Description

This workshop is ideal for dog lovers and industry pros who want a deep dive into behavior cases, both with the dogs in front of you and through presentations of real case studies from accomplished professionals. Get hands-on experience taking the topics taught in our other two workshops (training & behavior skills) and applying them at a more advanced level. Prerequisites This is a level 2 workshop, so students must have prior basic training experience or have graduated from one of the following two CATCH workshops: Professional Training Skills or Body Language, Behavior, & Problem Solving. If you have completed one of the above, but not both, we will ask you about your studies and experience in the topics of the other workshop. Highlights include: Get Assigned Behavior Cases – dogs with challenging issues that can be improved through training over the course of the week: Devise and document your management plan or behavior modification plan Assess and build various motivators/rewards: Human-dog play; teach a dog to tug with release cue; teach a dog to fetch (full retrieve sequence). Taking a professional and systematic approach to behavior problem solving. How to look at all factors that could be considered causes or triggers, how to apply management, how to apply behavior modification. Presentations of our professional trainers’ actual case studies so you can learn new ideas and gain deeper understanding of how to apply them in real situations. Understanding when and how you will want to use associative learning and behavior-consequence learning as part of your plan, all using force-free, reward-based methodology. Advanced Training: Get assigned a core set of behaviors to train based on the needs of the dog; train to a specific standard including generalization for multiple environments and situations; document your baseline and progressive steps as you and the dog advance; demonstrate proof of generalization Creating handouts for help with common problems: Info sheet; worksheet/checklist for client
