It’s not ideal, but you can train a dog without going to obedience classes. I personally have never set foot in a training ring, and while I’ll admit that my two aren’t angels, they aren’t exactly unholy terrors either. You’ll have to do a LOT of reading, though, and get out and socialize more than you would without obedience classes. I suggest starting with Ian Dunbar’s books and shooting out from there (My preference is Karen Pryor, but she can get a bit technical.). This thread is a good place to start. Zak George also has some puppy training videos starting from day 1 (Which, coincidentally, feed my ravenous puppy fever).Yeah good point,,, only problem with obedience classes is Covid-19 and no classes.
