Now What Do I Do?!
Is your dream to have a true partnership with your dog? To truly be a team? Are you always questioning what you should be doing? Do you know your responsibilities and your dog’s responsibilities? Do you know when, why, and how you should be fulfilling these responsibilities?
Do you want a more independent dog? Or a dog who listens to your suggestions? Do you feel like you cannot have both?
Do you have a disconnect or problem in your searches and cannot figure out how to fix it?
Are you frustrated with everyone telling you to do different things, pulling you apart and making you question every decision?!
This 6-week online course is designed to give you some solutions!
Using diagnostics of your searches, you will learn how to figure out when, if and how you should be supporting your dog and yourself to become the best team possible.
Learn how to better breakdown and evaluate you searches, how to make a plan and then know when you should help, how you should help, and most importantly when NOT helping is the most support you can give!
IMPORTANT: This course is suitable for all levels from puppies on primary to seasoned competition dogs. All exercises can be modified for the appropriate level. Expect to join in and be part of the discussion!
