    • You've Completed My Dog Can!

20 years ago, I brought home my first puppy, Quincey...and I thought it was going to be magic.

If TV had taught me anything, it was that puppies were fun bundles of energy that would make me laugh with playful antics and then fall asleep in my arms.

Well…. TV and reality were two totally different worlds.

I wanted sweet and I got a land shark. I wanted her to play with me and she thought everything else was better. I wanted obedient and I got a dog who stole my things and played keep-away, who wouldn’t come when she was called and who thought stay meant run as fast as you can in the other direction….

In hindsight, it was to be expected with a youngster. My puppy was normal, I just didn’t know how to fix any of the behaviours I didn’t like... until I found McCanns! The McCann Method taught me how to understand Quincey’s needs and how to use her own instincts to create skills that we BOTH enjoyed. Within a few weeks, Quincey was coming when called and no longer trying to dislocate my shoulder on walks!

Dear McCann team, I would like to say thank you for having this course available online. I started following your YouTube channel before I even took the decision to have a dog. When I finally got the dog, everything went so smooth, the crate training, potty training, response to name. Later I decided to go for this course and that was the best decision and investment I could make for my dog and myself. Now we are in week 6 of the training, my Golden Retriever is 5,5 months old and he is already such a good family member thanks to this course, all your videos, advises and encouragement. Still a long way ahead, but I’m really enjoying and looking forward to it. Thank you so much! Cristina and Goldie (Prague, Czech Republic)

What a fantastic program! We still have a ways to go with loose leash walking, but Gala comes on a dime, (every time!) understands and obeys "leave it", sit stay or down stay for 10 minutes with distractions, and has almost perfect manners. It was a great learning experience for me. I've used the method to teach her to ring a bell when she needs to go outside- amoung other things. I know that if I go back and pay more attention to loose leash walking it will work. I have one super obedient dog....thanks to McCann. Highly recommend this course.

Think about this...

  • Good dogs who are well trained are a JOY to spend time with

  • Good dogs who come when they are called get to enjoy off-leash freedom

  • Good dogs are much more likely to be included in family activities.

Still have questions?

  • What's included?

    Not only will you get access to the My Dog Can! complete course BUT YOU'LL ALSO GET new workshops monthly and access to EVERY workshop we have created.

  • How long do I get access?

    Access is for 4 months.

  • What if I need more time?

    No problem! After your 4 months has expired, you can continue on a monthly basis for only $19.95/month!

  • Who is this course for?

    My Dog Can! is for people who want a well-trained, well-behaved 4-legged family member.

  • Will this course work for my dog?

    The benefit of My Dog Can is the collective decades of experience of the trainers behind it. If you run into a problem, chances are we’ve seen it and solved it before. Purchasing My Dog Can gives you access to an amazing program that will take you step-by-step through the process of training the skills we all need in order to have a well behaved and safe 4-legged family member. Since dogs are not robots, when they do something different or unexpected, you’ll be able to use your unlimited support options to call on our experience and troubleshoot the less common problems.

  • Can I enroll anytime?

    Yes! Our doors are always open. Start anytime and you’ll get full access to all content (including new mini courses monthly) and support for as long as you're a member.

  • What if I decide it’s not the right course for me?

    No problem! Let us know within 48 hours in order to get a full refund. We're THAT confident that implementing what you learn in the course will work.

  • What if my dog is older?

    No problem! All dogs need training and the adage we’ve all heard about old dogs not being able to learn new tricks is simply not true! Older dogs, be they new to your home or just in need of a refresher in training LOVE to think and learn. Mental stimulation is very rewarding for dogs, regardless of their age.

  • Will I get as much out of this as I would if I went to a class?

    We get this question a lot and truly, it’s very dependent on your personality. If you are the type of person who can’t get through tasks without having someone stand over you to dictate, you should get to a class! If you like to work through things at your own pace; if you like to watch instruction more than once; if there are multiple members of your family that would like to participate in training; and if you can keep working through the material without someone ‘cracking the whip’, join us in McCann Dogs Home School! Because of all of the support options and the discussion in the exclusive Facebook Group, My Dog Can has the potential to give you much, much more than a once a week class. A well-trained dog is just the tip of the iceberg!

What others are saying...

"Our biggest challenge with our dog has been getting her to come when called. Just working through the first lesson on this and I'm already seeing big changes in how I am trying to teach this essential skill. Wow. I am so glad I've signed up for this class!" 
My Dog Can Graduate

I really enjoyed the program and felt connected with the trainers even though we never met in person." 
My Dog Can Graduate 

"Loved the positive group of trainers. So great to see the enthusiasm from Shannon, Ken and Kayl! No question asked (which I am sure you've all heard 1000 times before) was ever treated lightly. Great rapport and super way of communicating. So nice to have such a depth of knowledge - working with us - and guiding us with examples, or even always brainstorming a different way to handle situations. Loved the constant videos on Youtube as well, and links to other videos through FB group etc. Great use of technology!" - My Dog Can Graduate
