The Train The Trainer Program is designed for people who enjoy working with their dog and want to understand the "Why?" behind dog training as they learn to train their dog...people who want to go beyond doing obedience exercises just because the instructor told them to...people who want to figure out what makes their dog tick! This program delves a little deeper into dog psychology and learning than most dog training programs do.
So...why do dogs behave as they do? How do they learn best? How can we get them to change their behavior? Is positive reinforcement really the best training method? (Yes). What's the story on dominance? (It's not quite what you may have seen on TV and misunderstanding it can be dangerous). Is it ever ok to "correct" a dog? (Yes, as long as you don't use methods that cause fear, pain, intimidation or emotional harm. This is especially important with a new dog or a dog that has a checkered past).
Part private seminar at your kitchen table and part hands-on training, Train The Trainer sessions are conducted at your home, with your dog as the case study. Although your dog will benefit from lots of training during every lesson, you will be the primary beneficiary because you'll learn the universal, foundational principles of reward-based dog training. That way, you can train any and every dog you ever own!
