A Comprehensive A-Z Implementation Guide to teaching the FOCUSED HEEL

I've taken everything I learned training over a thousand dogs (and even more HUMANS) over the last 15 years, and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program that gives you real actionable steps you can take to confidently teach the Focused Heel.

This course consists of 9 modules released weekly, each made up of multiple video lessons where you'll learn my proven strategies and tactics - the ones I use every day -  to teach competitive working dogs the Focused Heel.

So that you feel 100% supported throughout the course, I've also prepared a number of additional resources including Cheat Sheets, Worksheets, and Video Case Studies giving you all of the tools you need to get real results.

All course participants will also have access to our private Facebook group, where you can discuss course content and connect with other dog owners just like you who are serious about training their competitive dogs. And I'll  be popping into the group weekly to answer any questions you have as you begin implementing your lessons.

I'll teach you my proven system; the one that I painstakingly developed over the past decade ....the one that I still use to this day with every dog that I train for competitive dog sports and the one I regularly teach my clients. I'll give you every single step I use to teach the Focused Heel, broken down to meticulous detail, so that you can confidently execute every lesson and start realizing real results.

And I'll be there every step of the way to make sure that you have everything you need to confidently train your dog at home.

As good as it gets” is the perfect rating for Meagan Karnes of The Collared Scholar. Meagan has an amazing ability with the dogs that she trains. I meet with Meagan regularly with various foster dogs and there isn’t a session that attend where I don’t learn something new. So, would I recommend Meagan and The Collared Scholar? You bet. Hands down. She is a class act and truly loves what she does and loves the dogs that she works with.

The people at The Collared Scholar are wholly knowledgeable and professional. When we were looking for a trainer for our daughter’s pit bull puppy several years ago, we interviewed and tried over six different trainers. When we met with Meagan of Collared Scholar our search was over. Her professionalism and knowledge is unparalleled. I am a past president of the Catalina Island Humane Society and have owned over sixteen dogs over my lifetime. During my life I also worked with many trainers. NONE have even come close to the caliber of Meagan and all of the trainers and staff of the Collared Scholar.
