==> BEST dog training approach revealed:

Haptic and Audiovisual Dog Training

Dog Training Made SUPER-EASY!

Recently I encountered what has become our favourite dog training recommendation.

But before I share this with you let me first explain different training approaches altogether because the secret to the BEST DOG TRAINING lies right HERE!

You know, normally dog owners buy books and/or watch youtube videos to learn how to teach their dog the behavior they desire. All of these are more or less suitable for dog training in general and German Shepherd training in particular.

However, although all of this has its justification, often we are not happy with our own or our dog's training success, either content-wise or time-wise, mostly both. And right so, because we expect that when we BUY dog training, this will actually change our dog's behavior the way we desire - and fast.

What was lacking yet

There hasn't really been a resource that gives dog owners their own personal dog trainer - I mean as much as this is possible without the real thing, ie without booking and paying a dog trainer!

Also, there hasn't been a resource that allows us to copy HOW the trainer would HANDLE SPECIFIC ISSUES, rather than giving us basic to advanced dog training tips.

Different Training Approaches and their Outcome

*The least effective training is AUDIO Training (audio only). For this very reason there is the saying: "This goes in at one ear and out at the other". Humans and animals alike don't LISTEN very well (although dogs HEAR very well).

*Better, but still not great, is VISUAL Training (visual only). An indicative saying is: "What you see is what you get" (what you understand). Indeed this existed long before the computer-adaptation "What you see is what will be reproduced".

*Even better, but not yet most effective, is AUDIOVISUAL Training (narrated visual training), because it combines TWO senses: What we HEAR AND SEE.

*Almost the best training is where we WRITE DOWN CATCHWORDS of the training content we heard and/or saw EARLIER. Because now our brain has to RECALL the training content (as opposed to RECOGNIZE it in a given list) and our fingers perform physical movement to write it down.

*However, the MOST EFFECTIVE TRAINING of any kind (not just dog training but our personal training too) is HAPTIC Training. Haptic means that we can TOUCH training-related content and FEEL it. Another word for this is TACTILE. With haptic or tactile training we are always PHYSICALLY INVOLVED in the training content.

There also is a difference between UNDERSTANDING and REMEMBERING training content, but this would stray too far away from the purpose of this Periodical.

BEST Dog Training

The most effective dog training is HAPTIC Training (see above). Meaning, a dog trainer walks our German Shepherd AND US, and shows us LIVE - HOW - he trains OUR OWN DOG.

Note that WE HOLD the leash, WE PAT, and WE PRAISE our dog. We PHYSICALLY walk our dog - while the dog trainer is with us, every step of the way.

Needless to say, most of us don't have access to a personal dog trainer in our neighborhood, and even if there is one, we can't AFFORD to pay him everytime and all the time!

So, what's the second best thing to sliced bread?

The bread!


This means, we SEE AND HEAR the professional dog trainer HOW he trains another real dog. COMPLETE and LIVE in a VIDEO, not in a post-production narrated slide show (which seems to always leave out exactly the bits and pieces that we seek to find out...).

After watching the VIDEO (as often as we like!) we can even RECALL the training content and write down catchwords if we want (this would further improve the training, see above).

However, the best bit now comes if we immediately take our German Shepherd and APPLY what we just saw and heard in the VIDEO: We COPY the dog trainer's behavior and voice, while we TOUCH and FEEL our own dog and/or the leash, and while we SEE and HEAR our own dog's response.

This ensures what is called the transfer of learning. We are able to APPLY what we learned, and it yields the outcome we expect!

WAIT, we can even get one more step closer to the real thing, the PAID professional dog trainer:

If we have a smart phone or an i-Pad or other tablet computer, we can take it with us (even outside) and - with our own GSD next to us - we can WATCH and HEAR what the dog trainer is doing, and we immediately COPY it!

We can even "ask our own professional dog trainer" to show us the SAME thing again and again: We simply click 'Play', while we are with our own dog!

We can even modulate his voice and imitate volume, intonation, tone etc - because we know that often a small nuance can make the difference between failure and training success.

We can even EXACTLY IMITATE the smallest gesture, as well as how we stand with our feet, our body posture, our facial expression,... EVERYTHING! Because we know that it is our body language that tells our dog most of what we want our dog to do!

This is the BEST Dog Training

Because it's MOST effective

This is Dog Training Made SUPER-EASY

And AFFORDABLE for everyone!

This is why we LOVE this kind of dog training - and more than the real thing, the PAID dog trainer - because they won't repeat a specific sequence for us multiple times, and day after day until we get the same success with our own dog (unless we PAY them extra everytime)!

More so, a live PAID dog trainer CANNOT repeat a specific sequence for us multiple times, because the dog trainer is not a machine: Everytime we ask him for repetition he will show us some things slightly different - which will confuse us even more (and often ends up in those familiar situations: "But you just showed it different!" - "No, I didn't" - "Yes, you DID!"....).

