Using Pattern Games and Start Button Behaviors to make dogs comfortable in busy, city environments... Explore the popular Pattern Games from Leslie’s latest Control Unleashed book, Reactive to Relaxed. These games create a “safety net” of predictability that will help your dog process information about challenging environments from a place of confidence. Learn how to harness the power of these simple yet powerful counter conditioning games to help dogs feel comfortable in a busy urban environment. Using patterns, dogs can learn to incorporate the sights and sounds of urban life into a system of cues that feels safe and reliable. These games can help dogs that are reactive, sensitive to city noises, or struggle with anxiety from city living. Bonus - learn about how to use Start Buttons in Leslie’s context of Cooperative Counter Conditioning as a way to empower your dog to direct their own learning experience.
