Brain Training For Dogs Review: Does It Really Work?

Hey you! Today I’m here to review the Brain Training For Dogs’ course that I have personally purchased and tested with a 6-month Golden retriever. I was looking for a way to sort out my dog’s behavior, but I’m no professional so this course helped me a lot. Let’s get into what you came for…


Most of the new dogs are a huge problem for their owners until they get their behavior right. When I first got my dog Trixie she would run down the street, chew up just about everything around the house and fight other dogs every day! To make things worse, I had my husband telling me every day that we would need to get rid of her, as it was more hassle than it was worth. Havoc would be an understatement!

All of this led me to search for ways to fix her behavior, and that’s when I came across this course. But first, obviously, I called local dog trainers and consultants to see if they could help me with this, but it didn’t work because the prices are very high. So, I asked my friends for help and they gave me the idea to try online. That’s when I found this course created by Adrienne Farricelli (she’s also in a few commercial publications, so I’m sure you’ll find some info on her). She has over 10 years of experience training dogs, which helped me trust the info inside the course.


Each training lesson leads to the next one, so everything has a sequel making it so much easy to pick up where you left off, helping you progress accordingly with the training as well. Every module begins with an introduction page bringing a resume of what you are going to see next, including some links to each lesson.  It counts with a forward and back button, making it super easy to navigate on.


After you purchase you will be directed to a sales page, where they have 2 more offers that I honestly didn’t take. The sales page also has a lot of content about what you can expect to see in this course. Anyways, after the purchase, they send you an email with the link to the videos and pdf downloadable.

The section that I used the most was the one that covered over-excitement and bad behavior, which came with tons of techniques that you can apply on calming your dog down. I tested it out for a few days and noticed a slight improvement. Once I got stuck in later stages I really saw a significant change. Just below are a few games that you get too. I personally only tried the second one which was pretty fun as Trixie enjoyed it too.

1. The muffin game’ to keep your dog mentally stimulated and out of trouble.

2. ‘The ball pit game’ to drain your dog’s energy and make him easier to work with – all while they have a ton of fun and exercise.

3. The ‘treasure hunt game’ that gets your dog back to his evolutionary roots and relieves the ‘boredom’ that leads to so many problem behaviors.

I must add that the really good thing about this course is that all the info isn’t too hard to pick up on. It’s pretty much simple all the way through, so there are no restrictions whatsoever on what you can try.


I can guarantee you won’t fall short on information. There is so much info in there that can be a little bit of a drawback as you’ll never really find the time to get through it. See a little bit of what you will get:

  • Obedience training 101: it teaches mainly how you can use food to train your dog to complete your commands, key strategies for getting your dog to come to you and listen to your every command, and, of course, the critical element needed to get your dog to lie down or move items.
  • Six modules of videos
  • Seven trick training videos including cover his eyes, take a bow, shake hands, dance, how, play Dead, and rollover.

THERE IS MORE: brainteaser games, dog training science and techniques, best dog mental stimulation toys, video demonstrations of the dog training games, and troubleshooting segments of the course.


Yes!! To be quick honest with you, the information is very easy to be consumed. Additionally, the book is very well written, it’s all sectioned into areas of problematic behavior (this helps so much) AND it counts with tons of help inside such as little menu bars helping you navigate the site. You can clearly tell that some level of effort was put into the information that you get inside. 

Tons of information inside


Can discuss issues, the problem is you can’t find answers to the inside of the course

Meaning, that you are never tied down to anything indefinitely you can come and go as you please

Simple to follow and step by stepYou get to train your dog yourself  
Some of the info was very generic (walks in the park, toys, etc!)

The text was small on the bonus content (but I have bad eyes and the bonus content is only there as a nice to have).  


I definitely recommend this course; this is the best approach if you are having problems with your dog just as much as I was having. If you are looking for some new ways to stimulate your dog’s mental health this is suitable for you as well.

It helped me so much, now I don’t have my husband on my ears any longer and I get to keep my little Trixie!! She is not chewing up our shoes or sofa, and now she enjoys long walks just as much as I do, she is my partner!!

You can do this course from home and there’s no ongoing costs or commitment to anything. It’s a no brainer at all, and because it’s under $50, you can be sure you’ll get your monies worth.
