If you’ve been asking yourself any of the following questions…

  • When did I lose the love for owning my dog?
  • When did it stop being fun to have my dog around?
  • What would my life look like if I had a training manual for my dog?

…then it’s possible that your dog’s behavior has become more than you’ve bargained for.
If you’re feeling this way, I first want you to know YOU’RE NOT ALONE.

You see, we are often led to believe that dogs will listen and respond to us like other humans do.

Then, when our dogs fail to understand what we are asking them to do and do something else, we get frustrated, upset, and angry.

Plain and simple, most of us don’t understand how to live with our dogs.

And I used to be in this camp! Because very simply put, NONE OF US are born with THE MIND OF A DOG…

For this reason, we often feel hopeless and discouraged when, after years of attempting to train our dogs, we don’t find success.

Sadly, this pent-up frustration can quickly put a wedge between you and your dog, causing you to feel disconnected or even resentful toward your pup.

The good news…

  • It’s very likely that your dog DOES NOT NEED MORE TRAINING, the solution is actually far simpler than that.
  • It’s easy once you DISCOVER HOW TO COMMUNICATE with your dog and bring back the love and excitement into your relationship with your pooch.
  • And today, I’m going to help you focus in on THE ONE THING that you may be missing that has helped me successfully train over 37,000 dogs.

We’ll get to that in a minute…BUT FIRST I want to share one of the most eye opening STORIES with you!

Well…there you have it. Without further ado, let’s jump into the meat and potatoes of what I’m going to share today…

5 Reasons The Dog Calming Code Won’t Fail You or Your Dog

If you’re like most people, you’ve already tried a few ways to train your dog.

After all, from positive-only training using clickers and treats to more corrective methods such as using prong collars, and electric shock collars there are a thousand things you can do to try and wrangle your pup.

Sadly, even with all of these gadgets on the market, there’s very likely still a BIG piece of the jigsaw puzzle missing.

Let me explain…

Trying to train a dog who is NOT FOCUSED ON YOU when it really matters is not a smart way to train him.

Put very simply…it’s much better to get him calm and focused on YOU FIRST.

After a decade of sharing this method with over 37,000 people online, I’ve come to realize that the missing piece is the The Dog Calming Code.

It’s this essential relationship element that needs to be put in place BEFORE you do anything else if you want to avoid going crazy in the process of training your dog!

What’s the benefit to you?

Well here are 5 things The Dog Calming Code will do that will TRANSFORM the way you view training your pup or dog, taking your results to the next level.

REASON #1 – The Dog Calming Code First of All Sets Up a New Healthy Relationship.

Feel like you are often clashing with your dog in terms of what you and he want?

Almost like you are on different pages? Well the chances are you have a serious underlying glitch and that is why everything seems like a struggle…

When you and your dog are constantly challenging each other, your relationship—like any human relationship—will become strained, and it loses some of its enjoyment.

As your frustrations with each other increase, it will eventually become impossible to work through training issues because both of you will be pulling in your own directions.

This is why setting up a healthy relationship with your dog is one of the most important things you can do as a dog owner—and The Dog Calming Code will teach you how to do just that.

When you get this bit right, EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS INTO PLACE, and training your dog is no longer a battle.

You and your dog will feel like you’re on the same page and working towards the same goals, and The Dog Calming Code will help ensure that your dog starts looking to you for answers and direction when it really matters.

REASON #2 – The Dog Calming Code Makes Training Easier.

Ever noticed how some dog owners have dogs who “listen” and are obedient, while others have dogs who have “cloth ears” and are disobedient?

This differentiation has virtually nothing to do with a dog’s breed or bloodlines. Rather it has everything to do with the relational foundation that you have laid down for your dog.

You see, with a good, healthy relationship in place, YOUR dog will listen to you when it matters.

Instead of your dog doing his own thing, he will be watching you and focused on you and what you want him to do.

