"The Art of Teaching Dogs" Level 1: Saturday February 29th
We start with how the teaching process works and develops into clarity of understanding for our dogs. This first level class explores the reinforcement process. We will investigate how rewards compliment a behavior. Reinforcement types, delivery and patterns are in play when developing behaviors. Only with a deep understanding of what dogs find motivating, can we begin to unravel the mysteries of how dogs learn.
