RDT Obedience courses are designed to strengthen the bond between dog and human while being fun and educational for both owner and dog. You will be amazed at how well your dog can be trained! Your dog will learn basic obedience without needing a pocket full of treats or clickers. You will learn about natural dog leadership, normal dog pack structure, regular dog behaviors, effective methods of dog communication, proper use of dog training tools, and how it all relates to obedience training. Basic Obedience commands taught will vary depending on the number of lessons but all include these at a minimum the dog will learn consist of Sit, Out (drop it), Heel, Down, Stay and Come. Basic Obedience Plus will additionally cover boundary control, quiet, obedience drills, and heel stationary.(A command used to make your dog come to you and sit on your left hand side. )
Basic obedience training is an excellent way to keep your dog under control and make your life easier. Dogs do not think like humans, and if they are treated like humans it can cause behavioral issues such as stress, nervousness, anxiety or even aggression. Dogs are pack animals and need to know that there is a clear cut pack hierarchy. If this social structure is not in place it will cause confusion, leading the dog to believe that there is no social structure. If this is the case, the dog will try to implement a pack structure, and place itself at the top. This behavior will cause problems for the entire family and any guests that come over.
For basic obedience I do not use treats or clickers. Major pet store chains rely on the use of treats in order to increase their food sales revenue. Think about it, does it make more sense for a major pet food distributor to sell you a $4 training collar once, and teach you to use it properly, or does it make more sense to teach you to bribe your dog for food treats at $10 - $20 a bag for the rest of the dogs life? Are the major pet food retailers really trying to benefit you and your dog or simply increase their own revenue? I will accomplish a better response with the $4 training collar than they will with $100s in treats. This will save you money and time in the long run and keep you from having to rely on food bribery.
Imagine, if you tried to go to high school when you were 5 instead of elementary, things would be more difficult and confusing. You would probably get frustrated and drop out before ever graduating, making you a much less productive member of society. The same is true of dogs as well. You cannot start advanced training with your dog without first learning the fundamentals. Basic Obedience training is the first step towards more advance training. Learning to walk before you run is as much a reality for you as your dogs. After graduating basic obedience you are eligible to enroll in any of the advanced training I offer, but just like elementary, everything starts with the basics first.
