Hi! I'm Doggy Dan...

Dog Trainer, Behaviorist, Author and Speaker

As a full-time, professional dog trainer, I've seen it all. And I show you the very same proven techniques in the videos as I use everyday in my own live consultations. This is not a collection of YouTube videos from some wannabe dog trainer. It's a culmination of my life's work with dogs and their owners. You get an expert dog trainer at your service, in your home or on the walk, at anytime.

The Only SPCA Endorsed Method

My dog training resource is the ONLY one proactively used by and endorsed by the SPCA (NZ Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). Feel safe knowing that no harsh methods are used on your beloved pet; we only teach kind, gentle methods that work. This is why over 10,000 people have been happy to use my training on their dogs, with excellent results.

My Method Is Fun And Easy

Feeling like owning a dog or puppy is no longer enjoyable? Well relax and let the stress disappear as you create a beautiful new relationship with your best friend. The techniques are so simple even the kids can get involved - just the way it should be!

Thousands Of Happy Dog Owners Have Transformed Their Relationship With Their Dog - And You Can Do It Too...

She was NIGHTMARE! We were desperate:

Now they're best mates after just 3 DAYS:

He just OBEYS us now!

We had 12 issues and SOLVED them all!

We can EASILY leave her at home alone now:

The whole family thought I was a HERO:

I feel in CONTROL – I know what to do now:

She doesn't jump anymore – AMAZING!

At the SPCA we use Dan's site to SAVE DOGS LIVES:

"Dan has given our SPCA's access to his website to equip them with the tools they need to Save Lives - because dog aggression or just bad behavior can mean the difference between life and death for a stray or unwanted dog. I fully recommend Doggy Dan and his method!"

Robyn Kippenberger, Former National Chief Executive NZ SPCA

As a Vet I ONLY recommend Doggy Dan's training website:

"As a Vet I now have somewhere to point my customers to - a solution to every dog behavior issue. Definitely recommending it to all my clients! Congrats on putting together what is undoubtedly the best dog training site on the web."

Dave van Zwanenberg, BVet Med (Hons) MRCVS - Kumeu

It's now ESSENTIAL for all our clients to use 'The Online Dog Trainer':

“Thanks Doggy Dan! We love your dog training site and are recommending the site to all our clients... in fact I am telling everyone that we are using your rules, tools and techniques at our Doggy Day Care and they must join so that their dogs have the same consistency at home.”

Lisa Hudson, Owner & Vet Nurse, Absolutely Precious Paws

Instant success after other "EXPERTS" failed:

"We had numerous "expert dog trainers" work with Mitsy, to no avail, so I was skeptical when your website was recommended. But I can truly say that your simple method has won her over, and now I'm a total believer. Mitsy's so much better and her aggressive behaviour change around us and other dogs is remarkable. Absolutely no aggression at all. Recommended to all!"

Robert and Fay - Sandspit

Dan knows EXACTLY what works with puppies:

“I started training with Doggy Dan's videos several weeks before bringing home our 7 week old puppy. When Abby arrived, I felt well equipped to tackle raising a puppy. By then I had watched every video and really focused on the Project Moses training. I was amazed with the results with my very young girl. Dan knows exactly what works to change a dog’s bad behavior.”

Chris Teer
Chris Teer 11 week old Golden Doodle puppy

Within 20 minutes we were taking back control:

"When I first saw your site I thought, oh yeah, how long is this gentle approach going to take? But within 20 minutes of applying your method we were taking control of Sammy. Overnight he changed radically; he's much happier and the jumping, barking, peeing etc has all calmed down. I was always annoyed, but now I'm in total control and he's a real member of our family. Thank you Dan."

Different dog! Calm when other dogs walk past:

"Our dream of a great dog was over for good, and we really thought it was always going to be like this… Benji would pull and lunge towards other dogs to sniff, or start barking to get their attention. It was driving my husband and I crazy. But after Doggy Dan’s training Benji is now a different dog! He still has his spunk and loves to play but is calm when other dogs walk past. It is brilliant."

"So Why Can Living With A Dog Be So Hard?"

With the nickname of "man's best friend" you'd expect it to be easy and natural to share your home with a dog. But really, it isn't like that. I bet the reason you're reading this is because you're struggling to build the rewarding relationship with your dog you so desperately want.

So I'll let you in on a GIGANTIC SECRET... (and it's something that most dog trainers are 100% guilty of!)... here it is:

Mistakenly, people expect dogs to THINK like humans,and then they TREAT them like humans.

Yep, this is the fatal flaw we all make and why it all goes so wrong.Think-like-a-dog

You see, a dog is a dog. A canine. A completely different species. And they always will be. Dogs don't think like we do or respond to our our actions the way we want them to. The same way a bird or a horse has their own way of thinking.

