FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are there any prerequisites for attending the course?
The course is open for everybody over the age of 18, regardless of their level of experience with dogs.
Is this suitable for puppies?

Yes and no. Most of the games can be played with puppies but some tricks and fitness exercises require physical strength. The lessons are built upon each other and the knowledge base is constantly growing, there are new and exciting tasks added every two weeks which would be too much for a puppy. They are unable (and they do not even have to) concentrate so long. So I recommend not to take this course, if you have a puppy. It’s suitable for dogs older than 10 months.

Is my dog too old to be trained?

Definitely not! It may take a little longer, need more patience but it’s possible to teach senior huskies. Moreover, mental stimulation will benefit them.

Is this course suitable for all breeds?

Even though this course has been developed specifically for siberian huskies, it is suitable for any breeds, of course, and each one will benefit from it. Most huskies don’t like repetitive tasks as they get bored. This course has been created step by step to build up the dog’s confidence and enthusiasm in training.

Can a siberian husky really be trained?
Absolutely! All dogs are capable of being trained. With the proper methods & tools and the owner’s dedication, all siberians are able to learn anything what other breeds can do/know.
I’ve used traditional training methods with my dog. Why should I switch to positive reinforcement?

You have two choices to create and change behaviours: punishment or rewards. It’s up to you which one you choose. Positive reinforcement training does not contain any aversive element! Punishment ruins the relationship with your siberian, increases stress and decreases your dog’s welfare. Beside these, punishment does not tell the dog what to do, what would have been the desired behaviour. Punishment can’t build behaviour, it can only suppress it. Everything you want to teach your dog can be communicated in the form of a game.

Shouldn't my siberian listen to me because he loves me?

🙂 Huskies are not eager to please you by their natural temperament. It’s genetics. They were bred to be working dogs who pull the sled for long miles. It was not necessary to have such a tight connection between the musher and 1-1 dog like between shepherds and their herding breed dogs. I am sure your husky loves you but dogs do what is reinforcing for them. You have to show and teach your dog that listening to you is just as much fun as chasing a squirrel.

What happens if I have more than 1 dog?
You will be even busier 🙂 The knowledge you acquire here will be your asset and you will be able to use it with every dog you own. And there are no additional fees for the second dog.
Does this course fix siberian huskies with aggression, fear, or anxiety issues?
This is not a dog rehabilitation program. It is not designed to resolve a dog’s issues during the course, although we’re certain it won’t make it any worse. In such case, training could be used to help to establish a stronger, healthier and more trustful connection between you. The worst can happen is that you will have a greater bond with your siberian. In order to resolve the earlier mentioned behaviour issues, ask for professional help near you.

What are the advantages of learning online instead of being at a dog school?

The main advantage is that there is only a small amount of distraction or none at all. Your husky can focus on you and the task without these major distractions. This way of training sets up the dog for success and by that he gains more self and will enjoy learning far more. The moment your dog succeeds in a distraction-free environment you can move to an area with mild distractions and so on. It is also a benefit that you can learn at your own pace, anytime when your schedule allows it and you can check out and read each tasks until you fully grasp them.

Will I get one-on-one coaching or feedback?

It’s possible to get private coaching. If you want to post your own training videos and receive individual feedback, join us through our Premium Mastermind Package.

What happens after the the course is over?
The course includes so many games and exercises that you will even have tasks after it is over 🙂 All behaviour is either eroding or growing so keep practicing. During the 6 months period hopefully you experienced the benefits of the slight lifestyle change so this can’t be a problem.
