Teacher or Trainer? Coach or dog parent? Who are we to our dogs?
What are we to our dogs?
On this episode of Learning About Dogs, Kay Laurence and Sue McGuire go through the labels we give ourselves and what others apply to those of us who work with dogs.
If you share your life with a dog, then you are a dog trainer.
“What is a Trainer?”
“Extremely fine skills in a very specific specialty.” Is that maybe the correct description for a trainer?
We want you know of some new courses coming up from Learning About Dogs online.
This course is for people who relish learning as a community with a plentiful opportunities to travel with new eyes and change the way you look at things.
We shall go Beyond and Above the standard recipes that will generate many Aha moments, engineer more questions, dissolve assumptions and challenge habits. This is not a course for replicating demonstration but identifying how to learn from demonstration, select critical points, identify skill sets, build clear task analysis, explore the concepts, adapt and apply the concepts to new conditions.
The Art of Teaching Dogs is a six week in person course offered by Sue McGuire at the Humane Society of Sonoma County, in Santa Rosa, California.
The Level 1 Class starts February 29th
