You’ll learn how stimuli trigger behavior and how to control them to keep a lid on problems. Peak performance is not so much about the stuff a dog knows as it is about the relationship between dog and human. Steve will show you how to build a joyful relationship with your dog. You’ll learn how new scientific discoveries bolster what great trainers have always done and at the same time smash myths and old wives’ tales. You’ll find out how to make anticipation your ally instead of you r enemy. You’ll learn proven strategies for banishing ring nerves and other forms of performance jitters. By practicing with video clips and live dogs, you’ll see the value of systematically building fluency and generalization thro ugh six dimensions. You’ll also learn how to make better training decisions by “thin-slicing” the information dogs and their people give you. You’ll see how to mingle science and technique to produce an artfully trained dog who is a joy to live and work with.
