My wife LOVES Harry Potter.
The books, the movies, she knows the names, places and personalities of everyone and everything in the books.
Me, I like the movies but I’ve always been much more interested in the author, J.K. Rowling.
I think it is fascinating how she came up with the story on a train ride from Manchester to London and went on to become the first BA-BA-BA-Billionaire author.
What many people don’t know is that she had come up with the ending of her story before she ever started writing. In fact, she even wrote the last chapter of her Harry Potter series over 15 years ago. That way, she would know how the series ends and be able to tie everything together.
AND THAT, my dog loving friend, is THE BIG SECRET to training your dog.
Here’s the deal.
When I am faced with a dog that is jumping, pulling, chewing, barking, and going in the other direction when I call, “Come,” I always think about what the dog is going to be like when I am done training.
If I stay focused on how the dog is behaving that day I may give up and that is NOT fair to the dog.
Get a clear picture of what you want your dog to do. Put together a plan to get your dog to do the commands you want and to stop the behaviors that are annoying you.
Put that plan into action and you are well on your way to having the dog you’ve always dreamed of.
And you know what?
One of the best (and easiest) plans to put into action is The Ultimate Online Dog Training Course.
Videos show you exactly what to do and what your dog will learn and has helped many, many dog owners.

Do you know how many dog bite cases are reported every year?
The number may shock you…
…since dogs are considered our best friends.
4.5 million reported dog bites every year. I would imagine that another 4 to 5 million dog bites go unreported.
Why is there such a large number of dog bites?
I have a theory.
One of the biggest culprits contributing to aggressive dog behavior is probably going to surprise you.
You see, one of the main reasons we have so many dog bites can be directly linked to:
Many of the techniques and methods that dog trainers teach can lead directly to aggressive behavior.
A dog that is smacked for normal puppy biting, rolled over “Alpha” style when they pee on the carpet, taught to walk on leash with a choke collar, whacked with a rolled up newspaper when they steal something off the table will eventually result in a dog that may develop aggressive behavior.
Training is done using consequences – positive and negative.
Negative consequences have to be minimal and NOT associated with the owner.
Too many negative consequences and the relationship will break down and the dog may develop an aggression problem.
It makes me sad to see so many negative training methods being taught because the dog is ultimately the one who ends up paying in the end, sometimes with his life.
BUT the good news is you can avoid this problem using the right training.
It’s loaded with step by step instructions, videos, articles, dog training courses AND a forum where I help you personally.

Okay, she wasn’t completely naked.
Her shirt was off. I don’t know how it happened, I didn’t want to know.
And she was face down stinking drunk and I had to figure out what I was going to do…
Way back when I first started my little dog training business, I took a job as an animal control officer for the city of Fall River, nights and weekends.
One of my very first calls came around 2:00AM on a Saturday morning.
This lady had gone out and got drunk and came home to let her dog out. She made it as far as the front hallway that everyone in the building used. She passed out and her dog, a big mean Rottweiler, was roaming the halls growling at anyone that came in the building.
Using my knowledge of dogs and cat like reflexes, I had the dog in the back of my van within ten minutes.
The drunk women started to come to and was outraged with me and demanded her dog back.
I learned long ago to never argue with a drunk person and drove away.
As I drove away I realized how much responsibility having a dog is.
How we have to be responsible for our dogs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This lady would get her dog back, but not until she sobered up and was able to be responsible.
I heard when she came back she was irate and screaming at everyone.
I’ve dealt with a lot of people like her and they all have an excuse for their dog’s bad behavior (and other problems).
It’s not my fault my dog jumps and knocks people over.
It’s not my fault my dog growls and snaps at people.
It’s not my fault my dog pooped on your carpet.
A dog needs to have good nutrition, medical care, exercise, their social needs met and training.
I won’t beat around the bush, it can be a little bit overwhelming for a new dog owner.
That’s where The Dog Training Inner Circle comes in.
It’s kinda like a personal dog training coach to help you.
Over 90 videos, articles, step by step instructions AND the forum where I personally answer your questions.

SO here we are in New England waiting for two feet of snow to dump on us.
The bread and milk are flying off the shelves all over New England which I never really understood.
Anyway, a common saying is to “Batten down the hatches” which means to prepare for trouble.
There are a lot of ways your dog can get into trouble.
They can get loose and run away, your dog could steal chocolate off the counter and get sick. Your dog may jump on an elderly person and injure them or make a massive mess on your carpet.
So there is a one word solution to “Batten down the hatches” with your dog.
You can avoid a LOT of trouble once your dog is trained.
And training all comes down to consequences. Applying positive and negative consequences.
You tie consequences with timing and you and your dog are off to the races. You’ll be able to teach your dog to do just about anything.
You’ll be able to weather storms bigger than two feet of snow dumped in your backyard.
And a good place to get started is with The Mother Of All Offers.
AND 7 Bonus Gifts:

So head on over there NOW:
And if you are in the heart of the storm’s path please keep safe. It should all be over by Sunday.

My daughter is here, the Super Bowl is over, now it’s time to get back to helping you train your dog.
Before I go on, I would once more like to thank everyone that sent their congratulations and best wishes. It amazes me that people from all over the world are sending us kind words and thoughts on this very special occasion.
Okay, last night was one of the biggest events that happens every year here in the United States.
The Super Bowl.
Even people that don’t like football watch it for the commercials. The TV commercials have become almost as big as the game.
Personally, I felt they were a little weak this year, but I did like one of the Budweiser commercials.
It showed a Clydesdale horse being raised by a man. The horse then becomes one of the horses for the Budweiser wagon. The horse and man are reunited at a parade one day years later.
It’s a very nice commercial, but there is one word that I always think of when I see animals in commercials.
A fancy word that simply means that we think our dogs are humans. I truly believe that dogs are the best because they have so many human characteristics.
Dogs are the best at expressing emotions. You know when your dog is happy, scared, angry or nervous.
But we have to careful about when we think that they think like us.
I was recently talking to a friend who just adopted a dog with some problems. He kept telling me that, “His dog should know better.”
He was making the mistake of thinking that his dog thinks like a human. As long as he keeps thinking that his dog “should know better,” the longer it will take and the more frustration he is going have.
Once he stopped thinking of his dog on human terms and started thinking on dog terms he became much more successful.
And that’s where The Mother Of All Offers comes in.
Last week I was offering this incredible special and have extended it because I was so busy last week and did not have time to let all of you know about it.
It includes three popular dog training courses AND seven bonuses which you get when you go here NOW:
All the best,
