Brain Training for Dogs is the ultimate program for all dog owners who are looking for high-quality, professional dog training lessons but for a fraction of the price of in-person sessions and without ever having to leave their home. The average cost of traditional dog obedience training lessons is up to $600 per week, which increases depending on the trainer you’re using, the type of training you’re doing and if any extra time is needed.
However, with Brain Training For Dogs, you get all the training you could ever need, both behavioural and intellectual, right online. The training lessons are based on proven methods that use positive reinforcement, and created by a professional CPDT-KA certified dog trainer. You don’t need any extra equipment or tools, and the training is broken down for a gradual and enjoyable experience.
What is Brain Training for Dogs About?
Only 25% of dogs in the United States receive professional dog training, likely because the cost of traditional in-class sessions are far too expensive. Brain Training For Dogs is an online program that brings all of the professional dog training anyone would ever need, right to you on your digital screens and for a fraction of the price. It’s a comprehensive system that is separated into two training series:
- Brain training
- Behavioural training
The first series is where you’ll find the majority of the lessons – from basic obedience to more advanced skills and tricks. It’s separated into five parts and levels based on where your dog is at intellectually or with their training. For example, it starts with a preschool and ends with “Einstein” level training.
The behavioural training portion provides you with a couple of extra lessons that address common behavioural problems. You also receive access to over 100 additional resources and training that cover even more.
Most importantly, all of the training is 100% ethical and designed to be a fun bonding experience for you and your dog. You don’t need any extra equipment or tools, other than the common dog items such as a leash, collar, treats, and so on and so forth. Other than that, the lessons use positive reinforcement and are based on training philosophy that is scientifically proven to work for all dogs.
To access the program, you simply login using your username and password which you receive upon purchase. This gives you immediate access and the option to easily use the training anytime, anywhere and right from your smartphone, tablet or computer. The program also comes with a 60-Day Money Back Guarantee, so you can give it a try and see what you (and your dog) think, risk-free!

Overview of the Brain Training for Dogs Program
Brain Training For Dogs is a comprehensive program that provides you with all of the professional dog training and lessons you could ever need to get the dog you dream of. From basic obedience to advanced skills and tricks, it aims to bring dog owners’ the training they need to ensure the health, safety and enjoyment of their furry companion and family as a whole. Since it comes with such a vast array of lessons and training, the program is separated into two different sections – brain training and behavior training. The brain training is where you’ll find the majority of the lessons, which are separated into five modules to ensure an easy, gradual, enjoyable experience. In other words, module one creates the foundation for module two, and module two creates the foundation for module three and so on and so forth.
Both training series come with detailed tutorials that come with step-by-step instructions, photos, tips, advice and guidance.

The main Brain Training manuals are separated into four main parts, with each focusing on a specific category of topics and/or training well throughout. Each provides you with detailed training, lessons and helpful information that can be used to advance through the program. For example, the first module comes with all the basic information about the program’s method and training you’ll be using. It covers things, such as the structure of the training lessons and the items you’ll want to use with the training, such as treats, toys, a leash, a clicker, etc.
The second module covers basic obedience training as well as the first tasks and commands every dog should know and needs to know to be able to improve their behavior. For example, any type of training can be quite difficult if your dog doesn’t first know how to sit, stay, and recall.
The third module then provides you with training that builds off of the basic obedience you learned in the prior section.
Then, module four provides you with every possible training lesson you could imagine, all of which are separated into categories based on their training level/progress. For example, the easiest training, tricks and commands can be found in the “preschool” section, with the “elementary” section building off of that, and so on and so forth. All of these lessons are designed to be fun activities and games that are enjoyable for both you and your dog.
The last module then provides you with all of the additional resources and information you may need to continue on with advanced training even after completing the program.
