How Police K9 Techniques Can Transform Your Everyday Training
Presented by: Steve White
This Video qualifies for 11 trainer CCPDT CEUs
This information-packed day with Steve White turns Police K9 training on its head to help you, the dog owner or trainer. You’ll learn new ways to read canine behavior and how to control stimuli–the triggers that effect behavior. (Are you working with a dog that always barks, or lunges at every child, old person with a walker or other dogs?)
After reviewing what K9 trainers look for in police dogs when they stimulate aggression, you will learn seven steps to reading any dog. By practicing with video clips and live dogs you’ll see the value of “thin-slicing” the information dogs and their people give you.
It’s a simple, effective, seven-step model (incorporating positive reinforcement) for helping dogs, owners and trainers to resolve behavior problems, while avoiding the two most common mistakes trainers make when problem solving. (Among which are asking more than the dog can deliver and not gathering sufficiently detailed information before proceeding.)
Technically, you’ll be learning all about “triggers” and “thresholds” of behavior–and how understanding them can make you anticipate situations that you used to dread!
