The Sanity Savers ebook allows you to  stop (mis)behaviour in it's tracks, without feeling bad or guilty, and instead, you can get on with enjoying your dog.
This e book looks at 3 training tools and how to apply them, using 3 common unwanted behaviours as examples. However, these tools work for any kind of (mis)behaviour, not just those in the examples.

The Nuts & Bolts of Teaching Dogs Course link
Is your dog misbehaving or not listening to you?
Do you want to train your dog and have them LOVE it? Do you want your dog to respond joyfully to you even around exciting things and in busy places? Are you looking for the keys to unlocking your dog’s best self: the happy, responsive pet you know is lurking within – if only you could reach him?

To change your dog’s behaviour from ‘independent’, ‘stubborn’ or ‘disconnected’ you need to build a collaborative relationship with him. You also need to be able to communicate what you’d like him to do AND motivate him to go along with your ideas.  

Here's What Others Have Said...

 "I had just taken on a complicated rescue dog so was looking for a course that we could work through in our own time. I also couldn't commit to travelling to town to participate in a regular class so when The Nuts 'n' Bolts  of Teaching Dogs online course was recommended to me, I didn't hesitate to enrol. 

I was hoping to go back to basics with my new rescue dog as he hadn't had the best environment during his first couple of years and this is exactly what we needed - to understand how dogs learn and make sure I was helping my new mate out. 

By going through the Nuts and Bolts course I have released that almost everything is teachable and rewarding the good behaviour is much easier than checking the undesirable behaviour. We have made huge progress and I have a happier much less confused dog. I would 100% recommend this course to any new or experienced dog owner."
