Think outside the box: Dog training for the rest of us – September 23 – 25, 2016. This workshop is for dog owners and dog trainers interested in learning to “think outside the box” when working with dogs. This is not your traditional dog training workshop! Through a variety of short lectures and hands on exercises, participants will be laying the foundation for a play-centric approach to dog training.
This workshop will focus on teaching you, the handler, the skills necessary to communicate effectively with your dog in a positive, relationship-centric fashion. You will learn how to train through the practical application of motivation, tricks (yep, obedience is just another trick!), and games. You will develop a brand new set of skills which you can apply to quickly and reliably teach your dog valuable life skills!
“As an added bonus, participants will enjoy a session learning about the application of non-verbal communication in training. Friday afternoon will be spent interacting with horses, learning how body language and spatial pressure can be used effectively in training dogs.”
