Here is Amy R.'s Experience of the Canine Coaching Course (Complete Puppy Package)
Bo is exactly who we needed. He showed not only myself but our children how to train our pup in such a positive way, it amazes me! I’ve always leaned towards the “Alpha” training philosophy but after our 7 weeks with Bo, never again. …
It’s a wonderful thing to see a dog respond so positively to training from even my 9 year old son. Bo has given us the knowledge to continue giving our pup the positive, stress-free structure we all desire. It’s such an amazing thing to witness our pup learn to correct his own unwanted behavior in a non-violent way with just a few minutes of positive training that we learned from Bo. He gives you the tools to create an amazing bond with your pet. His methods become part of your every day life that before you know it, you aren’t taking 15 minutes here and there to teach. He helps you to interact with you pet that the positive reinforcement training becomes part of daily life. Before you know it, you and your pet are happily living together.
I just can not express how wonderful our time with Bo has been. I’m looking forward to taking Odin to Puppy Gym and watching the magic happen again. Best decision we made for us and Odin. I recommend spending time with Bo to everyone!
The Perfect Course for any New Dog or Puppy
I designed this private dog training course around a simple question: What do I wish that someone had taught me when I adopted Loki and brought him into my life?
I made a lot of mistakes back then. I have since learned how I could have done things so much better.
Now, you can benefit from my personal experience and raise your dog to thrive in your household and to become a powerful source of joy in your life.
The earlier you start, the better. This course will help you to communicate clearly with your dog so and head off problem behaviors before they start. Let’s strengthen your bond and deepen your mutual love for each other.
If you want to integrate your new pup into your family using only loving methods, then this course is for you.
What's the Agenda for the Canine Coaching Course
Session 1: The BAsics
We begin with an overview of the science that drives my dog training. We will discuss how dogs learn, as well as how training methods affect dogs and what they learn. You will come to understand why a truly science-based approach is also a force-free approach, which avoids the use of intimidation, fear, pain, and violence.
Then, you will learn the proper way to use markers and reinforcers. If you are familiar with “clicker training”, a clicker is a form of marker. In the course, you will learn how to do “clicker training” without needing to use an actual clicker.
Our first major exercises revolve around the concept of “luring”. You will learn about how lures work, how to use them properly, and how to fade them out so you don’t run the danger of “bribing” your dog to perform tasks.
Session 2: Shaping Behaviors
In our second session, we move beyond luring and into shaping. Success breeds success, so I want to set your dog up for success. I will show you how to work in increments to “shape” the specific behaviors that you want. As you see your dog’s performance improve, you will be able to see how powerful incremental learning is, and you will come to realize how you can shape nearly any behavior.
Session 3: Impulse Control
In our third session, I’m going to help you understand why your dog sometimes seems “out of control” and show you ways to work with that energy. When I say “with”, I don’t mean “against”. In other words, I’m not looking at ways to stop the unproductive energy, but rather ways to redirect and transform it into productive energy. As you come to understand your dog better and engage your dog with impulse-control games, your dog will become more attentive and responsive in real-life situations.
Session 4: Strengthening Your Bond
The relationship shared between human and canine companions is the foundation of all your training. Let’s nurture and strengthen that bond. In this last session, I will show you some practical exercises that are specifically geared toward strengthening your dog’s ability to trust you. Along with that, I’m going to introduce you to some concepts and techniques to strengthen all of the behaviors that your dog has learned through this class (and indeed will learn throughout life as you continue to train).
The Deluxe Version extends the course by two sessions (a total of 6 sessions). Session #5 will focus on complex behaviors. What we work on can vary according to the needs of the household. Usually, we work on loose-leash walking and relaxing on a mat. The Session #6 will introduce you to the basics of working with emotions, which is important for fearful, shy, and aggressive dogs.
Complete Puppy Package
If you have a puppy, this is by far your best option. The Complete Puppy Package includes everything in the Deluxe Version, plus it includes my Intro to Puppies class, as the first session—at a discounted rate! (A total of 7.5 sessions.)
