When you first brought your dog home, you were thinking he'd be the perfect addition to your family. You thought he'd be your new “best friend,” go everywhere with you, and provide hours of entertainment with relaxing walks and playtime.

But things haven't turned out that way.

  • Walking your dog is stressful. You’re always worried about him pulling away from you, barking at another dog, or chasing squirrels.
  • You’re embarrassed. Every time your friends come over your dog jumps on them (muddy paws and all).
  • Non-stop barking. Your dog barks and barks and barks. It’s making you crazy, like nails on a chalkboard.

Imagine having a well-behaved dog that makes you proud. Your dog could be by your side every day, a constant companion. Your relationship with your dog is the key to a better-behaved dog. When your dog respects you and has a good attitude, training is simple. Confidently taking charge of a situation makes things easier for your dog, decreases your stress, and opens doors to peace of mind in your home.

Where is this class held?

This is a live, online class led by a leading expert in the animal training industry. Like an in-person class, it is fully interactive and engaging. The difference between an online class and an onsite class? No travel and less distractions for your dog. You can participate from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. Many of our students choose to have their dog with them during class. Where applicable, students can speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants throughout the course as they work in real time on activities.

  • Respectful
  • Calmer
  • Focused
  • Better Behaved

Lessons covered during this 2-hour Class

Basic applications of positive reinforcement

Most people use positive reinforcement to train their dog. What most people don’t realize is they are using positive reinforcement incorrectly. Almost everyone, including many dog trainers, make some very common mistakes in their application of positive reinforcement. You’ll not only learn how to use positive reinforcement correctly, but the mistakes people make when they use positive reinforcement. Once you learn this information, you’ll see your dog’s behavior change for the better.

Leadership exercise

People say all the time: “my dog doesn’t listen to me.” In most cases, the dog knows what you want him to do, but he won’t do it. Why? He doesn’t respect you. You have not created an underlying motivation for him to listen, and, to be blunt, you are simply not relevant enough to him. You’ll learn a simple, but effective, exercise to help create the respect that is needed for your dog to listen to you.

Calming exercise

When I go out with my dogs, people often tell me that their dog could never be this calm in public. Yes he can! After you practice my calming exercise, your dog will be able to calm himself down. Once your dog is calm and relaxed, you can teach him to do almost anything. This exercise has saved dog’s lives by teaching them to calm down and be more manageable.

Leash management exercise

Learn what I do to help my dogs be more focused on me. In as few as five minutes, I can transform a dog who has been pulling and barking while on a leash for months (or years) and teach him to walk calmly by my side with a constant awareness of where I am and what I am doing.

 Kim Greco, COTP, is the owner of Paws and Possibilities and creator of the online dog training program Manners Matter.

Growing up in Northern Virginia, riding and showing horses were a big part of Kim’s life. She was ranked third in the country while showing her horse, Harbor Bay, in the Small Junior Hunter Division. One of the highlights was competing in The National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in NYC.

After graduating from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a concentration in Psychology, Kim began her professional career as a marine mammal trainer. Kim trained Atlantic bottlenose dolphins, California sea lions, harbor, grey, and harp seals, African penguins, and exotic birds. Spending most of her marine mammal training career at the National Aquarium in Baltimore as a Senior Trainer, Kim helped to teach new trainers how to train the dolphins.

Kim’s calm, confident demeanor make her interactions with animals remarkable to learn from. In addition to working well with animals, Kim has a natural gift to relate well with people and can simplify complex ideas and present them in ways that enable people of all skill levels to understand and retain them. These qualities have led to a successful career working with dogs. Kim is a professional member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP).

Through Kim’s unique training system, you create the relationship with your dog you've always dreamed about—all while making it feel like a walk in the park.

Kim enjoys spending time with her family—husband, two children, three step-children, and two dogs. When she’s not teaching your dog good manners, you can find her hot on the salsa dance floor or reminiscing about how fun it was to train dolphins.

Really liked Kevin's style. Am looking at different approaches to online training (I do this stuff), and Kevin is about as effective as I've come across. Will likely use some of his ideas.
