Free Dog Training eBook – The Power of Positive Reinforcements


Have you ever wanted a dog so behaved and well-trained that people compliment on his awesomeness?

Well, this is exactly what happened to me when I started training my dog with Positive Reinforcements (this is a fancy name for reward-based, force-free training.)

Friends and family started to compliment me on how well-behaved my dog was, and how much they loved her because of all the amazing tricks she could now do. And once I taught my dog how to play chess (yes, I taught her that!), I just knew that this training method was the most powerful thing on earth.

And this is why I wrote this eBook that I’m giving away for free – the Power of Positive Reinforcements.

I want you and all dog owners around the world to experience this way of training. Because it simply works – some of the world’s greatest dogs were trained using this method. And best of all, dogs absolutely LOVE it! (And it even brings you closer to your dog!)

You’ll discover inside the eBook…

  • Your dog’s deepest desire (page 23) – Without it, you will never be able to effectively train your dog to do anything. (Think of it like being paid for a job well done – you have to figure out what motivates your dog so you can get him to do … what you want him to do!)
  • Training your dog to come (page 26) – This is the MOST important skill you can ever teach your dog … think about it, what would happen if your dog got loose near a busy street? You need a way to get your dog to come back to you!
  • Walking on a loose leash (page 34) – It is a well-known fact that lack of exercise leads to destructive behaviors. And the easiest way to exercise your dog is to WALK your dog … but who wants to go on a walk while getting dragged down the road?
  • Avoiding food possessiveness (page 39) – Perhaps you’ve already noticed that your dog doesn’t like having you near his food bowl … but did you know that there’s something you can do about it? In fact, you can even get your dog to LOVE you being near it.
  • Grooming your dog (page 43) – Brushing and taking care of your dog’s coat is extremely important – but how many dogs hate it? The simple exercises in this section will help solve that problem forever!
  • Obedience training (page 50) – Want your dog to listen to your “Sit”, “Down” or “Stand” command? Simply follow the step-by-step instruction in this chapter and you’ll get your very own Lassie!
  • Teaching your dog tricks (page 58) – What would the world be without dog tricks? They entertain us and dogs absolutely LOVE doing them … so why not take a few minutes of your day and teach your dog some of the best dog tricks?

And this is just a small sample of what is inside the eBook. Again, I wrote this eBook because I wanted to spread the word about Positive Reinforcement training and how much of a difference it can make in your dog’s life.

    Hi Jean,

    Ever since I started reading (and ‘devouring’ and using) your fantastic methods on dog training with my Husky/Malamute CHESTER – he can read (even upside down!) SIT, DOWN, STAND, sit on left or right side (by front or back cross-over) on ‘change’ or something ‘switch’.

    He can ‘crawl’ following me (in down-come’), shake R & L paws and lift R or L paws sitting opposite me mirroring my L or R knee lift.

    Stick ’em up paws onto a wall. Two ‘high fives’ or one.

    Stand on box (front paws) & rotate and get on a chair – all fours & rotate.

    ‘Woof’ for please.

    He’s very good on a loose leash now.

    90% recall but ongoing work on this. I’m working on Down! from distance command too; and ‘down wait’ (I call him to me), ‘down stay’ (I come back to him).

    Leave, ignore (go-by) = watch me (eyes on me).

    Working on body languages together – no words but hand signs too.

    He can fetch and drop ball into hands (& pick it up if dropped), catch on a high throw or bounce, and collect several thrown toys and put into a bin or bowl to ‘tidy up’ too.

    Spin Gee and Yaw ‘right & left) & is learning on turns while on lead incl. ‘walk on’ starts & stops (sitting immediately on stop) plus, steady (slow down &/or wait at the curbside, & the same (from both sides) and ‘about turn’s’ too.

    ★★I’d like to know how to teach him how to do simple dance steps beside me then opposite … and behind me…

    THANK YOU FROM MY HEART – he loves learning & goes through tricks spontaneously just to ask for treats!

    New 2 yr old (rescue/rehome H/M) girl coming as playmate in Sept – she’ll be learning all this too.

