Tenderfoot 3-Step training echoes how animals teach each other in nature. Therefore, dogs learn the basics of the Tenderfoot 3-Step quickly—usually after 3-5 repetitions of each drill. Many folks get everything they need from just the first 2-hour session. They do the drills, practice, and their dog’s behavior changes just as they hoped. Others may need more sessions.

Tenderfoot video training is the answer for people wanting to train their dogs on their own, at their own pace. Over 4 hours of HD video learning is available, led by the inspirational Doug Simpson. Instructions to access the video training will be emailed with your order confirmation, as well as the Home Training Guide.

Each drill is introduced by Doug Simpson and his dogs and then repeated with an array of clients and their dogs. Drill objectives, set-up and reviews, along with handling tips, are all featured in onscreen text for easy note taking and quick reference. Once you’ve practiced each drill, a comprehensive review training session is also included, as well as suggested “homework” to assure the behavior changes last a lifetime.
