Foundation course focusing on a scientific approach to animal training.
When was the last time you practiced your handling skills? How much time do you spend working on your timing, mechanics and control in relation to the time spent on your dog’s skills? Do you know that your dog’s skills are reflection of your own? Very often we forget how important it is to focus on our own preparation before even working with dogs. Being able to mark in time, properly delivery reinforcement is not a something extra, it’s our obligation as a trainer! Very often we expect from our dogs much more than from ourselves.
