How Can You Train Your Dog with a DVD?

May 15, 2008
Could you train your dog by following the steps on a DVD? Could you really begin with a darling little puppy who knows practically nothing of how you want him to behave in your home, yet end up with a puppy who is housetrained and knows how to sit, stay, come, and all the rest? Or could you start with an older dog who doesn't know everything you want him to, and get him to be willingly doing all the basics?

The answer? Perhaps.

If you are willing to work a bit, you can do it. Dogs really love to learn new things, and you can get an excellent DVD on how to train your dog. So it's up to you: if you want to do it, you can. The DVD will show you what to do -- and it can also help keep you motivated!

You can do it this way: select at least a couple of times a day that you will do a short dog training session. It might be immediately before you feed your pet breakfast and dinner, or at any other times that suit you. Three to five times is even better than two. Dogs learn best and have more fun in short training sessions than in long ones.

So if you are up for making a plan and carrying it out, you should do just fine at training your dog via DVD.

DVD or Class?

Is it better to use a DVD or to take your dog to a class? This depends on the circumstances. How close is the nearest dog training class, and are its hours and price a good fit for you? Even more important is the approach that the trainer takes. New information has been making its way into the world of dog training over the past couple of decades, but not every trainer has yet crossed over to using the pain-free positive methods that are the most effective.

If there is a dog training class in your vicinity that uses positive methods, it's a good idea to take it if you can. This doesn't rule out using a DVD as well. There is always more to learn about dog training. Most dogs really enjoy the positive form of training, and you can deepen your bond with your dog by continuing to train.

Choosing a DVD

There's a DVD called Train Your Dog: The Positive, Gentle Method, which I recommend. It's made with top positive-method trainers Nicole Wilde and Laura Bourhenne. It covers the basics and a good bit more. It's quite economical, and very easy to follow.
