Your Dog Stories and Questions

This page is about your dog stories and dog training questions. Here is a chance to share your dog's tale, problems and doubts with other canine lovers. Find inspiring narratives and answers to behavioral problems and get inspired to train your pet too!

If you have a behavioral or training question that you would like me to answer, please write down a very detailed explanation of the problem: where does the situation happen? Which animals and/or people are involved? What have you done about it? Age, breed and anything else you think might be relevant. I will need at least 150 descriptive words! Pictures of your pet showing what he is doing at the time are also extremely useful!

I will try to answer your question and find a solution always using positive methods.

Thank you for sharing your story with us! Dog Training Excellence was created to help all dog parents train their pets. By sharing your dog story with us you are also helping other pet owners be inspired to train their hounds and solve any issues before deciding to leave their pooches at a shelter!

Training your pet might seem like a challenge, but it can be done. The most amazing moments in a dog owner's life is when he/she suddenly "gets-it". When the owner understands how to behave so his/her dog understands what is being asked. It also happens when the owners learns how to make the dog do what he wants him to do! It is all about communication and a little bit of dog psychology too.

If you have experienced that "Aha" moment tell us about it! If you haven't, let us know and we will help you get there too!

All stories are worth telling, here is your chance to share yours with the world. Fill out the form above and don't forget to add some cute pictures of your furry best friend.
