Dog Training Basics

DogSocial® is launching a range of next-generation professional dog training apps – from the professionals for ALL dog lovers and owners.

In the first app “DogSocial - teaching the basic commands”, learn how to teach your dog the important and necessary basic commands. And in a way that actually works!

In the detailed theory section, you will find out, for example, how to correctly establish a command (= friendly “command” to the dog), how to reward your dog correctly and how a good relationship is created between people and dogs. We also explain here, of course, what others neglect to say: What do I do if my training is not successful?

The theory section gets to the point quickly, concisely and clearly.

"Theory / important information” content in detail:

1. Introducing commands
2. How does the dog learn?
3. The learning principles of dog training
4. How is a good relationship created between people and dogs?
5. How do I reward my dog correctly?
6. Harness or collar?
7. What do I need to teach the commands?
8. Which commands should not be taught at the same time?
9. How often, and for how long should I train?
10. Why is my training not being successful?

The training section is systematically structured for all 10 basic commands:

1. Why I need the command
2. Establishing the command
3. Giving the command
4. Consolidating the command

21 videos* and 41 HD quality photos help you to establish the individual commands. Valuable professional tips in the theory and practise section help to avoid errors when training and contribute to successful dog training.
