Chet Womach’s “The Dog Training Secret”

This is a link to Chet Womach’s “Hands Off Dog Training Formula”. His training techniques give you the *exact* step-by-step formula anyone can use to overcome their dog or puppy’s behavior problems using positive training techniques…no yelling, hitting, shocking or jerking on leashes. Chet gives tons of information in his training system, but he also keeps giving free valuable bonuses, even after you’ve paid for and are having success with his system!

I’ve used Chet’s training with my own puppies and I recommend him very highly! His system is easy to use; with videos, written information and recorded audios about topics that are of interest to all puppy owners.” 


Karen Pryor Clicker Training

Karen Pryor is a pioneer in the development of force-free training methods, and one of the leading proponents of operant conditioning. Karen continues to have an enormous influence in the animal training field, and is much admired for her influential body of work and generous spirit.
Karen Pryor’s vision was for an institution that harnessed the knowledge and practices of outstanding trainers she knew and respected. As a result, Karen Pryor Academy’s curriculum reflects a unique collaboration between the academy and many accomplished trainers who share a common philosophy, and have applied their skills and gained their experience in a variety of contexts. Karen Pryor Academy’s advisors actively contribute to the academy’s development. Many are also members of the academy’s faculty.

Karen’s training methods have been a great influence in training my own puppies…her website has a wealth of wonderful on-line classes, books, videos and information for everyone who needs some help training their puppy!”
