A workshop can use games to improve on reliability of cues with your dog. Playing games is an enjoyable and non-threatening way to objectively quantify performance and fine-tune all basic obedience skills, including attention, position changes, stays, following, heeling, and precision work. It’s an easy and fun way to achieve goals.
Workshops can teach you how to:
- Train your dog to respond reliably, even when off leash, distracted and at a distance
- Use games to motivate yourself and your dog
- Quantify training progress to determine what your dog has learned and what training methods are most effective
- Reinforce cues with games such as Musical Chairs, Recall Races, Loose Leash Races, Greeting Exercises and Parkour tricks.
- Proof stays for a wide variety of odd and unexpected situations that would otherwise cause your dog to react.
Workshops are at Canine Campus, 2109A Louie Dr, West Kelowna, BC. (beside NorVal Rental 2103 Louie Dr)
