You and your dog don’t speak the same language

german shepherd with owner playing

“I wish I could speak ‘dog’”.

If you’ve been a dog owner for at least a few hours, then this thought has crossed your mind on more than one occasion.
It’s safe to say there’s no app that translates your words into barking, and your dog’s barking into words.
Which is why it’s so difficult to teach your dog what you expect him to do.

Dogs don't automatically know what "good behavior" is

Throughout our dogs' life, consistent and positive training is needed to help them be a good by/good girl. If we do not observe and work with them, they will likely default to unwanted behaviors like being destructive, barking incessantly or reacting intensely to triggers.

Your dog needs you to take control and translate human rules into dog-appropriate behavior.

From this:

To this:

Your dog is excited to meet someone new

Jumps on that person

Learns the “4 on the floor” rule

Your pup doesn’t know how to play with humans

Playing rough with biting and scratching is not how humans like to play!

Your dog learns how to play appropriately and gently with you, by your rules

Your dog gets stressed easily

Sounds and other dogs make your dog lose control (barking, pulling on the leash, aggressive behavior)

Your dog can stay calm and focussed even around triggers

Training your dog is not only about obedience skills.

Through training, you and your dog learn a New language that both of you can “speak”.

So you can communicate about your expectations of what’s acceptable in your relationship. 

And just as humans go through various developmental stages, ups and downs, stress, trauma, and changes in their lives, so will your dog. Learning how to communicate in and manage those situations will make or break your relationship.

If you’re not a dog trainer, it’s impossible to know which skills to teach next - and how… Which is why most owners get stuck in their dog training

“I had given up hope, after having done 2 months of professional training and still having a reactive dog”

“...we opted to have a trainer come to our house. It was costly and while it launched our learning experience it was totally lacking for additional questions we had.”

It’s what 90% of dog owners experience when they decide it’s time to train their dog.

Many dog owners take their dogs to classes, hire private  trainers and purchase books and online courses, spending a lot of time and money to train their pup into an amazing companion. Some trainers charge 100s of dollars for such a program and most dogs will not see much improvement!

After working with thousands of in-person and online students, and struggling with this herself, our head trainer Steffi Trott created the SpiritDog online dog training community and masterclasses to help owners just like you, who need results in a reasonable time frame, without having to spend hours training every day.

If that sounds like you then the SpiritDog Training Masterclass gives you lifetime access to all the training your dog will ever need, from puppyhood to senior years and everything in between. 

All of that for less than what you’d normally pay for five 1:1 training sessions.

Perfect start to learning and bonding
My very first own puppy made me go ahhhh ... where do I even start? I had never trained a dog before to do anything. SpiritDog made training SO easy. Bindy and I love the daily play and learn sessions.

“I feel confident, optimistic and in safe hands with this course and trainer!” - Pernille Joost

“His reactivity has diminished substantially using the Spirit Dog Training program. We continue to complete all the lessons and he is very happy to do this training!... The loose leash training was fantastic for both of them and now walks are much more relaxed for all of us! I bought the big package of lessons and it is well worth it. ” - Kathy Dolezal

“the content is positive, science based, takes into account your dog as an individual and the methods just work! Steffi has some really incredible ideas. Second, I had never had things explained to me so well before. The lessons are so well thought out and everything is structured and presented in a way that's both really smart and easy to follow.” - Nathalie Demeurie

“Steffi and her team is very prompt with their response to any comments or questions you have with any training issues. It's like having a real trainer next to you except you learn way more than when you are in a class setting. I am super happy with this course. My dog is already learning to focus on me more . I am slowly getting Meeko to be a little more accepting of people and dogs in public at a distance.” - aimkins1

This is what we hear from the dog owners who use our training method.

And that’s what we promise you will find at SpiritDog. We have classes for any level of training, common problem behaviors and more, so you can teach your dog a ton of new skills AND bond over fun exercises.

And we believe you can, too.

“SpiritDog Training is the ‘Netflix of dog training’, with 700 lessons and over 400 videos demonstrating various training techniques and dealing with everything from basic obedience to behavioral issues such as separation anxiety and aggression.”

