Performance Puppy Tips: Part 1 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 2 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 3 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 4 (8 Weeks)

Performance Puppy Tips: Part 5 (8 Weeks)

In this group, I will share puppy performance training tips (videos, concepts, discussions, photos of my puppy plans and photos of my puppy) as I work with my new puppy. When something important comes up and I feel that others should know about it, then I will share the tip here on this page only.

The tips in this program will be specific for puppies. However, all of my training methods, games and training in general can be used with a puppy or dog.

Anyone building a working relationship with their dog for a specific dog sport will benefit from being a part of this group. I am calling it “Performance Puppy Tips”, because you will see me work with my new puppy as well as discuss important topics that come up as I train/work with my puppy.  You will also see how I work with and incorporate my other dogs into the training process along side my new puppy.

Members will be able to ask me questions and engage in discussions that pertain to specific posts. However, I will not answer training questions! If you have a training questions/issue and would like help solving it, I offer “One on One Online Training Classes”.  2 weeks for $40 and I will help you with your training needs through video and written plans. www.pamsdogtraining.com Pam’s Dog Academy also offers Online Classes:  Clicker Training Basics, Loose Leash Walking, Rock Solid Stay, Play-N-Train Recalls and Insider Secrets to Canine Freestyle. If you are a CPDT, you can earn CEU’s when you take my online classes.

This group is for ANYONE: Trainers, pet dog owners, those preparing for competition and those that just want to have fun and build a better relationship with their dog!

If your goal is to compete or simply just to have fun with your dog, the most important thing you can do is build a strong positive relationship with your dog.  A relationship that is built on trust and cooperation.  Once you have a great working partner/relationship with your dog, the sky is the limit as to what you both can accomplish.

I look forward to sharing my insight and ultimately helping you train your performance puppy or dog through throughout this program.

A few categories that I will be working on with my puppy:
Socialization
Handling
Focus Building
Learning Methods
Trick/Behaviors Training
Sport Foundation Training
Safety Behaviors
Recall Games
Building Calmness
Proofing Behaviors

All training methods are force free, positive and without punishment/intimidation!

Introduction
Pamela Johnson owner of Pam’s Dog Academy is a dog trainer and educator with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology and a M.A in Education Curriculum Development. As a full time middle school PE teacher, Pamela feels that many of the skills she uses to teach children transfer nicely to training dogs.

Her passion is using FORCE FREE training methods for behavior modification, as well as training complex behaviors and tricks.

She thrives on the challenge of coming up with creative new ways to train dogs.

Pamela believes that every dog she works with teaches her more about training, patience and, most importantly, to be a better person.

Pamela traveled to Vancouver with Emily Larlham to team-teach a Canine Freestyle seminar, and has taught multiple dog training seminars in North America.

She is known around the world for her training videos on her Youtube channel “pamelamarxsen.” Here she posts free tutorial videos in order that more people may discover the magic of progressive reinforcement training!

Her business Pam’s Dog Training Academy is based in San Diego, California. She is a CPDT-KA, a professional member of the APDT as well as the PPG.
What We Need & What You Get

Pam’s Dog Academy has a new training facility that is in need of a grass field. We currently have a horse riding arena that is dirt and will be the perfect place to host seminars, have group classes and dog sports camps. However, it is not going to be cheap.

We will need $6000 for sprinkler systems, drainage and grass.
I am offering many perks to reward you for your generous donation to this project! ebooks, DVDs, Online Classes and One on One Coaching.
If we are not able to raise the entire $6000, we plan on saving the money and putting it in a special account that will be specifically for the grass field. If enough is raised for us to get the project started, we will proceed in phases.
If you would like something other than the perk offered, please feel free to email me and I will see what I can do.
The Impact

This project will not only impact those that are able to travel to group/private classes, dog camp or seminars, but I will be able to produce an unlimited amount of FREE YouTube “How to” Clicker Dog Training videos. These videos will range from dog sports, tricks, behavior modification and so much more.

You can view some of my YouTube videos at www.YouTube.com/pamelamarxsen
Pam has been helping people train their dogs with FREE advice through email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and over the telephone. This will not stop because Pam believes in helping as many dogs and their humans as possible.

Pam’s Dog Academy DVD & Ebook Reviews

Share

Here are what my Satisfied Customers are saying about my DVDs & Ebooks:

  • Play-N-Train Recalls, Rock Solid Stay, and Loose Leash Walking made easy.  Fun exercises, No force, No punishment and easy to follow instructions.
  • Loose Leash Walking Made Easy by Pam’s dog Academy, If I was to rate this from 1 to 10; I would give this a 10.  Loose Leash Walking can be a daunting task to say the least. This Video DVD breaks that task down step by step and much more.  It’s is easy to follow and Pam trouble shoots each step so you won’t get over whelmed. I have been training dogs a long time and this wonderful video inspired me to do a Loose Leash Walking only class using these wonderful positive clicker training techniques. Way to go Pam. I look forward to seeing your future DVD’s too.  –  Mary Blanton  www.2dogtrail.com
  • I can’t wait for the “Stay” DVD to come out! I received “Play-n-train Recalls” for Christmas and I am really enjoying it.
  • Love the LLW DVD’s THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
  • I always struggle to teach people how to train LLW.  They seem to want the dog to just not pull right away without working on it.  This gives me a lot of foundation behaviors to work on before even starting them walking.  Very helpful!   –  Heather
  • Very easy to understand and picked up some new tricks for recalls!!
  • The games are so much fun – we love it !! How about a trick DVD next? I’ll buy it for sure!
  • Hello Pam, i just wanted to tell you what a great job you have done with the LLW DVD.  Emily Larlham mentioned them on her FB page so i bought the set and wanted to let you know how well you did.  I am putting together a six week LLW clinic and these will be an invaluable teaching aid and have given me some new Ideas.  i will credit you with some of the techniques we use in our class.  Thanks again for a well done DVD…
  • You are truly generous with your information and my clients benefit from it frequently. Looking forward to more videos and DVDs!
  • Very easy to understand!!
  • The games are so much fun – we love it !!
  • Hi Pam! I got the DVDs yesterday and they all are working fine. Thank you for making these DVD that goes over everything in detail. I tried the egg on a spoon LLW challenge and it was pretty fun and my dog did really good in one go. 🙂 Thank you once again 😀