With The Dog Calming Code in place and a solid relationship set up, you’ll find your dog is LISTENING to you, wanting to FOLLOW your lead and TAKE DIRECTION.

And that makes for a much easier dog to train…

REASON #3 – The Dog Calming Code Is Totally Instinctive to Your Dog.

What many people love about The Dog Calming Code is that it makes sense to their dogs.

Imagine actually discovering how to speak your dog’s language…that results in a lot of fun for you both, and a lot of connection.

With this program, your training is not going to be reliant on treats and food (although food treats can certainly be used and come in very handy)

And neither is it based on forcing your dog to change…

Instead The Dog Calming Code communicates to dogs in a way that they will immediately understand and love that they should be listening to you.

You won’t have to explain why to them or train them to understand it because it’s all what they know instinctively. How amazing does that sound?

Of course, your dog may be a little surprised at first to see you speaking his language and may test you on it, but none of it will miss the mark.

It’s important to keep this in mind…

Speaking your dog’s language is not like trying to train your dog to do something such as sit in the back seat of a car…that’s a great example of “dog training.”

Rather, it’s the natural way of communicating with your dog based on the way his brain is wired.

In fact, once I share The Dog Calming Code with you, you will start to notice everything I talk about happening when a pack of dogs gets together naturally. They all speak dog!

You’ll be a step ahead of all the other dog owners, able to explain what is really going on…

Another way of looking at it is thinking of it as dog psychology 101—It’s all about tapping into the natural instincts that your dog is born with.

When you see the world through your dog’s eyes… EVERYTHING CHANGES.

You will never see Dog Training the same way ever again.

REASON #4 – The result of The Dog Calming Code Is a Calm Dog.

Picture this…

Soon after putting The Dog Calming Code in place, you’ll notice that your dog is generally more focused on you and is a far calmer.

And because your dog is now focused, watching and listening to you, he is able to switch off and not be so alert and busy the whole time.

All of it seems to make so much sense to your dog, and he is much happier and calmer about life…

The result: Both you and your dog are very happy beings.

As the stress drops away, the frustrations and anxiety disappear, and your dog is more relaxed while at home, on a walk, or while meeting people and other dogs.

Because your dog is moving into a new place of calm, the old crazy energy is a thing of the past.

You have a relaxed dog who listens and is easy to train, and everything just becomes more enjoyable!

REASON #5 – The Dog Calming Code Builds Tolerance.

Last but not least, when your dog is in a chilled-out place over a long period of time, he automatically builds up more tolerance.

Put another way, the Dog Calming Code is the foundation of what I call a ‘Bomb Proof’ Dog. A dog who doesn’t react when something alarming suddenly occurs.

For example, instead of being constantly wound up with far too much emotional and nervous energy—like a coiled spring needing to run it all off every day—your dog will be able to rest and relax.

Of course, at places like the park, he will still be happy to run and play. But, the energy your dog will give off will no longer be nervous, crazy, manic energy.

And, at home, your dog will no longer feel the need to follow you everywhere, always alert—even when he’s lying down and supposed to be sleeping instead.

He will learn to SWITCH OFF properly.

With your dog in a relaxed state, things like a child playing, a squirrel running, or a friend coming over for a visit is far less likely to set your dog off.

Instead, your dog will be focused and relaxed, allowing you to take control of any situation that crosses your path.

And that, my friend, is the powerful effect of The Dog Calming Code.

To get started, I invite you to check out my program The Dog Calming Code.

Don’t forget…

It is NOT more training that your dog needs; Rather it’s the knowledge of how to communicate with your dog that YOU are going to take charge that allows your dog to switch off, relax and calm down.

The Dog Calming Code gives you just that.

I wish you the best as you continue on your dog training journey.

