HMW Professional is an 8-week online course designed to provide animal training professionals the skills for shaping balance and precise movement to increase their animals’ confidence and fitness as well as improve trainers’ observation and training skills. This course will expand the skills you can teach your clients and their learners. Examples of how to teach particular movement exercises are targeted at primarily canines and other quadrupeds; however, homework can be submitted for any species. There will be several video examples using other species both in the lectures and via homework submissions from other participants. To meet this goal, the following objectives will be explored: Objectives - Provide details on how and why trainers can be even better trainers while teaching and using precise movement. - Demonstrate foundation movement-exercises and why we are doing them. - Show how our alignment and orientation affect our learner. - Demonstrate and provide details of the weight shifts that need to happen in order to shape movement. - Explain and demonstrate active-stillness and how to teach it. - Show what physical balance looks like and explain its importance. - Proprioception and why it's important and how to improve it. -Explain and demonstrate the many aspects of reinforcement that are at play in precision movement.
