Dog training guides available on the internet unfortunately fall into the “anyone with half a brain can write a guide" category of information products. This is unfortunate because it means that the few really good ones tend to be lumped together with the poor ones and the whole lot is written off as not worth considering.
That would be a big mistake for any dog owner wishing to train their pet dog themselves without enlisting the services of a professional dog trainer.
So what are the advantages of these dog training guides for the “go it alone" dog trainer?
Firstly there are the practicalities of not having to make sure you and your dog make it to the appointments on time. While putting regular time aside for the training is obviously crucial, if you do it yourself then an hour or two late every now and then is not a major catastrophe.
Secondly, by not relying on somebody else's physical presence during the training sessions, you are more likely to develop your own style of training. This in turn will strengthen the bond between you and your dog.
Thirdly, having written and sometimes, audio and video material, at your disposal you can go over various aspects of the course again and again at your leisure.
Fourthly, one of the major pluses for buying a dog training guide off the internet is that you can easily and quickly shop around and see what the various courses offer.
Finally, if the courses are sold through a reputable site like Clickbank, then you have a cast iron money back guarantee in place that if you dont like the course, you can return it for a full refund within 8 weeks of purchase.
Dog traiing guides bought over the internet can provide a real, value for money, alternative for anyone wishing to train a dog. Choose carefully and the whole exercise can be hugely beneficial to both you and your dog.