SpiritDog Training is the premier resource for online dog training. We have been featured in:

Meet your instructor

Steffi Trott is the founder of SpiritDog Training. Starting out just training her own Border Collies, since 2013 she gradually expanded to local classes and seminars, now she travels as far as Europe and teaches students all over the world on how to train their dogs in a positive, bonding, game-based way. 

She specializes in dog cognition behavior and is known for her clear, step-by-step training that lets beginners and advanced dog trainers see lasting results very quickly.

From puppy to senior, here’s how the Masterclass Bundle helps you and your dog:

1. You have a puppy

separation anxiety

Puppies are cute and funny – but they can also drive you crazy. Having a puppy join your family is one of the most exciting moments of dog ownership. Watching a young dog explore the world, learn many new things every day and become your best friend is a rewarding and wonderful experience.

Over 70% of all problem behaviors originate during puppyhood.

It is a good thing they are adorable when they chew up your headphones, have accidents on the expensive rug in your living room or bark wildly at an imaginary intruder in the middle of the night.

The first year in a dog’s life is a critical period – you need to get it right. Mistakes during puppy raising will have lifelong consequences like:

“ I was regretting getting a puppy!!”

Not starting with training the right way will make any future obedience training harder and more time-consuming.

With the SpiritDog Masterclass Bundle you get the training and support you need to help your puppy become the amazing companion he is meant to be.

Skills you can teach your puppy with this program

2. You have an adolescent pup

lonely dog at the window

Puppy training seems like a breeze – until your dog hits his teenage years. Their excitement goes off the rails more often than before… and it can easily turn into anxiety, and even aggressivity. They’re not coming back when called. They become more anxious than usual. It becomes stressful to go out on a walk, because you never know what’s going to set them off. 

Adolescent dogs can be tricky to train!

The teenage stage is when dogs go either one of two ways: They become really well-behaved companions - or they become out of control.

It is really important that you do not give up on training now. Don’t think that what you are doing has no impact. If behaviors like those mentioned above go unaddressed, dogs can ingrain them to a point at which it is impossible to fix them completely.

3. You have a senior dog

german shepherd front view

As dogs age, taking care of them becomes more difficult. From the type of activity they get, to their diet, when your dog goes a little gray in the muzzle, you need to make significant changes in their routine so they can live the senior stage of their life healthy and comfortable. Many dog owners stop offering their dogs stimulating activity, bounding time and exercise, assuming that an old dog… is too old to play or learn new tricks.

It’s not too late to train your older dog

Dogs in their senior years might have health problems, suffer from hearing and vision loss, as well as have physical limitations that make it hard for them to be obedient, like hear you when you’re calling them. They might learn more slowly, but they can learn nonetheless. In some cases, maybe even better, because they’re less distracted and energetic than a young pup.

Senior dogs need different training from teenage dogs.

Many adult dogs tend to pick up bad habits throughout their life. So, with them, the first thing to do is learn how to untrain the bad habits. Changing a senior’s behavior is different from a teenager’s, which is why you need to use training that is adapted to what they can do. 

Our calm courses are perfect for offering low-impact exercises. There is no reason to stop learning or playing once your dog ages – we are here for you throughout all of his life!

18,551 owners trained their senior dog with this program

Here’s where we recommend to start in the Masterclass Bundle:

Slow Down (value $49 - included with your tuition)

Using smart brain games for calm and focused exercises - so that your dog can work his mind while resting his body.

Indoor Games (value $99 - included with your tuition)

Play in the smallest spaces, with equipment you already have around the house! Just 5-10 minutes of daily games will strengthen your dog's focus and thinking skills.

Canine Fitness (value $59 - included with your tuition)

Keep your dog fit and healthy by incorporating workout routines into his life! This class is taught by a certified canine fitness trainer.

4. You have a dog with a problem behavior

german shepherds puppy biting

Most dogs will develop some kind of troubling behavior in their lifetimes. Issues like aggressive behavior, incessant barking, destructive chewing, howling or food guarding, are more common than you think. And that’s only a few of the behavior problems that a dog owner will discover in their companion over their lifetime.

