Off cue – off control? Vol 1!

Developing skills you and your learner need, to train exactly what you dream off.

In this course we will work with breaking down all the things you would like your learner to able to do, into single behaviors. We focus on developing multiple of the skills you and your learner need, to teach them exactly what you dream off.

We do this by shaping and capturing behaviors, and we work with them off cue, to make sure we get the exact behavior.

The focus of this course is to get the learner started on offering behaviors. We will try to build a big repetoire of behaviors, so that our learners get creative and become an very active part of our training.

If you want to start all the behaviors this course covers, there is going to be quite a lot of work – so be prepared for that.

The behaviors we will cover in this course are:

  • Focus
  • Targeting
  • Sit
  • Backing
  • Heel position
  • Recall
  • Heeling
  • Down
  • Stand
  • Stay
  • Doggie-zen
  • Hold it
  • Release
  • Bark
  • Jump
  • Search

Under each behavior box, there are several behaviors. We will go through a few of them, and you are always free to chose which behaviors you would like to focus on.

We will also discuss the topics of:

  • Off cue
  • Fluency
  • Doggie-zen
  • Cues

Pocket it! This course focus will be working without treats in hand and helping as little as possible, without leaving your animal frusrated.

We give the learner the highest rage of choice we can, and teach the learner to actively take part in the training.

This will be part 1, where you get introduced to all of the behaviors, and then select 1 to work with from every box.  In vol. 2, we will work more on fluency and adding variations to the behaviors.

This course is suitable for you, if you would like your dog to offer you more behaviors and like to shape them in the direction you want. If you already have all the above behaviors off cue, part 2 would be a suitable option for you.

The idea as such "attach a cue when the behavior is fluent" cannot even grasp the concept and possibilities which are revealed by the way of working of Catja and her course "Off Cue, Off Control". Never before became it so clear to me that the one behaviour builds on the one before. You might read my sentence and think "of course …". I can only say that there is a different level and experience behind this way of working which challenged me more than my leaner (I have to admit). I really enjoyed the quietness of this work and I became so much more aware of my body in relation to my learner and in the environment.
When I got stuck Catja was always there for me with an alternative approach. She is a very thoughtful and compassionate instructor and she supported me in a wonderful way.
This course has more than 6 weeks material (at least for me) and will accompany me so much longer.
Catja, thank you so much for your warm and understanding support which I really appreciated very much.

This is one of the best courses I've attended. I learnt many things that I didn't know, I learnt from my mistakes and I started to look at training with new eyes. Catja is an amazing teacher, she's always happy and kind. She helped me every single day, she taught me to divide behaviors in small parts so that the dog can really understand the process. She has been overwhelmed by my questions but she always replied, no matter what. Even when language was a barrier, she found the time to show me some things through videos. She soon understood me and my dog so she could find the best solutions for our problems or mistakes. And this is what I expect from a teacher. I am sorry, I'm not an English native speaker otherwise I would have more words to explain what a wonderful person and teacher Catja is. This is my first Tromplo course and I am totally satisfied :))
