If you question what to do when your dog is feeling unsure or behaving badly in life or competition settings then you need the “Re-defining Leadership” webinar I’m teaching on Thursday at 6pm PT.
I break down how you should respond to your dog under various circumstances into two main categories. Structure the dog or offer choice. I tell you exactly what you should consider when you’re unsure so that you can come to a good decision quickly and easily. I give you specific steps that you can train in advance along with ways to handle “stuff” in the moment that you have not trained for. You could watch this webinar several times and pick up new things each time.
It is incredibly important to me that handlers exhibit sureness when their dog needs them. In my mind, it is the number one most important thing you can do. The most important thing!
I have worked very very hard to make this webinar accessible to anyone who wants to do better in this regard, both beginner and experienced trainers alike.
If you find yourself struggling with how to handle your dog outside of formal set ups, take this webinar. It will help. If your dog is reactive then take this webinar (as well as Amy Cook’s webinar, walking with reactive dogs, which takes place immediately before mine.) If your dog is fearful then take this webinar. If you are socializing a new puppy and want to make good choices then take this webinar. If your dog has meltdowns at the dog show then take this webinar. If you are a professional trainer trying to help your students then take this webinar. If life takes you by surprise and you stand there not knowing what to do, then you, more than anyone, need to take this webinar! This webinar will help you. I promise.