There are over 25 common dog problem behaviors… here are just a few:

Left unattended, all behavior problems can negatively affect dogs’ quality of life

The good news is that if caught early, you can help your dog overcome such problem behaviors by learning how to calm them down, identify their triggers, and more.

5. You have a trained dog, now what?

german shepherd with owner playing

Congrats. You’ve done the work and your dog has learned all the skills necessary to live life as an amazing companion by your side. Now it’s crucial to maintain his or her skills through regular and consistent refreshers.

Practice. Practice. Practice.
And have fun while at it.

Training is definitely something that you will want to keep maintaining. Dogs are constantly learning so taking opportunities to keep practicing and setting your dog up for success will make a huge difference in preventing triggers or reverting to bad habits. 

Maintenance is the secret of ensuring your dog keeps the skills they learned early on. This includes creating fun routines that help your dog practice what he has learned in a fun and safe way.

Maintenance is about being proactive

Oftentimes, dog owners react to their pet’s misbehavior and that’s when training becomes a solution. With maintenance you anticipate and teach your dog how to behave in potential situations that might trigger misbehavior. It’s about being proactive, instead of reactive. Use sport and games to refresh your dog’s memory, give them some fun times and strengthen your relationship.

Here’s where we recommend to start in the Masterclass Bundle:

Agility @ Home (value $199 - included with your tuition)

Teach your dog the great sport of dog agility - from the comfort of your home!

SpiritDog Parkour (value $120 - included with your tuition)

A new sport that you can play in every environment - from your living room over the park to the city center!

Taking Turns (value $29 - included with your tuition)

Have 2 or more dogs? Let's teach them to wait their turn patiently while others are training.

Dog Tricks (value $29 - included with your tuition)

Leg weaves, crawling, and even handstands - we make a circus dog out of your pup!

I am SO happy we signed up for this course! I learned more about my dog's reactivity in the first two lessons than I did in multiple sessions with a private dog trainer. My dog Moka and I are about halfway through the course and not only do I now understand her reactivity better, we are also seeing slow but sure results!! Steffi is amazing not only in how she presents her material, but also in the fact that she responds personally to every single individual who might have specific questions about their dog, which is pretty unheard of especially in an online class where thousands of people take it. She is truly dedicated to helping us and I am so grateful. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other classes when we finish this one. I know I will be coming back to the information over and over again. Thank you Steffi 🙏🙏🙏

I just started the Tacking Reactivity and it has provided the missing piece and I'm already seeing amazing results with my rescue dog! I previously spent hundreds of dollars on private training lessons, group Reactivity classes and other online courses. The suggestions here are so much easier to follow and having the videos is so helpful. I'm finally feeling hopeful that someday we will be able to go on a "normal" dog walk without him going ballistic at the sight of another dog.

I was a little suspicious about online training, I have to admit, but SprititDog blew me away. First, the content is positive, science based, takes into account your dog as an individual and the methods just work! Steffi has some really incredible ideas. Second, I had never had things explained to me so well before. The lessons are so well thought out and everything is structured and presented in a way that's both really smart and easy to follow. Third, customer service is incredible. You can ask questions and you get help and answers quickly, and you can just feel how passionate they are about helping us help our dogs. I found a few hours here already more helpful than any trainer I've ever hired in person. I really wish I had found SpiritDog years ago!

Training a pup is not an easy task, it takes time, consistency, patience and the right people leading the way. After my first few lessons I have already seen a huge change in my pup. The course, Steffi, and Elise are amazing. I truly enjoy logging in to learn how to help my pup. The lessons are extremely informational and the feedback to questions is like having a trainer right here with us! I am not even half-way through the course and can't wait to see what the rest of it brings!! Thank you all for helping me learn how to help my pup....you are amazing!!!

I finished Tackling reactivity course and I am very happy I took it. My dog is reactive towards dog, and we are following Steffi’s advice for about 10 days now and doing much much better. Our walks in past few days looked very unreactive🤗 We still have a long way, but it is much easier as I understand everything better now and therefore also my handling got better. Big thank you!

