How can we improve our training skills? Emily created the seminar Refining Your Training Skills as her answer to this very question based on her own observations, research and insights from her experience in training dogs. The definition of ‘refine’ is to remove unwanted elements or to purify. We will dissect our training by pulling all the pieces apart and assessing each piece’s function separately. Emily will cover the importance of proactive training as well as provide solutions to training plans gone awry. This seminar will focus on how we can open our awareness and consciousness to our own actions and those of our dogs. We will investigate how drastic changes can occur from just the simple choice of marker, reinforcer, reinforcement delivery, reinforcement placement and what we do in between training. The majority of the seminar is based not on what to train, but how to train. However, Emily will use workshop exercises like teaching a ‘keep going’ signal and precision heel-work to demonstrate these concepts.
