What is the FUNdamentals™ Training Program?

Learn with Brenda AloffFUNdamentals™ is a wonderful system for training dogs. FUNdamentals™ includes teaching the dog Attentiveness, Self-Control, Body Handling and Foundation Obedience (including Sit, Down, Recall, Leave It, Walking Nice). It makes sense to dogs and to their owners, based on twenty years of experience in working with entry level dogs and students. These folks need special care and handling - and they become your consistent, future students, too.

FUNdamentals™ works because it is based on what dogs need to live happy lives with their human companions. It's a very different curriculum, not based on fads or trends, not based on military training (that is not always friendly to the lay-person), not based on performance training (that might have no interest to the basic pet person). Yet, FUNdamentals™ is an effective, pet-person-friendly training that will also interest performance dog and working dog handlers.
