About The Event
Contrary to popular belief, dog training is not about controlling a dog's behavior. In fact, it has a lot more to do with letting go of the need for control, i.e. what our ego wants. Once we allow ourselves to learn from our dogs, through humility, patience, and creativity, what our dogs need from us in order to bring out the best in them.
Relationship-centered dog training is a practice in the art and science of communication, interconnection, and compromise. A dog and his human are both teacher and student, leader and follower, in each and every interaction between them. As is the case with any healthy relationship, a strong partnership with a dog takes hard work, dedication, and consistency; and is rooted in trust, mutual respect, and love.
In this workshop, we will demonstrate these principles with our resident therapy dogs, and will discuss problem behaviors, and how to apply the aforementioned principles in resolving them. We will learn how to alter our own behavior as a means by which to help our dogs be their best selves. We will also have fun, laugh, and enjoy whatever the dogs have in store for our educational adventure on the day of the event!
Pet dogs will stay home, so all you need to bring is an open mind and any questions you'd like to explore!
