The Online Dog Trainer In-Depth Review
Overview: Best Product, Best Value for money:
Before I get into the details of this review I have to say at the start that this product is simply THE BEST dog and puppy training program online. Period. Quite frankly I am blown away at what’s being offered here and at the cost it’s no wonder that this site is getting such rave reviews. The Online Dog Trainer, by well respected dog trainer Doggy Dan, is by far the fastest growing dog training solution available. Let me explain some of the things that makes this product so good and absolutely unique.
Firstly. Never before have I come across a dog training product where the national SPCA organization (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) actually endorses it. The Online Dog Trainer has exactly that, the stamp of approval from the Royal New Zealand SPCA. They actively promote it at all their rescue shelters because they know that new rescue dog owners who follow Doggy Dan’s training, are far less likely to return the dog. In fact they even have a link to it on their home page. That in itself speaks volumes.
Every topic covered with over 250 videos
Now before we get into things let me explain briefly what’s inside the site. Currently there are over 250 videos alone covering off everything from becoming the pack leader to training a puppy to allow you to take a bone to calming a dog down in the car. In other words everything you can imagine is covered. However its not just the volume of videos but the quality of the training content.
Videos of real consultations
Something that you will love about this site is that when you are watching the videos you are actually watching Doggy Dan during live consultations. You’re not watching some staged mock up or reading another e-book! Sure there are some videos where he is talking you through the theory but when it comes to troubled dogs this guy is actually there working with them and delivering results. This is the real deal, a phenomenal dog trainer and dog behaviorist in action with seriously difficult dogs, and you can see him as he gets the results. Proof that the method works.
Video is the answer
But what’s more is that you can see how he does it. What becomes clear is that Doggy Dan has an amazing skill of sharing his knowledge and that’s what he does. His passion to help really comes across, and you get to understand not just the concept but also the practical approach. He explains everything in a way that means you get it, in a language that helps you connect with your dog. And you begin to actually see things from their eyes – and that’s why his approach works. He is working with the dogs, not against them.
Gentle method and techniques
The method itself is simply fantastic. As you’d expect with the endorsement from the SPCA there is no fear or aggression used. Yet the dogs respond so quickly, and even sometimes immediately. Of course the great thing is that you can see it all happening – how he uses his voice, his body language and the dog’s reactions. There are no secrets, nothing hidden, nothing held back and the method all makes so much sense. If you are after a simple but powerful approach to developing an amazing relationship with your new dog or puppy, or you want to stop any unwanted behaviors then this site gives you just that. And more…
One of the latest and most exciting additions to the site is Project Moses. For anyone who has a puppy, this is perfect for you. In this part of the site Doggy Dan has taken a tiny new puppy named Moses and videoed every stage of his training from 8 weeks old right through to 1 year old, and those videos are all going into the site. It really is stunning footage as you see the pup learning all the commands, and growing into quite an amazing dog. This project in itself is just a superb concept and worthy of being a product he could charge for all on its own. But it’s all included. So for people wanting to train a puppy… there is nothing to compare this to. Nothing.
When you join The Online Dog Trainer, one of the free bonuses is a Forum. The questions asked in the Forum are currently all being answered by Doggy Dan’s himself, and it’s always been this way as far as I can tell. This is quite different from many forums where users are simply left to chat amongst themselves to guess the next step or a third person is employed to answer questions. Inside The Online Dog Trainer Doggy Dan is there to help, which is a huge bonus if you want specific professional advice for your situation.
Something that becomes apparent watching Doggy Dan is his knowledge, and passion to help make a difference to the lives of dog owners. He comes across as a genuine guy as well as being a great dog trainer, behaviorist, author and speaker. His relaxed and competent nature on camera combined with the masses of knowledge and video footage he has to share, makes for some very educational and entertaining viewing.
Dog Behavioral issues
The last but possibly the most impressive thing about this site is Doggy Dan’s ability to help people understand the real cause of their dog’s issues. No matter what the problem you have he covers it off in his videos, but he also makes sure that your dog and you end up with a stronger relationship. His 5 Golden Rules inside the pack leader section are worth their weight in gold alone. Something every dog owners should be taught the day they get their dog. With Doggy Dan no dog is too old, or too stubborn, they can all be helped when they are first properly understood, and his site The Online Dog Trainer is the site to help you do just that.
Here’s a list of some of just some of the videos that address specific dog problems:
• Dog Aggression
• People Aggression
• Aggression Towards Animals
• Aggression Towards Objects
• Barking On The Walk
• Barking For Attention
• Barking Around The Property
• Barking In The Car
• Barking When Left
• Barking At The Door
• Dogs Running Away
• Separation Anxiety
• Jumping Up
• Jumping on Furniture
• Pulling On The Leash
• Not Coming When Called
• Fears and Phobias
Another excellent feature is the use of audio files for people who like to go into real depth with topics. Doggy Dan has created several files that you can simply listen to and have playing as you do other things. New audios are being added and the quality of these is again exceptional covering off topics such as toilet training through to how to be the pack leader. Each audio is approximately half an hour long, providing users with valuable understanding of not just what to do but how and why it all fits together.
Having a look around I immediately understood that I had some work to do – there’s no silver bullet to solve my dog’s issues. I have to watch the videos and learn, put the learning into practice, keep watching to make sure I’m doing it correctly, and once I get past the fist couple of steps, spend the time to get onto the next phases of the training. So I now know what I’m in for, and it’s going to take a month or so to get on top of it.
And to get this all for a fraction of the cost of a dog trainer coming to my home is a real no brainer.
As expected the testimonial about The Online Dog Trainer are of a real joy to read. The big difference between these live comments that are continually being posted up by people and other sites is that there is nothing fake about them. They are done using a 3rd party Facebook application interface. This means that nobody only the person posting the comment has any access to the…they are all 100% genuine. This removes any suspicion that were all gathered a long time ago by dubious methods and then altered till they sounded good! These are totally real comments, from real people who simply love The Online Dog Trainer and Doggy Dan’s method. Its another refreshing change.
What It Costs
Once you’ve decided to stay on after the 3 day trial, you pay $37 per month. Compared to few other online solutions, it does seem to be more dear… but it’s just like that old saying ‘You get what you pay for’… there’s no doubt that $37 a month is worth every cent. Let’s face it, those other products out there don’t really work, or only work for a very specific problem, like toilet training. With The Online Dog Trainer you get everything, especially the pack leader understanding which solves virtually all dog behavioral problems.
Plus I did my homework and discovered that having a real dog trainer for a house visit costs on average $400. And that only covers a few hours. With The Online Dog Trainer, you get Doggy Dan with his proven method that works in your home whenever you need him.
Money back guarantee
You have nothing to lose… The Online Dog Trainer offers a 60 day money back guarantee providing complete confidence in your purchase.

My advice is obviously… GO FOR IT!