I highly recommend Spirit Dog Training. My rescue was anxious about dogs, strangers, car horns and car drives. We successfully completed the online Reactivity course and he is a completely changed dog. I really liked the format of the course, with it's text, videos, quizzes and especially the interactive component where Steffi answered my specific questions. Before, I dreaded walking my dog anywhere because of his reactivity to other dogs. Now he goes everywhere with us including the dog park and is fine with visitors too. Whenever I see others struggling with reactive dogs, I tell them about SpiritDog Training.

Just started the Reactivity Course and am so pleased with each section so far. Lots of detail and good, rational explanations about triggers, threshold, equipment, safety, etc. The fact I can not only go over each lesson as many times as I want but also learn from all the posted questions and answers is such a confidence builder! Highly recommend to anyone who wants a humane, scientific and non-confrontational method of addressing reactivity.
Pernille Joost Highly reccomend! Great course and trainer!

We are about 1/2 through the course - and already loving it! Everything is very simply explained - From the theory behind, the practical stuff, preparation, what to expect and the actual training. I love that it has text, illustrations, videos, comments and answers and short quizzes. Steffi (the trainer) seems very empathetic and conveys great patience and understanding of the struggles and frustrations that come with having a reactive dog. We've only just started, but I've seen changes, and my whole attitude to working with my boys reactivity has changed - I feel confident, optimistic and in safe hands with this course and trainer! I highly recommend this course for anyone struggling with a reactive dog - and who does not wish to use aversive methods 🙂

I am so pleased with myself for moving forward with training and taking the Spiritdog training reactivity course. I never expected immediate miracles but after 2mos I can definitely see a calmer dog (2.5 yo rescue dog I adopted at 10mos old) in most situations that were over and above him prior to your guidance. Every email and message you post takes me to a another level of knowing how to best train. This retired senior from north of Boston 'thanks you' every day.

As a professional dog trainer, I am constantly learning from other trainers to improve my art and skill. I also like to review on line training programs to recommend to clients to enhance the learning process since I do not have such content of my own. I have been reviewing Spirit Dog's Tackling Reactivity course and am delighted. Steffi is extremely knowledgeable and her program is thorough and detailed. She provides students with great clarity on essential topics and phenomenal support with 24/7 answers to questions and terrific email reminders and teaching tidbits. I have already recommended this course to others and I look forward to reviewing more Spirit Dog courses!

Excellent video. I started your course 14 days ago and in the first lesson you do talk about 'prevention' first and foremost. My puppy was reacting to trucks and tractors on our road; chasing and barking along our fence. He is 9 months old and this behaviour just started. When I did lesson one, I immediately ordered a black screen for our fence. It arrived in 2 days and we put it up. I also started supervising his time outside (brought him in when I heard a truck or tractor coming) and began our counter conditioning training. I have been walking him daily slowly letting the trucks and tractors get closer (with an escape route planned of course). We have made HUGE improvements. Today lots of tractors and trucks went by when he was loose in his yard. He can see shadows through the fence and of course hear them loudly. Only glances towards the road but NO reactions!!! Woooo hoo Steffi your course is wonderful! Photo attached of Casper. Thank you

I started the reactivity course a couple weeks ago for my adolescent Toy Aussie. He is very dog-leash reactive. I’ve seen a huge improvement in his behavior!! He’s way less reactive when we’re out on walks, or working on training in the front yard. Even my husband has noticed that walking Skippy is less embarrassing, and he never notices anything. 😅😁

There's so much to love about the SpiritDog training! After having read many books, followed many courses and sought help of in-person trainers, we were still struggling with behavioral issues of our canine companion.

I am really enjoying this course, Tackling Reactivity. The explanations and supporting videos are very clear. I like Steffi's no-nonsense and straightforward way of describing what she means. We are only beginners at the reactivity training but I feel I have enough confidence to succeed. I have also tried other trainers' methods but find this one precise and without lots of "hype". Access to other users' comments is very useful and seeing SpiritDog's responses is informative.

