This outdoor clinic will offer you a calculated and controlled way to fade in distractions and difficulty. We will practice off leash engagement (using training leads for those just beginning), whistle recall, ignoring other dogs and people, calling away from difficult distractions etc..
The event will be held snow, rain, or shine so please dress accordingly!

During this workshop we will take an interactive journey. Craig will talk and walk you through a proven, tried and tested step by step acronym-based system that will help you to use the joy of play to improve relationships, build confidence, create motivational focus and implement alternative forms of positive reinforcement. You will also learn how to avoid and overcome some of the common problems during play, such as over-arousal and problematic behaviors.
Handlers and spectators will further develop their understanding of canine behavior during periods of arousal. We will explore on the function of the behavior and the practical steps that we can take to help the dogs in our care.
During lecture Craig will walk us through an extremely informative, interactive, and practical work book with an acronym-based system for analyzing behavior and implementing an effective modification plan.
