People are always asking us for training references, favorite books, supplies, and so on. So I decided that we would add a page just for links to some of our favorite things. There are a ton of other things available out there. These are just a few of ours that we use.
Clicker Training This website is dedicated to clicker training and has some great resources.
Do More With Your Dog This website is devoted to trick training with your dog. These books are great for kids for training as well.
Trick Training This website is devoted to trick training with your dog.
Hero Disks-This is the website we buy our Frisbees from. We use a variety of types. They are much more durable than most frisbees you can buy at pet stores and are much easier to throw. Jolly Ball-Shiver's favorite toy ITZA Tugs-This is where we buy our martingale leash tugs. CET Chews- We go through a ton of these chews with our dogs. We buy the huge size for ours so they last longer than 1 minute and do a great job on the teeth. Rawhides - Despite the bad rap rawhides have, we use a ton of these with our dogs. We do not currently own any dogs with sensitive stomachs or any that try swallowing them whole. I buy the 4" for the puppies and the 10-12" for our dogs. They tend to last for weeks and the dogs love them. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/19718971/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/2384322/ Retriever Rolls - These are the other rawhides we use for our dogs. Once again, these tend to last for weeks at our place and stay out most of the time. I also buy the huge ones at Menards for black Friday.
101 Dog Tricks We love the layout of these books. Kyra does a great job laying out training sessions in short, fun ways. 101 Dog Tricks Kids Edition This book is great for kids that want to start training. 51 Puppy Tricks Unleashing the Velcro Dog - Training Your Agility Dog to Love Working at a Distance With our crazy schedule I could never take a class, so this is where I started in Agility. I think it is a great starter book for beginners just starting to understand how hard handling can be in agility. Herding Dogs: Progressive Training I had taken lessons for years before I received this book as a Christmas present. Best present ever. It truly helped me have a deeper understanding of what we were training for.
These are some of the clubs that our dogs are showing and are registered with.
