This time we have taken the time to review “The Dog Training Tutor” for our Resources On The Sportlight Section. We hope you enjoy it!
Kobie Lawson, probably best described as a dog man, moved to the US from Australia when he was 11 years old. He started his career as a kennel hand and then he became a dog trainer. He has trained hundreds of dogs and his job provided him with an excellent laboratory where he could test and refine the most effective dog training system for dogs of all ages.
He wrote “The Dog Training Tutor” out of his love for dogs but also as a way of expanding his reach and being able to help many more dog owners than the handful of people he works with face to face.
The idea for “The Dog Training Tutor” came from sheer frustration and dissatisfaction with the books, courses and material that Kobie found in the market: either they contained bad information or the information was not presented in an easy to understand manner. Some books had no pictures at all, while most had not enough visual aids to show you what to do and how to do it.
“The Dog Training Tutor” is a book written by an experienced dog trainer who takes a lot of pride in his work, who did his homework by providing effective information, plenty of visuals (check out the hand signal photos on pages 87-88, among many others) and writing in plain English that anybody can understand.
This book is a good fit for you if…
- You are a beagle owner who wants to find out how to stop their dog’s behavior problems for good. (No more annoying barking, aggression, biting, chewing, digging, nipping, whining, jumping, separation anxiety, stealing food from the table or garbage cans).
- You are ready to take action and get this sorted out because you want to get the most out of the relationship with your beagle.
- You can’t afford to be following a dog training system that doesn’t give you results. Time is a non-renewal resource. In other words, if you will only settle for the most reliable methods.
- You who would like to enjoy the process of training your beagle so that you have fun and your beagle has fun as well!
- You would like to learn “dog language” and a way of communicating with your beagle so you know how your do thinks and why they do what they do.
- You would like to get a book with plenty of pictures that make the whole learning process fun and interesting.
This book is NOT for you if …
- You are looking for methods that rely on hitting, scolding, punishing and yelling at your beagle.
- If you are OK with saying “Bad Dog!” when faced with your daily dog problems, while deep inside you know that your beagle is not a bad dog and you can already see that this is not the solution any way.
- If you are contented with complaining about the situation but you are not ready to get it sorted out.
