Life skills is an excellent opportunity to learn about games based training and put this into practice! We will be covering various concepts every week which will boost you and your dog's relationship. Life skills is a great class to jump into after the puppy program or if you want to top up your training or find a new exciting way to train and have fun with your dog! Concepts that are covered Focus- a dog that listens and responds to you in exciting & distracting environments. We need our dogs to be solution seeking optimists who love their reinforcement rich lives. Boundary training- a life skill that in the face of excitement (e.g. visitors) they can listen and show self-control. These are especially important in multi-dog households! Positive pairings- build confidence and make novelty normal. So crucial for a happy dog! Leash off, game on- build a great relationship and off leash confidence Play- the value & importance of play Confidence- a confident dog will be ok with novel and ambiguous situations. Life can be very hard when your dog lacks confidence GrrrrrRIT- to have determination and desire to keep trying and keep going even when there is little or no reinforcement given Proximity- your dog will LOVE being close to you Fitness fun- helps with fitness and posture with the added benefit of boosting your relationship. Recall- achieving the dream... a dog that returns when called no matter what! Through 10 weeks of training you and your dog will have strategies and games to play to have a bounce back recall, a dog that doesn't pull on lead and you will also become aware of your dog's needs.
