We love dogs. We also love men who love dogs. So, imagine how we feel about Brandon McMillan - the best looking dog trainer ever! It's safe to say we're in love. If you haven't seen his show, Lucky Dog, it's currently available on CBS All Access and is a great binge watch for anyone who loves dogs (or men). It's a feel good show where Brandon rescues troubled dogs from local shelters and trains them to become perfect companions for their new families.
As much as we love the show, we found ourselves wondering how he does it - getting difficult dogs to sit and stay in a couple of days. So, we were thrilled two years ago when he finally published his book, Lucky Dog Lessons: Train Your Dogs in 7 Days. We immediately purchased several copies and honed our training skills. Since then, we've recommended this book to many puppy families looking to work on basic commands. While we love the book, we still felt something was missing - it's sometimes hard to convey the motion of hand signals or commands by written word (okay, maybe it was because you don't see Brandon himself in the book and again, he's really easy on the eyes).
Enter the recent MasterClass announcement and our excitement to learn that Brandon now has his own dog training class! If you aren't familiar with MasterClass already, it's a great platform where you can take classes on various topics - we've learned tennis from Serena Williams and cooking from Gordon Ramsey. These classes were both great, but the ability to watch Brandon McMillan train his dogs - LIVE - has been a blast. In fifteen video lessons (totaling about 3 hours) Brandon shares his simple and effective training system to help you develop trust and control with your dog. He covers sit, stay and down - as well as problem areas like barking and digging.
MasterClass is billed at $15 a month and offers a 30 day money back guarantee. We simply can't recommend this enough for all those new puppy owners wondering how to create the perfect companion. If you decide to try it we would love to hear what you think!
