Sit Stay Fetch Review - Dog Training Made Easy

Feb 29, 2008
It is well established that a dog is a pack animal that likes to live in a group. It not only enjoys the advantages that a pack has over an individual but it also needs to live in a group to express its social instincts. When a dog or puppy comes into your home it is essentially joining a pack where you or the leader of the family is the pack leader. The dog looks for guidance on how to act from the pack leader. It is the responsibility of the pack leader to teach the dog how to behave and to enforce these rules once they have been taught. This is where obedience training comes into the equation. Obedience training is not cruel or a subversion of a dogs true instincts. A dog wants to conform and wants to learn what you teach it.

So what do you want to teach it? Well, many people don't commit to obedience training and teach their dogs a few things but don't really follow through with the training or then vacillate on enforcing the rules. However you need to establish a few rules. Here are the essential skills you need to teach your dog in order to control it and for your pet to live comfortably in a human world.

It must be able to socialize with humans, dogs and other animals (principally your family and other pets like cats) in it's home and outside of the home.

It must be trusting of people and be comfortable being touched by humans.

It must be able to control its aggressive tendencies.

It must accept restraint. For instance, it should know how to walk on a lead in a calm manner without getting distracted by things around it.

It should be able to respond to your calls, especially coming when you call it.

It should poop in an area that is determined by the pack leader.

It should be able to be alone for a length of time every now and then.

By teaching your dog these kind of skills you will help it to fit into the wider community and be a loved and popular member of your family.

The sit stay fetch obedience training course will help you to teach these skills to your dog. In fact it will do a lot more besides this but it focuses on these core skills that adequately socialize your dog. You can then build on the core skills using the course to include more advanced obedience training.

The main part of the sit stay fetch package is the obedience training course. This is more than just a series of commands to teach your dog. It aims to give you an insight into how the dog thinks. This is useful because you can then start to adapt techniques and training methods because you know how the dog will react and respond to best. It also covers many of the bad behavioral habits that dogs have. It explains why they do these things and how to fix the bad behavior.

The next section of the book is teaching the obedience commands. I think this is done well. For each command it is broken down into steps. Each step has a photograph and text that explains what you must do. For each command there are 4 or 5 photos and text that effectively communicate what to do. After looking at a command and trying it a few times you will have soon memorized it and be teaching your dog. The commands feature all the essential commands that you need and a few more advanced commands. There are a few extra e-books that come with the total package. They cover topics like grooming your dog and training it for security work. An additional book that is really useful is on how to become a pack leader. For me this is an important lesson to learn as it will underpin all the training that you do with your dog in the future.

The sit stay fetch course book is also on audio files that you can load into your ipod or convert to cd. You can listen to them wherever you want. They are really useful when teaching your dog a particular command becuase you can listen to them as you teach your pet.

The complete package can be downloaded in around thirty minutes so that you can be training your pet in next to no time.
