I chose Sled Dog School the book… because I’ve been loving middle school novels, and especially because Northern Dogs / Siberian Huskies / Sled Dogs intrigue me. My southern Arizona friend Carla introduced me to those fabulous dogs; she learned about and became smitten with then when she lived and worked in Alaska, later on owned several of her own northern dogs, and even later than that, ran a northern dog rescue and adoption agency. Tamara, a Facebook friend I first met on Best Friends Animal Society’s now defunct forums, lives in Yukon Territory and until recently had teams of huskies; I could not get enough of the frequent photographs and occasional videos of her teams in harness running across the snow!
A responsible owner has control over their dog, because the dog respects them and sees them as their leader. This isn’t a difficult skill for dogs to comprehend, as they do this naturally in the wild. Dog packs have a very clearly organized pack structure where each member knows their place in the pack. If you throw a group of dogs together, you can see this pack order naturally develop.
So if the dog in question is sitting quietly next to his owner on the far side of a field, that would be a far less powerful distraction than the dog which is racing around chasing a frisby twenty yards away.
“This was the best experience. Excellent instructors, well-rounded curriculum, science-based learning. CATCH gave me education on ALL aspects of training and usage of many behavior modification options.”
To help your dog know when barking is acceptable, you simply need to teach him that he may bark until he is told to stop. “Stop barking” should be considered as a command for obedience rather than a telling off.
Local community centers, dog daycare operations and some pet stores offer group classes that may range from $50 to $125 for four to eight weeks of one-hour sessions. Classes for puppies might cost less than those for adult dogs.
After enjoying a successful career in education, the decision to become a professional dog trainer was easy. “Training dogs is all about training their owners,” says Brandon. “My experience with teaching and coaching really works for me as a business owner and professional dog trainer.”
“What I really liked about Tarheel is that they exposed the students to all kinds of fields relating to dog training. I went in wanting to learn about pet obedience and ended up loving the working dog training! I appreciate Tarheel for providing students the opportunity to work with client and working dogs right from the beginning, allowing us to gain the valuable firsthand experience. The course description mentions that students will have practical experience on at least 20 dogs. I and my fellow classmates quickly surpassed that number and we just stopped counting.”

Presently we are not aware of any degrees offered in “dog training” at any major universities across the country. Undoubtedly, a formal education in behavioral psychology/ethology/veterinary sciences is very useful for an individual interested in professional training.

The training knowledge is presented both in lecture format, so you can see the theory behind the technique, and in practical application where then you can take that knowledge to the field and apply the techniques. Training sessions are debriefed, and adjustments for the next session are discussed. You need to see what works in a variety of contexts with a variety of dogs. Whether pet training or working dogs, the blending of theory and application is something we stress in the Tarheel Canine Training System. Other schools show you a very narrow a technique. We allow you to explore among a variety of techniques within a proven general system of training, proven in competition and on the street and in the homes of thousands of pet owners. There is no cookie cutter approach, or “just one way” in our training. It has been described as eclectic, coherent, and systematic, with a reason behind each technique.
Reward good behavior. Always praise good behavior with lots of gentle love and cuddles. Use rewards effectively to reinforce good behavior. For example, if your dog successfully responds to your request to drop a toy, say, “yes!,” or “good boy!” Verbal rewards work well when you’re playing and may have your hands full of toys.
Labradors are intelligent, but a young puppy can quickly become confused. Avoid overwhelming the pup by teaching a few, really important commands first and once he’s mastered these you can work on more advanced tricks. The priorities for your pup to learn as ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘look’, and ‘come’. These five commands will give you control in most situations.
Luckily for Matt, he comes from a family of sled dog racers. Using this experience, he decides he will teach his classmates the fine art of mushing huskies and malamutes. One especially kind boy called Tubbs who joins up with Matt is practically his polar opposite. Even so, they learn the importance of teamwork; of working with huskies and malamutes; of figuring out solutions to problems and how their efforts apply in mathematics.
RD was so great to work with! We were having some issues with our 5 yr. old vizsla Dita with eating compulsions as well as setting the right boundaries and expectations for everyday living. RD was super helpful and gave us the tools to amend and modify all the behaviors- including our own!!
Crate training is the process by which you teach your dog to see their crate as their own special place. A place where they can go to get away from things, to relax and where they feel safe and secure. Accomplish this and the crate becomes a huge benefit to both you and your dog.
