Prerequisite: Multiple Dog Households, Part 1 with Positive Motivation Dog Training (in-person or onlne class).

A DVD of all the film clips is available for an additional $20.00 + S&H
CEU’s available from IAABC for this course: 15 CEU’s
CPDT: info to come on CEU’s.
Now that you have worked your dog’s attention alone, in a group and in hot spots, worked on your stays and recalls, drop on recall, door etiquette, etc. from Part One, part two will take you to the next level of managing your pack.
Would you like to pet one dog at a time without being overrun (or causing a tiff)?
Would you like to be able to have guests come over without being mauled?
Would you like to be able to separate a few dogs – even from a distance?
Would you like to be able to walk a few dogs at the same time without dislocating your shoulders?
If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, then Part Two of Managing the Multiple Dog Household is for you!
Can’t figure out how this would work? Below is a Page Map
This is the way it will work:
- There are a total of 12 lessons.
- Each lesson will include text and video clip(s).
- You can go at your own pace. The lessons are designed to be taken over 30 days, and you will have an extra 10 days to go back to the blog and re-read and re-watch the video clips – for a total of 40 days from date of registration.
- At any time you will be able to post questions, problems or comments to the blog. I will be monitoring the blog and will answer all questions as soon as possible.
- Because dog training is such a visual thing, I encourage you to video tape yourselves and your dogs if you are having a problem, post it to Youtube.com and then send the link to the blog so we can all look at it and discuss it.
- You may purchase the DVD compilation via Paypal for $20.00 + S&H at any time.
Legalese: I would ask that you all not share your notes with anyone outside of your own household, nor copy the DVD to pass around to your friends. All of my information, whether in film or in writing is copyrighted and may not be used without written permission.
What students are saying about Managing the Multiple Dog Household ONLINE CLASS, Part Two:
Thanks for another great class! The dogs and I have learned a lot. I live in an area without a lot of training choices and being able to take these kind of specialty courses online is wonderful. I especially appreciate the opportunity to get feedback on videos of our training when we hit a rough patch. ~ Barb
Thanks, Pam! The course was greatboth parts. And I love that we have all of these lessons on DVD so we can keep working on them. (We have a lot of work we can be doing! but at the same time, we’ve made very good progress.) …
Wow SUCH a good idea. Thanks for sharing. We have definitely been having issues with tug and fetch. Both my dogs love to play these games with us, but aren’t good about taking turns. I’ve been wondering how I could teach them to play with us together…..(next day)…Just checking in to say that I really REALLY like this tug exercise. I can’t believe I can play with both dogs at once, but it really works! ~ Bianca
I’m back for Part 2 of the course, having learned a lot from Part 1. I practice the Part 1 exercises while walking my dogs, and it’s really added a whole lot of fun to our day! (I’d never before been able to make two dogs stay while sending the third to go get a thrown treat!) …
I can’t believe how well this back up exercise worked!! I have to admit, I was skeptical. I had visions of my dog just curling around my hand and acting silly in an attempt to get the treat. But it worked beautifully, first time, every time, with all 3 of my dogs! What a great technique! …
This is partly why I find your courses so interesting and enjoyable. While other trainers insist on doing everything a particular way, with a view to being 100% consistent in all areas of our lives, you have a very laid-back approach to training.
I’ve always believed that dogs could learn to do one thing in two (or more) different ways (eg. sometimes running a two-on-two-off contact and sometimes doing a running contact in agility, depending on what the handler tells them), but hearing about your experience is very reassuring! ~ Sharon
