Stop Resource Guarding (usually retails at $149) - 243 students - 42 lessons

Leave the days of stealing items and playing keep-away behind you!

"My dog just doesn't want to Drop It"

"My dog loves to play keep-away"

"She steals underwear and runs around"

"I tried to offer a treat as a trade but my dog still won't give up what he got"

Do any of these sound familiar?

Resource Guarding and refusing to drop items is one of the most frustrating issues dog owners face.
But the good news are that we can resolve it with the right approach.

Throughout my years of in-person training I developed the unique technique of “long trading“. 

Long Trading allows you to:

  • Make your dog feel safe with you around their resources
  • Teach a solid and reliable Drop It
  • Take your dog’s stress level into account and react appropriately every step of the way

The course includes “long trading” videos of my own trained dog, as well as a completely untrained client’s dog.

Over 33,000 dog owners are using the SpiritDog training method!

“These are fantastic courses and really do address the problems we all face with our dogs. The ability to ask questions and have them answered promptly is fantastic. These guys are so helpful. I highly recommend them to anyone who's looking to train their dog.” - Alex McCarthy

Pepe the Poodle has a LOT of energy. We struggle with leash pulling, barking, jumping ... adding a daily agility practice into our schedule made him calmer and much happier.
He sleeps for hours after our training. I made S jumps and set them up in the backyard. He now can do 6 different courses already and we continue learning more!

The games are so fun and easy to start! I watch a video, get my dog and get training. I come home late and feel guilty for not spending a lot of time with my dog during the day, but playing at night makes up for it! Mira gets giddy as soon as I get the treat bowl.

Enjoying the online trick training class very much! Training methods are geared to the dog's comfort and takes the process of learning into consideration. It's not just about the tricks, it's about the relationship with the dog, communicating clearly, and having fun!

Andy is very athletic and enjoys the parkour so much. We use it on our walks and hikes in the forest now, as he does it naturally anyway. Such great engagement between him and us! Such fun learning and training Andy. I think your trainings are great!

“I wanted to thank you for teaching such an amazing class. I will continue to work on many activities with my dogs long after the class is competed. Even more that the exercises, activities and courses you have provided, I wanted to thank you for giving me the CONFIDENCE and “permission” to do what I feel is best for my dogs.”

We always wanted to try agility with our Terrier, he is crazy and loves to run and jump. This course is so much fun. We made the PVC jump and set them up in the backyard. Now our dog runs to the gate every morning to do his little course!
