Many dogs are labeled: “hyper, “stubborn,” “problem dogs,” or “aggressive” when in fact, it is their lack of Confidence that is the underlining factor for their behavior. As the guardians of these dogs will attest, living with a dog that lacks Confidence is a challenge.
Luckily I am offering a four-week course that will explore various concepts and training activities (Behavior Capsules ™) based on reward-based dog training and the Tellington TTouch® method. Together we will develop a dog that is a thinking dog instead of a reacting dog.
Your dog will become more trusting, self-aware and learn how to cope with a (constantly) changing environment. As a result, your dog will learn to respond to novel situations with curiosity instead of fear.
Who would benefit from this course?
This course is ideal for young dogs that need more structure, dogs with fears, or those who lack overall Confidence.
Pre-requisite: No prior training experience is needed.
We will explore essential and practical concepts to incorporate them into your everyday life with your dog.
During Orientation, we will explore the concept of Confidence.
The three remaining practical & hands-on lectures explore the concepts of:
- The Seeking System
- Calm and arousal. At home and outside the home environment.
- Play and how Play transforms your dog, particularly “proximity” games, social Play.
Class starts Monday, Aug 2nd runs Aug 27th. (We will meet every Friday for a 40- minutes long check-in via a private Facebook group from 11 am to 11:40 am.)
