About The Event

So Many Choices: A workshop for trainers and dogs

Dog training is an activity which attempts to elicit, modify and control the behaviors of dogs. The trainer needs accurate information as well as physical skills and is obliged to make seemingly endless choices about methods, tools and priorities. From the initial choice of how to “get” the desired dog-behavior to occur, to later decisions about how to integrate the learned behavior into the dog’s repertoire and daily life, the trainer must consider practicality, expediency and the dog’s emotional welfare.

We trainers aspire to make the best choices possible. So we continue to educate ourselves by studying the science, watching great trainers in action, brainstorming ideas and then trying them out with our dogs, and by discussing concepts with colleagues. This workshop will include all these activities. We’ll combine lecture segments about the practical application of SMART (See, Mark and Reinforce Training) with plenty of dog-training exercises, demonstrations, games and time for questions. Please consider this weekend workshop as an opportunity to participate in a “trainers’ think-tank.”
