“Dove Cresswells Dog Training Online” is truly for the lazy reader. Why? Because of it’s simple, easy-to-understand audio/video format. If simplicity is what you are looking for, this may be for you.
Let’s be honest. Most of us do not have a problem dog. We just have an untrained one.
Unless you are training the next Lassie or Rin Tin Rin, you just want an obedient, well behaved canine companion, right?
The last thing you want to do is muddle through hundreds of pages of boring text just to find the answers you are looking for.
This isn’t rocket science. Let’s not complicate an uncomplicated issue. Yes, you will find more variety in greater detail in those massive dog training manuals, but who cares? Chances are you will never come across that situation.
Nearly every common problem you may have with your dog is covered in the videos. But just in case it isn’t, Dove offers a personal one on one email consultation with your purchase.
Dove’s claim to fame is being a prominent Hollywood dog trainer for films, TV, and commercials. While that may sound impressive, it is the final results that count and Dove Cresswells Dog Training Online is pretty impressive.
The training is proven and easy and condensed into these 7 complete lessons.
- Puppy House Training / Potty Training
- Dog Obedience Training
- Crate Training
- Walking Politely on a Leash: The Informal Heel
- Good Puppy & Dog Manners
- Stop Your Dog Growling
- Special Dog Tricks
The best part is it’s simplicity. The lessons are compiled into audio and video format, so that you can hear her voice and see exactly how she does it.
She uses a reliable and effective training method to train dogs to perform in TV commercials and movies, which is a little different than most other dog training books or videos.
There is even a free sample lesson on the website. After watching the lesson, you can easily decide if this is what you need.
Here are some of the advantages to following her methods:
- It’s all presented in plain English.
- Since the tone of voice you use when training your puppy is so important, you will HEAR exactly what to say and how to say it.
- Each lesson is designed for everyone – from no previous dog training experience, to lots of dog and puppy training experience.
- You’ll save hours of time NOT attending night school dog obedience classes with your pet. SPECIAL NOTE: Those lessons are often too long. Ideally, lessons should be short (15-25 minutes MAX).
- Both you and your dog will look forward to these puppy training and dog training lessons because they are built around rewards, treats, and FUN!
She also adds a nice collection of bonuses, including a free email consultation. Hey, if nothing else, you can brag to your friends how you received an email from a professional Hollywood dog trainer. That should impress them.
Perhaps Dove Cresswells Dog Training Online doesn’t go deep into the gritty (boring) details that some of the others do, but it all depends on what you are looking for.
What I didn’t like. The videos are presented in a Flash format, available only online. You can’t download them or burn them to a DVD. A trivial matter perhaps, but annoying just the same.
If you are looking to become a paid professional dog trainer, then maybe you should try one of the other programs, but if you are a dog owner who simply wants a loyal, obedient companion, then Dove Cresswells Dog Training Online is for you. You’ll get everything you need to know about puppy and dog training in 7 quick, no-nonsense, get-to-the-point-fast lessons.
We give it 4 out of 5 stars.
