The Dog Training Secret Reviews
About The Dog Training Secret
The Dog Training Secret, found online at TheDogTrainingSecret.com, is a do it yourself training guide for dog owners created by a team of professionals using the newest and most trusted training theories.
According to the website, Chet Womach and a team of trainers with over twenty years of combined experience got together in 2005 to create and develop a training program which is completely hands off, and based entirely on positive reinforcement.
The Dog Training Secret says there are three important things a dog owner needs to do to ensure a happy, well behaved dog. The first is to make sure that your dog is healthy. This means having your dog either spayed or neutered, as well as regular vet check ups and exercise. A dog that is unhealthy is likely to act out.
The second important thing a pet owner needs is particular equipment to help your dog at every age and stage of development, like chew toys, a crate, treats, a good dog bed, grooming supplies, and more.
And finally, the third thing you need for a happy, well behaved dog is good training program, and not just for puppies, but for older dogs as well. Dog owners should know that training continues throughout the life of the dog, and doesn’t just end with housebreaking.
The Dog Training Secret program focuses on training which uses all positive reinforcement and doesn’t rely on old theories of asserting dominance on your dog with hitting, yelling, or using “nasty” training devices like shock collars, prong collars, or choke collars.
The Dog Training Secret store sells training assistance tools like leashes and clickers, and a range of training programs you can buy to train your dog on your own, at home. These programs range from $37.77 for the most basic training program DVD series all the way to $197.00 for an interactive training program where you’ll watch live demonstrations online and have all your specific pet issues addressed.
Customers who have any complaints about what they receive have up to 60 days to return their product and request a refund.

16 ‘The Dog Training Secret’ Reviews
I was lured into the free "live" webinar I saw on FB - big mistake as thanks to algorithms I am now inundated with every dog ad conceivable. They try to make it seem like it is live but clearly it isn't. Total nonsense. I don't know whether to believe anything he
says or not. There seemed to be some very interesting information about dog behaviour and he is very entertaining and easy to listen to. He makes sense and sounds honest. The webinar is supposed to be one hour. For about 40 minutes I was quite interested and got a few details about dog behaviour. No training though so don't think (despite his promises at the beginning ) that you are going to come away with a single tip or exercise about stopping your dog from barking, jumping up or whatever your issue is. The info about dog behaviour is interesting (if it's true) but I think it is info you could google yourself online anywhere. And - this is important - I absolutely respect that the training is positive and does NOT encourage choke collars, shock collars, spike collars or anything like that - so I give them props for that. But at about the 60 minute mark it turns into a heavy sell job that goes on for a LOOOOOOOOONNNNGG time with just enough training and behavioural stuff to keep you hooked. I can't comment on the actual course because I was so put off by the hard marketing I was done by 1 hr and 45 minutes. I'm just saying be very prepared to be sold big time. There's no free lunch as they say. We never seem to learn this do we.
I was invited to watch a free live webinar, which promised to actually show techniques of training.
First of all, it was an infomercial, and only a teaser.
Second it was not live, but worked hard to pretend.
Survey questions popped up, and comments were made on how there were common threads in the answers.
And there was a streaming "live chat" on the side that one could try to participate in.
When I was accidentally disconnected, and logged back on, the "live webinar" started from the beginning. It was a video.
Then it took the usual infomercial route of offering a discount etc.
Now I am getting spam email from them.
I believe the reviews people are putting up about the personal trainers and live help sessions not existing and never getting responses to emails or requests for refunds.
The video tried hard to make it seem like this is a one man operation and like he is working with one other person (a professional service dog trainer). The responses that I see to people's complaints suggest that this is a bigger operation and that their main activity is not dog training, rather, it is hoodwinking people into paying for a service that doesn't exist, and protecting themselves with fine print.
I paid for this and never got anything. I ordered it in Sept. It is now Nov.and still nothing. The reviews my be right it is a scam. will have to call the credit card co. and get my money back.
I watched the webinar and signed up for the class, but at the end it was supposed to have a link (just for watching the 2 hour webinar) for a freebie. The freebie link was not there. I tried to ask through the chat but got no response. I received another link in an email for what I thought was more info but it turned out to be the SAME webinar. The weird part was that the comments and the chats were all the same from the last time I watched it. It let me put in comments and chats but no one ever responded to my questions even though my comments showed up as if it was live. And at the end of the webinar Chet talks about 8 people that had already signed up and he can only take 15. This "deal" would never be run again and you would never get the good price again as he was supposedly using the group of 15 as a test before he goes big with the program. Not sure how you can run the SAME webinar day after day for only one group of 15. Sounds like a scam to me...
1)no live chats available at all, although they are promised weekly.
2)they only replied to one of my questionswith a very short unsatisfying answer. when I asked for a more indepth answer I was ignored.
3)NO MONEY BACK guarantee. By the time they responded to my email about asking back for my money, it was day 31 after I purchased the course and refused to give back my money.
4)they ensured I would have life long access to the course, but after trying to log in my account has been removed and my emails are being ignored.
BE VERY AWARE and please get a real trainer
My dog has had aggression issues do to fear. Both the obedience training I did with her, and the ERT training were amazing! She is so much better behaved, and we can now walk past other people and dogs with her in a heal position. If these programs don't work for you, you aren't putting in the time, or your dog is just too aggressive. These programs have changed our lives, and probably saved my dog's life.
BEWARE... the bad reviews are TRUE! I spent 300.00 on this class and got NOTHING! I signed up for the class, was looking forward to training with my dog and "personal trainer" Let me just say... all dogs are not the same and you cannot get "personal" training on line. When I asked for help with a class that my dog was responding well with, I was told it was my fault, I was told I was not following instructions, I was told my dog was aggressive, and I was told my rewards were not high quality enough. ( I had fresh chicken, beef, fish and dried buffalo)
This trainer had a bad habit of telling the paying clients it was their fault their dogs were not responding properly.
I was also told that if my dog did not respond right away, I could take extra time with him, BEFORE starting the next class. However... that did no play in to the 8 week course. I wanted my money back after the first two weeks, but I was under the impression I had to wait till the 8 weeks. I had a death in the family and had to go out of town, upon my return I emailed The Dog Training Secret and asked to seek with Chet Womack, I explained that my dog did not benefit from the class and I was wanting to discuss getting my money back, they promptly told me I was not within the 8 week limit for a refund and they were sorry for any inconvenience. In my opinion, if you are looking for help training your dog, it would be best for you and your dog to get an actual personal trainer, one that can work individually with you and your dog rather than to group all dogs and people into one group. you owe it to yourself and your dog to get the best trainer, not to pay for an online class that is only out to get your money by making hollow promises.
