If you have ever struggled with understanding your dog and why it does or does not do certain things, then this seminar is for you. The K9 Kounselor (Larry Neilson) has over thirty years of hands on experience working with dogs. Larry has carefully studied canine behaviors and most importantly what he refers to as “behavior drivers”
This seminar is designed to help you become a better leader. A leader your dog will trust and respect.
During the course of this seminar Larry will discuss topics such as ; Philosophy, Equipment, The “Balanced Training” Method, Instinctual Stimuli, Fundamental rules, Phases of Training, Myths, the Dogs Senses, Energy, How Dogs Learn, Teaching vs Controlling, Pack Leaders and Pack Instincts, the Role of Confidence, Respect and How to Earn it, Behavior Drivers, and more. There will also be a live demonstration immediately following the seminar.
During the time I owned a pet supply store that employed 3 dog groomers I was able to observe groomers working with dogs which were relatively unruly for various reasons. Often the groomers would require my assistance to calm them. In doing so I would demonstrate different approaches to managing dogs that were misbehaving out of fear, aggression or just being overly excited.
This two hour presentation will address and explain many of the reasons dogs may misbehave at grooming shops and techniques that can be utilized to control them and make your job safer and easier.
Topics will include but not be limited to the following;
• Introducing a dog to the grooming shop – relaxation tips
• Lifting a dog (what not to do)
• Discipline vs. Punishment
• Managing aggressive behavior (do’s and don’ts)
• The timid dog
• The negative power of “NO”
• Question and answer period.
