You will learn how to train dogs to do a variety of important life saving behaviors that all dogs should know and practice (Stay, Come when called, Leash Walking, Impulse Control and more) as well as safety behaviors (wearing a muzzle, cone of shame, taking medications and so much more).

Pamela will take you through a variety of ways to condition your dog to accept wearing a cone and a muzzle, enjoy being handled and even massaged. She explains why it is important to train dogs to enjoy these things and not wait until an emergency happens when the dog is scared and worried because all of a sudden he has to wear a muzzle or a cone.

Do you or your clients have a difficult time getting dogs to take medication? This DVD will go over a few non-traditional ways on how to get your dog to take and enjoy taking his medication, without any struggle. Finally giving your dog medication will be easy and stress free for you and your dog.

Does your dog hate to have his nails trimmed? Are you worried that you will clip them too short and cause your dog pain? Pamela goes over a few ways to clip/file your dogs nails and how to find a method that works for you.

You will also learn what you will need if an emergency or disaster strikes, such as first aid kits and what to put in them, handouts that could help you relocate your dog if he were to go missing and other valuable ideas on how to be prepared for anything. Accidents, emergencies and disasters happen when you least expect it. Are you prepared? Do you know what you would do? Do you have a plan?

This DVD will help you get your dog and your family prepared with plan and know what to do when faced with an emergency, disaster or accident.

This DVD goes over the in’s and out’s of training back chains and discusses a few non- traditional back chaining concepts. You will learn what back chains are and why you should use back chaining.

If you have tried to learn how to back chain in the past, but felt it was too confusing, then you will love this DVD. The goal is to teach you how to train using back chains in a simple understandable way. If you have been training back chains for years and would like a new perspective with new ideas on how to train back chains then this DVD would benefit you as well.

You will learn important concepts such as: Verbal/Visual Cues, Stimulus Control, Variable Reinforcement Schedules, Rewarding in Position, Repetition, Adding Criteria, Fluency, Premack Principle, Anticipation, Using Extra Cues, Fading Cues, Proofing, Systematic Learning and Conditioned Reinforcers. Knowing and understanding these concepts will help you be successful when training and building back chains.

The behaviors taught in this DVD range from tricks (clean up your toys, go to the crate and close the crate door, and much more), dog sports (canine freestyle routines, disc dogging routines, flyball, agility contacts, weave poles, rally and more), to real world behaviors (no jumping on people, going inside the house, getting in the car, etc) with step by step instruction on the process to back chaining each one. You will find training back chains to be easy and fun with Pamela Johnson’s DVD.

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!

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.
