Behavior problems are one of the big barriers to rescue dogs finding a forever home so we want to give them their best shot at a second chance in life, too.
Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) July 16, 2014
Even in a world where most expect to do almost everything online, training dogs that way may sound like a mouse click too far. But Minneapolis dog training company, DogSense Online, are close to launching a new product that aims to completely reinvent how we train our best friends.
Their simple three step online program will bring the most effective, up-to-date dog training techniques into every dog lover’s home via computer, tablet or even mobile phone. The irritating behaviors that most dog owners simply live with – like barking, jumping up and refusing to come when called - could soon become a thing of the past.
The program uses smart videography and captioning to help dog lovers:
- Understand how dogs view the world so they can get their dog’s attention and really motivate them to learn
- Communicate in the way any dog can ‘get’
- Teach their dog the behavior they need for everyday life and see it work everywhere – not just in a class or formal training session
The DogSense Online program is close to completion and now the team behind the revolutionary new approach have launched a Kickstarter project to fund the final stages to release the program globally.
Jody Karow, founder of DogSense Online said: “ The way we live and the way we learn has changed out of all recognition over the past 10 years, thanks to technology. But the world of dog training has changed very little. 44% of Americans have dogs, but fewer than 10% go to classes or ever consult a trainer. We want to put the very best modern training within the reach of every dog lover, wherever they are. It will make our relationship with our dogs richer, less frustrating and even more full of joy.”
As part of their Kickstarter project, DogSense Online are offering dog lovers who get in at the start the chance to buy a program subscription at better than half price or gift a program to a dog rescue of their choice.
Said Jody: “Behavior problems are one of the big barriers to rescue dogs finding a forever home so we want to give them their best shot at a second chance in life, too.”
