Inject “Skill Power” into Your Training
Please join us for a 2-day seminar with Michele Pouliot focusing on skills that put power into your positive reinforcement training. Improve attention, attitude, response and reliability in your dog during both training and performance. The skills addressed in this seminar will include:
- Attention, attitude and response (the formula for great performances)
- Marker timing and communication of the desired behavior
- The power of holding the marker as a communicator
- Advanced strategies of reward delivery and handling
- What to do when training goes wrong
Improved communication speeds learning, increases precision and increases the joy of both dog and human. While the skills learned in this seminar are powerful for dog sport performance goals, these skills will improve all aspects of your dog training including conformation showing, carting, water work, tricks, and play and manners at home.