This is why we LOVE this kind of dog training more than the real thing, the PAID dog trainer.

Does this exist?

Does such COMPLETE and LIVE VIDEO dog training course exist?

Yes, finally!

It has been created by the professional dog trainer Dan Abdelnoor, or "Doggy Dan" as he calls himself.

So, not by some youtube wannabe dog trainer who merely experiment on their own dog their own ideas about dog training.

No, this "Doggy Dan" has a real long-standing dog training business in his hometown near Auckland. He visits real people like you and me, waiting with their dogs, to give them real and live dog training advice. If the dog owner wants, Dan takes his own dogs with him in the van, if not he comes alone.

Now Dan created a massive website with OVER 250 COMPLETE AND LIVE VIDEOS, full of all kinds of dog training situations. His videos show a unique approach to teach your dog without force, fear or aggression. Very much like our own training approach here at MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG!

Dan's dog training approach is so calm and gentle that the SPCA have fully endorsed his dog training (and only his) on their own website - not even the much more famous Cesar Millan got that kind of recognition!

And Dan's dog training approach is so successful that he has already been featured on TV with his dog training successes - not for his crowd entertainment skill (like certain more famous 'dog trainers'...).

So I wanted to test just how successful Doggy Dan's dog training really is, and thus I became a member of his site myself. I watched the videos on the topics that interested me most at each point in time (where I felt I needed improvement), and what I learned I APPLIED to our own dogs and the rescue dogs.

The results were stunning. I can confirm that Doggy Dan's dog training approach is as much unique as it is effective!

And the price?

Being a top notch professional dog trainer, Dan currently charges $440 for a 3 hour+ consultation in Auckland, New Zealand. Of course no one of us can afford this amount AND travel to New Zealand for ONE 3 hour dog training consultation!

A Bargain!

Here's the great thing: Doggy Dan is currently giving full access to his COMPLETE DOG TRAINING VIDEO SITE "The Online Dog Trainer" for just $37 a month! Compare that to what just an average local dog trainer charges for a mere hour!! Unbelievable.

For as many lessons as we want! And for as long as we want, full access! I know Dan will become ever more successful, and I wanted to lock in this bargain price. Too good to miss really.

Here's Dan's site: The Online Dog Trainer.

I suggest that you check this out right now and lock in this bargain price too. Lift the relationship with your German Shepherd to a new level of pleasure! Learn from this professional dog training made super-easy with complete and live videos!

Here's my tip: Once you have site access,

  • Navigate to the most-pressing issue that you want to resolve with your German Shepherd, or the training goal that you want to achieve with your German Shepherd right now.
  • Then WATCH THE VIDEOS for this training goal, to get a first idea HOW the professional dog trainer Doggy Dan is mastering it. You may take notes (see above why), but you don't have to.
  • Next, take your GSD and immediately APPLY what you just learned. Use the same behavior, the same body posture and gestics, and the same tone of voice (where relevant).
  • Repeat this with as many dog training issues and training goals you have. And one after another, solve and achieve all your objectives with ease!
  • Then please do send us your feedback what exactly you did with your GSD, and how quickly you got the result you wanted. Ideally, if you can, also send us a video if you have someone who can record while you teach your GSD?
  • We would be ever so grateful, and if you want we will feature your story and video on MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG under German Shepherd Training!

    Thanks for all of your information. Just signed up for doggie dan's site. Great information. Gordon


      "Great information."
      I hope you mean our site Gordon. Just joking. Thank you. :-)

      Re/ Daniel's site: Yes, admittedly very great too. All of us here including myself have learned so much from Dan's videos, it can't be put into words or dollars! It just annoys me that I haven't built that site, hm...


    hi tim
    i clicked on the "insider info on professional dog training" on your site, it brought me to the periodiacal where it says dog training made easy, but I cannot open the link , it says it is locked??? please help me find my way through your site.......just registered.....thanks


      Joel, if you "just registered" you can't have received Dog Training Made Super-Easy. Maybe that's why it's locked?
      NO, this was a joke. They are all locked. But they clearly say when they open up:
      "This content is locked

      PLEASE SHARE your love for our Periodicals
      - It's one click of a button! -
      If you don't, wait until all spammers give up..."


    My dogs very protective over me my husband and two kids. He will bite me if I try to break up a fight between our girls. How do you stop this aggression. That's the only time he will bite.


      Debbie, biting you is NOT acceptable under ANY circumstances, no matter what you do. This means, from your dog's viewpoint, you are (at that moment) NOT the accepted Pack leader. But every family member must be (crucial for safety reasons)!
      Please feel free to download these training essentials, you would get them next month anyway, but I feel you need them NOW, right?
      Please apply them to the letter, they really help if we just apply them.

      In case you face any further trouble, do let me know here, okay?


