If you had the idea this was the perfect time to bring a new puppy or dog into your life, you are certainly not alone. With extra hours on your hands and limited time away from home, this actually is an ideal environment for acclimating a pet into their new home. But that’s the thing—yours is their home now, their forever home. Even someone with the best intentions can find themselves overwhelmed by a dog that they can’t seem to control. Sadly, behavior problems are the top reason most people give up a pet, and 96% of dogs relinquished for those behavior problems have never been trained. That doesn’t have to be your story, though, thanks to this Complete Guide to Puppy & Dog Training Bundle.

Over 12 hours of content, Sharon Bolt, a top dog behavior expert, author, and celebrity-pet trainer, guides you through the best ways to help your dog live their (and your) best life. The 184 lessons focus more on behavioral issues than tricks and commands because that’s the true key to happiness with a dog. 

You’ll learn kind and gentle methods of training using positive reinforcement and desensitizing techniques to earn your pup Top Dog status. With the use of these courses, you’ll have the knowledge, methods, and confidence you need to train your pup in areas like crying, howling, barking, anxiety separation, house training, biting/nipping, chewing, and item stealing.

There’s also a deep dive into walks, on-leash calmness, off-leash recall, and how to get your dog to understand when it’s OK to bark versus when you’d like them to stop. And for those dogs who have a little more trouble due to aggression and reactivity issues, you’ll get a course dedicated to sussing out exactly what Rover is feeling and how to best handle different situations and environments.

Once you’ve mastered the training aspects of life with a pup, you may want to delve into the health and wellness side of things. Here you’ll find plenty of content on natural remedies for health and training that will save you big bucks at the vet, plus all the ins and outs of feeding your dog a raw diet.

And when you discover how much you love working closely with your dog—because, duh—you may be inspired to go pro. Who wouldn’t want to spend their days playing with puppies and earning money while doing so? Pay close attention to the courses on how to become a professional dog trainer and run a training business, then draft your resignation letter to your boss and save it for later.

The Complete Guide to Puppy & Dog Training Bundle is on sale now for $29.99, a savings of 97% and an investment that Fido would absolutely give two paws up.
