Brain Training Series

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 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 FUN tricks and behaviours.

The topics covered will range from perfecting individual tricks to advanced training, such as cuing, shaping and behaviour chains. Behaviours and concepts will increase in difficulty as you progress through this series.

In this ALL-LEVELS CLASS you can revisit the program any time it runs, you don’t have to wait for the next level to be scheduled! This program is self-paced, allowing you to progress through training at your own pace, focusing on what is important to you.

A sneak peak at the behaviours… unroll a carpet, ring a bell, blow bubbles under water, “puppy dog eyes”, karate kicks, jump through a hoop… and more!
