Yoga is defined as the stilling of the senses. It is a practice which involves people taking and holding specific postures, focusing on the present, and working on physical stimulation as a pathway to still themselves mentally. Real Dog Yoga shares the same aims [but for dogs], as well as improving focus, body consciousness, and dog-human connection. TOPICS: This webinar is focused on some of the aspects that are beyond the postures discussed in Jo's book. She'll go into mat work and how to create training dialogues. She hopes to discuss the following points in the seminar (subject to change): What is real dog yoga? Why do some dogs fail in traditional training environments - even force-free ones? HOW do we know when something in the training environment is poisonous to our dogs? Contra Freeloading: Trusting the desire to work Eyes on the prize: how watching food can remove choice with vulnerable dogs What happens to the brain when we stop and put our tools down? What is meant by a mutual training dialogue? HOW do we train using the Yoga protocol The smart way to use a visual discriminator Base positions and using stillness to start on the right foot Breaking as part of the process of learning Measuring pace Troubleshooting when things go wrong
