Basic Dog Obedience DVD by Ed Frawley



This DVD is 4 hours long. The purpose of this Leerburg training DVD is to teach you the art of dog training.

Our goal is to show you that dog training is not rocket science. It is 100% common sense. There are no secrets. Dog training is an art that you can learn if you are willing to set your mind to it.

The best dog trainers will know how to build a bond based on two-way respect between the dog and the handler. These trainers know how to motivate a dog to want to learn. They understand how and when to apply distractions during training so they can show the dog that it needs to mind under all circumstances.

This DVD will show you how to approach dog training. You need to break tasks into small training steps, also called building blocks. Once the dogs learned each of these small blcoks, we put them together again so the dog can easily perform these exercises.

In 1982, I released obedience training on a VHS tape. Over the years, I have redone this video approximately 6 to 7 times. I have now added information and have refined the program--it is one of the best dog training DVDs in the market. This was released in August 2006.

Every dog trainer should understand the philosophy of the person they are taking advice from. I advise you to read my philosophy on dog training.

"Dogs know what you know and they also know what you don't know." My training program and this sit can be the first step in the journey of showing your dog what you know and making sure he doesn't underestimate your knowledge.

This DVD is organized into chapters like a book. The menu for our DVD allows you to watch the chapter you want when you want.

The information is designed to be watched again and again. Each time you watch this again, you'll learn something you missed previously. There's more information here than in any local 10 week obedience class.

Topics Covered in DVD

While every new dog trainer needs to learn how to correct his dog, every great dog trainer needs to learn how to properly “praise” his dog. Praising a dog is not something that comes naturally to a lot of people, especially men. It is actually an important learned exercise for people.

If you watch a very good dog trainer, he praises his dog at a very personal level. In a training program, “praise” is used to bond with a dog; it is used to remove the stress of corrections and it’s used to build drive.

Dog training should be fun for both you and your dog. This is accomplished by learning to properly “praise." After watching our section on praising, you will not only understand correct praise, you will see what happens when you don’t praise enough, or just as importantly what happens when you praise too much, (we call this “praise to the level of distraction”).
