ZEN LOGIC: Making Sense of Self-Control

This day will be devoted to exploring the concept of control and how it applies to living with and training our dogs. How do we gain and maintain control yet still allow our dogs freedom and choice without undue pressure or coercion? How can we help our dogs understand that waiting for permission to get or take what they want is the better choice than just grabbing it?
Deb will talk about the concept of control and using a positive reinforcement- based approach to teach it. We will introduce and practice a variety of control exercises using either food or toys (depending on your dog). All exercises are built around the zen concept that “to get what you want you must give up what you want”. However, we are careful to avoid conflict and frustration throughout the process. These exercises are important for dogs of all ages, types, and personalities.
