Obed-Teach is for dog training instructors, from those who teach household manners and puppy classes to those who offer competition classes, private lessons, and nationally and internationally recognized seminars. To become a member of this list, we ask that participants have a level of hands-on dog training experience beyond the basic skills acquired through training one or two dogs. Tightly focused - not a lot of chat. An equal opportunity discussion list: all effective and humane training philosophies embraced. Method-wars unwelcome. In existence since 1995, migrated from OU in 2003.