But when we understand what's actually going on with our dogs, and know what they respond to, then we can win their minds. And the behavioral training then becomes easy.

Today, with The Online Dog Trainer you'll get the tools to transform your dog into your best mate, and you can get them for FREE...

What's Different About My GSD Training Method?

  • You create lasting changes

    My method explains how to simply treat the underlying cause of bad behaviour and not just the symptoms. This means that the problems go away for good. You’re not just applying a Band Aid.

  • You get results quickly

    Using my 5 Golden Rules of Becoming The Pack Leader to win over your dog’s mind, you remove their stress of being in charge all the time – the changes can be dramatic, just applying the minimum training!

  • It makes YOU feel great

    Dogs love calm and gentle techniques and by implementing my training, you’re working with your dog’s nature, not against it. So not only do you feel good but your dog will also appreciate that there’s no need for screaming and shouting. Lets face it; we all love it when we’re obeyed.

  • Save yourself a fortune over the lifetime of your dog

    Many people spend hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, in training for their dogs and they still end up with problems. The truth is you don’t need to. This site gives you all you require to build an amazing bond with your dog that will last their whole life.

  • See me train untrained dogs (nothing is staged)

    Watch live cases and see what I do as I work with dogs and their owners that desperately need training. You can see the before, the during and the results.

  • Fit the training into YOUR schedule

    I know you’re run off your feet and trying to get to live dog training is almost impossible, (and can be a waste of time) but now you can do it when it suits you, from the comfort of your home.

  • Do things the right way from the start

    You’ll discover that much of the training “advice” out there is, in fact, absolute rubbish. When you understand my method, you’re set up to succeed.

  • Easily share with your partner and children

    Working on issues as a family is proven to give even faster and more solid results.

"Doggy Dan’s tips and instructions on handling our Schnoodle puppy Manu have been absolutely invaluable. His simple and easy going presentation makes it a great experience for the whole family. I’m thrilled at how much more we’ve learnt about her needs and what a loving and obedient dog Manu has turned into. Our family wouldn’t be the same without her." Mike McRoberts - TV3 News, Television Journalist
I had my reservations about what I could possibly learn from Doggy Dan’s video website, as I have many years of experience working with hundreds of dogs and I have already read and watched everything I could get my hands on, however I was very pleasantly surprised to learn several new techniques within the first few videos and was able to put them to good use immediately, so I can heartily recommend Doggy Dan’s video website to anybody who is looking to learn safe, humane, simple, but effective techniques for both training and rehabilitating dogs.” Sean Mc Cormack - SPCA of Taiwan, Co Founder and Executive Director
"We weren’t so sure, but finally signed up and are on day two of the 5 golden rules. Amazing! Our sweet 2 year old has been to obedience training, but it was over a year ago and now he is in adolescence and still working out some kinks. These rules are all we need to get our pup to where he needs to be. The stopping the barking with a thank you is a magic bullet! And after 2 meals of rule #1 he is back to eating his entire meal! He knew what we meant immediately. Thanks so much! You are the real deal!" Teresa Grow, Los Angeles
"We’ve all committed 100% to your five golden rules and Huxley has responded so quickly, it’s as though he’s relieved we’re finally speaking his language! I really can’t thank you enough… The simplicity and logic of your approach just makes so much sense, the change in all of our attitudes was immediate, especially Dad’s. I really believed it would be more of a struggle to get him to accept a different way of doing things, but it’s as though you flicked a switch in his mind. He spent much of Saturday evening ruminating over all the mistakes they made with their last dog and wishing he had known better. You have no idea how ground-breaking that is! I think you might have magical powers :-)" Alison Hare, Port Shepstone

What You Won't Find Inside The Online Dog Trainer...

My kind and gentle method will make you so glad you took the time to actually understand your dog rather just using force to try and stop them. Nobody really wants to spend their time shouting and growling at their dogs. Using fear and aggression to train dogs is totally unnecessary when you know what to do.

By using my proven, calm and effective approach to dog and puppy training there's a lot of things you will never need (and that don't work):

  • No electric collars!
  • No bark collars!
  • No citronella spray!
  • No water bottle spraying!
  • No chain throwing!
  • No dominating your dog!
  • No shouting or growling at your dog!
  • No shaking rocks in a jar!
  • No water pistols!
  • No harsh corrections on the leash!

Having a well behaved dog in public is something that we all long for. Those around you will be dying to know how you turned your dog into something so special. In fact it's likely that they'll be asking you for tips!

I Can't Wait To Get Started Helping You And Your Dog
