Over the last 11 years I’ve had the privilege of helping so many dog lovers transform their good dogs into incredible dogs!
A sincere thank-you to everyone who has been on the journey with me since we launched The Online Dog Trainer in 2009. It’s because of you and your amazing pups that all of this is possible!
I knew I wanted to do something BIG as a thank-you to further help dog parents and their pups. What started as a small idea quickly turned into a complete overhaul of my Online Dog Trainer membership site and mobile app, and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
What’s new? How do you use it? And why is now the best time to restart your dog training journey if you’ve been on a break?

What’s New In The Online Dog Trainer Membership Site
First things first…
I want to make sure you’re aware that The Online Dog Trainer is still packed full of the same amazing content that was there before! So, no worries if you’re still in the process of consuming the information!
What is taught in the online courses is tried and true, so there was no need to scrap anything and start over.
This being said, we have added a bunch of new and exciting things. Think of it as getting a big bonus with all the updates that were made.
Here’s what’s now available that wasn’t accessible before…
New Dashboard with Course Progression
Tracking your progress and completing the courses has never been easier with our updated dashboard and course progression feature. At a glance you can quickly tell where you’re at and where you’re going next so you can easily visualize what you need to complete!
Better yet, the new lesson layout further ensures that you’re completing the courses in the most effective order for optimal training! This is key to your success; after all, dog training requires various foundations that must be built in a thought-out order.
Most importantly we’ve created new pathways that make it incredibly easy to work your way through all the materials without getting lost! Check out how the site guides you step by step, as shown in the image below!
Personalized Competition Certificates
We all need a little pat on the back from time-to-time and our personalized lesson completion certificates deliver just that!
Now you can feel accomplished as you’re awarded certifications while completing course lessons. How fun!
Dog Training Level Indicator and Points System
Need a little extra motivation to get the training work done? You’re not alone.
Putting the time and energy into training your dog can be a lot of work, so we thought it would be fun to incentivise everyone to follow through and get the work done.
We did this by including dog training level indications (start at “good dog” and work your way up to “The Lassie of Dogs”). But that’s not all…
As you complete the courses (and various other tasks) you’ll be awarded not only with points but also with Doggy Dollars! Which brings me to the next awesome feature…
As I just mentioned, completing courses and other various tasks will earn you what I call “Doggy Dollars.”
These Doggy Dollars can be collected and used to “purchase” awesome prizes like additional training modules and audio books or discounts on products like my line of Doggy Dan Angel Oil or my No-Pull Harness.
There are a ton of prizes you can pick from, which makes earning your Doggy Dollars while completing course materials so much fun!
Daily Goal Tracker
If you’re a goal-oriented person my new daily goal tracker tool will be sure to make your tail wag.
Select your goal for earning points each day, and track yourself to make sure you’re reaching your personal goals.
Beautiful New Mobile App
If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly on the go! That makes watching courses and tracking your progression from a desktop incredibly difficult.
When we overhauled the membership website we also built a beautiful new mobile app that contains everything on our updated website. It’s almost ready for use, and we are so excited!
Bigger, More User-Friendly Forum
I truly believe one of the most valuable things for dog owners is to have a community where you can share your struggles, successes, and ask questions to solve all your difficult dog training problems.
Over the years we’ve built a beautiful community forum for doing just that.
While the forum is mostly the same, we’ve expanded it a bit with new and exciting dog- related threads for people to enjoy.
How big do you ask?
- 28 Forums
- Over 10,000 dog-related topics
- Almost 40,000 posts
Over 77,700 members
That’s a lot of incredibly helpful resources!
Best of all, the updated look and feel makes it much easier to use so you can share your stories, ask questions, or help others quickly and easily.
How to Use the New Site: The Online Dog Trainer Membership Site Video Tour
I could write on and on about all the cool new features of the updated Online Dog Trainer website, but we’d be here for ages!
And trying to explain how to use everything via text probably isn’t the most efficient way to help you out! So, I created a quick video tour that will give you a much better idea of how to use the site and how everything works.
I encourage you to check it out above…
Work Smarter Not Harder: A More Intuitive Way to Train Yourself AND Your Dog
As you know, my entire online platform is all about training your dog. But, here’s a little secret…
If you’ve been with us for any extended period of time you know full well that training your dog is really all about training yourself! That’s why we’ve developed so many features for the platform that are designed to keep you engaged and excited as you continue your dog training journey.
First and foremost, everything is SO easy to track! We hope being able to see your progress motivates you to stay on track and reach your goals!
Second, we’ve “gamified” the training courses to make them more interesting. The ability to unlock new content, earn doggy dollars, and achieve certificates definitely makes the platform more engaging!
Oh, and don’t forget the virtual confetti that will fall when you reach various course milestones!
Last but not least, the slick, modern updated website is so much easier to use and enjoy. From fresh bright colors to a better navigation system, the user experience has been improved 1000%!

More importantly, continued training allows for the continuous strengthening of your relationship with your pup!
