44 students are flying their way through the new 2 year course (although some may feel a little unsafe taking their feet off the ground). In the words of one of our mentors “I can’t believe the quality of the discussion - brilliant”. It is inspiring for everyone involved and I am looking forward to the assignments due soon.
We have space for 4 more students for this next Unit Behaviour, enrolment is required before Apr 14, although asap is the recommendation to allow for brain integration.
or is the “affect?” Aach, “The tools we use affect the way we communicate”.
I have now populated a whole community for those we feel more comfortable in that environment:
Of course I also need a personal page to be able to function as a fb personality, and I needed friends to be a REAL person: - KayLaurence Wagmore is my hideaway.
At the Barn - 2015 dates
We had a wonderful couple of days with Emma Parsons Teaching the Reactive Dog Class. It is always inspiring to listen to One Who Has Done That. Sharing her experiences and practical knowledge can give you a boost for your own classes. Then you have the opportunity to apply it … and it works! Yay reinforcement, for dogs, for us, for all.
The very popular Super Trainer courses will be running through the year in 5 days, and monthly formats. I am very pleased to announce for the serial learners that you get your fourth run of the course for FREE!
Many of you want to continue to work on your skills and keep moving forward so we now have the Extra Super Clicker Trainer days for those who have completed the course running regularly over the Winter.
Having been freshly milled by Merrick and experience the current Age of Objection I am sharing my learning in day workshops. Puppy One for those up to 6 months, or even thinking of future happiness, and Teenagers 6-16 months for those seriously questioning their sanity. Ideal if you want to come along with your own pup or teach classes - lots of ideas, which are probably a little Outside the Box.
New workshops to expand your thinking:
For the pleasure of discovery and your dog - dressage, building fitness through balance and deep practice. For the seriously fascinated. Five workshops over 5 months with much training in between.
Reinforcer Dynamics. May 3
I consider reinforcement the centre of any training plan. It is the daily good manners that show appreciation and maintains the lubrication of our relationships. It is not faded, intermittent or avoided under any conditions.
It is dynamic and multi-dimensional. It can be threaded through our interactions and sewn into the very fabric of the behaviours. Our passion for training often takes us into the worlds of performance. An environment where our training reinforcers are no long valid or obvious. With forethought and clear understanding of how the process affects behaviour we can ask for top quality performance that exceeds training expectations without damaging our relationship.
This workshops is a mix of presentation and opportunity to work with your dog to lay down the basics of multi-dimensional reinforcers. Limited to 6 participants with observer places available.
