SEMINAR: GAMES FOR CREATING CONFIDENCE IN YOUR DOG

Based on Leslie McDevitt’s Control Unleashed Program.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

If you have a dog who seems shy or unsure around unfamiliar people and/or other dogs, or who barks from excitement when he sees them, you will want to attend this seminar. The seminar will not pertain to dogs who lunge/pull or snap/growl at other people or dogs. Those issues are better dealt with through a vet behaviorist and one-on-one privates with a trainer.

WHAT WILL BE COVERED

Games and exercises will be demonstrated that you can play with your dogs to increase their confidence and lessen their anxiety. Some of the reasons dogs react inappropriately to other people and dogs is they lack confidence in themselves (or their owners) or are easily excited at the sight of other dogs/people. This will be a presentation only. No dogs other than the ones who will demonstrate the exercises will be allowed to be present.
