I found Team Dog fall of 2016 at the same time I adopted an 8-month old Dutchie.

cute pet sleepingHe had been born in a shelter and rescued by a service dog organization and went into their prison program, which he flunked out of for being too “vocal”. He had been passed around a bit and had no interest in any toys, food, play, praise – nothing – just wanted to be left alone.

After watching the first couple videos on Team Dog, I started right in with rapport building, joking to my friends that I needed to “work on our relationship” before I got into formal training.

One year later, he’s my best friend, trustworthy in any environment, loves to play and fetch and has responded amazingly to the clicker training. The Team Dog approach taught him how to learn and be engaged, and after that everything was easier. Awesome program, great participants that are caring and thoughtful, and Mike’s videos keep you motivated. Whenever I need some inspiration, I re-watch them!

How much does Trikos Team Dog cost?

You can join Mike Ritland’s Trikos Team Dog for just $99 per year. Due to the full lessons being available upon sign up, no refunds are offered.

What makes Trikos Team Dog training unique?

This course is for you and your dog, one-on-one. You’re not meeting a ‘certified’ dog trainer in a park with 20 other people and their untrained dogs. You’re not taking your dog to a variety of distracting environments. And you’re not paying $500-$900 dollars to get your ‘Level 1’ certificate.

The Trikos Team Dog Online approach is to build a solid foundation of understanding and communication between you and your dog. You’ll establish who’s in charge (again, this should be you, despite what your dog may think). You’ll learn and grow together in a consistent environment with no distractions.

Importantly, you’ll be working with Mike Ritland, a man who has years of experience working with hundreds of dogs. Mike’s approach is one-on-one with the dog – this is what he will teach you.

How is the online approach different?

Since the Trikos Team Dog membership is 100% online, there is no in-person or group training. It’s up to you to engage with the training lessons, and then take the time to work with your dog. You’ll have to put real time and effort into this. Nobody will do it for you. There are no in-person trainers to manage you or your dog, but there is a community where you can share your progress. This means you’ll need to be with your dog after work, when you’re tired, and on the weekends to train with consistency.

Will I be sold more products when I join Trikos Team Dog?

Mike is a regular guy who loves working with dogs. He loves helping people to have as much love and fun with their dogs as he does with his own dogs. Mike has plans for more advanced training opportunities, but you can decide whether to participate in them. If you enjoy the Trikos Team Dog training, you’ll likely continue to the next level.

Mike may offer products and services through Trikos Team Dog that will help improve your dog’s health, your skills for training, and your relationship with your dog.

I have a house dog, a loved pet. I don’t have an attack dog or a Navy SEAL dog. Is this course right for me?

Yes! If you have a dog, regardless of the breed, and you want a better relationship with your dog or feel like you’re not connecting, then yes, these are great courses for you.

If you don’t yet have a dog, you’ll learn what to look for so you can find a good dog for you.