Cheers,

  1. I need to know WHAT the dog calming code is. He tells me what it does but what is it exactly. How do I use it? I can’t just buy it without knowing what it really is and how it is used. Okay, it works but how? Please give me more information about it. How do I use this everyday to get my 9 month old chipoo to stop pulling on the leash; barking, growling, and lunging, at people and dogs; pay attention to me when out of the house. She is terribly scared of other dogs and people but when they aren’t paying attention to her and are distanced, she acts aggressive towards them.

    1. Hi Lu,
      It can be really hard to provide all of the information about our Dog Calming Code in one Blog post. The program is comprehensive and is best applied in it’s entirety. We do have a special offer that allows you to explore my membership website and see how it all works. Just head to TheOnlineDogTrainer.com …and maybe take a quick look…its a $1USD trial for 3 days…all the best Doggy Dan

  2. How does this method work with multiples? It is very hard to get either dog to focus on me when they are feeding on each other’s crazy energy…

    1. Hi Deana,
      Trying to work with two dogs who are over-excited is always going to be a challenge! For this reason it’s a much better idea to work with them when they are calmer or to work with them individually to start with. The main aim of the Dog Calming Code is to help dogs start to relax and bring their general level of excitement down. Once dogs start to adapt to the process then they are far more easy to work with. Best, Doggy Dan

  3. Dear Dan,
    I did see you on Youtube and now I am here. I really want to do the dog calming code for my dogs, 3 years and only 9 weeks old ( Bouvier des Flandres ), but I do not have a credit card and Pay Pal.
    I am honest, I do not want a credit card and Pay Pal, but I want to pay for the dog calming code and I don’t know how to do so. Maybe you can help me.
    I live in The Netherlands.
    Hope you can help me to get the dog calming code!!!!

    Best regards,

  4. I don’t have a CD player so i can’t watch your videos. Is there any way I can down load your programs? My Buddy, a Maltese poodle is so sweet but when he meets a large dog on our walks he goes ballistic!

    1. Hi Liz,
      Unfortunately we don’t have a download option but our membership website allows you to access an extensive video library, and watch them anytime you like. It’s a $1USD trial for 3 days…all the best Doggy Dan

  5. I have 3 adult dogs-2 large, one 25lbs.They all need to learn to walk on lead.Do I do one at a time in the yard with the others present? The Walk part of the code isnt quiet clear to me.I need it more broken down.

    1. Hi Dirk,
      It can be really beneficial to work individually with your dog, particularly if one of them tends to react and set the other dogs off. It will allow you to really focus on each dog’s individual behaviour, work them through it and then bring them all back together to practice with the 3 of them. However, if they are all pretty good on the walk together then you can train with the 3 of them at once.
      We do break The Walk down into smaller stages on my membership website TheOnlineDogTrainer.com as it’s a fairly common issue…maybe take a quick look…its a $1USD trial for 3 days…all the best Doggy Dan

  6. I have taken your dog calming course and working through it. They listen quite well and our walks are much calmer. Where I have issues is that I have two five month old puppies, sisters, and they like to play fight when I have them in the house. They become quite aggressive so quite often I have to resort to time out until they calm down. Also after living with us they are always barking at our cat and our older dog always snarls at them so I have to keep them separated. I can’t work with just one as the one left behind howls and drives everyone in the house crazy. So, for the most part working with both at the same time works. Any suggestions regarding how best to handle the aggressive play fighting? Any other suggestions would be most appreciated. The puppies are pomskies.

    1. Hi Lil,
      Play is a very natural way that dogs will establish a pecking order or hierarchy between each other and it’s perfectly fine to allow them to do that provided they do so respectfully. Keep an eye on them when they are playing, in particular their energy level and the style within which they are playing. If you see their energy level escalating too much, or they are behaving in a way you prefer they didn’t, then calmly intervene to help bring their excitement level down again. If they continue to play roughly, or they go too far, then a Time-Out can be a great way to encourage more self-control! Consistency is important for them to learn what is and acceptable play and what is not. All the Best, Doggy Dan