While only half way through the Reactivity course, it has been SO helpful already with our meximutt rescue! We've worked with a trainer for some basics, but SpiritDog has had some great tips that I hadn't seen elsewhere, and are really helping our dog be more comfortable when meeting people and passing dogs on walks. It's great to work through the courses at our own pace, and being able to ask questions throughout to get specifics for our situation has been so useful! Definitely recommend!

only wish I had signed up a year ago. Instead we opted to have a trainer come to our house. It was costly and while it launched our learning experience it was totally lacking for additional questions we had. There weren’t any videos or reference material and no opportunity to read how others were handling the course. I enjoy the comments and all the suggestions offered for this online class. I become energized with Steffi’s approach to knowing how reactive training should be approached. I’m totally looking forward to making it through the complete reactivity training session and bringing my rescue dog, Jake into a lifestyle where he feels more confident and secure. thank you for all the hard work you’ve incorporated into the reactivity course.

The Tackling Reactivity Course of Spirit Dog Training really has given me exactly what I needed to not only understand why my dog behaves like she does, it also offers very helpful tools for counterconditioning and training.

My dog and I still have a way to go but this course already absolutely exceeds my expectations.

I am absolutely loving this course! I have learned so much already and cant wait to put it all into practice.

Hi Steffi I just wanted to share with you a little celebration. I started the reactive dog program back earlier this summer. My, now 18 month old border collie was very reactive to other dogs and some people. And while we are not entirely through this behavior yet, she can keep herself composed enough to pass the AKC canine good citizen test. This includes meeting another person with their dog and walking on a loose leash (which I learned how to help her with from your blog about loose leash walking). Without going into lots of details…because as you know there are always little triggers everywhere… Sophie was able to be in an arena full of other dogs and people she didn’t know and stay focused on me while still being able to look at and sniff in the direction of other dogs. It was amazing. I’m so happy. So thank you for your offerings. You make things simple and no big deal which is perfect for her breed and my temperament, too! Here’s Sophie with her ribbon (she also passed her trick novice and intermediate tests that day!) 🙏

We’re working our way through the Tackling Reactivity course, and it’s great. I have taken my dogs to many courses over the years, hired trainers and purchased other online courses, and this is absolutely the best. Thank you!

My dog is 5 yrs old and unbelievably reactive to other dogs on leash; she looks and sounds like she wants to eat them and this happens all of the time. She is a rescue, and after having puppies on the street I though this behaviour was absolutely engrained and was just something i would have to accept. We are just a couple of weeks into the reactivity course and I am seeing small changes in her attention toward me when facing her triggers. This in itself has been a huge step as we've been to group classes and had a personal trainer at home, both of which were not effective in their methods. The lessons are very informative and easy to follow. They give us a great foundation of understanding why our dogs react the way they do, then small steps to make the training effective. It's taking a lot of consistency on my part but absolutely worth it when seeing gradual changes. The trainers are very attentive to the students and are there through the process, promptly answering questions as I'm facing new challenges. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone with a reactive dog; we're both learning so much together!

Hi Steffi Just a few days in and I would already highly recommend your Tackling Reactivity Program to anyone with a highly reactive dog! Thor (our Jack Russell) & I have been practicing the sniffing exercise using scattered treats for several days now and have progressed to doing this in longer lawn grass on our outdoor walks morning and night. Thor is very reactive to other dogs and nothing has helped but this evening when we encountered 2 other dogs at different times he began to get agitated but when I tossed his treats in the grass he was more interested in sniffing for his treats than leaping on his leash and barking at the other dogs! A very promising start! Thanks! Derry Bunting and Thor Ragnarock