    He has his own FB page – Chester Cottee. He is especially invited on dinner nights to friends too!

      Hi Marianne,

      That is fantastic that you’ve gotten such amazing results with your dog, but you have to give credit where it’s due – you. You were the one who cared and took the time to train your dog. So don’t forget to give yourself a big pat on the back! You deserve it!

      What is Chester’s Facebook page? I’d love to check it out, and I’m sure others would too!

      Unfortunately the software doesn’t allow us to “edit” comments. I have to do it in the administrative panel; I did add a few line breaks though. 🙂

    How can I get my dog Malamutex Jerman shepherd to stop digging my lawn.

    Having difficult time with my 7.5 month old BC
    Had some aggression issues when he came to us as a baby (9 wks) I did training.
    1. He had food issues eating so fast and going after a little 4 pound we have. He now eats a lot slower, and waits for his turn at snack time.
    2. Very strong desire to chase cars- I can walk with him in the road ( I don’t due to safety issues)
    Those are the major issues.
    I need help with this dog! He is a fast learner as BC’s are, but he has a dark side. He can play hard. When he approaches another dog it seems when the dog walks away is when he gets Upset and will try to bite. He has been in puppy class at 12 weeks, brought every where we could take him. He is not only dog. We are in 2 beginner classes and an obedience class and now working class for handling. So he’s with a lot of dogs. I do tell people he has issues so the can watch out with their dogs.
    How do I train him with this issue?
    Please help.

      Provide play toys and don’t leave him out. Needs stimulation,
      Basically he’s board.

      Hi Joy,

      #1: I would try hand-feeding him with kibble or dropping one/two kibble at a time in his food bowl. That will slow him down. Plus you can use that as a training opportunity too, I’ve done that many times with my dogs when they were growing up. Kind of like they had to earn their meal. 🙂

      #2: You should consider taking my Walk In Harmony Game Plan, this is all about stopping a dog from pulling but the way that it’s done is by building attention and self-control skills. What you’d want to do is redirect your dog’s attention whenever there is a car driving by. And at first you’d want to start where the cars are far enough that he’s still able to focus but close enough that it’s slightly distracting. Then you’d want to gradually reduce that distance until your dog can walk with you.

      Here is the page to learn more about this program if you are interested:

      3: As for your dog aggression, what you need to do is counter-conditioning. Basically you want to give your dog a reward whenever he sees another dog. If your timing is good then your dog will build a positive association to other dogs, as they become the trigger for good things to come. The only downside is it takes time and really good timing. For example if you take out the treat from your pocket before your dog sees the other dog, then you taking out the treat has become the trigger and the new conditioning to the other dog hasn’t been made.

      But you mention that you are taking obedience classes. You want to be careful with training around other dogs if that particular school promotes “correcting” the dog for making mistakes. For example if your dog sees another dog walking nearby and they tell you to “correct” your dog if he breaks a stay. That over time can make your dog not like the other dogs.

      A better approach is to do like the car, create more distance and reward the good choices that your dog makes.

    Thanks for the helpful advice! Charlie was a rescue black Lab 6 years ago and has come on wonderfully. Highly intelligent, he loves all the attention we are able to give him and understands a great deal of verbal communication. Our only problem is with that terrible Labrador greed! He will, and does, eat anything. OK, mouse hunting I can understand for instance, but indoors he is constantly begging for food. I try to keep him active and busy as far as I can but have other commitments too! He gets about 2 hours of walks, off lead, daily where he can run, swim, hunt, play etc and is a happy dog but the food demands are a bit much. We do have the ‘carrot game’ we play. Throwing a raw carrot from the patio of our flat into the garden below and he has to run down the steps and find it in the bushes (he loves carrots), but I can’t play it all day!! Any advice welcome.

    Hi Jean,

    Thank you for making this ebook available. I would love to get a copy, but every time I put in my details and press “send me the ebook”, the website never stops loading and the ebook doesn’t send. Is it still available? If so, how can I go about getting it?
