Watch Jake explain our new all-access pass:

Get access to all our courses for one low monthly price

Your membership also includes:

Two live Q&A’s per month. Bring us your questions, and let us help you troubleshoot your canine conundrums. If you show up live to these sessions, we can chat about your specific issues and help you troubleshoot. This feature has previously only been available to coaching clients.

New content added every month. The big courses are cool and all, but OH BOY do they take a long time to make. This new structure allows us to quickly create smaller, yet detailed tutorials on a variety of subjects.

In May, our new content will include a mini course all about food motivation, So Your Dog Won’t Work For Food.

The Rescue Dog Roadmap. The most common question we get about our big flagship program, Puppy Survival School, is “will this work for my new adult/teenage rescue dog?”

The short answer is… mostly, but not completely. Raising a puppy and a rescue dog are similar, but different experiences. What all you folks with a new rescue dog really need are bits and pieces of ALL our courses.

So we’ve created a new feature: the rescue dog roadmap. It’ll show you exactly which lessons to take from each course, so you can get your new dog settled in.

We’ll be adding more roadmaps over the next few months, to help you quickly make progress on a variety of canine issues.

Finally get your dog to stop pulling and happily walk WITH you, with a step-by-step plan that mortals can follow.

Dog Introductions Demystified

All about techniques for safe and happy dog introductions, plus a deep dive into the body language and “rules” of dog to dog interaction. Consider it our advanced Dog Speak class. Also includes an extra course called Dog Parks Demystified and other bonus content.


Erin Buvala and Jake Buvala (a husband-and-wife team. Adorable, I know)

At, we’ve been helping dog owners feel less lost since 2009.   

I (Jake) started 3 Lost Dogs to provide simple, effective, and non-judgy dog training information to dog owners. For the last twelve years, I’ve been producing articles, videos, and ebooks that help people make it through the crappy parts of dog life, and get to the good parts.  

After helping out “part time” for a couple years, Erin officially joined 3 Lost Dogs as my business partner in 2021. With degrees in science and journalism, as well as a long shelter volunteer career, she’s been a boon to this project. She makes sure the advice we give is up-to-date by digging through the latest canine scientific research. Sifting through the endless sea of information so you don’t have to.

This Academy is the next evolution in the 3 Lost Dogs project, and it’s been a labor of love. We’re proud to be able to provide detailed video courses that show you exactly how to put the principles we’ve been preaching into action. 

The dog training methods I use today are not the same ones I started my career with; I’m always learning and improving, finding better ways to help dogs and their humans. Erin and I are big believers in continuing education, and our idea of the perfect date is attending dog behavior/training conferences together.⁣⁣


Terianne writes: Dear Jake, I just want to thank you so much for starting the 3 Lost Dogs Academy. My Husband found your courses and pointed them out to me when I was losing my mind. We recently adopted a 5-6 month old Blue nose pit mix and he was a touch more than a bargained for. When I thought 'This is it? What was I thinking?' He found your academy and it has given me a clear way forward to understand Kevin and better meet his needs. It's nice to finally be bonding with my boy and not be endlessly frustrated with him. So thank you again, really.
Susan writes: Jake, you and Erin are fabulous - thank you for all these great resources. I plan to use all of them and am so happy I found 3 Lost Dogs. Also, congratulations to you and Erin - what a wonderful team/couple you make! Best, Susan and Molly
