These Dog Training Videos Turned Buddy Into a Good Dog

By Michele Welton, Dog Trainer, Breed Selection Consultant, Author of 15 Dog Books

Dog suggesting you watch these training videos

Buddy needed training, so I suggested that his owner check out the online videos done by "Doggy Dan". You can watch them on any computer, tablet, or mobile device.

So Karen says to me, "I'm pulling my hair out, Michele, and it's all Buddy's fault! That dog is so.... well, frustrating."

Karen went on and on about how Buddy wasn't trained right as a puppy and now his quirks and behavior problems are driving her crazy.

Then she surprised me with a question.

"I love your books Michele, but I think I may need to see the training techniques in action. Have you made any dog training videos?"

Karen is right. Sometimes videos are better than reading. But my researching and writing have kept me more than busy, so I haven't made any of my own videos.

But I have found someone I'm happy to recommend.

Introducing "Doggy Dan" The Online Dog Trainer

Trainer Doggy Dan

Dan Abdelnoor (Doggy Dan), world-class trainer, author, animal welfare enthusiast, endorsed by the SPCA

I'd like to introduce Daniel Abdelnoor, known professionally as "Doggy Dan."

Dan is a world-class dog trainer based in New Zealand. His video-based dog and puppy training site, The Online Dog Trainer, is the best and fastest-growing dog training solution available.

Training methods: Dan's training methods, like mine, are based on respect and leadership – not food bribes, pain, or cruelty. And he's exceptionally good in front of the camera – as you'll soon see.

Videos: Dan's videos show you the correct techniques in action. You'll hear the proper tones of voice to use with your dog, and feel the emotions to project for your dog's benefit. Dogs are especially reactive to your body language, so it's a big plus to have all these things correctly modeled for you to copy. The videos also show how beautifully the dogs respond.

Personal Consultations: Doggy Dan supports his videos with personal consultations. You can connect with him online, ask him questions, even show him videos of your dog's problem if you want. He'll analyze your situation, prescribe a solution, and help you implement it.

Endorsements: Doggy Dan is endorsed by the New Zealand SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). They know that owners are far less likely to return their rescue dog if they follow Dan's training. And of course, I endorse him too.

Doggy Dan has Special Videos for Training Puppies

Trainer Doggy Dan shows you how to raise and train your new puppy.

Here's a picture of Dan with his new puppy, Moses – a mixed breed adopted from the SPCA shelter. They star together in a series of videos documenting how to raise and train a puppy. His popular "Project Moses" videos are ideal for showing you, step by step, what to do and what not to do with your puppy. (Don't worry. Potty training is covered.)

It's fun to see how Doggy Dan responds to all the typical issues puppies have, and how Moses responds to Dan's training techniques.

I hope you don't consider it a plot spoiler if I tell you that Moses turns into a terrific adult family dog who gets along with Dan, his wife, their young children, and their other family dogs.

Doggy Dan has lots of other puppy training videos, audio lessons, downloadable articles, and printable summaries of his guidelines and techniques.

Do you need help with correcting a specific dog behavior that either worries you or just drives you crazy?

Doggy Dan's videos have the answers you're looking for. He gets rave reviews because his techniques are easy to implement, and positive results are surprisingly rapid.

How does he do it?

First, he teaches Five Golden Rules that will transform your relationship with your dog, turning him into a calm, happy, and respectful follower who recognizes you as the leader.

Second, Dan provides a huge library of videos with step-by-step instructions for solving specific behavior problems. These videos document live consultations with clients so you can see and hear Doggy Dan in action with real cases. He also does voice-overs for you that fully explain what he's doing so you can copy what he does.

How Did Doggy Dan's Videos Work For Buddy?

Buddy recommends Doggy Dan

Buddy likes Doggy Dan! So does his owner, Karen. She wishes she had started watching these videos when Buddy was still a puppy!

Remember at the top of this article where I told you about Buddy, who was driving his owner crazy? Karen enjoyed my books, but like many people, she found it helpful to see training techniques in action.

I'm happy to report that Karen took my advice and checked out Doggy Dan's videos. Well she loved them, and it didn't take long before she had Buddy's misbehaviors completely turned around. He's doing great now, and Karen is happy. So is Buddy.

I'm a writer, but I know that sometimes videos are better than books!
