What are Team Dog readers saying?

I'm a Team Dog fan! Dog with mike ritland book.

The chapter on building trust was big for me. Having always had pups the trust just seem to come natural since I was feeding and watering the dog. Now having gotten an older dog, i realized I took for granted how easy the bond and trust came with pups. Going back and reading the chapter on trust building made me realize that I needed to have better control of myself to get him to respond and look to me for guidance. Thanks Mike!

Not sure what we are gonna in the future. But right now we are just rebuilding his obedience foundation and working on some bite work.
Cheers from Kentucky!!!

taught my dog to lead the blind

From gentle leader and still pulling and fighting you on a walk to guide dog harness walking with my blind dad.  Team Dog reminded me to bring my leadership qualities from the office to home. Keely is a confident and gentle companion to my dad. She adores him and instinctively goes at his pace.

The “One Team, One Fight” motto rang true to me, knowing I can trust my dog and my dog can trust me… never breaking that bond. In the book, when you talk about being the pack leader and how to carry yourself around your dog, this is is dead on. I also agree when you talk about marker or ” clicker training.” It really is the best way to train your dog. I would highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to build a bond and have the best relationship with their dog possible.

Great job, Mr Ritland.

Hey, wait a minute! I still have questions.

Still Have Questions?

Can you tell me how much this costs?

There’s one price. You can join Mike Ritland’s Team Dog for just $84 per year. That breaks down to just $7 per month for a better behaved dog. Due to the full lessons being available upon sign up, No refunds are offered.

Be honest, what are the potential issues with this approach?

The Team Dog membership is 100% online. There is no in-person or group training. It’s up to you to engage with the training lessons, then take the time to work with your dog. You’ll have to put real time and effort into this. Nobody will do it for you. There are no in-person trainers to manage you or your dog. This means after work, when you’re tired. And weekends, too.

How does this compare to the other options and competitors?

This is you and your dog, one-on-one. You’re not meeting a ‘certified’ dog trainer in a park with 20 other people and their untrained dogs. You’re not taking your dog to a variety of distracting environments. And you’re not paying $500-$900 dollars to get your ‘Level 1’ certificate.

The Team Dog approach is to build a solid foundation of understanding and communication between you and your dog. You’ll establish who’s in charge (again, this should be you, despite what your dog may think). You’ll learn and grow together in a consistent environment with no distractions.

Importantly, you’ll be working with Mike Ritland, a man who has years of experience working with hundreds of dogs. Mike’s approach is one-on-one with the dog – this is what he will teach you.

Look, I don’t have nor do I want a Belgian Maliwhatever they’re called. I have a little house dog. Just a pet, and that’s what I want, not an attack dog or a Navy SEAL dog. Is this course right for me?

Short answer? Yes! Long answer? If you have a dog, regardless of the breed, and you want a better relationship with your dog and feel like you’re not connecting, then yes, this is a great course for you.

And if you don’t yet have a dog, you’ll learn about what to look for in a good dog for you.

I like Mike, I like the training concept, but I don’t want to join this website and get sold and sold on more products.

If you know anything about Mike, you know that he’s not a salesman or internet marketer. He’s a regular guy who loves working with dogs. He loves helping people to have as much love and fun with their dogs as he does with his own dogs. Mike does have plans for more advanced training opportunities, but he’s not a pushy sales guy. If you enjoy the Team Dog training, you’ll probably want to continue to the next level. But you definitely won’t be bombarded with offers for product after product. That will never happen.
