A dog who wants to learn with you, play with you and ultimately
listen to you because YOU
I’ve been there....when I got my first lovely rescue dog he was a superstar in the quiet of my flat with a treat in
my hand. Take him outside or add ANY level of distraction, however, and he was either an excitable or an anxious mess (dependent on the situation!).
I felt frustrated with him, frustrated with myself and also embarrassed that I apparently couldn’t manage my dog.
I gave him affection, toys and “training” by the shed load but wasn’t really getting anywhere.
That strong bond was missing.
Focusing on our relationship through these simple bond building games turned everything around for us
and now he’s my demo dog and a little superstar!
Having that strong bond helps with your dog’s focus, their recall, their loose lead walking, their destructive
behaviours and many, many other common struggles.
The bond-building e-book has been
brilliant! I wanted to increase the bond I have with my cocker spaniel and couldn’t believe how much stronger this was after only a week. We especially liked the “follow” command. Since we have been using this and rewarding for good behaviours, I have noticed a change in my dog’s behaviour in the park. Now she likes to be closer to me as opposed to myself constantly trying to encourage her to come to me while she’s taking her time sniffing around on the grass.

I’m so glad we’ve found this e-book. Fly-dog is a bit nervous in unfamiliar situations sometimes and the games we’ve been doing as part of the challenge have really increased her confidence. I feel like we have some good things in our toolkit now to tackle some situations that we would have kept our distance from previously. Would recommend for all doggies, we’ll certainly be carrying on with the games even though the week is over!

Charlie is our beautiful rescue dog. He’s an amazing boy but has a tendency not to listen in some situations! After completing the bond building challenge we can already see a change in him. He constantly checks in with us on a walk and using the shaping training method he is picking things up much more quickly than before. I would recommend the bond building challenge to anyone struggling with their relationship with the dog…and even those who aren’t….it’s just great fun!