I have recently enrolled in the Tackling Reactivity course. I must say prior to enrolment i was quite skeptical especially when the course was delivered online without a face to face trainer to help problem solve. I have a 15 month old Toy Moodle- he is a Covid puppy. Being a first pet owner I have no idea how important socialisation is for Meeko. I thought as long as we bring him out for a walk and play in the park he should be ok. When he was growing up we have a few visitors that came over to the house and played with him without any issues. The problem started when he turned 1. When our country's 6 months lockdown was lifted, Meeko became anxious in the park.Going to the shops became very stressful for the family as he got defensive and reactive to people and dogs that came near him. This went on for a few months until i stumbled across Spirit Dog Training. This course was carefully prepared from the science behind the "Why" dogs are reactive to "How" we can manage and then "Train" to overcome that behaviour. It was eye opening for me even before the actual training began. What really struck me most was to understand how my dog's constant "Rehearsal" of his reactivity can ultimately be deeply ingrained into him and if that is not resolved, it will be even harder to untrain that behaviour. Steffi taught us to constantly be aware of the "triggers" that will set him off and help train him to associate that trigger to something positive. The other thing that i found very useful was how clear Steffi was in her teaching of the training "Mechanics". I realised my previous training methods had flaws hence the progress was slow. Steffi and her team is very prompt with their response to any comments or questions you have with any training issues. It's like having a real trainer next to you except you learn way more than when you are in a class setting. I am super happy with this course. My dog is already learning to focus on me more . I am slowly getting Meeko to be a little more accepting of people and dogs in public at a distance. I have to keep reminding myself that there is no quick fix for the Reactivity problem. I have to protect Meeko's confidence so that the training will not go in vain. Highly Recommend ! Give it a go !!

I really like this course. I am taking the reactivity course. It is very simple, yet so effective!

“I have tried other trainings before, how is this different?”

And answers to other big questions

Question #1: “I have tried dog training before, how is this different?”

Maybe you’ve invested money in working with a 1:1 trainer, maybe you’ve tried to train your dog yourself following YouTube videos… Or maybe you’ve tried other online dog training courses before and the results haven’t been what you expected.

So, here’s what makes this different:

  • Tens of thousands of dog owners just like you tried our framework and proved that the SpiritDog online classes can facilitate quick and lasting results. You can read about their results with our methods in the testimonials section of this page.
  • Our classes consist of videos that show you the progression of a skill from the very beginning until it is perfected. That way you have the entire training process in front of you and can follow along with your dog from home.
  • You get PERSONALIZED FEEDBACK from certified trainers. This means that whatever question you might have about training your dog, using our processes and more, you can ask and have an answer, usually within 48 hrs.
  • Training success is about consistency, which is why our method gives results when you invest at least 10 minutes per day in teaching your dog a new behavior. This means that you don’t have to invest hours and hours of going through boring, extensive training before you and your dog see results with what you’ve learned.
  • With this training method you won’t have to use corrective collars, leash pops, harsh words or bribes. Our method is known as cognitive dog training which treats your dog as a partner in learning, and it encourages your dog to think and solve problems. This is a great way not only to change your dog’s behavior but also to improve your human-dog relationship.
  • We are committed to making you and your dog happy, so if you don’t see any results after implementing our training method within the first 60 days after your purchase, we’ll refund your money, no questions asked. All you have to do is email our friendly support team within 60 days of your purchase. 
Question #2: “What happens if I get stuck and need extra guidance?”

Every dog is an individual and every situation is unique! With that comes the need for personal feedback during training.

The SpiritDog Masterclass Bundle gives you access to unlimited LIFETIME feedback from our professional trainers. Ask as many questions as you like – we are happy to help and want to watch you succeed!

Question #3: “Why should I buy the Bundle instead of the individual courses?”

Great question. Here are a few reasons why the Bundle makes a great investment to any dog owner:

  1. Training your dog is about consistency and being proactive. The courses in this bundle give you everything you need to train your dog through every stage of his life so he can become the companion you’ve always wanted (step-by-step instructions, interactive learning, unlimited personalized feedback from trainers).
  2. Dogs have five learning phases in their life, each with its own set of problem behaviors and unique challenges for you, the dog owner. Most dog owners decide to train their dog when the behavior becomes a problem, disrupting their lifestyle or endangering the dog. It doesn’t have to get to this point. With our roadmap you can prevent situations when you and your dog lose control.
  3. Training your dog can be very difficult if you don’t have professional support and a proper framework. This Bundle gives you lifetime access to personalized feedback from our support team, as well as straightforward, no-fluff, training materials that you can use with your dog from the comfort of your own home.
  4. A normal in person dog training session costs about $100. The problem is that you need more than one session to ensure the new skills stick to your dog, which can add up to a significant amount, without seeing significant results. The bundle gives you knowledge, support and guidance to help your dog become the amazing companion he is meant to be for a fraction of the price
Question #4: “What if this training method doesn’t work for my dog?

