Knowing Dogs


know. verb, "to have knowledge or clear and certain perception, as of fact or truth."


There is an important link between successful dog training and the relationship you have with your dog. A close bond and the correct blend between love and leadership is the best foundation for any type of dog training program.

Relational dog training involves taking the time to understand your dog first, then you can better choose the most effective training tools and techniques, based on your dog's individual temperament, motivations, ability to trust, acceptance of authority and the dog's environment. We realize that each dog is unique and each dog owner and their family are unique–we respect and value these differences.

The articles on the Knowing Dogs website were developed as an educational resource for anyone interested in learning more about dogs. We also offer reasonably priced dog ebooks designed to help you understand and deepen your bond with your dog, as well as solve common behavioral problems.
