Path to Sucess courses are available to purchase as individual units for Members Only (those who purchased the Complete Package and have already taken four Path to Success units). This is a great option for anyone who wishes to retake a particular unit or just wants to spend more time on a specific topic.

After puchasing this unit, just go ahead and register under the Class Schedule for a BLUE session at a location and time that is convenient for you.

BLUE Class Focus - Don't Correct ... Re-direct!

Instead of correcting a dog that does something we don’t like, but we don’t want them to continue doing, we use a training protocol called the “Substitution Routine” to prevent and/or eliminate that behavior. Whether it’s barking at the cat, or jumping on guests, he needs to learn what it is he SHOULD be doing.

When he has the opportunity to learn what you want from him, you’ll begin to see him offer more appropriate responses. By “substituting” an undesirable behavior such as barking, with something you want to see repeated such as sitting quietly, you’ll be more effective at training while continuing to strengthen your relationship.

Following this program and eliminating the use of corrections will give you the results you are looking for. For the life and well-being of your dog.
