Is there a way I can train dogs without a dog?
Hey there, so I’m 15 years old, I’ve loved dogs ever since I was little, I’ve read books, I’ve watched dog TV shows and videos on how to train, and I’d love to be able to train a dog. Is there anyway I can assist people with trainign their dogs or train dogs without having my own dog? Any ideas would be appreicated.
Contact your local humane society, and sign up to be a volunteer. The best plan is to get your hands on as many dogs as possible, so you learn how they all learn.
If you can, I’d also recommend that you take a dog training class, and borrow a dog to take to class from a friend or relative. You need to go through the process so you understand it. It’s hands-on. I can explain to you how to drive a car, but you’ll need to actually DO it to learn, right?
So, call the shelters and get involved volunteering, and look around for a dog to take to classes. Neighbors, friends, relatives– doesn’t matter. All you really need is to get a dog and take it to classes.
Check out the Association of Pet Dog Trainers website. There are resource there for learning about becoming a dog trainer.
If you really want to be a dog trainer, just be persistent. Nobody will be able to stop you if it’s something that you really want. Go for it!
Here’s another great book for you:

Can you train your dog to pick up his own poop?
I’m sick of doing it and sick of smelling it. I googled “how to train dog to pick up own poop” and it showed me a bunch of links to get the dog to stop eating it. That is not the problem I’m having though. He doesn’t want to eat poop because he gets fed well- Cheerios, occasional hot dog piece, yesterday my kid gave him a whole banana and last night my son shared his broccoli.
Anyway, how can I get him to pick up his own poop (without eating it, of course?)
Thank. YOU GUYS ROCK!
