All too often, “training the dog” is about dealing with the habits we don’t like. Isn’t it time to train for fun, for enrichment, and for relationship?
The Brain Training Series is an open-enrolment series of classes – meaning you can start any time that suits your schedule. The class focuses on increasing your dog’s receptivity to you and capacity to learn in order to work through various stages of difficulty and complexity of behaviours.
The topics covered will range from perfecting individual training exercises to advanced training concepts, such as cuing, shaping and behaviour chains. Behaviours and concepts will increase in difficulty as you progress through the various Grades of this series.
The Brain Training Series can best be described as a “souped-up tricks class”!
A sneak peak at the behaviours… position changes at a distance, unroll a carpet, ring a bell, blow bubbles under water, chin rest on the ground, karate kicks, jump through a rolling hoop… progress through all the grade levels to learn all this and more!
