    Will you need a demo dog for this class? My dog is a hunter and is constantly sniffing low to the ground and is pulling the leash the whole time we're walking. She's not treat motivated at all and only wants to hunt. She reacts very loudly and usually wants to chase when we come across a squirrel, rabbit, or outside cat but we keep walking and get past it and I praise her when she's quiet and stops reacting and that has helped a lot.

    I'd love to know more about this workshop! I have a dog who likes to chase squirrels and have tried lots of positive reinforcement with him (treats) but he completely ignores me. Will other techniques be covered outside of treats?

      When the squirrel is present, we have reached what I like to call the Olympics. Training can't happen then. Often treats don't work. Now we are faced with the 'event' which will test our training. In class we will cover how to train and prepare and condition for the 'event' BEFORE it happens. Make sense? I don't think of treats as a technique but rather as a motivation. But motivation alone isn't enough in the toughest situations - as we have all found out at one time or another! Make sense?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
