Summary

The celebrated dog trainer Corrie Burns shares her training system that can help you transform any dog - from spoiled purebred puppy to shelter-shocked rescue - into a model companion you've always wanted in just a few days. 

Through the ideas compiled in her audiobook Dog Training Basics, Corrie Burns rescues untrained, unwanted, unadoptable shelter dogs on a weekly basis. In the days that follow, these dogs undergo a remarkable transformation as they learn to trust Corrie, master her simple commands, and overcome their behavior problems - ultimately becoming well-mannered puppies and even service dogs. With her labor of love and dedication, Corrie unites each dog with a forever family. 

In her first audiobook, Cynophobia, Corrie Burns shared the knowledge she has gained working with thousands of dogs of every breed and personality to help listeners overcome their fear of dogs and also turn their own pets into well-trained dog graduates. 

Dog Training Basics begins with the foundation - building trust, establishing focus and control, and mastering training techniques. From there, Corrie explains her playful, careful, and kind approach to training the simple commands she teaches every dog as you will find in a few chapters from now. 

Next, Corrie provides solutions to common canine behavior problems, including house training issues, door dashing, chewing, barking, and common mealtime misbehavior. Dog Training Basics lessons includes easy-to-follow steps, examples, tried-and-proven tips and tricks, and all you need to raise your puppy. Throughout the audiobook, Corrie Burns shares inspiring stories about her favorite students. 

Corrie Burns believes that no dog is beyond saving, and the loving, positive, successful methods she offers will work wonders with even the most challenging dog. Create the happy pet family you want with Dog Training Basics

Effective methods

The methods which I applied to my dog really helped me in making him behave well. And I got surprised after seeing the effectiveness these methods cause.

Fun and practical

This book is a mix of fun and practical in the sense that you can teach your dog essential obedience training like not to chew on furniture or where to use the bathroom, but you can also teach them fun tricks! Your dog will be a happier and more well-behaved pup after you apply the knowledge you learned from this book. Don’t waste time and money on trying to do it yourself or buying obedience training.

Don't halfway train your dog

The way that the author of this book breaks down dog training is so intuitive and easy to understand. Dog training has always been difficult for me and it has usually ended up with me only partially training my dog, just enough so that my dog doesn’t embarrass me. But this book is really giving me more information than I ever could’ve asked for, so now I feel like I can fully train my dog to be an obedient and fun dog.

Just an awesome book!

This book is amazing. From A to Z it delivers the best information out there. My little puppy is super active now so it is really important to control him a bit. With this particular book, I am more than able to do that. My dog seems really happy as well.

Understand your dog better

It can be hard to train your dog when you and your dog don’t understand each other. This book teaches you how to learn to communicate more effectively with your dog, so your training time is cut drastically. This is such useful, comprehensive, and practical advice. Trying to go at dog training alone is essentially futile, so accept some of the best advice you can get in this area. You’ll be happy that you did.

Strategies that work.

In the past I had some unpleasant experience with dog training, using well-known authors advice and couldn't really train my dog in a way I wished it will be. This guide did that 100% so I am really happy about that. Highly recommend this book!

Training the Best Dog ever

This audio book is clearly written step by step. It also has check lists in the back to follow when training. It is the best I have seen.

Helpful Training Material

Love this audio book. It is all about positive reinforcement and not shaming or screaming at your puppy. Definitely recommend. It was very helpful for training our excitable golden doodle.

Very effective. My Lab puppy is much better disciplined because of this audible book. My only complaint is I feel the author is a bit wordy.

Happy dog, happy life

Very informative. I liked the reinforcement on how dogs don't have good memory. I'm always reminding my husband that you have to basically catch in the act.

my dogs love Cesar

I've learned so much from Cesar as a dog owner and dog trainer. This audiobook allowed me to come up with ideas to help my dogs and my clients' dogs relax and feel safe when we are away. Not to mention helping us Dog Owners know our dogs are calm and comfortable.
