What experts are saying about Platform Training Basics And Beyond :
What an excellent training tool platforms are! Michele Pouliot demonstrates an idea that is both simplicity and genius at the same time! What I really like about the concept, besides the fact that platforms have so many uses, is that they provide a clear way for the dog to know where you want him to be and provide a clear way for the trainer to see when the dog is correct. That is terrific training!
