Distractions and - SQUIRREL! - using them in training

One of our more popular webinars is back - giving you the opportunity to participate in a new live Q&A.

*This webinar will be recorded, you will have access to the recording for a year.

The world is full of distractions for our dogs. This can make training challenging, even frustrating for us, and for our dogs.

Yet distractions offer us the best opportunities to strengthen behaviors and teach our dogs to focus IF we know how to introduce distractions in a way that promotes thoughtful choice, builds confidence and is respectful of our individual dogs.

This webinar covers:

  • Who Are You? This Elemental Question explores how each dog perceives their world through sensory inputs (visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory) and social interactions
  • The Stimulus Gradient The dog trainer’s “mixing board” blends distance, duration and intensity in every situation
  • Distraction Hierarchy Understanding how to use thin slices for productive use of distractions
  • Simulations Making your own squirrels! or, seriously, how to simulate real life situations

Effective training begins with an understanding of the individual dog, and a clear plan of how to introduce distractions in a way that supports good choices by the dog and deepens his understanding of “Even though. . .”

This is a replay of a previously recorded webinar, AND Suzanne is doing a new live Q&A session afterwards, so jump in with your questions and enjoy the lively discussion. The recording of the webinar will already be in the course for you to watch ahead of time if you wish. REPLAY at 1pm EST on September 1st.  

This product is included for our Silver and Gold Members - please check your discussion group for information on how to register for free.
