Australian Shepherd training is essential as they are very high energy and very intelligent. (That's a bad combination in an untrained dog.) Rule of thumb: If you aren't training your Aussie—your Aussie is training you!
It is better to be aware of behavior problems than can arise and know what to do about them than it is to wait until a problem has become well established and then try to undo the damage—only to then be surprised by the next problem. You may even need to hire dog behaviorists to help you deal with serious—even dangerous—behavior problems like aggression.

Professional dog trainer and behaviorist, "Doggy Dan" has created an incredible resource for dog owners everywhere who want to take their dog's training to the next level with easy to follow video lessons covering just about any problem you'll face.
There's no need to be dealing with the same behavior problems like aggression, biting, leash pulling, barking, and jumping up year, after year, after year...
Behavior problems can range from the embarrassing to the dangerous. Often people will write in wanting to know how to deal with a specific problem. Their dog is jumping up, or has become aggressive toward other dogs. Naturally, people want to know how to fix the problem.
But, training your dog doesn't work that way. The problem is that these various behavior problems are seen as isolated issues, but they are not. They are symptoms of what happens when owners try to skip establishing the core foundation of dog training and jump to treating symptoms instead.
You will never get anywhere with training your dog if you don't start with the foundation on which all your dog training to come will naturally flow.
Doggy Dan refers to this essential component of dog training as "The 5 Golden Rules." Once this is established all your training going forward, from obedience training to dealing with behavior problems, will fall into place and can transform your dog's behavior and your relationship with them.
The best way to learn how to train your dog is by watching a professional. That's why we take our dogs to obedience classes or hire dog trainers and behaviorists to give us one-on-one guidance.
But once the class is over and the trainer has gone home you are left to your own devices and your fading memory. What if you could have a professional dog trainer and behaviorist at your home 24/7 that you could watch again and again covering whatever topic or problem you were having trouble with?
Meet Dan, or "Doggy Dan" as he is known. He is a professional dog trainer and behaviorist who has created an incredible resource for dog owners. It's an online video-based learning center organized to make it easy for you to access the information you need when you need it. Have training questions? What about serious behavior problems like biting and aggression? Dan has you covered.
One of the things that I think really demonstrate the quality of Dan's program and integrity is that he doesn't expect you to take his word for anything. To start with, he offers a free 4 part video series to introduce you to basic concepts and demonstrate the quality of the information he provides in his videos.
If you'd like to jump in a have a look at his full online video-based training program (hundreds of videos) he let's you do that too. You can get full access to his whole site (not just a few sample videos) for a 3 day trial for only $1. While he does have to charge the $1 to offset his costs, it's well worth it for 3 days of full access and it will give you plenty of time to see for yourself how good his program is and how it can help you and your dog.
Imagine the progress you could make and the transformation you could see in your dog in only a few months having access to a professional dog trainer, with answers to all your questions in an easy to follow video format available whenever you need it!