    My GSD is a 1 year old female. We just rescued her 1 month ago. She is great! Except we have been unsuccessful in stopping her from jumping on the bed in the mornings. Especially the weekends when we don't necessarily want to be up at 5 :).


    Kyra and I have taken advantage of the recommendation to Doggy Dan's training site. I'm very excited about learning from the best. Kyra will be 4 months old next week on 22 June. She's already learned so much but I realize we have to go back to the basics - this is what I've learned from Dan thus far. Thanks so much, Tim.


      Hi Tomeka,

      With Kyra being 4m, pl put enormous effort (>90%) into socializing her super-well. More important than "training" for a young GSD.
      Yes, I too feel Dan is outstanding. I have meanwhile interviewed a row of dog experts and can compare how they reply to specific questions (aka what do they really know), how they argue a point, what training they do with their own dogs, and how and why, etc etc.

      Dan truly is outstanding. And: he only charges a fraction over the lifetime of a dog of what other (often mediocre) "experts" charge upfront/outright at the moment you have a puppy. And when the pup grows into adolescent and adult, they charge BIG again. For every problem you face. And: most of them only deal with symptoms, I noticed. Heck, they don't even know the difference btw behavior symptoms and behavior cause.

      Ah well. We teach a LOT more through our free Periodical over the coming years... But you are lucky now, with Dan you learn most of it immediately. Which is of course essential, given that you have a GSD puppy. Now see my top sentence again. ;-)


    hey tim,

    definitely looked into this training as an alternative to a trainer I really want to use but has inflated his price to something i can't afford. my mother took our black lab there years ago, and the product is unbelievable. we had complete and utter control of our dog sydney, and was trained in a slang german language. good to see an actual real time endorsement, so i'll definitely have to go forward with it since it sounds like he's just as good. thanks!


      Andrew pl who is that local trainer you are referring to? Maybe I know of him, I have compared countless trainers (though only perceived top trainers). If he is as great, I am sure he must pass my trainer assessment. If so, I could refer others to him who ask for that area.
      In the Dog Expert Interview Series (the 2nd REVIEW) I give tons of precise criteria when/why to choose whom (local vs online), and what a local trainer must offer to be of any benefit at all, and how to assess a trainer's expertise (both local and online) BEFORE even buying into it, and how to assess the actual outcome, and even what I myself would offer if I were to offer dog training consultations (I don't), and why I would offer it that very way for the benefit of the dog owners.

      Note that Doggy Dan Abdelnoor here, he understands and teaches Behavior Training, not just the omnipresent, primitive Obedience Training that everyone else does. In fact, besides myself, I know of only 3 dog trainers who understand Behavior Training. Of course each of them in a slightly different way than I do it (you will get those Periodicals later - if you stay :lol: ).


    Tim, thanks for your reply! His name is Steve Nixon, based out of Mantua in southern NJ. When we first adopted Sydney at 6 months old, she was out of control. According to my mom, there were a few trainers who recommended she be put down because of it, then we found steve, and I can tell you hands down, that he worked wonders on her, and had even started her in therapy dog training, which wasn't completed for reasons unknown (i was much younger). She's 16 now and still obeys those same commands (to some degree) but he literally saved her. I wanted to take my Roya to him, but his price is nearly triple what my mom paid so i've been looking for a suitable alternative. I'll definitely read that article you referred to. Thanks again for your reply.


    Hi Tim,

    I actually went over to check out Doggy Dan after seeing a reference to his gesture eating video some weeks ago in your material and I was very impressed and signed up as I was having some new issues with our dog Beau barking at night all of the sudden. I put in place the techniques Dan recommended and it completely stopped him barking. He still occasionally starts barking again but I figure he is a puppy and just like small kids need repeat reminders about their behaviour – he will as well.
    Thanks for the recommendation and I am sure Dan will appreciate it too.


      Kim, sounds great. Now I am wondering what Dan suggested that I didn’t. But the key is: You got helped :-)


    Tim .... I am behind on reading your periodicals but plan on catching up soon. Axel has been sick so all of my time was with him helping him recover. Please keep up the great work and sharing of your vast knowledge. Please know that I truly appreciate you and what you do.


    Tim ... Axel was playing with toads in the yard in the evenings and there was supposedly a secretion that caused his illness. He has been on antiobioticcs for a few days now but is doing much better. Maybe something your subscribers need to know .....


      They do know, and I am surprised you don't?
      You haven't said WHAT illness, which makes it likely that it hasn't been determined.
      Everyone who has ever learned something from me knows that antibiotics as blanket treatment are the second-worst one can do!
      Yes, sometimes it seems for a while that the dog "is doing much better" as you say, but now you've created more problems than you aimed to solve.

      It's so sad to see every day that I break my back five times over to HELP people make wiser decisions, but they continue with their routine as if they've learned nothing from it. :cry:


    We've made use of Doggy Dan's expertise, and we are so grateful! Your tips are invaluable, thank you Tim.
