What will TAGteach do for me?

Do you feel frustrated when it seems that there is not enough time to teach all that your students deserve because of inattention or backtracking over material already covered?

Do you wish that your students would just get it right the first time?

TAGteach gives you the tools to simplify your instructions, use fewer words, give immediate feedback and get fast results. You'll be able to communicate effectively with dog owners in class and see success at each step.

Experienced dog trainers around the world have attended TAGteach seminars and have been amazed at the difference it's made in their teaching and in their businesses. Watch this video with Maggie Ouillette to tell you about how she got started with TAGteach and why she likes it so much for teaching dog training skills.

I just attended the TAGteach Primary last weekend. I cannot say enough wonderful things. I tried out TAGteach with both my group and private dog training clients. It has made an enormous difference! Every single client gave me positive feedback without me asking them. Every single one. I am floored. I have been able to accelerate my classes so fast that I now have to completely rewrite the schedule.

I used TAGteach in each of my classes this week. It worked the best on my drop-in obedience class which is a mix of skills (dogs and humans). It's difficult to make progress at times with such a class. I love this method!
