“Wait… you’re a Professional Dog Trainer and you have free resources listed on your website?”

Yes, yes I do. Because I wasn’t always a dog trainer, and I’ve been a dog owner/guardian for a couple of decades. I really wish that I had known then what I know now, but there was no way I could afford the prices of professional trainers. So, instead, I watched shows about dog training and did what they did. Now that I know better, I can do better.

It wasn’t an easy decision on what price tag to put on helping people live happy lives with their happy dogs. I really want to help all dogs be happy with their humans.
I charge what I charge because my time, education, and training is valuable

But, because I’ve been there, I know that there are people who have dogs that love and adore them. People who want what’s best for their whole dog, physically, mentally and emotionally, and are willing to put the work in, but just absolutely can not afford a professional price.

So if this is you, this section is for you. I am not a content creator (if you follow me on Facebook, you’ll see my non-content creator reels), so all I can do is find the best of the best and share those with you, so you don’t have to weed through the Cesar Millan’s of the internet.

Websites

Happy Dog Coach has compiled a list of recommended websites that offer some free training resources:

YouTube

YouTube is an amazing resource for learning the ins and outs of many subjects, and dog training is one of them. There is so much conflicting information out there, so it’s difficult to weed through and know what is best for you and your dog. Your Happy Dog Coach has collected some of our favorite, science-based trainer channels here for easy convenience.
