House Training Dogs

 Reviewed 16 April 2020 share-a-picture Or go to discussion?join-the-discussion dogphoto

House Training Dogs is so much more than just housebreaking, potty training, toilet training!

Yet most dog trainers - and so understandably dog owners too - start and stop with housebreaking.

And since that alone doesn't ensure a well-behaving dog when left alone with free run of the house... they then have to lock the dog in a kennel (=locked crate). cry

All ONLY because the dog has not learned to behave well in the house!

Why get a dog and then lock the dog away?


So, let's ensure here that YOUR dog can be safely left FREE while alone, like my new puppy and every dog before him.


Because: Who's gonna guard your house and every corner of the property and the family if the dog is locked away safely? doh!

Hence why in the most remarkable year 2014 "the best author Tim Carter went out of your way and published what is often called a book with the ingenious title House Training Dogs To Behave Well In A High Value Home."

You too enjoy humor, right? mrgreen

And surprise, surprise, even if you call your house a shack, this book is right on: because a German Shepherd upgrades every shack to a high value home anyway. kiss-me

With House Training Dogs To Behave Well In A High Value Home now you too can give your dog free run of the house, even while you are away!

And your dog will keep everything as shack-like as you left it.

Or as luxurious as you left it, indeed!

Now for the penny pinchers mrgreen in brief: What does House Training Dogs have to comprise, such that your dog is safe, considerate, and clean in the house?

As a minimum:

Now ask yourself: Can you, or the BEST professional dog trainer achieve all this with Obedience Training?

Stupid question, I know. Of course NOT, NO!

Try leaving an obedience-trained dog alone at home with free run of the house! lol

Not only a German Shepherd, every dog knows very well that when you have left, there's no one that the dog needs to obey.

So guess what happens?

Not always, mind you, but sometimes.

And already once is enough: One destroyed house, and you'll say: "Phew, I was nuts to leave the dog alone at home with free run of the house - without specific training!"

This is why for all the above topics of House Training Dogs we will make use of Behavior Training, not Obedience Training.
