Brenda will share her unique approach for accessing instinctive dog behaviors and changing the paradigm. Learn how to see situations, as the dog perceives them, thus equipping you with a wider variety of tools to work with dogs. Discover how emotion affects the training process. Brenda will help us to understand Dog Body Language. Both the experienced professional trainer and the serious dog owner will appreciate Brenda’s sense of humor as well as her wide base of experience Among the topics Brenda will discuss: Positive Reinforcement and its proper use; exercises for Reactive Dogs; discussion of problems in training/showing and using the Get Connected Protocols to address trust, respect and tension issues, especially for those of us who compete! Brenda approaches the subject of dog behavior with compassion, understanding, wisdom and humor. Brenda is down to earth with both her explanations and her teaching. Her seminars are well spoken of and met with rave reviews by her colleagues, her students and we suspect, by the many dogs whose lives have been improved and even spared by what their owners have learned. It is easy to find information about teaching a dog to sit or lie down or come when called. But there has not been a coherent plan for teaching someone how to reliably evolve a sounder/deeper relationship with his or her dog. Get Connected Exercises are designed around bodywork and a series of relationship-based exercises to teach dogs about personal space, and teach owners about observing and guiding "micro-behaviors".
