Following our focus on our wonderful local Canadian Trainers we are working with, we have rounded up 5 of our Top Blogs on Dog Training. These blogs represent a variety of training styles and tips from parenting your pup to inspiring your dog’s moves and grooves.

Puppy in Training: Colby is a guide dog puppy trainer and has been for the last five years. His beautiful and inspired blog, Puppy in Training, documents the journey of training puppy guide dogs but also offers tons of great tips and tricks and product reviews for all pups and dogs alike. Be sure to check out his squeeable 20 episode video series: Puppy in Training TV. A Dog A Dog Blog has a clear focus not only on training your dog but understanding them first. Written by Lindsay Stordahl, That Mutt has been featured in Dog Fancy, The Dog Daily, and Exceptional Canine (just to name a few). With a plethora of archives going all the way back to 2007 and ebook guides to boot, That Mutt is a great first go-to stop for info on dog training, dog behavior, dog exercise and dog adoption.

Say Yes! by Susan Garrett: Now that you’ve mastered the basics, it’s time to let your dog soar high with agility in co-operative training. Susan’s respected blog, Say Yes!, features topics from fitness to foundation to world championships.

Mary Hunter from Stale Cheerios training GingerStale CheeriosStale Cheerios is a fascinating blog written by a graduate student, Mary Hunter, studying the science of behavior and training.  The site is compact with great How To articles married with the Science of Training. Hmmm…perhaps the blog can have human applications as well.
