Ever wonder what was going on “behind the scenes”? To learn from someone else’s training, it helps to understand what’s really going on in that session. The same is true when you’re trying to help someone with their own training. Identifying the principles and strategies involved is fundamental to understanding what is really happening in a session. How do you reach this understanding? How do you observe and what questions can you ask? Hannah Branigan, Emelie Johnson Vegh, Eva Bertilsson, and Chirag Patel love nothing more than to watch each other train. But there is so much more going on than simple voyeurism. VOYEURISM + INSIGHT! We put together this series of 4 live training events, to give ourselves a chance to explore the details of training and show the thought processes underlying our training choices (for good or bad!). We live on different parts of the planet, so we’ve never really trained together in person. However, we do spend quite a lot of time discussing behavior and training! We’re all genuinely curious about how to best observe and discuss how other trainers go about their training sessions. We want to dive into ways to observe, think, and talk about training. During each event, we’ll attempt to articulate our training process and work our dogs (or other animals) live, in real-time – while you watch! We’ll then go on to discuss the training. What was going on? What worked and what didn’t? Which details were critical, and which were irrelevant? What decisions were made, and why? There might even be flowcharts! This is your Backstage Pass to some of the most twisted minds in the positive reinforcement training world. Will we use our powers for good or evil? There is only one way to find out. Join us live and bring your own questions for discussion. Let’s help each other learn and make the world a better place one training session at a time.