Our purchases are risk-free! We have a 100% money-back guarantee and will gladly refund your money within the first 60 days if you are unhappy for any reason.

Question #5: “I don’t want to punish or correct my dog. Does this training framework use these methods?”

We do not utilize or recommend any kind of physical or verbal corrections.

Our training framework does not make use of corrective collars, leash pops, harsh words or other means of intimidation or punishment.

Question #6: “My dog is not food-driven, will this still work?”

Every animal is food-driven – if they were not, they would be dead.

 

The reasons many dogs refuse treats are either that they are too stressed to eat or that we have not yet found the treats they REALLY love.

In this class, we discuss in detail how to address both possible causes. We teach you about how to find the right treats for your dog, as well as how to react if your dog refuses treats during training.

So far every single student has succeeded in getting their dog to take treats!

Question #7: “I don’t want to just bribe my dog with treats to behave!”

Good – because we also don’t want you to do that!

 

In our courses, we use treats to change the dog’s “CER” (conditioned emotional response). In the beginning you will use many treats, but over time the dog’s actual feelings about his triggers change and you can fade the treats – your dog will still behave.

Question #8: “I have a puppy. Will this help me?”

Yes, the SpiritDog Masterclass Bundle includes everything you need to teach your puppy skills such as potty only outside, appropriate play with humans, no biting, obedience training, crate training, staying alone without destroying the house and more.

Question #9: “I have a senior dog. Will this help me?”

Yes. Dogs in their senior years might have health problems, suffer from hearing and vision loss, as well as have physical limitations that make it hard for them to be obedient, like hear you when you’re calling them. They might learn more slowly, but they can learn nonetheless. Our calm courses are perfect for offering low-impact exercises, bonding time and behavior training to your senior dog.

Question #10: “I have a hyperactive dog. Will this help me?”

Yes. Most dogs will develop some kind of troubling behavior in their lifetimes. Issues like aggressive behavior, incessant barking, destructive chewing, howling or food guarding, are more common than you think. And that’s only a few of the behavior problems that a dog owner will discover in their companion over their lifetime. 

The SpiritDog Masterclass Bundle includes everything you need to teach your dog skills such as manners in public, coming when called, leash walking skills, polite greetings and more.

Question #11: “I have a reactive dog. Will this help me?”

Yes! The SpiritDog Masterclass Bundle contains the Tackling Reactivity course which has been used by more than 37000 dog owners to help their dog through their reactive behavior. That and more is waiting for you when you unlock the bundle. 

Help your dog become the amazing companion you know he can be

As a dog owner it is in your power to help your dog acquire the skills that make him a confident, well-behaved companion. Through training you’re doing more than solving problem behavior. You are effectively learning a new way to communicate with your dog, and helping your companion live happily and comfortably in a home environment. 

The courses in the Masterclass Bundle have helped more than 33.000 dog owners just like you train their dogs with confidence thanks to a scientific method that empowers both you and your dog with life changing skills. 

Help your dog become the ultimate teammate in your life.

Please note: Management is the #1 priority when owning reactive or aggressive dogs. You should never rely on training alone. It is your responsibility to keep your dog on a leash, in a securely fenced yard etc.
Every dog is different, and different training systems will work for different dogs.

Dogs will show different speed and levels of improvement based on how reactive they are, how ingrained this behavior is and how well they are managed around their triggers. Breed-specific tendencies will contribute to the outcomes.

This course is not intended to cure dogs with a bite history. If you struggle to manage your dog around his triggers (for example because he can pull you over, or he is aggressive towards members of the household), you should always consult an in-person trainer for advice.
