Concept training is revolutionary in the dog training world! Fast, effective and fun for you both! Learning to teach your dog foundation behaviors by concepts rather than method empowers you to become the best trainer you can be for your service dog in training! Learn to train like a professional dog trainer!
Think of a concept as a template. They provide the framework and can be applied to many different behaviors. Once you understand the template, you can make small adjustments that make a big difference! Concepts for training your service dog are separated out and offered individually as self-paced packages. Your dog learns the needed behaviors as you learn to teach him the concepts. This gives you the opportunity to learn how to use concepts to apply them to different behaviors.
Pay-As-You-Go: When you sign up, you will have immediate access to all the modules contained in each package. These packages allow you to focus on learning and applying one concept at a time, rather than being overwhelmed with many at once. You can purchase them as you need them.
There may be some overlap in the behaviors being taught since there are many ways to teach a single behavior. One concept will work for one dog and others for other dogs. Teaching your dog several ways to learn each behavior will also help him better understand each behavior.
Dogs must be at least 4 months of age to start learning a package. If he is under 4 months, check out our Service Puppy program.
How long each package will take to complete will depend on the behaviors you choose, how often you train, how fast you and your dog learn to apply each concept, and what your dog already knows.
