Wild Puppy Mini-course

Selected lessons from the Brilliant Family Dog Academy

  Enroll in Course

Beverley has picked out four complete lessons from the full course to get you results - fast! - with your new puppy.

You love your new pup, but he is really trying your patience right now! Find out how to “speak dog” and actually communicate with him, instead of having those senseless battles of wills that may be happening now, making you doubt that this can ever work!

Beverley calmly takes you through the first steps to get attention from your puppy, to get him to respond quickly to his lead, and how to teach loads of impulse control through play. No more biting, no more grabbing, no more scratches and nips! The dogs demonstrating their learning were all new dogs - not ones which had been schooled to perfection beforehand!

Once you’ve worked through the videos in this course you’ll be ready to start the journey proper - with your Brilliant Family Dog!

"The last three days with Maple have been incredible. Just learning your thoughts about puppies shifted my perspective enormously."

I’ve been training dogs for many years. First for competitive dog sports and over time to be stellar family pets. I found that a force-free approach was by far the most successful, effective, and rewarding for me, my dogs, and my students. It's a fascinating subject and I am continually studying and learning.

Almost ten years of teaching thousands of students in my Puppy and New Dog classes have taught me so much about how the critters learn and develop!

Having to learn how to make life acceptable for my own Growly Dog gave me the tools - and the empathy - to work with hundreds of students who have come to me in despair at their much-loved dog's "aggressive" behaviour.

My style of teaching has been influenced by my students. These dog-owners are not looking for competition-standard training; what they want is a Brilliant Family Dog they can take anywhere. Working with real dogs and their real owners keeps me humble - and resourceful! You could be brilliant at training dogs, but it's no use if you can’t convey this enthusiasm and knowledge to the person the dog has to live with. So I’m grateful for everything my students have taught me about how they learn best.
