use force-free dog training to get your small friend to behave.
Here is everything you need to know about it:
The Basics: What Is BrainTraining for Dogs?
After a decade of dog training, Adrienne Farricelli penned and recorded all the lessons she had learned. Her professional career as a CPDT-KA certified dog trainer taught her to change bad behaviors through mental stimulation and psychological training instead of punishment.
She incorporates this strategy to create Brain Training for Dogs. It is a simple and effective program for pet parents who dream of owning smart, well-behaved pets. All this is condensed into7 modules that take your dog on a transformative journey.
The result of this is an intelligent, obedient, potty-trained dog that is friendly too.
Brain Training forDogs Review: What to Expect?
Like every dog training module out there, this program comes with a set of pros and cons. What sets it apart from others is its focus on positive reinforcement. Unlike traditional techniques, you instill trust and love in your dog instead of fear.
Plus, the behavioral changes are more natural as you progress from the elementary level to advanced levels. We like this aspect because it does not feel forceful or intimidating. Once your dog gets used to these lessons, they start enjoying it.
Before you know it, dog training becomes a fun way to spend quality time with your pup.
Other benefits include:
· Easy to follow instructions
· Engaging video tutorials and vide cues
· Interactive forum for queries and problems
You also get a money back guarantee which is a sweet deal for pet parents on a budget.
A quick comparative analysis with other pet parents shows that few people might find problems with the program. The first being that there is a great deal of reading involved. It isa hassle for busy dog owners.
Additionally, dogs respond to training sessions differently. It would help if you prepared yourself for a few hiccups along the way. The key is to stay patient and pay attention to your dog’s verbal and non-verbal cues. If your puppy is not feeling up to the task, take a break. There is no point in overworking them when they feel agitated.
In our experience, treating brain training for dogs as an activity instead of a mandatory chore worked like a charm. We opted for videos and skim-reading to save time. There was also repetition and adaptation involved to make things work.
So don’t hesitate to put your spin on the program to overcome hurdles.
The Verdict: Is Brain Training for Dogs WorthIt?
Overall, it is a comprehensive dog training program that replaces the traditional treat vs. punishment strategy with positive reinforcement. We also love how it addresses common behavioral issues in dogs with actionable solutions. Plus, with patience and effort, you get the hang of this program reasonably quickly.
You also get all this at a reasonable price. That means you don’t risk anything and have the potential to win everything by taking the plunge.
Therefore, we give Brain Training for Dogs a two thumbs up, and it’s a woof (yes) from Scruffy too!
