She does a great job breaking it down into easy to follow steps to build your dogs confidence, enthusiasm and control.

Note the emphasis on consistent body language. It is vital to decide on your cue system and stick to it.

Nancy also does a great job demonstrating how to use everyday objects and places to teach your dog.

Keep easily obtainable goals in mind from start to finish so your dog can succeed at every step.
