Day One:  Dog Training Necessities:

  • Behavioral wellness
  • Reinforcement strategies for clear communication
  • 4 steps necessary prior to work
  • Consent/ability to opt into work
  • Planning for a solid work/training session
  • Stationing/stand by cue

Day Two:  Implementation of Necessities into agility training

  • Reinforcement strategy refresher
  • 4 steps necessary prior to work
  • Planning for the session
  • Problem solving with working teams (working teams will provide Samantha with the background on a “problem” they are experiencing, and we will develop a plan for each team)

This seminar will be more of a lecture format than the typical handling seminars.  Following the lecture for each topic, working teams will be given time to practice what was covered in the lecture.

Note:  Since day two builds on day one, registration priority will be given to those registering for both days.
